Denver police officer Paula Lewis drives solo on her patrol when she stops Zach Bennett for going down a closed street. She does not give him a ticket as the warning placard is gone, but gives him directions to his destination; both sense an attraction but neither follow-up on their feelings. The city’s holiday parade that used to excite her has not since her grandma died two years ago as they always went together. Still she volunteers to help at The Christmas House.

Zach has come to the Mile High City from a Colorado ranching county to perform carpentry tasks on the Christmas House. When Zach and Paula meet again, they each realize how much they want the other; even as everyone appreciates the renovated mansion serving as The Christmas House.

The latest Janet Dailey cowboy Yuletide romance (see Santa In A Stetson and A Cowboy Under My Christmas Tree) is an enjoyable contemporary mostly due to most of the townsfolk and visitors sharing the upbeat joy to the world holiday spirit. Although the cast including the leads and a troubled young boy is underdeveloped, readers will enjoy Merry Christmas Cowboy.
