Coffee Creek, Montana series book 4

This was the last book in the Coffee Creek series. I thought it ended on a good note. Somehow I missed reading book 3. I have given the three I have read all 4 stars.

Big Sky Christmas is a feel good story. Some tender moments, some funny moments and just joy of a mother enjoying her son. I have been waiting to see Winnie Hays back in Coffee Creek.

Winnie in book 1 of the series it was her wedding day but her groom Brock never made it to the chapel. He wa

Colton is one of the Harts. He's the unreliable one. The one who couldn't make it home in time to be his brother's best man. The one who lives in a trailer and spends his time cruising the rodeo's. He rides, broncs and bulls and the odd passing woman. Big brother Ace has almost given up expecting him to pull his weight around the Ranch. Mom Hart is thinking he'll never settle down with a good woman.

Until old friend Leah turns up back in town, rebuilding her life after a failed marriage accompani

Big Sky Christmas was a great, short romance. I absolutely loved Jackson and Winnie. A couple of years prior to the beginning of the story, Winnie’s fiancé, Brock, died in a car accident on the way to their wedding. Winnie was pregnant at the time and later gave birth to their son. Brock’s foster brother, Jackson, was the one driving and blames himself even though it wasn’t his fault. Jackson had always had a crush on Winnie, but of course, didn’t do anything about it because Brock was his best ...more

In Big Sky Christmas by C.J. Carmichael, Jackson Stone has always been grateful to the Lamberts for taking him in and giving him a family when he most needed it. But after the death of Brock, for which he still blames himself, he can’t be near them for the guilt kills him. Not only the guilt that he was driving in the accident that killed him, but also that he always coveted his fiancé, Winnie Hayes, even if he never acted on it. Which I why he left Coffee Creek to go help and works wit

I just finished reading Big Sky Christmas by C.J. Carmichael. The fourth book in the "Coffee Creek Of Montana" Series. Three brothers and one sister stories. "Promise From A Cowboy", "Her Cowboy Dilemma" and "Remember Me, Cowboy". All were excellent books. All the books were tied together. I would recommend the series to everybody who enjoy romance books. Big Sky Christmas was a tear-jerker at times. Happy ending.

I think that this is the final book in The Coffee Creek Series, and though the author does a great job of summarizing the series so the book stands alone, I think I would have felt a more emotional connection had I read the others as well. It was a good story focused on family, hearth and home, and is well set for Holiday reading. All in all , I found it a sweet, well written read.

**This book was received in a Goodreads Giveaway**

I have to say, this fourth and final book in the Coffee Creek Montana series certainly improved upon the third book. The characters were written better and the plot moved along better. And because it is the fourth book, it's one of those series that would be helpful to read in order. Especially because this one relies a lot on the history from the other books.

Winnie has finally returned to Coffee Creek. In Book One, we saw her on her wedding day,

It's been a really long time since I read a romance novel with a baby on the cover. 15 years ago, they were a staple of my romance reading, but since having kids of my own it's just not as romantic as it was. Regardless, the title of this one and the Montana setting made me request a copy. (Apparently I outgrew babies but not cowboys.)

Big Sky Christmas is the fourth book in the Coffee Creek series and it really shows. Winnie has come back home after 18 months away- 18 months after her fiance was

Big Sky Christmas was such a super cute book. I really fell in like with the characters and now I want to read more about the others.

Here we have the magic formula again: Cowboys and Christmas and really, what’s not to love about that? Winnie Hays has returned to Coffee Creek after the death of her fiance, Brock. She now has a son, Brock’s son, since she had just gotten pregnant when he died during an unfortunate auto accident the night before their wedding. The driver of the vehicle? Sexy cowbo

I've never read a book in this genre before and doubt that I will again. It reminded me of an over-the-top John Wayne western where the hero accompanied by a handful talented characters dole out justice to nefarious "owlcoots" while successfully guiding a band of innocents across the prairie. A quick read, frustrating at times with the seemingly never ending skirmishes, natural disasters, and gun battles.
