Publisher's Summary

In the town of Silver Bells, there’s always a feeling of Christmas in the air.... Let love - and RaeAnne Thayne - melt your heart this holiday season!

This New Year will bring widowed nurse Abigail Powell a fresh start in a different city. Excited about the chance to create an unforgettable Christmas for her young son in picturesque Silver Bells, Colorado, Abby has been hired to take care of her dear friend’s recuperating grandmother. But sprightly senior Winnie insists she doesn’t need looking after. What she does need is help decorating her historic mansion, Holiday House, for a seasonal town fundraiser. Abby warms to the festive task, but she’ll have to contend with her own personal Grinch: Winnie’s prickly grandson, Ethan Lancaster.

Ethan Lancaster is good at a lot of things. Relationships surely aren’t one of them. His ex-fiancée convinced Ethan he was incapable of love, and he believes her…up until the moment he impulsively kisses Abby. What is it about this vibrant woman and her sweet son that knocks his world off-kilter? He knows they’re leaving town after Christmas. He just didn’t expect they’d be taking a little of his heart with them. But as he and Abby work together on the magical Holiday House through the record cold weather, visions of a different future dance in his head…one filled with warmth, love and a new beginning for them both.

Don't miss Thayne's next release, The Path to Sunshine Cove: three love stories in one with the emotional pull of Debbie Macomber, Barbara Delinsky and Susan Wiggs!

Started out slow

I thought I would return it because I couldn’t get into it, but then it got good. I was rather disappointed with the ending however since it was just left hanging. Didn’t even hear Christopher’s take on Christmas and all the gifts.

Typical Christmas read

I don't know why I always expect more from a book that falls into the romance category than it can possibly deliver despite high star ratings, but I guess I'm a sucker for a once a year romance, especially if it also delivers a Christmas story.

Christmas at Holiday House has all the elements of a romance, all the elements of a Hallmark movie. Abby, the nearly perfect single mom, Ethan, the predictably unlovable who becomes also perfect, and Lucy, the best friend with secrets, create the main characters in a cast that propels people who have lost the ability to love into experiences that bring love back into their lives. Add in the required amount of wealth, a great mansion, and a tidy little Colorado town, and you have Christmas at Holiday House.

I can't say I recommend this, especially if (like me) romance isn't really your genre, but it was a fun holiday read, which was just what I needed at the end of 2020!

Beautiful Christmas Story

I was worried this would be heavily like a Hallmark movie, I mean the setting was very Hallmark which I loved but the story line was very good. Not a cookie cutter romance, I enjoyed the main story line with Abby and her adorable son with the Grandmother of Abby's college roommate. I loved how the characters interacted and the side romance story. Lots of moving parts without over doing it. Over all this was a really good book, it was my first of RaeAnne Thayne and I am excited to read more from her.

Nice. Well read.

Story good. Child centric at times. Many forced attempts at inclusiveness. That added a shallow quality. If you want a gay character add one in earnest don’t skate around the perimeter. It is 2020 after all not 1989. We can handle it.
