We were introduced to Jennifer and Parker back in book three of the series, Eamon. We were all left hanging at the end of book three when, in the final pages of that book, Dalton and Hazel return late from their honeymoon with the devastating news that Hazel has been diagnosed with breast cancer. This last book in the series begins where book two ended.

I believe, as good as the other stories were, this is the best of the series. Without disclosing spoilers, let me say that I shed tears from tim

The fifth book in the contemporary Cowboys and Debutantes series will read as a stand-alone and is a continuation of this saga of the Williams brothers, Dalton, Eamon, and Parker. The three brothers have pulled together to make the Cotton Tree Ranch prosper as much as they can in the beginning. It seems, just as things are looking up, life happens, and now they must face many uncertainties. Life is all about how you deal with the unexpected, and

Another wonderful addition to the Cowboys and Debutantes series! This book is a continuation of other books in the series, but is also a standalone. Dalton and Emily figure prominently in the book and Eamon and Emily are key players once again.

Parker Williams is a Veteran who has problems adjusting to his life after his stint with the Army Rangers in Syria. When his sister-in-law Hazel is diagnosed with breast cancer, her college roommate, Jennifer Barsby, decides to quit her job and come to Cot

A heartwarming story of finding love!

Parker is the fifth book in the sweet contemporary romance in the Cowboys and Debutantes Series. A unique and captivating story with romance and a happy-ending that we all have come to expect. This is another story that I had a hard time putting down. It is such a passionate, unique and captivating story. This book has so many different “feelies” throughout – laughter, happiness, sadness, and joyfulness.

The characters are well developed and engaging. I real

Friends, Ranch Style

This is one of a series of books by multiple authors, but within that series author Vivi Holt has produced a trilogy dealing with brothers taking on a ranch in Georgia. Each novel stands alone and has sufficient background data to let you know how the pieces fit together and each highlights a different brother, his life issues, and his quest for an HEA (Happily Ever After). Fittingly, narration is by Dawson McBride, whose rich gravelly voice imbues Southern Charm (and not a

I have read quite a few of Vivi Holt's books and this is the second one I've read in the Cowboys and Debutantes series. As always, she does a great job connecting you to the characters and their histories... making the story entertaining and pulls you in where you feel invested emotionally too. If you like clean romance with a cowboy twist then you won't be disappointed with this one, it was such a fun ride! Dawson McBride also does an amazing job with the narration.

I just finished Parker by Vivi Holt. It was like returning home and visiting family. Ms. Holt's writing always draws you into the story so that you feel like you are a part of it. After reading Dalton and Eamon, I was so excited to read Parker's story. I was given an ARC to read in exchange for my honest review.

His brother's wife becomes ill and her friend comes to help. They all have to deal with a diagnosis of breast cancer. Then sudden storm blows half the roof off the ranch house and the insurance company refuses to pay. Good book.

I loved this story of the series. The reader has been engaging throughout, but Parker and Jennifer's friendship turns to more as they learn to care how the other is feeling and understanding the pain they are both going through. Throughout each story, Parker was the brother that most concerned me, and Vivi Holt brings such love and caring to a man like Parker.

Family and friends

The Williams brothers struggle to keep from losing their ranch and their home following a storm that couldn't come at a worse time. This book stands alone, but is part of a colorful family series.
