Feature book: Her Mistletoe Cowboy
Her Mistletoe Cowboy by Alissa Callen
When Ivy Bishop wanders into Rhett Dixon’s life, she’s just left her fiancé and is worn out from the corporate world. She’s come to stay in the ranch house on the property where Rhett has his log cabin. He manages to rescue her and her dog, Milly, by getting her into the house but with no electricity, she ends up spending the night at his cabin instead. Sparks soon begin to fly as they settle in for the night but neither is interested in a relationship. Right?
Seems fate has other ideas as they continue to be brought together and the attraction deepens. As Christmas approaches, Ivy is also introduced to Rhett’s family and to the local area. Ivy’s baking skills are put to good use as she thanks Rhett for his help with settling in for the duration and they grow closer. As Rhett helps out she gains insight into his family and becomes a support for him as he tries to negotiate some tricky family relationships. As everyone prepares to celebrate the Christmas period, can Ivy and Rhett overcome their emotional obstacles and allow themselves to celebrate with each other? Will Ivy decide to stay in small-town Marietta or will she want to return to her high-powered career in Atlanta when her sabbatical comes to an end? Can Rhett let the past go and move forward being true to himself and looking for what he truly wants?
Her Mistletoe Cowboy is a sweet Christmas-themed novella with a plucky heroine, a cute hero and two furry sidekicks who know how to keep them on their toes. While Christmas may still be a few months away, this story could be just the way to get you ready for Christmas again. Or, of course, you can always celebrate some Christmas in July. This would be a perfect read when you’re curled up by the fire with a hot drink, or when you cuddle up under the doona in bed.
