Trying to get over a broken heart, twenty-four year old teacher Jet Diekerhof takes a gap year to travel and have an adventure. Her practical farming family is horrified until Jet’s older sister Harley gets her a long term sub position at a one room school house in Montana’s Paradise Valley. Jet’s grateful it’s 775 miles from her overly involved family—and the guy who broke her heart. She’s also sworn off men until meeting darkly handsome Shane Swan changes everything…
Thirty-four year old Shane Swan has been an outsider since birth. Raised by his maternal grandmother near Flathead Lake, Montana, until her death when he was four, meant he ended up in foster care. But ever smart, determined, and ambitious, Shane has become one of the most successful writers in America. Yet none of his success has answered the burning question: why was he the one given away, and his brothers kept? Now Shane has moved to Marietta to unravel the secrets and lies and what it means to be a Sheenan, and nobody is closer to the Sheenans than Brock’s young sister-in-law, Jet.
Normally Shane would never use a woman, but if Jet can connect him with the keys to his past, he doesn’t seem to have choice. Until he begins to fall for her. Can two strangers, who were never meant to be, believe in love again?
Read on for my thoughts on The Lost Sheenon’s Bride. No true spoilers, promise.
If you’ve read the Taming of the Sheenans series. or really any of the Marietta, Montana books, you know that the Sheenan family is full of pride, stubbornness and loyalty to the family. They are a tight knit force to be reckoned with. And I have loved and completely enjoyed each and every story along the way to this one – the final Sheenan story. Oh, maybe-hopefully, we’ll get a holiday reunion story one day and catch up on the family. Heck, maybe someday we’ll read about their kid’s romances. But for now this is it.
And I have to say with utter honesty and heartfelt thanks to Ms Porter – Thank you. You’ve saved the absolute best for last.
Jet and Shane’s love story is beautiful and touching. But they aren’t the true focus of this story. Family is. Finding out the truth is. Making things right is.
If you can read The Lost Sheenan’s Bride without crying then you, my friend, are a much stronger person than I am. And that’s all I’m going to say.
If you’ve followed the series, then you need to experience this totally for yourself. You don’t need my words, you need their story.
