Mistletoe Wedding by Melissa McClone is book two in the Montana Born Christmas series. I love life at the Bar V5 ranch near Marietta, Montana. Even though I am a warm weather girl, Melissa makes life at this ranch seem so magical, no matter what time of year. But Christmas at the ranch…what could be more magical, especially for a six year old girl named Brooklyn.

Well, if I hadn’t been in love with Marietta & the Bar V5 before, I certainly am now! McClone brings us back to Montana in a big way that will leave you primed for Christmas and smiling at the romance she dangles before you. I enjoyed the romance that wasn’t sappy, and the upbeat outlook on life that this town gives you, even if it isn’t always a bed of roses. This is all wrapped up in McClone’s fantastically illustrative writing and breathtaking narrative.

I love how McClone incorporates bot

I'm always a sucker for holiday romances, and this was such a sweet story. Meg and Ty both fight their attraction for different reasons, but that attraction is definitely there. Then there's Meg's daughter, Brooklyn. She's absolutely adorable, and she steals all the scenes that she's in. At times she sounds much older than her 6 years, but she is precious.

I love the ranch setting especially for a holiday romance. Melissa really brings the setting to life. You can picture all the lights on the ba
I enjoyed my trip to Marietta, Montana and learning about Ty, Meg and Brooklyn. Two people that don't want any relationships or entanglements seem to be drawn to each other like metal to a magnet. Meg was recently hired at the Bar V5 Ranch as an event coordinator. She and her precocious 6-year-old daughter, Brooklyn, soon settle into life on the ranch. Brooklyn is Meg's main focus and she doesn't want to introduce men (a.k.a. dating) into their lives, with the chance that it could negatively ...more
I received this book as an e-ARC free from Netgalley. Below is my review.

I'm a fan of the Montana Born series of books so it was a no-brainer to pick up this book from Netgalley. I enjoyed it. It's like that snow you get on a day hovering right around 32F; it looks pretty coming down, hovers a bit on the ground, and then it's gone. Pretty but forgettable. It has its sweet moments, its "oh gosh!" moments, and its requisite happy ending.

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. This was the first book I've read by author Melissa McClone but it certainly won't be my last. The holidays in Montana provide the perfect backdrop for starting over for Meg and her daughter, Brooklyn. Determined to prove herself on the ranch means butting heads with Ty, the ranch foreman and confirmed bachelor. Sometimes, however, what we think we want and what we truly need can be entirely different...and wonderful...magical ...more

This was a warm and happy Christmas read. They might be fighting it, but you know from the start that the chemistry between Ty and Meg was going to bring them a happily ever after. I liked Ty's growing affection for Meg;s daughter Brooklyn as well. This was a sweet cozy novella, perfect for holiday reading.

I received an ARC from NetGalley for an honest review.

In Mistletoe Wedding we go back to the Bar V5 dude ranch in Montana (Home For Christmas and Kiss Me, Cowboy )

I read Mistletoe Magic first so I get to see and feel Melissa McClone's writing and I liked it. She actually got me sighing and grinning and dreaming of Christmas as early as October. And that's where I first met fiances Noah & Caitlin who were about to get married in this Copper Mountain Christmas series.

This time, Mistletoe Wedding introduces Meg Redstone, a newly hired event planner at the Bar V5 Dude Ranch. She's a single mom to a a beautiful daughter, Brooklyn, who was really as cute a

I am loving these Montana Born Christmas books, I can’t wait for Christmas, and these books are making me cold. As in winter cold. But warm all over with how the stories written.

I enjoyed the book that I first read Bar V5 Ranch in which Tyler is part owner. However, I loved this story, Mistletoe Wedding. When Zach in Kiss Me, Cowboy stated that he and Tyler were confirmed bachelors I knew Zach eat going to eat those words. I just didn’t see the foreshadowing going on for this story. I should have though.

While Tyler was a minor character in the last book, he comes alive in this one thanks to Melissa McClone’s thorough character development. I couldn’t wait for his well-

Christmas wishes do come true.

This is a lovely Christmas story written with much attention to detail. When the author describes the decorations and the location you are able to close your eyes and see the splendor of the season.
The story is about two young people who both have had a hard time at a young age. Ty was cast in the role of guardian of a little sister when his parents both died in an accident. He spent his early years raising her. Meg married a man at a young age. Friends and

She is someone I could definitely be friends with in real life. I really appreciated how honest Ty was with Meg in regards to not wanting a family. But then again,
