    A Fun, Inspiring Read

    Wild West Christmas is a fun book about the four Ames sisters, who live on the Rocking A Ranch. Each of the four novellas deals with a different sister. The first, Charlesy's Accountant, tells of youngest sister, Charlesy, as she meets and falls in love with an eastern accountant who knows nothing of working the cattle Charlesy is so good with. The second story, Lucy Ames, Sharpshooter, tells about bold Lucy, who joins Major Paulson's Wild West Show, and finds the adventure she's always wanted, plus much more when she meets Major Paulson's son, Gordon. A Breed Apart, is about third sister Sarah Ames, whose talent lies with training horses. When her father attempts to tame his wild daughter by hiring Carson Romero to take over the horse work so that Sarah can concentrate on her domestic skills, the fireworks ensue. And the last story, Plain Trouble, tells of oldest sister, Bess Ames, who fears that, at age 27, she'll never find love, but winds up finding it with the least likely man.

    All four stories are fun, easy reads. My favorite was A Breed Apart, but each story had a charm all its own. The thing I liked most about these characters was that each had her own special skill or expertise. Even Bess, who was the most domestic of the four sisters, was skilled in tracking.

    I applaud the authors, Kathleen Y'Barbo, Lena Nelson Dooley, Darlene Franklin, and Vickie McDonough, for the wonderful stories that captured my imagination and gave me several hours of enjoyment! This is my first experience reading any of these authors, but it won't be my last!

    Have a Wild West Christmas with four delightful romances

    I read Lucy's story by Darlene Franklin first and was glad I did because it remained a favorite - perhaps because Lucy was the closest to my type A/sanguine personality!

    Outgoing Lucy longs for adventure and is trilled when she auditions and wins a spot in Major Paulson's Wild West Show. The Major's son Gordon, though attracted to Lucy from the start, holds off showing his affection as he struggles with his calling to teach at a distant seminary.

    Lucy's father's plans to marry her to a widowed rancher complicate Lucy's try-to-please-everyone personality and her growing feelings for Gordon.

    In addition to a fiery but charming heroine, there are enough twists and turns before all the issues are resolved to see some great examples of modeling in action on our way to a satisfying ending.

    Maybe you will recognize some of yourself in one of the four Ames sisters' personalities! Every story is intriguing and heart-warming (others also written by top notch writers Kathleen Y'Barbo, Lena Nelson Dooley and Vickie McDonough) with a unique story wrap-up that includes the whole family.

    A great opportunity to relax with the warmth of Texas and four wholesome stories this Christmas season.
