          There's no place like Haven Point for the holidays, where the snow conspires to bring two wary hearts together for a Christmas to remember

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.

The characters are well-developed, diverse and easy to like. They have a multitude of traits and problems readers can relate to and appreciate. The strengths and weaknesses of the characters add depth to the story.

The quaint setting has the feel and flow of a small town enhancing the story. The author’s detailed descriptions bring the community to life making you wish you could physically visit the area.

Author RaeAnne Thayne
New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author RaeAnne Thayne loves words. Her love affair started as soon as she learned to read, when she used to devour anything she could get her hands on: cereal boxes, encyclopedias, the phone book, you name it! She loves the way words sound, the way they look on the page and the amazing way they can be jumbled together in so many combinations to tell a story.

Her love of reading and writing those words led her to a fifteen-year career in journalism as a newspaper reporter and editor.

Through it all, she dreamed of writing the kind of stories she loved best. She sold her first book in 1995 and since then she’s published more than 40 titles. Her books have won many honors, including three RITA® Award nominations from the Romance Writers of America and a Career Achievement Award from RT Book Reviews.

RaeAnne finds inspiration in the rugged northern Utah mountains where she lives with her hero of a husband and their children. She loves to hear from readers and can be reached through her website at

  2. There's something about a book like that that just reminds me of being snowed in with a fire and nowhere to go--and nothing to do but READ!

  3. It sounds really sweet. Although trapped by a blizzard with a houseful of kids might push me over the edge.

  4. You're finding the nicest-sounding holiday romances, Mason! And there is something about the season that just lends itself to that sort of happiness, isn't there? Thanks for sharing this one.
