Review of "The Cowboy's Christmas Auction" by Lorraine Nelson

What's New to Review? - Wednesday

It's been a great Holiday season already. I have gotten the chance to read some amazing holiday stories this year, and I am so thankful for the opportunity that my fellow authors have given me to enjoy their wonderful reads for free and for honest reviews.

This marks the beginning of what I hope will become a weekly feature on my blog. Wednesday will be "What's New to Review?" day here at Pen-the-Dream and to kick it off, I want to introduce you to a great short read from a wonderful author.

"The Cowboy's Christmas Auction"

This sweet romance holiday read is a short story that lights a fire in your heart from the beginning and it burns slow and steady through the read.

Ms. Nelson is quite skilled in her sweet romances and this holiday's short is no difference. Deciding to focus more on true love and romance really puts your heart to soaring and I highly recommend it!

Having already written a number of other books that are set on ranches, Lorraine has perfected the setting. And right next door to this ranch? A beautiful acreage of Christmas Trees and new neighbor...

Though this story does take place during the holiday season, the holiday itself doesn't take over the book, and would be a great read for any time of the year. Other than the Christmas Tree selling and a mention of Christmas dinners, there is hardly a mention. This suites me just fine, knowing that these events could happen at any time of year just makes it that more heart warming.

My official review?  It's a "5 cups of love" read. This is a novella that I'm sure I will read again!


Can an organic grower and a cattle rancher find common ground?

When the acreage next door comes up for bid, Dustin Granger attends the auction hoping to obtain the property for his growing herd. Along with the creek running through the property, his cattle need more grazing land. What he doesn’t need or want is a city girl outbidding him to establish an organic farm.

Meredith McRae inherits a small fortune from a distant uncle and decides to invest in her future. The estate she’s come to bid on has everything she needs and no neighboring cowboy was going to thwart her…regardless how handsome.
