The Cowboy's Christmas Bride by Cora Seton
After traveling around the globe for over a year, Cole Linden is more than ready to return home to Montana, so when his fiancée, Sunshine, suddenly cuts their trip short and books them flights back to Chance Creek, Cole feels like the holidays have come early this year. He hopes she’ll love the present he bought her: a restaurant space downtown. If only he can transform it into the sleek, modern style she likes before Christmas, maybe she’ll finally agree to set a date for their wedding.
Sunshine can’t believe she’s pregnant, but she is, which means it’s high time to get back home. It also means she needs to re-think her career goals. She can’t run a world-class restaurant in tiny Chance Creek—especially not with a baby. So Cole will have to be the breadwinner of the family. Which means he needs a ranch. Luckily she’s found one. Three hundred acres of prime ranch land and a wonderful—if dilapidated—house. With Christmas looming, she’ll need to race to turn it into the comfortable family home they’ll need as soon as they get married.
But when a delayed flight results in the loss of their hotel room, Cole and Sunshine realize they’ll have to couch surf through the holidays. Staying with each of their friends in turn leads to a series of revelations that might undermine their relationship for good. Can Cole and Sunshine make it until Christmas?
Or will this be the holiday that ends it all?
After traveling the world for 3 years Sunshine and Cole return to Chance Creek. Cole has surprise for Sunshine while she has one or two of her own for him. However a flight delay causes them to lose their motel reservation which means they have to go from house to house staying with Cole’s friends. Along the way each lady learns Sunshine’s secret.
The guys help Cole work on his present while the women help Sunshine work on hers. However neither is sure if they are making the right decision. Staying with different friends helps Cole and Sunshine brings to light various uncertainties and challenges. Both Sunshine and Cole question what they are doing. However they soon realize just how much they want to be together and raise a family.
As always I loved this book! Cora Seton has such a way with words and I honestly didn’t realize how much I have missed the Chance Creek gang. This is the perfect book for any fan because not only do you get a great story you also get to catch up with everyone.
