For librarian Julie Winston, she feels like she needs to shake things up a bit in her life. She wants to experience new things, expand her horizons but she never anticipated that falling for her sexy Romeo of a neighbor, Jamie Caine, was the way to go.
When she finds two young boys, brothers, end up in her care for the holidays, she finds Jamie harder to resist especially as he helps Julie out with the boys and to broaden her horizons, one thing at a time. But what happens when Julie finds herself falling in love with Jamie and can she risk her most prized possession- her heart- to Jamie?
I adore RaeAnne Thayne’s novels and her latest holiday story in Haven Point, SUGAR PINE TRAIL, is sweet and delightful from start to finish. We met Jamie back a few books ago and I loved how this guy is so adorable, a rascal and has a sweet sensitive side that doesn’t come out to play until he meets Julie’s new friends. Ms. Thayne delivers a story full of emotion and more as the reader enjoys the holidays in Haven Point and I loved meeting back up with a ton of favorite characters and a few new ones. I loved how cheerful Julie was with parents who taught her the value of helping people who may need it. She does this with a smile and cheer that just astounded me. I loved how Julie literally opened her home to two brothers while trying to make sure they got the home they needed at the time and the love they so desired. She was a delight to enjoy reading about and I, for one, was cheering her on right from page one. Add in Jamie Caine who is a playboy with a past who is determined to find what his brother has found with his lady love, a rented apartment in quiet librarian’s home and you got the makings of a story that will knock your socks off.
RaeAnne Thayne is a wonderful storyteller who delivers heartfelt stories that readers can delve into and enjoy, regardless of the season. Each book is well written and captures the small-town charm that is Haven Point and at times, Hope’s Crossing, which has some of these characters Haven Point stories. The characters are what makes this one of my go to series to read when I need a pick me up. The characters are so well written, delightful and yes, entertaining, that I fall in love with them all over again. Ms. Thayne continues to deliver diverse and intriguing characters in her stories that capture your heart and never let go.
SUGAR PINE TRAIL is a delightful holiday read that can be read at anytime of the year. I look forward to more visits to Haven Point in the future and hope you can check this series out. You won’t be disappointed at all.
