It's a Christmas miracle in Montana with New York Times bestselling author Diana Palmer's beloved story, THE HUMBUG MAN.
Montana rancher Tate Hollister was the grouchiest man that widowed Maggie Jeffries had ever met. It's Christmastime, and Maggie was determined not to let her Scrooge-like neighbor ruin her young son's holiday. Nearly ten years old, Blake adored Tate for some reason Maggie couldn't fathom.
But there's more to Tate than his brusque manner. As the holiday season progressed, Maggie discovered that Tate—with his smoldering black eyes and roguish good looks—wasn't completely immune to the Christmas spirit. In fact, his loving embrace might just be the gift of a lifetime…
I have been reading Diana Palmer books both older titles and newer titles for several years. Perhaps 25 or more to this point.
I catch myself wondering if the re-releases shouldn't be updated. And the shorter barebones stories have more substance, more depth infused into them.
Humbug Man is a sweet but disappointingly short story. It has no suspense. No pull of emotion. No problem to over come.
I like Diana Palmer's sweet morality based stories. But this one is like mushy oatmeal.
