NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR RAEANNE THAYNE DELIVERS THE PERFECT WARMHEARTED TREAT FOR THE HOLIDAYS EVERGREEN SPRINGS October 2015
Celebrate the season with the expert of contemporary holiday romance, New York Times bestselling author RaeAnne Thayne and EVERGREEN SPRINGS, the third and final book in her Haven Point miniseries set near a rugged Idaho mountainside in a magical lakeside town that has a history of healing the most heartbroken of souls.
When Cole Barrett, a former wild boy rodeo star with a dangerous past, learns of his ex-wife’s sudden death, he knows life will never be the same again. After years of only getting the occasional visit with his son and daughter, aged six and eight, Cole suddenly finds himself with sole custody of these two troubled, hurting kids who have come to Evergreen Springs, his beautiful but isolated ranch, to live with him.
After just a few weeks of life as a full-time single dad, however, Cole knows he’s already in way over his head. With his kids running through housekeepers faster than he can hire them, and unable to take any more time away from his new horse-training business, Cole’s last hope is help from his sister, Tricia, who’s come home bearing her own marital problems. But when the very pregnant Tricia ends up being hospitalized with an ankle injury just before the holidays, a Cole who’s barely hanging on knows only an angel bestowing miracles could keep him from being overwhelmed.
Local family physician and former cancer survivor Dr. Devin Shaw has seen firsthand the miraculous curative powers that the mineral waters of Lake Haven possess…waters that extend to the private hot springs on Cole’s property. The springs would be ideal for treating her elderly patients but the privacy-obsessed Cole is unwilling to share them. So after learning about his situation from her old high school friend Tricia, Devin makes an offer to Cole—in exchange for use of his hot springs for her patients, she’ll help watch his kids and try to provide them with some actual seasonal fun.
But their arrangement becomes far more personal than either of them anticipated. Devin is irresistibly drawn to this troubled but wonderful little family, yearning for a life she fears she’ll never have due to her own scarred background. Meanwhile, Cole can’t keep his mind off the attractive doctor and her magical way with his kids, but he knows the last thing Devin needs is to get mixed up with a bad guy like him.
Cole and Devin both know they’re keeping secrets from each other—secrets that may keep them from finding real happiness for the first time in their lives. But if they’re looking for a holiday miracle to heal the wounds of their pasts, Evergreen Springs is the right place to start…

New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author RaeAnne Thayne loves words. Her love affair started as soon as she learned to read, when she used to devour anything she could get her hands on: cereal boxes, encyclopedias, the phone book, you name it! She loves the way words sound, the way they look on the page and the amazing way they can be jumbled together in so many combinations to tell a story.
Her love of reading and writing those words led her to a fifteen-year career in journalism as a newspaper reporter and editor.
Through it all, she dreamed of writing the kind of stories she loved best. She sold her first book in 1995 and since then she’s published more than 40 titles. Her books have won many honors, including three RITA® Award nominations from the Romance Writers of America and a Career Achievement Award from RT Book Reviews magazine.
RaeAnne finds inspiration in the rugged northern Utah mountains where she lives with her hero of a husband and their children. She loves to hear from readers and can be reached through her website at www.raeannethayne.com.
My Assessment –
I loved the first two books in this series and was excited to review the third and final book, Evergreen Springs. This story tells Cole and Devin’s story.
In Evergreen Springs, RaeAnne Thayne weaves her romantic magic among the obstacles called life in Evergreen Springs. The scenery is beautiful and the characters lovable along with great writing. If you have already read Snow Angel Cove (Haven Point Book 1)and Redemption Bay (Haven Point)you will absolutely love the final book. I am giving Evergreen Springs five stars. Buy it and enjoy a romantic Christmas season!
