4.0 out of 5 stars Great Read for Holiday Inspiration! 6 Dec 2013
By Pamela S Thibodeaux - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
A pound of Cowboys, a cup of Christmas, a dash of inspiration mixed with equal parts of Love and Miracles....These talented authors have put together the perfect ingredients for a holiday romance complete with recipes for great desserts!

Each story is short enough to enjoy before bed or on a quick break, yet long enough to satisfy.

If you enjoy Western romance, this anthology is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful characters and heartwarming stories! 4 Dec 2013
By Kristine McCaffrey - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wishing For A Cowboy contains wonderful Old West short stories by eight different authors. Each centers around Christmas, offering tales of mail-order brides, starchy schoolmarms, rugged renegades and Texas Rangers.

In “A Christmas Miracle” by Phyliss Miranda, Mattie Jo must beg the town doctor, Grant, to come to her homestead and treat her sick, and possibly dying, baby sister. The fact that Mattie Jo is shunned by the townsfolk because of her outlaw father makes Grant’s help all the more shocking. Snowed in, an affection soon develops between them.

In “Outlaw’s Kiss” by Cheryl Pierson, Talia finds a wounded Jake on her doorstep in a blizzard. Five months prior, he’d ruined her reputation by publicly kissing her at an auction, a kiss she’s been finding hard to forget. Now, they both have a chance to reconcile their motives and their desires.

In “A Husband For Christmas” by Sarah J. McNeal, Jane and her son, survivors of the Titanic and still reeling from the trauma of losing a husband and a father, find solace with Teekonka, a Lakota who loves them both. But before they can be together, he must help them heal their wounds.

In “Peaches” by Kathleen Rice Adams, the tone lightens a bit when impatient rancher Whit must contend with new schoolmarm Ruth and her three rambunctious boys. When he ultimately helps her in the kitchen baking dozens of pies, you’ll smile and root for the happy ending.

In “A Gift For Rhoda” by Jacquie Rogers, Rhoda, a jilted mail-order bride, must confront a stranger at the homestead she tends, believing him to be her drunken betrothed. But Nate, who isn’t the groom, is just as confused as she since he never intended on saddling himself with a bride. But he wins the prize for the fastest proposal in history.

In “Her Christmas Wish” by Tracy Garrett, Kathryn and Will cross paths years later in a remote stagecoach station, rekindling a love that had left them heartbroken and confused. Both must reconcile the past before finding happiness again.

In “Covenant” by Tanya Hanson, Ella waits for Carsten, the husband who abandoned her three months ago. This story has a darker tone due the death of Carsten’s young daughter, but it’s this grief that gives the ending a poignancy and sweetness.

And finally, in “Charlie’s Pie” by Livia J. Washburn, Lauralee simply wants to bake her son his favorite pie on Christmas Eve. But when Burke arrives at her doorstep, wounded and hounded by a posse of men, she must trust her instincts. With Burke, they serve her well; when it comes to her pie, maybe not so much. This story also has a sad undertone, but Burke proves just the man to heal Lauralee’s deep grief.

Each story brought the west alive, with wonderful characters and genuinely heartwarming stories. As an added bonus, a recipe relevant to each tale is included at the end. I’ve got my eye on Rhoda’s Wedding Pie. Don’t miss this wonderful collection.

You'll come away with a feeling of widening your family circle after meeting and getting to know these wonderful characters.
