Medals can be won, careers can be made, hearts can be lost.

From the pomp of Opening Ceremonies to the good-byes of Closing Ceremonies, join three remarkable women during the Winter Olympics. Tessa Rutledge, once an Olympic champion figure skater, returns as a coach, encountering her first love -- and heartbreak -- and testing her ability to forgive. Alpine skier Kyle Armstrong has made a mistake that could cost her Olympic gold and any hope of reconciling with the man she loves. Biathlete Rikki Lodge is just happy to be at the Games, until she meets a hockey player who demands that she puts everything on the line.

Let The Games begin!

I was holding on to my copy of Patricia McLinn's book THE GAMES to read next week while the Olympics are on. However, I glanced at the first page and couldn't stop. This is an exciting story about three athletes and their friends/loves. By the end, I was so hooked I hoped every one of them would win a gold medal. I also learned a lot about the Olympics, the events and scoring. Fascinating stuff. You'll love this book anytime you read it.
