My Rating:

In the town of Haven Point, love can be just a wish—and one magical kiss—away…

Computer-tech millionaire Bowie Callahan is about the last person that schoolteacher Katrina Bailey wants to work for. As far as she can see, he's arrogant, entitled and not up to the task of caring for his young half brother, Milo. But Kat is, especially if it brings her closer to her goal of adopting an orphaned little girl. And as her kindness and patience work wonders with Milo, she realizes there's more to sexy, wary Bo than she'd ever realized.

Bo never imagined he'd be tasked with caring for a sibling he didn't know existed. Then again, he never pictured himself impulsively kissing vibrant, compassionate Katrina in the moonlight. Now he's ready to make her dream of family come true…and hoping there's room in it for him, too…

Lets Get to The Point

I am really enjoying the Haven Point series by RaeAnne Thayne. They all have been very enjoyable with all the elements one would expect of a small town romance written by one of the best.

Although Serenity Harbor wasn’t my favorite of the series, please don’t let that stop you from picking up this series or this book.

High Points:

  • I love this setting and was thrilled to be back in Haven Point and to catch up with all of my favorite characters. The town is just perfect and delivers all the feels.
  • I loved that this book focused on some difficult issues like International Adoption (I know how difficult this can be as one of my nieces was adopted from overseas) and Autism.
  • The relationship between Milo and Katrina was just precious.
  • I loved seeing more of Kat and Wyn’s relationship.

Low Points:

  • Katrina just seemed a bit too immature for someone of her age. She kept going on about how important it was for her to change and be more responsible…yet it seemed that she used that as an excuse for more immature behavior.
  • Bo was unbelievably forgetful at times. I understand that work can distract and delay one at times…but come on…

Despite my few reservations…Serenity Harbor is a swoon worthy addition to the Haven Point series and a great summer escape to the lake:)

About RaeAnne Thayne

RaeAnne Thayne

I’m not one of those people who knew from birth she was destined to become a writer. I always loved to read and throughout my childhood I could usually be found with a book in my hands. To the disgust of my friends, I even enjoyed creative writing assignments that made them all groan. But I had other dreams besides writing. I wanted to be an actress or a teacher or a lawyer.

Life took a different turn for me, though, when my mother made me take a journalism elective in high school (thanks, Mom!). I knew the first day that this was where I belonged.

After I graduated from college in journalism, I took a job at the local daily newspaper and I reveled in the challenge and the diversity of it. One day I could be interviewing the latest country music star, the next day I was writing about local motorcycle gangs or interviewing an award-winning scientist.

Through it all — through the natural progression of my career from reporter to editor — I wrote stories in my head. Not just any stories, either, but romances, the kind of books I have devoured since junior high school, with tales about real people going through the trials and tribulations of life until they find deep and lasting love.

I had no idea how to put these people on paper, but knew I had to try — their stories were too compelling for me to ignore. I sold my first book in 1995 and now, more than 40 books later, I’ve come to love everything about writing, from the click of the computer keys under my fingers to the “that’s-it!” feeling I get when a story is flowing.

I write full-time now (well, as full-time as I can manage juggling my kids!) amid the raw beauty of the northern Utah mountains.

Even though I might not have dreamed of being a writer when I was younger, now I simply can’t imagine my life any other way.

  1. I do love small town romance. The immature heroine might bother me, but the plot sounds like I’d be able to enjoy it enough to hopefully deal with it. LOL

    Great review! 🙂
