Publisher's Summary

“Hunter is a master romance storyteller. Falling Like Snowflakes is charming and fun with a twist of mystery and intrigue. A story that’s sure to endure as a classic reader favorite.” (Rachel Hauck, New York Times best-selling author)

The first book in the Summer Harbor series from best-selling author Denise Hunter!

Speeding north through rural Maine, Eden Martelli wonders how her life came to this - on the run with her mute five-year-old son dozing fitfully in the passenger seat. When a breakdown leaves them stranded in Summer Harbor, Eden has no choice but to stay put through Christmas...even though they have no place to lay their heads.

Beau Callahan is a habitual problem solver - for other people anyway. He left the sheriff’s department to take over his family’s Christmas tree farm, but he’s still haunted by the loss of his parents and struggling to handle his first Christmas alone.

When Eden shows up looking for work just as Beau’s feisty aunt gets out of the hospital, Beau thinks he’s finally caught a break. Eden is competent and dedicated - if a little guarded - and a knockout to boot. But, as he soon finds out, she also comes with a boatload of secrets.

Eden has been through too much to trust her heart to another man, but Beau is impossible to resist, and the feeling seems to be mutual. As Christmas Eve approaches, Eden’s past catches up to her.

Beau will go to the ends of the earth to keep her safe. But who’s going to protect his heart from a woman who can’t seem to trust again?

“Hunter’s fans will want this one.” (Library Journal)

“With her usual deft touch, snappy dialogue, and knack for romantic tension, inspirational romance veteran Hunter will continue to delight romance fans with this first Summer Harbor release.” (Publishers Weekly)

"Hunter blends a fearful tale of fleeing danger and a heartwarming story of trust and second chances. Readers will thrill with a tingle down the spine when they realize what Eden is facing, and they will cheer as Beau fights to prove he’s the man Eden deserves.... The will-they-won’t-they pull will keep readers in suspense to the very end." (Booklist)

“If you enjoy romance blended with suspense, you’re going to love Denise Hunter’s latest novel. Falling Like Snowflakes will make your heart race twice over - from dread of the bad guys and from the joy of watching Beau and Eden fall in love.” (Robin Lee Hatcher, best-selling author)

“Denise Hunter writes the most complex, fascinating, and yummy romances out there! Falling Like Snowflakes has it all: a vulnerable young woman on the run with her child, a hunky hero with the guts and determination to help her, and a rugged setting along the coast of Maine. This is a novel you’ll reread again and again.” (Colleen Coble, USA Today best-selling author)

Love Denise Hunter

“Her own fear held her captive.” This is my second Denise Hunter read, and she is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. Her romances are so good, and so far there has been a little mystery thrown in to keep you interested. I loved how this one took a turn I was not expecting, and I cannot wait to read book two in the series. This is marked as Christian Fiction, but do not put off by that. She does use some Religion in her stories, but they are not overpowering or overdone in my opinion. I really want more people to give her work a chance. I am loving everything so far.

Love love love this one!

This is one of my favorite books! I chose to listen to this audiobook as a reread because I've read the story in print a couple of times and I love it so much, but I had never listened to it before. This is also the first time that I've reread it since I've completed the entire series.

I loved it all over again. In fact, I loved it even more because I noticed little hints and details that meant more to me this time than they did the first time that I read, now that I know the story on all of the characters.

This story features Beau Callahan and Eden Martelli, as well as Eden's son Micah. Eden has shown up in Beau's small town of Summer Harbor, Maine with her young son in tow, and no one knows anything about her except that she needs a job and that she is fiercely protective of her child. Beau needs some help around the house and ends up employing her. While the two have a very slow-burning romance that buds, the story of why Eden is on the run slowly unfolds.

This is very much a story of family relationships-with a great, great setting. The Callahan Brothers are awesome and I loved getting to know them and their relationship to the town. Beau, in particular, is very easy to connect with as a character because he has such a good heart. He does find himself in quite a predicament where his romantic feelings are concerned, and only part of this is because Eden has a difficult time trusting other people. Eden is more guarded than Beau is, but as her story unfolds, it is understandable why this is so.

I loved listening to this story for my reread. I wish some of the more suspenseful parts and some of the more emotional conversations and reveals had been more emotive in terms of the narration, but I would absolutely listen to this one again in a heartbeat. It's one of my forever-favorites.

Absolutely lovely

Lovely story, with good spiritual lessons, and the narrator-ship was good, the only problem was the epilogue chapter was in both chapter 42 and 43. But it was an enjoyable listen

A magical and beautiful story

Was recommended to this author by friend if you weeks ago, was not sure where to start as I have never read anything by her before, when I browsed Audible, this series caught my eye so I decided I would buy them all. The book kept me in gauge and the characters were really brought to life with the fantastic narration. This was also a narrator I had never heard before and I found her fantastic and very easy to listen to. I am not going to say any more about the book itself because if I do, I will be in danger of giving away spoilers. This was a great start to a fantastic series.
