My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Just a Little Christmas by Janet Dailey is a clean, contemporary, second-chance, cowboy romance set in a small town. I loved the warmth and sense of family as much as the storyline. The main characters Elle and Jubal are likeable characters with plenty of depth due to their backstories and their past relationship with one another. The supporting cast of family, friends, pets, and antagonists push the plot along and enhance the story.



Ellie Marsden couldn't wait to shake the dust of Branding Iron, Texas, off her heels and chase after bright lights, big city, and a wealthy husband. Now she's come home, divorced, a little disillusioned, and a whole lot pregnant. Leave it to her one-time high school sweetheart, cattle rancher Jubal McFarland, to point out that citified Ellie is as out of place in small-town Texas as her teacup poodle. So why is there something about being back--and being with Jubal--that feels surprisingly right?

Jubal's eight-year-old daughter, Gracie, needs a mother, but he hasn't found the perfect woman. Or maybe the problem is that he did find her, and had his heart broken when she left town. Gracie's already falling hard for Ellie and that ball of fluff she calls a dog. And no matter how hard the rugged cowboy tries to resist, there's no denying the appeal of first love and sweet new beginnings--especially when there's a little Christmas magic in the air . . .
