Mini-Review: Sunrise Cabin by Stacey Donovan

Thursday, March 14


Dylan’s an overworked investment banker. Paige is a free-spirited first-grade teacher. From the first time they meet, these two opposites attract.  Meanwhile, the cabin Paige is renting has gone up for sale. She loves living there, and she just might be able to buy it—if she finally achieves her dream of selling her children’s stories. When she learns Dylan is also determined to buy the cabin, their new romance turns into a real estate rivalry.
Dylan could tell her about his own connection to the place…but that would mean opening up about his past. As his relationship with Paige goes from funny to touching, they both discover more about love, hope, and the true meaning of home.

The Bottom Line:  I love the consistency in these Hallmark books!  I knew when I dove into this book, I would get likeable characters, a decent plot without too much crazy or drama, and a happily ever after that is both deserved and ever so sweet.  I think what I liked most about this book is the setting, the actual cabin.  The cabin becomes something of a living thing as Dylan and Paige try and work out who is going to be the owner of the cabin.  The history and age of the cabin become very real aspects of the read and absolutely impact both Dylan and Paige.  While it isn’t a massive home or super expensive property, it is an entity filled with love, laughter, and so much promise for the future. While the cabin remains steady and strong, Dylan and Paige have to work through a whole host of issues both personally and professionally to get to their HEA.  While I enjoyed Dylan quite a bit (especially his awesome job exit!) I found Paige a bit hard to really like; I tend to struggle with characters like Paige who are as naively optimistic as she is.  Paige’s personality is my only real complaint about this otherwise charming and sweet read.
