“Falling Like Snowflakes” is Denise Hunter’s newest novel, and is the first book in a new series, leaving Chapel Springs for Summer Harbor, Maine, but keeping characters from her previous series and adding characters from Colleen Coble’s latest series. This is complicated, but the book also works beautifully as a stand-alone.
Eden Martelli and her five year old son on the run from the murderer of her ex-husband and the double–crossing lawmen that were supposed to keep her safe. She has this down to a science: arrive in a new place, switch names, never give away background information, don’t get in touch with family or anyone, and don’t stay in one place too long or get connected to anyone. Hope for justice.
Beau Callahan works at his family’s Christmas tree farm, and is dating his youngest brother’s best friend. When Eden (who is calling herself Kate) shows up at his doorstep looking for work because her car broke down, his compassionate heart won’t let him turn her down. When sparks start flying with Eden/Kate, he knows all he wants is to protect her. But will she ever be able to trust someone again?
I really liked this novel. The plotline and characters were fantastic. I really like this author, and I was not disappointed with this new series. I would recommend it. It was a little intense in some flashbacks and at the climax of the story, but it wasn’t overdone and I thought this book was excellent.
Thank you so much to Thomas Nelson and Net Galley for providing me with an e-copy of this book to read and review. All opinions are my own and were not required to be positive.
