Description:

They’re ready to hit the slopes when things go downhill...
  
Sean and Sara are supposed to have a relaxing vacation in Vail, but it all goes up in a puff of powder when there’s a suspicious death on the mountain. And the deceased is not just anyone; it’s Adrian Blackwell, a two-time Olympic skiing gold medalist.
  
Rumor has it Adrian died in a skiing accident, but he was too skilled for Sara to accept that as fact. But she doesn’t want to disappoint Sean by ruining his ski trip, even though she’s convinced Adrian was murdered and she’s itching to find the killer.
  
Sean has never been able to say no to Sara, but this time he plans to. However, all it takes is a call from their PI firm back in Albany to change his mind. A job’s come in to investigate Adrian’s death, and his agent is the one footing the bill, leaving Sean with more questions than answers.
  
Yet one major problem remains: their New York State PI licenses hold no legal authority in Colorado. They still can’t help but look into Adrian’s death on the sly, though. This case will definitely involve some underhanded tactics, all while trying to dodge the local police over the course of the investigation.

My Thoughts:

Sara and Sean are enjoying a peaceful vacation in Vail Colorado when they over hear someone has died what is even more baffling is that the death is of Adrian Blackwell a two-time Olympic gold medalist in skiing.  What happened to Adrian and what if it was a bizarre death?  Sean is hesitant to investigate the death until he hears from Helen at their P.I company that Sara and Sean have been hired to find out what happened to Adrian!

This book has so much intrigue that really has you wondering what the heck is going on at the ski resort in Vail.  Was it an angry girl he had jilted?   Or was it a sponsor who was sick of dealing with an Olympic brat?  It really made you want to dive in with Sara and Sean to get to the answer!  Can't wait to see what they deal with next time!
