"Snowfall on Lighthouse Lane," is a story that I thoroughly loved as a whole. In fact, this book is one of the best stories that I have ever read. Like Jolene, the protagonist of the story I recently moved back to my hometown. I think this is one of the reasons that I loved this story so much. Jolene reminded me a lot about myself. I was a little homesick for my previous residence. This book reminds me of how special hometowns are.
This story was very solid from the beginning. It is beautifully written with such warmth that I felt better about my own decision to move. Both Jolene and Aiden needed a fresh start. I don't think that Jolene expected to find a diamond in the rough. However, she was able to find her own happy ending with Aiden.
Still, I would not classify this novel as being a true romance. In my opinion, the town itself was more the superstar of this book. Romance highlighted a number of chapters but this is not a typical romance read. I normally root more for romance but in this book, everything blended so well that I am happy.
I love this story. It is an excellent read to cozy up late at night or even during a rainy day. I did not want to put the book down as it is that wonderful. I would highly suggest this book to fellow readers who are looking for a story of second chances in the most unlikely of places.
Lose yourself in the magic, charm and romance of Christmas in the Pacific Northwest as imagined in JoAnn Ross’s heartwarming Honeymoon Harbor series.
Growing up on the wrong side of the tracks, Jolene Wells is forever indebted to the mother who encouraged her to fly—all the way to sunny LA and a world away from Honeymoon Harbor. Although Jolene vowed never to look back, returning home isn’t even a question when her mom faces a cancer scare. Which means running into Aiden Mannion all over town, the first boy she ever loved—and lost—and whom she can barely look in the eye.
Aiden’s black-sheep reputation may have diminished when he joined the marines, but everything he’s endured since has left him haunted. Back in Honeymoon Harbor to heal, he’s talked into the interim role of police chief, and the irony isn’t lost on the locals, least of all Aiden. But seeing Jolene after all these years is the unexpected breath of fresh air he’s been missing. He’s never forgotten her through all his tours, but he’s not sure anymore that he’s the man she deserves.
Despite the secret they left between them all those years ago, snow is starting to fall on their picturesque little town, making anything seem possible…maybe even a second chance at first love.
