Jul 30, 2018 rated it it was amazing  ·  (Review from the author)
I loved writing the third installment of my sweet-romance, Charity, Montana series for Tule. Set in fall, my favorite season, Wade and Erin have a lot to figure out before Wade has to leave Montana for California. In the meantime, there is equine therapy for the moody teenage half-brother, a harvest festival with hayrides, horses, and a chili cook-off, a secret job, and finally, a very romantic public declaration of Wade's intentions. Think Hallmark!

If you are looking for a sweet, gentle romance to curl up with on a cool fall evening, then look no further. This book has all the feel good elements with likable characters and a believable story line.

Erin and Wade are both nice people. I loved that their relationship moved in a realistic way from first attraction to friendship to more. It all felt very normal and natural. I thought the chili cook-off was a fun element and loved how it brought Wade and his brother closer together. There was a g

SWEET HOME MONTANA (Charity Montana Book 3) by author Lynne Marshall is a September 2018 release by Tule Publishing.

Erin Chase worked as an Equine Therapist at Healing Heart Acres. And in walked Wade Conrad with a sulky teenager. He was in desperate need of the Therapy Center and Erin’s help for his half-brother.

Erin felt attracted to Wade but she had lost trust in relationships after being left at the altar. She kept fighting her attraction. But what she didn’t know was Wade also was attracted

First, can we all just appreciate that cover for a moment?!? love it!

Next, Sweet Home Montana is a cute, sweet, and clean romance with engaging characters and some definite romantic chemistry at play. Erin is adorable – though perhaps her three-year-old niece Rosie has her beat in the cuteness department – and she’s the kind of heroine readers will instinctively want as a friend. She’s the kind of character we root for and immediately feel invested in. Wade is swoony and ‘real’ – meaning, he’s n

Sweet Home Montana is book three from the Charity, Montana series. I enjoyed this sweet story. I felt connected to Erin Chase from the start. I love that she worked at a horse therapy center. What a unique profession! I love it when she was interacting with Wade.

I give Sweet Home Montana four and a half stars. I want to go back and read the other books in the series in the near future.

I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.

3.5 stars!

Lately I have been in a phase of reading sweet romances that take place in a more country environment. There's just something so warm and inviting about those. This one was no exception. You start with that cover of the couple cuddling along the shoreline in their blanket, and you're already feeling warm and fuzzy. And then meeting all of the characters at an equine therapy center just adds to the warmth and beauty of the story that you know is going to come.

Erin is getting over a fail

There is an abundance of scenes in SWEET HOME MONTANA which are stirring because of believable circumstances and appealing characters. Lynne Marshall excels at creating situations that could actually occur in real life, and the events in this story can be moving or induce a big smile. I constantly felt as though I was watching a couple go through convincing highs and lows in their relationship, where feelings are sometimes hidden for the greater good. But as days pass and a timeline grows closer ...more

The power of forgiveness is strong on this return trip to Charity, Montana! With the next in her beloved series, Lynne Marshall brings us the story of two hearts who each have had their share of despair and disappointment in their lives but who both happen to be at a point where they can see that it's time to move past the bitterness to see how bright the future is on the other side. The characters spend time together connecting with his brother, and in turn confide in each other about the past. ...more

A sweet romance!

Erin and Wade are likable characters. Wade, an entrepreneur, is acting as a temporary guardian for the much-younger half-brother he hardly knows, and things aren't going well. On a suggestion from his pastor, he brings Brent to an equine therapy center, where of course he meets Erin. Erin was *this* close to her business degree when a failed relationship threw her life off track. Her boss at the therapy center has been trying to ge

I can really picture this book becoming a movie on the Hallmark channel. There is the pretty, compassionate girl who offers troubled people help and hope through an equestrian therapy program, a handsome man who reluctantly agrees to spend a few months with a younger half-brother he barely knows and a troubled teenager who initially balks at receiving attention from his half-brother.

"Sweet Home Montana (Charity, Montana Book 3)" by Lynne Marshall is a great, clean romance that reminds me of what a romance book is all about. The way the author writes this story it makes you feel like you're part of the community, and these people are friends. Wade Conrad has come home to be a temporary guardian to his 1/2 brother Brent. They do not know each other since Wade's father divorced Wade's Mom and married someone 2 years older than Wade. For therapy they were told about 'Healing He ...more

Beneath the big Montana sky, two unlikely people are brought together by a moody teenager and a home for abused animals. Their connection is almost instantaneous but they live in different worlds (not to mention different states).

Wade is the temporary guardian in charge of his brother—the one he barely he barely knows since he’s found excuses to stay away from home—for a couple months. Erin is stuck in her humiliating experience, stalled in living her life to its full potential.

This is another really good read from Lynne it is the third book in the series but can be read as a standalone. If like me you love a good sweet small-town romance then you will really enjoy Erin and Chase's story it is really well written with good likable characters that just you cannot help but like it was also a lot of fun and had me chuckling at times I really liked this book.

What a sweet read that will warm your heart.

If you're ready to swoon and sigh, pick up Sweet Home Montana.

Wade and Erin were easy to root for and the complications standing their way felt real and believable.
This is my first book by this author, but definitely not my last.

“Sweet Home Montana” is the third book of Lynne Marshall’s series set in Charity, Montana, and is another heartwarming story about romantic love and family bonds. It’s a surprisingly different tale about half brothers taking a step towards bonding, a young man – the hero, Wade - assuming the big brother role and letting go of old grudges in a new family after divorce.

Wade exited the family after his parent’s divorce and now has a ton of work to do in order to gain Brent’s trust and a relationship.

Home is where the heart is

I really enjoyed this story but it stopped too soon! Beautiful setting, good people, a therapy ranch and romance made an enjoyable story come alive. Less repetition of the dilemna causing drama would have been better but characters like Erin/Lucinda and Wade made it work. All three Charity, Montana books have been a pleasure to read.

Sweet Home Montana brings three people together who are each broken in their own ways by life and circumstances. They each have a good chance at happiness individually, as a couple and as part of a larger family. But in order to find that happiness they’ll need to learn to trust, and let go of the past… and that’s not always easy to do. Erin lost her ability to trust when the man she was to marry left her basically at the altar with no explanation. She’s found peace
