Aspiring screenwriter Jade McCall looks at every temp job as inspiration for her next screenplay. Her latest boss, nicknamed the “Realtor to the Stars,” is sit-com gold: handsome, rich, charismatic, and intensely brooding. But it’s his intelligence, dry humor, and thoughtfulness that reels her in deeper than she’s ever been.
Mega-successful real estate broker Zachary Masters revels in his prestigious reputation—and why not? He wrote his own story and hides the truth of his past behind the glamorous facade of his success. Jade intrigues him from the start, and soon he’s tempted to take their agreed-upon fling to the next level. But then Jade’s career takes off, sending her home to Montana.
He thinks he’s lost her for good, but the consequences of their brief affair create an unexpected second act. Zach never thought he’d have a shot at a real family until Jade returns with a secret of her own.

Title: All the Stars in Montana
Series: Property Sisters of Montana #3
Author: Debra Salonen
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Published: September 21, 2020
Publisher: Tule Publishing
My Rating: 4.5 stars
It’s time to return to the Property Sisters of Montana for the third title, ‘All the Stars in Montana“, which was for me the story that touched my heart the most (although I’ve loved them all).
Everything you really need before picking up Jade and Zach’s story can be found in the Cover Description. If you haven’t followed along now would be a great time to start this funny, engaging series full of family, shenanigans, finding that forever love, and realizing that the perfect goal for you is within reach.
Jade’s life goal is to achieve her dream of becoming a screenwriter. She’s good, she’s slowly proving that to those that matter, and the property renovations she, and her sisters are taking on make for the perfect new reality renovation show. An idea that she pitched and is now coming true. And it helps that her recent boss is deemed “Realtor to the Stars”, a man she allowed herself to have a delicious (and emotional) fling with once their work together was done. Neither Jade nor Zach was looking for long-term commitments… but then neither counted on falling in love either, or for an unexpected surprise to come about from their time together.
I loved watching Zach and Jade overcome their pasts, acknowledge that they did have something very special between them, and become willing to take the risks that falling in love require. It wasn’t overnight, they have some issues to get beyond, but at the core, they know what’s at stake, a lifetime partner in love. Zach has hidden so much, and he does have a greater amount of issues to overcome. The maturity, and ability to care for others grew over the course of this story (and in some ways, for all the characters in this series).
We’ll also get the chance to catch up with the lives of Jade’s sisters and their loves now. I always have a good time back in Marietta, Montana – I suspect I always will, and ‘All the Stars in Montana‘ was no exception. This will be a series that I’ll read again for it has everything I need in a romance and then some. Discover this wonderful group of characters for yourself in the ‘Property Sisters of Montana‘ series.
