Marietta, Montana

There is a wonderful, beautiful fictional town called Marietta, Montana.  Nestled within the shadow of the majestic Copper Mountain lies this ranching community.  Steeped in history, this town has seen outlaws, miners, saloon girls, homesteaders, ranching families and tons of people who are simply looking for that perfect place to set down roots.  This community has grown over the years, now there are as many businesses as ranches, professionals as rodeo stars… still, everyone is looking for that perfect happy ever after.  And truth be told, Marietta does have a very high wedding count… and adding to it all the time.

If you haven’t yet discovered Marietta, Montana and all the great Tule Publishing authors that write in this imprint… then what are you waiting for?  Go check out some of these stories and fall in love with a town, a way of life and the amazing people who live in Marietta, Montana.

To the best of my knowledge the list below is in chronological order of publication dates… earliest to latest.  Some I’ve purchased the individual title, some I’ve purchased a boxed set of several related stories, and others I reviewed through the kindness of the Publisher, Tule Publishing and NetGalley.  Each review post is noted where and how I received that title.  There are a lot of crossover titles, where one book may appear in two or three other related series, I’ve also tried to keep that timeline in the notes as well.

Why do all this?  Because I absolutely love and adore anything remotely related to the Marietta, Montana world.  It’s a place, if it were real, I would go to live in a second.  And maybe I just need to go check out small towns in Montana to find my own paradise.  But by doing this I know that I’ve read everything that this line has to offer… and yes, that is important to me.

I hope you’ll check out Marietta, Montana for yourself if you haven’t yet… I’m betting you’ll be hooked, too.

There is a fun book from the founding authors of Marietta available on Amazon that gives tons of information.  The title is The Book Girl’s Guide to Marietta. (and yes that is an affiliate link)   And, you can go to the Montana Born website and take a look at maps and such about Marietta.  That link is here.

This page is invaluable for giving the cover, title and release dates of the Montana Born imprint.  If you love these books this is a good reference.  Marietta Covers & Release Dates

There once was a series called “The Secrets of Cherry Lake”

At one time there was a series centered around the town of Cherry Lake.  It had several stories within that town which was located close to my beloved Marietta, Montana.  However – at some point in time a decision was made at Tule Publishing to rename the series, rename some of the books and reissue them under the Starrs of Sweetheart, Montana series arch title.  (The  disclaimer, previously released is on Amazon, but you have to read the story blurb to see it at the bottom.)

~~ A bit of a confession — these pages are really a way for me to combine my “TBR List”, “Wish List”, “Oh, I’ve Already Read That” List and “Hmmm, Maybe One Day” Lists.  These pages on all of my blogs help me to keep my reading adventures in an order that makes sense to me… that they are also of benefit to other readers is a wonderful bonus point for us all.  *grin* (Updated links correct as of 8/14/19)

At this point in the list, this page has gone on long enough, and all the series are up-to-date (according to the Tule Publishing/Montana Born website).

So, let’s move on to more current series and start another long page, eventually.  Now it’s time to head on over to:
