There's no place like Haven Point for the holidays, where the snow conspires to bring two wary hearts together for a Christmas to remember.
It's been two rough years since Andrea Montgomery lost her husband, and all she wants is for her children to enjoy their first Christmas in Haven Point. But then Andie's friend asks a favor—to keep an eye on her brother, Sheriff Marshall Bailey, who's recovering from a hit and run. Andie will do anything for Wyn, even park her own misgivings to check on her grouchy, wounded bear of a brother.
Marshall hates feeling defenseless and resents the protective impulses that Andie brings out in him. But when a blizzard forces them together for the holidays, something in Marshall begins to thaw. Andie's gentle nature is a salve, and her kids' excitement for the holidays makes him forget why he never wanted a family. If only he and Andie can admit what they really want—each other—their Christmas wishes might come true after all.
I received a review copy of this book from the publisher.
Snowfall in Haven Point is a warm, cozy holiday romance that will put you in the Christmas spirit…and make you want to snuggle with your sweetheart in front of a crackling fire.
Andrea, whom I first met in Riverbend Road, makes a very sympathetic heroine, easy to relate to. Marshall’s grumpiness is endearing and irritating by turns, and I love seeing him open up. Andrea’s adorable children and dog provide plenty of the cuteness factor without sliding into saccharine territory; I love their determination to make sure Marshall has a Christmas tree. And I find it refreshing that it’s Marshall, rather than Andrea, who may be in danger; it’s a reversal of the usual trope that works particularly well since Andrea was threatened in the previous book. There’s also a subplot involving a neighbor’s grandchild that adds interest to the story as well as depth to Marshall’s character.
I think you could read Snowfall in Haven Point without having read the first three books in the series, but I do recommend reading Riverbend Road first so you have a better sense of Andrea’s backstory, which explains a lot about her character. Either way, though, if you love a good Christmas romance, Snowfall in Haven Point deserves a spot on your wishlist this holiday.

This sounds wonderful! I loved what we saw of Andrea and Marshall in the previous book and I also really like that it’s not Andrea who’s threatened. I always hate when a character has just constant problems. I’m almost done with the Emily March book and that one has me ready to dive into this one!

This one will go quickly. 🙂 I finished the March book, too, and enjoyed it. But it feels awfully early to be reading holiday books!
I love books with a blizzard setting. This one sounds cute; I’m putting it on my Read over Christmas Break list. 🙂

It would be a good choice, along with Emily March’s Christmas in Eternity Springs.
Ooh… thanks for the rec! I need some good curl-up-and-forget-the-outside-world books this Christmas. Especially if it’s cold and snowy outside. 🙂
This would be a good pick!

This author is already on my look-for-list. I will probably be wanting to read Christmas and winter setting stories starting the end of October. Thanks for pointing this one out.

Sure thing! And I agree – those covers always make me want to read the book.
I love the cover for this book, it looks so winter/christmas-y and cozy! I like how kids and pets can bring a bit of the cuteness factor to a book. Great review!

She didn’t overdo it with the kids and dog, either. Sometimes authors pull those heartstrings a little too obviously, but I thought it was just right in this one.
