Love is Never Best Played Out on TV…
Adalyn Stalling's clients convinced her to be a contestant on their reality TV show, The One. Milllions of viewers tune in each week to watch a group of bachelorettes try to win one bachelor's heart, and then during the next season, watch bachelors do the same.
Adi appeared on the show twice—once as a potential love-match for the bachelor, once as the bachelorette. As a marketing executive for the firm who handles the show, Adi initially became a part of the cast in order to learn more from the "inside." But as much as she wanted to stay professionally removed, she ended up giving her heart to both Adam and Connor.
Both times, the men broke it off.
Now America's most famous "loser at love," Adalyn is trying to pick up the pieces of her life. Given the media frenzy and the paparazzi that chase her, she's finding it difficult. And just as she learns she may have picked up a stalker, her childhood friend, Chase Rollins, tracks her down at last. He informs her that her beloved grandfather is ailing and needs her help, in more ways than one.
So begins an epic summer in which Adalyn needs to decide where she belongs, what she is supposed to do, and with whom she might find true love at last. All Once Upon a Montana Summer…
"With a deft hand born of experience and talent, Lisa T. Bergren fuses heartbreak, insecurity, and regret with a slow burn romance, small town charm, and a revelatory journey about what matters most in her contemporary romance, Once Upon a Montana Summer. Readers will identify with Adi's missteps with love and understand her shattered heart. They will fall in love with Chase's gentle pursuit, adore Adi's ailing Gramps, and hope for friends as loyal as Logan and Bea. Tender romance, humourous moments, and a hint of danger make a visit to Glacier within the pages of this love story essential for every romance devotee." --Rel Mollet, Relz Reviewz
"While I enjoy a good series, I really enjoy when a book has everything I need in one volume; romance, suspense and a 'happily ever after.' Bergren never disappoints in a new story and she is always a favorite of mine. I highly recommend Once Upon a Montana Summer, you won't be disappointed!" --Julie Graves, My Favorite Pastime Blog
