Spotlight & Giveaway: Come Home for Christmas, Cowboy by Megan Crane

Posted December 3rd, 2014 by in Blog, Spotlight / 42 comments

Today it is my pleasure to Welcome USA Today bestselling author Megan Crane to HJ! 

Hi Megan and welcome to HJ! We’re so excited to chat with you about your new release, Come Home for Christmas, Cowboy!

This Christmas season, Christina Grey Cooper has finally accepted that her marriage to her college sweetheart Dare is over.

COME HOME FOR CHRISTMAS, COWBOYSo she packs up her things, leaves a note, and heads back home for Marietta, Montana in the hope that a Christmas with her family will help piece her head—if not her heart—back together.

Dare isn’t about to let the love of his life go, and who cares if that’s what he thought he wanted? He’ll do what it takes to win Christina back—even if that means suffering through Christmas with his in-laws, pretending to still be happily married for the sake of family harmony, and trying not to get caught up in all that holiday nonsense he’s never believed in…

But Christmas is magical, especially in Montana.

And if Dare has any hope of convincing Christina to give him one more chance, it’s going to be here…

Please share a few Fun facts about this book…

This was actually the first thing I ever wrote for Tule, though it’s coming out fourth. It was the novella I’d started writing when the founding authors gathered in Montana—but I decided to put it on hold because we decided to start with the first Copper Mountain Rodeo series.

I have family in the Bitterroot Valley in Western Montana, which is how I got the idea for Dare to be a scientist with a focus on viruses. Rocky Mountain Labs is a real place!

My parents still live in the house where I grew up, in the town they’ve been in for almost 40 years. One of my favorite things to do when I’m home for Christmas is to drive around town delivering her gifts to her friends and immersing myself in all the old stories that make up life there. Who moved away. Who moved back. Whose kids are grown and what they’re doing with their lives. Who has suffered and who has overcome, and everything in between. It’s like a living, breathing Christmas card and that’s why I had Christina and her mother do it in this story!

Do you have a special scene from COME HOME FOR CHRISTMAS, COWBOY to share with us?

This is from COME HOME FOR CHRISTMAS, COWBOY, featuring Christina Cooper who has decided to leave her husband, her husband Dare who isn’t on board with that, and her sister Luce, whose own marriage has broken up and thinks that’s more than enough for their family to deal with over the holidays…

“Well,” Christina said now. “Dare and I can’t *pretend* to be happily married, Luce.”
“Why not?” Luce pounced on that. “Just until January. Who will it hurt? All you have to do is make it through the next few days. A week at most.”
“What? No. Absolutely—”
“Sure.” Dare sounded darkly amused and something else Christina didn’t particularly want to identify. Certainly not right there in front of her sister. “We can do that.”

    My birthday is Dec. 19th and my parents & I would go and pick out our Christmas & then decorate that night. I loved that tradition it made me feel special. Now when we can get a tree my husband and the rest of the family do the small as when I was small.

    All of them. From decorating outside with Christmas lights, to decorating the inside of the house with my mom, to decorating the Christmas tree with my mom, dad, brother, brother’s girlfriend and my daughter, to going to my Grandma’s house to decorate Christmas cookies. Everything about Christmas I love!!

    Watching Hallmark Christmas movies while wearing fuzzy socks and drinking hot chocolate with loved ones. It’s so wonderful, I love this time of year!

    The family get together Christmas Eve for the big celebration so that Christmas day can be more laid back with just immediate family.

    My favorite tradition when my kids were young was driving around looking at all the lights & decorations. It was also having all 4 kids light their own menorah each night during Hanukkah. That way no fighting over who’s turn it was. Now it’s our Hanukkah party where my husband always makes the potato latkes and I make my noodle kugel. After dinner we exchange gifts.
