A Hometown Proposal by CJ Carmichael
The Shannon Sisters, Book 3
Tule Publishing (January 26, 2020)
Contemporary Romance/Western Romance
She’s looking for a second chance to reconnect with her daughter but finds so much more.
Since her husband’s climbing death a year ago, Maureen Shannon’s relationship with her twelve-year-old daughter has spiraled out of control. Desperate, she resigns from her partnership at a legal firm and moves back to her hometown in Whitefish, Montana, with the hope that family and nature can heal their wounds. Her investment in a heli-skiing and lodge operation makes financial sense, but her attraction to the owner doesn’t. He’s everything she’s come to hate—a man who makes his living chasing adventure.
Jake Hartman knows Maureen Shannon is off limits. She’s an investor in his company—a silent investor who’s never silent. Worse, she’s a mom who’s beautiful, intelligent and makes him feel more alive than he’s ever known. A self-confirmed bachelor, he finds himself uneasily contemplating a very different partnership.
But will Maureen be able to let go of her past and build a future with a man who never imagined becoming a husband or a father?
Moving on and family reconnecting
The Shannon Sisters series has been enjoyable series centering around 3 sisters as they each find their HEA. There is also a mystery that plays out throughout the series and comes to conclusion in A Hometown Proposal. A Hometown Proposal is Maureen’s story. I enjoyed the instant attraction between Maureen and Jake. I loved that her sisters were matchmaking and encouraging her to move on. Preteen daughter Holly is a standout character, she keeps her mother on her toes. She also has a special connection with Jake which is nice to see. Stray dog Lewis is icing on the story. Enjoyable series!
