“If you want to snuggle up with something cute that makes you feel all fuzzy inside this Christmas season than I recommend that you give Sugar Pine Trail a try. ”
~ Under the Covers

Librarian Julia Winston lives a very sedate and quiet life in the big old house her parents left her. Until that is the man she has been crushing on moves in as her lodger over the Christmas season. Her tactic of avoiding him until he moves out so he doesn’t figure our her embarrassing crush comes to a halt though when she fosters two young brothers who have no where else to go. Now her old house is full of life and laughter…and maybe even love, but will Julia be willing to step outside her quiet life to claim it?spacer

It felt very strange reading this Christmassy book in my swimsuit under the hot Mexican sun…somehow I managed though, cocktail in hand. But, despite (or maybe because of) the strange juxtaposition in weather and atmosphere between where I was and what was happening in the book, I really enjoyed the cozy seasonal read. Yes, it was predictable and yes it was almost nauseatingly sweet, but at the same time it managed to get me in the Christmas spirit whilst on a summer holiday, so kudos!

If you’re looking for a hot romance to read over the season than this probably isn’t for you, it’s more of a steady build. As they begin to get know one another their feelings build as Jamie starts to notice Julia and Julia sees Jamie as more than just the womanising charmer and begin to know the real him. I thought it was a really sweet romance, it’s nice to read something that isn’t over saturated with sex and lust without anything deeper mixed in. I also liked the addition of Julia fostering the two young boys, is there anything more likely to tug on your heart strings than orphans at Christmas?

I haven’t RaeAnne Thayne before but I would definitely give her books a go when I am in the mood for something sweet to chow down on. If you want to snuggle up with something cute that makes you feel all fuzzy inside this Christmas season than I recommend that you give Sugar Pine Trail a try.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
