Ok, this is a post for my Christmas Reading Challenge...and Yes I have done this book before, but I was looking at that review, and I thought I could give you some more information about it.
When four retired Texas Rangers try their hands at matchmaking, their efforts cause more fires that they can put out.
Peony Potter, a pretty girl with a mysterious past, has swept into town with a heap of trouble following close on her heels. When she comes head to head with the Local Sheriff and his suspicions, their relationship seems forever splintered before it's even begun.
Lacey Mather has come to Cut Corners to help out at Millie's Diner until her great-aunt's broken arm mends. While she's in town, Lacey's delicious cooking is warming many hearts and stomachs-especially those of a iron-willed blacksmith.
As Christmas draws near, clandestine meetings are held and plans are afoot to foil plots to leave town. Will the town of Cut Corners learn that no matter what plans they hold, God is the grandest planner of them all?
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS?
Not the Marrying Type:
When Peony decides that she is tired of her mother's life, and wants something new, where people don't know who she was, she decides to hop on a train and head anywhere...but when her traveling companion dies, things change. She finds herself in Cut Corners, Texas, finally living her dream of opening her own Dress Shop. But little did she know that her trip to Cut Corners, would include the local Sheriff.
Rafe wants out of this little town where nothing ever happens, he wants to do something important. As he's trying to figure out how to convince his dad to let him join the Rangers like he did...A slip of a girl shows up in town and starts making his job more interesting. And when he tries to teach his father a lesson, he ends up learning one of his own.
Here Cooks the Bride:
By Cathy Marie Hake
Jeff is the Blacksmith in town, and he would rather eat his own cooking than Aunt Millie's, and he's not sure the Lacey is any better of a cook...but when she invites him over for dinner he finds himself saying he'll be there. But the second the food hits his mouth, he's in Love...but he doesn't realize it yet! But once he finds out...can he convince the prettiest cook in Cut Corners?
A Great Holiday Read....I love reading this over and over again!
