Rocky Mountain Cowboy Christmas by Katie Ruggle

In the heart of the Rockies
One white Christmas can change everything.

When firefighter and single dad Steve Springfield moved his four kids to a Colorado Christmas tree ranch, he intended for it to be a safe haven. But he never expected danger to follow them to his childhood home...

Or that he would come face-to-face with the one girl he could never forget.

Folk artist Camille Brandt lives a quiet life. As the town's resident eccentric, she's used to being lonely—until Steve freaking Springfield changes everything. Brave and kind, he's always had a piece of her heart, and it doesn't take long before she's in danger of falling for him again. But as mysterious fires break out across the sleepy Colorado town, Steve and Camille will have to fight if they want their happy family to survive until Christmas...

Steven is a widower and he has several kids in tow. When he decides to move back to his home town, he moves back to his tree farm and his three brothers. The kids that he's raising are hilarious and curious, shy and intelligent. I loved that the kids played such a major role in this story. Steven's brothers were somewhat underdeveloped in the story for the large role they played. You were kept guessing about what was going to happen next, for sure, but I also felt slightly lost since they were not really the main characters.

Then you have Camille. She is the quirky resident artist. Despite being kind of a shut in, she does venture out every once in a while. She also has a hilarious, too nosy neighbor. When she sees that Steven is back in town, despite the town gossip and years of people saying that the other brothers were better looking, etc., she can't help but feel like a 12-year-old again.

Steven and Camille are a great couple. They don't have much in common, but their ability to dance around each other was definitely an art in this story. While at times, I wished they behaved less young adult and more adult romance, this was a sweet story and the kids were just icing on a really great story. I am excited to see what everyone gets up to next.

Katie Ruggle lives in an off-grid, solar- and wind-powered house in the Rocky Mountains. When she’s not writing, Katie rides horses, shoots guns, hikes, cross-country skis, kicks her generator in hopes that it will fix itself, and plots out new ways to get lost in the wilderness. She lives in Fairplay, Colorado.
