Montana Ice is the second book in the Small Town Romance series.

Both are hung up and hurt about their past, but are thrown together in a hilarious journey of redemption, adding in a stalker, a gnome, and ten years of pent up love and lust. When the time c ...more

I am loving this new series by Vanessa Vale. This small Montana town has some funny residents and I am loving them the more I learn about them. This time the book was a second chance romance. The main characters had a past that took their lives in different directions for years. But now, unique circumstances have brought them back together where they have to deal with not only their past but also some unusual happenings in the present.

Small town Montana, nothing could possibly happen there, right? After all it’s a small town, what would? Then weird things start to happen.

Veronica Miller doesn’t really believe in chances, but things are starting to happen that she just isn’t too sure about. Including the strange fact that her first crush, her first love is all of a sudden showing up at her sister’s house while she is in the shower when he hasn’t been back to town in ten years. Jack Reid wasn’t sure about anything, or even real
This book is hilarious! There is absolutely no other word to describe it. I can't remember the last time I laughed so hard when reading a book. Book 2 in the series, it is completely a stand alone. While there a few characters from book 1 that make appearances (including George!) the events are totally new.

Veronica is a small town girl, following her dreams of buying her dad's plumbing company. She's a hard worker, smart, loyal, and friendly. But there is the one that got away.... Jack is a law

I received a free copy of this book from the author.

This is the second book in the Small Town Romance series but you can read it by itself. In Montana Ice we meet Veronica and Jack.  These two were classmates through out school and then Jack moved away for college and remained there.

Jack's uncle called him back home to help with the renovation on his home under false pretenses. Which is quite funny once you read this revelation in the story.  :-)  When he gets there he finds this house uninhabit

Montana Ice proved to me that I can be pleasantly surprised. Vale pulls out all the stops. She proves that small town romance can be both sexy and sweet. She not only breaks down stereotypes, she steals your heart while doing so. Veronica and Jack get a chance to finally explore an attraction interrupted. In a town where everybody knows your name and your business, romance can be the talk of the town faster than these two can even figure it out. Vanessa Vale proves she's more than a little naugh ...more

Jack and Veronica’s story

This was a funny romantic story, with a little bit of danger and who-done-it thrown in to add suspense. Very easy read with likable and relatable characters. It's a super easy read, and I just loved it.

The second story in this new, Small Town Romance series was another page-turner, and yes, it has the sex shop, Goldilocks and the owner, Goldie, in the story. The story has many laughing out loud moments, some angst, anger, misunderstandings, troublemakers, and then throw in identical twin sisters and the pot gets stirred with problems.

Once again, I loved every word of this small town romance. Sucked in from the very beginning, the endearing characters living in Bozeman, Montana are delightful, quirky, and I just can't get enough.

Did I read this while at work?  Maybe...but once I began reading Montana Ice I absolutely hated to put it down.

It's been record breaking temps right now and I didn't need to turn on the fans because I could feel the chill rolling off the pages. Vanessa plucked me up and dropped me off into the frosty

The second book in the Small Town Romance series starts off with a freaking hilarious bang … upside someone’s head!

MONTANA ICE takes two people with past interactions and throws them together in a wild romp that had just as much hilarity and situations as the first book in the series. Veronica Miller is totally awesome. No girly girl here! She is a girl that always knew what she wanted and that was to be a plumber, and Jack Reid.

I truly enjoyed Jack and Veronica's story. Not only did I enjoy the second chance love story but I enjoyed the humor as well. Poor Veronica and Jack learned that a misunderstanding between the two of them (with a third person causing their hurt) caused years of separation and misplaced hatred. I'm really glad that they were able to clear the air and find their HEA but I wish that we could have gotten more of that background story and why the whole situation happened (and please tell me that the ...more

January in Montana has never been hotter!

Veronica lost her high-school crush, Jack, to her twin sister years ago but hasn’t ever really gotten over him. Jack comes back to town ten years later to help his uncle with his remodel project and finds himself crossing paths with Veronica again. At first the circumstances that split them up keep them at each other’s throats, but eventually secrets come out and nothing is as they thought it was.

This beautiful story is so much more than a romance. Veron

Another fun read in this series.

This time we meet Veronica and Jack. They’ve known each other for years, but for the last 10 he’s been out of town. Veronica had a crush on him back then, but after some heartbreak, he left town and Veronica was left to mend her heart.

Anyway, now they have to live together for a few days and things get awkward for a while there. It was fun seeing them trying to live together without rehashing the past. However, they really needed to do that, and boy did it change

Such a fun series!

I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed the first book in the Small Town Romance Series, Montana Fire, so I couldn't wait to get started on Montana Ice. Though some of the same characters from book one make an appearance in this story, you can still enjoy book two. Seriously, though, if you haven't read book one, you're missing out on a really great story. Lots of laughs with a fun story line.

Loved Jack and Veronica’s story! Veronica is a plumber (like her Dad), but she also works part time in the town’s adult toy store! Temporarily, because her own house is being renovated, she is living at her twin sister’s home. In comes Jack, her high school crush (who she thinks rejected her back in high school)… with his back turned, she thinks he’s a burglar, so, she knocks him out!! From there, things get messed up, resolved, tangled up, smoothed out… There are good people, questionable peopl ...more

Great funny addition to the series. I liked how a few characters made repeat appearances especially George. While little girls were planning out their weddings, playing with dolls and having tea parties Veronica was following in her father’s footsteps and wanting to be a plumber. With only one more payment Veronica is going to own her father’s plumbing business. She also works at Goldilocks the adult store run by Goldie and Goldie is a hot mess in the best of ways.

This series is a totally new direction for Vanessa Vale, and I LOVE IT! I'm a huge, longtime fan, and I have read every single book she has written and never been disappointed. When I saw this series, and read the blurb, I decided to give it a shot because that's the kind of fan I am. I am so, so glad I didn't turn my nose up at this one. It is sweet and sexy and has a real honest character to it. It isn't the menage that I'm used to getting from her, but it is almost sweeter because of that. I ...more

Vanessa Vale is back with the second standalone in the Small Town Romance series and much like book one, it was an easy, softer romance with realistic characters and page-turning plots. Montana Ice was another good, solid romance packed with heart, heat, fire, and second chances that left me smiling, swooning, and very much in anticipation of book three.

With each new read, Vale makes me and even bigger fan. I fell in love with this series with the first book and was anxiously waiting for this one. And I was not disappointed. Vale gave me a sweet sexy story, that was not only set your kindle on fire hot but had me laughing out loud as well.
I am a sucker for a good second chance love story and this one had everything I look for. These characters are a hoot! Their crazy antics and the situations they get themselves in had me unable to put the boo

5 STAR Review by Jodi for Ruby Red Romance Review

Hello Veronica and Jack! This story was so amazing. I love Vanessa Vale's stories and Montana Ice is no exception to that. Veronica wants to take over the family business. To do so, she has to breakdown the stereotype that comes with being a woman in a mans world. I love Veronica's whit. She was sharp and had order. Never in her life did she see Jack walking back into it. Jack needed an escape and his uncle was able to provide him one. Never once

When Jack went on a date with Veronica's identical twin while they were in high school, she felt heartbroken and betrayed. Now Jack is back in Bozeman after 10 years away and he's definitely grown into a very sexy man! As a Miami lawyer, Jack thought he was living his dream but now he's second guessing himself.
