Overall Opinion: This was an ok read. I didn't realize that we'd be dealing with the (view spoiler) theme, so that threw me off a little. I wouldn't go so far as to say that I felt that the h was second best (because I didn't), but there was a lot of focus put on what had happened and that character that bothered me a little. I also had issues with the scene with the H and an OW. I'm usually one that will easily push those sort of things aside and not let the

3.5 stars.

This started off with great promise, I loved the blurb and the idea that SHE was the ex con and he was her knight in shining armour. Unfortunately towards the end it all got a bit cheesy which, given she had spent 6 years in jail for murdering a bloke, didn't really work with the whole theme.

Nothing puts me off more than the whole "Maddy you are an amazing person blah blah blah" speech, in fact it makes me cringe almost as much as when the bloke gets on bended knee to propose. And yep

‘Both of us had alluded to cracks in our lives that if explored too far might split wide open, leaving us raw and exposed. I had a feeling we’d end up either completely breaking each other or filling in the cracks. The question was, could we do one without the other?’

Yesterday’s Tomorrows is the first book I have read by M.E. Montgomery and it definitely will not be my last. From the prologue to the epilogue, I was invested in this story. It is about honesty, heartache, healing, forgiveness, trust, and learning to love again. It is a beautiful love story with an added element of suspense that made this story a well-rounded read.

Madelyn Stone grew up on the wrong side of the tracks and came from a broken family. Just when she thought things were looking up fo

Five stars is not enough to rate this book. I am still reeling from the emotions I felt while reading this. I feel as though someone has delved into my soul and put it on paper. I do not personally know M. E. Montgomery but I feel as if she has known me my whole life. From the first page to the last, I was sucked in and refused to stop reading.

It's hard to read a book that hits on so many levels, to feel so exposed by someone else's words and I don't think I have ever related to a character lik

The prologue to this story had me riveted. The questions of what the hek is happening and why rolling through my mind. It instantly addicted me.

This is truly a unique and beautiful story. So many emotions and feelings are wrapped up in this roller coaster. Trying to put it into words is proving difficult. Shame I can't just say "you need this book in your life" as my review.

I started reading this and couldn't put it down, great story. Madelyn Stone has had a rough life and at 24 she has been through more than people twice her age. She was raised on the wrong side of the tracks by an alcoholic father who eventually abandoned her and her sister, Charly. While trying desperately to get a scholarship and get away from her small town Maddy gets caught up in something that changes her life forever. And just when she needed her sister the most, Charly abandons her too.

Mmmmm where to start with this gorgeous book about two broken people who don’t think they need fixing at all but clearly do. I was just willing them to get their act together as you can see from the beginning that they should be together but I’m not spoiling the book by telling you either way.
Maddy Stone was left shattered when she was left to serve a jail sentence for a crime that was born out of love and protection for the family that betrayed her. 6 years later and she has no family and trus

I first discovered M.E. Montgomery a few months ago. Having fallen in love with her Polaris Series, I couldn't wait to dive into Yesterday's Tomorrow's. She completely blew me away with this story. This book delivers it all, suspense, loss, pain, romance and hope. It begins with Maddy's release from prison. She's paid a debt she didn't deserve to pay. I absolutely adored Maddy. She has to be one of my favorite heroine's ever. No matter the obstacles before her she remains strong and positive. Li ...more

What a book! I'm still having a hangover from it and it's been 2 days since I read it. Ahhhh it's so good. It's a different storyline then I've ever read and what a storyline it is.

Maddy and Holt take us on a rollercoaster of emotions. Maddy is starting over so to say and Holt Andrews was the only one to help her on her first day out. What he wasn't expecting was for Maddy, a newly released felon to stir something inside of him that had been closed off for around 5 years. He tries to push the f

Everyone deserves a second chance stars

I was totally swept away with Maddy's story, her back story was heartfelt and her ability to push her shoulders back and move on was heartwarming.

Holt's own backstory was also heartbreaking and heartwarming. You could say both Maddy and Holt have found their perfect match and stars aligned at the right time.

M.E Montgomery has written a beautiful and moving story that captivates the heart and
imagination.

Holt is a man who is finding it difficult and not

I have lately been interested in wrongful convictions and abuses of the justice system – I blame Serial and all the other podcasts I’ve listened to since.

Maddy is just getting out of prison for a crime she did commit, but with good reason. She has kept her nose to the grindstone and been a model inmate while she’s been in prison. So she was released early on good behavior. She is ready to get on with her life and forget her past.

Holt was sent by Maddy’s lawyer, who is also a partner in the law

Yesterday's Tomorrow is ME Montgomery's newest novel (and the first I've read from her). I LOVED this book.

Maddy was dealt a crap hand in life. From the death of her mother, to her craptastic father, to her no good sister. She had a grandmother that adored her but old age got the best of her and Maddy was left alone (for all intents and purposes) again. Poor decisions lead to Maddy spending 6 years of her life in jail.

The book starts with Maddy getting out of prison and beginning a new work pla

Another home run from Mrs. Montgomery! I loved this book. It kept me wanting more from beginning to end. There were moments I wanted to cry, moments I wanted to scream, moments I DID gasp from anxiety and fear, and moments of complete bliss.

Maddy is an extraordinary character. She found herself having to start all over after a terrible tragedy. Holt is there from the time she steps out of the prison gates. He's amazing! They both brought out the best in each other! Holt has a way of getting to

This is definitely a favorite of mine from this author! How many times in your life do you think the universe is just out to get you? Nothing ever goes the way it should be.
Maybe one day it suddenly turns on a dime, all the bad luck from before is now gone.
I'd like to think this story of a chance to start over, will sink down deep with lots of readers for sure.
Madelyn hasn't had the greatest upbringing, she has some hard things to let go of. Holten is a man with a chip on his shoulder.

This is my first book by this author but it definitely won't be my last. This is a beautifully written story about second chances.
When Maddie is sent to prison for committing a crime to help a loved one she is left feeling alone. Upon her release she is given a second chance to start over.
Holt lost the love of his life five years ago. Not being able to open himself up to anyone he uses women to satisfy needs, never opening his heart to them. Then he meets Mattie and he slo

I couldn't put this book down. As soon I as started the first page I was hooked. M.E. Montgomery you've done it again.

I'm not going to go through the same spill you can read on all of the wonderful reviews that are on this page.

Just know you will not be disappointed when you grab this one. I'm really giving this book 10 stars you just can't see it.

Loved, loved, loved this story!!

I fell in love with Holt and Maddy and had to break out the tissues a couple of times.
It has tragedy, it has love, and it left me with feelings.

This is my first book by M.E. Montgomery and it definitely will not be the last. If you haven't read anything by M.E. Montgomery, what are you waiting for?!

The prologue to this book reeled me in and the story never let me go. Where there times I sort of rolled my eyes? Sure, but all in all those were few and far between. Holt and Maddy are engaging characters, Holt's family is one you wish you were part of, and their story is both tragic and sweet.

Both Holt and Maddy are broken. Both have suffered immeasurable tragedy. Both are unaware of just how broken they are. Each handles their tragedy in different ways. You don't get the full story on either

I loved it. Both were fantastic characters. Maddy has been through a lot and it was great to see her overcome her circumstances and become successful and confident. Holt was amazing and I love his devotion and loyalty to Maddy despite his own reservations and haunted past. I love them as a couple and how they got through their obstacles together. M.E. Montgomery does not disappoint and have loved all of their books so far.

The perfect book to read curled up on a snowy day. It was beautiful and I absolutely loved it. It had me hooked from the very beginning and kept me hooked to the very end. Then in between was just as perfect. I loved the characters. Maddy was he perfect. Holt was perfect. It was all just so beautiful. So glad I read this story.
