Returning to her family’s summer cabin on Lake Serene wasn’t the easiest thing Alisha had ever done, but it was necessary. She still hadn’t made the decision to sell or keep it – it held memories. Some she’d gladly give up, others that she held onto tightly. But before that decision could be made, the cabin had to be made livable, and that meant dealing with the water lines that were cracked and leaking. Fortunately help was on the way in the form of the newly, renovated and still under construction resort on the other side of the lake. One of their handymen, a plumber would be making the trip over to help. Neither Alisha or Nate knew that this meeting was about to change their lives.
Redeeming Her Montana Love has so many emotional layers to it. Two people who are holding such heartbreaking secrets close to their souls have to make the decision to finally let go and trust someone else. And that’s not easy to do at all.
Alisha and Nate’s romance is a slow burning, leisurely journey from where they were to where they could be… if they took the risk. Their story is engaging and brings to light many things that people keep hidden. Some huge, others important if not life changing. Guilt is a hideous snake that can wrap itself around our emotions and slowly kill the good within. This is something they both need to learn to live with, accept and forgive themselves.
I enjoyed their journey very much. Again, like in the first story, we don’t get too much interaction with the new resort, but we do meet a few key players and that part of the series is developing slowly… almost like life, one week at a time. I would recommend this story and series to any Romance reader who enjoys going a bit deeper into the emotions behind characters decisions and why they are… as they are, at first. A solid romance with a few twists that make it interesting and encouraging along the way.
