The Christmas Cowboy Hero (Hearts of Texas #1) by Donna Grant 


New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant returns to Texas, where a small-town legend just might find the greatest gift of all. . .

’Tis the season for ex-Navy SEAL Clayton East to come home for the holidays―even if the mood at home is anything but festive. His father is ill. The East Ranch is in financial trouble. And now it’s on Clayton, the prodigal son, to make sure his family doesn’t lose everything.

Headstrong Abby Harper is like a mother to her younger brothers, who she’s helped raise since she was a teenager. Keeping them in line is no small task while she’s also working toward her college degree. And now that one of her brothers has been arrested for stealing cattle at the East Ranch, Abby is at her wit’s end. But there is a silver lining: Clayton East. He believes in second chances, and is willing to give one to her brother this Christmas. Letting beautiful Abby―and the inescapable longing in his heart―off the hook, however, is a whole ’nother story. Could it be that the woman of this local hero’s dreams has been back at home all along?


4 out of 5 stars

This should totally be a Hallmark movie! So sweet and entertaining with just the right amount of drama and a touch of suspense. And hello swoony cowboy!!! Awesome read!

I went into this wanting a feel good, easy read, and that's exactly what I got. It was fun and flirty and there was a nice amount of heat too. Abby and Clayton were great characters. I thought they had good development coming together and I enjoyed learning their backstories. They're both wonderful, caring people and I love how they overcome their personal obstacles. I felt for them and there were lots of emotional moments as things were learned. I really enjoyed them getting to know one another as their feelings grew. These two definitely pulled at my heart strings.

I also really enjoyed the mystery and suspense element that was in play. It kept the story moving along nicely and I was excited to see where it all would go. It added a nice amount of action and drama that kept things exciting. I thought there was a fantastic cast of characters. Abby's brothers were great and I loved Clayton's parents. His mom was so wonderful. They all helped make it a full story. I thought the writing was great and enjoyed the descriptions. I really enjoyed the storyline and felt there was lots of depth. There was a really good pace and great details. I enjoyed the different POVs as well.

I had so much fun reading this and it definitely left me smiling and happy. From beginning to end I enjoyed Clayton and Abby, they're just both so sweet and caring. A feel good story for sure! This was my first Donna Grant book and I can’t wait to read more from this author.
