This is a gorgeous story of Paul's first arrival at the ranch, and will push a lot of buttons if, like me, you've already read the Falls Ranch books and are familiar with the characters. We get to see a young and pretty Paul who takes a temporary housekeeping job at the ranch in December, as they're short-staffed for a few weeks before Christmas. At the ranch are Philip, David, Roger, Gerry and Bear (yep, just Philip managing four brats!) and Paul's introduction to the ranch is a rich, heartwarming story that at the same time made me a little teary eyed thinking about David and Roger.
