Rancher for the Holidays

GIVEAWAY

JOHNSON, MYRA
RANCHER FOR THE HOLIDAYS

Her Could-Be Cowboy

Downsized from his corporate job, Ben Fisher's donning boots and a cowboy hat to try ranching through the holidays on his uncle's spread. The handsome city slicker turns heads wherever he goes—but he soon begins to fall for one special redhead. Marley Sanders has the work-obsessed bachelor doing the unthinkable—volunteering in the community and dreaming of wedding bells and babies. But his sweet country girl insists she's never leaving Alpine, Texas, and he's set to ride out
with the first job offer. Unless Marley can convince him to take the job of her forever cowboy.

My Review:

You know that moment in a book when a character does something so infuriating you want to shriek and box his ears? Yeah, well there's one of those moments in this book. And I'm pointing my finger right at Ben. He's lost his faith and his purpose in life. Alpine is just supposed to be a place to hang out until he gets things sorted out. But fate conspires against him and it soon becomes clear that maybe God has other plans and they might just involve a vivacious and somewhat reticent photographer. A tentative friendship has the potential to develop into something so much more -- if both Marley and Ben have the faith to accept the challenges along the way.

And faith is the key to the compelling inspirational thread. Faith to extend forgiveness, to resist the temptation to judge and most of all, faith to believe in the healing power of Christ's atonement. All seamlessly woven into a captivating love story that makes the perfect holiday read.

  7. I am loving the sound of this! The one thing I do so admire about the Love Inspired books, is the faith-laced stories of forgiveness, grace, mercy and love extended from our Father to the characters. This is what keeps me coming back for more! :-) Each book has had an impact on my own walk with Christ and encouraged me to go deeper still in my relationship with Him.
    And I do love cowboy/cowgirl stories....even if city slicker Ben doesn't agree to the lifestyle! I bet you Marley will convince him otherwise by the end of the story & he'll get his faith back. Count me in, pardner!!

    1. I agree about Love Inspired books. Love 'em. And this city slicker was almost convinced about relocating to the Texan countryside...except for the mentioning of snakes. I need my country living snake free thank you very much. Good luck, Trixi.

    1. Yes -- she writes contemporary romance for Love Inspired and historical for two other publishing houses. Versatile author and she's a guaranteed great read no matter what. Good luck, Terrill.
