Title: The Montana Bride
Author: Jeannie Watt
Series: Marvells of Montana #1
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Length: Short novel
She’s not running anymore…
After a decade away, Jacie Rose has returned with her daughter to Sweetheart to renovate a historic hotel…and to lay some ghosts to rest. She knows she’ll have to confront mistakes she made in the past, but she didn’t expect to be living right next door to the guy she once asked to be her husband.
When Brett Starr was approached ten years ago by Jacie Rose with the wild scheme of marrying her to help her out of a jam, his white knight instincts kicked in and he agreed to be her emergency groom. The only problem was that the bride didn’t show up for the wedding. How’s he supposed to get used to seeing the woman he’s never forgotten every day now that she’s his neighbor?
Determined to provide the secure home life for her daughter that she never had, Jacie is not about to bring a man into her life—even one that she sometimes thinks should have been there all along. But Brett and Jacie soon discover the spark between them is even stronger than before… Now that their paths have crossed again, will they lead them back to the wedding that almost was?

When I started reading this book, I thought it seemed strangely familiar. That’s because it is. Last year I read a series called The Secrets of Cherry Lake, well, it seems that’s been repackaged and renamed for the Starr family. The town of Cherry Lake is now called Sweetheart, and The Secret Bride renamed The Montana Bride.
Everything else about the book, as far as I can recall, has remained the same, and I still stand by my original review. It remains an enjoyable read for the most part, but I wish some indication had been given on NetGalley, because then I could have saved myself the trouble of reading the whole thing, just in case something else had been changed.
Oh, and just as a warning, the second book in this series is a re-release too, but at least that name hasn’t been changed.
The Montana Bride is Out Now.
