4.0 out of 5 stars A good start to a new series March 15 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In economically depressed Jester, Montana, twelve of the local merchants each chip in a dollar every week for the Big Bucks Multi State Lottery. When one of their numbers hit, they win over $1 million each after taxes.
In this first installment in the Millionaire, Montana series, Shelly Dupree is struggling to keep the cafe/coffee shop she inherited from her parents open. She is two months behind in the rent and is about to be evicted when the lucky lottery numbers are drawn. With this new found financial freedom, Shelly plans to finally spend some quality Shelly time and indulge in some of her dreams of travel. When the press flock to Jester to cover everything they can about the new millionaires, one desperate young unwed mother abandons her baby in Shelly's cafe so Shelly can give the baby what the mother cannot. Shelly has no experience with babies since she spent all her time as a youth working in her parents cafe rather than baby sitting. When family services cannot come to pick up the baby for a few days because of staff shortages due to illness then weather, the local sheriff asks Shelly to look after the baby with the aid of the hunky new pediatrician, Connor O'Rourke. With Connor's help, Shelly soon builds confidence in her mothering abilities and falls in love with the baby while Connor is falling in love with Shelly.
Shelly is a strong heroine whose personal growth makes this book worth reading.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
Seems Shelly Dupree, owner of The Brimming Cup, returned to her coffee shop after deposting her lottery winnings to find an abandoned baby on the counter. Who precious little Max belongs to is a mystery, but that's not the only gossip buzzing around town. Sources reveal that the new doctor, Connor O'Rourke, spent the night at Shelly's house, supposedly to help her care for the foundling. Word has it that the gorgeous MD has more than medicine on his mind- and rumors of a knee-buckling kiss witnessed in the diner during the morning rush have been flying. Only time will tell is Shelly will go from dishing out the daily special to serving up her very own wedding cake!

4.0 out of 5 stars Strong characters, great dialogue, engaging storyline with heart April 10 2014
By Hope this helps - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Rating: 4.5 stars
Note: Stands alone read. 1st in the 12-book, multi-author series, Millionaire, Montana which revolves around 12 residents of small town of Jasper, who share a multimillion dollar jackpot.

GOOD READ! Well written, appealing plot, with a great supporting cast. A sweet, gentle romance between two strong, independent characters, reveled slowly through the dialogue -- wonderful, funny, witty, sometimes flirty, dialogue.

THIS FIRST STORY follows the hard-working cafe owner, Shelly Dupree, who finds an abandon baby in her cafe with a note asking her to take care of six-month old Max. With CPS unable to come right away and Shelly without any baby experience, she allows newly arrived pediatrician, Connor O'Rourke, to stay at her house and teach her baby skills. This is romance at its best, immediate attraction followed by slowly learning about each other the old fashioned way -- they spend time together and talk to each other.

OVERALL, two complex and charming characters. Connor is kind, patient, and looking to start a family, and Tessa is always-working, super-responsible, and while she is hoping for a new future, she is uncertain what it should be. These differences make for a sassy, funny romance.

You may also enjoy the complex characters and storytelling of N. Bruhns, A. Stuart, L. L. Miller, E. Palfrey, R. C. Ryan, or L. Wilde. For sweet, funny, romances with great descriptive imagery and heart touching angst, try S. Fox, C. Colter, and E. Palfrey.
