HER CHRISTMAS COWBOY by Linda Baten Johnson
Elizabeth Carson would love to have a loving husband and family but feels her height, lack of beauty and quick tongue scares off every suitor. Then she receives a letter from her sister asking her to come to Texas to help her when the baby arrives and also hints that she may have found the perfect man for Elizabeth. That gave her hope that maybe the Lord did have someone for her. Jesse Lovett is sent by her sister and husband to gather some supplies as well as escort Elizabeth back to Texas. Trouble is, Jesse and Elizabeth get off to a bad start. They can't seem to get along. Jesse's not sure how Elizabeth will handle the trip, but when the need arises she surprises him and earns his respect. Will Texas hold the promise of a bright future? Will she find that special someone the Lord meant for her?
This was a very quick read but also very enjoyable. I enjoyed the banter between Jesse and Elizabeth. Elizabeth was a very relatable person. Especially if you've ever felt like you just didn't measure up to the standard of beauty. Jesse was a neat fella. I enjoyed how he handled things. Life on the plains was pretty rough and I think the author gives you a good feel for that. I thoroughly enjoyed the ending but was sad to see the last page. If you're looking for a quick feel-good kind of story then you may want go ahead and pick this one up to see if Elizabeth gets Her Christmas Cowboy! Happy trails...
