Her Mistletoe Cowboy
By Alissa Callen

Have I mentioned I love these Montana born cowboy books? Well I do!! The stories are awesome and sweet.

This story is about Ivy and Rhett, Ivy had enough of her corporate life and a break up with her boyfriend led her to purchase the ancestral home of her Grandfather and made arrangements to move there in Montana home for Christmas, a very cold Christmas. But she also wanted to decorate the home for Christmas. She was also told about a rancher who owned the other home on the ranch.  When she arrived at the ranch, the keyhole was frozen, so she went out walking in the cold to find the other rancher, Rhett, to help her.

Rhett was outside working and saw her walk up, she wasn’t dressed for the snow and she thought looked pregnant, but it was a puppy.  He did help her with the key and to get into the house.

I really loved the way the characters developed, I loved the fact that they each wanted something, but not from each other, Rhett wanted to prove that he can succeed at ranching. Ivy wanted to restore the home her Grandfather grew up in, and wanted to decorate the house for Christmas and do a lot of baking.  I loved the way the writer wrote the feelings Rhett had for his family, and how she showed he had feelings as well and wasn’t a bad cowboy, but that he has a heart as well.

I really enjoyed reading this book and can’t wait to read more, I hope this series continues as I would love to read more about the characters and the town they live in.

This is a clean book.

I received a copy of this book from Netgally for an honest opinion.

What Goodreads says the book is about:

Corporate analyst, Ivy Bishop, intends spending Christmas holed up in an isolated Montana ranch house with only an abandoned puppy for company. When the festive season ends her broken heart might just have had just enough time to heal. 

Ex-rodeo rider, Rhett Dixon, has put his playing days behind him. He has something to prove. Despite being the first son in three generations of ranchers, he is determined to succeed in ranching on his own merits. 

But when Rhett’s new neighbor proves to be far-too-pretty and far-too-compassionate, his single-minded focus deserts him. And the more time Ivy spends with the workaholic, blue-eyed cowboy next door the more she realizes her heart isn’t actually broken – yet.
