About this ebook

In the town of Silver Bells, there’s always a feeling of Christmas in the air… Let love—and RaeAnne Thayne—melt your heart this holiday season!

This New Year will bring widowed nurse Abigail Powell a fresh start in a different city. Excited about the chance to create an unforgettable Christmas for her young son in picturesque Silver Bells, Colorado, Abby has been hired to take care of her dear friend’s recuperating grandmother. But sprightly senior Winnie insists she doesn’t need looking after. What she does need is help decorating her historic mansion, Holiday House, for a seasonal town fundraiser. Abby warms to the festive task, but she’ll have to contend with her own personal Grinch: Winnie’s prickly grandson, Ethan Lancaster.

Ethan Lancaster is good at a lot of things. Relationships surely aren’t one of them. His ex-fiancée convinced Ethan he was incapable of love, and he believes her…up until the moment he impulsively kisses Abby. What is it about this vibrant woman and her sweet son that knocks his world off-kilter? He knows they’re leaving town after Christmas. He just didn’t expect they’d be taking a little of his heart with them. But as he and Abby work together on the magical Holiday House through the record cold weather, visions of a different future dance in his head…one filled with warmth, love and a new beginning for them both.

Return to Hope’s Crossing this Christmas in New York Times bestselling author RaeAnne Thayne’s latest heartwarming story of matchmaking at the holidays, All is Bright!

There are actually two romances going on in this story but more than that, this story is about Christmas, recovering from losses, overcoming the past and beginning fresh, plus enjoying friends and family! That might sound like way too much to put in a book but the author is just that talented! Her stories are always filled with wonderful characters, towns that become part of the story and so much emotion. I am drawn in from the very beginning of this story and when it ends, I want to cry! I am not ready for this book to end! Abby's husband is murdered two years prior to the opening of this book and she's still trying to put together the pieces of her life but her son, Christopher, is turning 5 and she has decided that a new city is the next step in her life. Before she moves, however, she will go to Silver Bells, Colorado to help out her college roommate's grandmother who needs nursing help through the holiday. She can never guess how much it will change her life. Christopher is an amazing boy! I fell in love with him from the start! So cheerful and full of life! Abby is a little overprotective but she's a single mom so... She meets "Grandma" Winnie and instantly falls in love with her. Then comes her grandson, Ethan, and they first rub each other wrong but things can change. I really enjoyed the romance between Lucy and Jose. It was very honest and real. Lucy has been globe-trotting for years because she doesn't want to commit to anything and Jose wants her to face life. Jose's brother, Rod, is the sweetest character ever! Holiday House was a place I want to live! The people in the town are amazing! A fantastic story with so many takeaways! I loved it all!

Christmas at Holiday House by RaeAnne Thayne. Abrigail Powell and Ethan Lancaster are the main two characters. Abigail is a nurse and a single mom to Christopher getting ready to move cities when her best friend talks her into going to care for her grandmother Winnie in Sliver Bells, Colorado. Abrigail and Christopher arrive at Holiday House to find that Ethan is trying to convince Winnie to go into rehab and Winnie is totally against that because she wants her house decorated for Christmas and wants to do all the activities that she normally does. Along the way while working together to give Winnie what she wants Abrigail and Ethan fall in love. This was a wonderful book and I totally recommend to anyone looking for a great book to read.

No one can spin a holiday tale quite like Raeanne Thayne and this one does not disappoint. Christmas at Holiday House is a feel good story with not one but two romances to lift your heart. All the while the author paints a beautiful picture of snow covered fields, beautiful lights, and a quaint little town filled with wonderful characters and Christmas cheer all around. She makes you feel like you're right in the middle of it all too. If you only pick up one holiday book this year make it this one. I highly recommend it.
