If I hear of a contest I’m eligible for I enter it, especially if the prize consists of books so when I heard of Imajin Book’s contest celebrating their Canadian success and authors I had to enter.
A few days later I found out that I won the ebook by Kristina Stanley, Decent (A Stone Mountain Mystery Book 1) and I was thrilled! Only it got buried in another pile of downloads, projects and my own writing and then I was reminded again and went searching for it.
With a much more pleasant winter than last, I was delighted to read of a fictitious, but very likely, blustery mountain and ski resort.
Littered with enticing openings into a whole new level of many of their lives, I was delighted to discover this novel was only the first of its series. There are still many characters I want to know more about so will be picking up Blaze (A Stone Mountain Mystery Book 2) in the very near future!
With an opening of a bit of romance, this novel was a whirlwind of enticing looks into lives so complex I had a hard time putting it down. Stanley had a way of enveloping me in the beauty that is a ski resort amid many thickening plots of characters and their family.
Kalin, the main character, was easy to relate to with her honesty about accepting a new position without feeling overly confident as well as her practical approach to attire versus attractiveness. While she felt she had a lot of competition and wasn’t sure who she could trust, Kalin did her job to the best of her ability and stayed true to herself.
Some of you may think it’s not worth the bother a contest but I can tell you from experience, it always makes sense to try. Not only are some of the prizes completely awesome, like this one, but the potential long-lasting connections are even better!
So go out there and enter some and tell me what you win!
Thanks for reading,
