Publisher's Description

If women were meant to fly, the skies would be pink. Those were the first words Anjelica Joergensen heard from renowned wingsuiter, Kyle Sheppard, when they joined an international team in Oslo to break the formation flying Guinness World Record. This wouldnt be the last blunder Kyle would make around the beautiful Norwegian. The more Anjelica tries to avoid Kyle, the more the universe pushes them together. Despite their awkward start, she finds herself reluctantly attracted to the handsome New Zealander. But beneath his saintly exterior, is Kyle just a daredevil looking for the next big thrill? Falling for another wingsuiter would only be another love doomed. When a childhood sweetheart comes between them, Kyle makes a foolish agreement which jeopardizes the event and endangers his life, forcing Angelica to make a hard choice. Is she the one wholl clip his wings? Can he be the wind beneath hers?

    Anjelica JoergensenAngelis one of the few females in the male-dominated world of professional wingsuit flyers. Not only is it a dangerous occupation, its one which attracts daredevils with too little thought for safety. Shes lost her heart to a fellow wingsuiter once before, and isnt going to make the same mistake twice.

    Kyle Sheppard has travelled all the way from New Zealand to Norway with his wingsuit team to participate in a record-setting jump as part of Norways National Day celebrations. He immediately gets off on the wrong foot with the pretty wingsuiter, which is unfortunate as he is attracted to her. But hes not interested in anyone who doesnt share his Christian faith, and she doesnt seem to be interested in him, either

    Its great to see a Kiwi character in a Christian novel, especially one who is recognisably Kiwi without being clich. Some might see the team performing the haka as clich, but whos going to argue with men performing a war dance, especially when the translationit is death, it is lifeis so apt for those participating in such a dangerous sport. For those of you who have never seen a haka performed, get thee to an All Black test or visit YouTube.

    Its also great to see fictional women in unusual surroundings and occupations, and to see two characters for whom the Christian faith is a lifestyle, not something to be mentioned once or twice to qualify them for the Christian bookstore (sorry, but Im getting a little tired of Christian novels which arent. If they arent, thats fine. Just dont publish them as Christian novels. Sorry. Rant over).

    The main characters were likeable, and I wanted them to get together right from the start. There were also some good minor characters, especially Eric and Luke, and Id like to see more of them (hint, hint). The writing is strong, and the novella was an enjoyable if brief break from daily life.

    There are a couple of characters in Olso Overtures who were in Marian Ueckermanns previous novella, Helsinki Sunrise, but the two novellas are standalone stories (I havent read Helsinki Sunrise, but am tempted to add it to my ever-growing to-read pile. Im told self-control is a virtue. When it comes to books, its not a virtue I possess).

    Im always a sucker for a good romance, especially one with an out-of-the-ordinary setting, and Oslo Overtures ticks all the boxes for what I think a Christian romance should be. Recommended for those who like extreme sports and exotic locations (whether participating and visiting in real life or vicariously through fiction!).

    Thanks to the author for providing a free ebook for review.
