I’ve greatly enjoyed P.D. Singer’s Mountain series, and followed the story of Jake and Kurt since their first meeting in Fire on the Mountain. The focus of this story isn’t those two men – although they are certainly still an important part of this book – but on the character of Mark who we first meet in Snow on the Mountain. In that previous book, Mark had developed a crush on Jake, one which was unrequited as Jake is firmly in love with Kurt. As this book begins, Mark is not doing particularly ...more
3.5 stars

What I liked was that Mark eventually finds his own guy, Allan a chef and can stop lusting after Jake and feeling miserable and lonely all the time. There is a small unexpected glitch near the start (view spoiler). Mark is experiencing awful nightmares, that stem from surviving the avalanche in Snow on the Mountain where there

Very good m/m romance about a guy who works as a ski patrol at a fancy resort and who's having a hard time getting over both his crush on an unavailable man and not being able to save someone from dying in an avalanche. Will the sexy chef who lives down the hall from him be able to help him move on? I must confess to getting a titch frustrated with the main character's clinginess during part of the book, even though I completely understood why he was acting that way.
The story line continues from the previous book Snow on the Mountain , as Mark deals with the fall out from the avalanche. Although Kurt and Jake (the key characters from the first 2 books in the series) make an appearance in this book ((view spoiler)) the story focuses on a new relationshi ...more

Another solid entry in this series. I was not quite as taken by Mark, the MC in this book, as I was by Jake who is the MC narrator of the first two books. Mark is a ski patroller who worked with Kurt and Jake, and got caught up in the events at the end of Book 2. As this book opens, he is still dealing with the aftermath. Allan is his neighbor and the sole owner of a catering-meals service, whom Mark has not paid attention to until his crush on Jake gets worked out. This book definitely fits int ...more

Mark has nightmares over losing a life in an avalanche, unable to save him, and he has a crush on the man for whom that other man died. He's hiding away from the world, but the world comes to find him in the form a chef Allan, a total cutie. A tentative sexual encounter leads to a dependent relationship when Allan is injured and Mark has legal problems in regards to the loss of life on his watch. Finding a harmonious coexistence is not easy, especially when Mark feels love--and Allan doesn't see ...more

I really liked Mark in the last book and was excited to see him get his own story. Sadly it fell flat for me. Mark turned whiney, clingy, and just weird in this book. I understand he is young but his all or nothing attitude seemed childish to me.
Don't even get me started on Allen. I never did warm up to him. It could be he didn't have enough depth or the depth he did have was that of jerk asshole. By the end when the angst kicked in, in their relationship, I was actually hoping they wouldn't be

Mark gets his own story as he suffers from nightmares about the avalanche that killed Ulf and tries to come to terms with his attraction to Jake. Fortunately Allen is willing to help.

Another complex story from Wapiti Creek. The happy ending is in doubt until the last moment. Excellent read!

We met Mark in the last book, he was in the avalanche with Jake and has a not-so-secret crush on Jake. We find him currently battling nightmares from the avalanche and involved in an investigation of Ulf’s death. He meets Allan, a delightfully “imperfect” chef who enjoys his own cooking.
There is an accident and Allan gets hurt, Mark ends up “helicoptering” (hovering) too close and it almost costs them their relationship.
Mark also gets in trouble with the owner of the ski resort and his evil wife
3.5 stars

"Fall Down the Mountain" is an extension of the series that started with Jake and Kurt. It has stretched out to include extended characters from the Ski lodge where they work in the winter.

Mark from "Snow on the Mountain" finds himself alone and lonely after the avalanche that nearly killed he and Jake. With his crush on Jake unattainable and his head filled with images of the events that killed Ulf, he seeks comfort anywhere he can get it. Kurt is surprisingly understanding and good t
Feb 06, 2014 Anne rated it liked it  ·  review of another edition
This is one riveting book! I enjoyed it. It is told from one of the main character's {Mark} POV. I liked Mark, but found Allan {the other part of the pair} harder to like. I thought Allan was not very understanding and too much of a I want my own way kind of guy. I had no trouble with Mark's feelings, but I thought Allan to be a little hard hearted. Perhaps this was due to the fact that Mark is telling the story, so we don't see Allan's side of it as much.

This book is good as a stand alone readi

This is a story about Mark McAvoy , a late twenties ski patroller that was involved in a controlled avalanche that ended up taking someone’s life. And since then he’s barley living, reliving the accident and death at night and alienating him from everyone during the day. And Allan, a struggling chef who has opened his own catering business, and is trying to teach himself how to ski while his amazing dishes simmer during the afternoon. After Allan takes a tumble and Mark helps him, Mark becomes i ...more
Continuing adventures set in Wapiti ski station, with cameos of Jake and Kurt, but more of a stand alone story about ski patrol Mark McAvoy.
M/M romance with a ski patrol guy and a caterer.
Mark is having a hard time dealing with the deadly avalanche in the last book Snow on the Mountain when he meets the cute great chef, Allan Tengerdie. This is a small world because we get lots of cameos from people in the previous story. Allan gets hurt and Mark totally over compensates and they almost mess up

This is book 3 in the mountain series and focuses on Mark who rescued Jake in the last book. He’s not coping well with the aftermath of the avalanche when he meets his neighbor Allan who is a personal chef. Early in the relationship, Allen hurts himself skiing and is afraid his business will crash. Mark gets all their friends to pull together to help and he starts “helping” Allan and making him nuts. Things fall apart when Allan tells him to back the hell off, he’s making him crazy. I didn’t bla ...more

While there was some confusion on my part, since this is the first book that I've read and it's apparently a series, I ended up liking this one quite a bit.

Honestly it was because I liked Mark and Allan, that I ended up giving it 4 stars and I wasn't all that interested in Kurt and Jake.

The story is really sweet. Mark is fed up with one night stands and wants a relationship, while his friends try to help and set him up, the one guy that he becomes interested in he meets himself.

I didn't realize upon picking up this story that we weren't going to be following the same characters as the first two books, but I quickly fell in love with Mark and his story.

While I throughly enjoyed this story and seeing all the drama unfold with the mountain that happened in the last book, I found that I didn't connect or like Allen as much as I would've liked. He was more shut off than I would've liked.

The narrator did an excellent job witht his book and I really enjoyed li

A pleasant read with its interesting mix of hot romance, intrigue and skiing. I liked that we got to know Mark a bit better. He is a good main character, very easy to feel for (even when he is acting like a real fool) and through him we get to know a lot about snow science and the behind-the-curtains workings of a ski resort. You can tell the author has done her research well! I don't want to write anything spoilerish here, but Mark does get some action, and the relationship that develops there ...more
Took me forever to get through, not because it wasn't good. But because I was listening to it at work, and just had some crazy days, and then a big bank holiday.

This seemed even more rounded out writing wise than the previous ones. It was quite enjoyable.

The narrator did a good job, though kind of sucked with the female voices, but I think I've said that before.

The plot was good.
I liked both Allan and Marc, and it was nice to still see Kurt and Jake involved.
All in all, I look forward to the nex

A good read - this was the 4th I think, but I hadn't read any if the others, and didn't feel like I had to to understand the background. There were a few details included that make me want to go back and read the others though. As far as this story, it was a simple but cute love story that I really enjoyed. Loved it will read more!

Narrator - good voice, well paced. I like it.

Story: Maybe a bit too smooth but solid.

I actually hadn't realized that it is part of a series but it wasn't a problem. I'm going to listen to the other books, too.

She's a big believer in research, first-hand if possible, so the reader can be quite certain PD has skied down a mountain face-first, been stepped on by rodeo horses, acquired a potato burn or two, and will never, ever, write a novel that includes sky-diving.
