Evergreen Springs by RaeAnne Thayne--A Review


Celebrate the magic of Christmas in Haven Point with New York Times bestselling author RaeAnne Thayne, where hope, home, and happily-ever-after are as close as your holiday stocking...

Christmas is the last thing Cole Barrett is thinking about this year. He's barely hanging on trying to care for his two grieving children since his ex-wife died in a tragic accident. For the reclusive Cole, this is no time for gift-giving and celebration—and certainly not for a sunny-natured optimist to blow into his screwed-up life.

In the years since her cancer treatments, physician Devin Shaw has researched the curative powers of Lake Haven's mineral waters. Unfortunately, the hot springs are on Barrett property, forcing Devin to strike a bargain with the ranch's attractively gruff owner: she'll give Cole's children the magical Christmas they deserve, and Cole will allow her patients access to the springs. But can she work her holiday magic to heal the Barrett family's battered hearts—and her own?


Evergreen Springs by RaeAnne Thayne was a magical Christmas read.   Both main characters, Cole Barrett and Devin Shaw, have their share of painful history and some of which they have no desire to share.    But Devin is resourceful and chooses to see the best in others...her neighbors, her patients, the sexy brother of her  pregnant patient Trisha.   She sees the best in the behavior's of Cole's children, shy Ty and aggressive little Jasmine.  

The setting is clearly Christmas in the beautiful mountains....the conflict finding love and being denied because someone doesn't feel good enough for the fair doctor.   It's an enjoyable read, lots of hope and the magic of Christmas and it is wonderfully clean romance at its best.

I rated this Christmas read 5 Winks!
