Abby loved David all her life. Growing up she went everywhere he did. When he joined the Marines she did too. Then disaster struck. After leaving the Marines, she returns to the family ranch in Montana hoping to heal her shattered heart. On a ride into the foothills she sees something glowing in the side of the mountain. When she goes to investigate she discovers a fist-sized sapphire that turns her already fragile world upside down. Jake Barrow is a part-time gambler, full-time hired gun. His decisions are based on hunches and the turn of a card. He’s in the foothills when a young woman comes tumbling down the mountain. Unsure whether Lady Luck has dealt him a good hand or a bad, he takes one look at the beauty at his feet and doesn’t need to shuffle the deck to know she’s his destiny.
Sandra Cox creates the most charming couples in her stories. I’ve never been disappointed. In this story, both Abbigail Jennings and Jake Barrow grow not just in strength, but in love and wisdom as well. I loved them right off, but by the end I was mesmerized.I like the way they are portrayed. In fact, all characters have their own,unique story. They all have emotions, like in real life-not just black or white...we can see their strength , power , sadness, weakness ,their faith ,love ,pain , humor ,smiles , tears.
Montana Shootists is heart warming and makes you fall in love with the characters and the imaginative story. It flows real well and kept me wanting to read more. It is nice to read a romance novel that had something behind it, other than living in the bedroom! Highly recommended reading as a vacation get-away book.
Let yourself be immersed into Montana Shootists' world.
