A heartwarming holiday read from USA Today bestselling author Carolyn Brown
Nash Lamont is a man about as solitary as they come. That’s exactly why ranch life in middle-of-nowhere Happy, Texas suits him. So what the heck is he doing letting a beautiful widow and her three rambunctious children temporarily move in? Before he knows it, they’re stringing Christmas lights and decorating the tree… and he’s having the time of his life. But after everything he’s been through, Nash knows this kind of happiness doesn’t last.
Kasey Dawson thought she’d never get over the death of her husband. Nash, with his strong hands and infinite patience, is stirring something she hasn’t felt in a long time. Kasey knows the sexy cowboy isn’t telling her everything about this past, though. And she refuses to risk heartbreak all over again. But her kids have a plan of their own: Nothing will keep them from having a real family again-even if it takes a little help from Santa himself.

Long, Tall Cowboy Christmas is a sweet romance however for me was really slow at the beginning. I probably enjoyed the last 30% of the book more and at times found myself pushing through the filler stories in the middle.
Kasey was a great mother character and her interactions with her children helped develop the story. I do admit I found it hard to connect Nash and her romantically as he was so closed off. As their relationship was progressing both emotionally and physically the story would all of a sudden stop and turn elsewhere. I did become frustrated at times with their about-face with each other and it wore me down in the end.
Nash was wonderful and nurturing with Kasey’s children and I suppose I needed him to be that for her. The children were my favourite part of this whole story and kept me reading till the end.
Onto the other family, I am sorry but some of them just rubbed me the wrong way with their small town gossip and judgment. There are a number of religious references in this story so if that is not your thing you probably will not enjoy this.
I had not read book 1 of this series and could easily follow the characters referencing past memories and moments that happened in the first book.
