A Hard Candy Christmas by Hebby Roman

A Hard Candy ChristmasBeing a single mother in any era is difficult, but “back in the day” when the steam locomotive was the best way for long distance travel and ranchers and farmers were the backbone of every small town, a woman deserted by her husband was often at the mercy of family. Abigail and her young son were alone and totally dependent on her harsh and demanding father, running his boarding house to keep a roof over their heads. There is trouble brewing between the sheep ranchers and the railroad, as men fight to keep their livelihoods going, and compromise seems impossible. Caught in the middle, local sheriff and sheep rancher, Clint Graham rents a room at the boarding house and just might have what it takes to take the fear of men out of Abigail’s eyes and heart. Is it the way he is with her young son, the common ground they find they have? Just when Abigail dares to try again, her worst nightmare shows up, once again.

A Hard Candy Christmas by Hebby Roman is about leaving the ghosts of the past behind and opening one’s heart to new beginnings, a second chance at happiness through trust and respect. Ms. Roman brings the “olden days” to life, with a realistic standoff between the railroad and the ranchers, and two people who find each other just when they needed love most. A delightful read, heart-warming scenes and the emotional passions of the Holiday Season.

I received this copy for review as part of the Silver Belles & Stetsons anthology review request from Lyn Horner.
