Snow Angel Cove
HQN / October 28, 2014 / $7.99 print, digital
Nothing short of a miracle can restore Eliza Hayward's Christmas cheer. The job she pinned her dreams on has gone up in smoke—literally—and now she's stuck in an unfamiliar, if breathtaking, small town. Precariously close to being destitute, Eliza needs a hero, but she's not expecting one who almost runs her down with his car!
Rescuing Eliza is pure instinct for tech genius Aidan Caine. At first, putting the renovation of his lakeside guest lodge in Eliza's hands assuages his guilt—until he sees how quickly he could fall for her. Having focused solely on his business for years, he never knew what his life was missing before Eliza, but now he's willing to risk his heart on a yuletide romance that could lead to forever.
It was during my reading of RaeAnne Thayne's Snow Angel Cove that I had an epiphany. I get it. I finally get why small town contemporary romances are such a big deal. I understand now why they are so insanely popular and new small town-set series seem to hit the shelves every other week. It’s the comfort factor. The Calgon-Take-Me-Away feeling that reading stories like this one can induce. You know what reading Snow Angel Cove reminded me of? Those cozy made-for-TV holiday movies that begin to overrun The Hallmark Channel after Thanksgiving.
