Award-winning author Denise Hunter kicks off a new series set in Summer Harbor, Maine and the relationships of the Callahan brothers.

In Falling Like Snowflakes, widowed Eden Martelli is on the run with her five-year-old son. Part of the Witness Protection program, they saw the murder of the US marshall who was in charge of their security. When Eden arrives in Summer Harbor with a broken-down car, an expensive repair, and no money, she has no choice but to stay in Summer Harbor for the time being.

Meanwhile Beau Callahan left his sheriff’s job to take over the operations of the family Christmas tree farm after his parents’ death. Beau is facing his first Christmas without them. When Beau’s aunt needs someone to help her while she recuperates after a hospital stay, Beau thinks Eden is the answer to prayer — and Eden needs the job, even if he can’t check her references. When he starts to investigate her background, Eden’s past catches up to her, putting them in danger.

As they get to know one another, they find themselves attracted to one another. Can Beau protect Eden and her son? Will they find a future together as they rebuild trust and let go of their fears?

Hunter is known for her adult inspirational contemporary romances. Falling Like Snowflakes is different from her earlier works with its danger and suspense, while still having romantic tension. The faith element is light but evident.

Falling Like Snowflakes is the first in Hunter’s new series and a Christy 2016 nominee (Contemporary Romance/Suspense). The book includes discussion questions for book clubs. The other books in this series include: Just a Kiss, and The Goodbye Bride.

Recommended for church and public libraries.
