A Sweet Montana Christmas
by Roxanne Snopek.
Audience/Genre: Contemporary Romance,Christmas.
Publication: November 14th 2014 by Tule Publishing.
Melinda Sweet loved her husband before she learned of his wealth and she loves him still, despite the fact that it’s gone. Unfortunately, while she knows the collapse of his Chicago financial services business had nothing to do with him, he believes otherwise. His upbeat adjustment to their new – and temporary – life on his grandfather’s rundown honey farm is a foil to cover the burden of failure. She wasn’t expecting to throw – in five weeks – the traditional Sweet Christmas Open House, but it’s a good earning opportunity and how hard could it be?

Austin Sweet is determined to make his wife proud of him again. But he also wants to erase the sting of shame he feels from his parents, to whom he owes a debt of gratitude for arranging for this caretaking job. Getting paid to fix up this disaster is better than living in their basement, sure. But what does he know about bees? Or fixing broken plumbing? Or cleaning a chimney?

But when Austin’s grandfather gives him the farm as a Christmas gift, there’s only one response. Accepting the gift will secure a future that will make his wife even more unhappy than he already is. Refusing the gift will finalize the rift between him and his family, but he’d rather lose them than Melinda. Then he discovers she’s spared him the choice. Austin’s not-so-Sweet side rears up as he determines that he’s done trying to make everyone happy. He’ll get his wife back, no matter what. And they’ll decide their future together.

Sigh! It's oh so sweet and loveable! I just want to snuggle up with them. I loved everything about this book! The setting is on a farm with vintage stuff, a bee farmer, newborn goats, canning, second chances, and having human babies, and helpful neighbors, and parents with all the baggage that go with them. Ugh! It is so adorable!

Melinda and Austin Sweet have been through a lot. Living in a big city with high demand jobs can put a strain on anyone. Austin's financial planning company tanked and they lost their home, his job, money, his car. She was left to step up and support them as a labor and delivery nurse (yes, being one myself, I was intrigued). The stress took its toll on them and Melinda, being pregnant and not telling Austin, said they needed a break and went to live with her mom. Her mom encouraged her to go back to him and try again.

Austin is ashamed that he couldn't provide for his family of two. When Melinda shows up at the bee farm his father wants him to restore and sell, Austin is hurt and wants her back so bad. He is so in love with his wife!

They work hard on the farm together. Melinda is making friends too and one being a very pregnant single mother to be. Something happened to Melinda at work before moving here and she is nervous about helping her. When Melinda tells Austin she is pregnant, he just dotes all over her in such a loving way. They struggle but they learn a lot about being married and taking care of each other and making decisions together and money becomes nothing compared to being their own family.

The only thing I had an issue with is labor and delivery stuff. Some of it is not exactly how it goes. But I don't think other people who don't know that world would be bothered by it. So I will just ignore that piece.
