A Montana Legacy was such a joy to read. The characters were interesting and I was able to immediately connect with them. That is such an important part of enjoying a story! This book is not an inspirational fiction title, but is instead classified as a “sweet, clean read”. It is also book two in a series, but I had no trouble reading it as a stand alone.
The two main characters, Seth and Kate, are so fun to read about. There is a lot of tension flowing between them. They are attracted to each other, but they are also in an awkward situation. Kate has traveled to Montana from inner-city Minneapolis and she definitely has an uphill climb ahead of her if she wants to be accepted in this small community. She also has some big trust issues from things that have happened in her past.
Seth carries his own baggage around and finds that trusting Kate does not come easily. Add in a sweet little girl, a distant ex-wife, and many surly characters from the ranch and you have a story that I had trouble setting down. A Montana Legacy has lots to recommend it: a sweet romance, interesting characters, questions from the past, suspense, and danger. I look forward to reading more from this author. (5 stars)
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review, which I have given.
