Book Review: Snowfall on Haven Point by RaeAnne Thayne

A holiday romance perfect for Winter!

Being a part of the Snowfall of Haven Point blog tour has been exciting. I have loved getting to read others reviews since its release on September 27th and today I get to share mine with you! The full video review will be linked below within the week. I finished the book last night and when I woke this morning to film the review, I just couldn’t. I got hit with a really bad cold (like I can barely talk or move) otherwise I would have gotten it up for you! Until then… please enjoy all this goodness!

Synopsis:

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.

Overview: 
After a traumatic few years, Andrea moves herself and her two kids to Haven Point with hopes of a fresh start and a holiday full of excitement. When her friend, Wyn, asks her to watch over her brother who was recently involved in a hit-and-run accident, she can’t say no.

Strong and relatable characters, a charming small town with cozy surroundings and the best holiday cheer, a great holiday love story that had me hooked from the start, and the reoccurring themes of family and community!

I wish I had read all the previous books now!

Book Review: The Life She Wants by Robyn Carr

“I knew we’d be great together, but I didn’t have enough imagination to know how great.”

A Charming Read | 4/5 stars | Buy your copy of The Life She Wants

Overview: 
After Emma’s husband commits suicide she is left to deal with his crimes and the backlash. Alone and lost in New York, she heads back to her hometown in California with nothing more than she left with nine years earlier. With the help of an old high school friend and some hard work she gets back on her feet.

What I loved: Well paced, addictive, and Emma was a great character who showed strength, forgiveness, and perseverance.

The Life She Wants was well paced and addictive! I love how the story all came together however the epilogue, I could have either gone without or extended it just a bit. I felt it was really short for how much was thrown at us. Giving just a few more paragraphs or even a page would have been a terrific way to wrap up the book and leave me with all those feel goods!

What I didn’t: The ending. There was so much thrown all at once… I wish it would have let it soak in a bit and extended it out just a little, and there weren’t any big wow moments.

If you liked The One That Got Away (putting your life back together), The Choices We Make (friendship), So Close (difficult pasts), or anything Nicholas Sparks (romance): don’t miss this darling read!
