Marietta has a way of bringing people together…
Cowboy Chet Hardwick is in Marietta, Montana, to compete in the 85th Copper Mountain Rodeo. Chet’s not there to make any waves, he needs to focus on the rodeo, avoid his deadbeat father, and return home. But when the beautiful owner at his bed-and-breakfast needs assistance, Chet can’t resist stepping in to help.
After a life-altering accident, Amy Arden left her Wall Street job and impulsively bought Bramble House B&B. While she learns the ropes, she’s also determined to uncover a secret from her late mother’s past—Amy’s birth father. The staff aren’t happy with Amy’s new ideas and quit, leaving Amy struggling to keep the fully booked inn operating. She finds an unexpected ally in one of her guests, a handsome, lone wolf cowboy, who is surprisingly easy to talk to. But just as their friendship heats up, ghosts from both their pasts arrive at Bramble House.
Amy knows Chet is the man she wants, but as Chet receives news that will take him far from Marietta, will he find his way back to her?
Rodeo excitement, love and family.
I loved Amy and Chet’s story. It is so much more than just a romance. It is about life, family and starting over. I enjoyed the rodeo scenes and Amy’s journey from New York City to Montana to run a B&B, which she knew nothing about. I enjoyed seeing Amy make new friends and learning how to run a successful business. Chet is an amazing hero in the story. He is kindhearted and likes to help people even though he didn’t have the best upbringing. Together, they bring so much to each other’s life. I really enjoyed the back stories for these characters as well. I recommend this book to anyone who loves cowboys, small town life and a good family drama.
