Five Ladies Go Skiing by Karen Aldous

This was a cherry pop for me as I haven’t read anything by Karen Aldous. In the early part of this book you get to know the five friends, you are given an insight into their current relationships and tensions as well as introducing the reasoning behind why they are all meeting up for this momentous post Christmas break.

During this story I laughed and I cried, it oozes friendship and understanding and makes you consider how you would feel in the shoes of all of these lovely women. I found this a really touching story and could feel the emotional highs and lows of these ladies as the story unfolded and found myself wanting to keep turning the pages to see how it would all end for the five ladies.

Book Blurb

Five ladies, one unforgettable trip…

Escape to gorgeous Switzerland this winter with the brand new, uplifting read from Karen Aldous.

When Ginny Watts’ husband passes away, she is left grief-stricken, not only over her husband’s death but the secrets he has left behind…

Luckily for Ginny, she has four wonderful friends – Lou, Cathy, Angie and Kim – poised to whisk her away on a ladies’ skiing holiday to beautiful La Tzoumaz, Switzerland.

While all of them appear to have their lives together from the outside, little do the ladies know that every single one of them is fighting a secret battle.

As the trip unfolds, they realise that fears of tumbling down the slopes after too much après-ski fun is the least of their worries and all is not what it seems…

About the Author

Karen Aldous enjoys village life on the edge of the north-downs in Kent with easy access to the buzz of London. Not only does she love the passive pleasures of reading and writing but craves the more active pursuits, walking, cycling and skiing especially when they involve family, friends, food, and…wine!

Much of Karen’s inspiration comes from her travels. The UK, France, Switzerland and USA are just some you’ll be transported to in her books, but wherever she goes, new characters invite themselves into ‘Karen’s World’ screaming at her to tell their stories; strong independent women who are capable of directing their own lives – but struggle to control them…especially when temptation strikes!

As a member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association and The Write Place, Karen feels she owes so much of her success to the love and support of her fellow writers
