    Great read

    I have to say when this book first started out I wasn't so sure about Gray's character. He's broody and gruff and the way he approaches Abby is odd. Yet the more I read the more invested I was and I couldn't help but hope that Gray and Abby find their way. The story pushes several emotional buttons and you'll find yourself laughing and crying as the story develops. Then there is the ending. It was simply perfect. Not rushed and truly believable. Great characters, wonderful writing and an emotional story made this a great read and one I highly recommend.

    One of my favorite reads of this year!

    Tropes/themes: virgin heroine, unrequited love, marriage of convenience, single dad. A True Cowboy Christmas is one of my favorite reads of this year. Caitlin Crews wrote a beautiful story about love and family with two amazing leads set in the cold Colorado mountains. The story starts out with Gray Everett at his father’s funeral who was a mean old drunk. Gray fears he will turn out to be like his father, but as soon as he sees Abigail he knows he needs to change his life and she’s the one who will help him do so. He proposes a marriage of convenience to her and she accepts. I appreciated that the author didn’t jump straight into the marriage, but rather gave Abigail time to adjust to the idea that her fantasy of marrying her crush will come true. She gives Abigail and Gray time to get to know one another before the marriage and those small intimate moments were so sweet. There are some complex issues concerning family. The author did a good job of dealing with it in a real way and not overdramatic, but sensible. Neither Abigail or Gray had great parents that treated them right. I really felt for them and am glad they found happiness with each other. Thank you so much St. Martin’s Paperbacks for sending me an advance reader copy! All my opinions are my true and honest ones.

    A wonderful and emotional story!

    WOW! That’s what I’m starting out with. So much emotion throughout the ENTIRE book. I was feeling all sorts of extreme emotions! This fantastic story is book one in the Cold River Ranch series and it features Gray and Abby. He just wanted a smooth sailing, practical marriage/life without love he wasn’t capable of giving. She agreed cause she’d been in love with the gruff cowboy practically her entire life. As Abby quickly learns, he was totally serious when he described the type of marriage he wanted from the girl next door. Sometimes the feelings were so unbelievably rough that tears leaked so slowly out of my eyes and just kept going. I wasn’t just reading a story. I was in her head feeling the things she was feeling. I’m still so stuck in that emotional state that I’m finding it hard to pick up the next book. AMAZING writing! I look forward to reading more from this very talented author.

    4 True Stars

    This new series has started off with a heart tugging and heartwarming holiday story full of strong, compelling characters that easily draw readers into their story. Gray Everett decides he’s a needs a wife and Abby Douglas would be the perfect, most practical choice. Abby Douglas has been in love with Gray her whole life, so his proposal is nothing less than a Christmas miracle so she can’t really refuse. The romance throughout this story is full of lots of emotional turmoil that tugs at heartstrings and keeps this couple’s relationship on rocky ground but the sizzling chemistry and Abby’s determination to convince Gray that their growing trust and mutual passion may be leading to true and lasting love. The plot is steady paced and flows smoothly throughout and keeps the suspense building throughout the story as readers wonder whether this couple ever achieve their happily ever after or will stubbornness and a irritable legacy keep them apart. The author brings her story to life with wonderful characters full of depth that makes it easy for readers to connect to the characters as they make life changing decisions during the holiday season which of course adds that hopeful and special ambiance to the story that only the holidays can add. The Everett brothers capture readers’ attention and ensures that readers will want to visit the Cold River Ranch again and again.

    Western Holiday Romance

    A True Cowboy Christmas by Caitlin Crews is a fabulous western romance. Ms. Crews has delivered a well-written book. The characters in this book are outstanding. Kudos to Ms. Crews for this fabulous cast of characters. Gray has worked his father's ranch for years while his brothers went off into different professions. Abby is Gray's closest neighbor and has been in love with him since childhood. Gray and Abby's story is loaded with drama, humor, sizzle and conflict. I enjoyed this book from cover to cover and look forward to reading more from Caitlin Crews in the future. A True Cowboy Christmas is book 1 of the Cold River Ranch Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received from NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
