Great Holiday Read! Feb 7, 2009
Penniless widow Jenny Collins has to make a new start in Dry Creek for her two small chilfen. She also has to do something for Christmas and she fears she's not doing a very good job of it. Enter rodeo champion Zach "Lightning" Lucas who picture on the back of a cereal box Jenny can hardly admit she's told her deepest secrets.
However the real Lightning Lucas seems to Jenny to be a far cry from the image on the back of the box. He's worldly wise and in a great hurry to get to a showgirl in Las Vegas. So, why does he seem so set on staying in Dry Creek with a great blizzard coming? Perhaps just pity for a woman in her sorry situation.
Jenny had no money to buy a tree and now they're snowed in, so Zach takes them on a little journey down the road to chop down a tree. Once they get a this sort of lopsided tree into the house they have no ornaments, so they start making decorations. Soon this little foursome has embarked on what is becoming the most meaningful Christmas of their lives.
Janet Tronstad seems to so easily get inside the male psyche and make it understandable to this woman reader.
Love this series Jan 14, 2009
I have read every book of this series and now I am starting to read this book. If it is anything like the other books then this one will be a good read. Janet Tronstad has become one of my favorite authors. She has brought to life this little town and the people who live there. At the same time she is bringing in new people to populate the town of Dry Creek, Montana. Usually a single woman with or without children and a local single man meets and with the help of Mrs. Hargrove and Charley Nelson they find acceptance and romance. If you love a good romance and some humor you"ll love this series.
This is an excellent read Jan 13, 2009
It's the 3rd book I've read this year and already the 2nd one to go to my Top Ten list - and the year just started! It's also the 2nd book in a row to hit the top ten by the same author. I've read over a dozen of this author's books and these last 2 seem to portray an emotional level above any of her earlier works.
Jenny Collins is a widow with 2 kids. Almost penniless, she moved her young family to her only possession of worth - a small house on an acreage outside of Dry Creek, Montana. Barely any furniture and no job, Jenny has a tough time providing what they need but they have a roof over their heads and lots of love.
Unfortunately there isn't any money for a Christmas tree or decorations or even for the items on their Santa's wish list but she'll hope they'll understand, young as they are.
They won't be spending Christmas alone, however. Rodeo champion Zach Lightning drives through town 2 days before Christmas looking for a vet for his horse. The part-time vet takes the horse and in exchange Zach must deliver the last mail run before Christmas. His last stop is Jenny's house. He's a bit worried when he sees her lack of furniture and there's a storm coming but she reassures him she has someone to call if she needs help. Zach gets in the postal truck and heads to town, determined to get his horse and head out to Las Vegas where a willing showgirl is waiting with open arms.
But Zach has a stowaway. Jenny's daughter has decided to go to the North Pole and she's hidden in the postal truck. Zach brings the girl back to a frantic Jenny but by then the storm has hit and he's stuck at her place. He thinks that maybe being snowbound with a gorgeous widow won't be so bad if he can get her away from the kids for some snuggles and cuddles, but he soon realizes that Jenny is a church-goer who doesn't fool around.
Over the next couple days, Zach sees Christmas not only through a child's eyes, but through the eyes of people who love each other - something he missed in his own childhood. So, he'll have a nice Christmas and then split because he doesn't do the church thing and this isn't the life for him.
