...it’s almost Christmas, the star there is guiding us, and I have a pregnant woman beside me.”
“Sorry to burst your bubble, but I’m no virgin.”
As you’ll have gathered from my rating, The Cowboy’s Christmas Baby didn’t exactly fill me with festive cheer. It started out reasonably well and the author clearly did enough to keep me reading with a story ...more
Not much positive to say about this one, with a mainly dislikeable cast and average plot. The heroine acting like an ungrateful shrew for the most part, although her words relayed one thing and her actions another a lot of the time, and the hero fifty shades of dependably dull because he like the plot offered up nothing unique, apart from being happy to let a virtual stranger treat him like a piece of crap repetitively. The plot lacked depth, th ...more

I got this book as an arc from @netgalley and @entangled_publishing so thank you to both of them for providing this arc to me for my honest review.
Briefly, this book is about Sofie, a woman trying to start a new life in a new town with her unborn son, and Dan, a man who is trying to run away from that town to figure out himself. These two end up stuck on a road because of a herd of cows (is ...more
Pregnant and stranded in Wyoming in a the middle of a snow storm, Sofie Pennington is rescued by all around good guy Dan Rigby. As they get to know one another, Dan and Sofie learn to love and trust again. This is a wonderfully sweet Christmas romance that will have you cheering the happy couple on. A big thumbs up for the Cowboy's Christmas Baby.
Sofie ran from her ex-husband as far as she could go, all the way to her sister’s place, and some cows getting in the way wasn’t going to stop her. Lucky for her Dan was there to lend a hand when she needed it, although she sure is reluctant to accept help.
Dan wants someone for himself that is going to love him and need him. He is tired of feeling like he isn’t enough but Sofie ...more
I loved how this book began--Sofie's middle of the night arrival at Fly Creek delayed by slow-moving cows was definitely unique, and made me smile. She's left her disastrous marriage behind her and is determined to do things on her own from now on (though this is kind of undermined by the fact that she's making a surprise move to the small Montana town where her sister now lives, isn't it? If she really didn't want any help from anyone, wouldn't s ...more

Even though this book is the 3rd one in the Fly Creek series, you can rest assured that it stands on its own. In other words, you don't need to read the previous ones to understand and enjoy Sofie and Dan's journey. Or, if you have read the previous ones, in this last installment you will see beloved characters from the series.
Sofie has just divorced a controlling man that took away her choices in life. Pregnant, with a huge belly, she runs to her little sister who is now living ...more
The Cowboy’s Christmas Baby is the third story in the Fly Creek series. And although I’ll always suggest trying to read a series in order, in this case there is an unresolved situation in Her Cowboy’s Homecoming Surprise that does affect Dan’s early actions in his story. It’s certainly not a deal breaker, and you will still find a good story, just that somethings might be better understood if you’ve read the previous story… in my opinion.
In a character driven series ...more
The Cowboy's Christmas Baby by Jennifer Hoopes is the third book in her Fly Creek Series. I've read the first book of the series Her Cowboy's Promise. This is Sofie and Dan's story with of course Shelby who runs Sky Lake Ranch. I do have to agree with some of the other reviews but picturing the situation that Sofie was coming from with her ex-husband I can underst ...more
This story is good, but I think it is a little too formulaic - girl gets hurt then hurts guy because she’ll never trust another guy then realizes her mistake and begs forgiveness. Dan was a super nice guy and I couldn’t understand why Sofie wouldn’t just go with it. It drove me crazy the WHOLE book that she was so hesitant to just accept that he was a good guy, but she nearly broke me when she broke him.
This is the first book for me by this author and the first one I’ve read in ...more
When Dan and Sofie first meet he is running away from his home town whist she is running towards it. It is in Dan’s character to help people and so he shelves his plans in order to look after a very pregnant Sofie and soon finds a reason to want to spend the rest of his life with her. However Sofie has been hurt and sees help as a form of control, what will it take for her to see that Dan is nothing like her ex?. Lovely story. The epilogue a year later was a nice touch.
This is the third book in the Fly Creek series, but you don't have to read the first two to enjoy and appreciate this one. That said, you really should read them because it's a fantastic series.
The Cowboy's Christmas Baby is a seriously great story about two people who aren't seemingly right for each other finding love and acceptance in each other. W ...more
The Fly Creek series has been thoroughly enjoyable from the very beginning, but Dan and Sofie's story was a little different. Dan is a man ready to leave his hometown and start fresh anywhere else, but a chance meeting with a stranded Sofie changes his life in ways he never imagined. Emotional baggage, insecurities and an undeniable attraction make for a touching and heartfelt story of two people looking for something more; that is if you can get past Sofie's less endearing ...more
