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.

Skip it Skip it Skip it.

When it’s free, it’s usually garbage. This one easily falls into that category. From the narrator who was the worst, to the story that was for, maybe a teenager, don’t waste your time. Or, it you get it because it’s free, skip to the epilogue.. it’s all you need.

A-1 Characters and story

I loved this book! The characters were so well written they leapt off the page. The story line was absorbing, a little mystery a little love, a lot of great listening. I want more!
