Book & eBook reviews from a mom who forgets to do the housework because she's busy reading chicklit, romance, Christian, YA, mystery, paranormal, fantasy or other ebooks. Seriously, I'm phoning in pizza tonight!
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…
I loved Sugar Pine Trail from the first page. Julia has one of the biggest hearts. She's given up everything for those she loves/d. She's quite funny, and though a bit insecure her character is completely endearing. Jamie meets her and though she seems not to be his type he can't quite stay away and he wants to help her step out of her comfort zone. I LOVE Jamie. He's got just as big a heart as Julia. He's totally swoon worthy and more than just a handsome face.
Julia and Jamie's story is emotional in every way possible. It takes a lot for a book to make me cry but RaeAnne Thayne was very successful. If you enjoy a small-town romance that will have you floating in the clouds then I highly recommend Sugar Pine Trail.
