Grace Douglas is on a practice run for her friend Cara Donovan’s bachelorette party ski weekend in Aspen. The problem is, despite living in rugged and picturesque Cunningham Falls, Montana, Grace is the clumsiest person ever born. To prepare for the trip, she is taking lessons at a local ski resort. She just prays that they have an ambulance on standby.

Sexy hotelier Jacob Berkley is ready to play ski instructor, but he quickly discovers that the best place on the mountain for Grace is in the lodge with a hot toddy. Her sense of humor and easy laugh quickly pull him in, and soon he’s determined to help her get off the bunny slope for a fun vacation with her friends. He just didn’t expect their steamy chemistry to trigger an avalanche of desire straight to his heart.

Saving Grace is a novella that is part of Kristen Proby’s Love Under the Big Sky series. It takes place between the second and third novels. This can be fully read as a standalone. If you’re like me however, you’ll be going back to read the rest of the series just due to this short, sweet story. The story is told from an alternative third person point of view between the two main characters, Grace and Jacob. It does have an HEA, and no, there is no cliffhanger!

For me, anything with Kristen Proby’s name on it, is something I will pick up and read. This series is one that is on my Kindle, and has just been waiting for me. When I got the ARC for Saving Grace, I didn’t realize it was part of this series! So I read it, unknowingly being drawn into the whole shebang.

The story of Grace and Jacob is one that is just plain sweet. Being that it is a novella, you’ll have to realize that it is fast paced. Some may call it insta-love. Regardless of the pace, I loved the plot for this. Grace, is anything but graceful, and Jacob is just looking for a woman to love him for him, and not what he has in his bank. The connection overall between the characters, even the initial ones that is extremely well done. There is a definite amount of chemistry here and it translates off the pages.

I’m more than happy to slap a five star rating on this book. For me, it was a perfect novella to tuck myself away for a few hours with. I’ll definitely be reading the rest of the series now!
