A great story and great audio performance.
I’ve read all of the Texas series books and LOVED them. Texas Christmas is book 5 and when I found out that the audio version was available I was eager to listen to it.
I’m fairly new to the world of audio books. I always thought that I’d much rather read a book than listen to one. What I’ve come to realize is that the narrator/performer can make all the difference to my enjoyment of the story. This is the second book I’ve listened to performed by Sean Crisden; both of them were written by one of my favorite authors, RJ Scott.
I listened to the first book (The Rancher’s Son – a book I read and loved) immediately after listening to another book; an historical M/M story with a wonderful narrator. When I listened to The Rancher’s Son, performed by Sean Crisden, I didn’t enjoy it as much as the historical. What I now realize is that it was just too big of a shift to go from historical to contemporary western without a break between the two of them.
As I listened to Sean perform Texas Christmas I was amazed by how perfectly he nailed the different characters’ voices. I was totally pulled into the story again and felt so connected to the characters; it was a fantastic experience. I’m now a big fan of Sean’s audio performances and he does perform, not just narrate.
As for the story, I can’t say enough good things about books by RJ Scott and the Texas series in particular. Texas Christmas is about Liam, who came to work at the “D” in book 4, Texas Family. While you might be able to listen to (or read) Texas Christmas without having read any of the preceding stories I don’t recommend it. All of the books are interwoven and one builds on the other with different couples taking center stage but with Jack and Riley also being a large part of the story.
It’s hard to describe/review just this one story without getting too long winded about the entire series. I’ll just say that if you’ve read and/or listened to any of the other Texas books you won’t want to miss this one.
