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 favorto 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 wanteach othertheir Christmas wishes might come true after all.
Overcoming self-doubt and fear plays a big part in Thayne's fifth Haven Point contemporary (after Riverbend Road). Widow Andrea Montgomery wants to make her two kids' first Christmas in Haven Point, Idaho, as memorable as possible. Then she's emotionally blackmailed into checking up on a man who makes her nervous. Sheriff Marshall Bailey has enough to deal with: a broken leg, embezzlement within his own department, and a son who has no idea Marshall is his father. The last thing he wants or needs is help from a wary widow. However, their constant interactions and a blizzard that forces the two to live together for a couple of days help attraction develop, bringing a chance at happiness for two reluctant hearts. The wrap-up of the subplots is too easy, and Marshall's incessant refusal of help is grating, but adorable kids, cute pets, and neighborly values make for a sweet read.

Snowfall on Haven Point
Loved the story and the characters. Great read.
Once again RaeAnne Thayne has brought us a wonderfully heartwarming story from Haven Point. Andie Montgomery and her two small children immediately stole my heart and they were the perfect little family to help thaw the heart of the stoic and gruff Sheriff Marshall Bailey. Helping Marshall while he heals from a recent injury would try the patience of a saint but Andie won't let her friend and Marshall's sister down. Marshall hates to rely on anyone for help but he is drawn in by Andie's calm and caring demeanor as well as her incredible children. The pairing of these two was perfect and in addition to the wonderful romance slowly developing between Marshall and Andie we get the mystery of what is going on inside Marshall's department as well as who could possibly be stalking Andie.
This one has it all and it's one you don't want to miss. I highly recommend it.
Another great visit to Haven Point!
Another sweet story out of Haven Point!

Sheriff Marshall Bailey isn't the warm and fuzzy type on a good day, and now that he's out of commission from being injured in a hit and run, he's as cranky as a bear. Andie will do just about anything for her friend Wynona ... even go check in on her brother, the man that she's nervous to be around!
Marsh doesn't like needing anybody, and he tries to run off the neighborly do gooder with bad behavior, but she's not falling for it. And when her young children start to worm their way under his defenses too, he knows he's in trouble! When a freak snow storm has the little family needing a place to stay for Christmas, Marsh finds himself looking forward to the holiday more than he should!
