Blog Tour: Review of A Tall, Dark Cowboy Christmas by Maisey Yates

Author: Maisey Yates
Publisher: Harlequin
Date of publication: October 2018

Grant Dodge didn’t expect to find a woman sleeping in an abandoned cabin on his family ranch. Or to find her so intriguing. Unlike every other woman in town, McKenna Tate doesn’t know Grant’s a widower. There’s no pity in the looks she gives him. McKenna wants him, and Grant has forgotten what it’s like to feel like a man. A no-strings fling for Christmas might be the kind of holiday cheer Grant needs…

With only a suitcase to her name, McKenna came to Gold Valley to confront her birth father. She didn’t plan to work at the Dodge ranch or fall for the gorgeous cowboy who keeps his heart roped off. But there’s no denying the way their broken pieces fit together. Hope brought her to Gold Valley—but will it be the gift that could finally heal Grant, and McKenna’s own wounded heart?

A Tall, Dark Cowboy Christmas is the fourth book in the Gold Valley series.  This is Grant's story.  He is famous because he married his dying wife at a young age and stuck with her until her death.  The media made a sensation about it.  Now all he gets in sympathy when people in town look at him.  He just wants to be left alone.  McKenna is looking for a family and home.  She never bargained for getting a job a the ranch and finding love along the way.

I definitely liked this one more that the third book.  I felt like it was less repetitive and had less introspection.  Grant and McKenna both came with major baggage.  I enjoyed McKenna's no BS attitude and willingness to call out Grant on his BS.  I was rooting for them to realize they were perfect for each other.  I also loved the ending for McKenna regarding her real family.  She deserved it.  I definitely recommend this one.  It held up well as a stand alone.  I am really looking forward to Bea's story next!

I'm still reading spooky books for Halloween, but I'm happy to see it wouldn't be too early to start reading for some Christmas cheer!
