It’s cold beyond description in many parts of the country. So cold, a friend from Minnesota said: “a person couldn’t walk a block if they had car problems.”
So, what does one do during such unproductive days? How about reading? And what is your comfort reading?
Yes, I do have a suggestion. How would you like to travel to the German mountains for an alpine adventure with a group of characters each more interesting than the next.
The book is “Snow White’s Slide,” and the writer is a friend who “studied literature and linguistics in Germany and the United States. She strives to combine her two passions: writing and traveling…”
Here is my review:
If you’re looking for an exciting story filled with alpine adventures in the gorgeous mountains of Germany, a world inhabited by risk takers, this is the book for you.
Karo, a take-charge business woman, receives a gift in the form of a vacation in the German Alps. And Karo is not one to back away from a challenge. Martin, the leader of the hiking group, is a man with no sympathy for the sophisticated city folks. A man who takes control. But with Karo in the group, that becomes a problem.
The book contains all the energy and unexpected turns that have made Edith Parzefall’s books appealing. And I read quite a few of her stories. As usual, the author found a way to lock me in. What can I say? This is one of those speed-read books, as the plot drives forward with a furious intensity.
An absorbing read I’d recommend to suspense and adventure enthusiasts.
