A bride on the run

And a cowboy to show her the way home…

Lily Harrison’s wedding day isn’t quite what she imagined.

Not only does her fiancé not love her, but she’s also just discovered she’s a Blackwell—a member of Montana’s well-known ranching family.

Now Lily’s ditched her own wedding for a road trip with handsome cowboy Conner Hannah. But will Lily find her answers in Montana…or lose the cowboy she’s already begun falling for?

Title:  Montana Welcome
Series:  The Blackwell Sisters #1
Author:  Melinda Curtis
Genre:  Modern Western Romance
Published:  August 1, 2020
Publisher:  Harlequin Heartwarming
My Rating:  4.5 stars

Well.  Elias “Big E” Blackwell is up to his usual shenanigans in this newest multi-author series, ‘The Blackwell Sisters‘.  It seems that Big E has a son that he didn’t know about (cough cough) and is setting out to discover his granddaughters and generally make mischief, get entangled in his family’s lives (once again), and perhaps bring some couples together who might not have otherwise met.

In the opening title, ‘Montana Welcome‘ we’re about to discover a runaway bride who just realized the man she’s about to marry is really a friend and not the least bit romantic when she overhears Danny saying to her father (well, the man she’d believed to be her father) that he cannot marry Lily for he doesn’t love her and is being pushed into the marriage.  That was enough to convince Lily that her instincts were right – but someone else also overheard that conversation… the grandfather she never knew about.  Lily will leave her true birth certificate behind with a note written on it and head out on the adventure of a lifetime… or maybe to just escape what’s going on in her life right now with a cowboy who works for her grandfather back to the homestead where Lily is about to discover a whole lot of relatives she never knew existed.

Montana Welcome‘ is a complete roller coaster ride of a story with a newly discovered cousin and her maid of honor to get into mischief with, a growing attraction to one stubborn cowboy, and the realization that she’s been herded and pushed into directions that she no longer wants to go will promise a fast-paced story and one that will break your heart at certain points.

I despised Danny.  There are no kinder words for my feelings about this man.  Big E is up to his natural mischief and the times we run into him are filled with laughter for me.  Conner and Lily will make a loving couple once they get past stubbornness, outside interference, and perhaps themselves.  I won’t spoil any of that for you… but get ready for laughs, tears, frustration, and a really good time.  It was fun to run into familiar faces back at Big E’s ranch (compound really) and get a bit caught up on older book friends from the ‘Return of the Blackwell Brothers‘ series.  I had a blast back in this world, and whether this is a return to this world visit or your first time here – I’m betting that you’ll enjoy yourself as well.

I own a Kindle edition of this title.
