I liked the 1st 2 stories. The 3rd was just ok.

GOOOOD WHAT WAS THIS?!
I only finished the first novella and I don't even want to try the other 2.
The Snowman by Diana Palmer was really bad in my opinion.
I can't find one positive thing about this book, not even the narrator. I didn't like the writing, there were many editing problems, lots discrepancies. An unlikable heroine who let people walk all over her and a hero who called her names (hooker, call girl, prostitute, ...) all the time. Ughhh one of the worst holiday books I've ever read!

I was a First Read Winner of this book and I really wanted to like it more, but it just did not do it for me.
The Snow Man by Diana Palmer, the main male character was so unlikeable for me that I never really cared about him, he said such awful things to Meadow that I just could not find it plausible that she would still be in love with him. There were moments of humor but few and far between and Meadow was a very weak female lead and I would have preferred her to be a bit more fierce.

The Snowman - Diana Palmer

Meadow Dawson has been in love with Dal Blake since she was a teenager. I couldn’t figure out why. It didn’t make sense.

Dal Blake is an egotistical, condescending, Neanderthal asshole. And that’s being kind. He spews harsh, unkind words out to Meadow every time he sees her. He makes fun of her, puts her down, and laughs at her in front of other people. And h

I wish there was an easier way to rate and review books in an anthology, so what I plan to do is rate each novel in this anthology individually as I finish reading it, so this part of my review only pertains to the first novel in the anthology, The Snow Man by Diana Palmer, and although I've read every novel she's ever written under all of her pen names, to say that this one was disappointing is putting it mildly. In all honesty, I can't give it more than a one-star rating. The ratings for the s ...more
P.e. lolo
This book has three stories in one book. The first one by Diana Palmer was just okay. The male lead character I did not care for at all. His attitude towards Meadow and the way he enjoyed to embarrass her even as an adult just showed how much he was not a cowboy or a man he was especially after her father had passed away. The second book by Lindsay McKenna, goes with the Whiskey River series if you read those and has a vet’s and childhood friend’s reconnecting. They are also dealing with his PTS ...more

Snow Man by Diana was good. Kassie's Cowboy by Lindsay McKenna was ok, Her Outback Husband by Margaret Way was ok in plot, however, she used terminology of Australia. Things seemed disjointed. Don't read again.

First story was rushed and lacked that connection I look for when reading.

Second story had errors that were to distracting.

I honestly read this book solely because of Diana Palmer and I'm heartbroken that the story didn't live up to my expectation. The Hero's mean, as usual, classic Dp's Hero, but man, the heroine really driving me crazy. For once, I wish for once she'd step up and defend herself instead of getting hurt but then succumbing easily to Hero's "mature" kisses. In the end, I'm pissed. So yeah, 2 stars. Still, I look forward to read more Diana Palmer's books.
Clare O'Beara
The first story features a young woman who had a childhood crush on an older guy from the next ranch, who always enjoyed embarrassing her and being rude. She comes back home after some years away in a demanding job, having inherited the ranch. And the guy next door is still unwed, no surprise as he is what Americans call a jerk. He still is rude and enjoys embarrassing women. There is not any reason you can come up with which would make this determined, worldly woman be attracted to this man. No ...more

Wonderful

As always another amazing read by Diana Palmer! The whole book was wonderful. Diana Palmer's heroes are always without fail strongly, handsome, wealthy and intelligent in their business lives. When it comes to their hearts, they are dumber than a bag of rocks. It is always a pleasure to read one of Diana Palmer's books.

Christmas with My Cowboy – three stories in one book!
by Diana Palmer, Lindsay McKenna (Goodreads Author), Margaret Way
The Snowman – I really enjoyed this book. It went by quickly and I was disappointed when it was done. I love Diana Palmers books. The books were read pretty quickly. They move right along. It’s a little early for me for Christmas, but I tried to get in the mood as I was to read three books about Christmas with this one. Three authors in one. First was Diana Palmer.

Cowboys and Christmas—what a magical combination! Three authors, Diana Palmer, Lindsay McKenna, and Margaret Way charm their readers with these western holiday romances, delivering their stories with a giant red bow on top.

Palmer’s “The Snow Man” is a story about mending fences, both literally and figuratively on a Colorado ranch. Neighbors Meadow Dawson and Dal Blake have a tumultuous relationship stemming from years of secret yearning and bitterness. Between solving a robbery in their small t

Christmas With My Cowboy. It has three stories in this book. I read the book in book form.

1. The Snow Man by Diana Palmer. I really liked this book. Meadow Dawson inherited her fathers ranch. Meadow knows nothing about ranching. Before her father passed away she had a crush on neighboring cattleman Dal Blake. He is twelve years older than her and he always insulted her. Now she is a woman and he noticed her more. He really has always liked her. Anyway Meadow has a husky dog and he sneaks out th

Three short stories in one.

The Snow Man by Diana Palmer - **
Meadow Dawson is a klutzy former FBI agent that has inherited her father's ranch. Trying to figure out ranching using YouTube is not cutting the mustard.
Dariell 'Dal' Blake wants nothing to do with Meadow. She has been chancing him since she was a teen, and he is to old to deal with her forward, but clumsy ways.
There are lots of hints about what might be the cause of Meadow's klutziness, but nothing becomes of it. And a bit too muc

Christmas is just around the corner. And with that comes your Christmas romance. I had the opportunity to read three books by three different authors. It wasn't any hardship since I either still read or used to read books by these authors.
The Snow Man, by Diana Palmer – The old middle school way of showing that you like a girl. You know either pulling her hair or saying something negative about the way she was dressed. Well, Dal did them all to Meadow except the pulling of the hair. He mentally

I read this anthology right after it came out (but forgot to post my review). I feel I have to rate each story separately but overall, I’d give it a 4-star. Individually:

The Snow Man by Diana Palmer – 3 stars: For me, it has a typical (to me) Diana Palmer hero; usually, they are a bit too alpha jerk for me. Dal Blake didn’t disappoint. Dal’s treatment of Meadow Dawson isn’t to my taste. Don’t let my tastes spoil the story for you.

Kassie’s Cowboy by Lindsay McKenna – 5 stars: Kassie Murphy and T

2.5 stars!

Christmas with My Cowboy is a book containing three Christmas novellas from authors Diana Palmer, Lindsay McKenna and Margaret Way. I had not read anything by these popular authors before. Diana Palmer has always come recommended to me. While I did read all of the novellas there was not a standout that I loved or felt that much

I loved this book because there were three stories by three really good authors, The Snow Man by Diana Palmer, which I loved, It tells of Meadow who has been in love with her neighbor since she was a teenager and he is much older. It isn't until several years later and they meet again after the death of Meadow's father, but they still seem to hate each other-or do they!?

The second story is by Lindsay McKenna, Kassie's Cowboy, and tells the story of love lost between kassie Murphy who runs Kassie

It's that time of year again. All the Christmas stories are fixing to be released. Perfect timing for them here in Texas, we just got our first cool front. This is a collection of three Christmas themed love stories, all were good.

The first The Snowman by Diana Palmer is my favorite. I loved that Meadow's dog loved getting out of her house and going over to Dal's house, and his cat kept sneaking into her house. Guess I like like the animals being characters in the story. Something to remember in

This was just an okay read for me. I love Diana Palmer's stories, but this one was not one of my favorites. The hero never really redeemed himself to me or really to the heroine for all of his nasty behavior. I found it odd how the FBI would take someone so clumsy, not matter the connections, and inept as the heroine was. A pet peeve I had is that it was brought up that she spoke multiple languages, but never spoke anything but English in the entire story. Why bring it up and not use it

DNF with all three short stories, which is definitely unusual for me. I must not be the target audience.

First story had an extremely unlikable love interest. He was a first class jerk. I still don’t understand why she loved him. The main character was an unbelievable character. Seriously, an FBI agent who is clumsy, incapable of interrogating bad guys, and who complains that her hands are too small for a gun? *roll eyes*

The second story started off okay, but the pacing was slow and since it’s C

I stopped reading Diana Palmer's books years ago because of the same storyline that is in this one. It drives me crazy when the male character constantly belittles and abuses the weak female character and then they end up in love and married. Why? I don't get why she would love him, and if he loved her, why would he treat her like that? The Lindsay McKenna book was not much better. I've read the series that this book goes with and have really become a bit fed up with the theme. I love our milita ...more

Having enjoyed other Diana Palmer books, I purchased Christmas with my Cowboy. It is a three-in-one paperback with The Snow Man by Diana Palmer, Kassie's Cowboy by Linday McKenna and Her Outback Husband by Margaret Way. About one-third of the way through The Snow Man, I was ready to throw the book in the trash. The male lead is obnoxious and has no redeeming character traits except his love of animals. The female is a classic weak, helpless scatterbrain despite her previous employment with the F ...more

Have a very merry holiday season with this collection of three engaging, "Cowboy" contemporary romance stories. Take a trip to snowy Colorado or perhaps you'd also enjoy going to Wyoming to find love ! The third story may require a bigger suitcase as you go across the Pacific to Australia to find a handsome cowboy "down under". No doubt about it, you'll love these three stories about second chances and lost love. Three of my favorite authors and three outstanding holiday stories!
