Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Alexandra McKnight is about to realize her dream of being a chef when Brodie Thorne, a wealthy resident of Hope’s Crossing, decides to build an upscale restaurant. Sam Delgado, a widowed carpenter, is brought in from Denver to finish the building. Alex likes short romances; she doesn’t want a long-term commitment and always checks to make sure the men she dates are not married or already in a relationship. So her plan to have a fling with the handsome carpenter runs into complications when it turns out that Sam has a six-year-old son and will be making Hope’s Crossing his permanent home. Characters encountered in Thayne’s (Woodrose Mountain, 2012) earlier books make appearances that enhance the pleasure for fans but won’t detract from the experience of readers new to the series. As always, the denizens of this small, authentic Colorado town work their way right into the hearts of readers in Thayne’s latest feel-good read. --Diana Tixier Herald

Review

"Hope's Crossing is a charming series that inspires hope and the belief miracles are possible." --Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"Small-town sensibilities drive this very sweet romance in which two people learn that everything that makes them good friends makes them easy to love."

-Library Journal on Blackberry Summer

"Plenty of tenderness and Colorado sunshine flavor this pleasant escape."

-Publishers Weekly on Woodrose Mountain

"Thayne, once again, delivers a heartfelt story of a caring community and a caring romance between adults who have triumphed over tragedies."

-Booklist on Woodrose Mountain

RaeAnne Thayne gives another enchanting read with her newest addition to her Hope's Crossing series and it's a classic romance set in a lovely town filled with exciting people that are nice to catch up with in every new book.

Things are going pretty well for sous chef Alexandra McKnight. She is about to fulfill a lifelong dream by being in charge of her own restaurant. She is surrounded by a caring family, just bought her first house, enjoys lovingly preparing meals for people in need, especially her elderly friend Caroline, and she has even taken in a stray Lab she found wandering around and life is good... everything except for her growing attraction to Sam Delgado...

Sam is a sexy ex Army Ranger and widower, loaded with muscles, talent and a big heart and he just happens to be the guy who is finishing Alex's new kitchen. While the attraction is definitely mutual, Alex has a hard time admitting just how happy she is whenever they're together. And when Sam introduces Alex to his young son Ethan who is the cutest, smartest little thing she's ever seen, the warning bells go off as she realizes she could fall in love with these two with very little effort. The problem is, after being hurt by two important men in her life before, Alex is not about to go down that road again. So much to Sam's frustration, Alex refuses to pursue the relationship resulting in aching hearts for both of them. Alex's fear is stronger than her desire to admit her feelings for Sam and for most of the book she's fighting it with all she's got.

Current Creek Valley is an enjoyable read, a solid romance with a large list of appealing characters, especially the ever patient Sam. Alex keeps herself so busy, trying to run from her demons, that she made be feel exhausted just trying to keep up.

This one wasn't my favorite in the series, but it was a decent read. I loved the character of Sam--strong, patient, great father, fantastic...hands. His son, Ethan, was awesome--reminded me a lot of the boy in Jerry Maguire. (Did you know the human head weighs ten pounds? ;)) The chocolate lab was sweet (though yet another example of a fictional animal who makes me feel inadequate as a non-fictional owner, but I digress.) The character I had problems with was Alex. She just seemed too hung up on her issues, which, when we finally find out what they are, just didn't add up to the hype as far as I was concerned. Of course we got the HEA, and saw many favorite characters from the other books, so in the end all's well that ends well. I'll definitely be looking forward to the next installment--and only partially to see what Ethan's up to :)

First of all, what a pretty cover! If you love food and you love romance, this is a wonderfully fun book to read. The characters are charming and engaging. I was a little confused in the beginning with there being so many characters, but it gets easier to distinguish who is who as the novel progresses. By the second chapter I had it figured out.

The plot for this book was good and the pacing was perfect. One thing about Currant Creek Valley that really impressed me was how the chemistry between the characters is obvious. The author doesn't waste any time bringing the heat between her characters to the reader. RaeAnne Thayne is a master at building quirky characters that have the right amount of fire between them to keep you turning the pages.

I found the romances in this book to be exactly what I was hoping for. There was enough suggestion to raise my temperature without getting explicit; which I appreciated. There is a healthy amount of humor throughout the book and that made it a lot of fun to read.

The happenings throughout the story with the new business made for an interesting backdrop and gave the book another element aside from the romance.

I would recommend this book to lover's of cozy romance and those who like creations from the kitchen!

This review is based on a digital ARC from the publisher via Netgalley.

I was excited to get the new "Hope's Crossing" book and delighted that it was not a disappointment. The characters are warm, funny and compassionate. I found myself smiling and tearing up. It is a stand-alone read but is easier if you have read the books before this one: Sweet Laurel Falls, etc. because of the back historys. It was like have lunch with friends and getting caught up on all the latest gossip. Can't wait for the next one in June. I hope we get to visit with the residents of Hope's Crossings for many books to come.

Hope's Crossing book 4

I like Hope's Crossing books. It is a community that has pulled its self together. The characters are interesting and keep me wanting to know more about them. It is good to see old friends and what they are up to now. It is also a clean read.

Alexandra is about to have her dream come true. She is going to have her own restraunt. That if her kitchen is done on time. Alex only dates guys who won't be around for the long time. She is also hiding a secret. Alex has a big family, most who live close by.

Sam came to Currant Creek Valley to work. He is taking over to finsh the restraunt after the last guy had to leave on family business. Sam was a army ranger. He is looking for a new home to raise his son in. Sam does not let Alex know that he has a son or thinking of moving his business to Currant Creek Valley.

Alex on first meeting Sam after a misunderstanding occured asks him if he is married? So if they want to go out she needs to know that he is single. Sam says yes but he was a Ranger and they always lead the way. So he asks her.

They had a great time and on a walk around town Alex found a stray dog around town. He was skinny but had a collar on him. Alex names him Leo. She hopes to find his owner.

Their are no big secrets to reveal. Only personal trials they each face but you are slowly getting the answers you want to know. I did not want to put the book down last night. Read till my eyes could not focus anymore.

One secret of Sam's is he has a cute son living with his brother while he finshes the school year. Than Sam will bring him to Hope's Crossing.
Ethan is very smart and friendly. He is not afraid to hint at what he likes.
