Christmas in Jubilee
By Sue Baker
The Free Lance-Star
“A COWBOY for Christmas,” the final book in Lori Wilde’s Jubilee, Texas, trilogy is a heartwarming holiday book that could easily stand alone.
Ms. Wilde is well-known for her ability to bring deep, heartfelt emotion to her home-spun tales of small-town romance. Her characters, women who deserve to live “happily ever after,” have a huge capacity to be loved.
Lissette Moncrief is having a hard time celebrating Christmas. She is dealing with the stress of the death of her soldier husband, the illness of her 2-year-old son and the discovery that she is just about penniless. When you think things could not get worse, she backs her vehicle into a truck that belongs to her husband’s half-brother, who is in town looking for her.
The story leads the reader to smiles and tears. Once the tears are gone, you are left with that warm and good feeling that love conquers all.
I shared this book with several friends who all agreed we were very glad Lori introduced us to the people and town of Jubilee, Texas.
