I'll say right up front that Roxanne Rustand is a dear friend. But as always if I don't enjoy a book by a friend, I just don't review it. Not every book is for every reader--even those by a friend. But this book was for me. And it was quintessential Roxanne Rustand. A book set on a Western ranch with lively characters that nearly leap off the page. Roxanne delights in creating a family of great characters with sometimes harsh backstories. As usual, by the time the couple wakes up to the fact tha ...more

First book in a new series by Roxanne Rustand and it looks like it's going to be cowboy centered! Yeehaw! Jess makes a great first Rocky Mountain Ranch hero. There's something about a cowboy who opens his heart and home to abandoned twins and the man is completely smitten. There's nothing he won't do for those little sweethearts even if it means hiring the woman who stomped all over his heart and left it in smithereens twelve years ago. He still hasn't picked up all the pieces. But Abby is the o ...more

What a sweet story of second chances! Montana Mistletoe was packed full of interesting characters, from the twin girls who didn’t know if they could trust their new housekeeper, to Jess and Abby who were former sweethearts with a bad breakup in their past, and quite a few other characters to round out the story.

I enjoyed the Montana ranch setting and the Thanksgiving and Christmas traditions that made this story a great way to prepare for both of these upcoming holidays. The romance was sweet an

Montana Mistletoe

This was such an special story. This is one of those books that I just felt so close to the characters. They became like family to me. I loved the twin girls so much. They are five years old and quite an pair. Jess unexpectedly finds himself raising the two young sweet girls. He also busy on his ranch with the cattle.

Abby is being hired to help with the girls. She grew up in the area. Actually part of the story involves her and her dad. They had some things to work out. I love

This was my first story I've read by Roxanne Rustand and I have to say I'll be looking for more! I loved this story of Jess Langford a rancher who has taken in twin girls Sophie & Bella who can be quite the handful for a ranch owner who has no other help because his grandmother had to have surgery. Jess's ex Abby ends up working for Jess helping with the girls and the house work and keeping grandma Betty from over doing it...
This story is heartwarming and more realistic than some I have read, i

There was a lot going on. Could have definitely did without the ranch hand and ex drama.

Well, this one was a miss for me, it was really tough to get through and I found by the halfway mark I stopped caring about the characters or how things would wrap up. I found this story a little too “instalovey” for my taste. I know this is a love inspired romance and they can be a little on the instalovey side, but the timing seemed a little off. It’s was as if the romance was happening in the wrong moments. Some of the events that happened seemed obsolete and had me cringing. I

Montana Mistletoe by Roxanne Rustand. Jess Langford and Abby Halliwell were an item 12 years ago. Abby left town and ended up marrying someone else. Now she is back in town. Her marriage is over. Jess is looking for a housekeeper and nanny for his 5 year old twin nieces. His grandmother was taking care of everything but she fell and hurt herself and not able to care for them now. Abby takes the job. A romantic story.
