Travis had been here at Sutton Station for just over a year. We were technically engaged, not that we’d told anyone. He was happy just knowin’ I’d said yes, and I had some head-clearin’ stuff to work through. Knowing I was good enough for Trav was one thing, but knowing if I was good enough to be a husband and father was somethin’ else entirely.
Life at Sutton Station had never been better. Business was strong, Trudy and Bacon’s little baby, Gracie, was a few weeks old now and as cute as a button, Ma’s health was good, and my relationship with Laura and Sam was in a pretty good place. And Travis? Well, life with him was still all kinds of perfect.
But, to Travis’s dismay, Christmas at the Station was just another day. Another day of getting up before the sun, feeding animals, fixin’ what needed fixin’, and checking water troughs all while tryin’ to keep out of the blistering heat.
And this year weren’t much different. Only that it was Travis’s first Sutton Station Christmas. The fact we didn’t go all out with decorations and celebrations baffled him, and if I was bein’ truthful, it disappointed him too.
Which was why I had to make it a special kind of Christmas…
Note: The author included a blurb at the start of this tale explaining where it falls in the Red Dirt Heart timeline. If you are really worried that you’ll be confused, use this as an opportunity for a series re-read!
This was a very cute short novella! Do I wish it had come out in the right order? Yes. But did that hamper my enjoyment? Nope not one bit. This story reemphasized all that is Travis and Charlie and their love for one another. It was short but full of laughter and a love was so real and intense you could almost touch it. If you are a fan of this series, you need to pick this one up. It will warm your heart and remind you why Travis and Charlie are one of those fictional couples you envy and that you remember for all times.
I would like to thank the author for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
