Christmas at Holiday House by RaeAnne Thayne is a 2020 HQN publication.

And….
We have a winner!

I should have known RaeAnne Thayne would deliver!

This story features two love stories. The primary story is centered around Abigail and her son, Christopher. Abigail is widowed and looking to make a big change to help her move on. Before she heads out to her new destination, her best friend Lucy begs her to take care of her grandmother, who is recovering from an injury. How could Lucy refuse the chance to spend Christmas at Holiday House in snowy, Silver Bells, Colorado?

Things get off to a bumpy start when Abby is met at the door of Holiday House by Ethan, Lucy’s brother, who is opposed to Abby being there, preferring his grandmother stay at a care facility.

Despite their awkward beginnings, Ethan and Abby call a truce and soon discover they have a little chemistry brewing between them- although they would both rather not explore it too deeply.

Abby will be leaving immediately after Christmas, after all, and Ethan is convinced he is incapable of experiencing true love- and Abby deserves better than that. Best not to get too involved, right?

The secondary thread is centered around Lucy and Jose- one of Ethan’s best friends. Like Ethan, Lucy is very wary of committed relationships, but Jose is holding out for an all or nothing deal.

I loved the snowy backdrop, the sledding and the huge project of decorating Holiday House for Christmas!! Finally, a holiday story that features holiday activities and creates a fun wintry atmosphere that really makes it feel like it is Christmas time!

As to the romantic elements, for some reason I found myself more invested in Lucy and Jose’s story, which didn’t develop until much later in the story. I did enjoy watching Ethan bond with Christopher and I liked the way Abby slowly blossomed. Ethan and Lucy had a tough childhood, which plays a big role in the way they approach relationships. Their development is also central to the story and I thought having them both find true love was a nice touch.

A few surprises in here from Thayne as well. I wonder if she’s breaking away from the ‘Debbie Macomber’ mold, heading in a new direction.

Either way, I finally found a Christmas story that includes holiday trappings and atmosphere I’ve been looking for this entire holiday season!

Once again RaeAnne Thayne has written a delicious, cozy Christmas story. This time the setting is small-town Silver Bells, Colorado. Thayne is an expert at creating enchanting, welcoming communities with warm, friendly inhabitants that make me want to visit. I love the feeling of camaraderie among the people of her stories, and Christmas at Holiday House fits perfectly into this mold.

Widowed Abigail Powell is a compassionate, sweet heroine who is looking for a fresh start for herself and young son. When her friend Lucy needs someone to help her injured grandmother, Winnie, for a few weeks, Abby steps up and travels to Colorado. Ethan Lancaster is a competent, caring hero who finds himself interested in Abby and her son Christopher as they assist with his grandmother. It was fun to see their relationship change and develop. There is an additional substory with Lucy and her long-time friend, Jose. I had a special connection with the grandmother, since my name is Winnie, too. She’s a lot spunkier than I am, and I’m thinking of dying my hair pink to match hers!

This delightful tale is just the thing to get into the Christmas mood and a great addition to my collection of RaeAnne Thayne books. I recommend it to those who enjoy sweet Christmas stories. 4.5 stars
