The Marriage Season by Linda Lael Miller
Contemporary Western Romance
What Goodreads says:
Will the marriage pact be fulfilled? Return to Mustang Creek, Wyoming, with #1 New York Times bestselling author Linda Lael Miller for more Brides of Bliss County!
Since Hadleigh, Melody and Bex—the best of best friends—entered into a marriage pact, two of them have found (and married) the men of their hearts. But Bex doesn't think she'll be as fortunate as the others. Her own first love died years ago in a faraway war, and Bex has lost hope for a happy marriage of her own. She concentrates on her business, a successful chain of fitness clubs, instead.
Then, when single father Tate Calder comes to Mustang Creek with his two sons in tow, who befriend Bex's eight-year-old nephew, she and the handsome, aloof newcomer are constantly thrown together. But is the marriage season over? Or can a man with doubts about love be the right husband for a woman who wants it all?
The Marriage Season is book three of The Brides of Bliss County. Don’t despair though. There is a sample of the next book in this setting at the end of The Marriage Season.
This time it is Hadleigh who finds true love. Tate Calder appeared in a previous book. He is a widower with two young sons. I think most of us knew he was going to be the one for Hadleigh.
I loved how Miller mixed up the two families. When Hadleigh ends up caring for her young nephew the mix begins. The three young boys are good friends and what else do friends do but go fishing and who takes them. Why Tate and Hadleigh of course. The attraction really heats up during the trip to the fishing cabin even when mice and an outhouse are part of the mix.
Both Hadleigh and Tate have hang-ups that they have to overcome but in the end there is a very nice HEA and a honeymoon at the same fishing cabin. This time there are no mice but the outhouse is still there.
HQN Books published The MarriageSeason by Linda Lael Miller in 2015.
I received an ARC of The Marriage Season from Netgalley in return for an honest review.
