A story at Christmas time with horses and cowboys with a little suspense is a winner for me. This is a sweet and steamy read. I can’t wait to read book number two, “Trace’s Trouble”, of the “Last Chance” series.
“Christmas with Angel” by Lexi Post is book number one in the “Last Chance” series. This is cowboy firefighter, Cole Hatcher and Lacey Winters’ story.
Lacey and Cole are engaged to be married and are in the process of building their new home. They are living with Cole’s grandparents and other family members. It is hard for them to find private and quiet times. Cole wants to go to his mother’s Christmas dinner. Lacey does not. She wants them to stay home and enjoy some private and quiet time. Lacey is also having a hard time forgiving Cole’s mother for keeping them apart for eight years.
Things do not go according to either Lacey or Cole’s plans. There is a little suspense and a few surprises on their Christmas day. Through Lacey and Cole’s unexpected Christmas day they learn the importance of forgiveness, second chances, and the things that really most important.
I enjoyed the horse, Angel, in the story. Cole has started a horse rescue place and Angel is one of their rescue horses. The story reflects on the abuse that some horses experience. It is really sad the abuse some animals and people may experience in life.
FYI, includes mature content.
