And something about the stubborn, beautiful Layla has him wanting more than forgiveness. Can a wandering cowboy turn a Christmas courtship into an everlasting love?
Cooper Creek: Home is where the heart is for this Oklahoma family
I love this Christmas story!! I haven’t read any of the Cooper Creek series, but this was a great read without the other ones. Gage Cooper is in town for the holidays, and runs into Layla Silver. Layla has been making it just fine without anyone’s help, so when Gage tries to help, she’s not too happy with him. And Gage didn’t have a good background with Layla anyway, because he hurt her too much when they were in high school. That was ok though, because Gage wasn’t planning to stay around town long enough for anything to happen anyway. He was off for the bull rides as soon as his injury healed enough to start riding again.
I really liked Gage and Layla because they were so attracted to each other, and neither wanted to admit it! And I was so glad that Gage started giving Layla’s brother some attention, because it kept him out of trouble. But then that caused Gage and Layla to cross paths too much.
Brenda Minton weaves together a special story that will stick with you for a long time after you finish reading. Gage and Layla wormed their way into my heart, and just wouldn’t leave. I really enjoyed their story, with all of the tensions and problems they faced. But it turns out to be a beautiful story, one I know you will love! Just as much as I did.
