    1. While part of a very long series of Christmas-themed romances, the only predecessor with any effect on the story is The Christmas Ranch. Okay, that's not entirely true. Half the novel had pop-ins from previous couples and that was more than a little annoying. Also, this story is tons better than that book, so it’s sad how much setup is there that this story leans on. So I kind of hate having to encourage others to endure that one to fully appreciate this one. Maybe stop at ¾ in like I did?Thi [...]

    2. A feel good romance that was just not for me. Not bad characters, but, I kept waiting for the end and then there is a second book I did not go onto.

    3. I’ll admit I started A Cold Creek Christmas Story with a bit of trepidation due to it being the 14th in a series (about Cowboys??) that I had yet to start. I am so glad that I didn’t let that deter me! Lately I’ve been on a bit of a romance kick and RaeAnne Thayne has definitely made my list of new favorite authors.Thayne delivers in the charming tale about a father and daughter in need of some holiday healing and the amazing town and family that embrace them and make them one of theirs.As [...]

    4. Such weakness I have with Christmas stories that involved single dads *sigh* and the latest offering from Thayne's Harlequin SSE, A Cold Creek Christmas Story just hit me in all the right places. This is the second story of the Nichols sisters and book #14 on Thayne's Cold Creek Cowboy series; although rest assured, you will be fine if you haven't read the previous 13 books.I admit, Celeste is written as a bit stereotypical -- a meek, shy, introverted librarian. Like all librarians are introvert [...]

    5. This is such a well written and emotional story. It will make you feel like you are right there in Cold Creek with them getting ready for the Christmas season. The characters will just draw you in. The story will make you laugh and cry. It will show you what is important for the Christmas season. I loved every minute of it and hated to see it end. As a bonus you also get to read A Cold Creek Christmas another amazing and wonderful Christmas story. It will help put you in the mood for the Christm [...]

    6. A,sweet Christmas story about a librarian and a father trying to help his little girl recover from a trauma. It's a bit rushed, but an enjoyable read.

    7. I enjoyed listening to this Christmas story, really sweet for this time of year. I liked the narration, saw some saying on Audible they didn't like it, but suited me fine.

    8. I was so delighted when I found this book on my kindle while searching for something good to read and equally disappointed that I have not read it yet. Reading Thayne book now feels like coming home to me. It's always filled with magic and warm fuzziness that stays with me long after I am done with the book and A Cold Creek Christmas Story was no exception.The book follows Celeste, who lives in the comfort of Pine Gulch Idaho, with a very sad past, who writes children's books for a living. Her r [...]

    9. 2015 Reading Challenge: a book set during Christmas3.5 stars but I'm happily rounding up because this was just really sweet and cute.Olivia was adorable, and she happens to be the same age as my niece so I thought she was written realistically. Maybe the whole story and the writing was a little too syrupy-sweet for even my tastes (and that's saying A LOT, because I embrace cheesiness) but hey, I am willing to handwave a lot at Christmas.Also, I felt like the ending could have been done better. ( [...]

    10. This was a really good book. I enjoyed it very much. Celeste writes a children's book and it becomes a huge hit. She lives in Pine Gulch, Idaho. Their story has many twists and turns. She falls for millionaire Flynn Delaney. He is back in Pine Gulch with his daughter that is healing after losing her mother. I loved all the characters in this book. Great Christmas read!! Read this wonderful book from RaeAnne Thayne for all the details, you won't want to miss this one!!

    11. RaeAnne Thayne warms our hearts again with another beloved Christmas tale in A Cold Creek Christmas Story. You will fall in love with Flynn Delaney and his adorable daughter, Olivia.Flynn has returned to Pine Gulch, Idaho to settle his grandmother's estate to, hopefully, heal his young daughter's heart after a terrible tragedy.

    12. RaeAnne Thayne has done it again. A Cold Creek Christmas Story is a wonderful story. It will fill you with the Christmas spirit. I really enjoyed this book and catching up with the Nichols sisters. I am looking forward to more stories about this family.Celeste has been through a lot in her life and now she is faced with making some big decisions about her books that she wrote for her nieces and nephews. Flynn has returned to his grandmother’s home in Pine Gulch to close out his past and try to [...]

    13. This was a short quick emotional read. Celeste is a small town librarian and when she was younger she went through being held captive in Columbia. She writes children's books and is content with her life until her childhood crush Flynn shows up. Flynn brings his daughter Olivia back home to help her heal from a terrible tragedy. Her mothers boyfriend shot her mother and her and then killed himself. Olivia survived but mentally and physically she still has work to do. I liked how this story was e [...]

    14. I was expecting a romance but this story is more about a woman who had a terrifying experience as a child helping a child recovering from the experience of being critically hurt and seeing her mom killed. The story between the child (Olivia) and Celeste (small town librarian/children's book author) is sweet and well written. The romance between the child's father (Flynn) and Celeste is almost absent from the book. There was a kiss, an apology, an angry comment, an apology and poof a happy ending [...]

    15. I love this series and RaeAnne Thayne did not disappoint me with her latest book. Celeste Nichols is a librarian who is also a children's author. Her latest book, Sparkle and the Magic Snowball is going to be made into a movie. This money will help her sisters to save the family's Christmas Ranch and the Star N Ranch. Flynn Delaney has returned to sell his grandmother's house. He has also brought his daughter, Olivia. Olivia is recovering from having witnessed her mom's boyfriend shooting her mo [...]

    16. Obviously, I'm the outlier here but this book gagged me. The sooooper sweet, self-sacrificing heroine was my first clue, then the tragically motherless girl child and her morbidly sad daddy (hello, we need a team of therapists). Too much, too much, I give up! I know I'm making light, but there is a limit to piling on the FICTIONAL misery. Narrator Celeste Ciulla reads in a cloying syrupy voice that ground on my last nerve. Ugh. DNF.

    17. I'm so tired of men in books who divide women into fun-time girls and marrying girls. Even though I can relate more to the latter than the former, it's still insulting to women and shame on authors for continuing this whore/madonna approach to women. Sorry, I know it's typical of romances and this one is no worse than any other, but it hit me while I was reading this that even in the year 2017 we are still treating some women as disposable sex partners and others are put on a pedestal. I think I [...]

    18. An Unexpected Christmas PresentCeleste Nichols wasn't one for spotlights. She was happy in her position as children's librarian in her home town. Holidays, pressure to sign over movie rights of the book she and her sister recently published, and now the presence of Flynn Delancy, tossed her in a frenzy. Add to her growing number of stresses, Flynn came with a traumatized daughter who bonded with Celeste through her book, Sprinkle and the Magic Snowballs.Misunderstandings, pressures and decisions [...]

    19. 3.5 stars. A Cold Creek Christmas Story is a sweet, heartwarming romance that follows last year’s The Christmas Ranch. It’s a very quick read, but charming and warm.Shy librarian and children’s book writer Celeste Nichols never expected her Christmas story about a reindeer named Sparkle to become a national bestseller, let alone be offered a movie contract, and she’s not really comfortable with the fame. Celeste is happiest living a quiet life — although she loves her job as a children [...]

    20. An Idaho librarian finds herself a best seller after a children's story she penned about a little reindeer takes off. Her sister who illustrated the story wants to jump at the chance of selling film rights, in order to pay off the family ranch mortgage, but the shyer author can't quite commit as she is still stunned by her fame. With Christmas approaching the sisters think of others and especially one man who has come here with his young daughter after the death of his wife. The little girl was [...]

    21. Let's go to Pine Gulch, Idaho for ChristmasCeleste Nichols, children's librarian, looks up during story time and sees Flynn Delaney, bringing back memories of the huge crush she'd had on Flynn when she was a young teenager. Flynn is at the library with his seven year-old daughter, Olivia. Olivia wants to meet Celeste because the small-town librarian is also a well-known author of children's books about Sparkle the reindeer - and Olivia LOVES Sparkle.Flynn is in town temporarily, cleaning out his [...]

    22. I love visiting Pine Gulch, especially the sisters at Star N ranch. Celeste is wrestling with the idea of her Sparkle book becoming a movie.She meets a little girl named Olivia who was shot and watched her mom die, the little girls dad is Flynn Delaney, her crush from when she was 13 and crashed her bike in front of his grandmas house. Flynn and Olivia are in Pine Gulch to clean out his grandmothers home and get it ready to sell. Flynn is extremely over protective of Olivia, even with the librar [...]

    23. I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.This story captivated me from the beginning because Celeste’s career is where I hope mine is headed one day. It was great to hear about the process of her going from a shy librarian writing stories for her family and later becoming a literary celebrity. But anyone who isn’t interested by that story arc is sure to sit up when her handsome childhood crush comes along with his wounded child. I think it’s most women’s fantasy t [...]

    24. I won this book In a giveaway. This book was very heartfelt and festive. I enjoyed it very much, and would recommend this read! I would read this author again!

    25. Wanted a Christmas book to listen to in the car during my last week of work before break. it's a little cheesy so farah, it was cheesy.

    26. This book is why you can never go wrong with a book from RaeAnne Thayne! Her books are uplifting and beautiful!

    27. I love the background of this story, first Celeste Nichols who prefers to just keep to herself but her published book became a major success. Enters Flynn Delaney who is returning back home for his motherless child to his town hoping that the change will bring joy to his daughter. The town’s librarian and her story telling seem to bring out a positive change in his daughter and sparks flies. What a wonderful Christmas story.

    28. Heartwarming RaeAnne Thayne's heartwarming story brings the hope, love, and healing into one magical story. The warmth of each character brings such depth and magic to this book.
