Cadence Greer’s plans for a happy-ever-after are quickly derailed when her fiancé runs off with his secretary a week before their wedding. Homeless, jobless and jilted, she escapes to Grass Valley, Oregon, where she finds herself employed as a housekeeper and cook to seven cowboys on a sprawling ranch.
Trey Thompson is a well-respected pillar of the community, running a successful ranch with his brother. All he wanted was someone to cook his meals and keep the house clean. When he hires Cadence Greer for the job, he gets more than he ever planned on, including a sassy little red-headed orphan.
Come spend Christmas in Grass Valley at the Triple T Ranch, where mistletoe hangs abundantly and holiday magic is in the air.
I enjoyed this story, especially since the Grass Valley area of Oregon is familiar to me.
Shanna Hatfield’s characters are well drawn and likeable. Cadence and Trey’s rocky road to romance was a fun ride, with their misunderstandings and Cadence’s struggles to adapt to country life. Aunt Viv was a hoot, and little Cass a heartbreaker.
The Cowboy’s Christmas Plan is book one of the Grass Valley Cowboys series, and I’d love to read the rest of the series. This book earns four stars.
