June Gable left each of her four granddaughters a handwritten bequest—to spend a season at her beloved farmhouse in Jasper Creek, Oregon, before they sell it. These cousins were once as close as sisters, but time and family betrayals have pushed them apart.
In spring, polished city girl Keira must find her country roots—and reconnect with an old flame. In the summer, tough tomboy JJ needs to tap into her softer side while helping a single dad and his daughters. Cheerful dreamer Lila has to help coordinate the town craft fair in autumn, under the stern eye of the handsome cowboy she loved as a girl. And as winter falls, headstrong, independent Bella must learn to ask for help from the one man she believes she can never have.
The four cousins will have to confront secrets from the past, deal with old wounds they’d rather hide, and tangle with their hardheaded cowboys before they can find love, healing and the true meaning of family…

A Cowboy for All Seasons by Jackie Ashenden, Maisey Yates, Caitlin Crews, and Nicole Helm is a wonderful, connected compilation of romance stories reminding the characters of the strength and love of family. How years melt away, and childhood memories can see us through the most challenging of times. This anthology revolves around a small town, a beloved grandma, four cousins coming home, four hot cowboys worth coming home to, and one life-changing year for this extended family. When Grandma June passed away, she left behind her ramshackle farmhouse filled with love and memories along with letters for each of her four granddaughters, arranging that each one is to spend one season in her home, with each being assigned a separate task that turns out to be a perceptive matchmaking plan in disguise. I loved how all four of these stories work together so beautifully. The healing that these women need is not just within their hearts. Focusing on their family dynamics was exquisitely done, knowing that the four different authors worked together to ensure the flow from one story to another. Each story has a genuine "one true love" theme since our four female characters has never had eyes for, or experience with, any other men. That Grandma June knew this and orchestrated her matchmaking plans accordingly is the thread that ties all the stories together. The girls also find healing in their relationships with each other, just as planned. It's a beautiful anthology, from start to finish, providing a chance to read four different love stories that are connected and together make up one unforgettable, life and love family story. Ms. Ashenden, Ms. Yates, Ms. Crews, and Ms Helm wrote wonderful and moving romance anthology that is not to be missed. Each story gives you warm tingles, emotion, and charming characters and the magic of family, that, by the end, you feel as if you know the minds and hearts of each of its characters, understand their loneliness, their pain, their hopes and their dreams. I highly recommend A Cowboy for All Seasons to other readers.
Enjoyed reading about each of the cousins! Great book to curl up with! Would be wonderful to find a guy like one of those! Also would be great to have a Grandma June too. She really loved her grandchildren. Also, adopted some people who needed to have someone who cared.
Cue all the swoons! I loved every part of this book! One small town, one beloved grandma, four cousins coming home, four hot cowboys worth coming home to, and one life-changing year for this extended family. When Grandma June passed away, she left behind her ramshackle farmhouse filled with love and memories along with four letters - one for each of her granddaughters - arranging for each of them to spend one season in her home, with each assigned a separate task that turns out to be an insightful matchmaking plan in disguise. I loved how all four of these stories - each with their own HEA - work together so beautifully. The healing that these women need is not just with their hearts, and the focus on their family dynamics was exquisitely done, especially because it was done by four different authors throughout each of their stories. The first story is a true second-chance romance, with Keira having returned years after breaking Remy's heart only to find that she now has to work alongside him. Their romance is about so much more than just how they feel about each other, and I was simply enthralled as they each had to come to terms with all the family issues that were lying just beneath the surface. Next up is JJ, who finds herself helping out the now very grown-up Cade with his motherless daughters. I loved how this story drew both JJ and Cade out of their shells, forcing them to confront long-buried feelings as they make a new life together. Fall brings the delightfully optimistic Lila, who finds that she has a second chance with the guy she humiliated herself for seven years before. Everett is one tough nut to crack, however, as he's crafted a protective outer shell that keeps him from risking it all. Her sunny disposition hides the still-devastating effects of a troubled childhood, one that she is able to find healing for through reconnecting with her sister, JJ. The last story brings the broken Bella to town, desperate to find her own way, and just as desperate to stay away from her ex-stepbrother, Noah, who just happens to be the one person Grandma June put in her path. This romance nearly broke my heart, with both Bella and Noah hurting so deep before they find their healing path to love. All of these stories have a solid "one true love" theme as each of our main female characters has never had eyes for, or experience with, any other men. That Grandma June knew this and orchestrated her matchmaking plans accordingly is the thread that ties all the stories together. The girls also find healing in their relationships with each other, just as planned. It's a beautiful story from start to finish, a rare opportunity to read four different love stories that together make up one unforgettable, life- and love-affirming family saga. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
We get a little bit of everything here, a second chance romance, a single-dad romance, a first love romance, and a former step-siblings romance. All are packed with emotions, all have a rocky ride to the HEA, and all have our women ending up with their cowboy
