Can a fake date

Become the real deal?

Triplet Georgie Harrison will do anything to keep her family—including her newfound Blackwell relatives—from worrying about her.

This is exactly why she’s enlisted way-too-charming rodeo cowboy Zach Evans to be her fake boyfriend for her sister’s Montana ranch wedding.

The problem is that Georgie’s not just tempted to fall for her own ruse…she’s also falling hard for the roguish cowboy she can never have.

Montana Wedding is the fifth and final story in The Blackwell Sisters multi-author series, and it brings everything, and everyone, nicely together for a fun romance and a wrap-up of the series that fills in all the open spaces bringing closure to the thread woven throughout all of the sisters’ happy endings.

Georgie is perhaps the most single-minded, tunnel-visioned of all the sisters.  She sees a goal and she heads for it, nothing and no one gets in her way of achieving that goal.  She’s driven yes, but by the wrong thing as we’ll come to realize in her story eventually.  I liked Georgie while acknowledging that she could frustrate a statue at times.  And Zach is certainly no statue, that’s a fact.

With her sister’s wedding looming ahead of her, and a decided lack of boyfriend in her life, Georgie got a work colleague to do a bit of stealth work for and with her.  All he had to do was be at her side, go to the wedding functions, oh, and help convince her family that her move to London and a new research lab job was a good idea.  He had one job, one… except he didn’t show up on the plane and wouldn’t answer her texts.  Somehow the handsome cowboy sitting in the window seat managed to talk her down from the panic and maybe set a new plan in motion if he would agree.

Zach had one goal.  He had to get to Ethan Blackwell at the Blackwell Ranch and convince him to take on his beloved horse, Rain Dancer, as a patient.  Ethan was their final hope and he could not fail (for more than the obvious reasons).  When the pretty lady in the aisle seat went ballistic over a no-show colleague, and as he learned a bit more of where she was headed agreeing to her “pretend” relationship idea would work for them both.  No emotions to get involved just each getting what they wanted – if only it had stayed that way.

Montana Wedding brings all of the couples of this series, and some from the previous series, Return of the Blackwell Brothers, together giving each a bit of page time, some more than others – and I loved seeing how those earlier couples were facing the next challenges in their lives.  Zach and Georgie often made me smile, and just as often had me wanting to either smack them both upside the head Gibbs style or sitting them down for a stern talking to.  Stubborn, bull-headed, and not able to see or acknowledge what was right in front of them all the time – they worked so well as a couple but spent more time denying that fact than anything else.

I’ve enjoyed this series, laughed, cried, got mad, and had a good time with new and old book friends.  Hopefully, Big E will find more relatives so we can get another taste of the Blackwell family and this combination of authors once again.  If you love a really good series full of interesting couples facing a variety of challenges on the way to finding true love, then this series would be perfect for you.

I own a Kindle edition of Montana Wedding.

Available in paperback or for your favorite e-reader, mine is the Kindle.
