A Cold Creek Secret by Raeanne Thayne Book Review
This is the kind of romance novel that makes you sigh in wonderment. One of the best romance novels I have had the pleasure of reading. I couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen next, and there are plenty of cliffhangers that will leave you salivating.
Here’s a bit about the novel:
Mimi Van Hoyt desperately needs to talk with her ex-step mother. However the timing couldn’t be more inconvenient since she finds herself caught in the midst of an Idaho snow storm. She crashes her car into a creek where she is basically knocked unconscious. Lucky for her Major Brant Western is home on leave and sees the accident. What he thought would be a relaxing week off from duty turns out to be a rescue mission. He pulls Mimi from the wreckage and as the snow keeps falling they are forced to take shelter with each other in Brant’s ranch home.
The last thing famous socialite Mimi wants is for her identity to be revealed, especially under the circumstances she is in. She takes on the identity of Maura Howard hoping that nobody will recognize her. The last thing she wants to be known for is the silly socialite the tabloids portray her to be. With plenty of careless antics she has found herself caught in over the years she can’t help but to be thrilled at being someone other than herself if even for a short time.
Major Brant Western knows all about her real identity, but goes along with her fibs to placate her. What does he care if she wants to be someone else? Their time will be limited, and the story of spending time with none other than Mimi Van Hoyt will make a great story for his army buddies.
However forced to live under the same roof they begin to develop feelings for each other. Brant soon realizes that there is more to Mimi than meets the eye. Each person is too stubborn to admit feelings for each other, and there are plenty of obstacles in their way which doesn’t seem to help matters.
Will they ever be able to come together, or are their two worlds just too far apart to bring this unlikely couple together?
The story plot is excitingly unexpected. Not your normal romance read considering the two characters being thrust together is an army Major and a socialite celebrity. It was pleasantly surprising, as were the characters. Just when I thought I had figured out the characters personalities something happened to surprise me. For me it was a quick read, mainly because I just could not put it down. I couldn’t wait to see what would unfold next in the plot, and what the characters would do next.
The writing style was comfortable and flowed very easily. Everything was easy to imagine, and felt so real. I fell in love with all the characters depicted, and I highly recommend this novel to any fellow romance reader looking for a great read.
