Book Review – Coming Home For Christmas by RaeAnne Thayne @raeannthayne @HarlequinBooks @HQNBooks #BookReview #BlogTour #contemporary

Many thanks to Justine and publisher Harlequin Books for my spot on this Blog Tour.

I have 5 romantic books on tour today. This is



This book was something more than a romance. It had mystery and intrigue, pain and pathos, forgiveness and second chance love.

Elizabeth was lost.

She was lost for 7 years. One day she walked out of her home and never looked back. Luke her husband was to be arrested by the DA. His friend investigated, found that Elizabeth was living as Sonia in Oregon. But she was so different. Luke rushed to get her back home to clear charges against him. But would there be forgiveness after hearing the story.

My first book by author RaeAnne Thayne, the story was everything I loved about a romance and more. The author’s brilliant writing pulled me into the story one page at a time, longing to know what happened to both. Tears flooded my eyes when I realized I too was blaming the wrong person instead of fate and circumstances.

Strength was written in ever word and love was the underlying emotion of every sentence. The author’s command over the story showing me the scenes was evocative. I couldn’t help but read far, far into the night more that I intended.

Elizabeth and Luke both captured my heart with their honesty. Life showed them a different phase that they never signed up for. And it was tough for them to climb back and find each other. The author sure did a wonderful job showing me that.

I want to keep going on and on in praise of this book. But I would end it here.

I loved the book and it loved me back. One of my best midnight reads. Some books really can make me want to lose sleep. Reading this book felt more important than sleep.

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

All my reviews can be read here

Elizabeth was trapped in a tangle of postpartum depression and grief after the death of her beloved parents and she couldn’t quite see the way back to her husband and their two beautiful kids…until a car accident stole away her memories and changed her life.

And when she finally remembered the sound of little Cassie’s laugh, the baby powder smell of Bridger, or the feel of her husband’s hand in hers, Elizabeth worried that they’d moved on without her. That she’d missed too much. That perhaps she wasn’t the right mother for her kids or wife for Luke, no matter how much she loved them.

But now, seven years later, Luke finds her in a nearby town and brings Elizabeth back home to the family she loves, just in time for Christmas. And being reunited with Luke and her children is better than anything Elizabeth could have imagined.

As they all trim the tree and bake cookies, making new holiday memories, Elizabeth and Luke are drawn ever closer. Can the hurt of the past seven years be healed over the course of one Christmas season and bring the Hamiltons the gift of a new beginning?

  1. Amazing review Shalini. I was lucky to get an audiobook of this one a couple of months ago and I really loved it as well. My heart broke a few times as I read this one. You captured the emotion in your review.
