My Rating: 4 Stars

This story was oh so sweet. A second chance romance.....

Elyse Prescott abruptly left her hometown right after high school. It wasn't only her hometown she left. At eighteen, all she could do was panic when her boyfriend, two years older, proposed. It wasn't that she didn't love Brett. Elyse just wanted a different kind of life for herself. That life included a new start somewhere else. What it didn'

Her Christmas Cowboy by Helen Lacey is a charming, romantic novella about finding true love. It tells the story of Elyse Prescott and Brett McCrane. Elyse has returned home after years of living and working in the city. Maybe it’s destiny that she runs into Brett just as she arrives. Crossing each other’s path resurfaces the past where romance had never been enough to keep Elyse in Denary. Could she and Brett finally find the happiness they so deserve after so many years?

Her Christmas Cowboy by Helen Lacey
I have read books by Helen Lacy before and she certainly did not disappoint me with her book this time either.
Elyse Prescott grew up on the farm but it was not in her blood to stay there. She wanted the city life and left and is just now making a visit back to the farm and her father. Elyse is a lawyer who has a very busy schedule and a few days prior her 18 year old sister Billy-Jean turned up at her doorstep with a 3 month old baby named Jackson on her hip.

A very enjoyable and emotional second chance story about Brett and Elyse who havent seen each other for 10 year. Elyse left their small hometown for the bright lights of the big city and became a successful city lawyer. Family circumstances saw her come home for Christmas and reunions with all her loved ones were unavoidable.

A successful novella, to me, is one where the author manages to capture my attention and make me feel the characters in the limited space they have. Unlike regulation lengt

Her Christmas Cowboy by Helen Lacey is quick read story about a woman returning to her home town 10 years after breaking up with her boyfriend and moving to the city to pursue her career. She reconnects with the man she could never forget and they iron out their differences.

The characters are easy to relate with, Elyse thought she knew what she wanted out of life but could never get over her first love. She always had a feeling of being incomplete until she realised that her career is not more i

I must say that it was a very sweet read. Makes you go all mushy inside what with teenage love around you and your high school sweetheart to sweep you off your feet again.

Elyse is back on the farm where she was born and raised from the city life she had chosen. Albeit for only a few days. Coming back brings forth what she had been running away from but her fear keeps her in its grip completely and she makes a dash for the city as soon as she is able to.

Brett loves Elyse still but has a hard time

A short and sweet novella about going home again and reconnecting with that one true love you left behind!

Elyse Prescott is returning home to Denary for the first time in 10 years to handle some family issues, and right off the bat she runs into Brett McCrane.

Brett was her high school boyfriend and wanted to spend his life with her, but she had bigger and better dreams for herself in the big city.

Will feeling that same old draw to him make her realize she made a mistake walking out all those yea

I do love second chance romances and this is a good one! Elyse ran from her small town as soon as Brett's proposal was out of his mouth. Watching them deal with the hurts of the past, the stress of the present and the promise of the future was a lot of fun. A good read! ...more
