My Review:

What a short, sweet but highly emotive read this turned out to be! Holly Adams has returned to her hometown for Christmas, two years after a rodeo accident killed her husband. She’ll be thirty on Christmas Eve but she has been going through the motions rather than living since her husband’s tragic death and has been given a to-do list to help her start living again. With advice from two older people in the local coffee shop, a bell to ring from Nick and meeting the man she kissed after first imbibing beer as a teenager, will the blizzard conditions which trap the two together help to defrost her heart and open her up to love and life again?

With great characters, this short book packs in a lot of feel-good emotions. It is well written, making it so easy to empathise with Holly who is trying to overcome the grief of the last few years. Levi is so caring, considerate and has great intentions, though many of these succumb to temptation in the end! A great festive read that I highly recommend, I loved it!

This is my honest review.

Synopsis

Holly Adams returns to her hometown with a simple to-do list from her therapist:

  1. Return to your roots,
  2. Face your fears, and
  3. Listen to your heart.

But Holly hasn’t been back since a tragic accident claimed the life of her young husband. Returning home is one thing. Facing her fears and giving her bruised heart a voice are quite another. Cowboy Levi Garrett remembers Holly as the brazen girl who once stole a kiss at a high school party, and barely recognizes the heartbroken young widow who ends up stranded at his ranch on Christmas Eve. All he wants is to remind Holly of the fearless girl she used to be. It’s holiday magic when a winter storm traps the pair together, but will Holly be able to hear her heart when it asks for a Cowboy for Christmas?
