Goodreads Synopsis:

The frosty chill that’s settled over Georgetown Academy isn’t just from the winter weather—growing up in the D.C. fishbowl isn’t for everyone, but a break from the Beltway might just restore some sanity.
Ellie Walker’s suffered through a lifetime of scandal in a few short weeks, and now must watch her true love fall for someone else. But will a dose of fresh New England air—and an irresistible newcomer who plays by his own rules—provide the change of pace she so desperately needs?
Riding high after her smashing D.C. debut, Taryn Reyes hatches a plan to cement her relationship with Gabe. But she may get more than she bargained for when she enlists Brooks’ help.
Evan Harnett would do anything to protect her friends. But one moment of weakness, and now she’s on the outs with both Hunter and Ellie. Hot on the trail of a new story, she’s heartbroken to find it leads straight back to Ellie. Can she save her friend and their friendship?
Brinley Madison’s Clinton-esque downfall was bad enough, but between family obligations, protecting her friends, and managing local gossip, will she be able to regain her social standing without losing her peace of mind?
Privileged kids in a posh hotel with nothing to do but scheme and ski—and they thought D.C. was a pressure cooker? One thing’s for sure: what happens in Vermont definitely won’t stay in Vermont.

My Thoughts: 

The Cover: True to Georgetown Academy standards, yet again a shapely pair of legs in front of yet another prominant US landmark, this time the Washington Monument and our beauty is wearing black and boots. I mean, makes sense if it is winter and you are going away on a ski vaca!

The Plot:  Wow, this was my fav so far! The drama just keeps getting more and more intense. The plot continues to be awesome, full of surprises, with lots of drama and lots of romance, I tell you. Sometimes things change so fast it makes my head spin. And someone is always on the receiving end of some nasty rumors.

The Characters: The characters continue to be very well written, each with their own personalities and character flaws. It was nice to see Taryn land on her feet, so to speak, after Brinley's nasty rumors. And Brinley can spin a story like you wouldn't believe, so don't get on her bad side. Ellie has gone through so much herself and poor Evan is constantly having to put her friends before her own dreams. Everytime there is a newsworthy scoop, it involves her friends and she has to decide again whats more important to her.

Is it Worth Reading?:  Definitely, I can not say that enough. It was a great change of pace as the Georgetown Academy students took a mini vacation and joined kids from other schools and just had some fun. I can't wait to start Book 4, but definitely recommend the whole Georgetown Academy series and give it 4 out of 5 crossbows.
