#Review ~ Season of Wonder By RaeAnne Thayne ~ @raeannethayne @SarahBurningham
I LOVE Christmas themed books. I Love, love, love them and I positively adorable all of RaeAnne Thayne's books. So I always get really excited this time of year when I see that RaeAnne has a new book coming out and WOO HOO! It is a Christmas theme book. Let me tell you my excitement was well placed, Season of Wonder is an incredible story. You may want to grab the Kleenex box before settling in to read this story. I know I shed a few tears along the way.
Dani Capelli has not had an easy life. This lady has been through the mill, dusted herself off, been through the mill again, and is now struggling to make a much better life for her and her two adorable daughters. Dani is a strong, independent, single Mom, with a new career on the line. A new place for a new start is exactly what she and her daughters need and Haven Point seems like the perfect place to find that new, better life. They are all in for a few surprises.
Deputy Sheriff Ruben Morales lives next door to Dani and her girls. Ruben is one of those good guys that I know I would want in my corner. He is the very epitome of what a good guy is. He's sweet, kind, caring, good with Dani's Daughters, knows how to keep law and order, and is really good at making things right for everyone.
Dani and Ruben are a little hesitant of each other at first. Their relationship starts out kind in that "iffy" mode. The attraction is certainly there and those bits of fireworks that started from frustration suddenly turn into smoldering bits of passion. I really enjoyed watching these two to get to know each other. Not only was the romance between Dani and Ruben interesting, but it was also fun to see how these two adults and two children quickly formed a "family" before they even realized what was happening.
Ms. Thayne has created yet another fabulous story that is entertaining, with the perfect amount of drama, friendships, family relationships, romance, with a touch of mystery. There are a few points that I found myself dabbing at tears, others I was holding my breath waiting to see what was going to be revealed next, and then those oh so sweet moments that may have had a tear or two of joy in my eyes as well. Overall, Season of Wonderful is a prime example of RaeAnne Thayne's extreme talent. I just adore every book this talented lady writes. I can't wait to see what she might have in store for us very lucky readers next.
I was given the opportunity to read this incredible story and it has been my great pleasure to share my thoughts with you.

About Season of Wonder:
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 tooattached 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…
