G.R.I.T.S.
Cowboy Christmas By Mary Connealy


BACK COVER:
Singer Annette Talbot used her voice to spread the gospel with a traveling missionary troupe. When the Latrells take over and want Annie to dress provocatively and give up singing her beloved hymns, Annie flees to Ranger Bluff, Wyoming, dreaming of reuniting with her father for Christmas. But trouble chases her—right off the edge of a cliff!

Elijah Walker’s heart turned as cold and barren as the high plains in December after his ex-fiancĂ©e betrayed him and caused his father’s death. But when he rescues Annie out of a freezing river, Walker’s instincts tell him he must help her.


With her hermit father retreating to the high country and the Latrells intent on kidnapping her to make money off her singing, Annie may have no way out.

Has Annie hidden the truth about wanted posters bearing her face too long for anyone to believe her now?

Can Elijah overcome the pain from the past and learn to love again?

Will there ever be peace in their hearts in time for Christmas?


A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS?
Another Great book by Mary Connealy!!! Not to mention it's revolving around Christmas time!
It all starts with Annette Talbot finding out she is working for the wrong kind of people...They aren't trying to save souls, they're trying to take all their money. But when she tries to get away from them, they frame her for a murder, that she didn't commit! So she's on the run, going from town to town, trying to get home to her father and their ranch.
Elijah Walker, A cowboy still trying to get over the betrayal of his ex-fiance, and how she tricked him, finds himself feeling protective of this slip of a girl he meets on the stage bound for his hometown. Little did he know, it was the little girl who used to live on the neighboring Ranch. All he has to figure out is, How to protect this girl, and his heart at the same time.
As these two find themselves on the same path more often than not, they have to learn to work together otherwise they both might turn up seriously hurt...or worse.
I loved how Mary wove in the Romance, And how even though Elijah had sworn off women, he still did the right thing in protecting Annette...even to the extent of having her live on his ranch with him and his mother. But he's not a basket of roses...this man has a temper, and is on a no speaking terms with God, Blaming himself for the death of his father.
Annette's Character is one that you automatically love, she's a sweet christian girl, who was shipped off to a boarding school soon after her mother died, all because her dad didn't know how to cope. But that didn't dampen her spirits, she started using her talents to serve God. She's also, a stubborn woman who likes to be independent, and doesn't (think she) needs a man to help her out.
