Long, Tall Cowboy Christmas (Happy, Texas #2)

LONG, TALL COWBOY CHRISTMAS           CAROLYN BROWN

Nash Lamont is a man about as solitary as they come. That's exactly why ranch life in middle-of-nowhere Happy, Texas suits him. So what the heck is he doing letting a beautiful widow and her three rambunctious children temporarily move in? Before he knows it, they're stringing Christmas lights and decorating the tree... and he's having the time of his life. But after everything he's been through, Nash knows this kind of happiness doesn't last.
Kasey Dawson thought she'd never get over the death of her husband. Nash, with his strong hands and infinite patience, is stirring something she hasn't felt in a long time. Kasey knows the sexy cowboy isn't telling her everything about this past, though. And she refuses to risk heartbreak all over again. But her kids have a plan of their own: Nothing will keep them from having a real family again-even if it takes a little help from Santa himself. 

PAT'S REVIEW

Nash Lamont has come to Happy Texas to open up his family ranch which has been vacant for years after his uncle took off. Dealing with PTSD and other memories from his time as an officer in the Army he is still having nightmares and guilt over a mission that on paper succeeded, but at the cost of men with families, while he had none. Guilt for him is another one of his problems. After being there a while he was expecting to meet Kasey Dawson who is living in the ranch closet to his and with her three children is dealing with her own loss of her husband of two years. After meeting Kasey after one of his flashbacks he begins to realize that she is the wife of one of his soldiers that were killed that day. He had known her husband before they got married and as much as he wants to distance himself he can’t. After he injures himself with a blow to the head he believes that they are married and that the three children are there’s. Going to the doctor he asks her if she could stay at his place for three weeks even after his memory comes back and she agrees. This leads up to Christmas day which she would need to move back to her families’ ranch. The story is good for two people trying to find their way. Add in three children who never knew their father, her mother who does not like him. She did not like the women who her brother married at first from the first book either. The grandmother does and that is what matters, and most importantly they begin to act on helping each other on healing. He is different than her husband and he was able to give her closer and he was hoping he could stop the nightmares. A very good book with many different characters and the children really add to the story. I got this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
