Be Just As Wonderful Asjust as wonderful as about Hope s Crossing 4 Stars A lovely readA charming story with some familiar characters in a new setting and while the story takes place around the holiday season it can be read any time of year My heart went out to Aidan Caine and the circumstances that had him rethinking about the important things in life What a good ind sweet man and I hated how the residents of Haven Point misjudged him and held him responsible for near collapse of their town He had so much to deal with and they just added to his misery I was glad that he had Eliza and "her adorable daughter Maddie who came unexpectedly into his life but I wish "adorable daughter Maddie who came unexpectedly into his life but I wish had gone to bat for him sooner I did feel bad for her she was dealing with a lot herself but I didn t like how she was so critical of Aidan He opened up his home to her and did everything to make up for what happened earlier in the story when it clearly wasn t his fault When she finally understood the enormity of what he was dealing with his own scary life changing circumstances she did come around and gave him the support he needed and was so deserving of These were two people who clearly needed each other and their romantic journey was a sweet oneOh my the Caines from the Hope s Crossing series come for a visit and what a delight it was to catch up with them most especially my man Dylan He was my absolute favorite in that series along with his new wife Gen I didn t realize they would play a role here and it was a pleasant surprise to connect with them again I was a little disappointed with the ending and while it was satisfying it came on suddenly and I never really got to enjoy Aidan and Eliza as a couple I m hoping as the series moves forward that we ll see them again along with that cutie Maddie I have no doubt we will since the next book focuses on Aidan s best friend Ben and the town mayor McKenzie who befriended ElizaThere is sexual tension but this is a clean romance Frankly these stories really reuire nothing than some smooching and thoughts and expressions about the desire the main characters have for each other It s enough the story itself had plenty of impactThe author does a wonderful job endearing the reader to the characters and their plight engaging emotions and bringing the hometown feel and sense of community into the story A pleasant thought provoking book about family and friends finding true love and grabbing a hold of life before it passes you by.

RaeAnne Thayne î 4 Free download35 stars I love this book It was hard for me to think of leaving the fictional town of Hope s Crossing from the former series created by RaeAnne Thayne I had grown so attached to the characters especially the Caine family I new she was going to start a new series of books and I was a little curious to see how the first book would be I shouldn t have worried It was wonderful To bridge the gap the first book is about Aiden Caine who is from Hope s Crossing We have met him a couple times in RaeAnne s previous books He is a tech genius and the multimillionaire owner of his own company Because he s lived in Calif he s only popped in the other books here and there plus he s very uiet In this book he s bought a large guest lodge in Idaho as a place where his huge extended family can come for the holidays and where he can relax when he s not working in Calif Unfortunately he happens to hit Eliza with a rental car after skidding on a piece of ice Eliza and her little girl Maddie have come to Lake Haven to begin a new job but they arrive to find out the job managing a hotel has gone up in smoke it is burning down as she arrives She has no idea what she will do now and it s at that moment that Aiden hits her as she Maddie are crossing the streetAiden feels terrible about hitting Eliza and finds out she has no place to go so he invents a job for her at his guest job since his family is coming and he needs help getting it ready anyway I so much enjoyed all the characters in the book Sue Jim the caretakers of the lodge were wonderful people I especially enjoyed RaeAnne having all the Caines come for Christmas to the lodge What fun to catch up with them and get to interact with them again And I loved Eliza s little girl Maddie What a sweet sweet girl she was The relationship between Aiden and Eliza was very believable also Both of them were so reluctant because of their pasts but they had a lot to give each other I would highly recommend this book I started this earlier apparently in February but got diverted when I realized that there were obviously some characters from another series involved I hate reading things out of order For some reason this hit my radar again and I just went with it There is a lot missing from prior books but I was swept up so much into Aiden and Eliza that I just didn t careI was pulled into Eliza by the disaster she faces in the beginning of this book She arrives at her new job as a hotel manager only to find the place burned to the ground So much for the job Worse crossing the street with her daughter she s then hit by an SUV that hit a patch of black ice Nothing serious but enough to bring her to the attention of the driver Aiden Caine Surprisingly this didn t feel contrived at all Thayne does an excellent job making it all seem plausible and at least part of that is in drawing us to Eliza and experiencing the events with herAs important to the story is Eliza s daughter Maddie Again Thayne delivers a good deal of drama and makes it real through her extremely well drawn characters You can see Eliza s care and courage her strength and determination and her vulnerability and need all wrapped up in her daughter s welfare You d have to be made of stone not to want to help her and Aiden is not thatAiden is his own level of engaging A "driven tech geek he s successful and smart but is also recovering from his own setback and need for "tech geek he s successful and smart but is also recovering from his own setback and need for You can see his strength and vulnerability as well and it was a pure delight watching as he s drawn to both Maddie and Eliza at first for their plight but very uickly in their own right as well I loved watching him fall in love with Maddie nearly as much as with her motherMy only hesitation on the five stars is that Maddie is a little too perfect as the five year old with medical issues I ve nown children as good natured as she is but never any so consistently so It s a small detraction in the overall excellence of the book though so in the end it didn t affect my rating This was an incredible story and I look forward to delving into some of Thayne s backlog soon Small town romances can go in two very different directions for me I usually either REALLY love them or REALLY hate them Since they are typically low angst and less steamy I really need to be able to bond not only with the hero and heroine but also with the community and secondary characters If I can find myself immersed into the everyday life of the community and get a real feel for what would be like to live there and fit in then
