Darn Good Cowboy Christmas was chosen for me as part of a reading challenge I think the biggest compliment I can give the book is it s not bad That being said, it s not especially great either It s a fast, light read, but forgettable Mostly, I found the book a little too easy The heroine wants a cowboy and house without wheels for Christmas and they both fall right into her lap She meets Raylen s sister, who doesn t really like her, but then when her best friend shows up and he falls for the sis [...]

Reviewed for bookchickcityDARN GOOD COWBOY CHRISTMAS contains two elements every woman should have in her books at least once a year cowboys and Christmas This was just my type of festive treat Set in small town, ranching Texas, it s the third book in Carolyn Brown s Spikes and Spurs series I ve read books two and three, but not the first and I personally didn t think that it mattered Brown portrays a fun and cosy community that is easy to sink into whether you ve met the characters before or no [...]
3,50 3,75Recommended with a grinThere is one thing I have come to connect with Brown s books, and that is that they always makes me smile I usually sit there with a grin on my face, because they are sweet and fun.This book is part of a series, but it can be read as a standalone You will feel at home at once The books are inviting and the town is a place I would like to visit, and the people there, I would love to have them as friends.In this one we have Liz, a former carnie, who wants to settle [...]
Originally posted at longandshortreviews.cA story with a cowboy always hits the target, but add a little Christmas flair and a saucy heroine and you have a winner I know when I open a book by Ms Brown, I m in for a great time with characters I ll never forget This book is hot, humorous and a great time I love a book where there s a little bit of misunderstanding and a lot of longing Ms Brown delivers.Saying Raylen is hot is an understatement He s smoking hot He s got Liz s best interests at hear [...]

Having read the first two novels in this series, I was delighted to dive into this third novel that was also a lovely Christmas story as well It also continued some of the stories in the two previous novels so the readers can continue to keep track of some of their favorite characters As a carnie who always dreamed of settling down, Liz Hanson only asked for two things on her Christmas list a house that wasn t on wheels and her very own cowboy This story highlights much of the carnival life that [...]
drey s thoughts If you ve read Carolyn Brown s cowboy romances, you ll know that they re completely addicting If you haven t, well, you ve been warned This latest Spikes and Spurs installment features a girl who s loved a boy since she met him forever and a day ago, and a boy who hasn t forgotten her in all those years You d think with this kind of a start, the story would be over and done lickety split.But if it was, you d miss out on the laugh out loud humor and the sexy banter Carolyn infuses [...]
Love Cowboys, the carny angle is different but new hereDescription Born and raised in a traveling carnival, all Liz Hanson ever wanted for Christmas was a home that didn t have wheels After she was old enough to date she added one item a sexy cowboy.She s about given up on Santa ever bringing either one when her father dies and leaves her an ugly house and twenty acres in Texas Then rancher Raylen O Donnell walks onto her propertyThoughts Too many holes in the story, the characters are not that [...]
Wow I love those O Donnell boys, and Raylen was certainly a hot one I loved the way that Liz settled in to her house so quickly, and began getting to know everyone She remembered Raylen from her two previous visits, and was really hoping he was still available Raylen hadn t forgotten her either I really enjoyed the way he helped her setting things up, and the way that she helped him too They both had some insecurity issues he was afraid she d leave and go back to the carnie way of life, and she [...]
I have read this book several times and it is one of my favorite Carolyn Brown books Liz has only ever known the travelling carnival life, but she has always wanted to put down roots in a real home She met Raylen at her uncle s farm on two vacations, the last being when she was 14, and has always had him in her thoughts Now her uncle is offering to give her his farm The first person she sees is Raylen He almost immediately marks his territory, but is nervous about her leaving This was just the s [...]
I have to admit that even though I gave it 4 stars it was not my favorite of books by Carolyn Brown.I did however, love the fact that Raylen was unable to forget Liz whom disappeared from his life when they were so young I m just a sap when it comes to the love at first site stuff, which is or less what this was.I myself could feel the challenge that Liz was faced with in leaving the only life that she has ever known to settle down.And loved that Raylen and her new friends came and help to set [...]
I really liked Raylen but found written to be a bit flat that I thought he could be I liked learning about the O Donnell siblings and catching up with some previous characters, but I guess I missed the town folk flair from the first two books.Also, to be a cowboy you apparently must have perfectly stacked legs on your jeans and if you die, you will be graveyard dead, every time Maybe it s because I have read the first three back to back but the redundancy is getting to me.
I like this author a lot and I really like the whole family and I like the other books in this series I even liked the side relationships but the main one in the novel just didn t suit me they never got really mad at each other enough to fight and she was so ready to please him that whenever they DID fight, it kinda just fizzled out it was good and there were some amazing scenes but i dont think I would read the whole thing again
Whew I normally don t read many cowboy type romance novels but I will read the ones by Carolyn Brown You can practically feel the heat between the protagonists leaping off the pages as you read I also love the hometown feel of this book I really liked Liz and feel that Raylen s character fell a little short though I usually like to read in the morning during my coffee but I was so immersed in the book that my coffee had grown cold and I had to get a fresh cup.
For me this was kind of silly, but for fans of the romance genre I think it would be decent caliber reading The book is very well written with a well constructed story and nicely formulated characters The book is a pleasant enough read that makes a nice escapist diversion for holiday reading or any time you re in the mood for a good cowboy fantasy romance I d recommend this for anyone who enjoys the romance genre.
Pretty darn good Cowboy romance At first, I wasn t sure if I liked how fast paced the story was moving but as I continued, I easily fell into the rythym and enjoyed the story Liz s character was one I haven t met in a cowboy romance yet, so that was refreshing and fun to read I enjoyed the family aspect that was threaded through the story line and I can t wait to see where it goes next
Overall it was a good book I liked both of the families and Raylen and Blaze were probably my two most favorite characters The emotion in the book was lacking some, mostly when it came to Raylen and Liz s fights They didn t feel like fights and Liz always ran well drove to his house and everythings okay It was lacking intenseness.
The language in some parts of the novel well, actually, throughout the novel is less modern than I m used to Being a daughter of the modern times of text speak, acronyms, and contractions, the verbiage of the peace was somewhat unweildy for a modern book.
Another hit This series is excellent, this book is an excellent third Liz and Raylen make a perfect couple It was a sweet romantic book I love the way Raylen showed Liz that he loved her
I really liked it I enjoyed a nice and growing relationship between Liz and Raylen They didn t have to fight other people to have a relationship I also really enjoyed that other couples had relationships going on in the back ground of the book.
