“I cried, laughed and fell in love with all the characters in this book. ” ~ Under the Covers
Dani Wilde had given up her dreams to help raise her brothers after her mom had died in a car accident. To uphold her mom’s memory she raised them the best she can as her mom would’ve raised them. But they are all grown, and now it’s time for her to live her dream. As things start to fall apart, reasons and excuses come up for her to stay. But her brothers will not have it and will tell her the family secret hoping to push her pursue her dreams instead. Nothing is what it seems, and this secret will definitely destroy her.
To add cherry on top of all of her problems, her childhood crush comes back to town. After a successful year in Los Angeles, Ben comes back with the daughter he never knew existed. Determined to be a good father, he seeks help from the Wilde family who seems to have everything in tact. After seeing Dani again, he realizes there may be more reasons to visit this household.
There is a lot at play here. Montana Cherries is about life at its best throwing heartaches, disappointments, and drama into the characters’ lives. Most importantly is rising above the disappointments.
I especially love the romance bit of the story. Ben, despite his problems, recognized Dani for who she was. He pursued romantically but let go when it was needed. Dani, on the other hand, was stronger, pursued what was needed and stood strong even when she had to make hard decisions. It was both heartbreaking and empowering. I cried, laughed and fell in love with all the characters in this book. Other than a couple of slow spots, it was a great read overall.
I know Montana Cherries is meant to be standalone but after reading this book, I have no doubt that we will get more of the Wilde Family. There so much more to explore and I would like to know that each sibling get’s their happy-ending. While Ms. Law and her pub decide on that, we will get another novel before the year is over and another by January, which both are in the works.
