Winter Warm Up blog hop



 




 




Last year on Christmas day, my daughter and I took our dogs and went on a trail ride. It was one of the best days ever! This year is too cold, but we will do it again on another warm year.



 


In Cooper’s Redemption, Elizabeth Adams is riding before Christmas, but not on a pleasure ride. She is searching for her missing mother in the Colorado


Excerpt:


From studying the map, Elizabeth knew an old road ran across Cooper’s ranch to the government land beyond. She mounted and quickly left his barnyard. About four inches of snow covered the ground, but the route was distinguishable because of deep ruts.


Cold air bit into her face, and she buried her chin into the warmth of her collar. The rest of her was toasty warm. If she wasn’t so worried, she might really enjoy a ride like this. A few clouds floated across the sky, but none of them looked like they bore snow. Cedar and scrub juniper trees on the lower hills soon gave way to dark green pines. All covered with a dusting of snow. Their spicy scent reminded her that Christmas was just a little over a week away.


She just had to find Mom by then.


The only sound was the plop-plop of Splash’s hooves hitting the soft snow. He didn’t seem to be having any trouble going, and Elizabeth kept her gaze sharp, hunting for any sign of humans. Nothing jumped out at her. If she didn’t know people had built the trail she followed, she would’ve sworn no one had ever been here before. A long stretch of straightaway loomed before her, and Elizabeth urged Splash to canter.


I am giving away a copy of Dangerous Intent, which includes Cooper’s Redemption, to one random commenter who tells me about their favorite Christmas.
