For today's post, you're in for a triple treat....you not only get a book review, but a Q&A with the author and a chance to win your very own copy of the book! (Exciting, right?) I had actually seen this title in stores once or twice as the brillant pink cover is definitely eye-catching, but I had not had the opportunity to snag a copy for my own reading pleasure. Thanks to Jana at HarperCollins and her matching capabilities, the title and I found our own place in readers heaven. Without further adieu, today's book choice is....
That's right! Best friend Christie has always wanted to win the coveted crown at the Snow Queen competition and this is her year to enter. The problem? Christie has a bit of a confidence issue when seeing things through and so she not only entered herself in the competition, but Aubrey as well! Let's see, sports loving tom-boyish girl plus a girly-girl pageant competition...equals a recipe for potential disaster! It's No worries! Aubrey is there to support her friend so win or lose, she'll be A-OK! Well, that is until Layla Chamberlain begins her attempts to sabotage Christie and sparks Aubrey's competitive instincts. The satin gloves are about to come off, but who will the ultimate winner be?
Okay, so when I first heard the book I was matched with for today's post, I wasn't sure what to think. I mean, the title could go so many ways. Once I began reading though, I can honestly say I was happy for the YA chick-lit type break. (You need that sometimes from the heavier fantasy-laden reads, you know?)
This is the perfect book for a weekend escape. You get to bond with your new girlfriends Christie and Aubrey, see the dark and light side of little-miss-perfect Layla Chamberlain (love her or not-so-much-love her, you gotta love the flippancy her character shows when she knows who her audience is....it's on rank with Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde!), revel in the first notes of potential love with Grayson (whom I dare say would definitely be a site for sore eyes!), and hope against hope for that rare appearance of snow! Being Southern state bound myself, I can totally sympathize with Aubrey. I've lived where there was PLENTY of snow, but just when you want it...it decides to play hide and seek without telling you where to find it. All in all, a fun little romp for your next reading adventure (in my humble opinion, of course).
Enough of my rambling....let's get on to the good stuff! We've got a special treat indeed! May I introduce....a special Q&A session with none other than author Emma Harrison! (cue the applause.....okay, you may stop applauding now....people are staring, plus it makes it hard to read....)
