A Daddy for Christmas by Linda Ford (Cowboys of Eden Valley)


Cowboy to the Rescue

A Daddy for ChristmasSummoned by two little girls to help their mother in distress, Blue Lyons rushes to rescue widow Clara Weston. When the cowboy discovers the fatherless family has nowhere to go, he offers them food and shelter. But widower Blue won't get too close to the needy trio. He's lost too many people he's cared for, and he isn't about to set himself up for loss again.

For Clara, any dangers she may face on the frontier are preferable to staying with her controlling father. Although she's determined to keep her independence, Blue's kindness and tenderness are hard to resist. Can two pint-size matchmakers help Clara and Blue open their guarded hearts in time for Christmas?

My review: A Daddy for Christmas by Linda Ford


Cute story.  It was full of charm.  It had some sad history, but hope for a better future. Some drama. A clean read.  It was also full of scripture, prayer but not preaching just part of the story.

 I loved the characters. Blue Lyons had a sad past.  He was a loner and tried to stay away from children. He was working in the church making the pews.

Clara Weston is a widow with two cute kids. She doesn't want charity. She wants to prove she can take care of her daughters.  She is planning to leave as soon as the stage comes back.

Eleanor is eight years old and Libby is seven.  They pray for different things than their mom. They want to stay where they are.  

I loved watching them interact with Blue.  They helped him so much while he helped them.

I really like the series of Cowboys of Eden Valley.  I look forward to reading sometime the books that I have missed in the series.

I like reading books by Linda Ford.  They are uplifting, full of drama, trials and strong characters.

I was given A Daddy for Christmas to read from Net Galley and Harlequin.  In return I agreed to give a honest review of it.
