Review: Sugar Pine Trail

Book Review: Sugar Pine Trail, by RaeAnne Thayne, 5 stars


Librarian Julia Winston is ready to ditch the quiet existence she's been living. She's made a list of new things to experience, but falling for Jamie Caine, her sexy military pilot neighbor, isn't one of them. Julia's looking to conquer life, not become the heartbreaker's latest conquest. But when two young brothers wind up in Julia's care for the holidays, she'll take any help she can get—even Jamie's.
Happy to step in, Jamie reveals a side of himself that's much harder to resist. Not only is he fantastic with kids, he provides the strength Julia needs to tackle her list. She knows their temporary family can't last beyond the holidays, but the closer she gets to Jamie, the more she wonders if things could be this merry and bright forever…

Genre: contemporary romance

Publication date: September 2017

Mature content: yes, but very subdued

Review: Sugar Pine Trail is another lovely feel good romance by RaeAnne Thayne.

In some places I found it a bit fairytale-ish, especially where the children were concerned - I kept thinking about how my own children would react in a similar situation and I couln't picture things going so smoothly. And there was also no need for the I'm-just-a-plain-girl-and-he's-so-sexy mantra. Mentioning it once would have been enough.

But in any case, the author still doesn't go so overboard with the story it turns unrealistic. It's nice, heartwarming and once you start, you just can't put it down. Perfect for the upcoming holidays season. And we all need a bit of fairytale once in a while.

Sugar Pine Trail is part of the Haven Point Series but can be read as a stand-alone.

Happy Monday,
