Maggie can’t wait for her first ever skiing holiday. New Year’s Eve in the French Alps with her boyfriend Leo and two other couples: what could be more romantic? She’s picturing hot chocolate, romantic snowball fights and evenings snuggled together in front of the log fire. What she didn’t picture is near-death experiences on the mountains, falling out with Leo and sharing a chalet with the unbearable Jenny.
When she meets Sylvain, a gorgeous ski instructor, the line between harmless flirting and full-on misbehaviour becomes … well, blurry. Will Maggie stay on the nursery slopes, or go seriously off-piste?
