A Cowboy Christmas by Linda Goodnight and Ruth Logan Herne ~ Review

Lucie's Review:

A Snowbound Christmas
Caleb Girard ranches with his adoptive father, Greg, who has recently been having health complications requiring him to get a new kidney. He needs help taking care of his father, so they hire a home nurse, who turns out to be his highschool crush, Kristen Andrews.

Kristen has come home to heal from a broken leg, but she still wants to be useful so she takes on the job of calling on people as a nurse, she stays upbeat despite everything, and helps Caleb start a fundraiser to help with Greg's medical expenses.

Kristen gets stranded on their ranch by a snowstorm, so she and Caleb have time to reconnect. Kristen is a strong woman who won't compromise her beliefs. Caleb is a good man, but sometimes his past still haunts him. Greg's strong faith and good sense of humor help him deal with his sickness, he is a well of sound advice, and he wants the best for his son.

Falling for the Christmas Cowboy
Ty Carrington's family has a ranch near Shepherd's Crossing, and they just bought some houses in town for back taxes. Jessica and her 4 year-old daughter move into one of the houses that she had inherited from her aunt, she is surprised to find that actually Ty owns her house.

Instead of kicking them out, Ty helps them. Dovie, Jessica's daughter attaches herself to Ty, and her enthusiasm for Christmas melts his heart.

I loved how both Jessica and Ty have suffered loss in the past, and neither is expecting to find a second chance. Jessica and Dovie's strong faith convicts Ty, and makes him look at how he has distanced himself from God.  I love how involved Jessica gets with the town, and how the community comes together to save the town.

Two Christmas stories tell of strong women of faith and the cowboys that they fall in love with at Christmastime. A highly enjoyable read that would make for an excellent stocking stuffer. Both stories make the most of their short length, with great characters, and strong faith.
