Callie Brewster didn’t figure she’d ever see Finn O’Donnell again when they parted company in Afghanistan. But when her little brother witnesses a killing, everything changes. The government says they’ll put him in witness protection, but Callie doesn’t trust anyone to protect her brother—except for Finn O’Donnell.
All Finn wants for Christmas is some peace and quiet on his newly purchased ranch. But he owes Callie Brewster his life, and he always repays a debt. Now there’s a woman in the house who joined the army to get away from ranching, a boy who is scared of his shadow, and a feud going on amongst the other ranchers. Yet in the midst of all the chaos, Finn is happier and more at peace than he’s ever been before…
I’m already celebrating the feeling of Christmas with books, and Cowboy Boots for Christmas evoked that warm feeling. It starts with a man, Finn O’Donnell enjoying his solitude on his new ranch, and then arrives Callie Brewster and her nephew, they seem to be running from trouble.
The was this set up of suspense because of what Callie is running from, but it doesn’t really come into play with the expected being pursued, instead it’s a heartwarming tale of two friends falling in love. Callie and Finn have a long history, and they really do have amazing chemistry, but they’re so blind to their love that they’re the last to know.
There is also this great Hatfield and McCoy-esque feud going on in Burnt Boot, and I loved that crazy aspect of the town. It’s so full of fabulous secondary characters that I’m looking forward to more in the series.
I highly recommend this story, it has all the aspects of a great small town romance with great Christmas feelings.
