Six Months in Montana is quite a popular romance if its 500+ reviews are any indication. Career versus love – the age old question a woman always has to answer is at the center of the book. Some might say it is a question of whether the love is strong enough. But first, let us talk about those magical six months our heroine spends in Montana.
Molly Bishop lives in Manhattan and works in a hotel. She has worked her way up and is now about to be offered the dream job of her life. She was born in Montana but moved to Brooklyn in her teen years. Her mother is back in small town Montana. Molly is surprised to learn that her old neighbor bequeathed her a house. But it comes with strings. Lots of them! She is to marry Christian Ford, her childhood friend, and stay married to him for six months, or Christian will lose everything. Many lives depend on Christian’s company and the work he offers, so Molly is sort of obligated to do the right thing. Fate plays into her hands when her hotel shuts down for renovations, and she can do the six month contract marriage and be back to her dream job.
Molly’s mother and aunt are so excited to have her home. They plan a quick wedding, and soon Molly is living with Christian, braving his snarky housekeeper. They fall into a routine, and their old camaraderie comes back. Things get complicated when love knocks on the door. When six months are over, Molly is torn between love and career. Christian doesn’t want to hold her back. Will they be able to resume their old life as if nothing happened?
Six Months in Montana is a sojourn we all wish we can take in our lives, with or without a convenient marriage. The book is sweet, and the characters fit the mould. There aren’t many surprises plot wise, definitely not to folks who read a lot, but it is a sweet journey. You will love reading about new love between two people who are inherently good, and who like each other. Love is inevitable.
I totally enjoyed reading Six Months in Montana. I know you will too if you have a single romantic thought in your head.
