Changing his heart…

Would be a Christmas miracle!

Cash Montgomery creates Western-themed weddings and knows all about happily-ever-after. In theory. He’s been hurt too many times to think that he could ever be a marrying man. His business partner Phoebe Kellerman doesn’t agree with him—on anything! At Christmas, Cash is visited by three of his past girlfriends…and he begins to see the error of his ways. Will it be before he loses Phoebe, the woman he’s falling for?

**My thoughts**
I fell in love with Cathy McDavid's books during her Sweetheart Ranch series. So I was excited to see that she was starting on a new series with a new romantic destination! And of course, it has to kick off with the holidays.

This one is loosely based on A Christmas Carol, as the character of Cash is hesitant to act on his feelings toward his friend and business partner Phoebe. He has been burned many times in the past in love, and while not totally against it, it's definitely not at the top of his list to pursue right now. So he is visited by three ghosts, in the form of each of his ex-fiancees getting married right at his venue. I think it is a clever storyline!

Phoebe also has some heart scars from her own failed engagement some years ago. Plus she has a bit of family drama going on. But she has had a thing for Cash since they were in high school. And there's no denying the attraction between the two of them. But they both have a lot to work through.

They're fun together as they are complete opposites. But opposites attract, right? And their opposite natures actually make them work well together, a real yin and yang. 

This book gave me that warm and fuzzy feeling right out of the gate and helped to keep me warm even as the early snow was blustering outside my window. I'm now completely in the holiday romance mood and want more! And I am very much looking forward to future installments in this sweet romantic series.

Thank you to Prism Book Tours and the author for providing me with a requested review copy. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
