Fantastic, witty, comical, and of course magical. This is the best Christmas story I have ever read. If you love cowboys, kiddos, & the spirit of the magical Christmas Season. This is one amazing story. Hope, Joy, and Love of family is what this Scrooge will find.

This book was a good 'I just want to relax and read without over thinking' book. It was pleasant to read, but it left me feeling...surprised that so little seemed to happen in 324 pages. I don't know if it was just me but the heroine seemed to almost be a side note. Yes she is important, but even though I know its probably not true, the book left me feeling that she wasn't even in the story half the time. The book was much more focused on the parenting aspect than the romance. Also while not the ...more

Good story about a proud rancher who gets a second chance with the woman he loves after he gets his nieces and nephews due to the tragic death of his sister and her husband.

Thought it was going to be good, but really didn't like the main character. It was well written, but I just cringed every time the male lead opened his mouth. The motivation was described, but the self-centered attitude, "I can do no wrong" just grated on me. The last chapter was good, but their didn't seem to be much character growth that led up to it.

2.5 actually. This is one of those that would have been better as a novella - it's about 200 pages too long.

Also, I don't actually like A Christmas Carol, finding it creepy and weird (should have been named The Nightmare Before Christmas - oh wait…)

To understand the issues I have with this book, let's start with the cast:

Eben, presumably short for Ebenezer (did his parents not like him or something? I mean really…) Middle aged bachelor who mostly singlehandedly runs a ranch. Everyone he was clos

It's a straightforward enough story with a moral lesson for Christmas. Basically, all it says is "Money doesn't buy happiness" and "Christmas is a time for family" and all that jazz. As cliche as it seems, it's still a pretty good book. It's more of a heartwarming tale rather than a romance. The characters are relate able (not all likeable, but relate able) The protagonist here is an anti-hero in need of an attitude adjustment. He's your typical gruff guy only concerned about one thing in life. ...more
