At her wit’s end with her twelve-year-old niece, Wren Snow takes the manager’s job at Blue Spruce Lodge so Sky can get to know her father, Trigg Johanssen—a tycoon snowboarder with a playboy reputation.
Gold-medalist Trigg Johanssen is furious she kept Sky a secret, but quits competition to focus on his newly discovered daughter only to have his chemistry with Wren complicate their attempts to co-parent.
When outside forces threaten the ski resort he’s rebuilding, a marriage of convenience seems like the answer. It would give his daughter the life she deserves, but is it too much for a heartbroken woman still nursing past hurts?
Title: In Too Deep
Series: The Blue Spruce Lodge #3
Author: Dani Collins
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Published: August 7, 2018
Publisher: Tule Publishing
My Rating: 4.5 stars
It was an emotional, entertaining return to the Blue Spruce Lodge once again for Trigg, Wren and Sky’s story. It’s not easy to learn that you’re an instant father to a 12 year old sarcastic, rebellious daughter with major attitude problems… but along with the surprise is intense anger that Wren’s sister had kept Sky from him for more than a decade, and maybe some of that anger is directed toward Wren as well. Yet Trigg will learn that there are always two sides to every story, and that what was done was in the sisters’ minds protection for an innocent baby. And as you learn of Wren’s past, you’ll also understand that decision a lot better.
In Too Deep is a journey not only to love and that happy ever after but to a family being born out of ashes from the past. We run into characters we’ve met before, get a conclusion to the various bits of damage done around the lodge, see a business become everything the family had hoped it would be and watch as three people work through some very difficult issues and emotions to become a unique family. There is a lot more I’d love to say about this stunning story, but spoilers are no fun for those who have yet to read the book – so I can’t. I can say that I devoured this third story in the series and loved every moment spent in this world once again. I’ve been enchanted, entertained and emotional throughout the Blue Spruce Lodge series, and I suspect that this is the final one (but I never day done because.. plans change)… and if it is indeed the last story then I’ve had a fantastic run with these characters who feel as lifelike as my next door neighbors. I’d definitely recommend the entire series to any Contemporary Romance reader. You’ll get lost in rich, detailed, engaging lives and have a blast.
