- Received an Advance Reader Copy in exchange for a fair review -
A strong and compassionate soldier cowboy and an equally strong, fierce heroine meet and fall in love in this heartwarming Christmas novel, where the Garrett family provides the safe and loving cocoon for the new romantic couple.
I fell in love with the hero, a former Army Ranger afflicted by PTSD and trying to return to normal life. The balance between largeness and sweetness, strength and kindness and compassion in Zach’s characte

A pleasant story set around a close ranching family, a former Army Ranger, and a female firefighter.

Zach is part of the Garrett ranching family, but in the 10 years he was an Army Ranger his Father died and his Mother got into financial trouble and sold the ranch that he expected to come home to. So on his return to civilian life he went to stay with his uncle, Big Jim Garrett, and his cousins at their thriving ranch.

He did feel quite sorry for himself initially, but soon got caught up in workin

This is probably my favourite story of the series to date, and while it was definitely predictable in parts, the story was engaging and an enjoyable read. Zane and Stephanie made an intriguing couple and their relationship was depicted with just the right amount of angst and drama. A wonderful festive romance that leaves the reader feeling all I can be right with the world. My only criticism of this book is that the author tends to do a lot of recapping (obviously for those who haven’t read the ...more

Zach felt like he was missing so much from his life when he returned home. Life was not how he left it before joining the military. Trying to acclimate once again his cousins and uncle make him feel at home. Meeting Stephanie was something he could have never have imagined and slowly began to knit back those tattered ends of his soul. Keeping her safe was the only thing that matters when her life is threatened. Great continuation of the series. I only wish there was more mention of Beau to round ...more

COWBOY CHRISTMAS HOMECOMING by June Faber is truly a Happy reunion at the ranch with one of my favorite families! This story focus was cousin Zach (returning Veteran) and firefighter Stephanie. The story also caught up with Big Jim, Ty and Colt's families. I did miss hearing about Beau and his family, especially since it's Christmas. This story was all about family with some suspense thrown in!

This is a great Christmas Goodness story! I really enjoyed reading it, coming back to Big Jim Garrett's brood of sons and a nephew that's like his son.
Zach comes back troubled and when he meets Stephanie, he feels calmer. She is a firefighter, so a totally rocking heroine, but has big troubles of her own.
Some of the story was a bit predictable, and some I never saw coming. This family has the biggest hearts and when danger comes, they're there, front and center. A lot of emotions will hit you,

Loved the book, it’s cute, sweet and heartwarming as well as a bit of suspense and action is intertwined in Stephanie’s story. This book also touched on some relatable and hard topics such as PTSD and men returning home after deployment to big, big changes in the lives of everyone they know. Great read!

Cowboy Christmas Homecoming, is a feel good Christmas novel. If you read the books that came before this one in the series, then you'll love reconnecting with those characters. I don't think you have to read those first, but it sure did help.

This is an enjoyable quick read. I say quick as I read it in a 2 days, couldn't put it down even though the story line is slightly predictable. It is a good guilty pleasures read without being constant filth throughout making it safe for reading in public places if you so wish!

Leaves you feeling happy and content, its a perfect holiday read or me time read curled up on the couch with a blanket and a wine.

Cons: to start off there are a lot of character names so hard to follow who is who, thankful
