Start your review of Snow Angel Cove (Haven Point, #1)
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 I’m likely going to enjoy the story. It’s a hard thing to a ...more
4 Stars! A lovely read!

A 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, kind, 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 mise

So, I mean. I specifically picked this book up to get over a massive overdose of feely-feels from my last read. I wanted a fluffy simple experience in order to reset my brain. And I guess this did the job. It's a quick read, harmless, sweet, with some sad sorta-tragic backstory but set against the hope and magic of Christmas and healing and perspective. There's also a five year old with an imaginary horse friend and a heart condition.

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 care.

I 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

Snow Angel Cove is the first book I’ve read from RaeAnne Thayne and I’m not disappointed! Well, maybe a little disappointed that it took me this long to read one of her uplifting novels, but at least I got to it! One of the main reasons I chose this one to start with is because it’s a CHRISTMAS ROMANCE. I’m all about holiday romances this year and am reading a myriad of them from all different authors. Seeing as I’ve been

Wonderful start to the new series. Eliza has come to Haven Point to start a new job as a hotel manager only to learn that the hotel has just burned to the ground. With no job and no home, she's not sure what she's going to do. As she and her daughter are crossing the street, she is hit by a car that hit a patch of black ice. Aidan is horrified by what happened, and how much worse it could have been. As he takes Eliza and her daughter back to his home for the night, he wonders what he can do to h ...more

Eliza Hayward came to Haven Point to start fresh and with a new job, and Christmas coming up she never thought that anything could go wrong, but she was mistaken. The hotel she was going to manage burned down, so she is out of a job. And then with her daughter while crossing the street, she gets run over by a truck sliding on black ice and she meets the infamous Aidan Caine. She knows of him and his reputati

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 knew 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 Ra ...more
why hello Christmas book.

Snow Angel Cove was just a random ass book that I found to read for a certain challenge. I had zero expectations for this because I just wanted to get it done and over with. Not going to lie, it was cute and I was definitely in the holiday mood. In it, you will meet Eliza and Aiden. The romance was really cute between them and it made me happy.

Other than that, the pacing was actually a surprise to me. Everything flowed pretty well throughout the book and it kept me want

As far as I’m concerned, RaeAnne Thayne has done it again. Snow Angel Cove, the first in her new Haven Point series, but with a tie-in from Hope’s Crossing, is so good, you’ll want to read it as soon as it comes out. I can guarantee you that you will read it over and over again. That’s the way I feel and I just finished it!

Aidan and Eliza (And Maddie) make Snow Angel Cove the perfect holiday story. Eliza is having a run of very bad luck. The book opens with her and her daughter showing up in Hav

Snow Angel Cove by RaeAnne Thayne is a wonderful, sweet holiday romance and you will not be disappointed. The characters are complex and well written, compelling and sympathetic. Eliza Hayward is a single mother struggling to care for her precocious daughter, Maddie. Aiden Caine is a driven entrepreneur who has closed his heart to romance.
When their worlds collide neither of them will ever be the same. The setting of their story is charming and well written. You will be drawn in by the setting

What an amazing book! An awesome new series! I loved how it connected Hope Crossing and Haven Point. I had a hard time trying to put the book down. I needed to find out what would happen next. I love how all the characters come together and come alive. I felt like I was at Snow Angel Cove with them. A great Christmas Story that should be read every Christmas. A great ending to the book but have the tissues handy. It is a tear jerker. I really hated to see the book end. I can't wait for the next ...more

I absolutely LOVED Snow Angel Cove. I cannot wait for more books in this new series. I think I will reread it again tonight.

I was a bit skeptical going into the new series. I wasn't sure I wanted to leave Hopes Crossing and start a whole new love with a new town and new people. I'm so glad that I did.
You will love this story of Eliza, Maddie and Aidan!!

“The way I see it, you’re like a fairy-tale prince and I’m Cinderella without the godmother and the cool shoes.”

This was the perfect choice to start off my holiday season. This book was a very easy, cute, feel good story with only lovable characters and a happy plot. I would recommend for fans of chicklit or those that are looking for a mindless holiday read. You can tell this one book is a piece of a larger story with the same characters/town, so you don’t get a ton of detail into the

Great holiday romance....

Snow Angel Cove by RaeAnne Thayne is a contemporary holiday romance that is perfect for the holiday season. This is an atmospheric story about two broken individuals in a lovely setting. It is fast easy read that one can follow and quite predictable. Sometimes that is ok and fun. If you're looking for a Hallmark-like book, this is it. Hope to continue the series.

Despite her huge backlist, RaeAnne Thayne was a new-to-me author. I have never read her books before – and because I have read more M/M romance over the last few years, I don’t pay attention much to the M/F contemporary romance genres. I have only started reading them again this year, and this one caught my attention while I was browsing through new releases with holiday themes.

In the beginning, I was a bit worried when I found out that the hero, Aidan Caine, was related to Thayne’s character in

I love romances and I love romances that are set in small towns, where one of the characters has a huge family and the book is all about small town interactions as well as family interactions! Moreover, I love Christmas, complete with all its frills and chills, the snow and the tree, the carol singing and just about everything! This book brings together both my loves and therefore logic says that I have to love it, right? And I did!

RaeAnne Thayne is a splendid author who is among Debbie Macomber

Snow Angel Cove is the first paperback that I have read by RaeAnne Thayne, I enjoyed it so much that I'm now following RaeAnne, this way I can now keep up with all the books in future that will be published. A beautiful story. Eliza Hayward is excited to start a new job as a hotel manager. Unfortunately some extremely sad news happens the hotel flared through with a fire, now Eliza can't start her new job. Aiden Caine founder and CEO of Caine Tech had just crashed his car into Eliza Jane Howard. ...more

It is cold and icy here and I am in the mood for a good Christmas time romance. Thankfully I picked up Snow Angel Cove and immediately fell right into a story that just made me forget about the world around me. Instead I became involved in the lives of Eliza and Aiden and the small town of Haven Point.

The romance between Eliza and Aiden, well it just felt right. The plot moves along at a wonderful pace and the story keeps you wanting more. Overall this is just an enjoyable book to read.

Sometimes one door closes so that a better one is walked through. Of course, to Eliza, who always tried to appear positive for her daughter, finding her chance for a new life gone up in smoke was almost the last straw. Regrouping and deciding what to do next had her momentarily at a loss, especially when she sees an out of control car sliding toward her. Enter Aiden, a computer geek who has problems of his own. With the Christmas season looming, each has problems that only they could work out. W ...more

I do think this book is as wholesome, as sweet as it comes. There is no cheating, no dark secret, no one gets hurt, no love triangle, it's one big happy Brady Bunch family with lovely beautiful people.

It is a beautifully written book, I enjoyed reading it, but I can not say I will be coming back for more. I like my book a little edgier and have a little more steam. This book is PG, it has kisses and that's it.

I like the author's writing, her characters are vivid, lovable and alive. The dialogues

Loved it! Great start to a new/spin-off series and one that should give us a lot of great stories. Enjoyed the way the author tied in the Hope's Crossing connection. With Aidan always being the hugely successful but mysterious Caine brother, having him close to home again was perfect. He's at a crossroads in his life. Will he slow down and enjoy what's right in front of him???

I definitely recommend this one.
My review for this heartwarming Christmas story will be linked back here at a later date.

Upon getting into Haven Point she sees her new place of business is in flames. Immediately it hits her she is out of a job.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading and absolutely love Snow Angel Cove by RaeAnne Thayne. I was enthralled with Eliza, Aidan, and especially Maddie in Haven Point. This book had captured my attention like a sailboat gliding across the blue waters on a beautiful sunny day. I did not want to stop reading until the end and savored every page of this novel.

RaeAnne Thayne has done it again. Snow Angel Cove is a great book with a wonderful story. I am a big fan of the Hope Crossings series that RaeAnne has written. I am so happy that this new Haven Point series has a connection to all the folks in Hope’s Crossings. It was nice to catch up with some of the folks from there.

This story has it all. You will laugh, cry and read faster to see what is going to happen. It also shows that when one door closes another is about to be open for you. I loved me

I'm not one of those people who knew from birth she was destined to become a writer. I always loved to read and throughout my childhood I could usually be found with a book in my hands. To the disgust of my friends, I even enjoyed creative writing assignments that made them all groan. But I had other dreams besides writing. I wanted to be an actress or a teacher or a lawyer.
