Montana Rose (Book Review)

Montana Rose cover

This is the first book in the series called Montana Marriages by Mary Connealy. It is followed by Book 2 ~ The Husband Tree.

This book is set back in the day of living off the land and working hard doing chores to survive in Montana. Cassie was married when she was just a child to a well, not so nice, man. After only being married a few years and pregnant, her husband dies from disease. Before her husband was even in the ground, the town men folk were fighting over who was going to take the China doll, which was what her deceased husband called her. One of the men folk stood out to her, but not as much as she stood out to him. Before she would be done with Red, she would be married to him.

Red taught Cassie things that she never knew were possible. Not only did he teach her how to help with the chores, he taught her about love and about having faith in God. Cassie became the person that she never knew she could become. She became a very strong woman and stood on her own to feet to defend herself.

In becoming a follower of God, she saves the life of her husband Red. With his grateful approval, she invites her biggest enemy into her home and together they offer to help Wade become a better person and help him find himself.

Marketing Release:
Fire up your love of romance with Montana Rose, where Cassie Griffin, a seemingly spoiled pregnant woman, is widowed one day and wedded the next. Marrying handyman Red Dawson seems the only alternative to Cassie’s being hitched to a brutal rancher. But can this “China doll” bear exchanging smooth silk for coarse calico? Red was reluctant to be yoked to an unbeliever, but sometimes a man has no choice. Will Red change Cassie’s heart by changing her name? Wade Sawyer is obsessed with saving Cassie from a marriage of convenience. How far will he go make her his own?

The Author of Montana Rose is Mary Connealy, which I have fallen in love with her books, she is such a great writer. You can read more about her on her website.
