Part of my 25 Books for the Holidays for 2012

How Mistletoe Cowboy put me in the Holiday Spirit: There is nothing sexier than a Cowboy Romance during the holidays! Maybe it is that I am a Texas Gal but cowboy romances hold a special place in my heart. Throw in a snowstorm, a stray dog (and cat), flannel shirts and I am pretty much in the Christmas Spirit by page 2!

What I thought of the Characters/Story: Mistletoe Cowboy was a very much the fun kind of story that we have come to expect from Carolyn Brown. As always it is her characters that make you just fall in love and cheer them on. I liked both Sage and Creed both from the beginning and was rooting for them to fall together. I am usually not a fan of “insta-love” but during Christmas I can totally buy the shortened time frame. Something about the season screams “FALL IN LOVE” and boy did they ever. Of course I think Gran played a big role in them meeting, that wise old woman and her super smart Indian senses. This story was a great Christmas time read and I am glad it made my holiday reading list!

    I just read a book with insta love and just got annoyed, but here, it just works around xmas :D

  6. Insta-love in some cases I don’t mind… or it doesn’t bug me.

    You said stray dog and cat… yea, that sold me. :)
