A Cowboy for Christmas (Rocky Mountain Riders #6) by Sara Richardson

Come home to Topaz Falls, Colorado, where the best way to spend Christmas is in the arms of a cowboy!

When the beloved Farm Café in Topaz Falls burns to the ground, widow Darla Michaels comes up with the perfect plan to help her friends rebuild -- a Cowboy Christmas Festival complete with a sexy bachelor auction and a benefit rodeo. But to pull it off, she has to pretend to be engaged to Ty Forrester, the irresistible bull rider who keeps testing her keep-things-casual policy.

A fake fiancée wasn't on Ty's Christmas list this year, but it's the only way to get his family to visit over the holidays so his NFL-star brother can draw more tourists to the festival. The engagement wouldn't be such a problem if Ty wasn't starting to have real feelings for Darla. Knowing he can't go on pretending, Ty prepares to tell his family the truth--but then he and Darla discover a precious little Christmas surprise that just might help them embrace a whole new life together.

4 out of 5 stars

What a sweet, wonderful, heartfelt story! This is one of those stories that fills you up with goodness and makes you smile because of the genuinely nice characters. A heartwarming read for sure!

I really liked both Darla and Ty, learning about their relationship and watching their attraction grow. They had great chemistry, I felt for both of them as I learned about their pasts and was rooting for them to get together. Ty was so sweet and he had this strong, sexy cowboy vibe happening I really liked. I liked Darla and felt for her and how she fought to move on from past hurts.

There are a lot of fun things happening with a mix of different tropes. There’s a small-town romance, friends to lovers, fake fiancé, and a certain surprise happening. From the synopsis, I deduced just what that surprise aspect was and thought it was a sweet addition. I really liked the fake fiancé element happening and watching their feelings grow and as they deal with issues from their past.

The writing was really good with nice details. The story jumps right in, laying everything out so the reader could get to the good stuff. I enjoyed the dual POVs and the build to the story. I felt this was a pretty easy read for the most part. Pretty light in the drama department, with a lot of emotion happening, as well as some really awesome entertaining moments. This is a low heat kind of book but with everything else happening and all the feelings building, I didn't really miss it.

The takeaway for me is that it was just downright entertaining and sweet, it made me happy to read as people dealt with their issues and opened their hearts and healed. If you need a feel-good story that will warm your heart and leave you smiling, this is it!
