Favorite Quotes:

“Kace, the baby whisperer,” Nico joked. Kace gave him a look that could have frozen hell.

… a nurse came moseying into the room. Kace knew her, of course, and he groaned softly. It was Annabelle Mason. She was eighty if she was a day and as slow as a sloth unless it came to gossip.

In addition to bad art, her mom also had a penchant for experimental furniture. There was the tiger print couch, complete with roaring tiger heads for sofa arms. Odd-shaped yellow-and-green leather

I loved the conclusion to Ms. Fossen's Coldwater Creek series featuring the Laramie brothers! I've loved them all, but I think this one, with oldest brother, Sheriff Kace Laramie, and his ex-wife/only love Jana, is my favorite!

Ms. Fossen has a deft hand with supporting characters, creating this whole community of fleshed out people (and cows!) we meet in one book and revisit in another. So many entertaining, funny, lovable, admirable and pitiable extras in this series. They're as fun to get to

I've been enjoying Delores Fossen's Coldwater series since its inception, and she pulled out all the stops with this fourth novel in the series. While I did have a few issues with it, I found it to be the zaniest of her novels so far--it kept me going from amused to laughing out loud, and for the sheer enjoyment of reading it, it get 4 stars from this reader.

As second-chance romances go, this novel won me over from the get-go. This novel is eldest Laramie brother, Kace's story. He's the sheriff

What a beautiful wonderful amazing read.

What a great read! This had me hooked from the beginning. The sitting, theme, and the Characters had me pulled so in. Everything was well put together and it was just perfect. This novel did just that to me.

You never know what's going to happen next in Coldwater, Texas. Just ask Sheriff Kace Laramie. It's usually nice and quiet in Coldwater but this day turns out to be anything but quiet. Kace spots the town flasher outside the police station about to do his thing. A red Porsche with Oklahoma plates runs the town's only traffic light and the town librarian's pet longhorn, Petunia escaped again and was stopped in front of Much Ado about Stuffing where the bull had just whizzed enough to make a deep ...more

Another in the Coldwater Texas series in which Sheriff Kace Laramie, oldest of the brothers gets reacquainted with the girl he was briefly married to more than a decade earlier when she comes home after her second divorce, determined to get away from the man who has succeeded in taking her ranch away from her and is threatening to take her baby, too. Not that he wants precious little Marley who latches on to Kace (she calls him Tace) whenever he’s within arms’ reach of her.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Harlequin Romance via NetGalley and I also purchased one on Harlequin's website.

I just adore Ms. Fossen's books. This one is no different. I just get sucked into the world that she creates and get lost there. I adored Marley (Jana's little girl). Let's just say she is the sweetest thing (especially since Marley LOVES Kace). Kace is the sheriff in Coldwater. He and Jana were high school sweethearts and each other's first love. They married young

What made this book for me was Kace and Jana. I liked these two together. Jana was headstrong but nothing that Kace could not handle. You could tell that they still loved each other; despite the fact that they were divorced. Yet, I did find it a bit of a twist that Jana's mother was going to marry Kace's father when her mother is the one that encouraged Jana to leave Kace.

Speaking of the engaged couple. I thought they were fine. They definitely acted like the children and Kace and Jana the

A Coldwater Christmas by Delores Fossen is a second-chance romance for the oldest Laramie brother, Kace, a small-town sheriff of Coldwater, Texas. His day starts off with the usual run-ins with a longhorn named Petunia and the town flasher. However, he is not prepared to confront his past: the woman he had never stopped loving: Jana Parker, now divorced with a toddler, and the unexpected appearance of his father who had abandoned him and brothers when they were children. Jana and Kace attempt to ...more

[I received a digital arc for an honest review]

A Coldwater Christmas by Delores Fossen is the fourth book in her Coldwater Texas series. Each book came be read and enjoyed as a stand alone.

Overall, this might be my least favorite in the series so far. The writing is what I expected it to be and the characters both new and friendly faces were fine but I felt it was missing something. For a book that was filled with drama after drama the connection between Kace and Jana just fell flat for
Isn't that cover beautiful? This was a nice little Christmas holiday read. I loved the nosy town folk...(as usual with living in a small town everybody knows your business) and I enjoyed the mystery behind the mysterious things that were going on and was surprised at who was behind it and all.

I liked the main characters and could sort of relate to certain aspects of them both on a certain level but I really wasn't into their romance. Don't get me wrong I really really wanted this couple to get

As with all the Coldwater Books, Delores Fossen turns up the heat in this town as she sets the oven to sizzle. When Sheriff Kace Laramie swears of marriage, he means it. At least until an old flame strolls back into town with a young daughter in tow and in need of some help. Both try hard to resist, but soon it is very clear the embers are stoking back up. Will the promise of never marrying again still reign true?

I always enjoy the Coldwater books. Like Whiskey Creek and Silver Springs, Fossen

What a great story. I laughed at all the shenanigans and cried when dad things haooened. Both Kace and Jana had issues with their dad's. Both were abandoned when they were young and suffered heartbreaking sadness because of it. How they overcame the abandonment and go on to become decent, hardworking, and caring people is a joy to read. Another great story by Ms Fossen for the Coldwater series, that I enjoyed and recommend. Although part of a series you can read this as a standalone.

Kind of a lot going on.. liked the mystery twist - but I hated the relationship between the characters. Seems like only sex but not building on the relationship between them. Liked the baby. The mother was an idiot! Kace is the sheriff and his ex Jana comes back to town when hubby #2 divorces her. He and his brothers are in crisis because his father who abandoned them when young has come back to town engaged to Jana’s idiot mother. Is he using her for money or does he love her?

Back home in Coldwater.

Kace Laramie is the small town of Coldwater's sheriff. On a not so great day his estranged biological father and his ex-wife Jana Parker are back in town. Peter Laramie is there to marry Jana's mother Eileen and Jana is there to get Kace to help her stop the wedding.
This story is chock full of small town humor and family disagreements. Kace is trying to keep from wanting to be with Jana again and getting hung up with Jane's baby girl Marley. A great Christmas story for

This is book 4 in the Coldwater Texas series and it's Kace's story. He's surprised to see his ex-wife pull up in front of the police station but even more surprised to see his father drive by. The same father who abandoned him and his three brothers many years ago. This can be read as a stand alone but you'll enjoy all the brothers stories.Jana is in town to prevent her mother from marrying Case's dad. A good Christmas story with a few twists and turns.

What a wonderful book in this series by Delores Fossen. There is no lack of action in this book. The book hops from page to page. Old loves Jana and Kace are thrown back together with the common goal of not liking his dad. His dad wants to marry Jana's mom but Jana doesn't want that..There are strippers, naughty balloons, and people setting up Peter(Kace's dad). There is a girl that Kace has occassionally been friends with benefits. It was trippy to read her name as it is the same as mine.LOL ...more

I received A Coldwater Christmas from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my fair and honest review.

I found the book very well written, and enjoyed the storyline. There was good Chemistry between Kace and Jana, and I thought the engagement between his dad and her mom was a interesting one. The book is filled with many twists and turns, and at times I couldnt help but laugh outloud. I would certainly recommend this book to others.

I really enjoyed Kace & Jana's second chance story. There was drama coming from all directions, but the re-budding relationship between them was the best part. That and Marley's fascination with Kace. The ending was a bit abrupt and a little predictable, but it was sweet regardless. There was very little Christmas about this book.

Even though it was quirky, I enjoyed the mystery elements of the story. It wasn't necessarily suspenseful, but it kept the story moving. The brothers were all fun, and now I want to go back and read all their stories, too. Fun, Christmas read.

This book was the hottest of messes. I couldn't care less about the main characters. So much abandonment...what!? I just, no. Eileen acting 17 instead of 71. No ma'am. Not my rodeo, not my clowns. Indeed.
