[Kame's Review]: "A Last Chance Christmas"

A Last Chance Christmas by Vicki Lewis Thompson
Publisher: Harlequin (November 18, 2014)
Genre: Contemporary Romance 

A Christmas kiss from a cowboy… 

Ben Radcliffe reckons it'll be a cold day in hell before he considers a serious relationship or family of his own—with good reason. When he delivers a "secret" present to the Last Chance Ranch, however, Ben catches a glimpse of what family could be. And suddenly this lone cowboy finds himself under the mistletoe…planting one heck of a kiss on a stunning woman! 

Genealogist and academic Molly Gallagher is all about family. And even if Ben's secrets make him as skittish as a wild mustang, there's nothing Molly loves more than an enigma. Especially a ridiculously sexy one! But the magic of Christmas—and the Last Chance Ranch—might not be enough to wrangle a cowboy who can't trust himself…

Kame's Review:

Ben comes to the Last Chance ranch to deliver a custom made birthday present the family commissioned him to make for beloved Sarah. He is asked to pose as a horse buyer to not cause suspicion. Molly is a cousin interested in documenting the family history. They promise each other a few nights but not forever.

I really love this series. We get to see many of our favorite family members and check in with them. All the immediate family characters we grew to love in the opening books of this series are present and they make more than a cameo. I so loved my time with them, and since I know Vicki Lewis Thompson does this often it is one reason I keep coming back to the series. 

Ben and Molly's story is rather a short plot, it has the normal amount of steam for this series and wraps up how they normally do.I know it can be a stand alone but I think for best enjoyment you need to read the first books in the series to get an idea of Jack, Nick and Gabe.

Not a huge stretch and some may say it is a little too predictable, but sometimes you want to know what you will get - it is a comfort read - and I will be visiting Last Chance ranch for as long as there are new books.
