My Thoughts On This Book

Shelby Arroyo is only doing her job of assessing mineral rights in a Gold County mine, but someone isn’t happy with Shelby. Will they go as far as murder to stop her? And after pulling the beautiful girl from a ravine, rancher Barrett Thorn stays by her side as trouble keep coming her way. But the attraction forming between them just can’t be because Shelby family is responsible for th death if Barrett’s wife.

Cowboy Christmas Guardian is full of tension coming from many directions. There is a strong attraction between Barrett and Shelby, Barrett hates Shelby’s uncle and cousin, Barrett’s brothers are not happy with the time Barret and Shelby are spending together, and Shelby is in the middle of it all. And it doesn’t help that  Barrett’s mom welcomes Shelby into their home and family.

I really felt bad for Shelby, and feared for her life with everything going on to stop her from accessing the mine. And I loved the way Barrett came to her rescue every time something happened. Author Dana Mentink does a great job weaving all of the hurts, tension, frustrations and evil doings together and finishing a story that shows forgiveness, grace, love and acceptance. And I don’t want to elaborate on the story more because it would give away too much! I loved this story and I highly recommend it for a few hours of entertainment. And I love ‘Love Inspired’ books, because even though they are shorter stories, they are a wonderful read. Just as Cowboy Christmas Guardian. And I appreciate the was Ms Mentink weaves the Christian life into her characters! Go grab a copy of this book! You will not be disappointed!

Guest Post from Dana Mentink

Howdy, readers! I am thrilled to be bringing you this four book Gold Country Cowboys series that takes place in an area near and dear to my heart! My family and I have enjoyed many adventures in this amazing area, from exploring gold mines, to climbing through caverns, and soaking in the incredible history. As a matter of fact, we recently enjoyed a train trip on the historic V and T Railroad which took us past abandoned mines and even some active ones where people are engaged in modern day treasure hunting. California’s Gold Country is a fascinating place filled with secret treasures. I hope you will enjoy some wild adventures with four cowboy brothers who have some secrets of their own. God bless you all!

    My husband loves to watch shows like Gold Rush. I’ve always wondered what makes people want to risk it all for treasure!
