Review copy provided for a voluntary review. Dec 09, Penny rated it it was ok. With that synopsis I was expecting some angst, and was actually dreading it, it turns out there was none and that was even worst.

How can a couple just reunited after 7 years of no contact, just because loooovvvee Very good second chance story that deals with some hard subjects.

Seven years earlier, Elizabeth walked out into the night and disappeared, leaving her husband and children behind. Luke has dealt with being a single father as best he could, but it hasn't been easy.

The whispers around town of why Elizabeth left and what happened to her have only gotten worse. To complicate matters, Luke is about to be arrested and charged with her murder, even though there is no proof that she is dead.

On the co Very good second chance story that deals with some hard subjects. On the contrary, Luke has recently discovered that Elizabeth is alive and well, living in a town several hours away, so he goes to get her to clear his name.

I ached for both Luke and Elizabeth. At the time of her disappearance, Elizabeth was struggling with a double dose of depression. First was the pain she felt after the deaths of her parents.

Added to that was the severe postpartum depression that Elizabeth experienced after the birth of her second child. Terrified that she would physically harm the baby, and convinced that they would all be better off without her, she left home.

Though it didn't take her long to realize she'd made a mistake and turn around to go back, fate intervened. Elizabeth was involved in an accident that left her in a coma with extensive physical and mental injuries, including a loss of memory.

It was several years before her memory began to return, and each memory added to the guilt she felt. She wants to go back, but worries about if it's the right thing for her family.

Luke has never forgotten Elizabeth and grieved for her every day. He does his best with his kids, though he occasionally exhibits moments of frustration and guilt, such as when it comes to doing his daughter Cassie's hair.

He frequently blames himself for not seeing the depth of Elizabeth's problems thanks to his preoccupation with getting his business up and running.

He faces the rumors and innuendos stoically and keeps on living his life. When a friend with the FBI tracks down Elizabeth, Luke is furious that she's been so close without letting anyone know.

Now all he wants is to clear his name, get divorce papers signed, and try to move on with his life. The first encounter between Luke and Elizabeth is an emotional roller coaster.

She is stunned to find him at her door, demanding her immediate return to Haven Point. Even though she had planned to return soon, she feels unprepared to face everything now.

Luke is so furious that he refuses to listen to Elizabeth's attempts to explain, wanting only to get it over with.

He does all he can to keep her at an emotional distance. Though Luke's anger is understandable, I ached for Elizabeth when he refused to let her see the children.

It was satisfying to see Luke present Elizabeth to the DA and clear his name of her murder. I also liked seeing Luke's shock as he listened to everything Elizabeth had been through.

I loved how he lost his anger and became willing to let her back in their lives. It wasn't all unicorns and rainbows, though. While Luke is ready to allow her to see and spend time with the kids, he is determined not to let her back into his heart.

He was devastated when she left the first time and didn't want to go through it again if he allows himself to love her again. Elizabeth never stopped loving Luke and the children, but she is still convinced that they are better off without her.

Because the people of the town need to know that Elizabeth is alive, she and Luke must make public appearances together. There are some very emotional and sometimes funny scenes as Elizabeth reconnects with her friends and neighbors.

There are also some painful scenes when Elizabeth spends time with Cassie and Bridger. Though Bridger comes around pretty quickly, Elizabeth's attempts to rebuild trust with Cassie do not go as smoothly.

There are also some fantastic family scenes. I especially enjoyed the snowball fight and the promise it showed. As Luke and Elizabeth spend time together, it becomes clear that their feelings for each other are still there.

I enjoyed seeing them get to know each other as they are now. Elizabeth has trouble believing that Luke could forgive her enough to allow her back in their lives.

It wasn't easy, but with honesty and love, both Luke and Elizabeth were able to see that they belonged together.

I loved their big moment at the end as they were finally able to open their hearts fully again. The epilogue was terrific and honestly portrayed their progress and the challenges they still face.

Just not believable. Some spoilers below. Be warned. I am sorry, the minute I got my memories back I would go home.

I would have given it five stars if that had happened. Instead there were more years she wasn't taking care of her children.

I understood why she left but honestly she would have gone back home sooner than later. She was mentally ill and I can see being scared by her thoughts.

And then She was hurt and had amnesia and okay, I will go with that. After all it is fiction. But the rest Just not believable. But the rest was just not to my taste.

The book was written very well. I like this author. It is a seven year separation and the Father raised their kids. He was not nice to the heroine because he was angry but I would be too.

He did come around and I liked the reconciliation part of it. Just wish the heroine had sucked it up and gone home sooner.

This guy was a true hero too. Safe and no pornographic or any love scenes. I liked that for a change.

This is the tenth book in the Haven Point series, but the first I have read. I had no problems following this delightful story and it works well as a standalone Christmas story.

What would you do if you were afraid that you would hurt your children? If you were so depressed, that nothing seemed worth living for? I can't imagine that, but it doesn't mean that this is not something that happens to women suffering from postpartum depression.

Add in a car accident that steals your memories and your l This is the tenth book in the Haven Point series, but the first I have read.

Add in a car accident that steals your memories and your looks and it takes years to remember the family you left behind.

My heart went out to Elizabeth. As she began to remember her family, her guilt overwhelms her and she is afraid to make an overture to return to her family.

Sneaking in and out of town to watch her children grow up is all she thinks she has. When Luke is on the verge of being arrested and charged for her murder, he follows up on the information he has regarding her whereabouts and brings her back to Haven Point.

The only reason for this is to clear his name, get a divorce and move forward with his life, but the best laid plans go awry as he learns what caused her to flee as well as what happened after that.

Elizabeth is a woman who loves her children and does not want to disrupt their lives. She is a bit of a shadow in their lives and as much as she is living relatively happily in her new life, she is very sad about what she has left behind.

Bridger and Cassie were typical children. There was anger, mistrust, yet the love was there trying to come out.

This family grabbed my heart and wanted them to come together as a family. Add in some Christmas magic and you know something good is going to happen.

This story grabbed me right from the beginning and I was totally absorbed in the lives of the Hamiltons. The seriousness of postpartum depression and chronic pain and disability was handled in a very realistic way.

This is an issue that has been swept under the rug for years, yet is something that should be known about and discussed. As well, living with pain without medicating with addictive medications is also a timely and important issue.

This was incorporated well into the story making it part of everyday, not an add on. I enjoyed this well-written and plotted story and will definitely be reading more books in this series.

The publisher, HQN Books, provided me with an ebook upon my request. The rating, ideas and opinions shared are my own. She does a nice job with the narration and voices.

The voices for the males were more female sounding that other books I have listened to, but I was able to identify them when they were speaking.

This book felt like it was being read to me, with great expression and feeling. I really enjoyed this reading and it added to my enjoyment of this book.

The publisher, Harlequin Audio, provided me with a copy of this audiobook upon my request. Sep 24, Siobhan rated it really liked it.

As with each of the books in the series, this one works perfectly fine as a standalone novel. There were plenty of possibilities, and I was eager to see what the reality of the situation would be.

With Coming Home for Christmas, we got that truth. It did not disappoint, ensuring I was hooked throughout. As is often the case with RaeAnne Thayne, I completed this one in a single sitting as I did not want to put it down.

It deals with a serious topic well, whilst offering a light story that is easy to follow. I felt a few things were a bit too easy towards the end, but as a whole it hooked me.

Without a doubt, fans of the Haven Point series need to give this one a read. One dark night Luke's wife Elizabeth stumbled out of her house lost in the fog of a deep dark depression.

The night was cold and snowy, and she wasn't heard of again. What happened to her? Did she die? Has she chosen another life and family?

Luke has always wondered as he has spent the seven intervening years being a wonderful Dad to his daughter Cassie and son Bridger.

When by some miracle she is found and returns to their lives it is with very mixed and varied feelings on all their parts.

What One dark night Luke's wife Elizabeth stumbled out of her house lost in the fog of a deep dark depression. What has happened to Elizabeth in the meantime?

Can they all find their way back to each other or is the divorce Luke plans the most effective way to deal. Needless to say this story grabbed me and I read it every chance I had.

It's sad and yet so very heart warming as well. Luke is a fantastic Dad and he has done such a great job of raising his two children.

Elizabeth has been through a lot, yet is such a compassionate, loving person. A perfect Christmas read. Dec 28, Priyanka rated it really liked it.

So he goes to get his wife who ran away from the house, as she was suffering from postpartum depression at the time, but when she didn't return home and stayed away, he presumed she was dead.

That's why he is hostile towards her when he discovers that she has been alive all this time and didn't return home for seven long years.

Elizabeth has been through hell and back, with the accident and the reality is completely different from what Luke is imagining. Elizabeth can't get enough glances at her family from afar, she wants to see them and wants her life back but that doesn't seem likely to happen.

When Luke comes to get her, she is shocked to learn that Luke is in trouble because of her disappearance and the truth is far from what everyone has been assuming about him.

She is all ready to clear the misunderstanding and wants to help her family and protect them with everything she has. This is a second chance romance, the kids were cute, the people in the town were colourful, some good, some grey, not everyone is perfect, the story had some drama and I liked all of that.

But I found the story a bit fast-paced. It doesn't seem plausible to get over all the seven years of hurt in a week, but because the writing was good, it didn't feel out of place and the story flowed nicely.

I just wished I had gotten some more time to see the characters adjusting well. I read this book in one sitting because it was such a page-turner, I couldn't stop.

What I love most about it is how relatable and real her cast of characters are…to the point that they are not just two-dimensional characters on a page.

If you are looking for a somewhat angsty, Hallmark movie style Christmas romance that also does a great job of highlighting the seriousness of post-partum depression, then Coming Home for Christmas is definitely worth picking up!

This is a second-chance romance involving a woman who left her husband and two small children and disappeared for seven years.

Now her husband has tracked her down to prove he is innocent of her suspected murder. Why did she leave and where has she been all this time?

I If you are looking for a somewhat angsty, Hallmark movie style Christmas romance that also does a great job of highlighting the seriousness of post-partum depression, then Coming Home for Christmas is definitely worth picking up!

I initially wasn't sure how I was going to feel about this premise especially being a mom of two little ones myself but give it time, because you will fall for this family and root for their healing and reconciliation even if some of the plot points are kind of over-the-top in terms of believability.

What I love about this book is that it highlights mental health and post-partum depression in a way that is both serious and helpful. Many women experience some degree of of this after having a baby but it is too rarely talked about.

In this case, Elizabeth the main character has a very severe form of it including suicidal ideation and thoughts of harming her baby.

This is an important and under-discussed topic. The book also addresses disability and chronic illness in a way that is fantastic, celebrating the things that people experiencing these things bring to the table rather than perceiving them as burdens.

Ultimately, the rekindled romance is also very sweet and the progression of Elizabeth reconnecting with her children feels realistic. Sometimes these things happen to quickly when in reality, this is a trauma that would take time and therapy for a relationship to recover from.

This book handles that incredibly well. Overall, I found this to be slightly dramatic for my taste, but mostly enjoyable and a book that handled important and sensitive topics very well.

There seems to be more of them every year. The bigger problem is that there is nothing here but an idea for a movie. The setup is somewhat interesting.

The story isn't interesting enough. The actors try valiantly but there isn't anything more that they can do.

This movie needs to start with a better script. Also the romance needs better chemistry and a better male lead for it to work.

The sisters have a few good scenes but that's about it. They also sing which is their gig now. Looking for something to watch? Choose an adventure below and discover your next favorite movie or TV show.

This book gives you a huge dose of romance with no sex, just understanding, forgiveness and love. RaeAnne Thayne is an author I look for now when searching for a heartfelt romance that can take me on an emotional and rocky journey, but then fills my heart with love and happiness by the HEA.

I highly recommend this Christmas contemporary romance! Sep 24, booksofallkinds rated it it was amazing. For seven years Luke has raised his children alone wondering what really happened to his wife, whether she was gone forever, while some people suspected him of foul play.

But thanks to a friend, Luke has found Elizabeth living a brand new life without them but he is taking her home so they can all move on.

How could the woman he adored do this to them? Seven years ago, caught in a tortured web of depression and grief, Elizabeth didn't know who she was or what was happening in her life.

And when she remembered, she knew that she would destroy those she loved the most if she went back, so she left them behind. But always made sure to check in on them even when they didn't know it.

But now she can no longer hide away and when she returns home, Elizabeth and everyone around her will have to deal with the past and grieve for everything they have lost.

But is it too late to move on together? Elizabeth was so lost and I felt so sorry for everything that she went through as I got to know her more throughout the story.

But my heart also broke for Luke, the man who loved her so much, whom she walked away from and I completely understood his anger, and I admired his sense of compassion in listening when she needed him to.

The kids are amazing in this book and are really the stars of the show. This is tenth in the Haven Point series and includes lots of characters from those other stories.

Plus, this is the culmination of plot points that have threaded many of the other books as the disappearance of Luke's wife and the botched investigation has been key in many of their stories.

I definitely recommend reading those others first as a result. Also, while I haven't read the Brambleberry house series at all, it appears that Elizabeth has been hanging out there for the last seven years so This is tenth in the Haven Point series and includes lots of characters from those other stories.

Also, while I haven't read the Brambleberry house series at all, it appears that Elizabeth has been hanging out there for the last seven years so this is tagged as being the fifth in that series as well.

This story is heartbreaking and had a ton of potential. It's too bad that there's so much manipulation that warps the characters out of shape in the beginning and at the end.

In the beginning, we have Luke so angry that he shuts down anything Elizabeth has to say by way of explanation. He tells himself that there can be no excuse good enough so he hangs onto his silent anger.

We've seen for a long time now that he's a fundamentally kind and decent man, so it's good that Thayne makes that present and important even in this "angry" section.

He still takes care of her, even though he's very hurt at this part. But I just couldn't see shutting down every possible chance to have answers to questions that would burn no matter how much he believes they can't possibly make a difference.

This comes across as author manipulation because it goes against "anger" to shut down information. Anger would more typically lead one to seek more information, if only to give more fuel for the anger-fire to burn.

This is particularly true in a guy who is fundamentally kind because he'd seek that much more justification for something so against his nature.

I'm not sure what could cause someone to shut down Elizabeth's offer to answer questions, really. Indifference, maybe?

And we have a wonderful middle that had lots of feelz and more than a little healing and I always appreciate Thayne's handling of children though the tight timeframe of this story robs their daughter Cassie of a true character arc.

So my opinion was rising high and I had hopes that this would be another great four-star read in the series and by this author.

And then the late-stage pullback happened. It doesn't help that the actions prompted by that weird retrenchment worked against everything to that point.

And then it lead to the even more despicable trope of view spoiler [unilateral action on the part of one partner "for their own good" of the other hide spoiler ].

I hate that with such a raging passion that I nearly dropped this two stars. So this ends with a sad three stars that I never would have guessed it would after such a strong middle.

I still enjoyed the emotional catharsis. But with an undercurrent of disappointment that it squandered so much good groundwork in the end.

A note about Chaste : The emotional arc and strong emotional history of the characters doesn't admit to physical intimacy, despite that they have been and still are married.

I think Thayne does a fantastic job making that feel natural and with both yearning for their past intimacy but unable to reestablish it during the course of the story.

Lots of weight there and rightfully so. So you have some great kisses and a story I'd characterize as very chaste. Since it isn't, I'm going to save off this little jag to append to my reviews that feature the term.

Jennifer Crusie blogged about it a bit back or, if that link doesn't work, here's a cache of the original and it changed how I understand story.

The problem with the term is that if you've never heard it before, you'd assume it meant motivations that are harmful or immoral. Not so. What it refers to is motivations not to do something.

The thing is that many of us are motivated to not do things for a lot of different, perfectly valid and reasonable, reasons. The problem is that in a story motivations to not do things are a huge drag on the plot—particularly considering the fact that most negative motivations are overcome by the character simply deciding they don't care any more or, rather, that they do care and are now motivated to do the thing.

So not only do you have a counter to action but you also have a situation where to overcome it, all a character has to do is change their mind. Conflict drives story.

Conflict between a reader and a main character drives readers away from story. Jan 10, Mackey rated it liked it Shelves: books-read , fiction-general , holiday-themed , my-reviews , netgalley-ew.

RaeAnne Thayne is a well known, much loved romance author and her writing is wonderful. I cared immensely for all of the characters, Elizabeth and Luke, and their children.

Despite the fact that this is part of an ongoing series, there was enough backstory that I never felt lost or needed more information to comprehend what was going on with the main characters or those in the town.

My concern with the book is the story line itself and 3. My concern with the book is the story line itself and its lack of credibility.

Elizabeth was suffering from post-partum depression, severely, to the point that she became suicidal and thought that she would harm her baby.

Fleeing from her home, she eventually gets into an accident in which the driver was killed and Elizabeth was gravely injured, both physically and mentally.

After a very long rehabilitation from which she never fully recovered, she made the decision that it would be better for her family if she stayed away from them.

Meanwhile, Luke is going to be charged with her murder by the new hot-shot cop in town. The only way he can save himself is find answers about where Elizabeth is and why she stayed away.

What do you think? That works. Sep 26, Amy rated it it was amazing. Each book centers around a different couple but is 4.

She up and abandoned not only Luke, but also her young children and finally getting to hear about what lead up to her leaving was both fascinating and heartbreaking.

This one was so much more emotional than previous books, it was still sweet and cute but there was so much depth. It tackled some really tough and sometimes heavy issues with grace, I totally teared up a few times.

This series is the equivalent of watching a sweet and tender Hallmark movie, I always finish one of these books feeling warm, happy and totally content.

Highly recommended by me, especially if you like sweet, clean romances with tons of heart and that will restore your own faith in humanity by the end.

Dec 07, Shalini rated it it was amazing. This book was something more than a romance. It had mystery and intrigue, pain and pathos, forgiveness and second chance love.

Elizabeth was lost. She was lost for 7 years. One day she walked out of her home and never looked back. Luke her husband was to be arrested by the DA.

His friend investigated, found that Elizabeth was living as Sonia in Oregon. But she was so different. Luke rushed to get her back home to clear charges against him.

But would there be forgiveness after hea WOW!! But would there be forgiveness after hearing the story. My first book by author RaeAnne Thayne, the story was everything I loved about a romance and more.

Tears flooded my eyes when I realized I too was blaming the wrong person instead of fate and circumstances. Strength was written in ever word and love was the underlying emotion of every sentence.

Elizabeth and Luke both captured my heart with their honesty. Life showed them a different phase that they never signed up for.

And it was tough for them to climb back and find each other. The author sure did a wonderful job showing me that. I want to keep going on and on in praise of this book.

But I would end it here. I loved the book and it loved me back. One of my best midnight reads. Some books really can make me want to lose sleep.

Reading this book felt more important than sleep. Dec 10, Robin Loves Reading rated it it was amazing Shelves: books , pages , reading-challenge , romance , october-december , kindle , netgalley , challenge , robin-loves-readingchallenge , psychological-thriller.

Elizabeth made the ultimate sacrifice. Wracked with postpartum depression, she felt her young daughter, but especially her infant son were better off with her leaving.

This broke her heart, and that of her husband Luke. However, when Elizabeth left, she suffered a tragedy and had far more to cope with than ever could have been expected.

It is now seven years later, and Luke is furious, and wants her t In this incredibly touching story by RaeAnne Thayne, Elizabeth Hamilton finds her way home again.

It is now seven years later, and Luke is furious, and wants her to come back home and sign divorce papers once and for all. Things were not cut and dried, not by a longshot.

Elizabeth spends just enough time with Luke, Callie and Bridger to realize just how desperately she loves each and every one of them.

But, is it too late? It is now the Christmas season, and with all of the festivities, Luke and Elizabeth soon discover that their feelings never went away.

Can they all heal at this precious time for the sake of themselves and their family? This is a tender story that hits on a very real, a very serious and what has been for some, a very life-altering condition.

With two of my daughters having given birth this year, this subject of postpartum depression is discussed. Thayne handled this subject with delicacy and grace.

My hat is off to her. This is my honest opinion. I always expect an amazing book from this author, especially during the holidays.

This book…it was so much more for me. It grabbed my heart from the very first pages and never let go, even after I finished.

Thayne does a much better job than I ever could — but I can tell you some of the things I loved. What happens to Elizabeth Hamilton is devastating.

What starts as postpartum depression morphs into something so bad that it gutted I always expect an amazing book from this author, especially during the holidays.

What starts as postpartum depression morphs into something so bad that it gutted me. She sacrificed a life with her family, thinking they were better off without her.

And the children…OMG, your heart will embrace them, break for them, and joyously burst, all in the same book.

I loved how this family worked hard to come together again through their individual grief. I really was engaged from the start of the book, well past the end.

Coming Home for Christmas is a special holiday read. Nov 17, Aura rated it liked it Shelves: coming-home , romance , christmas , contemporary-romance.

This is my first Christmas themed book of and I enjoyed reading this number 10 in the series. This is a Harlequin romance and of course I read it because I want a comfortable, simple story with a happy ending.

It is a genre meant to make us feel good and tug at our heartstrings. In this respect, I enjoyed Coming home for Christmas. It is sweet and clean romance about a woman who abandons her family for a very good reason and now she has to make her way back into their hearts.

I hate to be This is my first Christmas themed book of and I enjoyed reading this number 10 in the series. I hate to be critical of a book because I did liked it but in the back of my mind while reading I kept cringing at the crazy plot.

There is depression, post partum depression, a car accident, amnesia, plastic surgery, Russian mail order brides, murder charges, FBI agent, seizures I like RaeAnne Thayne but she went a little crazy with this plot line.

But the timeline of this book only happens for several we 3. But the timeline of this book only happens for several weeks — during Christmas Season — as Luke and Elizabeth patch their relationship back, including Elizabeth forging new relationship with his children.

Although most of the reasons of what happened to Elizabeth was a daytime soap-ish far-fetched view spoiler [it involved car accident, mistaken identity, and amnesia hide spoiler ] BUT it started with postpartum depression, and I thought it was an important theme.

It shows how horrible it is. I don't have kids and I don't plan to have any and I can't imagine how debilitating it is. I hope that all mothers suffering from postpartum depression can get the help they need.

I thought Elizabeth was a strong heroine — despite what happened to her, she was able to get back on her feet again. It took a long time for her, but she never really gave up.

Meanwhile Luke was full of anger the first time — and some of the words he said were harsh. But after Luke learned what happened to his wife all those years ago, he was willing to step back from his resentment, and gave Elizabeth a chance.

No high rating is required for any ARC received. RaeAnne Thayne is an utter genius and this story performed a miracle on my heart.

The story opens up with Luke finally confronting her, and orders her to return home to Haven Point, in order to clear his name of murder. Coming Home for Christmas is a story I will never forget and the highlight of this series for me.

Feelings were never sugarcoated and a great deal of time was spent expressing the hurt and the scorn that the situation created when Elizabeth disappeared.

Luke did his best to protect his children but he was living an insulated life and only going through the motions to get by day by day.

She had to learn to not sell herself short and have courage to move forward with strength and patience. The epilogue was a nice touch because it showed the progress the family made together and that it did have highs and lows, and that they were dealing with it as a family.

I loved this story and my admiration for this author has greatly increased in awe of her writing talent. Review copy provided for a voluntary review.

How can a couple just reunited after 7 years of no contact, just because loooovvvee Very good second chance story that deals with some hard subjects.

Seven years earlier, Elizabeth walked out into the night and disappeared, leaving her husband and children behind.

Luke has dealt with being a single father as best he could, but it hasn't been easy. The whispers around town of why Elizabeth left and what happened to her have only gotten worse.

To complicate matters, Luke is about to be arrested and charged with her murder, even though there is no proof that she is dead.

On the co Very good second chance story that deals with some hard subjects. On the contrary, Luke has recently discovered that Elizabeth is alive and well, living in a town several hours away, so he goes to get her to clear his name.

I ached for both Luke and Elizabeth. At the time of her disappearance, Elizabeth was struggling with a double dose of depression.

First was the pain she felt after the deaths of her parents. Added to that was the severe postpartum depression that Elizabeth experienced after the birth of her second child.

Terrified that she would physically harm the baby, and convinced that they would all be better off without her, she left home.

Though it didn't take her long to realize she'd made a mistake and turn around to go back, fate intervened.

Elizabeth was involved in an accident that left her in a coma with extensive physical and mental injuries, including a loss of memory.

It was several years before her memory began to return, and each memory added to the guilt she felt. She wants to go back, but worries about if it's the right thing for her family.

Luke has never forgotten Elizabeth and grieved for her every day. He does his best with his kids, though he occasionally exhibits moments of frustration and guilt, such as when it comes to doing his daughter Cassie's hair.

He frequently blames himself for not seeing the depth of Elizabeth's problems thanks to his preoccupation with getting his business up and running.

He faces the rumors and innuendos stoically and keeps on living his life. When a friend with the FBI tracks down Elizabeth, Luke is furious that she's been so close without letting anyone know.

Now all he wants is to clear his name, get divorce papers signed, and try to move on with his life. The first encounter between Luke and Elizabeth is an emotional roller coaster.

She is stunned to find him at her door, demanding her immediate return to Haven Point. Even though she had planned to return soon, she feels unprepared to face everything now.

Luke is so furious that he refuses to listen to Elizabeth's attempts to explain, wanting only to get it over with.

He does all he can to keep her at an emotional distance. Though Luke's anger is understandable, I ached for Elizabeth when he refused to let her see the children.

It was satisfying to see Luke present Elizabeth to the DA and clear his name of her murder. I also liked seeing Luke's shock as he listened to everything Elizabeth had been through.

I loved how he lost his anger and became willing to let her back in their lives. It wasn't all unicorns and rainbows, though.

While Luke is ready to allow her to see and spend time with the kids, he is determined not to let her back into his heart. He was devastated when she left the first time and didn't want to go through it again if he allows himself to love her again.

Elizabeth never stopped loving Luke and the children, but she is still convinced that they are better off without her.

Because the people of the town need to know that Elizabeth is alive, she and Luke must make public appearances together. There are some very emotional and sometimes funny scenes as Elizabeth reconnects with her friends and neighbors.

There are also some painful scenes when Elizabeth spends time with Cassie and Bridger. Though Bridger comes around pretty quickly, Elizabeth's attempts to rebuild trust with Cassie do not go as smoothly.

There are also some fantastic family scenes. I especially enjoyed the snowball fight and the promise it showed.

As Luke and Elizabeth spend time together, it becomes clear that their feelings for each other are still there.

I enjoyed seeing them get to know each other as they are now. Elizabeth has trouble believing that Luke could forgive her enough to allow her back in their lives.

It wasn't easy, but with honesty and love, both Luke and Elizabeth were able to see that they belonged together. I loved their big moment at the end as they were finally able to open their hearts fully again.

The epilogue was terrific and honestly portrayed their progress and the challenges they still face.

Just not believable. Some spoilers below. Be warned. I am sorry, the minute I got my memories back I would go home. I would have given it five stars if that had happened.

Instead there were more years she wasn't taking care of her children. I understood why she left but honestly she would have gone back home sooner than later.

She was mentally ill and I can see being scared by her thoughts. And then She was hurt and had amnesia and okay, I will go with that.

After all it is fiction. But the rest Just not believable. But the rest was just not to my taste. The book was written very well.

I like this author. It is a seven year separation and the Father raised their kids. He was not nice to the heroine because he was angry but I would be too.

He did come around and I liked the reconciliation part of it. Just wish the heroine had sucked it up and gone home sooner. This guy was a true hero too.

Safe and no pornographic or any love scenes. I liked that for a change. This is the tenth book in the Haven Point series, but the first I have read.

I had no problems following this delightful story and it works well as a standalone Christmas story. What would you do if you were afraid that you would hurt your children?

If you were so depressed, that nothing seemed worth living for? I can't imagine that, but it doesn't mean that this is not something that happens to women suffering from postpartum depression.

Add in a car accident that steals your memories and your l This is the tenth book in the Haven Point series, but the first I have read.

Add in a car accident that steals your memories and your looks and it takes years to remember the family you left behind.

My heart went out to Elizabeth. As she began to remember her family, her guilt overwhelms her and she is afraid to make an overture to return to her family.

Sneaking in and out of town to watch her children grow up is all she thinks she has. When Luke is on the verge of being arrested and charged for her murder, he follows up on the information he has regarding her whereabouts and brings her back to Haven Point.

The only reason for this is to clear his name, get a divorce and move forward with his life, but the best laid plans go awry as he learns what caused her to flee as well as what happened after that.

Elizabeth is a woman who loves her children and does not want to disrupt their lives. She is a bit of a shadow in their lives and as much as she is living relatively happily in her new life, she is very sad about what she has left behind.

Bridger and Cassie were typical children. There was anger, mistrust, yet the love was there trying to come out.

This family grabbed my heart and wanted them to come together as a family. Add in some Christmas magic and you know something good is going to happen.

This story grabbed me right from the beginning and I was totally absorbed in the lives of the Hamiltons. The seriousness of postpartum depression and chronic pain and disability was handled in a very realistic way.

This is an issue that has been swept under the rug for years, yet is something that should be known about and discussed.

Since it isn't, I'm going to save off this little jag to append to my reviews that feature the term. Jennifer Crusie blogged about it a bit back or, if that link doesn't work, here's a cache of the original and it changed how I understand story.

The problem with the term is that if you've never heard it before, you'd assume it meant motivations that are harmful or immoral. Not so. What it refers to is motivations not to do something.

The thing is that many of us are motivated to not do things for a lot of different, perfectly valid and reasonable, reasons.

The problem is that in a story motivations to not do things are a huge drag on the plot—particularly considering the fact that most negative motivations are overcome by the character simply deciding they don't care any more or, rather, that they do care and are now motivated to do the thing.

So not only do you have a counter to action but you also have a situation where to overcome it, all a character has to do is change their mind.

Conflict drives story. Conflict between a reader and a main character drives readers away from story. Jan 10, Mackey rated it liked it Shelves: books-read , fiction-general , holiday-themed , netgalley-ew , my-reviews.

RaeAnne Thayne is a well known, much loved romance author and her writing is wonderful. I cared immensely for all of the characters, Elizabeth and Luke, and their children.

Despite the fact that this is part of an ongoing series, there was enough backstory that I never felt lost or needed more information to comprehend what was going on with the main characters or those in the town.

My concern with the book is the story line itself and 3. My concern with the book is the story line itself and its lack of credibility.

Elizabeth was suffering from post-partum depression, severely, to the point that she became suicidal and thought that she would harm her baby.

Fleeing from her home, she eventually gets into an accident in which the driver was killed and Elizabeth was gravely injured, both physically and mentally.

After a very long rehabilitation from which she never fully recovered, she made the decision that it would be better for her family if she stayed away from them.

Meanwhile, Luke is going to be charged with her murder by the new hot-shot cop in town. The only way he can save himself is find answers about where Elizabeth is and why she stayed away.

What do you think? That works. Sep 26, Amy rated it it was amazing. Each book centers around a different couple but is 4. She up and abandoned not only Luke, but also her young children and finally getting to hear about what lead up to her leaving was both fascinating and heartbreaking.

This one was so much more emotional than previous books, it was still sweet and cute but there was so much depth.

It tackled some really tough and sometimes heavy issues with grace, I totally teared up a few times. This series is the equivalent of watching a sweet and tender Hallmark movie, I always finish one of these books feeling warm, happy and totally content.

Highly recommended by me, especially if you like sweet, clean romances with tons of heart and that will restore your own faith in humanity by the end.

Dec 07, Shalini rated it it was amazing. This book was something more than a romance. It had mystery and intrigue, pain and pathos, forgiveness and second chance love.

Elizabeth was lost. She was lost for 7 years. One day she walked out of her home and never looked back. Luke her husband was to be arrested by the DA.

His friend investigated, found that Elizabeth was living as Sonia in Oregon. But she was so different.

Luke rushed to get her back home to clear charges against him. But would there be forgiveness after hea WOW!! But would there be forgiveness after hearing the story.

My first book by author RaeAnne Thayne, the story was everything I loved about a romance and more. Tears flooded my eyes when I realized I too was blaming the wrong person instead of fate and circumstances.

Strength was written in ever word and love was the underlying emotion of every sentence. Elizabeth and Luke both captured my heart with their honesty.

Life showed them a different phase that they never signed up for. And it was tough for them to climb back and find each other.

The author sure did a wonderful job showing me that. I want to keep going on and on in praise of this book. But I would end it here.

I loved the book and it loved me back. One of my best midnight reads. Some books really can make me want to lose sleep. Reading this book felt more important than sleep.

Elizabeth made the ultimate sacrifice. Wracked with postpartum depression, she felt her young daughter, but especially her infant son were better off with her leaving.

This broke her heart, and that of her husband Luke. However, when Elizabeth left, she suffered a tragedy and had far more to cope with than ever could have been expected.

It is now seven years later, and Luke is furious, and wants her t In this incredibly touching story by RaeAnne Thayne, Elizabeth Hamilton finds her way home again.

It is now seven years later, and Luke is furious, and wants her to come back home and sign divorce papers once and for all.

Things were not cut and dried, not by a longshot. Elizabeth spends just enough time with Luke, Callie and Bridger to realize just how desperately she loves each and every one of them.

But, is it too late? It is now the Christmas season, and with all of the festivities, Luke and Elizabeth soon discover that their feelings never went away.

Can they all heal at this precious time for the sake of themselves and their family? This is a tender story that hits on a very real, a very serious and what has been for some, a very life-altering condition.

With two of my daughters having given birth this year, this subject of postpartum depression is discussed.

Thayne handled this subject with delicacy and grace. My hat is off to her. This is my honest opinion. I always expect an amazing book from this author, especially during the holidays.

This book…it was so much more for me. It grabbed my heart from the very first pages and never let go, even after I finished.

Thayne does a much better job than I ever could — but I can tell you some of the things I loved. What happens to Elizabeth Hamilton is devastating.

What starts as postpartum depression morphs into something so bad that it gutted I always expect an amazing book from this author, especially during the holidays.

What starts as postpartum depression morphs into something so bad that it gutted me. She sacrificed a life with her family, thinking they were better off without her.

And the children…OMG, your heart will embrace them, break for them, and joyously burst, all in the same book.

I loved how this family worked hard to come together again through their individual grief. I really was engaged from the start of the book, well past the end.

This is my first Christmas themed book of and I enjoyed reading this number 10 in the series. This is a Harlequin romance and of course I read it because I want a comfortable, simple story with a happy ending.

It is a genre meant to make us feel good and tug at our heartstrings. In this respect, I enjoyed Coming home for Christmas. It is sweet and clean romance about a woman who abandons her family for a very good reason and now she has to make her way back into their hearts.

I hate to be This is my first Christmas themed book of and I enjoyed reading this number 10 in the series. I hate to be critical of a book because I did liked it but in the back of my mind while reading I kept cringing at the crazy plot.

There is depression, post partum depression, a car accident, amnesia, plastic surgery, Russian mail order brides, murder charges, FBI agent, seizures I like RaeAnne Thayne but she went a little crazy with this plot line.

But the timeline of this book only happens for several we 3. But the timeline of this book only happens for several weeks — during Christmas Season — as Luke and Elizabeth patch their relationship back, including Elizabeth forging new relationship with his children.

Although most of the reasons of what happened to Elizabeth was a daytime soap-ish far-fetched view spoiler [it involved car accident, mistaken identity, and amnesia hide spoiler ] BUT it started with postpartum depression, and I thought it was an important theme.

It shows how horrible it is. I don't have kids and I don't plan to have any and I can't imagine how debilitating it is.

I hope that all mothers suffering from postpartum depression can get the help they need. I thought Elizabeth was a strong heroine — despite what happened to her, she was able to get back on her feet again.

It took a long time for her, but she never really gave up. Meanwhile Luke was full of anger the first time — and some of the words he said were harsh.

I enjoyed this well-written and plotted story and will definitely be reading more books in this series. The publisher, HQN Books, provided me with an ebook upon my request.

The rating, ideas and opinions shared are my own. She does a nice job with the narration and voices.

The voices for the males were more female sounding that other books I have listened to, but I was able to identify them when they were speaking.

This book felt like it was being read to me, with great expression and feeling. I really enjoyed this reading and it added to my enjoyment of this book.

The publisher, Harlequin Audio, provided me with a copy of this audiobook upon my request. Sep 24, Siobhan rated it really liked it. As with each of the books in the series, this one works perfectly fine as a standalone novel.

There were plenty of possibilities, and I was eager to see what the reality of the situation would be.

With Coming Home for Christmas, we got that truth. It did not disappoint, ensuring I was hooked throughout.

As is often the case with RaeAnne Thayne, I completed this one in a single sitting as I did not want to put it down.

It deals with a serious topic well, whilst offering a light story that is easy to follow. I felt a few things were a bit too easy towards the end, but as a whole it hooked me.

Without a doubt, fans of the Haven Point series need to give this one a read. One dark night Luke's wife Elizabeth stumbled out of her house lost in the fog of a deep dark depression.

The night was cold and snowy, and she wasn't heard of again. What happened to her? Did she die? Has she chosen another life and family?

Luke has always wondered as he has spent the seven intervening years being a wonderful Dad to his daughter Cassie and son Bridger.

When by some miracle she is found and returns to their lives it is with very mixed and varied feelings on all their parts.

What One dark night Luke's wife Elizabeth stumbled out of her house lost in the fog of a deep dark depression.

What has happened to Elizabeth in the meantime? Can they all find their way back to each other or is the divorce Luke plans the most effective way to deal.

Needless to say this story grabbed me and I read it every chance I had. It's sad and yet so very heart warming as well. Luke is a fantastic Dad and he has done such a great job of raising his two children.

Elizabeth has been through a lot, yet is such a compassionate, loving person. A perfect Christmas read.

So he goes to get his wife who ran away from the house, as she was suffering from postpartum depression at the time, but when she didn't return home and stayed away, he presumed she was dead.

That's why he is hostile towards her when he discovers that she has been alive all this time and didn't return home for seven long years.

Elizabeth has been through hell and back, with the accident and the reality is completely different from what Luke is imagining. Elizabeth can't get enough glances at her family from afar, she wants to see them and wants her life back but that doesn't seem likely to happen.

When Luke comes to get her, she is shocked to learn that Luke is in trouble because of her disappearance and the truth is far from what everyone has been assuming about him.

She is all ready to clear the misunderstanding and wants to help her family and protect them with everything she has.
