Mustang Creek, Wyoming Present Day

Graphic designer Raine McCall is working late into the night when she receives an email from the famous Mick Branson, i.e. Hollywood mogul.  Turns out, Mick is on his way to Mustang Creek and wants a meeting with Raine.  She is suspicious, but why not satisfy her curiosity?  So she agrees to allow Mick to join her for Christmas Eve dinner, the one night a year she spends alone with a glass of wine and her own special green chili cheeseburger.  Raine doesn't let anyone mess with her holiday tradition; it's the one night her daughter Daisy spends with her biological father, Slater Carson, and his family, while Raine basks in the peace and solitude of some needed alone time.  But she wonders, why would the rich and powerful Mick Branson want to speak to her?

Mick is in Mustang Creek to surprise Slater with a special Christmas present, and he has a project to present to Raine, albeit with an ulterior motive.  Mick is intrigued by Raine, not as a co-worker, but as a woman, and he wants to explore a relationship.  Raine is definitely not his usual type; she doesn't possess even one milligram of Hollywood starlet in her DNA; and she's more comfortable in boots and jeans and without make-up.  Raine is simply a country girl through and through.

A very special SNOW COUNTRY CHRISTMAS begins for Mick and Raine over a glass of wine and a Hatch green chili cheeseburger, topped with a late night excursion to a snow covered cabin that once belonged to Raine's famous grandfather.  Mick Branson is sophisticated and polished, and Raine considers herself just the girl next door, no match for this handsome city dweller.  Even so, as Mick gently pursues her, Raine begins to fall in love with this man who mystifies and thrills her.  They are drawn to each other, and neither can deny the attraction, but it's a big leap for them:  Mick is all Hollywood, Raine is all Wyoming country girl.  Can they bridge the gap?

A SNOW COUNTRY CHRISTMAS is the fourth novel in Ms. Miller's series, The Carsons of Mustang Creek , but stands alone on its own merits.  All the characters we know and love are here from previous books, and with the town of Mustang Creek rooting for their holiday romance, Mick and Raine have a lot of support!  Join them inside the pages of this wonderful love story that is sure to warm your heart all the way down to your tippy-toes!

A SNOW COUNTRY CHRISTMAS is magical!
