REVIEW of Season of Wonder by RaeAnne Thayne

 Kindle Edition, 384 pages
Expected publication: September 25th 2018 by HQN Books

He’s giving her children a season of wonder…

Dani Capelli seized a chance to start over in a small town with her daughters. Now, facing her first Christmas in Haven Point, she wonders if leaving New York was a mistake. Dani loves working alongside veterinarian Dr. Morales, but her two children aren’t adjusting to small-town life. And then there’s Dr. Morales’s son, Ruben—Dani’s next-door neighbor. Gorgeous, muscled and dependable, the deputy sheriff is everything she secretly craves and can’t bear to risk loving…and losing.

Ruben never pictured himself falling for a big-city woman like Dani. But beneath her prickly facade, she’s caring and softhearted and she needs all the love and protection he can give. When Dani’s teenage daughter starts acting out, Ruben draws on family traditions to show the girls just how magical a Haven Point Christmas can be. But can he convince Dani that she’s found a home for the holidays—and forever—in his arms?

My Thoughts…

I found myself reading, turning pages, and finishing chapters while putting off all the rest of the chores that I was supposed to be doing.      Maybe it helped that it was a rainy gloomy day but I could not stop reading about Dani and Ruben.   

Dani’s children were amazing.   The attitude of the teenager, the wanting to please of the youngest were so real to how my children were that I could picture myself as a single mom trying to handle the kids, a job, and now a man that I can’t stop thinking about.    

Ruben…sigh… he was amazing.   He won my heart when he didn’t push the girls to talk to him; he talked to them as adults and didn’t expect more from them than what a child can give.     He knew that Dani and the girls were a family and if he wanted to be in any of their lives he had to be in all of their lives.      He treated Dani with respect but also as a woman, he showed her he was attracted to her, gave her space when she needed it, and accepted what she was able to give.  
RaeAnne Thayne is an author that I always enjoy and Season of Wonder is no exception.    I recommend picking up this easy, light, and fun book.    It does not have to be read with the rest of the series as it is definitely a stand-alone book.
