"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

I love how love is displayed here, Eden feels like she is beyond love, beyond freedom, but she just actually needs to realize what those two things truly are. I love how she is strong yet vulnerable because it makes her seem more alive. She runs and runs and even when she gets what she wanted; her freedom, she still feels empty and it's because she doesn't want to love and because she doesn't give it all to God.

While the series of Callahan brothers is an easy read they are also all exact replicas of each other. Abby, Lucy, Eden, Paige are all women with abandonment issues regarding their fathers who fall for a Callahan man (Ryan, Zac, Beau and Riley respectively), rebuffed, in love and then flee, realize what they were missing, only to meet up again in a lackluster end with religious bits shoved in. The carbon copy similarities were disappointing in what could have been a good read but the author fails to do little but repeat the same story line in the series but with a different character's name. Story is also slow and repetitive. Overuse of 'scent of spicy buffalo wings', all the women repeatedly smell like flowers, men repeatedly smell like the woods and their issues are stuck in a loop taking up large sections of the story not moving forward, just spinning in circles. Could have been better than it was.
