I like to tell people I go so often because I’m secretly investigating her. Her coffee is too addictive to be legal.

5 - "This might turn out to be the best Christmas ever." Stars!

I have been a huge fan of Annie’s since her original series Hero’s Welcome started hitting e-readers, and whilst still a firm favourite with this reader, I have to say that the Sweetwater Springs series has surpassed it now in regards to writing and story-telling excellence. Snowfall on Cedar Trail is single mother; Halona Locklear and town Sheriff; Alex Baker’s story, and wowza just be warned you’ll need tissues for this one.

It's the most magical time of the year... when the Christmas books start hitting my Kindle!

I have fallen in love with the residents of Sweetwater Springs over the previous books, and it was wonderful to return.

This installment is a wonderful single-mum-and-brother's-best-friend tale, yet it is so much more.

This story was a lot more emotional to me than the previous installments. We were introduced to our lovelies Alex and Halona in book 2, and it w

I was so looking forward to this one. This is why I love series so much, you get to know the characters and kinda figure out who's going to end up with who. Not only that we already knew that Theo wasn't talking so we had that to look forward too.

I really loved Halona and Alex together. They just worked. It might have taken them a bit to figure that out but they did. Alex worked harder on them not having a relation

There's lot of things that the backcover doesn't tell about this book so I won't summarize the story this time because I don't want to spoil everything. But all these details made for quite an interesting book and explain why Halona and Alex never pursued a relationship before, despite their mutual attraction. This book is my favorite of the series so far because:

-At page 27, I was already in love with the hero. His protective (but never overbearing) attitude toward not only Halona but the peopl

This was such a wonderful addition to the Sweetwater Springs series! I've been anxiously awaiting this book since I finished Springtime at Hope Cottage and it was definitely worth the wait!

I knew I was in for a treat as soon as I opened the beautiful cover of this book. I loved Halona's character, she is strong but sensitive. It is Christmas in Sweetwater Springs and the town is gearing up for the holidays and a wedding. Almost all of the characters have secrets that could prove to ruin their lives if they let them. I loved seeing Halona, her little boy Theo, and Alex the local chief of police work through it all for an amazing ending. Love this authors descriptive writing style. ...more

Annie Rains writes a heartwarming story for police chief Alex Baker and single mom Halona Locklear. Snowfall on Cedar Trial is a captivating friends to lovers romance which takes place during the holiday season.
Alex Baker has been attracted to his best friend’s sister for ages. He makes excuses to run into her at the local coffee spot or at her florist shop. Alex has been preoccupied with solving his father’s murder—it haunts him during this time of the year. He’s a complex character-he’s kind

What a lovely, feel-good, contemporary romance to kick off my 2019 holiday reading. This was my first novel by Annie Rains but it won't be the last. I enjoyed getting to know the members of the Sweetwater Springs community, especially police chief Alex, flower shop owner Halona, and her sweet, emotionally troubled young son, Theo. Best friend's younger sister/older brother is one of my favorite tropes and Rains gave me one that captured my heart. All three of these main characters are dealing wi ...more

Lately her son, Theo, was having a tough time at school and Halona was becoming really worried about what more she could be doing. Theo was surrounded by family and friends who loved him and an uncle who doted on him but he needed more, which is why when Halona he ...more

This is such a wonderful addition to the Sweetwater Springs series. I love Halona & Alex both & was so excited to get their story. We find out they have somewhat of a rocky past from years ago in book 2 of the series so it was nice to get more information on what happened in this book. This story, like all the others in the series flowed very well. I also enjoyed catching up with Kaitlyn & Mitchell (from book 1) & Halona's brother Tucker & his wife Josie (book 2). I also love ...more

I absolutely loved this addition to the Sweetwater Springs series! In Springtime at Hope Cottage (book 2 of the series), we were introduced to both Alex and Halona and so I loved starting this book already having some great background information on both of the main characters. The characters were well developed and likable, the plot was interesting, and I adore Annie Rain's writing style. This was a wonderful feel good book about two great characters, set in a wonderful town, and I can't wait f ...more

Thank you Forever and Grand Central for putting me in the holiday spirit!

My first holiday read of the season is in the books and I’m ready for more!

Reading Snowfall on Cedar Trail put a big smile on my face and gave me all the Christmas-y vibes. I’m so glad to be back in Sweetwater Springs! This is the third book in the series (and a couple of novellas tucked in that I want to read!) and I love each and every book.

This was a great book to get into the spirit of the season. Halona is a single mother of a boy who is selectively mute. He hasn't talked since just after his Dad passed away. The story of how his father passed and leading up to it, are not as they appear. Alex, the chief of police is a very by the book kind of guy. In the search for justice of his own father's death, he has become a little jaded.

When he ends up volunteering in the mentor match program he gets picked to mentor Theo, Halona's son

I was under the impression that I had read a book from this series before so imagine my surprise when I learned that I have never even read this author before. I’ve been missing out!

This book was right up my alley. When the weather turns colder and the sun goes down earlier I find myself craving the comfort of a small-town romance with characters who feel very best version of real. This book and these characters firmly fall in that category.

Halona and Alex’s story touched on some very emotiona

Halona has lived in Sweetwater Springs for years – and now with her young son reeling (and not talking) after the death of his father, she feels more protective than ever of him. Vowing to swear off men, dating and above all the attraction that she’s had for years to the town’s police chief and older brother’s best friend Alex, she’s not too happy that he and Theo get on so well. And perhaps she’s still angry with Alex for arresting her then ex-husband for abuse, when she’s never told anyone the ...more

Once again, Annie Rains has created a romance that makes me want to drive away from my busy suburban neighborhood and straight to the small town of Sweetwater Springs! The romance in this book was years in the making, with unrequited love and second chance romance bundled together. There was also a case of anxiety in a child, which I thought was a really interesting and unique element to the story. The heroine's son has selective mutism, and I enjoyed educating myself about that disorder through ...more

Over the past year I’ve become a huge Annie Rains fangirl with her Sweetwater Springs series. I’ve read all of the books and novellas and will now patiently be awaiting the next books about this adorable small town. (And by patiently I mean checking her website for release dates and synopses every few days.)

I’m pretty sure each book that comes out becomes my new favorite, but I can honestly say I fell in love with Halona and Alex’s story. They were minor characters in the last two novels since A

There’s just something so appealing about a rugged, protective, small town police chief who doesn’t understand his hotness! Alex Baker has had quite the crush on single mom and flower shop owner Halona Locklear, going back to way before he married her now late ex-husband. He’s never acted on it until now.
Halona is drawn to Alex, too, but between her shop and her sweet little boy, Theo, she has a lot to handle. And while Alex knows something that Halona’s family and other friends do not about her
