Annie Romano returns to Fairhaven, Washington, to raise her 5-year-old daughter. She’s starting a business as a personal chef, but it’s taking time and effort to build a clientele and she finds she needs another job to make ends meet for Emma. Back in high school she worked part time at Jameson’s Bakery, so she stops in there to see the owner, her elderly friend, Irene, and ask for a job. It’s clear Irene can’t afford another employee, though, and before the conversation gets going too far, Iren...more

Snowflake Sweethearts is a heartwarming, down to earth story about a single mother who returns to her hometown after a seven year absence. Down on her luck, Annie is desperate to find a job and settle down with her daughter Emma. She reconnects with her high school crush, Alex Jameson, a man who is quite cynical about love. Can the spirit of the season bring these two together? This is a great love story. I really enjoyed the holiday aspects and the idyllic town of Fairhaven.

I loved this book - it was a great book to read over the holidays! I love Carrie's books - they are always uplifting and wonderful stories! I really enjoyed the characters in Snowflake Sweethearts - their histories, the way they interacted together, the different things they were dealing with. Learning to trust the Lord and others was a big theme throughout the book. If you're looking for an enjoyable and inspiring story, be sure to pick this book up!!

I fell in love with the characters. I just wish there was an epilogue on what happened after the shop opened. Loved the story.
Old friendship turns to love. Love these kinds of stories.

Snowflake Sweethearts was the first of Carrie Turansky’s books I’ve read and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Annie Romano, the heroine, has a little girl to provide for so she returns to her hometown to start over where it’s safe. She puts her plans and her life on hold to help care for an older woman and that’s where the adventure begins. Sometimes it’s the bumps in the road that steer us toward the right path and give us a chance to examine our hearts and motives. That’s exactly what happens to Annie...more
Annie Romano brings her young daughter home to Fairhaven, Washington, hoping to find a part-time job at a local bakery, but instead finds herself acting as live-in caregiver to her high school crush’s grandmother (the bakery owner). Alex offers to help stay and settle his grandmother, but he’s a workaholic and must eventually return to San Francisco and continuing hammering out business deals.

Annie and Alex make a charming couple, but Annie has trust issues stemming from the fact that her daught...more
Didn't finish. It started out as a sweet romance but mid-way deteriorated into too much non-denominational feel-good fluff.

I really wish publishers would look at the demographics and realize that there are easily 100 million in this country alone who are either mainstream protestant or catholic. We sorely need inspirational romances that contain descriptions of real liturgy, prayers Christians have actually prayed since the beginning of Christianity, sacraments, creeds, Saints, pilgrimages, rep...more
I'm not sure what it is with 'Love Inspired' authors writing grandmotherly characters that are sweet and spunky and wise, but keep it up! Irene was almost my favourite character in this sweet little book.
I liked how Annie and Alex were friends first before noticing a spark that grew into love. I didn't like how they were both so afraid of being left behind that they didn't talk to each other about those feelings, but thankfully they got it together eventually.
All-in-all, a sweet and gentle remin...more

it was a good book
Going home should mean refuge, but for Annie Romano, it is a reminder of all that she loved and lost—or perhaps never really possessed. Mistakes firmly behind her, Annie returns to Fair Haven, Washington, determined to begin a new life as a personal chef.

But everything changes when an old heartthrob’s grandmother finds herself in desperate need of a caregiver. Annie agrees to help Irene, but vows not to let her heart become entangled again with Alex, Irene’s handsome big-city bachelor grandson....more
