Chocolatier, Lucy Simkins, has been unceremoniously dumped by her dithering boyfriend, Phil. She needs to blast him out of her system. She needs to feel alive. She decides to go skydiving.
Joshua Snow is one of the most experienced tandem instructors at the dropzone, with a smile that can charm the birds from the trees. Confident, charismatic, even a little cocky, he soon finds himself on the back foot. He finds his shy little tandem student somewhat disarming.
There’s an instant attraction between Joshua and Lucy, an attraction that hasn’t gone unnoticed by his peers. A distracted student is one thing – they’re all used to that. But a distracted instructor? That’s a whole different story.
Parachutes and Peppermints is the first part in the Sadie Mills Freefall Trilogy, a fast-paced series of novellas, each set within the space of a single day. In this romantic comedy Sadie Mills grabs the unsuspecting reader by the handholds, drags them to the door, and pulls them out of the plane with her, giving a glimpse of a world full of adrenaline (not to mention insanely hot men) rarely explored in literature.
Continuing from Parachutes and Peppermints (Part 1 of the Sadie Mills Freefall Trilogy), we pick up the romance between chocolatier, Lucy Simkins, and skydiving instructor, Joshua Snow.
One month on from her tandem jump with Josh, Lucy is back at the dropzone. She wants to become a fully fledged skydiver and learn to fly on her own. She’s been placed in the more than capable (if somewhat indiscreet) hands of Joshua’s fellow skydiving instructor, Froggy, AKA Jeremy Fisher.
Froggy is a wee, wiry Scotsman who does hopping mad like nobody else, but he has a big heart and he’s got Lucy’s back. Student and instructor build up a bond. Froggy makes a startling revelation regarding Joshua’s past that rocks their relationship to its foundations.
Lucy discovers that in skydiving, life can turn on a dime, and the world can drop away from your feet at any second. A twist of fate leaves not just her relationship with Josh, but Lucy’s life hanging in the balance.
