There is something about feel good Christmas stories that simply make me smile. I am a self-admitted addict of Hallmark movies during the holidays and my husband often makes fun of me because the DVR is full of the countdown to Christmas romances. This trio of stories reminded me of those movies. Three individual authors, all with writing styles that compliment each other. Cowboys for Christmas is three unique stories that all intertwine to tell stories about the same time period from different perspectives.
Claire, Georgia, and Mary Catherine are the best of friends, complete opposites, and dedicated to each other no matter what. Together again for Mary Catherine’s Christmas wedding, each one of them falls for a different cowboy that makes their heart flutter.
I loved “Love Me, Cowboy” by Terri Osburn because Claire reminds me of myself and so many other women that often doubt their beauty both inside and out. Claire was on the heavier side for a good portion of her life and her mother constantly reminded her of it. Although she had a one night stand with Mary Catherine’s brother, she believed it to be out of pity and not lust that he spent time with her. It isn’t until she runs into him the week of the wedding that she realizes she may be wrong about the intentions of the cowboy she has been so fond of for so long.
Georgia had no desire to head back to Holly Hills after she moved away. Determined to be rid of cowboys forever, she was not expecting to run into Reed, a sexy Texas animal lover who tends to wounded cattle for a living, let alone fall for him. As an Ivy League volleyball coach, Holly Hills was just not on her to do list anymore but in “Kiss Me, Cowboy” by Liz Talley, her mishap turns into a mistletoe match in Holley Hills. Can Reed convince Georgia to give up her city ways and head back to the hills?
The final story is “Marry Me, Cowboy” by Kim Law. It is here that we see just how Claire and Georgia really feel about the upcoming marriage for Mary Catherine. They are less than thrilled and believe that Mary Catherine is making a mistake. Add the scary step-monster that is trying to control every bit of the wedding and you are a true chick flick in the making. Mary is part of one of Holly Hill’s founding families. With that comes expectations that she must live up to but doesn’t necessarily want to. Of course growing up she was on the cheerleading squad, dated the quarterback, and is now marrying that very same high school sweetheart as everyone expected. Yes they broke up for a bit in college but according to everyone, they were the perfect couple. The dilemma; although they are a perfect couple, they are not necessarily perfect for each other. During their break up, Mary Catherine took a step on the wild side and liked it. She had not thought about Jax Tipton for years but now that she is back in Holly Hills it is hard to forget those steamy blue eyes that keep appearing. Which begs the question: Is Mary Catherine making a mistake? What would life be like if she did the irresponsible thing instead of what is expected of her?
All I can say is this is a must read if you love Christmas stories that inspire you to truly believe in love. The stories complete one another, the cowboys are sexy, and the dedication between the three main characters is inspiring. Give yourself a gift this holiday season with Cowboy’s for Christmas!
