Review: Snowfall on Haven Point

Book Review: Snowfall on Haven Point, by RaeAnne Thayne

✩✩✩✩

It's been two rough years since Andrea Montgomery lost her husband, and all she wants is for her children to enjoy their first Christmas in Haven Point. But then Andie's friend asks a favor—to keep an eye on her brother, Sheriff Marshall Bailey, who's recovering from a hit and run. Andie will do anything for Wyn, even park her own misgivings to check on her grouchy, wounded bear of a brother. 
Marshall hates feeling defenseless and resents the protective impulses that Andie brings out in him. But when a blizzard forces them together for the holidays, something in Marshall begins to thaw. Andie's gentle nature is a salve, and her kids' excitement for the holidays makes him forget why he never wanted a family. If only he and Andie can admit what they really want—each other—their Christmas wishes might come true after all.

Genre: contemporary romance

Publishing date: September 2016

Mature content: nothing to report.

Review: I loved everything about this book. All the characters are amazing. The love story between Andrea and Marshall develops naturally and is totally believable. There is no instant lust, no love at first sight. They just grow from passing acquaintances to friends, and then realize that, in between Andrea's haunting past, Marshall's recovery, meddling families and approaching holiday celebrations, they fell in love. They both fight their feelings initially, but they were just so perfect for each other. Andrea's children add a bit of magic to the story, and even their pets are cute, especially Mrs. Finnegan, the shy cat.

The author added a bit of suspense to the story, but it's fairly easy to guess early on who the culprit is, though the way Marshall handles the situation made me add a few points to his chart. The story is also intertwined with other books by RaeAnne Thayne, but I haven't read most of them and did not feel I was missing anything important.

 

This is a wonderful feel-good romance story that will leave you feeling all warm and fuzzy inside. It's a perfect read for a lazy fall/winter weekend and for the upcoming holidays season. Totally recommended.

Happy readings,
