ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Chrisitine lives with her husband and two precious daughters in the foothills of the beautiful Ozark Mountains in her home state of Arkansas. Her greatest earthly joy is her family and, aside from doing God’s will, spending time with them is her top priority.
She recently took a break from writing romance to pen a Christmas story with a twist. Her Mom Lit novella, My True Love Gave to Me, is part of a 2 in 1 anthology from Barbour entitled All Jingled Out. It’s also included in Simply Christmas, a 4 in 1 Barbour anthology. One of my holiday highlights was seeing Simply Christmas at Sam’s Club a few weeks before Christmas.
She has written two other novellas, both romance, which are included in Barbour anthologies, City Dreams, and Prairie County Fair and a serial for the Heartsong Presents book club newsletter – The Carousel Horse. The Carousel Horse can be read in its entirety on the Heartsong website, and you can read excerpts from all of her other books on her website, HERE
In 2003, Christine was honored by being voted #2 Favorite New Author by the Heartsong Presents Book Club members!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Actress Crytal McCord gave up the closeness of her big family in order to make a name for herself on the New York City stage. But when life in the Big Apple turns sour, she follows a country road back to her parents Arkansas ranch.
The last thing she expects to find in cowboy country is a new leading man. Still, she can't help but imagine handsome rancher Jeremy Buchanan in the role.
Unfortunately, Jeremy's been burned by Crystal's type before. Or has he? Every time he thinks he knows her, the multi-faceted woman surprises him. Will the reluctant pair allow their hearts to guide them, or will their common stubborn pride keep them miles apart?

I enjoyed this book it was another I didn't want to put down. I found it easy to get into and read and like all of Christine's books a great story. I liked how Characters from Along came a Cowboy are also in this book but if you hadn't read that book you would still follow this one as its totally different. Reading Crystal and Jeremy's respective stories was heart wrenching and heartwarming at the same time. I like how we often have preconceived notions of people only to find that they are not always the way we thought. This happens in this book. I would recomend this book to any who love reading about ranch life or anyone wanting a good read. I give this book 5 out of 5.
