Title: Life on the Edge
Author: Jennifer Comeaux
Date Published: 1/3/12


Nineteen-year-old Emily is new to pairs skating, but she and her partner Chris have a big dream–to be the first American team to win Olympic gold. Their young coach Sergei, who left Russia after a mysterious end to his skating career, believes they can break through and make history.

Emily and Chris are on track to be top contenders at the 2002 Winter Games. But when forbidden feelings spark between Emily and Sergei, broken trust and an unexpected enemy threaten to derail Emily’s dreams of gold.

Author Bio:

Jennifer Comeaux earned a Master of Accounting from Tulane University and is a Certified Public Accountant in south Louisiana. While working for a Fortune 1000 company, she sought a creative outlet and decided to put on paper a story that had played in her head for years. That story became Life on the Edge, her first published novel.

When not working or writing, she is an avid follower of the sport of figure skating, travelling to competitions around the country. Those experiences allow her to see another side of the sport and serve as an inspiration for her writing. Jennifer is blessed with a wonderful family and many friends who have encouraged her to pursue her dream of being a published author.



I was excited to read this book about skating.  Growing up I ice skated not even remotely good but it was something we did on the pond out back in the winter.  I always watched the Olympics and wanting to be good at skating.  I was not disappointed this was a very sweet and cute story.

The story starts with Emily just starting to train to skate as a partner with Chris.  Their coach is Russian and his name is Sergei.  The love story is between Emily and Sergei her coach.  They must hide their love affair as it is not thought highly of a coach and skater to have a relationship.  

What happens to Emily and Chris? Do they make it to the Olympics? What happens to Sergi and Emily?  You will need to read and find out what happens.

I really liked the details on how the author went into detail on the details and the work that it takes to be an Olympic skater.  I think anyone would enjoy Life on the Edge like I did.
Make sure to stop at some of these other stops on the tour and read more about Life on the Edge.
