When Marietta newcomer Elena Puente is coerced into attending a speed-dating event at the popular Copper Mountain Chocolate shop, she’s blindsided by a serious attraction to local cowboy, Wesley Banks.
Still recovering from a broken engagement, the first-grade teacher from Las Vegas isn’t looking for romance. She’s in Montana to get to know the great-grandfather she never knew existed until she found some hidden family letters. Judge Kingsley is a grouchy recluse and he’s far from welcoming, but Elena is determined to stay in town long enough to give his neglected estate on Bramble Lane a facelift.
Elena’s resolve to avoid romance is tested when she discovers Wesley is the caretaker of her grandfather’s rural property. Soon, she and the cowboy are attending more speed-dating events at the chocolate shop and she’s seeking his advice on how to deal with his ornery boss. Local gossips wager the old Judge will run Elena out of town before anything serious develops between her and Wesley. But Wesley’s a determined man, too, and he’s betting Elena belongs in Marietta forever…with him.
My thoughts on the book:
Elena finds out a family secret and sets off on a journey to find answers. When she stubbles into a speed dating situation she goes with it, I mean whats the worse that can happen right. Wesley is ready to get married have kids and live an amazing life, just one problem he can't find a women that wants the same. When his boss' granddaughter catches his eye it seems that they both are going different ways in life but he wonders if only. Will they both get what they are looking for or will they both find themselves at an impasse?
I love all things Marrietta Montana, and this book did not disappoint at all. I felt like Elena was willing for bring the pass to the for front to find healing no matter what brick walls she was hitting. I loved her and her take no prisoner attitude she was just cocky enough that you find your self saying "wow this girl has no filter and I love it". I loved how Wes did not take much either. He had this loving, kind spirit in the book and you just found yourself truly connecting with them and they feel like they are friends not characters in books. I so loved this sweet story and I wanted so much more because the story was just that amazing. The author did an amazing job at letting the story flow and getting you sucked in. You can not go wrong with this book super fun and super clean read.
