It will take a miracle bigger than the state of Texas for these two feuding families to survive the holidays!

Opposites might attract…
The Brennans and the Gallaghers put aside their one-hundred-year feud every Tuesday for their weekly poker game. This week, the stakes are sky-high. Goaded to recklessness, Declan Brennan bets one thousand dollars that he can woo the next woman to walk into the saloon. A minute later, fiery-haired Betsy Gallagher pushes through the doors. If Declan can tame this wild Gallagher, he’ll have earned every penny.

If they don’t kill each other first…
Betsy can outshoot anybody in Burnt Boot and loves ranching more than anything-until she falls for Declan. He’s fallen for her too. But when she discovers what sparked their courtship, Declan will need a Christmas miracle to save his hide-and his heart.

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.

A Cowboy Christmas Miracle (Burnt Boot, Texas) is a masterpiece! I love this series! The characters just come alive on the page. Decaln is a Brennan and Betsy is a Gallagher, the two should never be friends or even fall in love with one another. The have been feuding between the families for generations. The families are constantly sabotaging something. One is called the pig war, the shit war, and can you guess what this will be called? Well Declan and Betsy’s brother make a bet at their poker game that the next woman to walk in the bars door, that Declan couldn’t make that woman fall in love and in bed with Declan. Guess who walks in the door? Yep, you guessed right, Betsy! Now, there is one hitch to this bet. Declan has loved Betsy from afar, because a Brennan would date or marry a Gallagher. In true Carolyn Brown fashion, you have humor throughout the book. I recommend this book and series to everyone! I give A COWBOY CHRISTMAS MIRACLE 5/5 STARS.
