Abby Douglas grew up admiring then loving the neighbor next door.
Always hearing that she is the plain girl that no one could ever want she
believes she is about to get A TRUE
COWBOY CHRISTMAS when Gray Everett proposes. Oh, it isn't a
romantic "I have loved you from afar" proposal, it is a business
proposition, but Abby takes a chance on her cowboy. He needs her
help with his motherless daughter, who is fast growing up and to keep
land developers away from his door.
Gray Everett doesn't know love, doesn't understand it, and thought
Christmas was just another day to work. He also believed that Abby,
the neighbor's lovely granddaughter would make the perfect partner.
She understands working hard and loves what she does. He also
figures he won't have to worry about the experience he endured with
his first wife. Little does he know that a true Christmas miracle is about
to bring the stern cowboy into the joys of life.
A TRUE COWBOY CHRISTMAS will
fill you with many emotions and a few times you will want to tell Abby to
give up because he's a lost cause. I think in this book, the storyline will
show readers that though children are often hurt and shaped by a
parent who is mean-spirited, evil, or just thoughtless, and there are
ways of becoming the person you are meant to be despite them. Abby
grew up thinking that she is plain and uninteresting, where the truth is
her mother is jealous of her lovely daughter and the younger woman's
acceptance and love of her country life. Gray's father was a mean,
miserly man who thought only of working his ranch and not of
developing his son's into men who understand love and honor. Gray
was the only one who stayed of his three sons, so that should tell you
something of the older man.
Abby bravely lets Gray know her feelings, is hurt by his determination
to close off any feelings of his own, and though he forbids the
Christmas spirit even being whispered in his presence, she continues
with her traditions. After a showdown between them, Gray starts
thinking about his life and the influence of the man who raised him,
looks at the possibilities in the future, and chose the next step.
A TRUE COWBOY CHRISTMAS will
probably make you cry because the hardheaded cowboy isn't stupid,
he knows a good thing and knows what he must do to make things
better with her. I am not sure I quite believe that his plan would work
anywhere but this author's imagination and the pages of this book. This
is a good Christmas theme storyline, where love overcomes even life's
toughest, beat in lessons.

Everett is the only cowboy in his family with a heart. The
oldest of the three Everett brothers, he’s the only one who
is trying to keep his family’s cattle land from the fat-cat
investors looking to turn it into cookie-cutter condos.
Never mind the fact that he’s been raising his daughter
alone since his impetuous, wild wife crashed her car years
ago and left him a single father. He wants to keep the land
in his family and work it the way they’ve always done, but
in order to do that, he needs more land. Land from the farm
next to his. And in order to get it, he may have to strike a
deal with the down-to-earth beauty next door…
Douglas grew up on the farm down the road from the Everetts
and has been in love with stern, uncompromising Gray all her
life. She never expected him to notice her—what kind of
cowboy goes after the plain Jane girl-next-door like her?
But when Gray proposes they marry in order to combine land,
Abby knows in her heart she can’t refuse. All she has to do
is make sure he never finds out how long she’s loved him.
But being married to the cowboy of her dreams makes that a
whole lot easier said than done…
