A Small Town Christian Cowboy Romance
Marrying the Rancher’s Daughter by Tara Grace Ericson is the first book in the Christmas in Redemption Ridge series. I really enjoy this kind of series where different authors write in the same town. I enjoyed many of the stories from the previous series, Heroes of Freedom Ridge, so I’m hoping to eventually love Redemption Ridge as much as I loved Freedom Ridge!
This is a marriage of convenience and grumpy/sunshine story. Jason and Cassie have really good chemistry together and I loved watching Cassie turn Jason a little less grumpy. Some of my favorite parts of this story were when they were really getting to know each another. Their marriage was good for both of them. I loved the Christmasy feels in this story, especially the barn dance and the Christmas shopping trip. I did feel like their declarations of love came about too quickly and sometimes Jason could be a tad too grumpy.
This story has something for everyone. There’s romance, danger, cowboys, and Christmas feels all rolled into one story.
*I received a complimentary copy of this story. All opinions are my own. The faith thread is light. 3 stars.
