A Cold Creek Noel: My Review

About the Book:
Caidy Bowman had been the apple of her family's eye-until a devastating tragedy forced her to hide from the world. She was used to devoting her time to the animals on her family's ranch. Then widower Ben Caldwell and his two adorable children arrived in Pine Gulch, and suddenly, Caidy wanted more than a life in the shadows....  

As the town's new vet, Ben needed a place to stay for the holidays-and for his family to heal from their own loss. He absolutely wasn't looking for love again! But Caidy Bowman's sparkling green eyes and sweet smile touched Ben's broken heart, giving him hope for a new future. Their future-if he could convince the beautiful cowgirl that Christmas was a time for new beginnings....

My Comments:
This is a pretty basic romance novel, set at Christmas time.  It is set, as noted in the title, in Cold Creek, where RaeAnne Thayne has set several other books.  As noted above, Caidy has been mourning her parents' deaths and has basically put her life on hold since they died.  Ben recently lost his wife and has moved to Cold Creek to get away from the in-laws who blamed him for his wife's death and who were trying to turn his kids away from him.  Neither of them is looking for someone, both feel an instant attraction...  There are no major subplots to this book, what you see is what you get.  While he dreams of physical intimacy with her, we are never told that they are physically intimate.  Grade:  B-(about the best I give this kind of book).
