Cowboy Boots for Christmas

Finished June 16
Cowboy Boots for Christmas (Cowboy Not Included) by Carolyn Brown

Sometimes it's nice to just read an escape romance, and this fit the bill. This is the first in a series for the prolific romance author. The cowboy in question is Finn O'Donnell, former military sniper, and new ranch owner in the small town of Burnt Boot, Texas. He has refused a couple of offers recently to return to service, and he thinks the vehicles coming up his drive are a third try. But he is mistaken. as Callie Brewster, the woman who he was partnered with steps out of one of the vehicles. Callie was his spotter, and he hasn't seen her in a couple of years, having lost touch when he left the service.
Callie retuned home following the death of her sister, to care for and adopt her six year old nephew Martin. Recently, Martin witnessed a crime, and until the trial the authorities think he should make himself hard to find.
Finn agrees to take them in, knowing the capabilities of his former partner, but soon the house becomes home to other strays, both animals and people.
A story of compassion, mutual crushes, trust, and community, this is a definite feel-good read.
