My Thoughts
I love Dana Mentink and her ability to take strong willed characters, and create not just a suspenseful, page turning romance novel, but creates one that will leave me chuckling through it. When I read a Mentink LIS, I am always hooked from page 1 and held captive (no pun intended for a suspense novella!) until the very last page is reached, and with LOST CHRISTMAS MEMORIES, it was no different. This book is a fast paced, well written, faith inspiring novella and it has me wanting more from this talented author!
Tracy’s character was awesome. From the start, I felt her heart pounding like it was my own, like I was the one who suffered through witnessing a horrific event. I loved that feeling. Ms. Mentink added twists and turns to Tracy’s emotional story and  I loved that. It was like being on a roller coaster. And when Keegan enters the story. Lordy Be! That’s  fine cowboy there! I loved when he was introduced to the story. You see, I married my own Knight in Cowboy Boots myself, and I saw a lot of him in Keegan with his belief in Tracy and his protectiveness. He was definitely a great addition to the story!
If you are looking for a book this holiday season to keep you on the edge of your seat, and up all night finishing it, then this is definitely one you don’t want to miss! It’s the perfect blend of suspense, romance,  and holiday and blended with just the right amount of hope and faith. This book will be one that I keep and share with others when they want a quick, captivating read. Great job and 4 stars to the talented Ms. Mentink! Can’t wait for another!

Guest Post from Dana

Writing this book was bittersweet for me. It was lovely to finally be able to tell youngest Thorn brother Keegan’s story, but I sure am sorry to say goodbye to this series! It was such fun to write about these four kinsmen and the family bonds that held them together through all manner of murder and mayhem! Here at Mentink Manor, we have recently sent a bear cub away to college for the first time. It feels like I have lost a limb now that my Boo Boo is gone! Fortunately, we will enjoy having her home for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. Though it won’t be a cozy country Christmas like it is for Keegan (we live in a city of 80,000 here in Northern, CA) we will be thrilled to have all our family home to celebrate together (Mama Bear, Papa Bear, two cubs, a naughty terrier, and a senior citizen box turtle!) I hope you enjoy this last installment in the Gold Country Cowboy series. I am sending along our best wishes for a blessed holiday season, from our Mentink household to yours!
