"Falling Like Snowflakes"

Book Description from the publisher:

When the Christmas season finds Eden in Summer Harbor, Maine, she's on the run from trouble. Romance is the last thing on her mind.
Riding in a bus in the thickly falling snow, Eden Davis wonders how it ever came to this-fleeing under cover of night with young Micah sleeping fitfully in the seat beside her. When a winter storm strands them in Summer Harbor, Maine, Eden wonders if what might have been the end could be a new beginning.
Beau Callahan is a habitual problem-solver. He's recently left his job with the sheriff's department to take over the family Christmas tree farm to save it from insolvency. But he's flummoxed. During the busiest season of the year, he's shorthanded. Then Eden shows up looking for work, and Beau believes he's been rescued. Competent, smart, and beautiful, Eden's also guarded and quiet. He soon figures out she comes with a boatload of secrets. But Beau can't seem to help himself from falling for her.
As Christmas Eve approaches, Beau discovers he'll do anything to keep Eden safe. But who's going to protect his heart from a woman who can't seem to trust again?

My Review:
I was able to read "Falling Like Snowflakes" weeks ago as I received an electronic copy via Netgalley and when I saw the paperback version available through BookLook Bloggers, I just had to request it so that it is a part of my collection on my bookshelves, but also so I can share it with others to read.  As seems to be the case with Denise Hunter's books, I read this book in one sitting, it was impossible to put down!  First of all, I loved that this series' setting was introduced in her previous novel ("Married 'Til Monday"), which was the conclusion of her most recent series.  I felt like I already knew the town and a few of the characters and it was great to be back there in Maine.  I absolutely love Christmas and this book is set around Christmas time so I was loving that as well.  The Callahan brothers whom were introduced in "Married 'Til Monday" are main characters in this book along with Eden, a woman who finds herself in their town with nowhere to go and a son to protect.  As Eden helps out the Callahan family, she finds herself slowly relaxing and settling into life, but still finds herself on high alert, although her heart is being involved. 
I loved the storyline, and the small town feel and family business part of the story and how easy it was to relate to the characters as the brothers are trying to work together and run the business, but yet deal with personal issues in each of their lives as well (and when their personal lives intersect as well).  The suspense that is woven throughout the book adds to the story as well and keeps you turning the pages until you reach the very end.  I am looking forward to book #2!
