#Review ~ Sugar Pine Trail by RaeAnne Thayne ~ @raeannethayne

Are you a huge fan of Christmas books like me? Well if you are I have an awesome book that you have to grab now! It's Sugar Pine Trail by RaeAnne Thayne. I love all of RaeAnne Thayne's books because she is just fabulous, but her Christmas books always leave me with that special warm heart feeling. 

Julia Winston is s sweet, caring lady that has a job she loves as librarian of the Haven Point Library. She has recently rented out the apartment in the upstairs of her Victorian home to her friend's brother-in-law, Jamie Caine. Jamie is waiting for the finishing touches of his new condo so he has let his sister-in-law find him a place to rent for a short time. Jamie is busy flying his family, and other Caine Tech employees to meetings and holiday events with family. 

Julia discovers two little boys that are spending a lot of time in the library. She feels that something isn't quite right and she discovers these two little guys are in need of a home and love for the holidays. I don't want to tell you too much about this because it really is quite a story. I loved how Julia steps up and offers to care for these adorable little boys so they can be together. 
Davy and Clint are sweet little boys who have been through a lot and do a great job looking out for each other. 

The boys play a big role in Jamie and Julia getting to know each other better and spend way more time together. It was a great pleasure to watch these four interact together. Jamie is awesome with the boys and turns out to be a huge help to Julia. Julia finds herself falling for those sweet little boys and her handsome tenant. This is one of those books that you very well may want to grab the Kleenex box. There are a few moments where I needed to wipe my eyes to continue reading. This is one of those books that really touched the heart. I laughed, I cried, and I sat on the edge of my seat a time or two wondering how they were going to handle one situation or another. 

RaeAnne Thayne does such a fabulous job with her small town romance stories that it truly feels like visiting with friends, old and new. Sugar Pine Trail makes for a wonderful holiday trip to Haven Point. It was so great to catch up with everyone and see what has been happening in their lives since my last visit. It was nice to see everyone gathering for Thanksgiving and then again for Christmas. Snow Angel Cove is just the perfect place to celebrate Christmas. 

This is part of the Have Point Series however it will stand on it's own just fine. Each book stands on it's own just fine, however if you have read the previous books in the series you'll enjoy each one even more.

If you love Christmas books as much as I do then you really have to grab this one. I don't know if it can possibly get any better than a Christmas book from RaeAnne Thayne. 

I was given the opportunity to read this incredible story and it has been my pleasure to share my thoughts with you.

Fans of the wildly popular Haven Point series won’t want to miss SUGAR PINE TRAIL, the latest novel from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author RaeAnne Thayne. In this heartwarming holiday romance, unexpected attraction between two polar opposites might just make for the best match yet.

Haven Point librarian Julia Winston has spent most of her life taking care of other people. Now she’s 32 years old and feeling restless for the first time, banging around a big empty house with no one to share it with. In an effort to break free from her life of quiet complacency, Julia finds herself making a list of all the things she wants to do while she still has the chance—including getting a puppy, learning to ski, and kissing someone under the mistletoe. That someone, however, is most certainly not Jamie Caine, a military pilot who is temporarily renting a room in Julia’s home. Wary of Jamie’s blinding good looks and his reputation as the town’s resident heartbreaker, Julia puts up all her charm defenses, while the handsome pilot tries his best to steer clear of his mousy landlady (who, he has to admit, has some pretty stunning eyes).

But when Julia suddenly finds herself taking care of two young brothers in need, she and Jamie will come together to make an unforgettable holiday for the boys. Along the way, Jamie will learn that Julia has more spunk than she lets on, and Julia will realize that Jamie has more depth than she gave him credit for. Together, this unlikely pair will discover they have more in common than they ever imagined—all while fighting a powerful attraction that becomes more and more difficult to deny.

Set against a backdrop of mistletoe, lakeside lights, and Haven Point’s stunning snowy mountains, SUGAR PINE TRAIL makes for perfect winter reading this holiday season.

About the Author: 
RaeAnne ThayneNew York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author RaeAnne Thayne loves words. Her love affair started as soon as she learned to read, when she used to devour anything she could get her hands on: cereal boxes, encyclopedias, the phone book, you name it! She loves the way words sound, the way they look on the page, and the amazing way they can be jumbled together in so many combinations to tell a story. 

Her love of reading and writing those words led her to a fifteen-year career in journalism as a newspaper reporter and editor.

Through it all, she dreamed of writing the kind of stories she loved best. She sold her first book in 1995 and since then she’s published more than 40 titles. Her books have won many honors, including three RITA® Award nominations from the Romance Writers of America and a Career Achievement Award from RT Book Reviews. 

RaeAnne finds inspiration in the rugged northern Utah mountains, where she lives with her hero of a husband and their children. She loves to hear from readers and can be reached through her website at
