Cowboys for Christmas anthology by Liz Talley, Kim Law, Terri Osburn

Authors: Liz Talley, Kim Law, Terri Osburn
Publisher: Intermix
Date of publication: November 18,2014

Claire, Georgia, and Mary Catherine couldn't be more different, but they promised they would be there for one another no matter what. And when they all gather in Holly Hills, Texas, for Mary Catherine’s Christmas wedding, they’ll find they have one thing in common: hearts that are about to be branded—by unforgettable cowboys.

In “Love Me, Cowboy” by Terri Osburn, wallflower Claire would be more excited about the wedding if it didn't mean running into Mary Catherine’s brother—the bull rider she once had a scorching one-night stand with…

Ivy League volleyball coach Georgia never wanted to see Holly Hills—or another cowboy—again. But a sexy veterinarian is making her rethink her vow to never marry a Texas man in “Kiss Me, Cowboy” by Liz Talley.

Claire and Georgia both think that Mary Catherine is getting hitched to the wrong man, despite how perfect he is. And in “Marry Me, Cowboy” by Kim Law, a local rancher with a wild reputation gives Mary Catherine a glimpse of what might have been—and what could still be...

Autumn and I were talking about getting into the Christmas mood the other day.  She mentioned that she has been looking for some Christmas themed stories to help get her there.  Cowboys for Christmas probably wouldn't be her cup of tea as I'm the romance reader, but it was definitely my cup of tea.  While not really a "holiday" book, I still enjoyed it.  It happens to take place before Christmas, but the holiday didn't really play a huge part any of the stories.

The three stories focus on three friends who are in town for a wedding.  Claire, Georgia and Mary Catherine have been friends forever.  Of the three women, I liked Claire's story the best.  I liked the friends to lovers part of her and Tyler's story.  I though their ending was sweet.  I felt like George's story was the most rushed and would have liked hers to be a little longer.  It was a little too much insta-love for me. Finally Mary Catherine's story was a great one about second chances.  I was rooting for her to make the right decision.  One that would be for her happiness, not everyone else's.

The book has a lot of humor and the writing styles of the three authors meshed very well together. The only thing I didn't care for was the rehashing of certain scenes.  I know that each time you get a different perspective, but it got a little repetitive at times.  I do recommend this one.  Any book with three sexy cowboys makes for a great read!
