CHRISTMAS WITH THE COWBOY by Tina Radcliffe, Reviewed by Trixi Oberembt
Take a bah-humbug Scrooge of a hero, a heroine full of Christmas cheer and twinkles lights, adorable three-year-old twin girls, a ranch readying itself for the annual Holiday Roundup celebration, and you have the third installment of Tina Radcliffe's Big Heart Ranch series!
We meet Emma Maxwell Norman, the youngest sister to Travis and Lucy Maxwell. While she already has her hands full with twin daughters, she also oversees many of the activities in preparation for Christmas around the ranch. You will often find her humming a Christmas song or two, baking her famous chocolate chip muffins, or simply instilling the joy of the season in the hearts of the children who reside at the ranch. In spite of her cheeriness, Zach Norman—brother to her late husband—is immune to all things Christmas, stemming back to his childhood. As you can tell, these two are quite opposite in nature. Which in turn, creates many sparks that even Christmas lights seem dim in comparison! To add to that, Zach has harbored romantic feelings towards Emma well before she married his brother. Can the holiday spirit thaw his heart and at the same time make her see what's right in front of her?
Break out the hot chocolate, candy canes and Christmas CD's to listen to as you read how this heartwarming story unfolds! Watch as Emma and Zach try to fight the love wrapping around their hearts like ribbon on a present, yet can't it be denied. Just as a child opening their Christmas gift, it comes full force and leaves you satisfied. Well-written, emotionally packed and just the right story to get you in the mood for all things Christmas!
