First Chapter First Paragraph

Today I’m participating in First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea, in which bloggers share a bit about a book they’re reading or planning to read soon.

The mountains had grown bigger and bigger the closer Zara got to Bear Bluff. Of course they had: she didn’t need to be a teacher to know how simple things like perspective worked. But she’d never seen mountains this big, not in real life. While other students may have gone on vacations, she’d studied throughout school and college. She’d worked hard, and saved hard. Although she had still ended up in significant debt by the time she had completed her teacher training, it was all worth it.

She loved teaching; it was as if she’d been born for the job – all she needed was a job.

Would you keep reading?  


Curvy girl Zara is used to working over the Holidays. The pay is good, and it fills the lonely hours, when everyone else is celebrating with their family. This year is different. As a newly qualified teacher, she’s given herself a Christmas vacation.

So, when she is invited by her old friend Dylan and his family, to spend the holidays in Bear Bluff, she agrees. There she finds something much better than a gift under the Christmas Tree!

Theo can’t believe his luck. He arrives to help Dylan mend his grandpa’s roof, and instead meets his mate! All his Christmases have come at once.

There is only one thing that is stopping him having his best Christmas ever—Dominic.

Dominic is a young offender who is shadowing Theo as part of the project Dylan has set up to help young people who need a fresh start. The problem is, Theo has a feeling Dominic is about to skip town, and break his probation.

Can he and Zara work together, to make sure everyone in Bear Bluff has the best Christmas ever?

And will Zara’s dreams all come true, when she makes a wish upon a bear?

    • No, it’s supposed to be “bear.” That is the part of the storyline I found confusing. Since this was the sixth in the series, that part was glossed over entirely.
