Nanee's Review of Montana Maverick by Debra Salonen
Be careful what you wish for-
Meg Zabrinski, successful scientist, well-known environmental advocate, and tenured professor is as independent as they come in Montana. She doesn’t need a man in her life, but she does want to have a baby. She retreats to her isolated mountain cabin to write and ponder her future when Henry Firestone–an old rival and former secret crush from her distant past–drops out of the sky on Christmas Eve with three young children and a baby. Meg doesn’t believe in cosmic signs, but even she realizes she’d be crazy not to consider all her options.
The sparks that have always smoldered between them ignite a mutual passion, but when Henry Firestone makes it clear he’s done having children, Meg is forced to accept that falling in love with Henry and his ready-made family would require her to abandon her dream. Can this “Lone Wolf” assimilate into a new pack, or is this Big Sky Maverick meant to be alone?
Wow! I loved every minute of this book. I loved Hank or Henry depending on who is saying his name, I felt for him and his loss. I was Awe'd with his love and determination to support his family. I loved Meg too, she's a given, a smart as hell women and amazing inside and out. The kids were great too especially J.J. He's a sweet and spunky kid who just wants his family to be together. I love how the Zabrinski family rallies around each other and give great support. This book grabs you and doesn't let you go. The author nailed the emotions and love perfectly. Great story. 5 stars
