My review: The Christmas Ranch by Raeanne Thayne
I was sad to see the end. I wanted to spend more time at Christmas Ranch. The characters were real. I want to read more Sparkle books. Really magical. This is fun clean Christmas story.
Hope Nichols decides to come home from teaching school abroad. She finds Christmas Ranch is closed for good and wants to reopen it with only a short time to get things fixed up and ready.
Her sisters do not want too.
Faith has two children. She lost her husband just months ago and has enough just to keep the ranch going with help.
Celeste is a librarian who has wrote a children's book just for her niece and nephew.
Aunt Mary Nichols helped raise the three girls in their teen years after they lost both parents. She has slowed down a lot now though.
Rafe Santiago has come to the small town of Pine Gulch to take care of his nephew after his sister is in jail. Rafe retired from being a Seal. He is going to take his nephew back to California after his sister is sentenced. Rafe feels guilty about the mission in his past when he first met the Nichols sisters. He wants to help Hope fix up the ranch while he is in town.
Christmas Ranch has reindeer petting zoo, Christmas lights scenes, tow rope for sledding, Santa Claus. It has been a tradition for years.
It leaves you feeling good when your reading The Christmas Ranch. I want to read the next two books now not wanting to wait.
I was given this ebook to read by Net Galley and Harlequin. In return I agreed to give honest review of The Christmas Ranch.
