The Granger series is a warm hearted series that I could not wait to get to the next book to see how this family worked their ranch and get throught their family trails of life within their faith, continue to forgive and love each other. Buy this set of books, and you won't be sorry that you did.

It was a sweet story. I liked the idea of her falling in love with her late fiancé's best friend...it added a "real" emotional struggle to the story that didn't seem forced or cheesy. And who doesn't love a handsome, sweet Army ranger? ;) This book also made me fall in love with the name September. Definitely wouldn't use it on my daughter, but maybe a character in my own novel someday...a guilty pleasure name for sure!

What a sweet little book. Definitely one of the kinder romances that I've read in awhile.

When she falls down an old mine shaft with one of her students, September knows that they will be rescued. But she still worries. And then her worry increases when she's rescued by none other than Mark Hawkins. Mark was a friend of her late fiance and brings back several painful memories for her. But slowly he inches his way into her heart as she recovers, despite her determination not to let anyone close again. She never wants to hurt that much again. Mark too isn't sure what he wants, his life as an army ranger is dangerous, and he's not sure if he would be a good match for someone as a result. But there's something too kind in September for him to resist.

September is a very sweet person. And she has a lot of grief. Its painful to see some of her emotions sometimes as they feel very real. And Mark honestly is too sweet and good to be real. But I think I like him anyway. Romance novels aren't always realistic in that sense, but a girl can dream there's a guy out there like that. He just seems like he'd be cute in that boy next door way and would treat a girl right. September's sister is the only one I really didn't like. I know she was trying to be protective or something, but she was just a little too harsh.

I really enjoyed the plot. It didn't even need the rescue in the beginning. An old army buddy helping out a grieving girlfriend seems just right. Like something the deceased would have wanted for his friends. Now this was a Love Inspired but I was pleasantly surprised to find that it wasn't preachy at all. And I appreciated that. Made it an easier read for me and I could really sink in and enjoy it. I do wish it had been longer though.

It was such a pleasant change to read romantic fiction that felt like I was reading a love story instead of some guy using whips and ropes on a woman and telling her he loves her. That kind of fiction is ok for those who like that kind of stuff but I wish it wasn't labeled romance - there's nothing romantic about a guy treating a woman like a piece of property or like an animal.

I check out books from the library and if I find a good one, I buy it - like "The Soldier's Holiday Vow" by Jillian Hart.

Now this book's main male character was respectful, considerate, and loving - the kind of guy who is believable as a hero in a romance novel.

The story flowed smoothly, an easy read that had substance. I felt good after I finished the book, unlike a lot of books I read where the main male character is such an obnoxious control-freak throughout most of the book that it's impossible to think of him as a love interest for anyone.

Well done, Ms. Hart - another winner!

Granger Family Ranch
Book 1

This book is the second in the series in a way. The book, "A Soldier for Christmas" was written in the McKaslin series, but was about Pierce, Tim's brother.Tim was a big part in that book (even though he was dead), and the healing process of Pierce. In this book Tim is still a big part of it as his fiancee, September Stevens tries to heal from his death.

Hawk was also in the above mentioned book. He was Pierce's best friend. They grew up together. I was so happy to discover his story started up this dynamic series!!! Hawk never felt like he had time for life. But I really enjoyed how love seemed to have come to him! He rescued September and a little girl from a cave in, then was part of her life. The subtle way these two fell in love was sweet...

This is a good book from beginning to end. It's pretty light on the Christmas part, so it can be read and enjoyed any time of the year!!!

"A Soldier's Holiday Vow" was a wonderful installment in The Granger Family Ranch Series, which I love and adore immensely. September Stevens and Mark Hawkins were amazing characters, and although they both dealt with grief and loss, they were able to find love and each other along the way. The story line was wonderful and the conclusion was superb.

Hawk's and September's story is so beautiful. Ma. Hart as always helps you feel all the options through her wonderful characters. The grief , the pain , the hope, the joy are all represented and in their way they uplifts us all. Another great book by Ms. Hart. Now I am of to read about more of the Granger boys!
