A romantic ski resort seems the perfect place for a wedding. Until a murder on the slopes turns everyone on Eagle Summit into suspects. Liz Carmichael, the bride's cousin, saw a shadowy figure on a chairlift in the middle of the night. But was it the victim or the killer? Liz goes to the police—and finds herself giving the report to her ex-fiancĂ©, Deputy Tim Richards. After a three-year estrangement, she could finally make things right—unless the killer finds her first.

Fantastic. With every book Virginia Smith writes, she gets better and better. I read this book in two sittings so be advised... don't start it if you aren't prepared to keep on reading!

The author writes so vividly I could really see the setting! The action was intense. Between the skiing, the break-in at Liz's apartment and the trip from Kentucky to Eagle Summit for her cousin's wedding, THEN the attacks upon her kept me hanging on the edge of my seat.

The mystery in this story traces its roots all the way back to British rule and a great-great-great-great-grandmother. The reason for the tradition at the wedding was never fully understood but just passed on from one generation to another.

I really loved how Liz and Tim were looking for the mate God had for them and that sometimes events can cause one to have cold feet. Yet love will eventually win out.

This author threw in an amazing number of twists and events in this story and it held my attention from beginning to end.
