REVIEW: The Marriage Season by Linda Lael Miller

Will the marriage pact be fulfilled? Return to Mustang Creek, Wyoming, with #1 New York Times bestselling author Linda Lael Miller for more Brides of Bliss County!


Since Hadleigh, Melody and Bex—the best of best friends—entered into a marriage pact, two of them have found (and married) the men of their hearts. But Bex doesn't think she'll be as fortunate as the others. Her own first love died years ago in a faraway war, and Bex has lost hope for a happy marriage of her own. She concentrates on her business, a successful chain of fitness clubs, instead. 

Then, when single father Tate Calder comes to Mustang Creek with his two sons in tow, who befriend Bex's eight-year-old nephew, she and the handsome, aloof newcomer are constantly thrown together. But is the marriage season over? Or can a man with doubts about love be the right husband for a woman who wants it all?

RELEASES: MAY 26, 2015


My Thoughts:
Loved this book! She is such a wonderful story teller. This is book 3 of her Brides of Bliss county. I admit I have not read any of the others, but found no issues with understanding. This is a great stand alone.

This is the story of Tate Calder, widower with two young sons, and Becca “Bex” Stuart.  What a sweet romance between these two. Bex’s sister has marital problems, and leaves her six year old son Josh with Bex while she “goes to find herself.” Josh finds stability with Bex while being a part of a very loving group of adults and two little boys, with dogs, around his age to play with. Amidst this drama, Bex and Tate start dating. What evolves in a poignant story of second chance love and family.

This is a good read with excellent characters. I’d be happy to go back and read the earlier in the series after this exceptional read. There’s humor, heartache, love and a great HEA.

Review of Jude Devereaux's Ever After

Life is anything but perfect for Hallie Hartley, a young physical therapist who has given up nearly everything—even her love life—for her beautiful blonde stepsister, Shelly. Though Shelly's acting career has never taken off, she has certainly perfected the crocodile tears to get what she wants—which all too often means Hallie's boyfriends. When Hallie arrives home early from work one fateful day, she makes two startling discoveries that will turn her life upside down: Not only has a mysterious relative left Hallie a house on Nantucket, but Shelly has been trying to steal it. Desperate to put her troubles behind her, Hallie impulsively flies to Nantucket.

New trouble, however, has already settled into Hallie's guest room in the form of her newest client. Hallie is told that wealthy, young James Taggert has injured his leg in a skiing accident. Assuming that the devastatingly handsome man has led a charmed life, Hallie is surprised by Jamie at every turn throughout his recovery. His attentions draw her out of her shell—but he has a dark secret, and is tormented by nightmares that only her presence can keep at bay. She suspects there's more to his injury than he's letting on.

On this gorgeous island rich in history, magic is everywhere, even in Hallie's own backyard. As Jamie's relatives arrive for a wedding gala, something wonderfully unusual is in the air. There's an aura of romance—enhanced by a pair of matchmaking ghosts and a colorful island legend. In their own little corner of the world, Jamie and Hallie unravel the timeless secrets of their own hearts, and a very special story of True Love destined to last forever after.

Releasing June 23, 2014

My thoughts:

Jude Deveraux, master storyteller, gives us the third in her Nantucket Brides trilogy and more of her Montgomerys.

Ever After is a sweet story of Hallie and Jamie. Hallie inherits a house on Nantucket and agrees to be physical therapist to Jamie, a war veteran who has injuries from battle and from a recencent a skiing accent. He keeps his background secret from Hallie, allowing her to believe him a rich playboy in order to avoid sympathy. There is much to push these two together between physical therapy, meddling family members, nosy neighbors and the fascination of potential ghosts.

This was a good story, but it lacked some sparkle between the main characters. There was a lot of outside world distraction with everything else that was going on around the main characters. It helps to read the other stories in the trilogy but can be read as a stand alone.
