The Sheriff's Christmas Angels Debra Holt- Texas Lawmen Book 4



Description:

Angels. Emma Cramer doesn't consider herself an angel by any stretch of the imagination. Temporarily stranded, broke and unable to pursue her dreams of working in the big city following her mother’s death, Emma’s life changes when she rescues a small child and a puppy who get trapped in a garage where Emma’s truck has finally breathed its last . The girl’s relieved and grateful grandmother believes Emma has been sent by angels because her family needs temporary help. She offers Emma a job, a good salary and a place to stay until after the holidays. It seems like a Christmas miracle for both of them.

Angels often appear when least expected, but when the most needed. Cynical sheriff and rancher Cole Drayton has heard that all his life, but he’s never been in the market for much else. He can take care of his daughter, his ranch and his family on his own without his meddling mother, but his long protected heart and desire for isolation is no match for a beautiful stranded stranger and a misfit puppy who make his daughter laugh and him feel alive again.

Can unsuspecting hearts intersect at the moment when love and trust is needed most? Anything is possible with the magic of the Christmas season and faith in the Christmas angels.


My thoughts on the book:

Emma has been taking on the world since she was a little girl through the good and the bad. She’s done with college and is ready to be the person she dream she could always be, someone to make her mom proud of. When things take a turn she starts to wonder where all her plans might go. Cole trust no women well other then his daughter and mom, but well they don't count. He just wishes his mom would back off and let him raise his daughter he doesn't need anyone in his life. But it seems that might be changing and he needs to find a way to protect his heart and his family. Can he come out of this situation unscathed?
I have read all four books in this series and hands down I think this one is my favorite. I really loved Mae, Darcy and Charlie. I loved the big role Charlie played in the book and how her personality was strong even though she was small. I loved how the book just jumps out at you and you can truly picture yourself there in the small Texas town. I really enjoyed how the author kept it clean for all but one small part which really was so tasteful and played an important part in the book. I really enjoyed Emma and how she was super independent but still vulnerable. Really you could not go wrong with this book super fun read and gets you ready for the holidays.

A Cowboy to Keep Barbara Ankrum- The Canadays of Montana Book 4




Description:
On the run from her past, photographer Ali Thibeaux arrives undercover in Marietta to find her biological half-sister. Plan A: Meet Olivia, photograph her wedding, and disappear before endangering anyone. Plan B: All hell breaks loose.

Reclusive rancher Adam Wolfe’s only plan when he hires Ali to manage his dysfunctional household is to go on hiding from the world. But his scars don’t seem to matter to the beauty who unexpectedly turns his house into a home and heals the rift between him and the teenaged niece he’s taken in. Still, he suspects there’s more to Ali than meets the eye and he’s determined to uncover what she’s hiding from him before it’s too late.


My thoughts on the book:

Ali has a past secret she needs to stay one step ahead of. When it seems all she wants to do is stop and find a place to belong. Adam would rather be left to his own devices but now he has his niece to care for and she's the most important person ever. Can they both find the answers they seek or will it all blow up in there faces?
I love that this book was not always on the edge of your seat but has a moment were you are literately hanging on to every last work just to find out what is going to happen. I really enjoy coming back and visiting the fun characters of Marietta Montana and this book did not disappoint in any way on catching up with them. I had fun reading about Adam's strong personality and how it did not overwhelm the story and I loved how Ali was a fighter and a super independent. The author did an amazing job and keeping you guessing through out the book and I totally loved Carrie. Carrie is one of those characters who has a tough exterior with a beautiful heart and spirit she was one of my favorites. There is adult language and one adult scene but other then that a super fun read.

The Wedding Flight SJ McCoy



Description:
Laura Benson is about to marry Cole (Smoke) Hamilton and you are cordially invited to attend the wedding in Summer Lake, California.

Yes, they wanted to travel a little further afield for their nuptials, but sometimes life intervenes. These two lead such busy lives. They're tired of putting off their wedding until they can find the perfect time. They've finally decided to tie the knot, no matter what.

You'll have to accept the invitation and join them and the rest of the gang at the lake if you want to find out what life has in store for them on the final leg of their journey toward wedded bliss.

This book is intended for adult readers 18+

*************************
The Wedding Flight is NOT intended to be read as a stand alone novel. This book is for my lovely readers who have enjoyed Summer Lake books 1-12. It's a chance to join Smoke and Laura for their wedding, and to visit with the couples from the earlier books in the series -- and get to know some new friends, too.

Most of the Summer Lake books can be read as stand alone books – no cliff hangers here! Each book contains one couple's story. However, they are best read in order to get full enjoyment of the underlying story and friendships.

Other books in the series click on the title to purchase,



My thoughts on the book:

I have read a handful of books in this series and its super fun series thats forsake. In this book Laura and Smoke are finally read to set the date for there wedding and it seems that life just might be getting in the way and nothing is going to stop them. They have there date and they have a wonderful group of friends who have stepped up to help out. This book is about is about love, friendship and family. I loved how the small town of Summer lake is just like any other small town close with some fun characters. I loved how this group of friends seems to be willing to accept anyone into there small  group and it seems that Summer lake is a place of healing and hope. The friends seem more like family then anything else. This book does have adult language in it so it may not be suitable of all readers. However I do agree the books should all be read before reading this one as is sums up so much. I can't wait to read more about the other run character from this book. I really want to read Cam and Pipers story now.

Heavenly Blues Sarah Price




Description:
In this powerful narrative, bestselling author Sarah Price takes us on the dark road to addiction.
Laura Reese is losing control. Compassionate and conscientious, she excels as a post-op nurse, but her new supervisor doesn’t care how much she needs time off. Although she’s a selfless wife and mother, news of her husband’s promotion only fills her with anxiety. The country-club lifestyle he craves triggers memories of the dysfunctional family she came from, and of her own mother’s single-minded ambition to climb the social ladder.
Laura has reached a breaking point. For her, there’s only one way to pull it all together, to balance the demands of her family and job, and to keep pleasing everyone she loves. But her little blue pills are pushing her closer to the edge…


My thoughts on the book:

Laura is starting to feel overwhelmed by life. It seems everyone wants something from her and now the holidays on upon her and she just can't seem to get a break. Her new boss seems to want to make everything that much harder and she is not about to make this transition easy. All she needs is a little something to get through it all and she knows it will give her a break, I mean it can't be that bad right? 
Just like other books I have read of Sarah’s this one does not hold back and will not disappoint at all. Sarah’s not afraid to write/talk about some tough subjects in her books and that was very much the case with Heavenly Blues.  I loved how she held nothing back in this book. Addiction whether legal or illegal is facing our nation and this book was a total eye opener to that. Addiction doesn’t have a face it can effect anyone. This book is so worth the read and is so so amazing. Once you start the book you will not want to put it down the author did an amazing job at sucking you in to the story and leaving you wanting more with every page.

Maybe This Christmas Jennifer Snow- Colorado Ice Series #3



Description:
All wrapped up . . . 

One more game. That's all that stands between NHL star Asher Westmore and a major career milestone. But then his brother bashes him against the hockey boards, sidelining him for months. Over Christmas holidays, no less. If staying off the ice doesn't drive him crazy, staying with his family will. The only bright spot amidst the mistletoe and twinkle lights: His best friend, Emma, is a physical therapist. And working out with her improves his body and his spirit.

One last time. Emma Callaway was in trouble the minute she and Asher added benefits to their friendship. How is she supposed to resist a funny, caring guy who makes her toes curl? Her heart was safe while he lived in a different state. Now that he's back home recuperating, though, it's only a matter of time before she blurts out her feelings. Emma's only hope is that with a little holiday magic, she'll get the best Christmas gift of all.

"With the perfect blend of hockey, heart, and heat, Maybe This Time is a winner!" --- USA Todaybestselling author Debbie Mason



The Colorado Ice series

Maybe This Kiss
Maybe This Time
Maybe This Love
Maybe This Summer
Maybe This Christmas



My thoughts on the book:

They were Best friends first and then become friends with benefits. Now Emma wanted more but was Asher ready for more or would the thought send him running. It seemed everyone had a plan for what they wanted from Emma but no one asked her, does she even know?  After an injury left Asher benched he starts to wonder what is next out side of hockey, especially when everyone around him seem to have it all figured out. He knows one thing it better not take long to be back on the ice because he is going back no matter the cost and no one will stop him. Then he would figure out what was next as he went. Can they figure out what they want out of life or will the cost be to much?
  
 I have been following this series from the beginning and this book did not disappoint at all. I am not sure if there are more books to come in this series but I hope so its been completely enjoyable so far. This book has to be one of my favorites, I really loved Emma and Asher friendship and how everything wasn't perfect and I enjoyed Emma and her strong personality. I loved this small town of Glenwood Falls and I love how there was follow up to the other characters in the other book and you get to find out whats going on in there lives. I will say this book does have strong language and adult scenes so it may not be suitable for all readers. Otherwise grab this book its with it and a super fun read.

Excerpt

Asher climbed out of the car. “Nah. I’ll hang out with Em tonight. I’m her last patient of the day,” he said, suddenly feeling a little better and eager to get this appointment finished so they could go back to her place for the evening. Without the meds, he was suffering a little more, and she was the only thing that eased his pain.

“All right, man. Take it easy,” Jackson said as he closed the door.

Entering the clinic, he tugged the big, heavy old door closed behind him.

“Hey, Asher,” Jane said, standing as she saw him.

“Hi, Jane. How are you?” he asked, approaching the desk and leaning over it. If he sat again, getting up would be a struggle.


“I’m great. Um, actually, I wanted to ask you…if maybe you wanted to grab a drink at the Grumpy Stump tonight?”

Caught slightly off guard, he laughed. “You don’t hang out there, do you? You’re far too pretty to be slobbered on by all the local single men.”

She blushed. “Thanks. Actually, I don’t hang out anywhere. Single-mom life doesn’t lend itself it to many dates. Not that this would be a date…”

Oh, damn. He felt like an ass saying no to the woman who was obviously putting herself out there…but he wasn’t interested in dating. In fact, since his last semi-permanent situation ended a while ago, he’d been enjoying how things were going with Emma. Right now, she was certainly the only one he wanted to be with. “I…uh…”

Emma appeared in the reception area, an unreadable expression on her face as she glanced back and forth between the two of them.

“Well, the thing is…I promised Emma I’d do that…thing with her tonight,” he said, looking at her to save him.

Her expression softened slightly as she slowly nodded. “Right, you did promise me you would do that…thing tonight.”






He smiled. Saved. Now he could resume getting excited about a full evening with her, naked, with no pressure of a flight out the next day or having to be anywhere at all. The idea excited him beyond the sexy thoughts coming to mind. He looked forward to just being with her, holding her, kissing her, and talking. He’d been so caught up in his own problems the last few weeks, he had no idea what was going on with her.

“Ok, yeah, no problem,” Jane said, busying herself with the papers on her desk.

He felt like a jerk. He turned to Emma for help.

“Um…maybe Asher could get you and Aiden tickets for a game in Denver,” she said.

Perfect. Right there—that’s why he loved her so much. The thought made him pause. Love? Of course, love. She was his best friend.

“Right, Ash?” she said when he’d yet to confirm her suggestion.

“Oh, yeah…no problem.”

Jane smiled. “Aiden would love that. Thank you,” she said, sitting back down at her desk as the phone rang.

Emma’s eyes held a hint of amusement as he followed her into her therapy room.

“What?” he asked.

She closed the door behind them and grinned. “You just turned down a hot date to suffer through dinner at my sister’s house tonight.”

Oh shit.

Halloween at the Graff Sinclair Jayne


Description:
Starting over at thirty-two is never fun, especially in a town the size of a postage stamp. Chasing that with having to beg for a job she’s wildly over-qualified for and Walker Wilder’s pride is really burned. But now that she’s the new events director for the historic Montana Graff Hotel, she’s tasked with creating buzz and traditions to fill rooms during the off-season. Halloween may not scream touristy, but hiring a spirit-hunting TV crew will definitely grab some headlines... But when the sexy spirit hunter shows up, he haunts more than her dreams.

Calum Quest is done. He’s created an entertainment empire by chasing something he’s never seen and is tired of asking questions with no answers. His life has been defined by ghosts he needs to exorcise, yet, when a red-haired, grey-eyed beauty with a body that melts his mind pours him a double shot of Laphroaig whiskey and challenges him to one more round, how can he say no?



My thoughts on the book:
Walker is coming to Marietta to hide in a sense from a past she need to get over and look for a place to belong. She feels completely let down and abandon from so many people can she move on and maybe get some answers to questions she didn't even know she had till now? Calum can't believe his eyes as she walks in but he needs to stand to his guns he there for one purpose and one purpose only to find out if he's ready to move on. But it seems the Ghost of The Graff or someone for that matter might have other plans for him. Can they get the answers they seek with out getting hurt again?

At the beginning of the book I found it was slow and dragged a little. I felt as it carried on it did pick up but there seemed to be a few slow points in the book. I really enjoyed each one of the main characters no one seems weak or came off weak, they came off strong and very independent. The book was fun and I loved catching up with the fun characters from previous books from Marietta. Over all this book was a fun read and it seems to be a quick read. I can't wait to read more from Marietta Montana. You really can't go wrong with this fun bunch.
