Birdie Willis has travelled from her home in Australia to Montana in an effort to help herself get over the trauma of her father’s death. She plans to continue with her online work and to spend most of the summer alone photographing wild animals. Henry has other ideas for her future – he’s matchmaking, again! He is trying to match her to Ethan Morgan, one of his twin sons. Ethan and his brother, Cordell, had a traumatic childhood and only discovered who their father was when their mother was dying. Ethan is the quiet twin, thought by most to be a thinker and talker rather than fighter, quiet and steady rather than fiery like his twin. Henry manages to get Birdie to agree to let Ethan act as her guide in the beautiful mountainous countryside. They both have grief and trauma in their lives and now they are exploring together will they be tempted to explore attraction to each other and trust their hearts as Henry has plotted? Will Henry succeed again or will Birdie’s grief stop her trusting her heart to this handsome cowboy?
I have thoroughly enjoyed several books in this series and it is great to meet some familiar characters again but I don’t think you need to have read the others to still enjoy this book, too. Having said that, if you read this one you’ll probably want to read others in the series, to! It is very well written with characters whose attitudes, actions and emotions are developed and changed whilst their relationships with others are explored. It is a lovely sweet romance, with danger from poachers, interference from a meddling matchmaker and all the angst and turmoil from grief all playing important roles in the story. A lovely light read to enjoy and escape into the marvellous setting with well developed characters – highly recommend!
Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
