It’s been a long time since an author has made me laugh so much and for so long. I was immediately drawn in by the antics of Dot and Annabel, sweet coffee shop proprietors who have a knack for brewing up laughs as well as love. Each time they made an appearance I felt guaranteed a giggle due to their mischievous attempts at playing matchmaker for Paisley Sheridan and Josh Lake.
High school acquaintances, Josh and Paisley meet again at a time in their lives where they are both in transition. Paisley has inherited her grandfathers ranch which she plans to turn into a Christian retreat and kid’s camp. Josh having been temporarily suspended from his successful career as an ad agent, finds himself with little money and a lot of time. Together they begin marketing the ranch, hosting birthday parties, sleigh rides, and ice skating events. Strong gives her readers everything they need to envision a wintry Montana wonderland. While the book opens as a light-hearted contemporary romance, she gradually introduces more profound messages about healing emotional scars and discovery our true worth in the eyes of God.
As a new reader, I couldn’t help but notice Strong’s affinity for 2 and 3 word sentences. This tended to create a staccato cadence as I read. Written in the third person point of view, readers are always in tune to what her character’s are thinking. Never was this more apparent than in chapters 22-24 when Josh and Paisley wrestle with major decisions about their futures. Overall, Finding Love in Big Sky, Montana is a heart-warming, and at times hilarious, contemporary romance with nice tie-ins to the Advent season.
