IS THERE REALLY SUCH A THING AS A LIFE-CHANGING KISS?
FROM NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BESTSELLER
ON SALE: July 2017
In the town of Haven Point, love can be just a wish — and one magical kiss — away…
Computer-tech millionaire Bowie Callahan is about the last person that schoolteacher Katrina Bailey wants to work for. As far as she can see, he’s arrogant, entitled and not up to the task of caring for his young half brother, Milo. But Kat is, especially if it brings her closer to her goal of adopting an orphaned little girl. And as her kindness and patience work wonders with Milo, she realises there’s more to sexy, wary Bo.
Bo never imagined he’d be tasked with caring for a sibling he didn’t know existed. Then again, he never pictured himself impulsively kissing vibrant, compassionate Katrina in the moonlight. Now he’s ready to make her dream of family come true…and hoping there’s room in it for him, too.
My Rating - 4 stars!
This is the first book I got to read by RaeAnne Thayne. Being a fan of small town romance fan, I immediately clicked accept for this review and I am glad I did because I absolutely loved it! This is the 6th installment in the series but it can be read as standalone.
Serenity Harbor is a story of Katrina Bailey, a school teacher and Bowie Callahan, computer tech genius. Bowie's six year old brother Milo works as faith and gets these two from different worlds together. Milo has autism and Bo has no idea how to deal with little kids let alone with one with special needs even though he loves him dearly. So when Kat comes into their lives, Bo is desperate and ready to do anything to hire her as a nanny until autism specialist arrives in few weeks. What started strictly as temporary, Bowie isn't sure either he or Milo is ready to part with her just yet.
Katrina Bailey is not like her old self as much as people in the town still believe her to be. After going to South America and meeting Gabi, she feels like she has found the meaning to her life and needs to do everything to adopt her daughter. She is back in town for her sister, Wyona's wedding and wants to go back to adopt Gabi as soon as possible to give her daughter a proper life. But until then she can't help but accept the job to look after Milo. Milo wins her heart soon enough and so does his older brother Bowie. The struggle gets real when its time to leave.
It was a sweet and clean romance. Kat is really good with the kids and she proves that people can change for better. I really enjoyed reading Kat and Bo's story and the cameo's of other characters has me intrigued wanting to read all the previous stories. I recommend it to all who enjoy Jill Shalvis, Robyn Carr, Kristen Higgins and Nora Roberts kind of authors.

New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author RaeAnne Thayne loves words. Her love affair started as soon as she learned to read, when she used to devour anything she could get her hands on: cereal boxes, encyclopedias, the phone book, you name it! She loves the way words sound, the way they look on the page and the amazing way they can be jumbled together in so many combinations to tell a story. Her love of reading and writing those words led her to a fifteen-year career in journalism as a newspaper reporter and editor. Through it all, she dreamed of writing the kind of stories she loved best. She sold her first book in 1995 and since then she’s published more than 40 titles. Her books have won many honors, including three RITA® Award nominations from the Romance Writers of America and a Career Achievement Award from RT Book Reviews.
