Mistletoe Reunion Marlys Boyd has worked hard to put herself through medical school, yet she struggles to find patients at her Philadelphia practice, so she moves home to Cowboy Creek and places an ad in the paper.
Sam Mason was a reporter in Philadelphia before serving in the War Between the States, he wrote a book about his experiences. But he came back to Cowboy Creek for a new start, and bought the local paper.
I like the reunion between Marlys and Sam as they become acquainted again. Marlys always makes a point of not ignoring August, Sam's 8 year old son, and encouraging his love of learning.
Marlys has a love of learning, and is open to finding new solutions, that serve her well as a Doctor.
Mistletoe Bride Colton Werner reluctantly agrees to help interpret for the midwife, with one of her patients that speaks German. He remembers enough to find out that her name is Beatrix Haas, and she came to town to marry the sheriff, who has been recently deceased. The labor is difficult and Beatrix fears for the fate of her child, so Colton volunteers to marry Beatrix in name only to care for her child, that he names Joseph after his deceased twin brother. But when she recovers, Colton is faced with an interesting dilemma, married and the father of a newborn.
Beatrix wants to be a good wife to Colton, she tries to get close to him, and is thrifty with his money. But Colton seems to have a wall around his heart.
I like how the town welcomes Beatrix and include her in their activities.
Colton does his best to show Beatrix that she is safe and that he would never hurt her or Joseph.
Two fantastic stories of love and family at Christmas time in Cowboy Creek.
