REVIEW TOUR – The Christmas Cowboy Hero by Donna Grant
Posted by Book Loving Pixies
Get in the spirit of Christmas with this brand new, Stand-alone romance from Donna Grant!
‘Tis the season for ex-Navy SEAL Clayton East to come home for the holidays-even if the mood at home is anything but festive. His father is ill. The East Ranch is in financial trouble. And now it’s on Clayton, the prodigal son, to make sure his family doesn’t lose everything. Headstrong Abby Harper is like a mother to her younger brothers, who she’s helped raise since she was a teenager. Keeping them in line is no small task while she’s also working toward her college degree. And now that one of her brothers has been arrested for stealing cattle at the East Ranch, Abby is at her wits’ end. But there is a silver lining: Clayton East. He believes in second chances, and is willing to give one to her brother this Christmas. Letting beautiful Abby-and the inescapable longing in his heart-off the hook, however, is a whole ‘nother story. Could it be that the woman of this local hero’s dreams has been back at home all along?
Contains mature themes.
BLP Review ~ Tracy
The Christmas Cowboy Hero was a good read. From this starting point in a new series I’m looking forward to seeing what’s next from Donna Grant in the Heart of Texas books.
With the leading couple coming from different family experiences, this book had a real element of belonging and being and feeling wanted to it along with some action, suspense and intrigue. Clayton has returned home when all he wanted to do, for a few reasons, was stay away and live his life, he’s not looking for a relationship or anyone to love and he’s not sure he’s gonna be staying at his folks ranch for long.
Abby has been sister and mom to her two younger brothers since their mother bailed and left them to raise themselves. She’s brave, working hard to provide for her siblings while studying and trying to keep her brothers in school, keep them out of trouble and focusing on a better future for them all. She doesn’t have time or thought about starting seeing anyone as her sole focus is her little family and their happiness and security.
The initial meeting between the pair wasn’t the best as Abby’s younger brother has been arrested for stealing cattle from Clayton’s family ranch. Things begin to change for them both when their pre-conceived ideas and notions about the other are knocked for six once they spend time together and start to get to know each other.
I loved Clayton’s folks and their reaction to and reception of Abby and her brothers. Watching the pair fall and begin to care for each other made for good reading and I was rooting for them to find their HEA.
A good 4* read.
