A Cowgirl's Christmas by C. J. Carmichael

For years Callan Carrigan has been her father's right hand man, so when her dad's will names city slicker Court McAllister the new owner of The Circle C Ranch, Callan feels betrayed on every level.

Then she and her sisters find their mother's diaries, hidden from them by their father since their mother's accidental death 18 years ago, and the shocking revelations explain a lot. Reeling, Callan seeks refuge in the local saloon, where it seems no one can reach her, until Court offers her a challenge.

If she agrees to be foreman at the Circle C for one year, he'll deed the ranch back to her and her sisters. The deal seems too sweet at first--until Callan realizes Court has his eyes on something she protects even more than her family's land--her heart.

Great Callen was the last of the girls on the ranch. She and her dad were going out to see about getting the herd brought in for winter, when he had his heart attack. He died on the way to the hospital. Boy did the girls get a surprise when the will was read. Court was left his uncles ranch except for the house.

Callan's father has passed away. Her cousin Court has been summoned by the family lawyer for the reading of the will. Callan's nor any of her sisters have ever met him. The will gives the 4 girls lots of money and Callan the house but the ranch was given to Court. Everyone is in shock - how could their father do that to Callan? She loves the ranch. This is a well written story explaining all the family secrets. Can't wait to read the next book.

Another book in Marietta, MO or at least close by. This one isn't set at the same time as the other ones I read this season. It is a bit confusing keep these series straight and I think to really do that you might need to read them all in order (if there is a time sequence being followed by all of them). But if you don't care about keeping it all straight then it can be read easily as a stand-alone.

I like the "real-ness" of this story. Life is not always picture-perfect, our parents do let us down and things don't always work out as we planned. Yet life is good when you have people ho care about you. Very sweet story.

There wasn't much of a romance that I expected, more of how people deal with grief and loss and Daddy issues. I still liked it, though

C.J. Carmichael has another hit on my shelf. This is a wonderful emotional true to life story of a working ranch. This is the conclusion of Circle C, very sad to say goodbye to the sisters. The story focuses around Callan, who looses her father in the very beginning and then more family secrets come out from letters that their mom left the girls, to be opened upon the death of the parents. The story of recovering from a loss, forgiveness and finding love when you least expect it. Once again, a wonderful conclusion to Circle C, I highly recommend this book, it is better if you read this book last in the series.

Carmichael had me in tears well before the end of the 1st chapter.  She also made me laugh more than a time or two.  I was emotionally engaged and intellectually stimulated throughout this short but sweet story.  I love the way Carmichael takes a read, down to earth look at ranch life.  It isn’t a rodeo.  It’s the hard work and rewards that are at the forefront.  Her vivid & picturesque descriptions take you to Montana while her captivating storyline keeps you there.  Readers receive shock upon shock alongside the characters, really keeping them on their toes.   Getting to know these characters definitely added to my enjoyment of the novel.  The main characters were fantastic individuals separately and explosive together.  Carmichael makes sure that we get to know them in a very real way.  We find out some little tidbits about them, and some big, explosive events that have shaped who they are.  The supporting cast was brilliant as well.  Assuming that you’ve read previous Carrigans of Circle C novels you’ve met the sisters and their significant others before, but even if you haven’t, Carmichael lets us get to know them in a way that this can just as easily be read as a standalone as part of the series. I definitely found myself thoroughly enjoying this novel through and through.    Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

The perfect ending for the Carrigans of Circle C series. CJ Carmichael writes stories with characters so believable they could be people you know. The Carrigan girls’ lives are shook up when a family secret comes to light. Each deals with it in their own way. But for Callan, her life will never be the same, especially after the arrival of Court McAllister. This review is hard for me to write without giving away too many spoilers, so I will just say you have to read it. It’s a story about life, loss, and finding love when you least expect it. I think this book is the best of all of the Carrigans of Circle C books and one of the best that I have read by CJ Carmichael.
