A COLD CREEK CHRISTMAS SURPRISE
A COLD CREEK CHRISTMAS SURPRISE (4.5) by RaeAnne Thayne: Ten years after losing his parents to a Christmas crime, Ridge Bowman was gifted back a stolen painting, delivered by a most delectable elf who is definitely hiding something. Sarah Whitmore’s plan was to deliver the painting and run; that was before she was injured in a fall and fell for the sexy rancher. But when he learns the truth about her connection to the painting and the murders, he will be the one running. Can love survive in the shadow of violence? Thayer’s return to Cold Creek is poignant and angst-filled. Her narrative beautifully paints both the bucolic panoramas of Idaho and her couple’s tender romance.
