Alpine Attraction - Ann Gimpel This is the first Ann Gimpel book I’ve read and I will be reading more. It’s obvious that Ann knows what she’s writing about and it feels as if she loves climbing as much as her characters. I love to be surprised by a well written story with great editing, but this one was even better because it’s different than anything I’ve read for a while. I won’t tell you what the difference is because that would spoil it way too much. This is about two people finding their way back to each other and the love they never lost. Tina and Craig were much more than climbing partners, they were true partners in everything. Tina pushed Craig away to protect him from a mistake she made while climbing that snowballed into so much more. After Tina turned him down Craig closed his heart to everyone else and it didn’t crack open again until Tina went on what she thought would be her last climb, last anything, with him as the doctor on the trip. Craig was there for Tina when she finally told him what was going on and was prepared to do anything to ensure a future for her and hopefully them together. I recommend this to anyone looking for a unique, quick read or a second chance at love story. This has mystery, action, love and a hot scene in a cold tent. There’s a lot packed into this quick read. I got to know Tina and Craig remarkably well in such a short time and the secondary characters are also very well developed. (I was given a copy from the author for a tour and honest review.)Darker Passions
