An unlikely attraction brings comfort, joy and unforgettable romance this holiday season!
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…
If there is one thing I know about RaeAnne Thayne is that she can create a wonderful Christmas story and she has done it again. Sugar Pine Trail is a holiday hit that combines a small town setting with all their holiday community traditions, two adorable children that are in need of fostering, a swoon worthy hero, and an ordinary heroine that really isn’t quite ordinary. Jamie Caine and Julia Winston may appear to not belong together but looks can be deceiving, and only love can see how very right these two need each other.
Jamie is going to rent the upstairs apartment at Julia Winston’s Victorian home and comes to her rescue more than once over a short period of time. Julia quite unexpectedly starts to foster two young brothers during the holidays and is totally out of her element. When Jamie saves the day she sees a different side of Jamie and realizes there is more to this handsome man, and more desirable in her eyes. When Jamie began to help her with the boys and accidentally saw her bucket list, he thought it would be fun to help her with it. It might have started out innocently but the more he is with her, the more he begins to care for the passionate woman underneath the librarian shell she shows to the world. A sweet romance develops and makes it a holiday miracle when she finally realizes that Jamie is the man she loves and wants.
RaeAnne Thayne set the mood for the holidays with cookies baking, holiday shopping and tree trimming. A romance between two unlikely characters that was delightful and very entertaining. A special bonus was seeing his family again and the other couples from Hope’s Crossing. She also highlights what the holidays can be when you give back in small ways to make someone else’s a little brighter for someone in need. I absolutely loved this story and with each new one I fall more in love with RaeAnne Thayne and the small town of Haven Point.
