Mistletoe Cowboy by Carolyn Brown


A matchmaking Grandma on a long-distance mission

Mistletoe temptation in every doorway

A sexy cowboy with a killer smile

When Gran Presley agrees to sell Creed Riley the Rockin’ C Ranch for a song at Christmastime, he can hardly believe his good fortune. There’s just one little catch—her tantalizing granddaughter, Sage, is part of the deal... (from the back of the arc)

Title: Mistletoe Cowboy, Author: Carolyn Brown, ISBN: 978-1-4022-7015-4, Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca, Format: Mass-Market Paperback, $7.99/£5.99, How I Read It: Mass-Market ARC from publisher, Rating: 4.5 Crowns

My Thoughts:

Although Mistletoe Cowboy is the 5th book in Carolyn Brown’s Spikes & Spurs Series it reads brilliantly as a standalone book.

First, let me start by saying that whilst reading Mistletoe Cowboy I was torn between reading the book and breaking out my paints. It’s not often that a book inspires me to paint yet I found Sage’s desire to paint to be highly infectious and ended up with two paintings inspired by the book. (Hopefully I will find the courage to share my paintings.)

Creed Riley has entered into an agreement with Ada Pressley: If he tends to Rockin’ C Ranch, to her approval, Ada Pressley will sale him the ranch for a steal as long as he agrees allow her granddaughter, Sage, to live on the property.

Easy, right? What he did not account on was Sage’s attitude problem. Add in a blizzard, a handful of stray animals, and undeniable attraction and you have the perfect book to warm you on a winter’s night.

I could not get enough of this book and found that I was a bit sad to bid it adieu. There is something about Carolyn Brown’s writing that makes me—a city girl born and raised—want to venture out to the country and find me a cowboy of my own.
