REVIEW: Home for a Cowboy Christmas by Donna Grant

Posted December 24th, 2023 by in Blog, Contemporary Romance, Holiday Titles, Review / 8 comments


Home for a Cowboy Christmas by Donna Grant is an exciting romantic suspense story.

Emmy Garrett was seconds away from death when Deputy US Marshal Dalton Silva entered her hotel room and took care of the assassin holding a gun to her head. Emmy was in WITSEC (witness protection) and supposedly being protected by US Marshals. The two US Marshals who were supposed to be guarding her hotel room were nowhere to be found when Dalton arrived there just in time to save Emmy’s life. Looked like to Dalton that there was a leak in his department. This was the third time Emmy had to be moved. Dalton knew he was on his own. His best bet was to take Emmy to his friend’s ranch in Montana. Emmy was very frightened but trusted Dalton and knew as soon as she met Dwight Reynolds that she could trust him too.

Dwight Reynolds is former military, FBI and Homeland Security. Even though he left all that behind to take over running the family ranch his protective instincts still remained strong. He owed Dalton a favor and was more than happy to pay him back by taking in Emmy and protecting her. Dwight didn’t even need to be told why Emmy needed protection. When Emmy did tell Dwight her story Dwight became even more protective. He knew he had to be on top of his game to protect the woman he was falling in love with.

This storyline held my attention throughout as I realized the mob boss who wanted to eliminate Emmy, the witness who could send him to prison, would do everything he could to take her out of the picture so she couldn’t testify against him. I really liked Emmy and Dwight. They are both believable characters and very likable. I also liked how this author included Dwight’s Australian Cattle dog, Sam in the story as the emotional support dog for Emmy. I like Ms. Grant’s voice and I really enjoyed this story.
