12 Days of Christmas Review: A COLD CREEK NOEL by RaeAnne Thayne

About the book:

Caidy Bowman had been the apple of her family’s eye—until a devastating tragedy forced her to hide from the world. She was used to devoting her time to the animals on her family’s ranch. Then widower Ben Caldwell and his two adorable children arrived in Pine Gulch, and suddenly, Caidy wanted more than a life in the shadows….

As the town’s new vet, Ben needed a place to stay for the holidays—and for his family to heal from their own loss. He absolutely wasn’t looking for love again! But Caidy Bowman’s sparkling green eyes and sweet smile touched Ben’s broken heart, giving him hope for a new future. Their future—if he could convince the beautiful cowgirl that Christmas was a time for new beginnings.

A COLD CREEK NOEL is a very sweet book about new beginnings and overcoming the past. Caidy has hidden herself away on her family’s ranch. She takes care of her brothers and their growing families along with the animals. Caidy has always felt that her life was full, if not complete, until she meets the new vet in town and the longing for something more starts building within her. Ben has moved his family for a new beginning after the death of his wife. He hopes to reconnect with his kids and find some way to rebuild the relationship that his in-laws had tried their hardest to tear down. These two characters don’t believe that they are ready for a relationship, but love doesn’t care if a person is “ready”. I loved the slow progression of the romance and the build up of the attraction between Ben and Caidy. They are instantly attracted, but don’t act on it. They think through their feelings and thing about the consequences for Ben’s children. A COLD CREEK NOEL is an emotionally satisfying holiday story with a very sweet happily ever after.
