Snowflakes and Coffee Cakes

By Joanne DeMaio 
Vera returns to her New England hometown for her sister’s winter wedding. However, since her career as a big city reporter has ended she is considering staying in the quaint town. It is decided when she comes across an old country house and barn. There are many things to be repaired in the badly neglected property.  Undeterred, Vera uses her severance pay to buy the old run down place.

Vera obviously has a lot of repairs to deal with. She meets Derek at the hardware store, who quickly becomes her helper and friend. Their friendship grows as she relies on his knowledge and expertise.

During the renovation of the barn Vera discovers a secret. As the story unfolds, so does a secret and its importance to many in the town. Not only will it affect the town and its people, but also Derek. 

This is Joanne DeMaio’s third book. Her novels are as warm and sweet as the titles imply. She does not disappoint. They are a treat.

  1. My girlfriend's nickname is Snowflake so of course I had to read your post. It sounds like a pleasant read so I will buy the book for her. Tell me do you think it is romantic enough to give as a valentine's gift?


  2. I can't believe Joanne has already published THREE books, in less time than it took for me to write ONE! LOL. I've been wanting to read all of her books, so I better get started on the first one pretty soon! Thanks for a great review!


  3. Sounds like a good read! Going on my list! That notion from the book of up and moving to a new town appeals to me. It always has…wonder what that means? 🙂

    Thank you for the enticing review!
