Christmas at Copper Mountain by Jane Porter


Christmas At Copper Mountain (A Copper Mountain Christmas)

Synopsis:

Since the loss of her family in a plane crash, Harley Diekerhoff has led a quiet life and keeps to herself. Taking the temporary job at the Copper Mountain Ranch as widower Brock Sheenan’s housekeeper seems perfect for her. But her calm cocoon is invaded with the arrival of Brock’s pre-teen twins, Mack and Molly who’ve never experienced a proper Christmas and before she knows it, Harley’s determined to make their holiday perfect. 


Annoyed at first by Harley’s interference, Brock is secretly pleased she’s changed Mack and Molly’s world. It doesn’t hurt that he finds Harley incredibly attractive, fierce, smart and passionate. It’s also an added bonus that she’s not afraid to challenge him and get his blood heated! But when sparks fly and the attractions sizzles between them, Harley’s not so sure she can handle something permanent with this dark, taciturn cowboy who doesn’t know how to let her in. But Brock is determined to hold on to her and praying for a Christmas miracle…

Review:

Christmas At Copper Mountain was one of my favorite Christmas stories I have read. What a wonderful book. I really like old romances (let's say pre-1950's) where everything is old fashioned and not at all like I would want it now, but I just love it. I wasn't expecting this to be an old-timey romance, and honestly I am not sure if that is indeed what the author intended, but I loved it. It was simple and sweet and just had a nice old-fashion feel to it without trying. The way everyone spoke and interacted just reminded me of my old romances I love so much. It is one of those stories where you just feel good when you finish it. There is not a lot that happens, but I just cannot help but love it.

Harley was running away from her heartache at the loss of her family. She tires to hide herself away in Montana working on Brock's ranch. She doesn't know that he has children and when they show up that is almost too much for her. She just doesn't want to deal with the pain.

Brock also has heartache of his own. He lost his wife shortly after the birth of his kids, and he has never looked for anyone else. In comes Harley and he finds himself attracted to her even though he doesn't want to be.

Brock and Harley did not have a lot of crazy sex scenes in the book, really they didn't even speak to each other that much, but they had chemistry. You still wanted them to get together and figure out how to be happy again. They were just sweet, and simple, and no big drama, just them figuring things out. It was really a great Christmas read and I will have to read more by this author.

Rating: 4.5/5
