SEASON'S READINGS A True Cowboy Christmas by Caitlin Crews
 
A True Cowboy Christmas (Cold River Ranch, #1)Cold Creek Ranch #1, I love when new series start off with Christmas books. Cold Creek Ranch is in Colorado up high in the Rocky Mountains, a hard place to live. I really enjoyed this book I loved the characters; Gray, Abby, and Becca were well written and easy to connect with. Gray is a hard man being raised by a man who was hateful, ungrateful, and just plain ornery Gray was determined never to be like his father. The biggest way to do that was to not repeat his mistakes he's already done it once and payed the price for it, marrying a flaky girl who couldn't keep her pants on, had no interest in staying at Cold Creek Ranch and died leaving with her lover. One good thing did come out of the marriage his daughter Becca. With his old man dead and buried and his brothers, Ty and Brody, wanting to sell of the land the brothers start to argue. Brody and Ty worry about Gray and they are afraid he will end up like their father, all alone and mean. So Gray comes up with the idea that he needs a wife, one that he knows is steadfast, loves Longhorn Valley and Cold Creek, someone with roots just as deep as his.

Abby Douglas has always loved Gray Everett and now he's proposing to her, something she's always dreamed of but not for the right reasons. Ever since Gray came up with the idea of marrying Abby he's looked at her in a new light more as a woman than just his neighbor and he likes what he sees. The more time he spends with her the more the attraction grows but Gray has spent to long with the main focus of his life as the ranch he's already more like his father than he thinks. All Gray needs is Abby's steadfastness, her unassuming beauty, and her honesty to knock some sense into him but is she willing to risk her heart for something that may never be reciprocated?  
 
Overall, this was a heartfelt and emotional read. The Everett boys aren't 100% mended but they are off to a great start.Abby and Becca have so much in common they form a quick bond and they are good for each other just as much as Abby is good for Gray. This story was addictive I didn't want it to end I look forward to the rest of the series.

Hogfather: Discworld, Book 20 - Random House Audiobooks,Terry Pratchett,Nigel Planer

"Education had been easy.

 

Learning things had been harder.

 

Getting an education was a bit like a communicable sexual disease. It made you unsuitable for a lot of jobs and then you had the urge to pass it on."

With my education long behind me but my learning far from finished, this quote made me go - what a wise man Terry Pratchett was - then I thought about how quickly he'd have seen through my self-serving stance. 

 

The thing about reading Pratchett is that, while I might hope to be like Grimes or Ventinarri, I know that theirs are robes I can only wear when Pratchett helps me shrug into them.

Hercule Poirot's Christmas - Agatha Christie

"Your mother had the brains of a louse! And it seems to me she´s transmitted those brains to her children." He raised himself suddenly up. A red spot appeared on each cheek. His voice came high and shrill. "You´re not worth a penny piece, any of you! I´m sick of all of you! You´re not men! You´re weaklings - a set of namby-pamby weaklings. Pilar´s worth any two of you put together! I´ll swear to heaven I´ve got a better son somewhere in the world than any of you, even if you are born the right side of the blanket!"

 

When it comes to dysfunctional families, the Lee family definitely takes the cake. A very toxic Christmas to all of them.

 

Christie clearly must have had fun writing the character of Simeon Lee, the old patriarch of the family. Otherwise I can´t explain all the cackling and sinister hand-rubbing his character is doing throughout the story.

 

It´s so much fun and so far I´m having a blast with this book.
