Short and Sweet Book Reviews #66 - The Holiday Gift by RaeAnne Thane, Everything for Her by Alexa Riley, Wind River Rancher by Lindsay McKenna

The Holiday Gift (Cowboys of Cold Creek, #15)The Holiday Gift by RaeAnne Thayne
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a nice sweet filler story that gives the last sister at the Christmas Ranch her HEA. Faith just wants everything to stay the same. No more bad news or life changing events. I think many of us can identify with Faith but we all know we must move on. Faith finally does when she realized that losing Chase Brannon, her best friend, is worse than admitting that she loves him. Will stand alone but more fun if you have read the previous two books.

Everything for Her (For Her #1)Everything for Her by Alexa Riley
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

What do you do when you find out that someone has controlled your life for years and things you felt you earned were really given to you. That same someone is obsessed with you and will do everything for you. That is the question in Mallory Sullivan's life when she discovers that Miles is really an OZ behind the curtain. First in a series. I was not comfortable with Miles and I wondered how Mallory would handle him. Nice story but I would hope that it never happened in real life.

Wind River Rancher (Wind River Valley, #2)Wind River Rancher by Lindsay McKenna
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This deals with a very serious issue facing many of our vets - PTSD. Every one of the main characters in this story are returning vets who have hit rock bottom and find help at Wind River Ranch. Reading the book made me want to go back and read book one in the series, Wind Rive Wrangler. There was a little to much of a preaching tone to part of the book but in spite of that I loved the story and the main characters. Both have to come back from multiple problems. Shaylene Crawford is a vet who owns and runs the ranch. Reese Lockhart is her newest vet hire. Reece is on his last leg when he gets to job at Wind River Ranch. He and Shaylene have an immediate connection and work well together. There is another big problem in Shaylene's life, that is her Father. Look for a bit of a cliff hanger at the end. A very good series about a very serious issue.
