A homeless young woman finds an unexpected family in beloved New York Times bestselling author Carolyn Brown's novel of healing hearts and new beginnings in a small Texas town. In the fading town of Rooster, Texas, all that's really left is a service station, a church...and the Banty House, a long-ago Depression-era brothel. For more than seventy-five years, Betsy, Connie, and Kate Carson have called their mama's house a home. The three eccentric sisters get by just fine with their homemade jams and jellies, a little moonshine on the side, and big hearts always open to strangers. Like Ginger Andrews. An abandoned teen with a baby on the way and nowhere to go, she's given a room to call her own for as long as she wants. The kind invitation is made all the sweeter when Ginger meets the sisters' young handyman, Sloan Baker. But with a past as broken as Ginger's, he's vowed never to get close to anyone again. As a season of change unfolds, Ginger and Sloan might discover a warm haven to heal in the Banty House, a place to finally belong, where hope and dreams never fade.

This heartwarming romantic Christmas story from bestselling author Carolyn Brown shows that even the most unexpected situation can prove to be a true gift. Snowed in with an attractive stranger? Not what either of them expected for Christmas. Sage Presley's Western paintings are in big demand. She should be at her gallery's holiday show, but instead she races back to Palo Duro Canyon in a desperate effort to prevent her grandmother from selling her ranch. Even though she doesn't spend much time there these days, Sage can't imagine the rest of her life without those roots, not to mention the feeling of not having a place to come home for Christmas. Sage arrives at the ranch to find that Grand has gone off to visit her sister and Creed Riley in residence. Creed's a seasoned rancher, and he's ready to take over. The fact that he's so attractive only irritates Sage more. She's devastated, and to make things worse, she's now stuck at the ranch with a blizzard closing in, no electricity, and a stranger taking up space. Soon Sage finds the house filling up with stray animals fleeing the blizzard, and the handsome stranger turning out to be just the company she needed. It may not be how she pictured, but Christmas at home has never felt so right. (Originally published as Mistletoe Cowboy.)

Leelee Satterfield seemed to have it all: a gorgeous husband, two adorable daughters, and roots in the sunny city of Memphis, Tennessee. So when her husband gets the idea to uproot the family to run a quaint Vermont inn, Leelee is devastated...and her three best friends are outraged. But she's loved Baker Satterfield since the tenth grade, how can she not indulge his dream? Plus, the glossy photos of bright autumn trees and smiling children in ski suits push her over the edge...after all, how much trouble can it really be? But Leelee discovers pretty fast that there's a truckload of things nobody tells you about Vermont until you live there: such as mud season, vampire flies, and the danger of ice sheets careening off roofs. Not to mention when her beloved Yorkie decides to pick New Year's Eve to go to doggie heaven-she encounters one more New England oddity: frozen ground means you can't bury your dead in the winter. And that Yankee idiosyncrasy just won't do. The inn they've bought also has its host of problems: an odor that no amount of potpourri can erase, tacky décor, and a staff of peculiar Vermonters whose personalities are as unique as the hippopotamus collection gracing the fireplace mantle. The whole operation is managed by Helga, a stern German woman who takes special delight in bullying Leelee for her southern gentility. Needless to say, it doesn't take long for Leelee to start wondering when to drag out the moving boxes again.
