Publisher's Summary

Believe in second chances this Christmas.

Ellie Marsden couldn't wait to shake the dust of Branding Iron, Texas off her heels and chase after bright lights, big city, and a wealthy husband. Now she's come home, divorced, a little disillusioned, and a whole lot pregnant. Leave it to her one-time high school sweetheart, cattle rancher Jubal McFarland, to point out that citified Ellie is as out of place in small-town Texas as her teacup poodle. So why is there something about being back - and being with Jubal - that feels surprisingly right?

Jubal's eight-year-old daughter, Gracie, needs a mother, but he hasn't found the perfect woman. Or maybe the problem is that he did find her, and had his heart broken when she left town. Gracie's already falling hard for Ellie and that ball of fluff she calls a dog. And no matter how hard the rugged cowboy tries to resist, there's no denying the appeal of first love and sweet new beginnings - especially when there's a little Christmas magic in the air.

narrator hard to listen to

I couldn't even finish the story, the narrator had really strange inflection on things that made no sense. And her changing a voices was also very odd. Story sounds good but just couldn't finish it.

Underwhelming

I really wanted to like this book. The characters seemed very like-able and it was a clean hearted story. However, the plot needed more substance and was painfully predictable. It left something to be desired in terms of how it was written. It was written at the level of a high schooler at best.

A Little different

Just a Little Christmas was a really interesting story. Although the story line has some similarities to other Christmas love plots, Janet Dailey left enough mystery in it to keep it from being totally predictable. It was quite enjoyable.
