Christmas at Cade Ranch
(Rocky Mountain Cowboys #1)
by Karen Rock
Contemporary Romance
Paperback & ebook, 384 pages
November 7th 2017 by Harlequin

The Christmas they never had.

James Cade has one priority: keep the family ranch running smoothly in the wake of his younger brother's death. With Jesse's ex, Sofia Gallardo, and her young son, Javi, stranded at Cade Ranch over Christmas, this task just got a lot harder. The longer Sofia and Javi stay, the harder it is to imagine the ranch without them. James couldn't save his brother from his inner demons, but he can give his nephew a secure future. Maybe more—if he can figure out how to trust Sofia, and stop feeling like he's betraying Jesse. Because trying to stop thinking about beautiful, determined Sofia is impossible.

Review
Christmas At Cade Ranch is one of the first Christmas books I have read this year and with the winter coming nearer, it made me get excited about Christmas and the joy that the season brings. Although for Sofia, life haven't always been joyful with her own personal issues she is hoping to make changes for herself and her son, Javi.
The story starts out with Sofia and Javi having had some unexpected news although to Sofia she knew it would only be a matter of time before her past came back affecting her present once again. With Christmas drawing nearer, Sofia and Javi have the chance to escape their life and spend time at the Cade Ranch, with the family that holds a past linked to bad memories. Although Sofia is soon taken with James Cade, her son's uncle and the brother of the man who gave her, one of the best things in her life...her son.
Moving on from her issues proves harder than she originally thought due to having different focuses in her life now but maybe Sofia can find the happiness she needs to move on from her past and to a future that is full of joy and not heartache. She just needs to see that she deserves happiness and focus on her future and not the past.
Christmas At Cade Ranch is a truly inspiring story about a mother's journey and her wanting a better life for herself and her son, along with finding love along the way. I liked how the story drew on a topic, such as substance misuse which not many books draw upon as it is a sensitive subject. Although it is one of those things that is relevant in the world today and I am was really pleased to read this amazing story that can put it into a truly modern spin on a brilliantly written Christmas story.
Three Words 
Magical, Romance and Hopeful.
