Event planner at the Bar V5 Dude Ranch, Meg Redstone is dreaming of a white Christmas with twinkling lights, sparkly decorations and strategically placed mistletoe. She loves making dreams come true for others, whether planning a holiday wedding or giving her young daughter the best Christmas ever.
Ranch foreman Tyler Murphy loves the holidays, but his newest employee has taken over his barn with her over-the-top decorations. He admires Meg’s desire to give her daughter the perfect Christmas while planning a winter wonderland wedding, but he wants to show her that a Montana Christmas is more than glitter and lights. After raising his younger sister, an instant family is not on Ty’s Christmas wish list. But he finds himself falling hard for the single mom and her little girl. Meg, however, is not interested in a romance with a cowboy like Ty, or any man. Getting her under the mistletoe is going to take a Christmas miracle . . . or a little help from Santa.
We are back in Marietta, Montana for the second book in the series set during the Christmas season featuring the engaging inhabitants of this quaint town.
Ty Murphy is the co-owner of the Bar V5 Ranch, a working ranch with paying guests certain times of the year. They are hosting their first winter wedding and have hired Meg Redstone as the events planner. Ty is from Arizona but loves living here and being a part of this ranch. His sister Rachel, who he raised when his parents died, also lives here with her husband Nate, the other owner of the ranch.
Meg grew up in Montana, she left to climb mountains around the world with her ex-husband but when she got pregnant with her daughter Brooklyn, he left them in the dust. She wants to raise her daughter in Montana, so she has come home.
Mistletoe Wedding is a cute addition to this series set in this small town.
Meg is sweet but seems a bit vulnerable as she is trys to impress the owners of the ranch by getting the barn ready for the wedding. I love Ty’s reaction. here he is enjoying the serene winter landscape thinking about simple Christmas decorations when he walks into color, lights and loud Christmas music in the barn, priceless.
Ty is adorable; he loves everything about a Montana Christmas and can’t wait to show Meg how it is done in Marietta. His only problem is trying to keep a safe distance from both Meg and Brooklyn so he does not fall hard and fast. He is not ready for this type of commitment yet, too bad his heart is not listening as he finds he can’t stay away.
Since this is a short story, the romance is quick, and with a guest wedding and Christmas around the corner there is no time to waste. The two together are cute and the chemistry is apparent and I love her daughter Brooklyn; there is something about a six year old that makes a heart warm, especially at Christmas. I like how each book is incorporating the Marietta Stroll, the local shopping event that celebrates the season, something special for the town.
I give Mistletoe Wedding by Melissa McClone 4 stars!
