    Working at a Resort

    The first in a brand new series already has the winter steaming up. Three girls must take care of their guests in a condo, as a maid, a chef, and a host. Dove, Melissa, and Harley also hope for a little down time to hit the slopes and maybe find themselves a hottie (except for Dove who is missing her boyfriend like crazy). All of them have a secret about their life before the winter, but that was the past and it's so over! Get ready for some adventures and...maybe some failures.

    love Emily Franklin, I've read everything she's written for YA. And this book was a little bit more like the Au Pairs than her other books, but fabulous none the less - drama, work issues, friendships, secrets, and boys

    It's one winter vacation three girls will never forget, even if they may want to. <BR/><BR/>First there's Harley, who quickly packed her bags to get away from her life, which basically took place in a trailer, so she can have a little fun and excitement. With a bad attitude, Harley doesn't really care about her job, even if it is the top job that everyone wants -- hostess. It helps to have good looks. Harley can't believe her luck, even if she doesn't show it. She is finally able to start a whole new life, hopefully complete with some rich and famous friends, and a hot boyfriend on her arm. <BR/><BR/>Then there is Melissa, the girl from Australia who loves to follow by the book and believes everything she reads. It's her first time at Les Trois but definitely not her first time around this type of scenery. Her ultimate goal is to forget about everything that has happened to her with a certain professional skier and find something else to worry about, like learning how to cook, since that is her job and she has no idea how to. Being able to get over her ex seemed easy, especially since her encounter with a guy named JMB leaves her completely breathless. But, then she found out that the one person she did not think she would see just happens to make his way to the slopes at Les Trois. <BR/><BR/>Last but not least is Lily. To all her old rich friends, Lily was her name but now, in a whole new environment complete with people who have never known her, Lily is now Dove. Unfortunately for Dove, she received the lowest job on the Les Trois working ladder, that of maid. But it is completely fine with her since all she wants is to earn money so she can see Will, the guy she cares about the most. <BR/><BR/>All three girls, who get off on the wrong foot in the very beginning, will soon find friends in one another. All want to have a good time, while trying to keep their jobs, and all hope that what they wanted to leave behind will not find their way back to them. <BR/><BR/>Fans of Emily Franklin's THE PRINCIPLES OF LOVE series will not want to miss out on this new one, CHALET GIRLS. BALANCING ACTS is not only heartwarming but is a story that shows us the true meaning of friendship, especially with people who we never thought we would be friends with, and how all of our lives are full of slopes -- we just need to be ready for the ride. Grab a cup of cocoa and a warm blanket, because this is one winter read you do not want to miss.
