Riding in a bus in the thickly falling snow, Eden Davis wonders how it ever came to this--fleeing under cover of night with young Micah sleeping fitfully in the seat beside her. When a winter storm strands them in Summer Harbor, Maine, Eden wonders if what might have been the end could be a new beginning.
Beau Callahan is a habitual problem-solver. He's recently left his job with the sheriff's department to take over the family Christmas tree farm to save it from insolvency. But he's flummoxed. During the busiest season of the year, he's shorthanded. Then Eden shows up looking for work, and Beau believes he's been rescued. Competent, smart, and beautiful, Eden's also guarded and quiet. He soon figures out she comes with a boatload of secrets. But Beau can't seem to help himself from falling for her.
As Christmas Eve approaches, Beau discovers he'll do anything to keep Eden safe. But who's going to protect his heart from a woman who can't seem to trust again?
Denise Hunter is one of my favorite Christian Fiction authors. I'm always on the lookout for the next new book from her. I've come to know exactly what I'm going to get from a Denise Hunter book and I am never disappointed.
Eden is on the run. We get bits and pieces of her story as things go along- in flashbacks mostly. Meanwhile Eden is trying to find work, hide her secrets and keep her son safe. It's a big burden to carry. Eden is a strong woman, afraid of the danger she's in, but not afraid to do what it takes to keep her son and herself safe. Eden doesn't trust though, understandably, which makes it really hard for the people who are trying to help and love her.
I liked Beau from the very beginning. He is protective and strong. He works hard and loves his family. He is everything a male hero lead should be. Beau is also a patient man and he works hard to help Eden, even when he doesn't understand.
This book was so easy to settle into. I read through it quickly and it ended before I was ready. I loved it and I cannot wait to see what comes next for the Callahan brothers! Today is release day for "Falling Like Snowflakes" so go pick up your copy today!
This is a clean romance. Christian Fiction. No swearing or sexual content. There is some mild violence. My thanks to the publisher, Thomas Nelson, for providing a copy of this book for review.
