Today I’m thrilled to share my review on What Happens in the Alps by T. A. Williams.
My Review – What Happens in the Alps
Annie Brewer had her entire life turned upside down when her husband Steve died in a terrible accident, but now two years later, she’s finally ready to take control of her life again. Ready for a new path and a new project, Annie begins to set up shop by opening a school in the Italian Alps. While she ventures out on her new path, Annie runs into Steve’s best friend, Matt, who is also on a new path in life. Matt becomes a permanent fixture in her life, and she’s thankful to have him around for support. However easy he may be on the eyes, Annie’s wary of his playboy past and wandering eye and only thinks of him as an older brother figure in her life. Is Matt the same old player or has he changed over the years?
Will Annie be ready to allow another man into her life after losing the great love of her life and best friend? After only a few pages, I found myself vested in the story and eagerly looking forward to seeing where this story would take me next. I could tell from the get-go that this was written in T.A. William’s classic style and knew that it would be an enjoyable ride.
One of the main themes of the novel is moving on with life after tragedy strikes. In this particular story, there was series of events that unfolded in Annie’s life, that brought her to exactly where she needed to be. Sometimes you don’t realize what you want and need out of life before it’s too late, and sometimes you can just manage to make it work.
What Happens in the Alps is a well-written, wonderful story and an overall fantastic novel. If you enjoy women’s fiction with a bit of humor thrown in for good measure, this is the one for you.
I received a complimentary Advanced Review Copy courtesy of the author via Karan Eleni Book Tours and NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review. You can purchase an e-copy of the novel on Amazon for $3.99.

About the Author – T.A. Williams
Firstly, my name isn’t T A. It’s Trevor. I write under the androgynous name T A Williams because 65% of books are read by women. In my first book, “Dirty Minds” one of the (female) characters suggests the imbalance is due to the fact that men spend too much time getting drunk and watching football. I couldn’t possibly comment. Ask my wife…
I’ve written all sorts: thrillers, historical novels, short stories and now I’m enjoying myself hugely writing humour and romance. Romantic comedies are what we all need from time to time. Life isn’t always very fair. It isn’t always a lot of fun, but when it is, we need to embrace it. If my books can put a smile on your face and maybe give your heartstrings a tug, then I know I’ve done my job.
I‘ve lived all over Europe, but now I live in a little village in sleepy Devon, tucked away in south west England. I love the place. That’s why you’ll find leafy lanes and thatched cottages in most of my books. Oh, yes, and a black Labrador.
I’ve been writing since I was 14 and that is half a century ago. However, underneath this bald, wrinkly exterior, there beats the heart of a youngster. My wife is convinced I will never grow up. I hope she’s right.
