review 1: This one was a feel-good holiday read, sweet and fairly uncomplicated, if a tad bit rushed toward the end. That aside, I really enjoyed Caidy and Ben's story. (Adorable kids! Dogs and horses! Gently falling snow that the menfolk clear out of the way! It's like getting the Christmas story trifecta ;) Oh, and the hero and heroine are pretty likable too...) This is only the second one in the series that I've read so far (the first being A Cold Creek Reunion), but it functions just fine as a stand alone if you're just looking for a nice Christmas story to pass the time. Be warned, though--this book inspired me to look for Trace's story (Christmas in Cold Creek), which is even now sitting patiently on my holiday reads shelf. Hopefully Ridge, the last and eldest Bowman sibling, ... morewill get his own HEA soon too....
review 2: Good book. Ben had come to Pine Gulch to help his family recover from the loss of his wife and to get his children away from the bad influences of his in-laws. He wanted to concentrate on his children. He did not expect to be attracted to Caidy and didn't want it at this time. I liked the way he was so kind and caring with the animals, though his attitude toward Caidy the first time they met didn't show it. I also liked the fact that he did apologize to her for the way he had acted. Coming from the city, Ben was not used to the openness and friendliness of the small town atmosphere. Besides his immediate attraction to her, the way the Caidy took care of him and his kids went a long way toward making Ben think there was a future for them together. Caidy had basically been hiding out on the ranch since her parents' murders eleven years earlier. She was carrying a lot of guilt since she felt it was her fault they had been at home that night. At first she didn't like Ben at all, but the more she got to know him the more she liked him. She fought the attraction, but it was a losing battle. I liked the way that she was able to overcome her dislike of the Christmas season to help make the holiday better for Ben and his kids. The way that she was able to open up to Ben about her parents also showed that she felt more for him than she thought she did. I loved the closeness of the Bowman family and the way that there is always room for more to be included. less
