Two novellas included in Western Christmas Wishes
His Christmas Family by Brenda Minton
Laurel Adams didn’t really want to return to her childhood home in Hope, Oklahoma. Her grandmother was ill and needed help—that’s why she went home.
Cameron Hunt rented a guesthouse from Gladys and had reasons to prefer his own company. Yet with Gladys in the hospital, he figured he’d have to show Lauren the ropes and help her with Rose, the teenager who stayed with Gladys under foster care.
There are some surprises awaiting these two as Christmas approaches.
Not only did the struggles of the main characters tug at my heart, but also the secondary characters battled major obstacles.
An enjoyable holiday romance.
A Merry Wyoming Christmas by Jill Kemerer
Michael Carr, in between job assignments, returns to his family’s ranch for the Christmas holidays. A rift between him and his brother guarantees that he won’t linger too long after the holiday.
Leann Bowden looks forward to a new start in Wyoming with her two-year-old daughter, Sunni. Leann arrives at Sunrise Bend a few weeks before her new job starts to get them settled. It didn’t matter that Christmas was coming—there was nothing tying her to St. Louis.
There’s something about Michael that draws Leann to his quiet strength. Yet, if he doesn’t plan on staying, she can’t give into her feelings. She’s already been through one man leaving her and her daughter … she can’t go through it again.
Believable characters, an adorable little girl who tugged at my heart, and a sweet romance made this an enjoyable read!
