So book number 15 in my Goodreads Reading Challenge is Six Months in Montana by Pamela Kelley.
‘Molly Bishop loves living in Manhattan and managing a boutique luxury hotel. She’s about to be promoted to her dream job of General Manager, the role she’s been striving for her entire career.
There’s only one thing standing in her way.
The will of her childhood friend, Christian Ford’s grandfather. She hasn’t even seen Christian in over ten years, but a recent run-in with his grandfather during a rare visit home, resulted in a new condition to the will. Christian will only inherit the ranch he’s been running and the real estate development business that he has expanded, if he marries Molly and stays married for at least six months.’ (Thanks Amazon!)
So this is a story about meddling family members if ever I saw one! Christian Ford’s grandfather seeks to push Christian into a more settled way of life as he creates a condition within his will, pushing Christian into an arranged marriage in order to inherit the ranch and business that he has worked so hard for. Whilst his grandfather does not expect him to remain married, he does expect him to live as a married man for six months. In addition to this stipulation within his will, Christian’s grandfather is very specific about who his grandson should marry: Molly Bishop. Molly is a young woman with career aspirations in the hotel business. In addition to this, she no longer lives in Beauville, Montana, her hometown. Instead she lives in New York City, which she loves.
Christian and Molly, whom haven’t seen each other in over a decade, must work to find a way to coexist within a marriage that they find themselves part of. This novel follows them as they navigate their way through the situation they find themselves in as they get to know each other all over again and they begin to assess what it is they are both looking for in life.
This is a really enjoyable, light read. As previously mentioned, i’m really enjoying small town American novels at the moment and this is no exception – give it a try!
