Christmas in Snowflake Canyon by Raeanne Thayne
I love the covers of this series Hope's Crossing, even on ebooks they make a difference. I have enjoyed Hope's Crossing and this Christmas is the best one for me yet. It has a spoiled leading lady that I did not think I was going to like, Wounded soldiers, Christmas surprises, a lot of humor, relationships between lots of familiar characters, romance and Hope's Crossing bring together a good story.
I admit to not liking Genevieve in previous books. Now I love her and want more of her.(I admit I wanted her one secret to come out) She has grown up enough to do the hard things in life by sincerely apologizing to people she has offended in the past.
Genevieve has been brought home from Paris by her parents. She gets into some trouble and gets community service at Wounded warriors. (What I don't understand how come the lawyer did not get into trouble by Stepping hard on her foot first not suffer.)
Dylan Caine wants to be left alone in his cabin up the canyon. He has lost an eye and part of his arm. He is the town hero. He wants nothing to do with the Wounded Warriors program. So when he gets into trouble and gets community service at Wounded Warriors he is not so happy for that.
Dylan's family has been worried about him and wants him to socialize more. He has 5 older brothers and a sister. Plus his father around for him.
We get to see the Wounded Warriors program a lot more in this story. Their are so many touching scenes.
Some members of Hope's Crossing don't think too much about Genevieve but most change their minds as they see her and get to see what she has grown into.
This book is good. If you have read and liked her other books in this series than you will want to read this one for sure. Lots of good things inside to bring smiles as you read. This is a clean read.
I was given this ebook to read and asked in exchange to give honest review from NetGalley and Harlequin.

Description below taken off of NetGalley.
Holiday gifts don't always come in expected packages…especially in the town of Hope's Crossing.
No one has ever felt sorry for Genevieve Beaumont. After all, she has everything money can buy. That is, until she discovers her fiancé has been two-timing her and she's left with two choices: marry the philanderer to please her controlling father or be disinherited and find a means to support herself.
Genevieve's salvation appears in the most unlikely of prospects: Dylan Caine, a sexy, wounded war vet whose life is as messy as hers. Dylan's struggling to adjust after his time in Afghanistan, and the last thing he needs is a spoiled socialite learning about the real world for the first time. True, she may have unexpected depths and beauty to match. But he knows he could never be the man she needs…and she knows he could never be the man she thinks she wants. So why are they each hoping that a Christmas miracle willl prove them both wrong?
