When “Diamond” Jim McCall gambles on a fixer-upper for sentimental reasons, his house of cards implodes – along with his health. Ruby’s ready for a job change but agreeing to become her first crush’s apprentice might be her biggest mistake. She doesn’t doubt they can “flip” the derelict ranch house and save Summit Construction, but at what cost to her heart? After all, Boone Fielding became the son her father never had when she left for college.
Helping Ruby McCall and her sisters flip Diamond Jim’s “money pit” makes sense financially, but he can’t partner with someone he doesn’t trust – and Boone hasn’t forgotten his last close encounter with Ruby. But every day on the job reminds him of why he fell in love with her in the first place.
How is he ever going to let her go when the job is done?

My Rating: 4.5 stars
Returning to Marietta, Montana once again with Montana Blueprint for Love, the beginning of the Property Sisters of Montana series was such a delight. I had so much fun with Boone and Ruby’s romance.
Ruby’s return home ready to work at the apprentice level with her dad at the family construction business isn’t working out quite as Ruby had envisioned. She knew that Boone was working alongside her dad but she certainly didn’t see just how close that relationship had become over the years she was away from home. Once upon a time she and Boone might have had a future, but she left for college choosing another path. Now life was about to become complicated with her father’s health in jeopardy, his business somewhat in trouble because of his determination to renovate one particular property – and being back home where Boone would be in her life daily.
Montana Blueprint for Love is a slow burn, second chance for a couple who really do fit well together, they just have to get beyond the past and choices made then to get to their future. As this is the first story in this series, there is some world-building, I expected it and wasn’t overwhelmed by the people I met and figuring out relationships or how they work. A bonus was running into familiar neighbors from Marietta, something I always love about this small town. I believe Boone and Ruby have laid a good, solid groundwork for the series and I’m definitely looking forward to the stories to come. If you love a good love story, people who act realistically, and a small town that anyone would love to live in, then welcome to the Property Sisters of Montana series. I’m certain you’ll enjoy the visit.
