My review: This is a sweet, short story that I found in the Home For Christmas set which I purchased for the great price of $0.99 back in September. The problem I have with short stories is that sometimes the romance seems to happen ‘too’ soon, which was the case for this story. Please don’t misunderstand, this story is a well written romance. Rather, I wish it could have been filled out more because I felt that 36 hours was such a short time for Callie and her mother, Barb, to reconcile the pain of having a father/husband leave them for another woman, and for Callie to open her heart to receive Dustin’s love after feeling so abandoned. Still, if you need an uplifting quick read that will leave you with a smile, pick up this sweet read by Debra Ullrick.
P.S. to author: I want to know how you get skunks out of a bunk house!

Can the Christmas season bring two young hearts together?
Ranch owner Callie Gentry needs help. When a certain cowboy she’s always secretly loved comes to her rescue, she struggles to keep her feelings in check. While she’s happy he’s back, her heart isn’t. After all, how can she trust the cowboy who left her like her father did?
Dustin Lockwood thought he’d never see Callie Gentry again. Then his friend asks him to work for him over Christmas vacation at Callie’s cattle ranch, and Dustin jumps at the chance to see her again. How can he convince the woman who’s lost all faith in men that he will never leave her again?
