This book had me crying at the end. I do have to say in the beginning I was not fond of Destiny and her attitude. She seemed a little juvenile to me. However as her story progressed and you learned that some of the things she did was just how she coped to having famous parents and the whirlwind that goes with that you start to really enjoy her. She moves all around for her job this time she landed in Fools Gold. A little kink in her plan she has her step sister Starr with her, whom she doesn't know. They just met at the airport.. talk about slightly awkward beginning for them. Their dad has a lot of children most don't know each other. I can't even imagine. Destiny and Kipling are to work with the STORMS program together.
Kipling is an ex Olympic skier. He used to test the limits so hard they called him G-force. That all literally went downhill after he had a horrible accident. He's laying in the hospital and when the mayor of Fool's Gold comes to see him.She knows his sister is in trouble and she is going to get her out of it. She also would like him to come work for her in Fools Gold. He see's an opportunity and takes it. Kipling is a fixer he likes to fix everyone's problems, whether they want him to or not. He is always trying to make up for not doing what needed done in the past. He see's Destiny as his next project. However she doesn't want to be fixed. Of course that's where things get interesting.
This contemporary romance novel really pulled at my heart strings. Susan Mallery has always been a go to author for me and will continue to be a go to author.

Destiny is a strong, independent woman who has been bought up (sort of) by popular country music stars who care little for her. She works in mapping for mountain rescue teams (the Americans obviously not having ordnance survey maps) and has come to town with her newly acquired half-sister for whom she has taken responsibility because no one else in her family will do it. She is the type of woman who doesn't like to put down roots and is always trying to escape from her upbringing and she does this by denying the parts of her that fulfil her but remind her of her past.
Kipling (really - that is a name ??? Sadly, I kept thinking of cake every time I saw it) is an ex-ski champion who has had an accident that has cut short his career but which doesn't actually disable him in every day life. The author is very good at conveying his regret that he will not ski competitively again and fortunately there is no miracle cure in this book - his future is with the mountain rescue and a bar he has established in town. He is always trying to make things better - to fix them - and he has to realise that a relationship with Destiny is about a partnership of equals.
The story is engaging enough, the book is easy to read and it all ends up very nicely. There are some good scenes (the Karaoke is great) and some less successful themes (the Man Cave saga) but on the whole this is an engaging and entertaining addition to the series.
