Corporate analyst, Ivy Bishop, intends spending Christmas holed up in an isolated Montana ranch house with only an abandoned puppy for company. When the festive season ends her broken heart might just have had just enough time to heal.
Ex-rodeo rider, Rhett Dixon, has put his playing days behind him. He has something to prove. Despite being the first son in three generations of ranchers, he is determined to succeed in ranching on his own merits.
But when Rhett’s new neighbor proves to be far-too-pretty and far-too-compassionate, his single-minded focus deserts him. And the more time Ivy spends with the workaholic, blue-eyed cowboy next door the more she realizes her heart isn’t actually broken – yet
Oh my, I'm starting to think, Marietta, Montana is the place to be over Christmas time.
Another charming, Christmas story with cowboys, puppies, baking and Marietta Christmas stroll to be enjoyed. It is a really delightful and adorable story of ancestors, heritage, community, Christmas spirit, romance and love.
Both Ivy and Rhett are healing from lost of parental figures. They have a lot of resistance towards a (new) relationship, and are fighting against the attraction and the pull they feel for each other. Their love story is kept rather clean, and is inspiring.
Just another heartfelt tale of love conquering it all ~ Four spoons!
