Recommended Christmas Reads: Christmas in Cold Creek by RaeAnne Thayne

AdventSquare8

She claimed to be a waitress and a single mother, but Rebecca Parsons doesn’t look like any hash-slinger Pine Gulch Police Chief Trace Bowman has ever seen. And she doesn’t seem particularly maternal toward her little girl, either. Still, one look in her vulnerable green eyes and his protective instincts go into overdrive. Attention from local law enforcement is the last thing Becca needs. She’ll do anything to protect her little sister Gabi from their con-artist mother, even lie about their identities. When Trace shows up at their house carrying a Christmas tree and stirring desires she can’t afford to indulge, she longs to surrender to the magic of the season with him. But Becca’s past is catching up–“fast.” Can her sexy police chief perform a Christmas miracle?

Christmas in Cold Creek by RaeAnne Thayne

This book was released as part of RaeAnne Thayne’s Montana-set Cold Creek series last year, and was the first book I had read by this author. Though it is in a series, it worked perfectly on its own, and I really enjoyed it.

Thayne proves it’s possible to write Christmas romances without making them too cheesy. It has a little touch of suspense, which I thought really added to the story. It is also a ‘sweet’ romance (nothing too sexual!), but I think even those who expect more spicy scenes will be satisfied with this one.

Thayne is great with the characterisation, and captures the small town atmosphere wonderfully (coming from someone who has only ever lived in cities!). I remember sitting next to the Christmas tree a few days before the big event last year, reading this, and thinking it was a perfect Christmas romance.
