On her way to the Snow Kirk Inn to meet her part-time ski patrol lover, Daphne Appletree becomes hopelessly lost during an early snowstorm in the Sierra Nevada mountains.
Taking a wrong turn and crashing over a cliff, she's severely injured and trapped in her Ford Explorer during blizzard conditions--until an off-duty firefighter, Garrett Foss, follows clues to find her with an old military Weasel.
Mick Atwood and Daphne Appletree have a seasonal relationship. Mick is on Ski Patrol at a local resort and expects to meet Daphne at Snow Kirk Inn. He is disappointed to be stood up. Or was he? He sets out in search of Daphne.
Five years later, Daphne speaks at a medical conference in Truckee, where she meets Garrett Foss for the first time. While she's at the podium, Mick Atwood steps into the conference room, and Daphne is tongue-tied and confused and turns to her two best friends for help.
Part mystery, part romance, and an emotional rollercoaster of a story, enjoy the twists and turns of contemporary relationships during the wintertime ski season in the California Sierra Nevada Mountain ski resort setting.
