The Book Junkie Reads . . .
Contradictions from the previous reads. Grandma from book one has now become aunt. Tyler's eyes are open and then Abigail ' losses something that makes her, her. Still confused as to why people don't like Abby.

Narration just fine with the array of males voices.

This is book 3 in the Holiday, Montana series. It's about Tyler Cooper and Abigail Clarke. I recommend you read the first 2 books in the series so you understand some of the back story between Tyler and Abigail. It will definitely make a little more sense if you do. That being said, Tyler is the town sheriff who is a jerk to Abigail although we don't really know why. Abigail is the sweet friend who has watched her friends find their loves and just wants to find her own. She had hoped it would be ...more

This was the book I was most waiting for!! I liked Abby in the first two books so I was thrilled to read a book all about her. I fell in love with Tyler in the first two books but absolutely adored him in this book! The angst and what they had to go through was scary but really helped with the development of the story and characters! I am enjoying reading about the changing Cooper family.

I was waiting for the Cupid story this was a cute story about Cupid I never expected that Abigail would become something special too. I enjoyed reading about a cupid who didn't actually want the job but who was the best person for the job. This was an interesting series and I liked the concept of the series.

This was cute, and sassy, and sad, and sexy. This time Cupid strikes in Holiday, but before he can get his HEA, he has to overcome the embarrassment of pink wings, a curse, an evil anti Cupid, and help his true love cope with becoming a harpy. Lots of laughter, sexy scenes, and sweet romance.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. I freely leave this honest review. While the beginning is a little sad it rebounds fast to sexy, hot and quirky. The pink wings gave me a giggle and the bad guy with not pink wings the creeps. This is a fun read.

Tyler and Abigal are my favorite so far in this series! I loved everything about their story. Can't wait for the next book!
Tyler Cooper is the town sheriff of Holiday, Montana and he’s also a cupid. Yes, that kind of cupid. Tyler has known since he was a kid that it was his destiny to become one and now that destiny has been fulfilled. His bow and arrows come with a warning: only his true love can see them and he shouldn’t prick himself with the arrows or he’ll become obsessed with finding his true love.

FINDING ABIGAIL is a good small town romance with fun paranormal elements. Series fans will love this story and new readers should find it enjoyable as well.

Town sheriff Tyler knew he would one day be called upon to fulfill his Cupid duties but an enemy kept him from seeing frumpy Abigail as his true love. Now Abigail is tired of waiting for Tyler to love her and she's leaving town. Tyler will have to convince Abigail of his love while battling his nemesis.

I love an imperfect heroine like Abigai

I fell in love with the series with "Charmed Spirits" and I continue to be in love with "Finding Abigail". The Cooper brothers continue to be themselves (smart, sexy, sarcastic, sexy, supporting, sexy, etc.) and the town continues to be magical!

The "Holiday, Montana" series brings us the holiday of Valentine's Day! With our very own Cupid or rather, similar to "Santa's Executive", Tyler is Cupid's Executive. Yummy Tyler! Sheriff of Holiday, Montana. He is the one that 'won't commit' to a single

In Finding Abigail, Tyler Cooper has a blind spot when it comes to Abigail, he just really doesn't see her at all. So Abby is giving up especially after five rejections from other men, she is moving to Denver and starting over.
Tyler Cooper is cupid. He helps people realize they could love and have a relationship with the other person but are being stubborn or scared. He also has one true love himself, one person who he could love and able to see his bow, arrows and quiver.And Abby is his one tr

Finding Abigail has to be my favorite book so far in the Holiday Montana Series (well we haven't got to Jackson’s book yet, but so far out of the three this is my favorite). I really like Tyler. He is all stuffy and hates love. Blah, blah, blah Poor guy. Love is about to become his new job.

I will be completely up front before I even start this review. I don't read paranormal. Ever. Nor do I ever have a desire to. That being said, my typical lack of interest in paranormal aside I actually really enjoyed this book. I don't have any interest in paranormal because to think about it, it just seems far fetched and too "make believe" for me. I prefer a story that I feel could actually happen.

Despite the summary I wasn't expecting this story to contain paranormal aspects, but once I reali

I had the honor of being able to read Finding Abigail early and I have to say this was one fantastic book. I really enjoyed the normal mixed with the supernatural. Reading Tyler and Abigail's story made me laugh out loud, cheer out loud and boy the love scenes were as hot as ever! There are so many facets to thier story I was glued to the pages and finished this book in just two days. Enjoy! I think I will be reading this again!

Some of my favorite quotes from the story!

Dude this is pretty cool.

After reading the first 2 books in the Holiday, Montana series by Carrie Ann I was looking forward to Finding Abigail. I wasn't disappointed, I loved it!!

Featuring the sheriff of the town, Ty Cooper and school teacher Abigail Clarke, this is Cupid's story.

In the previous books Ty's attitude towards Abby really annoyed me. In this book you find out why he behaved as he did - though at first, I still couldn't find it in me to not be peeved at him still!!

Fab story, bit of a twist and turn and a bad

My Review for Finding Abigail, Author Carrie Ann Ryan....

First let me say I am a huge fan of Carrie Ann Ryan, when I first found her it was because of her red wood pack series so I was a little reserved when I first picked up this book. But Finding Abigail was one of the best books I have read. The story pulls you in and your riding the great emotional roller coaster along with the characters. I loved this book and it will be one I got back to reread time and time again! And I cant not wait for

I didn't realize I grabbed book 3 in the series. However the way the book is written, it gives enough info to get quickly up to speed.

It's called Holiday, Montana for a good reason. It s a paranormal story, but not at all what you would expect. There seems to be a saturation of "holiday' related characters. This one is about a Cupid and will have you laughing, shaking your head and occasionally tearing up a bit.

The book reads very fast, you won't want to put it down. I'm now going to grab the o

Carrie Ann Ryan is a genius! I am not a big fan of Cupid but I fell for Tyler Cooper in the previous books and really wanted to know how he was to be redeemed. BTW the cover is spot on. That is exactly how I pictured Tyler. Finding Abigail is the 3rd in a set of holiday stories and those 279 pages go by really fast. I didn’t know what to expect from this book because I really couldn’t see Tyler in a diaper with arrows etc. There are no diapers but there are arrows and hardship and love and well ...more

Finding Abigail

Tyler Cooper is the sheriff of Holiday, Montana and he just happens to be a cupid with pink wings and all.

Abigail is 22 and teaching at the local elementary school but has decided that she needs to leave since her life isn't going anywhere and she is in love with Tyler and he doesn't even see her.

Aeneas is determined to keep them apart since he blames all cupids for his love killing herself. He has interfered in their lives long enough.

This is a cute story about what is in front

I liked that less familiar mythical beasts are explored. We meet a cupid, a harpy and other strange people, who are just that - people. One's even the sheriff.

The small town of Holiday has a name for people turning into mythical beings associated with holidays, so the latest is a cupid for Valentine's Day. I hadn't read any others but the author is clearly having fun with this romance series and being quite original as far as urban fantasy goes.

I'm really conflicted about this book. It had a great premise, but there were quite a few elements of the plot that weren't fully explained. The conflict of the story was mostly non-existant as well. We also don't know how things resolve either, not completely. It could have been a great story, if it had just been fleshed out a bit more, and some of the plot elements more fully resolved. Overall, a decent Valentine's read, but not one of the better books in the series.
Sherriff Tyler, keeping the town of Holiday safe but things aren't the same and quickly changing.
Tyler has known that he will be helping the area by being cupids helper but there is something more that is happening. That has blinded him from seeing his true love. An accidental prick of one his arrow awakens his sight but it may be too late cause Abigail has decided to move on or has she...
Another great story by , even with the inconsistency solid 4.5 stars.

“You are grown, Abby, dear. You’re amazing. I don’t know why you don’t see that.” “But, that’s just it. I do see that. I know I’m amazing and that people should get over the past and see that I’m an adult who likes to dance and not just knit. They need to get over the fact that my parents always fought and don’t even know who I am anymore. They need to know that I’m not the goody-goody they think I am. But that’s not going to happen in a town where everyone knows the exact brand of tampons I use and when I need to buy them.” Jordan curled a lip and shook her head. “That’s just sick. You know, that was one part of small-town living I didn’t miss.” “Yeah, just wait until they make a connection to when you stop buying them. Because believe me, they’re watching to see when you and Matt make a mini Cooper.” She laughed at her own joke, even as Jordan’s eyes widened. “You’re kidding, right? We just got married.” 0 likes
