Finding true love: priceless
RUST CREEK RAMBLINGS
People say that the odds of finding your perfect partner are rather like the odds of hitting the lottery: slim to none. It’s hard to believe, faithful readers, but Nate Crawford may just have accomplished both. We have the scoop on Rust Creek Falls’ best-kept secret: our former mayoral candidate is now a very wealthy man! Yet he is going out of his way to make sure no one finds out. The question is, why?
Insiders whisper that Nate is also keeping another secret from his new girlfriend, nurse Callie Kennedy—a big one—and it could be a game changer. Place your bets, dear readers! What will she do when she learns her “regular guy” boyfriend is really a maverick millionaire?
Sometimes you read a bunch of Harlequin books with similar titles and covers and they start to get all mixed up in your mind. However, this author does some things to make her books stand out a little more than others.
Using a Montana setting is interesting for these small town romances. It’s not exactly uncommon, but it sometimes makes a nice change from the oh-so common Texas! I really liked the introduction of the main characters and thought the opening part of the book really set the scene and made you imagine the location. I’m not sure I want to *experience* a Montana winter, but it sounds fascinating!
This is a well-crafted little book with all the things you’d expect from a slice of Americana. Harlequin Special Editions are pretty consistent in quality, more so than most other Harlequin lines.
There’s a scene at the end that’s a pretty good argument for not having children! There seem to be a lot of horror pregnancy and childbirth stories popping up in category romance these days! Good thing I’ve never been a maternal sort of person!
This was a solid, quick read.
