Review: Christmas at Cade Ranch

Christmas at Cade Ranch Christmas at Cade Ranch by Karen Rock
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really loved this book dealing with self doubt, addiction and a single mom trying to make a better life for her child, and learning to be strong enough to overcome her past.

The setting is on a cattle ranch in Montana where Sofia finds herself after being
Stranded when she loses her wallet and a meeting with her ex-boy friend's mother who has been looking for her.

The story just keeps getting better and better. A must read for the coming holidays. Lots of action from a blizzard to a barn dance, a fist fight and love. I love Karen Rock's books.
