    This is the third novel by this author and it is as endearing



    This is the third novel by this author and it is as endearing as her other books. Kaya , this wordsmith of a woman, meets all expectations in this wonderful gem of a novel.

    The story begins with Jill Anthony, the main character, coming home after a long day at work to find the worst kind of betrayal. She has already had a devastating tragedy that she is trying to work through. These two things make her decide to run away from home. Just the clothes on her back , the nurse shoes she is wearing and the change in her pocket is all she has .She decides the only place she knows to go is HOME: Sparkle. She lived there in her teens and loved the snowy mountains.

    Jill gets a job working on the snowy slopes and meets several characters.She meets a special character named Cassie Jones,10 yrs old, who she baby sits while her widowed father works as an E.M.T. on the slopes . This opens up all kinds of possibilites. Mike Jones is one good looking character. Or should we say MAN !!!. There are several men available that live on the slopes and work the ski season.One of the men, Tom, has a delightful outlook and theory on male and female dating and sex.That theory will make the reader laugh out loud.

    There is also a character named Lisa Carlucci who is re-thinking her own life . She is Jill's best friend .She is thinking maybe she does not want to treat her body like the Holiday Inn anymore. She wants more from the relationship she has with men.Will she be able to hold out and get it?

    This author has carved these characters so well you would want to reach out and touch them.This novel made me laugh out loud many times and brought a tear to my eye a few times. This novel makes the reader feel like you are on the slopes skiing down the mountain yourself and feeling that cold snow.

    There are three people at the crossroads of heartbreak and healing.Will three lives change this winter in Sparkle,Colorada?You will need to read the book to find out.This novel does not disappoint.

    I highly recommend this novel . A must read .A Pulpwood queen pick (bonus) for march 2013.

    Strangely and good read.

    Interesting book with lots of twists and turns. Characters introduced slowly to keep the pace going nicely. All is revealed by the end of the book and the plot picks up pace half way thru so you need stick with it. We read this for our book club and was able to talk with the author, brings up lots of interesting discussions.

    Enjoyed reading this book.

    I loved the characters and story line. Janis Owens is a creative writer. She wrote a rich tale about the deep heart of the Florida south. I loved this book and the recipes of some classic southern dishes that is added at the end of the book.
