Paisley Sheridan needs a little help getting the ranch she inherited fixed up to be a camp and retreat center. She doesn't count on that help coming in the form of Josh Lake who broke her heart in high school. Will she be able to keep her heart sealed until he goes away again?
Josh Lake doesn't expect to run into Paisley Sheridan at a coffee house in Montana. He is embarrassed to admit he doesn't have any money and works out a trade with her for his room and board at her ranch. The longer he is there, the less sure he is of what he wants in life. Will he be able to find a treasure this Christmas more valuable than all the possessions he had?
"Finding Love in Big Sky, Montana" is the 2nd book in the "Resort to Love" series by Angela Ruth Strong. The main characters from the first book show up in this book, but it's more of a cameo appearance so this book could be read as a standalone. (But I say, "You want to read the first one because it's really good, too!" **and at the time of my review, it is free for Kindle**) Paisley and Josh were very easy to relate with. I didn't totally understand some of their reasoning at first, but as the book progressed, I came to understand why they felt and acted the way that they did. Dot and Annabel were hilarious and added just the right amount of humor into the story. I liked getting to know Sam Lake a little better, too, and am impatiently waiting for his story. I liked the way that the author worked the star theme throughout the book and weaved in Bible truths in a smooth and easy manner. I laughed, I cried, I wanted to shake some of the characters... I had to force myself to put the book down to do things like make food, clean, sleep. I could easily see this as a made for TV movie. The scenery was beautiful and the characters believable.
