ABOUT THIS BOOK
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?
SEASON OF WONDER by RaeAnne Thayne is a heartwarming tale of finding your place in this world and letting go of the past.
Dani Capelli has moved to the small town of Haven Point with her two daughters and she hopes that it will give them everything they need. A vet, Dani hopes to buy the practice where she is working for the next year and all she wants is a happy, cosy life for her family. But her eldest daughter doesn't seem to be settling well and their handsome next-door neighbour, who happens to be a cop, seems a little too interested in their lives. And no matter how much Dani may like him, the last thing she needs is a cop who may discover her secret from the past.
With a stunning setting and a community of loveable characters, SEASON OF WONDER by RaeAnne Thayne comes alive in your hands as you turn the page. Dani is a great character who is tough and strong for her family and someone who you will care for immediately. I desperately wanted Dani to open up to Ruben but as we learn more about their story, her motives become clearer.
There is family, friendship, and the importance of letting go of the past and forgiveness throughout SEASON OF WONDER, and that extra element of magic that is synonymous with RaeAnne Thayne's books. A must-read for fans of festive reads with added heart.
I'm not one of those people who knew from birth she was destined to become a writer. I always loved to read and throughout my childhood I could usually be found with a book in my hands. To the disgust of my friends, I even enjoyed creative writing assignments that made them all groan. But I had other dreams besides writing. I wanted to be an actress or a teacher or a lawyer.
Life took a different turn for me, though, when my mother made me take a journalism elective in high school (thanks, Mom!). I knew the first day that this was where I belonged.
After I graduated from college in journalism, I took a job at the local daily newspaper and I reveled in the challenge and the diversity of it. One day I could be interviewing the latest country music star, the next day I was writing about local motorcycle gangs or interviewing an award-winning scientist.
Through it all -- through the natural progression of my career from reporter to editor -- I wrote stories in my head. Not just any stories, either, but romances, the kind of books I have devoured since junior high school, with tales about real people going through the trials and tribulations of life until they find deep and lasting love.
I had no idea how to put these people on paper, but knew I had to try -- their stories were too compelling for me to ignore. I sold my first book in 1995 and now, more than 30 books later, I've come to love everything about writing, from the click of the computer keys under my fingers to the "that's-it!" feeling I get when a story is flowing.
I write full-time now (well, as full-time as I can manage juggling my kids!) amid the raw beauty of the northern Utah mountains.
Even though I might not have dreamed of being a writer when I was younger, now I simply can't imagine my life any other way.
