Six Months in Montana

Book 1, Montana Sweet Western Romance Series

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Molly Bishop loves living in Manhattan and managing a boutique luxury hotel. She's about to be promoted to her dream job of General Manager, the role she's been striving for her entire career. 

There's only one thing standing in her way. 

The will of her childhood friend, Christian Ford's grandfather. She hasn't even seen Christian in over ten years, but a recent run-in with his grandfather during a rare visit home, resulted in a new condition to the will. Christian will only inherit the ranch he's been running and the real estate development business that he has expanded, if he marries Molly and stays married for at least six months. 

This is what I would call a cozy romance, it's romantic and sweet and is set in a small fictional town about 30 miles from Bozeman, MT. Warning, if you prefer your stories with the bedroom doors wide open and the windows steamed up, you may be disappointed. :)

I love to cook and try new recipes and if you do too, you may want to check out the recipe I included at the end of the book, for Lazy Lobster Casserole, the dish that Molly serves her guests at the Rose Cottage Inn's first wine dinner. It's a recipe I know by heart and have made a million times and is great for special occasions. It's a holiday tradition in our family to have it every Christmas Eve. :)

Q & A with the Author

Q-This is a sweet western romance set in Montana with a marriage of convenience plot. Why Montana? Why a marriage of convenience? Hasn't that been done to death?

A-The setting of Montana is actually what came to me first. I was inspired by a close friend who moved to Bozeman in her late 30's because she'd visited the area once and it felt like home. She bought a kayak and joined a local kayak club to make friends and ended up meeting the love of her life. A year later married and now have a five month old baby boy. So now, to me, Bozeman means romance. :) 

I grew up reading Harlequin category romances, and have always loved the marriage of convenience stories. I knew they were popular with western romances, with all the mail-order brides, and I wanted to put a modern spin on it. I loved the idea of a meddling grandfather who plays match-maker from the grave. Having the stipulation that Molly and Christian have to stay married for six months made the premise even more fun. I also have a soft spot for the idea of best friends (in this case former childhood best friends) who end up together.

Q-What writers have influenced you?
A-Where do I start? There are so many! There's a few main ones that come to mind who I really admire. Debbie Macomber is one. I love the sweet romances that she writes and the family focused women's fiction and continuing series. I first discovered her when she was writing for Silhouette and fell in love with her voice. I bought every Debbie Macomber book as soon as they were released. Maeve Binchy is another favorite. I love the warm cast of characters that populate her stories. Danielle Steel is another writer I really admire. My sister and I read all of her books as soon as they are released. We always know exactly what we are getting with her books, a sweet escape with likable people and a story you can't put down. 

Q-What's next?
A- I'm working on MISCHIEF IN MONTANA, which is the third book in this sweet western romance series. MISTLETOE IN MONTANA is book 2, and that's available now and features Traci and Dan, who we meet in SIX MONTHS IN MONTANA. I also recently released a cozy mystery, TRUST, which was really fun to write and is the first in a new series set in a seaside town in Massachusetts.

Customer Reviews

Six Months in Montana

This was a great story the characters so real I enjoyed it so much!!!

Frustrating

For a romance novel the author doesn't do a good enough job of building up the relationship and sexual tension of the two characters. It was also frustrating having to read through pages of irrelevant material. The store itself is great but I wish more detail was put into building up the romantic relationship.

Fabulous!!!

This book was wonderful! It's so hard to find a romance book nowadays that's so heartwarming while still being clean! I really appreciated that aspect so much! Pam Kelley managed to take a pretty common plot line (a marriage of convenience) and come up a beautiful, well-written love story that I thoroughly enjoyed! Now I'm just waiting for her next book to come out!
