Lose yourself in the magic, charm and romance of Christmas in the Pacific Northwest as imagined in JoAnn Ross’s heartwarming Honeymoon Harbor series. 

Growing up on the wrong side of the tracks, Jolene Harper is forever indebted to the mother who encouraged her to fly—all the way to sunny LA and a world away from Honeymoon Harbor. Although Jolene vowed never to look back, returning home isn’t even a question when her mom faces a cancer scare. Which means running into Aiden Mannion all over town, the first boy she ever loved—and lost—and whom she can barely look in the eye.

Aiden’s black-sheep reputation may have diminished when he joined the marines, but everything he’s endured since has left him haunted. Back in Honeymoon Harbor to heal, he’s talked into the interim role of police chief, and the irony isn’t lost on the locals, least of all Aiden. But seeing Jolene after all these years is the unexpected breath of fresh air he’s been missing. He’s never forgotten her through all his tours, but he’s not sure anymore that he’s the man she deserves.

Despite the secret they left between them all those years ago, snow is starting to fall on their picturesque little town, making anything seem possible…maybe even a second chance at first love.

Liza's Review:

Snowfall on Lighthouse Lane is the latest release from JoAnn Ross's Honeymoon Harbor series. I love a good second chance romance story, and Ms. Ross did an amazing job in Snowfall on Lighthouse Lane.

I adored seeing Jolene and Aiden reconnect even as they initially tried to avoid each other when they were both home for a wedding previously. I think part of what I liked best about them reconnecting was the fact they started back as friends first. As they hadn't seen each other in years and never kept up with one another, it really worked for me that they slowly moved from friendship to more. Their relationship totally worked for me and was so very fun to watch it grow and become more.

However, my favorite part of the entire story was the relationship between Jolene and her mother, Gloria. I'm a huge fan of the show Gilmore Girls and I adored how much both women loved the show and really seemed to be so much like Lorelei and Rory. Their relationship gave me all the happy feels and was every bit as important to the story as the romance was to the story. I love when there is a secondary story that only adds to the main story of a book, and if felt like Jolene's relationship with her mom was every bit as important and her romance with Aiden.

Snowfall on Lighthouse Lane was a really beautiful story. Both the romance and the strong relationship between mother and daughter were so very well done.  I've read books by JoAnn Ross for years, yet had missed her last few releases. I have to say after reading her newest story; I have gone back and added all missed books to my to-be-read list. I highly recommend adding books by JoAnn Ross to your list of books to read if you enjoy reading emotional and uplifting stories.
