A Rancher for Christmas by Brenda Minton

A Family for Christmas

Raised on the run, free-spirited Breezy Hernandez has never stayed in one place too long. But now that she has joint custody of her late brother's twin daughters, she's determined to give them a stable home. Even if it means cooperating with the twins' bossy uncle. Texas rancher Jake Martin learned the hard way that women can't be trusted. But as he and Breezy care for the orphaned girls, Jake begins to open his heart. Is Breezy ready to put down roots in Martin's Crossing, or will she run from the one thing she's always wanted: a family?

My review: A Rancher for Christmas by Brenda Minton (Martin's Crossing)

4 stars

This is a charming story that has both sad and happy times. It has you thinking what does Christmas mean to you? What makes a family? Has drama, a little mystery or two. A small town that I would like to get to know the characters of it. Lots of relationships with other characters. It also talks about prayer, church & nativity in a way that is just part of the characters lives.

I liked that Breezy was able to protect herself. That she was also willing to reach out to others. Breezy really had no one to take care of her the right way. She was always on the move as a child. Now she just found out she had a brother and he died before she could come visit him. He left her co-guardian of her twin nieces.

Jake Martin and his twin sister helped at age 12 to take care of his younger brothers and sister. Now his twin and his best friend have died and left him to take care of the twins. Jake has trouble trusting that women won't leave him. He wants what is best for Rose & violet.

Rose & violet just lost their parents two weeks ago. They are toddlers who don't understand. They also lost their grandparents this past year.
They are cute and a handful.

Martin's Crossing, Texas is a small town that is the new series Brenda Minton is spinning off her Cooper's series.

I want to come visit Martin's Crossing and see what happens next.

I was given this ebook to read by Netgalley and Harlequin. In return I agreed to give honest review of A Rancher for Christmas.
