A Texas Cowboy's Christmas by Cathy Gillen Thacker

A GIFT AS BIG AS TEXAS

Molly Griffith is ambitious and only wants to give her little boy the opportunities she never had. Which means moving to Dallas, no matter what Chance Lockhart says! Though being with the handsome rancher does make the idea of small-town life more tempting…

Molly has always gotten under Chance's skin, and now that he's bonded with her little tyke, he can't imagine Bullhaven Ranch without them. But the single mom is so focused on her big-city fairy tale, she could miss Chance's offer of the most important gift of all—the love and support of a real family.

My review of "A Texas Cowboy's Christmas": A story with strong characters that are well rounded and believable. The plot revolves around the collaboration of Molly and Chance to prepare for the upcoming Gala, but they cannot seem to be in each other's presence Unfortunately she seems to have closed off her heart to the possibility of love and forgotten the best things in life can't be bought. With Christmas close at hand perhaps the magic in the season will heal old wounds and bring a Christmas miracle or two. My rating for "A Texas Cowboy's Christmas" is 4.25 out of 5 stars. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

I've read dozens of Thacker's books and she always delivers a satisfying story. I love that so many of her's are westerns as a good western romance is not always plentiful. She ranks right up there with the best of them. I love that family is at the root of all of her stories and love the humor that she mixes in. Molly is a single mother and though I gotta give her points for being a super Mom, I didn't much like that she seemed to think that material things were the most important thing in life. Luckily, Chance is able to overlook that and see the real Molly. Frankly, I felt like slapping her silly a couple of times. Braden, Molly's son, was so adorable. Toss in a kid and a cowboy and you'll hook me every time.

A story delightfully filled with Christmas cheer, one adorable little cowboy, and sizzling chemistry between the hero and the heroine. I loved the energy between Chance and Molly, it was nearly visible as they were in the same room, so obvious to everyone around them. I also enjoyed the connection between Molly's son and Chance, there was something really special about those two together. Chance was easy going, kind, generous to the fault, with a big heart and honest to the bone. He said it as it was, he did everything he could to help people he cared for, and stood for his convictions. Molly is a survivor. She has faced a lot and made a difference in her life. And she is willing to do anything to better her son's life. I had a little hard time to understand her, or should I say relate to her priorities, that were money and more money will make a better future. And she seemed to be willing to sacrifice everything for the sake of making more money. But when the rich and famous makes an attempt to pull her into their games and shenanigans she has to figure out fast what is important to her and what is she willing to do to advance her career. Lots of Christmas baking (that I loved!), cute as a button three-year-old cowboy preparing for the holidays, and sensual, ardent romance mixed with pondering of values and ethics. I like it when the story makes me think and evaluate my own beliefs. ~ Four Spoons

In A Texas Cowboy’s Christmas by Cathy Gillen Thacker, Molly Griffith has just one last project to complete before she moves to Dallas. She is in charge of the design and materials to be used on a kitchen renovation on the Circle H Ranch. The only hitch in this situation is that she must combine her crew with Chance Lockhart’s crew and get along with him. Chance is the son of Lucille Lockhart, the owner of the Circle H Ranch, and he is also a builder and owner of the Buckingbull Training Facility. Molly and Chance seem to suffer from mutual aggravation whenever they are together but they need to finish the project in five weeks, for the planned fund-raiser for the Lockhart Foundation and the West Texas Warrior Assistance Gala. There is another problem with this situation. Chance told Molly’s son Braden that he could ask Santa for a bull of his own, not exactly promising Braden that he would bring him one. Molly wants Chance’s help on redirecting Braden’s interests to a Leo and Lizzie World Adventure Train set. Braden has come to look at Cowboy Chance as an idol, and wants to be just like him. Not exactly what Molly had planned for her son. Molly is a single mother who wants only the best for her child. She wants all the material things that money can buy for her son, all the things she never had as a child. Molly plans on moving to Dallas after the first of the year in order to grow her business and be better prepared to provide for her son. Chance has grown up in a well to do family and has discovered that money can’t really buy happiness. While working together, a relationship develops; but can it withstand their different opinions on the value of money and social standing? Will it be able to continue if Molly and Braden move to Dallas? And will Santa bring Braden his bull family for Christmas? This was a warm, funny Christmas story with an important message in it. Money helps but doesn’t guarantee happiness. The characters, even the minor characters, were well developed. The dialog was realistic and the storyline entertaining, it drew you into the story quickly. The character of Braden was so well written that you fell in love with him and his innocents from the start. Overall, one of the best Christmas novels I’ve read this year. Thanks to NetGalley and Harlequin Romance for the ARC copy of this book and I have voluntarily reviewed it.
