Chamberlain Ski Resort and Spa
Welcome to the 10th Annual Snow Queen competition
I can't believe I got roped into this.
Snow Princesses must attend all pageant rehearsals, with appropriate outfits.
Well, no matter what it takes, I'm going to wipe that smirk off Layla Chamberlain's face.
Our rehearsal space can be booked to practice your talent.
Um, does "looking dumb in a dress" count as a talent?
See Grayson Chamberlain, the assistant director, with any questions.
If you insist First question: How can someone so sweet (and hot ) be a Chamberlain?
Good luck One of you will soon be our new Snow Queen
Unless Grayson comes with the tiara . . .
My Thoughts:First of all, I chose this book because I had read it once before, therefore I knew it would be a short and sweet read that I wouldn't have any trouble posting a review about.
This book starts off with Aubrey coming going up to Vermont with her friend Christie and Christie's cousin Charlie. Aubrey is summarily obsessed with seeing snow for the first time because she is from Florida, where they do not normally have snow so she hasn't once seen it before.
Before long, Aubrey finds out that Christie has signed herself along with Aubrey up to participate in the Snow Queen competition, which is basically like Miss Teen America, except with only people around the Chamberlain Ski Resort and Spa, owned by who Aubrey soon finds out are their 'enemies'.
Even though this didn't happen during the school year, I found this seeming like one of those light-on-the-drama books that have a small conflict, with the queen rhymes-with-witch (that came from the book) and her hot older brother that the protagonist has a crush on.
Like all short and sweet stories, it ended how you would expect it to end (but I won't completely reveal that).
So, I did like this book, as a light read type thing that wasn't one of those killer, hangover/cliffhanger books that you eat away at.
I gave it four point five hearts.
