I hope you enjoyed book 3 in the Montana Beginnings series, Taking the Plunge. I loved sharing a little true Montana history about our Hotel Broadwater and Natatorium through Delphina's and Hugh's love story, and also introducing the beginnings of my favorite sport, synchronized swimming in its infancy.
Sadly, the resort was demolished after a devastating 1935 earthquake and a series of events too much for the grand lady. She just couldn't recover. As I mentioned at the beginning, the 1890s in Montana could easily be compared to the legend of Camelot. "For happily ever aftering is here in Camelot..." Yes, the mists have swallowed up some of our most incredible history, but we won't let it be forgotten. I wrote other stories that tell what happens as Montana becomes a state in the Montana Beginning series. The first three books are now available as audiobooks.
Thank you so much for reading this book, spending time with the historic people of Helena, and I hope you'll also enjoy my other books in the Montana Beginnings series. But most of all, thank you for spending time with me. I'll see you shortly in 1894, with the next book in this series, Bitterroot Bride.
