Release day: A Texas Kind of Christmas

29 October 2019

Today is the official release of A Texas Kind of Christmas by Jodi Thomas, Celia Bonaduce and Rachael Miles (ebook and paperback, Kensington). Here’s the blurb:

It’s Christmas Eve, 1859, and everyone who’s anyone is headed to the glorious St. Nicholas Hotel for the most talked about ball of the season. It’s the kind of Texas night where anything can happen—even love . . .


New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Jodi Thomas

To escape her stepmother’s plot to marry her off, Texas heiress Jacqueline Hartman spends Christmas Eve sharing a hideout with an accused bank robber. After a night in Nathanial Ward’s arms, Jacqueline is certain she has met her match after all. But will his heartfelt promise of love lead to his demise at the hands of the law?

Also contains BIRDIE’S FLIGHT by Celia Bonaduce and SPIRIT OF TEXAS by Rachael Miles.

Jodi dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

Sometimes a picture from the past can inspire a story. A tintype of a Dallas hotel during the early years was worth that thousand words the moment I saw it. Or in my case about a twenty-thousand word story. In one night two couples fall in love in an era where there is little time to think of forever. Step into the past with me in A Texas Kind of Christmas where the wild west collides with a lavish Victorian party. Where people see each other in shadows and find honesty and dreams blend with longing.

You can find out more about this book at Jodi’s website or buy it from Amazon.

    I highly Recommend this book. I loved each and every story. Some if the FINEST western stories I’ve ever read.
    My review:
    Jodi Thomas is a master at penning historical westerns,
    the words simply melt off the pages right into your heart.
    Ms. Thomas has the most unique way of telling a story and weaving romance through her readers very soul.

    Ms. Jacqueline must select a man to marry or her inheritance will be forfeited. Her evil stepmom, Margaret, has had all she can take of Jacqueline’s presence on The Double H.
    Her dad has sweetened the pot for any man who will wed his daughter, a dowry of land and cattle to be given upon the day of the nuptials.
    As her dad is aging, Jacqueline knows Margaret wants to have full control of the ranch, however her dad put one stipulation in the dowry that no one knows, but Jacqueline.

    This was one of Ms. Thomas’s best stories I’ve ever read. If you’re a fan of her Ransom Canyon Series, you will love this story, same charm, but set in 1859 Dallas, Texas.
    Absolutely phenomenal characterization with Jodi Thomas’s inquisitive charm, all her fan’s have come to love.

    Birdie’s Flight by Celia Bonaduce was an exceptionally well written story.
    Fun, adventurous, with secrecy and romance mixed into the plot.
    Birdie is running, no money, and at the end of the trail. She only has one ace in the hole, her craft as a seamstress.
    Can she find peace and stay one step ahead of the gentleman trailing her?
    This story truly went well with the previous story by Jodi Thomas, both set in 1859 and in the same St. Nicholas Hotel in Dallas.

    Racheal Miles Spirit Of TEXAS was well written and a fun fun story. I loved the history she weaves into this story. She created a wonderful banter between her characters.
    She was perfect at giving us readers a twist that perfected Eugenia & Asher’s romance.

    This book was a great Ode To Dallas, Texas and Mrs. Sarah Cockrell!

    I received this book from netgalley in exchange for an honest review!
