I really enjoyed this skating story and felt the author did a remarkable job in describing the skating routines and everything having to do with the skating world with such perfection. I enjoyed getting to know her characters and I felt that she molded them into well-rounded people that her readers could relate to. Although having a relationship blossom between a student and coach is highly frowned upon, I did enjoy the relationship she created between Emily and Sergei. I’d highly recommend this story to other readers and I look forward to seeing what Ms. Comeaux’s next book might be about. Well done on your debut novel!
Nineteen-year-old Emily is new to pairs skating, but she and her partner Chris have a big dream–to be the first American team to win Olympic gold. Their young coach Sergei, who left Russia after a mysterious end to his skating career, believes they can break through and make history.
Emily and Chris are on track to be top contenders at the 2002 Winter Games. But when forbidden feelings spark between Emily and Sergei, broken trust and an unexpected enemy threaten to derail Emily’s dreams of gold.
