Throwback Thursday meme was hosted by Renee@It’s Book Talk and is a way to share some of your old favorites as well as sharing books that you’re FINALLY getting around to reading that were published over a year ago. You know, the ones waiting patiently on your TBR list while you continue to pile more titles on top of them 😁! These older books are usually much easier than new releases to get a hold of at libraries and elsewhere. If you have your own Throwback Thursday recommendation feel free to jump on board.

This week I’m picking a book I read a few years ago and loved!!


There’s no place like seaside Blueberry Cove, Maine, at Christmas—and there’s nothing like a wedding, the warmth of the holidays, and an old crush, to create the perfect new start…
Interior designer Fiona McCrae has left fast-paced Manhattan to move back home to peaceful Blueberry Cove. But she’s barely arrived before she’s hooked into planning her big sister Hannah’s Christmas wedding—in less than seven weeks. The last thing she needs is for her first love, Ben Campbell, to return to neighboring Snowflake Bay…

As kids, Fiona was the bratty little sister Ben mercilessly teased—while pining after Hannah. But Fi never once thought of Ben like a brother. And that hasn’t changed. Except Fi is all grown up. Will Ben notice her now?  More importantly, with her life in a jumble, should he? Or might the romance of the occasion, the spirit of the season, and the gifts of time ignite a long-held flame for many Christmases to come…

Something old might just become something new…
Includes a DIY wedding project!



SNOWFLAKE BAY is book two in The Brides of Blueberry Cove series, which is quickly becoming a favorite series of mine. Blueberry Cove is in Maine and Christmas is coming along with Hannah and Calder’s wedding. Hannah’s sister, Fiona, is going crazy putting all the details together for her sister so she can have her perfect day. What she hadn’t planned on was running into Ben Campbell, her teenage crush. Ben has been her brother Logan’s best friend forever and Ben has always treated Fiona as a pesky little kid. His nickname for Fiona is Fire Plug and she has always cringed whenever he’s called her that. She thought she was over all of that now that she is a grown woman, but one look at Ben and she realizes that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Ben has never thought about Fiona as anything more than Fireplug Fi until one day, as he is watching her remove her big coat, what he sees knocks him for a loop. Holy cow! How did he not notice her sexy curves and beautiful smile before? At first, he tries to ignore his feelings but all that does is make him think about her more. Will they ever be more than friends?

There are many laugh out loud moments in SNOWFLAKE BAY, especially between all the McCrae siblings. Donna Kauffman gives you such a well-written story of the McCrae’s that you can’t help but feel as if they are old friends of yours as you are reading. For me, SNOWFLAKE BAY is a fun story but also at times, emotional and for one afternoon, it allowed me to escape to a wonderful small town and get involved in the McCrae’s lives and business.  Be prepared to laugh out loud and cry, sometimes at the same time with this lovely family. I love when an author can do that to me and I can’t wait until the next book comes out which will be in April 2016 and is called Starfish Moon. Finally, we will get to hear Kerry’s story.
