After winning Olympic silver, teen snowboarder Jake Taylor is struggling with sudden fame when he’s offered a gig he can’t refuse: becoming a spokesperson for a state-of-the-art athletic training facility. Training for its first competition, Jake relies on his faith to help him find ways to use his fame to help others . . . when athletes mysteriously start getting sabotaged one by one. Time is running out for Jake and his girlfriend, Sophie, to figure out what is going on before he is also sabotaged . . . or worse.

I throw myself into his arms, squashing a gold foil box between us.

“I missed you, Bloomers,” he whispers in my ear.

The nickname always makes me smile. I still don’t think I’m at all like the tough Old-West ladies who found it easier to just wear their bloomers instead of their long skirts, but I do love the term of endearment.

Our reunion is as sweet as any of those holiday romantic cable movies my mom loves . . . until my dog, Everest, appears out of nowhere and starts whining and rubbing against our legs. I ignore her and focus instead on how happy I am to be in his strong arms.
