CHAPTER ONE



“This is going to be the best vacation ever!” My best friend Maddie had a habit of overusing the words best and ever.

Everything she did was the “best ever,” but her optimism was an endearing trait. Nothing short of a natural disaster could get Madison Evans down. Scratch that. She handled natural disasters with as much cheerfulness and grace as everything else that came her way.

“How can a trip to Whistler excite you so much, Mads?” Her enthusiasm brought a smile to my face. “It’s just a ski resort. You’ve been on real adventures.”

The day after our high school graduation, Maddie had announced that she was going to see the world. In a spur-of-the-moment decision, she deferred college for a year and set out on a backpacking trip around Europe, turning one of our long talked-about travel dreams into reality. After Europe, she had to see Asia, then Africa, then Antarctica. Along the way, her wandering feet opened her eyes, mind, and heart.

Although she never made it to college, she did manage to launch a successful travel agency that doubled as a charity. Roads Traveled-Hearts Touched enabled people to not only see remote parts of the world on a budget, but to also belong to a volunteer force for those in need. Maddie and her adventurous clients had built schools and orphanages in various parts of Africa and South America, and even helped with much-needed relief in countless disaster areas.

My best friend fixed her dark brown eyes on my light blue ones and grinned. “First of all, this is going to be the best trip ever because you’ll be by my side,” she said. “Dylan Silver and Madison Evans—back together again!”

The two of us had been inseparable since the day she shared her Nutella sandwich with me in kindergarten, but for the past four years we’d only seen each other through our computer screens. Her long absence had left a void in both my heart and my life, but I knew that travel was her calling. Unlike me, Maddie lived in the moment and craved constant motion.

Even now, as we sat in the back seat of a taxi on the way to Denver International Airport, her knees bounced up and down and her fingers strummed against the denim of her jeans.

“Second of all,” Maddie said, flashing me another toothy smile, “we’ll be living like royalty, Dee.”

One of her wealthy clients had given her a key to his private cabin near the beautiful Whistler-Blackcomb ski resort. The large mansion was nestled deep in the mountains and all of its lavish amenities were ours for an entire week.
