Event planner Eve Canaday and her secret crush, Dr. Ben Tyler, are unexpectedly drafted to help a little girl fulfill her late mother’s wish—a magical Christmas to create some happy memories. Eve sees this opportunity as a sign; Ben, as a glitch in his plan to leave Marietta behind for good.
As the trio checks off the to-do list of Christmas fun, Ben’s ‘bah-humbug’ opinion of the holiday fades, along with ideas about keeping his distance from Eve. Getting involved is the last thing he wants to do but, alas, there’s no accounting for cosmic interference.
With the season of miracles upon this jewel of a town, will Eve find it’s possible that Christmas wishes aren’t only for little girls?
The Canadays of Montana series
Book 1: A Cowboy to Remember
Book 2: Choose Me, Cowboy
Book 3: The Cowgirl’s Christmas Proposal
This is a wonderful holiday read. Eve Canaday can't believe Ben Tyler is leaving Marietta right before the holidays. She's been crushing on him forever and now he's leaving. Well that had been the plan until there is a little mishap with her car and a reindeer. Now Ben is stuck in Marietta for the holidays and he's been roped into helping a young girl great some magical Christmas memories along with Eve. So much for getting out of here without letting his heart fall for Eve!!
Definitely a recommended read.
Christmas Wish for Love
The Cowgirl’s Christmas Wish by Barbara Ankrum is her third Canady book. This is Eve and Ben Tyler’s story. Eve is the party planner who for the past year has been friends with Ben. Ben grew up in Marietta, followed his dad’s footsteps to become a doctor, and is now an orthopedic surgeon at the hospital. Ben does not have good memories of Christmas as his parents jet set around the world, without him as he grew up.
Ben is restless, not understanding how to fill the emptiness within. He decides to leave Marietta and join a medical group working in Haiti. Or at least spend his Christmas joining the group to see if it is what he wants. However fate intervenes on his way to the airport. As Eve is driving him she runs off the road and into a tree to avoid hitting an elf. Only it’s not an elk. It’s a reindeer.
Upon returning to Marietta Hospital, Ben and Eve find their friend Malcolm there after falling off a ladder while hanging Christmas lights. It seems that before his wife died last year she left messages around town for Malcolm and daughter Lily reminding them the importance of celebrating Christmas. With Malcolm laid up in the hospital Ben and Eve take over caring for Lily and celebrating Christmas. As Ben and Eve spend time together Ben recognizes how important Eve is in life and realizes her love for him.
These letters left for Malcolm not only remind him of the importance of celebrating Christmas but also the value of living and loving. Reading these letters also remind Ben of those significant facts. Ben needs to decide whether or not to take a chance on Eve and love or go to Haiti as he had planned.
This was a sweet, fun and entertaining story with very likeable and authentic characters that you want to cheer on, hoping for that happy ending. The characters were well written with complex characteristics. The story line was riveting and kept my attention to the very end. The story line was riveting and kept my attention to the very end. I genuinely enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down, reading it in one day. I highly recommend this book to other readers.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Greener Pastures, NOT!
Ben doesn't really know what he wants and figures chasing green pastures will make him happier, but he isn't so confident in his choices that he does't lets everyone know.... Eve has been longing for Ben it seems since she was introduced to him...... Fate seems to zap the action into place, with the help of a reindeer, some angel feathers and a little girl...
Sometimes we need that little reality, mysterious happenings to move us in the right direction.
Received an ARC for an honest and fair review.
