Breezy Hernandez has never really had a home. Now she finds herself in
Martin's Crossing where her late brother left her a house and joint
custody of his twin daughters. She is to share custody with Jake Martin;
a very tall, handsome, intimidating Rancher. Jake Martin has always
been responsible from the time he was young. He has a hard time
trusting, most especially women. He's leery of Breezy because he knows
she doesn't stay in one place very long. Breezy would love to have a
home and a family but knows that's just not possible for her especially
with someone like Jake. As they work together caring for the twins they
find themselves drawn to each other. Will Jake open his heart to Breezy
and learn to trust her? Will Breezy find the home she's looking for or
will she move on?
I loved this story. It's one that just warms
your heart through and through but also had a touch of mystery. I have
read several books in the Cooper Creek Series and was sad to see it end.
But for the Cooper Creek fans out there, you'll be happy to know that
Martin's Crossing is just as good. As a bonus, Breezy (Mia's sister) was
the main character in this story and you'll get to catch up with a few
familiar faces from Cooper Creek, which was fun. I appreciated how the
author tied them together. The folks in Martin's Crossing will quickly
find their way into your heart as you get to know them. The Martin
brothers as well as the secondary characters were fun and endearing. I
loved the chemistry between Jake and Breezy. You can just feel it
radiate off the pages. As I was reading I was reminded of how the Lord
watches out for us and that he makes everything beautiful in His time.
He makes beauty from ashes. A Rancher for Christmas is a wonderful story
that will put you in the Christmas mood. This is book 1 in the new
Martin's Crossing series. And how about that cover? I loved spending
Christmas in Martin's Crossing and look forward to going back again real
soon!!! So, throw a log on the fire, grab a cup of cocoa, curl up and
find out if Breezy gets 'A Rancher for Christmas'.

I'm a mom to three grown boys, a daughter-in-love and wife of 30 years to a great guy. I love coffee and reading and reviewing books. I am what you might call a "bookaholic". (Even more than that...a Kindleholic!) I also love to shop the thrift stores for interesting treasures! I appreciate the authors I know and love but I also like finding new authors and making new author friends.
