Haven Point

Welcome to Haven Point! Haven Point is a series of books that explores healing in its various forms – healing hearts, healing bodies, healing families and healing a town.Haven Point, Idaho, is a small town of roughly four thousand people on the shores of Lake Haven. The area was revered by the early Native American tribes who traveled through the area, mostly Bannock, Shoshone and Paiute. They would bring their injured and sickly to the lake and the nearby town of Shelter Springs that feed into the Hell’s Fury River. They believed the area to possess mystical healing properties, similar to places like Taos, New Mexico or Sedona, Arizona. Over the years, that healing power has been lost and it’s up to the good people of Haven Point to find it again.

Haven Point’s main industry used to be boat building. Since the boat factory closed, the town has struggled to find its way again.

Across the lake from Haven Point is the magnificent Redemption Mountains Range, rising up majestically from deep, stunning blue waters.

Snow Angel CoveNothing short of a miracle can restore Eliza Hayward’s Christmas cheer. The job she pinned her dreams on has gone up in smoke—literally—and now she’s stuck in an unfamiliar, if breathtaking, small town. Precariously close to being destitute, Eliza needs a hero, but she’s not expecting one who almost runs her down with his car!

Rescuing Eliza is pure instinct for tech genius Aidan Caine. At first, putting the renovation of his lakeside guest lodge in Eliza’s hands assuages his guilt—until he sees how quickly he could fall for her. Having focused solely on his business for years, he never knew what his life was missing before Eliza, but now he’s willing to risk his heart on a yuletide romance that could lead to forever.

“A perfect holiday read … A well-crafted plot combined with heartfelt storytelling proves Thayne is a true expert at writing contemporary holiday romance.”

Evergreen Springs, November 2015

Evergreen SpringsChristmas is the last thing on Cole Barrett’s mind this year. He’s barely hanging on trying to care for his two grieving children since his ex-wife died in a tragic accident. For the reclusive Cole, this is no time for gift-giving and celebration—and certainly not for a sunny-natured optimist to blow into his screwed-up life. 

Physician Devin Shaw has long researched the curative powers of Lake Haven’s mineral waters. Unfortunately, the hot springs are on Barrett property, forcing Devin to strike a bargain with the ranch’s attractively gruff owner: she’ll give Cole’s children a magical Christmas, and Cole will allow her patients access to the springs. But can she work her holiday magic to heal the Barrett family’s battered hearts—and her own?
