Fairhaven, Washington Series Book 3
Annie Romano has made a few errors in judgment during her young life. She regrets never telling an old friend what he meant to her before he left for college. Annie also regrets bad choices in her own college days, although she doesn't regret Emma, her daughter. After seven years of being gone she has now returned to her hometown, Fairhaven, Washington. God blesses her with an unexpected job and a home to live in when her friend needs someone to move in and take care of her, so her grandson can go back to his world of climbing the career ladder without worrying about his grandma.
Alex Jameson took two weeks vacation to come and get things settled with his grandma after she has a heart attack. She's the only family he has left but his career is in California, not Washington. His old friend Annie is there to take care of his grandma and he can go back to work after Thanksgiving. Or can he? As his life starts unraveling, Alex sees that he's left much behind to chase his dreams, what will he choose in the end?
The Bayside Treasure friends, a group of four older women live in Fairhaven and do their part as matchmakers. Alex and Annie both struggle with the past invading the future. Losing loved ones or watching them walk away have caused them to falter in their faith at times and make assumptions that the past will only keep repeating itself. Can they put their trust in God and let Him guide their futures? These books are pretty much stand alone, they just take place in the same town and people. Seeking His Love and A Man to Trust are the first two books.
Patti JoGeorgiaAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A delightful story!February 4, 2013Patti JoGeorgiaAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I thoroughly enjoyed reading Snowflake Sweethearts, by Author Carrie Turansky. The characters were very believable and the storyline never became dull. In fact, during one part of the story I realized my heart was pounding because the author described a scene so realistically! I highly recommend Snowflake Sweethearts by Carrie Turansky, and look forward to reading more books by this wonderful author.
sherrijingaGeorgiaAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great story and great writing!December 31, 2012sherrijingaGeorgiaAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Snowflake Sweethearts was the first of Carrie Turansky's books I've read and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Annie Romano, the heroine, has a little girl to provide for so she returns to her hometown to start over where it's safe. She puts her plans and her life on hold to help care for an older woman and that's where the adventure begins. Sometimes it's the bumps in the road that steer us toward the right path and give us a chance to examine our hearts and motives. That's exactly what happens to Annie in Snowflake Sweethearts. It's what happens to Alex Jameson, too, when his heart opens to Annie. Carrie's characters deal with real-life problems. They may not always make the right choices all the time but supporting characters lead the way and gently influence their decisions. Carrie's sweet heart shines through in her writing and I can't wait to read more of her books.
ValerieBC, CanadaAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Sweet Christmas ReadDecember 17, 2012ValerieBC, CanadaAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Annie Romano returns to Fairhaven, Washington, to raise her 5-year-old daughter. She's starting a business as a personal chef, but it's taking time and effort to build a clientele and she finds she needs another job to make ends meet for Emma. Back in high school she worked part time at Jameson's Bakery, so she stops in there to see the owner, her elderly friend, Irene, and ask for a job. It's clear Irene can't afford another employee, though, and before the conversation gets going too far, Irene has a heart attack on the spot.
Annie has no choice but to call Irene's grandson, Alex, who lives in San Francisco. Annie had a secret crush on Alex back in the day, and she really doesn't want to see him again-not with Emma, the proof of some poor choices she's made. But Alex is focused on his grandmother and offers Annie a job as a live in caretaker and chef for Irene. Annie is desperate (and loves both Irene and Alex) so agrees.
Torn between needing to return to SF and find out if the rumors about hotel mergers are true-and what affect they'd have on his job-and his desire to care for his grandmother, Alex lingers in Fairhaven and begins to see Annie for who she is. But it takes a little girl who craves a daddy and some matchmaking from Irene and her friends to bring these matters of the heart to the forefront.
Is this not a gorgeous cover for a Christmas romance novel? Every time I saw this cover I knew I wanted to read this book. I also love the title, Snowflake Sweethearts, so when the author offered a few giveaways on her Facebook page, I popped my name on the list and was delighted to win a digital copy.
I fully expected to enjoy this novel, and I did. What I didn't expect was to read it all in one sitting, but once I'd opened the file, I just sort of kept going. It's not that the story was riveting in a suspenseful way, just that the warm emotions evoked first by the cover were equally present in the novel. If you're looking for a sweet Christmas read, I recommend this book.
