They’re ready to hit the slopes when things go downhill…
Sean and Sara were supposed to have a relaxing vacation in Vail, but it all goes up in a puff of powder when there’s a suspicious death on the mountain. And the deceased is not just anyone; it’s Adrian Blackwell, a two-time Olympic skiing gold medalist.
Rumor has it that Adrian died in a skiing accident, but he was too skilled for Sara to accept it as fact. Though she’s convinced Adrian was murdered and she’s itching to find the killer, she doesn’t want to disappoint Sean by ruining his ski trip.
Sean has never had the ability to say no to Sara before, but this time he comes close. It takes a call from their PI firm back in Albany to change his mind. A job’s come in to investigate Adrian’s death, and his agent is the one footing the bill, leaving Sean with more questions than answers.
Yet one major problem remains: their New York State PI licenses hold no legal authority in Colorado. But they still can’t help but look into Adrian’s death on the sly. This case will definitely involve some underhanded tactics, all while trying to dodge the local police during the course of the investigation.

Like Sara McKinley, I would prefer to sit by the fire or take advantage of the resort's spa services.
Sean was looking forward to days of slope time on their vacation. But this duo seems not to be able to avoid murder.
The victim, an Olympic gold medalist, seemed to enjoy social aspects of his celebrity almost as much as skiing. What surprises the billionaire investigative duo most is how accepting his social partners are of his philandering. Jealousy would be a clear motive in most cases.

The expert investigators do seem to bumble and tumble some on this case.
Should they have remained on vacation and enjoyed personal time away?
They are really still in the honeymoon phase of their marriage.

I liked that we only knew what the McKinley's knew as they discovered information.
I enjoyed putting the puzzle together along side them.
I did receive an advance copy of the book to review.
