Review

In On the Edge by T.S. Krupa, Andy Parker has one mission in life: take care of her fifteen-year-old daughter and help her achieve the best in the world.   T.S. Krupa did a fantastic job with On The Edge. She portrayed Andy's dilemma perfectly. She was sympathetic and encouraging. Plus, it was not instant love and that alone makes this novel worthy of five stars! - Readers' Favorite

Format: Paperback
On The Edge is a really fresh, entertaining novel about a widowed mother and her daughter faced with a genuinely life-changing opportunity. From the first chapter, it’s easy to tell that Andy Parker is very over-protective of her daughter Hayden Grace – checking her messages, not allowing her to have her phone in her room at night or to stay at home on her own. Soon we see that Andy’s heart is in the right place, she’s actually just following the wishes of her husband Stefan who passed away six years ago. There’s a lovely bond between Andy and Hayden Grace and though things aren’t easy without Stefan, they are both getting on with their lives. Andy is dating a little – though not very successfully - and Hayden Grace is busy training and practising her snowboarding but when life introduces them both to professional snowboarder Paul Westcott, they see that maybe letting go and living a little could lead them to a much happier future and maybe a little romance along the way.

To me this story could have been written in two different ways – from the perspective of Andy (like it was) or it could have been told as Hayden Grace’s story, which is credit to how well the author developed her character. Andy’s daughter had a lot about her. She was very talented and passionate about snowboarding but she was very realistic for her young age too since it was acknowledged there was room for improvement in her ability and more importantly, she needed that bit of confidence to really push herself to compete to the best of her ability. Hayden Grace misses her dad and wants to know that he would be proud of her snowboarding performance but sometimes she struggles because he’s no longer around to tell her that.

On The Edge is a beautifully written and completely absorbing story that readers will find difficult to put down.

Andrea (Andy) Parker's husband, Stefan, was killed in action six years ago and raising their daughter on her own has been anything but easy. Hayden Grace is now fifteen and an avid snowboarder, who is hoping to win her first national competition, but since the death of her father something seems to be holding her back. An encouraging letter, written before Stefan's death, and some of his military patches hidden inside her jacket seem to give her the confidence she needs to pull off a qualifying run. This big win opens a whole new world to the Parker ladies, changing life as they know it forever.

Andy, who's absolutely NOT looking for a relationship after her last dating fiasco and is more focused on helping Hayden Grace further her snowboarding career, is swept away by a chance meeting with a handsome snowboarder, who just happens to be world famous. She could get lost in his amazing blue eyes and the way he makes her feel is something she hasn't experienced since Stefan. But, what will Hayden Grace think of her mom's budding relationship? Is Paul too good to be true?

On The Edge is a wonderful story with intriguing characters that one can't help becoming attached to. The love that Andy and Hayden Grace carry for Stefan is powerful and his presence among the stars gets them through many tough times. When Paul enters their lives, he brings a certain feeling of comfort and familiarity that both Andy and Hayden Grace are drawn to. Andy and Paul's romance made me smile and warmed my heart. Paul's ability to include Hayden Grace made me like him even more. On The Edge is a well-crafted solid read that I hoped wouldn't end.

I highly recommend picking up a copy.

T.S. Krupa once again delivers a gripping novel that I couldn't stop reading. Once I started the book I just didn't want to stop, I finished it in just a couple hours. The book itself is engrossing and even though it has something I know little about (snowboarding) as a main part of the story everything is explained just enough that you can enjoy the sport without being bogged down with information.

I couldn't help but adore Hayden Grace and Andy...they had such a cute relationship throughout the book. Of course they had their mother daughter spats but overall they had a pretty inspiring relationship.

The romance in the book is pretty perfect- the relationship between Paul and Andy starts out as part of her job and quickly evolves into a friendship that is entertaining to watch. Their romance blossoms through chance meetings at snowboarding events that her daughter is apart of, and he often judges. You can't help but love Paul when he's with Andy, he's fun, thoughtful and quite the charmer.

T.S. Krupa has a way with words once again in On The Edge; every sentence flows so perfectly into the next that you can't stop yourself from reading the next line, and then the next line.

Beautiful!

(reposted from Goodreads): To preface my review, I do not give 5 stars lightly - Harry Potter, Some Jodi Picoult books, and others. When I enjoy a book, it's a 4 star in general. This book EARNED 5 stars from me due to its engaging nature, deliberate characters, and good story line. I haven't been able to read a book in less than a month since having a child over 4 years ago. I read this in 2 days, finding as many chances as possible to keep it going. I laughed a lot and teared up a little. I love that the teen in this book is not the spoiled, sarcastic teen with typical teenage angst. I love that her mom, Andy, takes a thoughtful parenting approach despite her stressors in life. More importantly, I love the decisions they were making. My only complaint about the characters is, I wish Andy, the mom, would have said what she was thinking so many times. But thus, she held her breath, and said what needed to be thoughtfully said; I just wish she had caused a few jaws to drop with her real thoughts :). I was upset that the book ended (at page 318) as I wanted to see how certain aspects played out (not wanting to give out spoilers here).
Kudos are in order for this author as well... notice at the front of the book - there is NO PUBLISHER listed. This appears to be a grassroots operation for this author to publish her own book. That takes a lot of gumption and courage, in my opinion.
Overall, great read. A great 2nd book by a 1st time author who has many more stories to tell I'm sure.
