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.
