Review - What Happens in the Alps by T.A. Williams

SUMMARY
UP IN THE MAGICAL, SNOW-KISSED MOUNTAINS…
Two years ago, Annie Brewer’s life was turned upside down when her adrenaline-junkie husband died in a tragic climbing accident. So she’s hoping that moving to the beautiful village of Santorso in the Italian Alps will finally put her life back on track!
…ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN!
She might be going into business with her oldest friend – notorious lady-charmer Matt Brown – but men are definitely out of the question for Annie! That is, until she bumps into tall, dark and delicious Alessandro Lago on the ski slopes…and spontaneously says ‘Yes’ to a date!
It must be the crisp, mountain air but suddenly, anything seems possible. The only trouble is, chivalrous Matt is looking more gorgeous than ever…
MY REVIEW
T.A. does not disappoint with this next installment of his What Happens series!  I seem to enjoy each book a little more than the last each time I read a new one.  
Annie is such an amazing your woman, she has made it through so much yet she is determined to make the most of the situation and live her life to the fullest.  Nothing is going to get her down.  She lost her husband Steve to a freak climbing accident a few years back.  She is trying to get her life back and make a name for herself and start a business so as to take care of herself.  
Annie is starting a school in Santorso - a village in the Italian Alps - teaching English to locals.  This is her way to start over and be happy in the new life that was handed to her.
As luck would have it, who does she run into?  Matt, her late husbands best friend.  They were climbing buddies that went way back.  Matt was always like a brother to her and would o anything for her.  He moved to Florence some time back and this is the first she has seen him in a bit.  Do sparks fly when they catch up?  Why does he decide to move back to Turin after being gone for so long?  
As the days are going by Annie meets, a gorgeous Italian man, Alex and she cant help but fall for those baby blue eyes.  Sparks fly, is Annie ready to fall in love again?  Could this Italian ladies man be the one to sweep her off her feet?
Twists and turns through the Italian Alps will have you wandering what will happen one page to the next.  There is some intrigue  and love and maybe even a little lust to pull you in.
WINE SELECTION
I will be pairing What Happens in the Alps with a fine deep red wine - Brunello di Montalcino!
MY RATING
I am giving this romance in the Italian Alps 5 glasses of wine - I enjoyed each and every page and I couldn't wait to see what was around the next slope turn!
