“Hunter is a master romance storyteller. Falling Like Snowflakes is charming and fun with a twist of mystery and intrigue. A story that’s sure to endure as a classic reader favorite.” —Rachel Hauck, New York Times bestselling author

The first book in the Summer Harbor series from bestselling author Denise Hunter!

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?

“Hunter’s fans will want this one.” —Library Journal

“With her usual deft touch, snappy dialogue, and knack for romantic tension, inspirational romance veteran Hunter will continue to delight romance fans with this first Summer Harbor release.” —Publishers Weekly

"Hunter blends a fearful tale of fleeing danger and a heartwarming story of trust and second chances. Readers will thrill with a tingle down the spine when they realize what Eden is facing, and they will cheer as Beau fights to prove he’s the man Eden deserves . . . The will-they-won’t-they pull will keep readers in suspense to the very end." —Booklist

“If you enjoy romance blended with suspense, you’re going to love Denise Hunter’s latest novel. Falling Like Snowflakes will make your heart race twice over—from dread of the bad guys and from the joy of watching Beau and Eden fall in love.” —Robin Lee Hatcher, bestselling author

“Denise Hunter writes the most complex, fascinating, and yummy romances out there! Falling Like Snowflakes has it all: a vulnerable young woman on the run with her child, a hunky hero with the guts and determination to help her, and a rugged setting along the coast of Maine. This is a novel you’ll reread again and again.” —Colleen Coble, USA Today bestselling author

“A handful of authors dominate my must-read list, and Denise Hunter is right at the top. Falling Like Snowflakes is a taut romantic thriller that will warm you to the core.” —Julie Lessman, award-winning author

Falling Like Snowflakes is a story of letting go, finding home, and discovering who you really are. It’s a story that highlights the importance of community and faith within a romance that will warm your heart. You’ll discover winter in Maine—and find yourself ready to vacation there when the snowflakes fall. And maybe along the journey, you’ll discover the freedom of letting go and trusting God.” —Cara Putman, award-winning author

Review by Brittany at the Books and Biscuits Blog
Overall Rating
Falling Like Snowflakes kicks off Ms. Hunter’s most recent series based in Summer Harbor, Maine. Beau Callahan is the quintessential law enforcement officer, until his father’s death leads him to take over the family’s Christmas tree farm. When Eden Martelli and her five-year-old son come to the town, with few resources and even less of a back story, Beau’s innate senses honed in the Summer Harbor sheriff’s office kick into high gear. Eden’s short-lived life on the run leads her to the Callahan’s door, where she finds herself as the temporary caregiver of Beau’s aunt and the family’s home. After years of abuse, Eden rediscovers herself and the peace of the Christmas season among the Callahan family and their neighbors. However, her past soon comes knocking, forcing Eden to choose between finally trusting Beau or losing everything she holds dear.

Fans of Ms. Hunter’s earlier works, especially Married ‘til Monday, will definitely recognize the Callahan family, their Christmas tree farm, and the town of Summer Harbor. In addition, the Summer Harbor series offers additional connections between characters and locations included in Colleen Coble’s Sunset Cove series. It’s wonderful to see evidence of the authors’ friendship in their novels!

Overall, I really enjoyed reading Falling Like Snowflakes. While my husband would claim that the general premise on the back cover sounds like a Hallmark movie, I thought that Ms. Hunter did an excellent job of creating complex characters, an intriguing plot, and a captivating town filled with unlimited possibilities for future novels. Though I am not typically a fan of novels that incorporate themes related to domestic abuse and violent relationships, I thought that Ms. Hunter did a masterful job of presenting it as part of the story’s conflict. After reading, Falling Like Snowflakes, I am definitely looking forward to future novels in this series, including The Goodbye Bride (March 2016).
