A delightful new novel of love and friendship from Karen Aldous…
Ginny is alone now after losing her husband, so her friends (her F.L.O.W.E.R.S) decide with his first memorial imminent, learning to ski in the Swiss Alps would be a great distraction for her.
What Ginny’s friends fail to add into the equation however, is their own distractions!
The baggage they carry with them not only threatens their skiing but scales mountainous emotions throughout the trip.
The questions then are…can their friendships survive, and can Ginny ever trust enough to love again?
I really enjoyed the setting for this one and I love the cover too!
The book was well written and I thoroughly enjoyed the story and getting to know the different characters and I loved that the focus of the book was older women and not those in their 20s and 30s which seem to be so common in this genre of books at the moment – it was a really lovely change!
For me this was a lovely book to curl up on the settee with a blanket and a warm drink! A really enjoyable story – 4 stars from me for this one!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Karen Aldous enjoys village life on the edge of the north-downs in Kent with easy access to the buzz of London. Not only does she love the passive pleasures of reading and writing, she also craves the more active pursuits with her family and friends such as walking, cycling and skiing especially when they involve food and wine!
Much of Karen’s inspiration comes from her travels and meeting people. The UK, France, Greece, Switzerland, Italy and parts of the USA and Asia are just some you will experience in her books to date. However, wherever she goes, new characters emerge in ‘Karen’s World’ screaming at her to tell their stories; past or present. She loves to write about strong independent women who can direct their own lives – but struggle to control them! And, of course there’s always a gorgeous hunk or two!
