I just finished reading Cowboy Christmas by Mary Connealy. As with all of the other books written by the talented Mary Connealy, I really enjoyed reading this.
Here is a brief summary book description from the inside of the book: "Get ready for a fun and suspenseful Christmastime romance. Trouble follows singer Annette Talbot to Wyoming—and rancher Elijah Walker finds himself directly in its path. Though still wounded by the betrayal of his ex-fiancée, Elijah finds himself attracted to the secretive singer. When it appears Annie is a threat to his mother’s life, Elijah must decide if Annie’s deep faith and love of God is genuine or if it’s all just a ruse. He decides to trust her—until he discovers she’s a wanted woman. As Christmas draws near, will Elijah respond to God’s gentle persuasion to find the truth before he loses Annie forever?"
Here is what I thought: I really liked the characters and all of the action found inside these pages. Annie Talbot flees St. Louis after her singing job becomes not what she agreed to. Trouble follows her as the people she used to work for chase her down and spread rumors about her, trying to kill people she loves in order to get her back to sing for them so they can attract gamblers.
Annie is repeatedly saved by Elijah, a man who refuses to trust anyone after the woman he thought he loved killed his own father. When false rumors surface about Annie's past, Elijah thinks that she is lying and cannot be trusted.
This book was funny, interesting, and suspenseful. I loved it!
