One very special place.
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 explain 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 learn more about love and the true meaning of home.

Sunset Cabin is a sweet upbeat story of two people who meet in a coffee shop and are instantly attracted to each other. Paige has a look at life from a glass half full viewpoint starting out each sunrise at her rented cabin naming everyone and everything for which she is grateful. She is a first grade teacher and a writer of unpublished children's books. Dylan works in the banking industry and makes good money. Paige drops in the coffee shop to purchase cupcakes for one of student's birthday knowing that the child's parents would not send a snack to celebrate. When the price is more than she expected, Dylan steps up to buy the cupcakes for her. The child's situation is similar to his own growing up. His mother died when he was three years old and his father retreated into himself, meeting the needs of his two children but barely. He is touched by Paige's caring. Both of them left the coffee shop not exchanging phone numbers but keep thinking of each other and hoping to meet up again. They have a chance meeting again at the shop and develop a friendship. The owner of Paige's cabin is an older man who decides to sell his house next door and the cabin so that he can move to be near his daughter. Paige would love to buy the cabin if she could afford it. If she could sell her books to a publisher, she would be able to buy it. Unbeknownst to her, Dylan also has a connection to the cabin. His grandparents owned it before the current owner bought it. Dylan and his sister, Dee, spent many happy summers there. Dylan is also interested in buying it when it goes on the market. When Paige finds out, she is devastated. Will this tear them apart? Who should be able to buy it? Paige is living in it and loves it. Dylan's family once owned it. He can afford it but it would mean an end to their friendship that is growing into some than a friendship. This is a story of redemption, forgiveness, hope and discovering what is important in life. Their relationship is a meshing of two different people who are a positive effect on each other. Her upbeat outlook shows Dylan that he doesn't have to work at a job where he dislikes his boss, some of his co-workers, and even some of the work even though he is making great money and on the track to making VP. I enjoyed this lovely story and seeing how the issues are resolved. I received a complimentary ARC from Hallmark Publishing through NetGalley. The opinions stated are mine only.
I’m so excited about Hallmark Publishing’s new line of original novels (as opposed to novelizations of their movies), and Sunrise Cabin is a great one to start with! Clean, cute, sweet and romantic – I highly recommend it! The heroine Paige is just adorable, and I’d love to see her come to life on the screen at some point. Her fun spirit, generous heart and intentional gratefulness are incredibly endearing, and her enthusiasm for whatever she’s throwing herself into – whether it be cupcakes for her students, her books that she’s writing, or the relationships she’s in – is infectious. Dylan is just about exactly the opposite – driven to succeed, career-focused, money is no real object. Yet they do share strong values as well as a solid family support system, and each has a sentimental side. A beautiful setting, endearing characters, a budding romance… all of these elements mix together to deliver a really enjoyable story from start to finish. Of course it’s not without its black moments, but these are handled with authenticity and believe-ability. The character growth in both Paige and Dylan warms the heart, and there are plenty of moments to swoon, grin, and giggle. Recommended for fans of Melissa Tagg, RaeAnne Thayne, and Debbie Macomber.
What could a teacher with a sunny disposition and a successful, yet unsatisfied businessman have in common? Why, a quaint little cabin in the woods, of course! I loved how Paige began her mornings with gratitude, listing what she was most thankful for, while watching the sunrise. Also, she loved colorful things, from nature to clothing. She also loved life and Paige's joy often spread to those around her. Dylan's growing relationship with Paige encouraged him to seek healing and rebuild damaged relationships. He became more tender hearted and joy began re-entering his days, his attitude and his life. Paige loved her quaint, rental cabin and it had become her dream home. Dylan was drawn to the cabin by warm memories and happier times. As the cabin became available to purchase, things between Paige and Dylan became complicated and strained. Will their relationship survive a situation where there can be only one winner? Or, is there a way for both Dylan and Paige to win? Paige and Dylan learned that sometimes we receive blessings that are even better than anything we dare to wish or pray for. Thank-you to NetGalley and Hallmark Publishing for a copy of this delightful book.
I have eagerly looked forward to reading Sunrise Cabin, the first original fiction novel from Hallmark Publishing. I was not disappointed! Sunrise Cabin is pure delight! Stacey Donovan has created a wonderful story about two very different people whose only connection is their shared love for a cabin. First-grade teacher Paige loves her students, loves teaching, is creative and fun! She has rented the cabin for several years and wants to buy it, but on a teacher’s salary, that’s a tough proposition. Dylan, on the other hand, is an uptight investment banker who harbors a secret desire for a simpler life...and he has the means to buy the the cabin that used to belong to his grandparents. But who deserves it more? This story will keep you turning the pages from the opening lines to the closing credits. Plus, it includes a recipe for awesome-sounding Sunday Muffins. Thank you NetGalley and Hallmark Publishing for providing this ARC. This is my honest review of Sunrise Cabin. #Hallmark Publishing
Sunrise Cabin is a sweet, clean, feel-good Hallmark book about two opposites who bring out the best in each other that I highly recommend. Paige is a first-grade teacher, wannabe children's book writer, and free spirit who believes that, if you have faith, good things will happen. Dylan is a successful investment banker who is stressed out, unhappy and believes only hard work will make things happen. Paige is creative and colorful where Dylan is staid and monochromatic. They don't realize they have something in common - the cabin that Paige rents had once been owned by Dylan's grandparents. When the owner decides to sell, they both want it. It has become Paige's sweet haven and is the site of Dylan's happiest childhood memories. Paige is attracted to Dylan but doesn't think he's the "kind of guy to ever be taken in by fanciful notions." Dylan is entranced by Paige who "flitted into his life and demolished his walls, without even trying, like some kind of superpowered butterfly." Their developing romance has many ups and downs before they get to HEA. Stacey Donovan's story is well-written with vivid descriptions of Denver in the fall and a wonderful population of primary and secondary characters. I think Paige's friend Jessica needs her own HEA. I received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
I was so excited to read this book because it features a first grade teacher and I'm a first grade teacher myself!! It couldn't have been a more perfect read for me or for fall! The unique thing about this book compared to the other Hallmark books is that there is no movie that goes along with it. This allowed me to imagine the characters the way I wanted instead of picturing the actors in my head as I read the story. I really hope this becomes a Hallmark movie in the future because I loved it! The book was as good as the cover is gorgeous! I can't recommend this book enough!
