In a great first book of the planned Ice Series Trilogy by author Jennifer Comeaux, Crossing the Ice will appeal to many young adult readers who love a sweet romance. Follow the story of pair skaters Courtney and Mark as they are working to their goal, a shot at making the Olympic team. They promise not to let anything get in their way. Another pair couple, Stephanie and Josh, a sibling duo, is their primary competition. But when Courtney finds herself more and more drawn to the sweet and shy Josh, will their dreams be forever changed? You'll need to read this fantastic book to find out!
I very much enjoyed Crossing the Ice. Author Jennifer Comeaux has done a wonderful job at creating characters that her readers will connect with, relate to, and continue to think about long after the book is finished. If that isn't a sign of a great author, I'm not sure what is. The story line is sweet with the promise of young romance without going too far, so both young readers and their parents will approve of this story. Any young reader, and perhaps especially young women who enjoy a romantic read, will certainly enjoy Crossing the Ice. I highly recommend this book. I was happy to find that this is the first book in a trilogy, and I can't wait to read more from the Ice Series as soon as I am able to do so. If the subsequent stories are anything like Crossing the Ice, they will certainly be worth the read!
