Summary
Believe in second chances this Christmas . . . Ellie Marsden couldn't wait to shake the dust of Branding Iron, Texas, off her heels and chase after bright lights, big city, and a wealthy husband. Now she's come home, divorced, a little disillusioned, and a whole lot pregnant. Leave it to her one-time high school sweetheart, cattle rancher Jubal McFarland, to point out that citified Ellie is as out of place in small-town Texas as her teacup poodle. So why is there something about being back—and being with Jubal—that feels surprisingly right? Jubal's eight-year-old daughter, Gracie, needs a mother, but he hasn't found the perfect woman. Or maybe the problem is that he did find her, and had his heart broken when she left town. Gracie's already falling hard for Ellie and that ball of fluff she calls a dog. And no matter how hard the rugged cowboy tries to resist, there's no denying the appeal of first love and sweet new beginnings—especially when there's a little Christmas magic in the air . . .
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "When pregnant divorcée Ellie Marsden, the heroine in Dailey's third Cowboy Christmas contemporary, returns to Branding Iron, Tex., her plan is to give birth surrounded by family and then hightail it to another big city as soon as she and her child are able. Widower Jubal McFarland, single father to eight-year-old Gracie, is busy trying to raise his daughter and save their ranch. He has no time to rekindle a romance with the woman who broke his heart 10 years ago. He wasn't enough for her then and he doubts he's enough for her now, no matter how much their bodies respond to their spontaneous kisses. The closer Gracie gets to Ellie and her dog, Beau, the more Jubal fears impending heartbreak, so he asks Ellie to keep her distance, something that becomes a struggle for all of them. With schemers, snowflakes, and Christmas magic working against them, they may find out the best gift is not under the tree. The connection between the lovers comes across as plot-driven rather than natural and the resolution is uninspiring, but a hint of mystery will engage readers.
