Amber and Trey’s story in Meet Me in Montana by Debra Salonen, book two in her Property Sisters series has these two falling in love at first sight as they are about to pass each other like two ships in the night but also has them re-examining their priorities. Amber McCall is more than ready to leave her lucrative job in the Bay Area to return home to Montana, buy into a boutique store and assist her sisters in flipping homes. Amber never lost her dream to have a career in design. Working as an apprentice for Trey Brandel to stage the Property Sisters first project just fuels her decision to return home. The problem is she in love with Trey who leaving on the next plane to New York. Magazine editor and skilled designer Trey finally has that offer of a job at his father’s art and design magazine. He is hoping this will give him a chance to reconnect with his father and the city he left when his parents divorced. Trey knew his time in Montana was temporary but leaving Amber is definitely a hardship; making him question if he is doing the right thing. Amber and Trey share an amazing night, under the stars at a retreat where they can get back to nature, discovering their off the charts chemistry, and magnetism. They worked well together decorating the house, where their strengths played off each, one where they fit together like puzzle pieces. Ms. Salonen wrote a wonderful second chance story that is definitely not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with sizzling chemistry, amusing banter, and charming characters giving Amber and Trye a chance to find their forever love. I highly recommend Meet Me in Montana to other readers and look forward to the next book in this series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
More of a 3.5 stars story I enjoyed book one in the series, Montana Blueprint for Love and had high hopes for this one. The story centers around Amber McCall, the sister that’s a wiz in the world of investment. She’s starting to wonder whether it’s time to leave the rat race, and go back home to do what she loves. During her visit home she meets Trey Brandel, the son of the owner of Amber’s favorite store and one she would like to be part of. As the friendship develops into more, Trey is torn and decides to go work with the father in NYC. A man he barely knows but hopes this time together, will change that. This was about being at the wrong place at the wrong time. About how our childhood and how those that are suppose to love and care for us, does in fact affect us in adulthood. About making choices, even if they are hard ones, in order to find peace and happiness. Though it was entertaining, it didn’t wow me. I would have given it a 3 stars rating, but I respect the time and effort the author put into it, and for that, I am giving it 4 stars. I was entrusted a copy of this book by TULE Publishing. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
As we head back to Marietta, Montana Amber the middle sister comes home from the Bay area to help out with the new venture of flipping houses. It turns out there is a tv show too based on the 3 sisters flipping houses and using the antiques and re-using items from around the area. Speaking of antiques we have Trey who is co-owner of the antique shop in town and who we can see sparks flying between Amber and Trey. The only issues is Trey is only in town until his mom is better after having an accident then he is headed back to New York City to work with his father on a magazine. So really it's worthless to start something that will take them no where but these two have one wonderful night anyways. Life has it's own idea about what needs to be and fate will step in and push buttons, hammer nails and even paint walls if need be. This is a series of books that could easily be on tv and one I am so looking forward to the next book in this series.
