Overview

Only she could open up his closed-off heart

Lea Dunwoody has always been the classic girl-next-door right down to the tips of her elf booties she wears as a volunteer Santa's helper. One night her bestie teases her that she should make a play for the handsome bad boy Braden Delaney as she's always been better with animals than people and Braden is rumored to be a total Scrooge. Braden has always tempted Lea and then the night of the Corbyn Christmas Open House, she sees him make a wish on an evening star. Does she dare make a wish for her own fairytale?

Braden Delaney has had it bad for Lea since...well, forever. As soon as he realized how boys and girls were different, she'd been the only one he had eyes for. But the Delaney men aren't easy for the women they love so Braden has kept his distance. Until this Christmas. He's tired of spending the holiday alone.

He normally avoids the holidays, but this year Lea is giving him a reason to celebrate the season.

Texas Christmas Tycoon by Katherine Garbera is book number three in the Dangerous Delaney's series.  This is Lea Dunwoody and Braden Delaney's story. Lea and Braden have suffered loses and difficult times in their life. Braden still hasn't recovered from his mother's death or his sister and her husband's death but is trying to move on for his nephew.  Lea's parents are divorced and has a strange relationship with her mother. I could understand Braden's difficulty in moving on but at times I wanted to shake Lea and try to get her to see what her mother was doing to her. This is a story that will tug at your heart.  I did enjoy Lea and Braden's story.  I loved the supporting characters who added so much to the story. I  voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

This was the third book in this series. It was a really cute and sweet Christmas read. It was also one of those stories that really tugs at your heartstrings and stays with you long after you have finished reading it. The author did a really great job with the story line. I found that even though the events that happened were really sad that she made the Christmas story special. I am looking forward to going back and reading the first 2 books in this series. I voluntarily reviewed this book in exchange for an honest review.

Texas Christmas Tycoon by Katherine Garbera is another visit to my favorite fictional Texas town of Last Stand. The outlaws’ descendants are back for Braden’s story. The accident that happened when the overall series started has affected the Delaney family more than many of the others. A sister is lost and a child is left orphaned so the Christmas season is difficult. While this is a heartwarming story it could be a trigger for anyone who has lost a loved one this past year. The first holiday season is hard. I remember thinking of a Dolly Parton song about it being a hard candy Christmas. Braden has had more than his share of those. Many are his own doing as he shields himself from a potential loss being too important to him again. Lea Dunwoody has had her own share of losses but I admitted this woman’s grit and resilience in spite of her mother’s mistakes. It takes these too rather a long time of dancing around each other to make a real move. I wanted to push them together but really, I have known people who have done exactly like these two do. Texas Christmas Tycoon is a wonderful addition to the series with just a hint of The Christmas Carol in it. Thank goodness for one little boy who brought these three grown brothers back home to stay. This is one of my favorite Last Stand Series. 4.5 Stars An ARC of the book was given to me by Tule Publishing which I voluntarily chose to read and reviewed. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

TEXAS CHRISTMAS TYCOON by Katherine Garbera. This is a first for me, both by the author, and accordingly, the series. It is books 3 so there is a bit of history that feel I missed out on, although the author did offer some background. I liked Lea - she is sweet and was so wonderful with Lane. I sort of liked Braden - I truly did not get his whole aversion to the holidays. Yes, it was explained, yet, for me, it just didn't jive. The author's writing style was fluid and read easily. Hearing Lane ask Santa for his Christmas wish did bring a tear to my eye. Overall, this is a pleasant read filled with love and family and the wonders of the the holiday season.

This is one of those stories that will tug at your heart - often. It’s an emotional journey we take with Braden and Lea. Having had nothing but seeing their parents in bad relationships, they didn’t think they could ever love another because when the only examples you have are fraught with pain, you associate one with the other. There are others in the book who also have had poor experiences but were able to overcome them, who provide some what-ifs and maybes for Braden and Lea. This is a wonderful Christmas story that shows not everyone has a merry holiday. I received an advanced reader copy from the publisher in exchange for my volunteer review.

I was given an Advance Reader’s Copy in exchange for my review. This is book three of Dangerous Delaney’s. This was a sweet easy read, my favorite character was Lea and I loved the relationship between her and little Lane. A love story that takes awhile, but is well worth the read.

But the Delaney men aren’t easy for the women they love so Braden has kept his distance. Until this Christmas. He’s tired of spending the holiday alone. He normally avoids the holidays, but this year Lea is giving him a reason to celebrate the season. This is Lea Dunwoody and Braden Delaney's story. “You need help with your holiday cheer?” Lea asked. “I do,” he admitted. “I’ve heard through the grapevine that you’re a bit of a Scrooge,” she said. What does spirit of Christmas mean?” three-year-old Lane Maverick asked. The words were a bit garbled but clear enough as Braden Delaney held his nephew on his lap in the family room of the Delaney Ranch, the onetime hideaway of outlaws back when Texas was a republic and not a state. It had been Braden’s home for his entire life and as much as his brothers had wanted to get out of Last Stand—the Texas Hill Country town they’d been born and raised in—he’d never wanted to leave. The youngest of the brothers by a good five years, he’d been closest to Rose, their only sister and Lane’s mom, who’d been killed in a car accident back in April. “It just means that you…ah, heck, kid, I’m not the right one to ask,” Braden said. Lane shifted on his lap, turning his face up toward him, and for a moment Braden had to wonder about a world that would take the parents from a kid like Lane. He’d never had much Christmas spirit but this year he was finding it even harder not to be super-Grinchy all the time. “Why not?” Lane asked.

A great holiday read by Katherine Garbera, Texas Christmas Tycoon, book three in The Dangerous Delaneys series. Great storyline and character development that kept me reading until the last page.

For me, this was a 3.5 stars story. I have to confess that this is the first book I read by this author, and therefore , the first book in the series I have ever read. Because of this , I felt I missed some of the background stories that make up the Delaney family and their friends that the reader was suppose to already know. Because of that , I didn’t fully connect with the characters. That said it was touching, sweet, and at times cute . Touching because the Delaney family and their friends were trying to make little Lane’s first Christmas without his parents special. Sweet , cute and again touching , seeing Lea and Braden dance around each other. One being the Christmas Scrooge and a flirt, and the other, the elf that really love Christmas and doesn’t do flings or one night stands. Will these two find out that they might have a future together or will doubts and fears keep them apart? I was entrusted a copy of this book by Tule Publishing.
