All Is Bright
 is a sweet holiday contemporary romance by RaeAnne Thayne.

Mason Tucker is renovating his new home in Hope’s Bay to accommodate his new reality as a wheelchair user. Two years ago, he lost his wife and unborn baby in a plane crash that left him an ambulatory wheelchair user and single father. He never expects to fall in love again, especially not with the architect heading the renovation. She’s only in town for a short while to wrap up the project but the two have been building feelings since the beginning and can’t ignore their growing feelings.

She wanted him. He didn’t know why or how she possibly could. He only knew he couldn’t resist the pull of her another moment.

I feel in love with grumpy Mason. He was still emotionally and physically healing from something traumatic, and on top of that was juggling being a single parent and dealing with his tempestuous relationship with his estranged mother. The last thing he has time for is falling in love. I enjoyed Sage too, she made some mistakes in her past, but she’s genuinely a good-hearted person. I was really happy that we were given both Mason and Sage’s POV it helped strengthen my connection to both of them. Their romance is sweet and slow and nothing but heartwarming.

Sage McKnight was not a woman a man could kiss and then forget.

There is also a secondary romance thrown into the mix. I enjoyed Taryn’s POV and her friends to lovers romance with her childhood friend Charlie. Unfortunately we only get her POV and their story is rushed. They really should have it their own book and received full attention and dual POV. It could have been emotional and beautiful, and I really think it was a missed opportunity.

Overall All Is Bright by RaeAnne Thayne was a charming small town holiday romance with low steam, family, hot chocolates and snow man building, helping others and satisfying happily ever after.
