Marie Ferrarella decided to let us see firsthand what good
people do. That's basically the ongoing thread throughout
HER MISTLETOE COWBOY. In a world where the almighty buck is
revered, we enter a little town -- very little -- of Forever.
It would be easy to dismiss out of hand the existence of
such a town but Ferrarella makes it difficult to do that.
HER MISTLETOE COWBOY is filled with moments of joy, caring,
awakening and possibilities. Sure it's billed as a romance,
but HER MISTLETOE COWBOY is candidly so much more. Nothing
is as powerful as love and respect. I truly love and
respect Marie Ferrarella for telling us this engaging and
Suppose you grow up with everything and yet the world seems
lacking in something important that you just can't put a
finger on. Kimberly Lee has had a great life with all the
basics and more supplied by her successful parents. Her
equally successful sisters are also quick to lend her a
hand. But Kim doesn't need a hand, she needs their respect.
Not easy to win, especially for the one family member who
just doesn't conform to the usual family standards. Kim is
more a visionary -- perhaps with her head in the clouds --
she wants to be a writer. She wants to write about things
that are important and substantial, but first she needs to
break into this demanding profession and that means she is
currently assigned pieces she considers fluff.
Garrett White Eagle and his brother Jackson would be highly
insulted if they knew that Kim thought the piece she was
assigned to write about their Healing Ranch was fluff. And
therein lies the core of MISTLETOE COWBOY.
To Kim, there is always a payoff for acts of kindness, some
sort of monetary reward as the goal. Garrett is at first
rather appalled at Kim's reaction to the atmosphere at the
Healing Ranch and in the town of Forever. But then he
starts to understand. The worlds of Kim and Garrett
couldn't be more different. Garrett is happy and secure in
his. Kim is beginning to question hers.
Once again Marie Ferrarella manages to surprise me with a
story that deeply touches the soul. HER MISTLETOE COWBOY is
about random acts of kindness that shouldn't be random --
they should be expected. I expect great things from
Ferrarella, and with HER MISTLETOE COWBOY she delivers.
Prepare to fall in love with a wondrous town filled with
odd but caring people. HER MISTLETOE COWBOY is the second in her
Healing Ranch series but having not yet read the first, I
can guarantee this story stands on its own.
Kimberly Lee isn't sure what she'll find when she comes to Forever, Texas, to do a story on a groundbreaking program
that could put this small town on the map. It certainly isn't the warm, friendly community that makes the roving
reporter feel instantly at home. Or the accident that lays her up at Garrett White Eagle's ranch, where the blue-eyed
rancher awakens feelings she long ago gave up.
Giving people hope again is the goal of the healing ranch Garrett started with his brother. And the lovely, hardworking
writer is no exception. Doesn't Kim realize how much good they can do—together? Her future is here with him. If she's
willing to trust in a love that could fulfill the promise of forever.
