Murphy Anderson is coming home for Christmas...

And as soon as she arrives, she's putting the family ranch on the market. Her plan is to get in, get out, and head back to the city, where she belongs. Growing up on the hardscrabble property next door to the prosperous Marvell Ranch, and being constantly reminded of everything she didn't have, left her with no love for ranching, or her handsome neighbors--especially Cody Marvell, who always rubbed her the wrong way. And maybe that's why, when Cody shows an interest in the ranch, she hesitates to sell.

Cody Marvell has a way with people...unless that person is Murphy Anderson. Cody never understood what she was dealing with when they were younger. Murphy had a hard time while growing up, with no mom and a cold-hearted father. He made some mistakes, which he now regrets. He wants her ranch, and more than that, he wants her.

When a Christmas flood makes Murphy's home uninhabitable, he invites her to stay at the Marvell Ranch. With the help of country Christmas magic, Cody hopes she'll start to see him with new eyes.

Murphy had one thing on her mind, get in and get out. Get the house ready for sale and get on with her life. Things didn't happen the way she hoped, but Cody has come to her rescue. Cody and his brothers own the ranch next door, Murphy has no love lost for this family. Cody has invited Murphy to spend the Christmas holidays with him. Murphy is thinking a Christmas fling, might just be ok, but will to turn into so much more. Loved this Christmas story with plenty of traditions, decorating the tree, games. sledding, cookie baking and plenty of romance. Can't wait to read more of the Marvell Brothers. I highly recommend.

A great start to a new series Men of the Marvell Ranch. A winterly Christmas story. Likable characters that I look forward to reading more about. A plot that pulls you in. Jeannie Watt knows how to give you a story that you keep going back to see what will happen next.

This is a fun holiday romance about Murphy Anderson and Cody Marvell who were neighbors when they were younger. Cody was the rich boy who lived at the ranch next to Murphy. Murphy and her father struggled to survive and often ended up working at Marvell Ranch to make ends meet. Murphy secretly had a crush on Cody, but he never seemed to notice her. When Murphy’s father passes away and leaves the house to her, she plans to spend her Christmas holiday cleaning everything up and getting it ready to sell. But, when the river rises and threatens Murphy’s safety, the only person she can call for help is Cody. They spend Christmas together at Marvell Ranch and get to know each other better. Could it be holiday magic that breaks down the walls between them and leads them to each other’s arms? I really enjoyed Murphy and Cody’s story. They were both tough people and set in their ways. But once they got to know each other, things quickly changed. The story was very believable and easy to follow. This is an all-around good book with a lot of Christmas spirit.

So excited to see more of the Marvells as this book kicks off a brand new series featuring the family. I really enjoyed this one and can't wait to read the next. In this book Murphy Anderson is returning home, something she never thought she would do. She plans on selling the family ranch as soon as possible and getting the heck out of there. Cody Marvell never understood why Murphy disliked him but he won't let that keep him from helping her when she needs it. The more time they spend together the more Cody wants her to see him differently. Will he get his Christmas wish? I highly recommend this one.

Murphy Anderson takes advantage of the two week Christmas break to return home to her family ranch to go through her late father's belongings and ready the property for sale. It's the first time she's been home in a decade and she's not looking forwards to the inevitable memories of her bleak and austere childhood. She also isn't looking forwards to being so close to her childhood crush, the boy next door, Cody Marvell and the Marvell ranch which was everything the Anderson ranch was not. But when disaster strikes Murphy ends up spending Christmas with Cody at the Marvell ranch and discovers that not everything was what it seemed when she was younger. I liked this but I didn't love it. About midway through the book I just had the feeling that Cody and Murphy had been decorating the tree and making mulled wine for page after page and nothing seemed to be going anywhere - often a problem when a novel is set in a short time period. For those who pay attention to these things, the romance was practically fade-to-black, short and sweet. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
