Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Series: Montana Lakeside #2
Title: Redeeming her Montana Love
Author: Vella Munn
Publisher: Montana Born, Tule Publishing
Published: July 6th, 2016
This is the second novel in this series and is set beside Lake Serene in Montana. As usual, I’m reading the series in the wrong order! I’ve already read the fifth book in the series and jumped at the chance to read this one, too. I don’t think it matters, I still enjoyed escaping back to this serene locality and meeting some of the people living and working there.
In this story, business woman Alisha Hearne has returned to the family’s lakeside cabin after the deaths of first her mother and then her father. She’s unsure about many aspects of her life after losing her parents and inheriting the business her father set up and one of the decisions she needs to make is whether to repair the cabin or sell it. This is difficult because of the many memories she has of staying there. When Nate Quaid, who is a plumber working at the nearby resort comes out to help with some emergency repairs their attraction is mutual but both have secrets and feelings of guilt. Will they be able to trust each other with what has happened in the past? Dare they risk taking down the walls protecting their heart to give their love a chance?
This is a heartwarming romance with well developed characters who are very likeable and easy to empathise with because the author portrays them and their problems so well. The attraction between them may be instant but neither are immediately willing to reach out to the other because of their pasts. As the romance develops there are still problems for them to overcome before they stand a chance of achieving their HEA together. This is lovely romance to escape into and I look forward to reading more by this author in future!
I requested and received an ARC of this novella NetGalley. This is my honest review.
Alisha Hearne has come back to Lake Serene to decide whether to sell her family’s cabin or repair it. But the painful memories this cabin holds might prove too much for Alisha to bear – until a handsome, muscular man shows up.
Nate Quaid doesn’t stay in one place for long. Once his work at Lake Serene is finished, he’ll move on before his secrets can catch up to him. But when Nate realizes the lovely young woman needs more than his expertise, he might be tempted to stay.
Aisha and Nate long to reach out to each other, to trust again. But are they capable of revealing their deepest secrets? Do they dare risk falling in love?
