    One thought on “Cattle Valley Mistletoe”

    1. A little cheesier than the first. But I liked the different take on the religious views of sexuality and homosexuality especially with preachers. It was a nice change. Still sort of B movie porn in book form though lol.

    2. I must be in the mood for easy, sweet love stories. I liked this book! I liked the Reverend Casey. He was genuinely a good man. I thought that he and Holden's story was enjoyable, very sexy and easy to read. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.

    3. 2.5 starsAfter second book in Cattle Valley series that I read (I first read #3), I should be prepared that this is sort of the happy-all-around soap opera kind of story. Again, it's too sugary sweet for my taste and the fact that the two of them fall in love with minimum interaction just makes me roll my eyes

    4. What can I say, I love Carol Lynne's laid back writing style and sometimes I just need a happy all around feel good story which Ms. Lynne always provides! :D

    5. Review written for Love Bytes Reviews.Casey Sharp was full of enthusiasm and hope when he accepted the job of Reverend for the Cattle Valley community but with a large to-do list and much to plan for before Christmas, its an exhausting one, as well. When the contractor he hired to build an expansion onto the back of the church has to bow out of the job unexpectedly, Casey’s desperate to hire a replacement and that desperation leads him to calling Halden Kuckleman. Halden hasn’t been in touch [...]

    6. Band 1 und 5 der Reihe haben mir wirklich gut gefallen, auch wenn der Schreibstil wirklich nicht hervorsticht. Alles ist sehr einfach und geradlinig und die Handlung bzw. die Beziehungen werden sehr schnell entwickelt.Dieser 2. Band hat mir aber so gar nicht gefallen. Einer der Hauptprotagonisten (Hal) gefiel mir zwar gut, aber viele seiner Reaktionen fand ich nicht passend. Er ist eigentlich ein 'harter' Kerl und dann lässt die Autorin ihn viel zu schnell von Liebe reden und sogar weinen. Das [...]

    7. This was typical for Cattle Valley.a love morphing into HEA within daysntrived angst sophomoric communication break downs and soppy make up sexd in a dash of mistletoe and you have the Christmas chapter of the Cattle Valley soap opera easy undemanding read if you don't mind two dimensional characters and a weak plot.

    8. I liked this book more than the first because there's a sense of a beginning. The rate in which the characters fall in love is slightly less than the speed of light, but more than a blink of an eye.Still, this was enjoyable.

    9. Good idea but way too short to be successful, resulting in an unrealistic timeline for the amount of issues in the book.

    10. Cattle Valley Mistletoe is the second book in the ‘Cattle Valley’ series. It’s told in third person from the povs of Reverend Casey Sharp, and Contractor Halden ‘Hal’ Kuckleman.(view spoiler)[This story takes up where the first left off, covering the time period from slightly before Thanksgiving, until Christmas. Casey is the replacement for the previous reverend in book one. You’ll have to read that book to find out what happens to that reverend. Casey is upset because the townspeop [...]

    11. The review was originally done for the Romance Reviews and can be found here:theromancereviews/viewReverend Casey Sharp loves his town and the members of his church in Cattle Valley, but he's sure that they don't feel they same way. He's currently paying for the sins committed by the previous minister, and he's not sure how to make it better. It certainly won't help if he doesn't get the church's addition built in time for the annual Christmas Eve party. He's enlisted the help of sexy contractor [...]

    12. It's a simple fluffy read. Small man meets big man and insta-insta connection, then they live HEA. Nothing here to get a strong reaction to either way. Its not awful, fills an hour or two if you've been reading something heavy, but it is disposable.My problem is the generic-ness of the story, there's a feel about it of filling in a template adding the names and occupations its so low impact. No true connection to any character.I actually felt rather annoyed by Rev. Casey. He runs pouting to God [...]

    13. This is the second book in the Cattle Valley series and I loved it just as much as the first one. First Read August 12 to 13, 20152nd Read August 29th 2016 - August 29th 2016Casey Sharp is the new Reverend in Cattle Valley after the former one, Dole came under scandal and arrest in book one. He was a bad man for abusing his boyfriend who became his ex and still was abusing him. Casey had the construction worker he had hired pull out with only the shell of the new community center finished.Hal is [...]

    14. In the first book of this series, Nate had helped a local with his stalking ex-lover who turned out to be the local Minister. Taking over his congregation is Casey Sharp, and unfortunately the community is still reeling from their betrayal and finding it hard to accept Casey. Casey takes his job very seriously and he’s good at it but he’s finding the stress is starting to affect his health. Hal fights his attraction to Casey fearing the man will want to convert him, but instead he finds that [...]

    15. I kind of think its funny that I am a straight female and yet I am reading gay romance I have never read gay romance before the reason I read this book originally is because I have a friend who is gay that is simply in love with this book series because he has told me all about this series (a lot) I figured I would give it a go well all I can is is my friend has fabulous taste (not that he would ever let me forget that for even a second)I may be a straight female but I simply love the guys in th [...]

    16. A delightful story between Hal and Casey. Okay.ghtful doesn't really convey my appreciation of this story, but I'm trying different words. Casey sure had his job cut out for him, coming in to replace the previous Reverend, and he luckily had help from Hal, and of course Nate and the others. This is one of those stories that make me sigh happily. I'm normally all for angst, but in this story (and in all the Cattle Valley books) I really don't mind when it's absent. I might kind of think "oh I'd h [...]

    17. Yep, I've gotta re-read the whole series, it's been a whole year since I'd first read these!I loved Hal and Casey, I love that religion was a main focus but it wasn't what you thought it would be. Not how normal people view religious belief's. Casey, not only a leader of a church but also a gay man, I loved how they knew there was nothing wrong with it and it wasn't even in question. I thought for sure it'd be a huge problem and it wasn't one at all.I loved that. Hal had problems with his faith [...]

    18. There's a sense of the whole insta-love in each of these books which isn't my favorite but I suppose with books this short it's something that can't be helped. I'm not much of a believer when it comes to God and all that either anymore but it wasn't shoved down my throat too much in this book so that was okay too. I really enjoyed Casey and Hal and how much they were willing to give up for the other person and even during their misunderstanding, they still cared enough about each other to risk t [...]

    19. This is the second book in this series and I enjoyed it. It wasn't nearly as generous with hot man on man action as the first book, but the story had a lot of heart. I had some minor issues with the pacing of Hal and Casey's relationship as well as Hal's reason for turning his back on God (though I understood fully why he would be adverse to organized religion or men of the pulpit). But, they were minor issues. The characters in the first 2 books were great and I look forward to getting to know [...]

    20. **3.5**A sweet second story in the Cattle Valley series. Hal and Casey are interesting, emotional men that I felt a good connection with. I enjoyed the plot but the rate at which they fell so hopelessly in love was a little quick for me, along with the odd small thing like the couple having sex so soon after Casey had been ill. Nonetheless, they make a lovely couple and I look forward to seeing a little more of them in upcoming stories. PS I loved that Nate had such a strong role in this - he, R [...]

    21. It’s interesting seeing the diversity of characters and relationships in a series such as this. Everyone is tied together through community, and characters from a previous installment have a way of showing up to remind you of their presence. This book is fairly short like the rest of the series, so everything has to happen pretty quickly and without a ton of angst in order to work based on the length. I enjoyed Hal and Casey!

    22. This was just a feel good story. Casey is the new minister in town and is paying for the sins of the previous abusive preacher. The church rec hall needs a lot of work and Casey hires a reluctent Hal to finish the building up for Christmas. There's a definite attraction between the two men but Hal has God issues and tries to push Casey away. This is Cattle Valley though so the entire town comes through for a HEA ending.

    23. More of a 2.5 star read. Between Hal's hang-ups, falling in love instantly (even though I've never been in love and don't really know how it feels, said Hal), Casey's illness, and getting tested; this book bounced around non-stop. I couldn't really connect with the MC's although I felt I could have with a more in depth story. So yeah, it was just okay. (I did like the little hints of possible matches for future books)

    24. My boyfriend thought I was reading a comedy thanks to my snorting laughter; nope, just my first foray into Carol Lynne's Cattle Valley series. Do you like bad dialogue, poor grammar, unrealistic sex scenes and insta-love? Then you are in for a treat-- or, well, at least an amusing read. Seriously, do not spend money on this.

    25. I liked this second book much more than the first book in the series. This is my first read about a sexually active gay priest/reverend/minister/pastor and it was a surprising change of pace. I liked Hal and Casey together. I wish someone would meet me and fall in love with me right away but that shit only happens in books. Looking forward to Gill's story.

    26. Maybe more like 2.5 starsSyrupy sweetortin plot of the MCs (Hal) seems to have some major hangups that seem resolved pretty quickly given the length of the already short book. Does contain good teasers for the other books.

    27. really enjoyed this one, lots of emotion between themsey was the reverend who was having the function room build in time for xmas he needed help and asked halden who he has a crush on but with him a man of the cloth it makes hal shy away.good story 4 stars

    28. Cattle Valley Mistletoe (Cattle Valley, #2) by Carol LynneThis is the second book in the Cattle Valley series, I loved Casey and Hal.Great read, and can't wait to continue reading the rest of the books in this series.
