I am a proud connoisseur of country cowboy romance novels. I read lots of them that are done well and also read a lot that are mediocre. This compilation of short stories that built into one overall story, is AMAZING.

Typically, I can get nervous and apprehensive of novels that are made up of short stories, especially when more than two authors are involved. Depending on the different writing styles, there can often be a huge disconnect between the stories. However, this one really worked well.

The farmhouse was were the girls spent their summers together bonding and making some wonderful memories. But time and circumstances had the girls drifting apart over the years.

What a fantastic read this was. It’s a collection of four sweet, tender, heartwarming stories (that could easily have been four parts of the same story by one author with the effortless way it flows between them) that is perfect for romance lovers everywhere with some second-chance romance, a touch of forbidden love, and a dab of long-time crushes!

A Cowboy for All Seasons is an anthology by Caitlin Crews, Nicole Helm, Maisey Yates and Jackie Ashenden. It’s four romances starring four different cousins who each spend a season in their grandmother’s home in Jasper Creek, Oregon. She’s recently passed away and each granddaughter has received a letter written to them before she died with an invitation to spend a season in her home. For the women it’s bittersweet to be at Grandma June’s house without her, but their Grandma had some tricks up h ...more
This was a terrific collection of stories about second chances, self-discovery, and family. I loved seeing these four women overcome past hurts and find their ways back to the love and friendship they used to share.

To honor her grandmother’s last wishes, Kiera Long will return to her family’s farmhouse in Jasper Creek, Oregon and spend spring there where she hopes to correct the wrongs of her past starting with former flame Remy West.

Let me start by stating that I am a fan of all four of the authors responsible for this anthology, because they seldom, if ever, disappoint, which once again proved true in A Cowboy for All Seasons. I first encountered three of these authors, Jackie Ashenden, Maisey Yates, and Megan Crane/Caitlin Crews, in The Deacons of Bourbon Street series, which I loved, and I have been following each them ever since, and for good reason--they are all amazingly gifted writers, as is Nicole Helm, whose work I ...more

Four stories in this anthology: four female cousins, each come back to their grandmother's home for one season after her death, each falling for a local cowboy while she is there.

I liked the idea of this story, with a different couple featured for each season. I loved the use of Grandma June's house as a character, acting as a link for all four stories. But I felt like the four stories were more repetitive and similar than they should be. (For example, three of the four female leads were virgin

Wow, just wow. Separately Maisey Yates, Nicole Helm, Jackie Ashenden and Caitlin Crews are powerhouses behind the keyboard. Together, they are unbelievably amazing. Each woman puts their spin on a season with one woman and their very special cowboy.

Each summer 4 cousins would travel to the farmhouse and to Grandma June, who was one of a kind. She loved each of her granddaughters and their strengths and weaknesses unconditionally. When she passes, 3 cousins return home for her funeral, only Bell

I don't know what it is about cowboys that just does it for me! I enjoyed all four stories and I loved the idea behind each of the cousins spending a season in the house. While the skeleton of each story was similar (granddaughter is estranged/emotionally detached from parents but shares special bond with grandmother, shares history with a man in town, and has no real attachment to keep her from relocating to Jasper Creek after her season ends), I did find each of them n

I bought this sucker right before the lock down for us began so it sat on my ever-growing TBR pile because I just could not read for 6-8 weeks (as previously mentioned in another review). We're on our second lock down so I decided to get over myself and start a'reading. I am sorry I waited on this. I kept reading insanely positive reactions and reviews to it so I figured a million (approx) romance lovers couldn't be wrong.

They were not wrong. What a brilliant concept and flawless execution.
Spring by Caitlin Crews
After the death of their grandmother, four women are tasked with staying at her house, each of them for one season. The first is Keira Long. Keira was raised by a con man father and a mother who thought that he was everything leaving no room for anyone else. The only place Keira felt loved was at her grandmother's. And then with Remy West. But his parents didn't approve and Keira felt like she needed to find out who she was on her own so she left when he proposed. That was

We get a little bit of everything here, a second chance romance, a single-dad romance, a first love romance, and a former step-siblings romance. All are packed with emotions, all have a rocky ride to the HEA, and all have our women ending up with their cowboy <3

Watching Remy and Keira now as mature adults, and hearing how they were when they were younger, made this second-chance all the sweeter. Having them realize they were always still in love with each other, and making

4 books in 1 and it was great! The stories were sweet, and the characters were amazing! What can I say? I'm a sucker for a good romance novel, and throwing a cowboy in there doesn't hurt either 🤷🏻‍♀️

The stories flowed together great, and the fact that each one was written by a different author was cool! I expected it to be at least a little choppy since they might all write differently, but I was pleasantly surprised. Each season flowed into the next, just like it would in real life. With nothin
A Cowboy for All Seasons by Maisey Yates added some fun elements to the well written book. Grandma June had four granddaughters. After her death she willed each of her granddaughters one season at her house. The letters came with specific instructions on what they were to accomplish during that season. Grandma June had specific objectives in mind obviously and each of her granddaughters - Keira, JJ, Lila and Bela all had help though - each had the help of a cowboy from their past.

I would have given this book a four or even five star rating especially the first three books in the story but the last author Jackie Ashenden ruined it for me. In the letter from her Grandma June it says Bella is to "make sure the old house is ready for sale if that's what you, Keira, Lila and JJ decide." The author doesn't follow that at all as throughout the story as Bella keeps saying it's her decision if she wants to sell the house and the money will go to her. There isn't any consideration ...more

Such a touching book. Four stories from four authors, all connected to the same world, but unique at the same time. I have a soft spot for cowboys, so this one was right up my alley. Plus I love anthologies. I think they're a great way to meet new authors, and this one was half new to me authors and half authors that I've enjoyed before, so I was sure to be happy with at least part of the book. As it turns out, I enjoyed each story, and will be looking forward to reading all four of these talent ...more

What a great story. I loved the concept and although each season (story) was written by a different author, the complete book flowed effortlessly!

Each of four cousins are left a season to spend in their grandmother's house. At one time they used to spend summers together with their grandma. As they grew up and separated, living their own lives, they grew apart.

I was so excited for this, and with good reason! What a great group of writers coming together to create stories of my favourite genre, Rural Romance!
Each story was strong and I was intrigued immediately, however each story seemed rushed and short, like they needed a novel all their own. I would have liked it as a series of books...
Perhaps this is a good thing? You all made me want so much more.
My only reason for taking off a star, is like I stated earlier, I wanted more from the stories, perh

I really enjoyed this romance by four of my favorite authors about four cousins who reconnect with their past. Their beloved grandmother died and her last request was that each of them spend a season in her house. Even the house seems to be leading them towards their future. Keira arrives in spring and finds a second chance at love; JJ comes in summer and discovers a side to herself she'd never seen; Lila arrives in autumn and finds a new life; and Bella shows up in winter and learns how to ask ...more
