Always the Chalet Girl…
Year round chalet girl Tash doesn’t do attachments—she’s learned the hard way that relationships of any kind never last. But when self-made millionaire and hit TV star Nathaniel Campbell arrives to spend a month at Chalet Repos, she’s tempted to reconsider her no-strings rule…

Tash and Nate may be from different sides of the tracks, but the connection between them is undeniable! And Tash soon realises that one hot night with Nate will never be enough. But can Nate ever think of Tash as more than a fling, especially once the truth about her past comes out?

The Chalet Girls are back! Set in the exclusive Swiss ski resort of Verbier, winter playground of the rich and famous, Rebellion of a Chalet Girl is the latest addition to the fabulous Chalet Girl series.

Rebellion of a Chalet Girl will break your heart and then put it back together. Lorraine Wilson’s newest Chalet Girl story is a powerful, emotional story with a heroine who will grab your heart, a hero who will make you swoon, and a Swiss ski resort you’ll wish you could visit.

I absolutely loved Tash. She’s survived so much and has come out stronger, yet is also deeply vulnerable. Now that she’s finally found solid ground, so to speak, everything is changing on her again. Her best friends are moving on with their lives and Tash desperately wants to understand where she fits in the new landscape of her life and work. Because of all she’s been through and her fear of being hurt yet again, Tash holds most people at a distance. Nate, however, gets under her skin from the moment they meet. The attraction between them is electric, but Tash fears she’s not good enough for the flashy millionaire. She couldn’t be more wrong. I love that Nate saw the real Tash beneath the attitude and that he treasures her for who she is. It isn’t easy for them to make a go of it, but Ms. Wilson makes every obstacle they have to overcome worth it in the end. The only thing I would wish for Nate and Tash is that their story had been a bit longer. Rebellion of a Chalet Girl addresses serious issues, so the story might have felt a bit more organic had Tash’s personal journey and the role Nate plays in it been spread out. Also, I would have like to delve a bit deeper into Nate’s character, as he had great potential. Both these factors could have made this story go from outstanding to amazing.

Rebellion of a Chalet Girl is the sixth book in Ms. Wilson’s Chalet Girl series, but as I had not yet read Confessions of a Chalet Girl, Secrets of a Chalet Girl, Revenge of a Chalet Girl, Secret Crush of a Chalet Girl, or Chalet Girl Plays Cupid at the time of reading Tash’s story, I can safely say it can be read as a standalone. Many of Tash’s fellow chalet girls play supporting roles and I’m definitely looking forward to reading the rest of the series. I can’t say enough how much I loved Tash and I’m looking forward to reading her story over and over and over again!
