Dear readers,

I’m so very excited for the release of SUGAR PINE TRAIL. I first introduced Jamie Caine back in 2013 in my book CHRISTMAS IN SNOWFLAKE CANYON. He was the brother to the hero of that book but even then, I knew I would have to write his story at some point. It’s been a long wait but I’m absolutely thrilled to be able to give him his happy ending at last.

Sugar Pine TrailI love this review from Romantic Times:

“Equal parts romantic and touching, this holiday return to Haven Point tugs at the heart even as hero Jamie Caine leaves a trail of swooning readers in his wake. Quiet librarian Julia Winston seems like hunky pilot Jamie’s exact opposite, and since everyone knows opposites attract, get ready for sparks to fly! The romance is definitely sweet and sexy, but it’s the subplot involving the two brothers whom Julia unexpectedly fosters that makes this book a must-read. Heartwarming (sometimes heart-wrenching) and swoony makes the perfect combination for a holiday read, and Thayne’s impeccable style is the icing on the Christmas cake.”

SUGAR PINE TRAIL isn’t my only holiday release! Watch for the next Cold Creek book. THE RANCHER’S CHRISTMAS SONG is the story of Ella Baker, who first appeared in last year’s THE HOLIDAY GIFT. Two cute little boys have an important role in that book too, when they ask Ella to help them prepare a special performance for their father, sexy rancher Beck McKinley.

From Romantic Times: “Thayne welcomes readers back to her idyllic close-knit Pine Gulch, Idaho, ranching community featuring her iconic Christmas Ranch and starring a wary widower, gutsy heroine and twin pint-sized charmers for another sweet Christmas tale. The Idaho landscapes in the lee of the Tetons are majestic, and the series catch-ups inform. But it’s definitely the way the author handles the delicate balance of relationships — familial, romantic and friendship — with the heroine’s courage to face her fears that puts the real magic in this heartwarming holiday tale.”

Thank you all for staying in touch with me through Facebook, Instagram, email or Twitter. I love hearing from my wonderful readers!

All my very best,
