A Colorado Christmas To Remember

On the Denver streets, officer Paula Lewis is as tough as she needs to be. But away from skyscrapers and suspects, Paula gives back to the community she loves. This holiday season she's moonlighting at the Christmas House, a turn-of-the-century mansion transformed into a festive wonderland to delight local children thanks to volunteers like Paula--and Zach Bennett.

Zach left his family's Colorado ranch to sign on as a carpenter at the Christmas House. Freewheeling Zach hopes to make this holiday the merriest yet--from coaxing Paula onto the bunny slopes to filling in as a last-minute Santa. And as she and Zach are drawn together to keep one young boy out of harm's way, Paula realizes that the best gifts are second chances, happy endings, and the kind of love that makes every day warm and bright. . .

Merry Christmas Cowboy (Saturday, September 14, 2013)
Reviewer: jbarr5

Merry Christmas Cowboy by Janet Dailey
Paula Lewis this holiday season is not only working as a cop but she's helping out at the Christmas House. There are many rooms with different themes and visitors come and pay an entrance fee and have safe fun with their friends and family.
Zach Bennett had left his family's ranch and is in town as a carpenter which the House can use. They do hit it off and are great company for one another.
The story also follows Brandon and he's a teen and all the mishaps he has. And elderly Edith who runs the whole show and what problems she has.
Love that different generations are in this book.
Medical problems and things are stolen are a few of the things that keep this story interesting along with love stories. Loved the setting, the house and the snow and instructions.
I received this book from The Kennsington Books in exchange for my honest review

Not Just A Romance! (Thursday, September 12, 2013)
Reviewer: Judy Burgi

This book isn’t your typical romance. I found there was mystery and suspense in the story line too. It wasn’t hard to figure out the culprits involved but I found it to be an enjoyable read regardless.

Paula Lewis is a Denver police officer who agrees to volunteer as a security officer at the Christmas House and soon learns she is enjoying herself immensely. She helps out wherever she is needed to help make this a delightful place to visit during the Holiday season for the public coming through to look at and enjoy the decor. Children especially enjoy taking a tour of this wonderful Christmas House.

Zach Bennett left his family’s ranch to volunteer to work as a carpenter, at the Christmas House, at the suggestion from his friend Jake. Turning the former Denver Mansion into a magical place finds Zach enjoying the work he is doing. What is even more enjoyable is Paula Lewis, very easy on the eyes.

Is love in the air for this couple or is it just a close friendship and nothing more? Being a police officer Paula doesn’t have time for a social life. Will that change?

To my knowledge this is the first book that I have read of Janet Dailey’s so I can’t compare this book to other books of hers. I do know that I enjoyed this story line.

Heads up for readers that are Christian fiction fans like me. There are a few mild cuss words and a few times the Lord’s name is used as a cuss word. All in all, I think readers will enjoy this story.
