Book Review ~ Falling Like Snowflakes by Denise Hunter ~ 12/21/17

Eden Martelli is too busy fleeing the clutches of danger to realize she’s running straight into the arms of a new love.

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

My Thoughts:
I'm reading this series a bit backward!
I started with Book 3 of the series and then got my hands on Books 1 & 2.
I wanted a nice, wintery read and this did not disappoint.  It was full of holiday traditions and festivities all the way from Thanksgiving to New Year's Day.
Beau was an amazing hero and Eden (or should I say Kate) was a great damsel in distress.  Even though she was a damsel in distress, she was determined to live her own life and be free of the evil that was chasing her and her son Micah (Jack).
I wish I had read this series in the proper order.  I would have enjoyed the 3rd book of the series even more if I had.
Book 2 is on my shelf and I'm looking forward to delving in sometime soon!  I can't wait to read Zac's story :)

  1. I agree that reading them in order would have made them more interesting, but sounds like you still enjoyed them. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
