Review: Montana Dawn

Book Review: Montana Dawn, by Caroline Fyffe


Montana Territory, 1883
When Luke McCutcheon finds Faith Brown about to give birth in her rickety wagon, his first instincts are to ride for help. Instead, he stays and delivers a beautiful baby girl. Unable to leave the pretty young widow and her little son and newborn unprotected in the Montana wilderness, he brings them along on his family's cattle drive, to the absolute delight of the other friendly cowboys.

Luke, third son of Montana's wealthy McCutcheon family, is different from his brothers. As the offspring of a Cheyenne warrior, he carries a chip on his shoulder for all to see. His flashing eyes and handsome face make Faith feel she's stepped into some long-ago tale where men cherish their women--and keep them safe. If only she could trust him! Faith is on the run, and although she's pampered and protected by Luke and his family, she just can't risk the consequences of sharing the details of her past--one that's hunting to take her back to the nightmare she's just escaped. Happy-ever-afters are for fairytales, she reminds herself sternly as her heart feels the warm pull of his. Still, she can't help but dream of a loving family, a home to call her own, a beautiful and bright...Montana Dawn

Genre: historical romance

Publication date: January 2014

Mature content: yes

Review: While I enjoyed this story, sadly I couldn't connect with any of the main characters. Faith is running from her past but for someone who is brave enough to travel in the last stages of pregnancy and with just a young boy for company at that time and place, she shows an amazing lack of sense in a lot of other things. She lies to Luke throughout all the book - he knows it and gives her ample opportunities to come clean but she never does right until the last pages, so I also couldn't understand how he could fall in love with her. And the plot moves so slowly in places that it was hard not to give in to the temptation to just jump a few pages here and there.

All in all, it's just not that amazing and I can't bing myself to actively recommend it. 

Have a wonderful weekend,
