(Montana Born Christmas #2)
by Melissa McClone
Dreaming of a white Christmas with twinkling lights and sparkly decorations at the Bar V5 Dude Ranch, event planner Meg Redstone wants to give her daughter an unforgettable holiday in their new home. She loves making dreams come true for others, even though she gave up on hers a long time ago.
Ranch foreman Tyler Murphy wants to show Meg that a Montana Christmas is more than all the over-the-top glitter and lights. Although he’s not looking for an instant family, he’s falling fast for the single mom and her little girl. But a cowboy like Ty isn’t on Meg’s wish list. Getting her under the mistletoe is going to take a Christmas miracle…or a little help from Santa, himself.
Melissa McClone’s writing is so smooth and alluring and I liked it. She actually got me sighing and grinning and dreaming of Christmas as early as October. Mistletoe Wedding introduces Meg Redstone, a newly hired event planner at the Bar V5 Dude Ranch. She’s a single mom to a a beautiful daughter, Brooklyn, who was really as cute as a button. No wonder little Brooklyn got everyone in the bar/ranch wrapped in her finger. Including Tyler Murphy, the foreman / boss at that ranch.
Now, Ty had noticed Meg and seemed to be attracted to her, however, he didn’t like to get involved. For him, he could no longer commit to a relationship with a child in tow, because he already experienced being a mom and dad to her sister when their parents died. He knew what’s in store for him if he’s going to start a relationship with the event planner, so right then, he told her that they could only stay as friends.
But mistletoe all over the place are intent to make people kiss each other and fall in love. Such is what happened to newlyweds Noah & Caitlin (in another McClone book). Meg made sure that their wedding was special and magical, but what about her own heart? It looked like Ty had already closed the door for her and Brooklyn, eventhough it was obvious that he was inexplicably drawn to them. Will they ever spend Christmas together in the near future?
Mistletoe Wedding is such a cute and enjoyable read. I liked all the characters in the story, especially Brooklyn who was really adorable. Her innocent outlook in life always brought Meg and Ty together, that’s why I love her! Somehow I noticed, it always makes me feel great whenever I read a Christmas story. Thanks to Melissa McClone for this light-hearted & feel-good read.
