  • The Sweet Bookshelf
    OhmygoshIlovedthissomuch!!!!!! THIS is exactly what an LDS romance should be. Period. It made me feel all of the things. The romantic tension is unreal you guys! I was practically jumping out of my skin the fire was so hot. When I finished reading I immediately checked to see if author Jeanette Miller had written any more books. If she had, I would have bought every single one. From page one I liked Shelby. She is a very likeable character.She se...

He sends her to Montana for a few weeks in the summer to meet his family and have his mom help with wedding plans. While there, she meets his older brother, Cameron, and sparks fly. What is she going to do??A story of self-discovery and love. I liked how Shelby ...

    My good friend Jen let me read this book, which was written by her relative Jeanette Miller. Montana Summer, published by Covenant Communications, is an LDS romance that addresses breaking up an engagement more seriously than any other book I have read previously. The author handles the challenging emotions of the situation in a believable and morally-grounded manner. And the emotional quality of the writing was potent without being overwhelming....

    I LOVED IT!!! I haven't read a real romance in so long! (mainly because they are all so naughty). This was a good, exciting romance. Even though I knew what was going to happen in the end, by the middle of the book I couldn't put it down. At 2:30 when I decided I needed to go to sleep, I dreamed about it all night and read it first thing this morning until I finished it (but, now I'm sad it's over). Loved the familial twists and turns, the deep, ...

    I couldn't put this one down! Great love story and shows that your true love may come when you least expect it! Shelby is engaged to Brad, a wonderful, temple worthy man. They plan to spend the summer together at his parents home in Montana, but his job starts earlier than expected, so she goes alone. She meets Cameron, Brads brother, and falls madly in love with him, and he falls for her. It was so wonderfully romantic!!
  • Aubrey Adams
    I usually don't enjoy LDS fiction because they tend to be over-the-top and (strangely) I usually dislike the characters and find them very hard to relate to, but I really liked this book. The characters were great, it was clean, and just a fun feel-good book.
  • Rachael Dorronsoro
    This book was really nice, I loved the forbidden love, although couldn’t imagine how a family could handle it in real life, the characters were amazing so real and life like, the story is set in Montanna, I have been to Montanna and it really is lovely, Loved it
  • Aimee (Getting Your Read On)
    This was a fabulous, easy LDS romance. I really enjoyed it. :) This book hit the spot for me the last couple days, like a good drink of lemonade. It was like brain candy. Or heart candy. I'll look forward to reading more books along these lines from this author.
  • Casey
    When you have those days when you really need a good clean romance this one will hit the spot.
  • Laura
    I loved it!!!!!
  • Kathleen
    This is a great LDS romance by an author that is a great friend of mine. I hope she will write another soon.
  • Cheri
    I loved it!! I couldn't put it down. I really enjoyed the descriptions of Montana and would love to visit one day.
  • Amy
    This was a super fast and fun read. Not seriously deep or anything...just fun:0)
  • Lori
    Wow...this was a great story. I think this is her first published story, but it was good to the end.
  • Kelly
    This book reminds me of "While you were Sleeping" the movie with Sandra Bullock. Sometimes predictable but a good clean read. I really liked Cameron, I felt for his struggles and the gossiping!

    8/11 OHSB Shelby has met MR. right and goes to spend some time with his family in Montana. Finds herself attracted to his brother Cameron. Fun story.
  • Sarah
    What was up with the wedding dress scene. That bugged me for a LDS book.
  • Crystal (Books Are Sanity!!!)
    Loved it and I couldn't put it down!!! One of the best books I've read in a long time!
  • Courtney Priestley
    After a life of trials, Shelby Hamilton has it all: the perfect job, the perfect fiance, and the perfect summer plans. Shelby and her fiance, Brad Thompson, made plans to spend the summer in Montana with Brad's family, but then things changed last minute and Brad sent Shelby to Montana for a few days alone. When she first arrives Shelby is greeted by her future in-laws with such warmth that she is a little taken aback. The only exception to this ...
  • Anna
    This book annoyed me. I usually love a cheesy, lds book, but this one was not my favorite. From almost the very start of the book Cameron and Shelby are falling in love with each other. What is up with that? The romance is so gag worthy, especially because Shelby is already engaged. "Her long, silky hair was a golden mist that radiated amber warmth. Every time he saw her he had to fight the image of his fingers dipping in the waves of her hair. ...
  • Brittany
    This book was okay. It was a cute romance with a bit of angst...well as angsty as a religious romance can have anyway. I would have liked it to have a bit more angst because the characters don't seem to get upset with each other at all. The only time that characters even get upset happens between the two brothers and it is resolved fairly quickly. It didn't seem very realistic in that respect. I would think that someone would be upset with Shelby...
  • Amy
    Really awkward love triangle and something about the writer's style (not sure what exactly) made for a book that sort of annoyed me. The setting was lovely, the story unfolded well enough, and the characters were all "nice" people. The dialogue fell a bit flat and the pace went from high drama to 'meh' like a pendulum. The ending was a happy 'meh' moment.No sex, no swearing, some violence
  • Marianne
    I liked it. The story flowed well and I liked the characters. Brad was always going to be on the losing side and she paints him so we do not feel sorry for him when he loses the girl and the contrast to his brother is stark. Really liked the character of Cameron though. Bit cliche
  • Becca
    This is a cute book. A light and fast read. I sometimes like books that don't take a lot of thought and are entertaining. This is one of those books. The characters were fun and I loved the backdrop of Montana. It made me want to visit all the beautiful places described in the book. It's only 3 stars for me. I hate saying bad things about any book but it kind of bugged me that Shelby, who is engaged to Brad, spends so much alone time with Cameron...
  • Kathryn
    I loved this story about a girl who hasn't the experience of a loving family and then finds herself at her fiance's house in Montana being showered with love from his parents and the unexpected connection to his older brother, Cameron.I was a little worried that the author would have some content that wouldn't be appropriate seeing how Shelby is engaged to be married and spending alone time with her soon to be brother-in-law, but it was all innoc...

    Montana Summer is a story about Shelby Hamlin who gets engaged to be married while attending BYU. She goes to Montana to spend several weeks in the summer with her future in-laws while her fiancé is doing an internship in Salt Lake City. While she is there she meets her fiancé's brother and is instantly attracted to him.Now I'm not a huge fan of LDS fiction romances. From the few I have read, I haven't been immensely impressed. Also the love tr...

  • Andrea Smith
    This was an LDS romance and at the beginning I wondered if I would like this book. After a couple of chapters it really took off. I read it in one sitting (ending at 2:45 am). That doesn't happen very often, but I really couldn't put it down. The middle of the book while Shelby was in Montana was definitely 5 stars. So much romantic tension! Loved their chemistry and interactions. It seriously made me want to move to Montana. Then a twist toward ...
  • Brenda
    I am so surprised at how much I enjoyed this book! I really, really dislike love triangles. In any form. I usually shy away from any story where I know someone will be hurt in the end, so I still can't believe I picked this up after reading the blurb. I loved Jeanette's writing however. She has a great talent for pulling you right into the story. I loved the way the characters worked out their issues and problems and seemed to keep growing. My on...
