The Perfect Holiday Read!

It’s a long way from New York to Idaho…but could they have found a home at last?

Dani Capelli has never truly belonged anywhere. And from her earliest days as a foster child in Queens, she would have been lost if it weren’t for her love of animals. Until high school, when she fell hard for the wrong boy, and found herself pregnant—and married—by graduation. Two daughters later, Dani realized her mistake and filed for divorce, and with the help of scholarships and loans—and a lot of macaroni and cheese dinners—she enrolled in vet school. Things were finally looking up…until her ex-husband became her late husband, in the most notorious way possible.

Now Dani and her daughters need an out-of-town pass more than ever. So when the retiring Haven Point veterinarian offers her a chance to settle in the small Idaho town and take over his practice, she jumps at it. But adjusting to the charming mountain community isn’t easy; thirteen-year-old Silver begins acting out while six-year-old Mia is growing too attached to Haven Point and everything in it, especially their next-door-neighbor, Deputy Sheriff Ruben Morales. And Dani can’t blame her. Ruben is everything she’s secretly wanted—and everything she can’t bear to risk loving…and losing.

As the holidays draw near, their shared concern for Dani’s daughters brings them closer together, giving Ruben the chance to show this big-city woman just how magical Christmas in Haven Point can be...and that the promise of a home at last is very real in the most wondrous season of the year…

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's nothing I like better than to be in Haven Point at Christmastime! This author can create stories and characters that put me in the time and place that make me feel like I'm right there in that town alongside these people, experiencing what they are! I feel like I know all of them - and I wish I did! In this book we have Dani, her two children and Deputy Reuben Morales as the main characters. I fell in love with Reuben. He's one of my favorite characters in the whole series! You don't have to read any of the other books to know what is happening in this book, it's a standalone, but all of the books in this series are great. I would love to live in Haven Point! Dani and her kids come from back east to Idaho to run the veterinary clinic in town from Reuben's father. Dani has a difficult past and she's risen above it. She doesn't want to start a relationship with a man during this busy time but she's drawn to Reuben. He's so kind and compassionate to her and her children. Silver and Mia were written so realistically, especially Silver who is a teenager and gets in all kinds of trouble. I wasn't particularly fond of Dani all the time through the book. She seemed a little too rude and standoffish most of the time but in the end, she changed. I know her background wasn't the best but I still felt she could have been nicer! I loved her young daughter, Mia, though and as I said, Reuben was awesome! The whole book is awesome for the holidays and I highly recommend it to anyone! It will put you in the Christmas spirit! I received this book through Net Galley & the author but was not required to review it. These thoughts are my own.

This is a wonderful small town contemporary romance set in the quaint town of Haven Point, Idaho. It is book nine in the Haven Point series but it is easily read standalone. Dani Capelli is a strong determined female character that has come to Haven Point for two reasons. First to complete her veterinarian internship and secondly to give herself and her two daughters a fresh start. She desperate to put their past behind them and keep it quiet. If she were looking for a man Deputy Ruben Morales would be just the type she would be searching for but a man is not in her immediate future and she needs to keep the good deputy at arms length. That's easier said than done when the magic of Haven Point and the season start to cause all the walls she built up around her to slowly crumble. Will the past rip away any chance of a happy future for this family? The story, writing, and characters make this a book not to be missed. I highly recommend it.
