RaeAnne Thayne's Sugar Pine Trail. Review and # Giveaway

Posted by Susan B James on 3:00:00 AM with 2 comments
Like Christmas stories? You'll love RaeAnne Thayne's Lastest Haven Point romance, Sugar Pine Trail which comes out September 26th. And I have an ARC to give away.

Spinster Librarian Julia Winston steps way out of her comfort zone when she finds two abandoned children spending the days before Thanksgiving in her library. She can't bear the thought of them being sent to a shelter and possibly separated and offers to take them in until their family is found. She is out of her depth until her temporary tenant, the deliciously sexy Jamie Caine who she's had a secret crush on forever, steps in and offers to help.
RaeAnne just gets better and better. I loved her other Christmas novels and this one doesn't disappoint. Her trademark sweet-wry humor threads through this beautiful story laced with Christmas and family and two people finding their way into love. It's a perfect pre-Christmas read. And if you've read RaeAnne's other books, you'll find a lot of old friends here.
Here's the blurb:

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.

New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author RaeAnne Thayne loves words. Her love affair started as soon as she learned to read, when she used to devour anything she could get her hands on: cereal boxes, encyclopedias, the phone book, you name it! She loves the way words sound, the way they look on the page, and the amazing way they can be jumbled together in so many combinations to tell a story. Her love of reading and writing those words led her to a fifteen-year career in journalism as a newspaper reporter and editor. Through it all, she dreamed of writing the kind of stories she loved best. She sold her first book in 1995 and since then she’s published more than 40 titles. Her books have won many honors, including three RITA® Award nominations from the Romance Writers of America and a Career Achievement Award from RT Book Reviews. RaeAnne finds inspiration in the rugged northern Utah mountains, where she lives with her hero of a husband and their children. She loves to hear from readers and can be reached through her website at www.raeannethayne.com. 

I had the privilege of meeting RaeAnne, along with Kristin Higgins and Robyn Carr at the Ripped Bodice Bookstore and I am delighted to report she is a sweet and clever as her books. Happy Reading.
