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…
Warm and caring
I loved this new addition to this Haven Point, Idaho series which is about librarian, Julia Winston, and lead pilot for Caine Tech, Jamie Caine. With flights back and forth to Hope’s Crossing, Colorado, the Caine characters from both series mesh! It does hold its own and can be read as a standalone. Abandoned, Clinton, age 8 and Davy, age 6 grabbed my heart from the beginning. I shed many a tear, both in heartbreak and in joy. Love, strength, courage, and hope make this another wonderful book to read. As one that takes place during the Christmas season, it is another warm and caring story with top notch writing by this author.
A fantastic book with an emotionally charged story that kept me turning page after page.I really enjoyed both of these characters and the growth as people they both experienced. Julia is the quiet, reserved librarian who is ready for something new in her life. Living alone in a huge house just isn't working anymore. She has no idea how much her life will change this holiday season. First she rents her upstairs apartment to carefree Jamie Caine. Then she finds herself the temporary care provider for two young brothers. Things are definitely picking up around the old house these days!
I highly recommend this one!
Sugar Pine Trail
After several tempting introductions to Jamie Caine in previous books in her Hope’s Crossing and Haven Point series, RaeAnne Thayne rewards her loyal readers with Jamie Caine’s story. Jamie, currently a pilot for Caine Tech, rents the second story of Julia Winston’s Victorian home while waiting for construction of his new condo to be completed. Julie Winston is head librarian at the town public library. Quite by accident Julia takes in two abandoned boys until a permanent foster home placement can be arranged. Unexpectedly, Jamie begins to reach out to help Julia in providing a joyful holiday season for the boys. Jamie is a very likeable character. Learning about the tragedies in his past, he becomes more to the reader than just a “good looking guy”. Julia’s sacrifices in her personal life while providing care for elderly parents, results in a rather lonely life. RaeAnne Thayne is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. Like comfort foods, certain books become “comfort books.” Ms. Thayne’s books have become my new comfort books. I find myself reading them slowly so they will last longer. Sugar Pine Trail is a rewarding Christmas holiday read. Julie and Jamie are characters one would embrace as friends. Great cover art and a wonderful addition to this series.
