Book Description: Everything accountant Montana Brown thought she knew about love and marriage goes topsy-turvy when her parents split up. Shaken, she heads to Mule Hollow, Texas, to stay with family and take a chance on an old dream: being a cowgirl. With all her might, she tries to resist the charms of a too-handsome cowboy. Luke Holden is going after his own dream of expanding his ranch. A wife isn't on his wish list. But the Mule Hollow matchmakers are fixin' to lasso Luke and Montana together--with a little faith and love
My thoughts: I was introduced to Mule Hollow in An August Bride. I quickly realized that the marriage posse had been to work in previous books. I was intrigued because they were so much fun in the book and I wanted to read about more of their meddling ways. It really isn't hard to read one book and find another waiting in the wings that you want to read.
Montana and Luke are two people who are not looking for a relationship. They both have plans and dreams that do not include falling in love. She wants to live her dream as a rodeo barrel racer, and he wants to build up a legacy to take care of his brothers and their offspring. It doesn't take long for the posse to link them together and see that they are a good fit.
Both Montana and Luke come from dysfunctional families. Her father is controlling, his father told him he would be worthless. Both come from broken homes and broken spirits. Healing and faith is theme that help them overcome adversity and become better people.
This book a contemporary western. It centers around a rodeo that brings a small town together. It also has strong christian themes. I just put books two and three on my TBR list. :)
