    Two Wonderful Holiday Stories

    It was great to visit Cowboy Creek again. If I lived during this time in history, I would want to live in this town! I love the cast of characters that live in this town! In this book we get to meet four more people! First we meet Marlys and Sam. At first Marlys (love the name, by the way!) was a little hard to get to know but then you learn her back story and you understand why she acts the way she does! She's a doctor of "alternative" medicine - very strange in those days! She hopes the people of Cowboy Creek will embrace her and her different ways, especially because she's a woman. Imagine her surprise when she discovers her ex-fiancée, Sam, lives in the same western town! Their story is fun and sweet! Sam is a newspaper guy with a young son and I immediately loved him! His son is adorable too! The other couple we meet is Beatrix and Colton. Beatrix's story is very compelling! She speaks very little English and has only come to America because she is an unwed mother and was shamed in her country. I can only imagine coming to a foreign country, alone, pregnant and not speaking the language. You don't know anyone and you suddenly go into a complicated labor! Enter Colton - a man in town who speaks a little German so he helps the doctor while Beatrix is going through labor. He decides to marry Beatrix at that time so her baby will have a father & a name since Beatrix might die. What a selfless act! I kept thinking what I would do in that circumstance! Well, Beatrix doesn't die and suddenly Colton & Beatrix are spouses, trying to figure out how to live a marriage of convenience! I loved this story!

    Two beautiful novellas situated during the first Thanksgiving festivities where both women have to make a decision between two destinies both alluring on their own merit. In Mistletoe Reunion by Cheryl St.John Marlys and Sam has a second chance to built a future together. Marlys is a doctor of advanced medicine and has always been career oriented and sure of it that she should choose between career or happy marriage. But Sam sees her as she is, and respects her knowledge and abilities, and encourage her to make a difference in the field of medicine no matter what the consequences. I felt the struggle they had, from their past connection to trusting again, the experimental status of Marlys's treatments, the wonder of what the future holds. But with adjusting and compromise, they find a way to each other again until Marlys gets a career offer like no other. Very forward thinking and thought provoking tale with sweet romance and trusting in faith to guide them to their destiny. Mistletoe Bride by Sherri Shackelford is an intense and fragile tale of a marriage of convenience. The aftermath of the European war makes its ugly head rise up in the Kansas town where Colton does his best to protect his sudden and unplanned bride. The circumstances of their marriage are peculiar yet with time and care the true feelings grow. I loved Colton and Beatrix. The fragility of the situation they are in was palpable. The obstacles on their way were enormous, yet their willingness to work on their relationship, to compromise and accept each other was remarkable. The stories parallel each other as the two couples are fumbling into love during the first Thanksgiving celebration. Their journeys are filled with hindrance and challenges, but with faith, hope, and love in the play, they have a fighting chance to find the forever and a day kind of love in their lives ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side
