Author: Cathy Gillen Thacker Title: A Texas Cowboy's Christmas Publisher: Harlequin Western Romance Publish Date: Nov 8, 2016 Buy: Amazon Book Blurb: Molly Griffith is ambitious and only wants to give her little boy the opportunities she never had. Which means moving to Dallas, no matter what Chance Lockhart says! Though being with the handsome rancher does make the idea of small-town life more tempting…
Molly has always gotten under Chance's skin, and now that he's bonded with her little tyke, he can't imagine Bullhaven Ranch without them. But the single mom is so focused on her big-city fairy tale, she could miss Chance's offer of the most important gift of all—the love and support of a real family.
Review: I have to say, I'm a sucker for contemporary cowboy romances, especially when they are on the sweet side of the romance.
Molly and Chance are two people that have a lot in common but Molly's ambitions and her past relationship with a wealthy guy that didn't care as much for her as she did him, makes her weary of any new relationship with another guy in a different social class.
The real stars of the show are Chance and Molly's song Braden. The little boy really adorable, especially in his desire to have a bull family for Christmas, along with a super popular train set.
Molly is a little bit too much to take at times, because she was really trying to plan out her son's life, when he hadn't started living it. She was planning his life out for him, from a special grade school to getting him into an Ivy League College.
Yeah, she's one of those kind of people.
I can understand wanting what's best for you child, but she does take things a little too far. She takes it to the point where you almost don't like her.
I was thankful that Chance managed to get into Molly's life. His interactions with Braden are wonderful. Its easy to see that he would make a fabulous father.
Then there was his ex and her mother. I wasn't sure the part they were going to play in all of this. When you finally find out, it was a bit disappointing.
This was a sweet holiday romance that will warm you heart for the holiday.
