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.
One thing I can always count on about reading a Haven Point novel is the romance. Thayne never disappoints in this area and that is one of the reasons I keep coming back for more. Snowfall On Haven Point could be read as a standalone but this is where I say where is the fun in that? Getting to know the characters from the very beginning from when they first are introduced is fun and watching they fall for one another when their time comes it's exciting.
Andrea and her two young children are introduced in Riverbend Road when she first moves to town. She is the widow of a police officer who was killed in the line of duty. Now that she has found a new home for her and her children she is fitting in this community. When her new friend Wyn asks her to look out for her brother who just recently broke his leg she knows she can't say no but the more time she spends with the crabby Marshall the more she starts falling. The only thing stopping her from falling harder is the simple fact that again she is falling for a cop and she can't risk what might come.
Marshall is in Haven Point not only because he's hurt but a secret he needs to get a better handle on before it comes to light. He is also looking into some missing money from his station and someone tried to kill him, with Christmas just around the corner the last thing he needs is to fall for the one woman who hasn't had it easy but spending time with her and her two kids is making something shift in his chest and when it comes down to it they will be his Christmas miracle.
I really enjoyed this one and not because it takes place during the Christmas season. Marshall is crabby but a really good man. Right away he comes off as so serious but once he meets Andrea's kids I loved the different side he started to show. When Andrea was first introduced in this series she came off cold and a loner but in this book she is warm and funny. I liked how Thayne had her fitting in and finally getting over the horrible things that happened to her when she first moved to Haven Point.
While this book doesn't have any sex scenes which totally bummed me out it made me connect with this characters on a whole new level and let me focus on the romance that was building between. This was just an all around sweet read with the mystery on who was out to hurt Marshall.
The ending was done really well and I liked that their was an epilogue that shows these two in the future. After reading that HEA it really made me happy to see how things worked out for everyone.
If you're looking for a sweet romance that has a little Christmas cheer and two adorable kids who can make a crabby police officer fall for them I would definitely go out and buy Snowfall on Haven Point. I really enjoyed this read and I actually am looking forward to reading more Haven Point Novels.
