Snowfall on Haven Point by RaeAnne Thayne

Andrea is perfectly happy with her new life in Haven Point.  She has a nice house, her children are happy, she's friends with most in the community and life is good.  She's widowed and she's survived a stalker and she's fine on her own.  She misses her husband but she's not looking for a new man.  She sure never expected to find one next door...

HQN Books and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published September 27th.

When she gets a call from her neighbor about the fact that her brother is now staying at the house because his leg has been badly broken, she sympathizes.  It doesn't take long until she's committed to taking him some meals and checking on to see if he's taking his medicine or needs anything else.  She's not happy about it, but she's a kind a person.  It appears he's not...

He's crabby, grouchy and in a bad mood generally.  Someone set him up and tried to kill him.  He was just lucky he jumped fast enough to the side.  He knows it had to be someone from his department but who could it be?  Just like who could have stolen money from the evidence room?  He's busy worrying about that and doesn't need a busybody over at his door or bringing him food.  The food tastes good but he could always order take out or eat something out of the refrigerator.  She won't go away, though.  And then he meets her kids.

This is a tale of two people who are guarding their hearts and aren't interested in a new relationship.  That's always when you find someone.

She tells him he's a grouch, feeds him anyway, and her children want to do up a Christmas tree for him.  He tries to tell them no but they are so excited he can't.  They make him homemade ornaments to go with the ones his owned.  It does brighten his house and even his spirits.

Besides the work problems, he has another one to overcome.  The young man living with his grandparents next door is evidently his from a one night fling long ago.  He's afraid to tell the boy but Andrea tells him he must.

It's hard journey this Christmas season but all turns out well.  This is very pleasant read to get you ready for your Christmas season this year.
