This Christmas season, Christina Grey Cooper has finally accepted that her marriage to her college sweetheart Dare is over.
So she packs up her things, leaves a note, and heads back home for Marietta, Montana in the hope that a Christmas with her family will help piece her head—if not her heart—back together.
Dare isn’t about to let the love of his life go, and who cares if that’s what he thought he wanted? He’ll do what it takes to win Christina back—even if that means suffering through Christmas with his in-laws, pretending to still be happily married for the sake of family harmony, and trying not to get caught up in all that holiday nonsense he’s never believed in…
But Christmas is magical, especially in Montana.
And if Dare has any hope of convincing Christina to give him one more chance, it’s going to be here…
I received my copy from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
Come Home For Christmas, Cowboy is my fifth Christmas themed book that I have read so far as part of the Aussie Readers December Challenge.
It is about Dare and Christina, former college sweethearts who are facing the end of the marriage. Christina finally has had enough of being shut out by Dare so she decides to pack up and go home to her parents in Montana just in time for Christmas.
Dare has deep scars from his childhood and doesn’t believe he is worthy of being loved and he is terrified of starting his own family and making the same mistakes that his father did. I think Come Home For Christmas, Cowboy could have explored Dare’s past a little further. I think this would have made him a lot more likable since I thought he was awful for at least three quarters of the book.
This book was quite angsty, not quite the typical Christmas themed romance although there is plenty of Christmas cheer and a Christmas miracle or two. Montana is a lovely Christmas setting, I can imagine that it would look like a winter wonderland during Christmas.
Come Home For Christmas, Cowboy is a nice and easy Christmas read with a touch of angst thrown in. I would have liked to have seen a little bit more of Christina and Dare’s back-storys but it was still a great Christmas themed romance.
