Book Review: Chalet Girl Plays Cupid, by Lorraine Wilson.

A short story based on The Chalet Girl Series. I haven’t read any of the other books in this series, but this book worked fine as a stand alone. Though it does make you want to read ALL the other books in the series too.

The description:

A match made on the slopes…

After a messy break up that’s left her homeless, jobless and single, temporary chalet girl Emily needs a fresh start! So when best friend Holly asks her to help out before the start of the winter season at the exclusive Chalet Repos in Verbier, Emily jumps at the chance. What broken heart can’t be fixed by après ski cocktails?

Verbier seems like the perfect escape, until Emily meets super-sexy and darkly brooding winter athlete Jake. She’s meant to be avoiding men at all costs, but the spark between her and Jake is sizzling! As she finds herself increasingly left alone with Jake, Emily begins to wonder if Cupid has paid a visit to Chalet Repos…!

My Thoughts:

This is a nice easy read that I enjoyed over a lazy evening snuggled up with a blanket, cups of tea and some chocolate. I have started to really enjoy short stories recently, you get to read and finish a book with (usually) a great sense of satisfaction and enjoyment. This was certainly the case with this book.

The book was escapism complete. OK, so life might not have been great for Emily, the main character. But she is living in a ski resort chalet with her friend and a hunky guy. The place sounds idyllic and I was transported away to a snowy holiday place. 

Emily’s life was a bit of a mess, but she remained positive and focussed on trying to make someone else happy. She is a great character. As this is the only book I have read in the story, I don’t know if I will hear more of Emily or more about Holly and Scott who seemed to own the chalets? But I do know that I really enjoyed the read, the characters and the description of where the stories are based. It is definitely a place I want to re visit.

I have just added a lot of books to my tbr pile, as I want to read plenty more of this series

 If you want to read this book, or have already read it, please comment below what you thought of it and let me know if the rest of the series is just as good?

This book is currently available free on Amazon:

Happy reading.
