A Cold Creek Christmas Surprise by RaeAnne Thayne
What Goodreads Says:
"USA TODAY bestselling author RaeAnne Thayne brings readers back to the ranch for an emotional holiday visit with The Cowboys of Cold Creek
Hardened rancher Ridge Bowman has long told himself he has no need for love; just work and his little girl are enough to get him through. But when his cleaning lady, Sarah Whitmore, gets injured on his staircase, well, of course he has to invite her to spend the holidays with him. It’s only the responsible thing to do.
Only, Sarah isn’t really there to work on his house. She came bearing precious artwork belonging to Ridge’s late mother, and possibly a secret that could devastate them both. But as Christmas draws closer, so does Ridge and Sarah convinces herself that she will tell him what she knows as soon as the holiday is over. She might be the key to his past if only he could be a part of her future.
I just can’t get enough of the Christmas Romances that appear this time of year. A Cold Creek Christmas Surprise is the last book in a series about the Bowman family and the first I have read in the series. It does a great job of standing alone.
There is a murder and theft at the heart of Bowman family stories. All four of the children want to know who robbed and killed their parents years ago.
Sarah Whitmore finds part of that answer in a storage unit that belonged to her father. The story unwinds from there.
I loved Sarah. She was strong and knew what was right and what was wrong. She and Ridge Bowman are made for each other but the crime stands between them. This is a sweet romance with a great journey to the HEA. If you love Christmas Romances you do not want to miss this one. It is a well written and well plotted story that might be one of your favorites as it is one of mine.
Harlequin released A Cold CreekChristmas Surprise by RaeAnne Thayne in 2013.
I received an ARC of A Cold Creek Christmas Surprise from NetGalley.
