Investigative reporter Gemma Wade has been dispatched to her own personal purgatory—small town Marietta, Montana—to write a fluffy, romantic piece about the unprecedented spike in marriages there. Being punished for an embarrassing career misstep is bad enough, but it’s probably karma that she also stumbles upon Mr. Right in the absolute wrong place.

Road To You by Barbara Ankrum is the second book in the contemporary romance Band of Brothers series. As with most books of this genre this one features a new couple coming together so it reads rather well as a standalone if choosing to do so.

This story is set in my favorite small town of Marietta, Mt where Gemma Wade and Noah Mathis have crossed paths. Gemma is a reporter that after a bit of a mess up in her last assignment her boss has sent her to Marietta to do a fluff piece on weddings. Than

Hero, Noah Mathis, is ex-navy SEAL attending the wedding of one of his fellow SEAL brothers at a quaint little Montana town called Marietta. Journalist Gemma Wade has been sent to Marietta to write a piece about the township's disproportionate number of weddings compared to residents. Gemma screwed up her last investigative report and recognises this assignment as her both a punishment and her last chance to retain her job. She didn't count on falling victim to the potent, amorous enchantment of ...more

It was cute and short read. A bit cheesy sometimes, but very low angst.
The H was rich and he wasn't a ManWhore. Surprise, right?

I absolutely loved this book. This is my first read from the author and won't be the last. The book is set in the town of Marietta Montana, which is a draw for me having read other books based in this beautiful small town where love is somehow always in the air. This book had a different twist making all the more enjoyable for me.
Gemma is a reporter based at a paper in Seattle, who has more than her share of current problems, mainly her job and thanks to a bad source on an article she wrote and

Oh WOW a Marietta, Montana book that has a different take and a different grouping of characters. Many of these we had met before in the first book of the Band of Brothers but it's okay if you missed that book (but i highly recommend reading it later), Author Barbara Ankrum catches you up right nicely. In this book we get to know more about the most secretive of the brother Noah. We get to see his other life and what goes on when he not around everyone else. Why he is not around the group more a ...more

This is a cute book about things backfiring from the get go. Gemma Wade is in Marietta, sent there by her newspaper after a story she wrote goes way south. Now, she is stuck in the personal interest column, writing about the epidemic of weddings and lasting love that has taken over the small Montana town.
Noah Mathis is in town for the wedding of a close armed forces buddy. He is also taking a break from his high profile family job and definitely not ever wanting any press about his life. Ba-bam!

Loved this book of two people, who are not telling each other the whole truth. Gemma and Noah, both are hiding their true identity from each other and friends. Gemma has arrived in Marietta to cover all of the weddings that have taken place and Noah is there for a wedding of one his "brothers". There is an instant connection between the two, but will it last longer the weekend with their secrets.

This book takes place in Marietta Montana and oh how I love to read a story that takes place there, heck I almost want to move there.
This book has a great plot line except it keep me on edge to much of the book, worried Gemma would make a mistake for the sake of her writing career, then just when I was breathing easier I had to worry what her ex was up to.
Can’t wait for the next book in the series as the true friendship of the band of brothers gets right to your heart.

A pleasant, if predictable, story about two meet and are drawn to each other even though they are both hiding major details about themselves. I have read one other book by this author and liked it so I was eager to give another book by her a try.

I love returning to Marietta, Montana – my favorite fictional small town of all time. Although this time, Road to You is going to give us a slightly different slant, and a different set of secondary characters. But that’s fine. All the known and loved landmarks of Marietta are still firmly in place.

Road to You is full of secrets, information not revealed when the opportunity was there, a slimy ex that makes you question Gemma’s taste in men prior to Noah and a conclu

Even his brothers don’t know about his secrets. Gemma Wade, a journalist for a Seattle newspaper is in Marietta to write a fluffy, romantic piece about the unusual increases in marriages there.

This is the story of Noah and Gemma. Gemma is a journalist, whose career is going down fast. Not only was she left waiting in the aisle by her fiancé who cheated on her, but when the sources of her last article withdrew she found herself exposed and her job threaten. Her boss gave her a second chance asking her to write a piece for Marietta, a place where romance was exploding and there was a boom in marriages.

Road to You by Barbara Ankrum is a visit back to Marietta, Montana one of my favorites book places. However, for Gemma Wade, an investigative reporter, is like a trip to reporter time-out. Noah Mathis, too, is in town for just a short time to attend a wedding.

Second book in the Band of Brothers series, this reads well as a stand-alone. Yes, Noah is in town for the wedding but it is not necessary to have read the first book to enjoy this one. It is a pleasant read. I am not always happy with Gem

I sometimes wonder if I go overboard with five star reviews, but really if I absolutely loved a book then why wouldn’t I give it five stars? That’s certainly the case with Road To You, the second story in Barbara Ankrum’s Band of Brothers series. I have loved this story every bit as much as I loved the first book, A Little Christmas Magic. These stories work beautifully together, but also stand alone nicely.
Guilt plays a huge role in this emotional and at times heart-rending love story of two pe

An enjoyable and well-written romance, this book had plenty of humour, but it also dealt with the pain of betrayal, taking the fall for someone else and dealing with past mistakes. Being sent off to write a “fluff piece” on the unprecedented marriages taking place in small town Marietta, Gemma is licking her wounds after discovering that her nemesis is once more twisting the proverbial knife in her back. Only Gemma literally falls at Noah's feet and the love bug bites once again. Whilst Gemma is ...more

I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I loved that there was a hint of suspense in this romance. This book is the story of Gemma, a journalist who has been treated badly by her ex-fiancé, Ash, both in her relationship and at the paper they work for. Ash managed to ruin her last big story so her boss sends her to Marietta Montana to write a fluff piece on the weddings there and romance. Upon her arrival Gemma meets Noah who is in town for friends’ wedding. They hit ...more

Gemma Wade is a reporter from Seattle that was sent to Montana to do a story on why there is so many weddings there. Noah Mathis is taking a quick escape from his life to go to an Ex-Navy SEAL buddy's wedding. Of course they meet right of the bat when they both get into Marietta. They both have secrets. The story gets more interesting from there but you have to read it yourself because if I write too much more than I will give stuff away.
It was a cute short easy read.

This was a very enjoyable. It had a unique and interesting storyline, a nice easy pace to the story, excellent writing and intriguing characters. All this combined to make a great read. While this is the second in a series it is easily read standalone.

In this story we have Gemma Wade who after getting into a bit of hot water with her boss has found herself in Marietta seeking a story on why there seems to be so much love in the air. While there she meets Noah Mathis at a wedding. They hit it off

Gemma, big-time news journalist meets Noah, ex-Navy Seal in a contempory (western) romance.
This book is the story of two people who meet and hide their true selves. This story takes place on neutral ground, in a small town in Montana. Noah is going to a friend's wedding and Gemma is on assignment, writing about love! Both end up wishing that they had been honest from the beginning.
Cute and flirty characters with a great setting in Montana.

I am giving an honest review of this ARC that I received from NetGalley.

I truly enjoy reading books that are based out of Marietta, Montana. I have already read the previous book in this series and enjoyed that one as well. It was nice reading about characters that I had met in previous books.

I enjoyed reading about Gemma and Noah and found myself eager to get to the main conflict in the story to see how it was going to be handled by the characters. Barbara Ankrum did not disappoint her reader

Very engaging writing, likable characters and a story that was hard to put down. Ms Ankrum introduced me to believable characters that I was concerned about; the ones I liked and those I didn't. The way she wrote human
feelings- hurt, mistrust, fear, and longing felt real. The plot, climax, and the resolutions were consistent with the story. I have found an author to follow. Exceptional read.

Secrets and Romance… Gemma has been demoted to writing a fluff piece on the wedding upswing in Marietta Montana. Soon Gemma is almost falling at the feet of Noah, who is town for a wedding. Gemma doesn't disclose that she is a reporter and Noah includes her in his friend's wedding festivities. Gemma stumbles upon Noah's secret and now has to decide what she will do with it. This was a very good story and a mainly sweet whirlwind romance. There is a little steam in the book. I liked this book ver ...more
