This is one of those books that I found myself staying up way too late to read! I just couldn't put down! I love Montana, and Denise Hunter did a great job of taking me there through the wonderful details in her book. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good western romance!
I received this book free from the publisher through the booksneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
The "relationship" between Wade and Abigail consisted of a few truck rides, one ride back on a horse w/ him after she fell, and a couple meals over awkward conversation. He never seemed funny at all, and yet, when Abigail decides how much she likes him, she comments to herself about his sense of humor. I thought, "what sense of humor?" And why do you like him, he has no personality! Although, really I'm not sure that Abigail's was that much better. Now that I think about it maybe they were perfect for each other! She apparently had a wonderful relationship w/ her dad who passed away when she was 15, and all the sudden she's having thoughts of how Wade reminds her of her dad. But it has sounded like Wade had been an absentee dad up to that point, spending little time w/ his daughter! So that comparison made no sense to me either!
I also couldn't believe that Abigail was still going to betray them w/ the story, but mostly the romance/relationship between Abigail and Wade seemed forced and made NO SENSE to me!!!! The book just did not flow well at all, but maybe my standards are too high!Read more ›
This sounds like the recipe for a perfect romance, but Abigail and Wade are fallible humans who carry hurts from their pasts. As I read, I often found myself thinking, "No! No! No! Don't do that! You'll regret it; don't you see?" They didn't. So I kept reading, wondering how it could possibly ever turn out well. (Talk about hypertension!)
Doesn't that make for the best of stories? I'm happy to recommend this one and thank Thomas Nelson Publishers for sending it to me. And I'm hoping there's a sequel or two--for Dylan and/or Shay's and maybe even Marla's sake!
This is a Christian fiction book but isn't preachy. I appreciate authors who write books that don't contain profanity and vulgar language or, overt sexual scenes. Thanks to Denise Hunter for writing uplifting, moral, and clean stories. I would recommend this book to others, and I'm sure I'll be reading more of her books.
Abigail works for her mother at a struggling magazine. When she starts having problems with hypertension and headaches, she is sent to the middle of nowhere in Montana and told to rest. While she's there, she's supposed to be checking in on her great aunt to see if she has the faculties to remain alone in her house.
Wade is hiding from his past. When his daughter's nanny backs out at the last minute, he's left with finding someone else in two days to watch her for the summer. Meeting Abigail seems to be the perfect solution, but he discovers that she's making her way past the wall that he erected around his heart when his wife died mysteriously. He was a big name in the rodeo world back then, now he's a quiet rancher out in the middle of nowhere.
When Abigail finds out who he is, she feels like God has given her the opportunity to save her mother's magazine. She begins her snooping, but what starts out as the perfect story soon turns into a crisis. How can she betray these people that have been so nice to her? And what about her feelings for Wade? She doesn't really believe that Wade had anything to do with his wife's death, but hides from Wade what she's up to. I found myself cringing at some of her decisions.
The second book is called The Accidental Bride and follows Shay, someone we get a few glimpses of in this book. Book 3 is The Trouble with Cowboys and is about Dylan, another person we meet in this book. Overall, I liked the book and look forward to reading more from this author.
