Publisher's Summary

A caravan driven at breakneck speed through the hills of Montana is the least of Magdalena Baxter's concerns. Evicted from their home, and due to soon give birth, the Gypsy woman is forced to follow her husband, Oswald, a drunk and abusive miner who hopes to find work in a neighboring town.

Despite calling Sweetwater Springs home, wealthy banker Caleb Livingston clings to his elitist East Coast ways. While this may have brought him prestige, he's missed out on romance at every turn.

When Caleb's buggy collides with the Baxters' caravan, Oswald is instantly killed and Maggie goes into labor. Caleb manages to keep his guilt and terror at bay long enough to make her comfortable and deliver her baby, a harrowing and ultimately endearing experience. Can Maggie - now stranded with her newborn child - learn to trust again? Will Caleb overcome his sense of obligation and highbrow conceit to open his heart to lasting love?

Rigid banker falls for Gypsy beauty

This story starts out with the excitement and mellows into a heartwarming love story.
If you hadn't read the previous Sweetwater Springs books, you might find the easy rapport between Maggie and the Livingston family a little farfetched. But things have happened to mellow their rigid standards before this to make the way clear for Maggie and her baby to fit right in.
Of course you shouldn't expect it to be all smooth sailing, but Debra Holland has a way with a story making it believable and compelling.
As told by Natalie Ross, you won't be able to stop listening before the all too quick conclusion. Or so it seemed to me.
If you are new to Sweetwater Springs, please start at the beginning so you can appreciate the development of the characters. If you are already a fan, you won't be disappointed.
Thank you Debra and Natalie for another great read/listen.

Fantastic!

This is another wonderful story. I was so happy to hear Caleb's adventure. The narrator did a great job and I didn't want it to end.

Another great story

This is a great series! I actually went back and read Wild Montana Sky again. The change in Caleb over the books is amazing. Although I was not a fan of Caleb in the first book, I am now. The other character with an amazing change was Ben!

I have enjoyed every book in this series. I feel like I'm a part of the town.

Kept my interest

I have thoroughly enjoyed this series and the development of all the characters. I love how the author worked previous characters back into this story to let you know what is going on in their lives. I loved the voice of the narrator although I had difficulty getting used to the strong accents that she chose for both of the main characters. Since Caleb was in previous books without a British accent , it was hard to get used to him suddenly having a very strong British accent in this book. I think the narrator was trying to portray a Bostonian accent. Maggie has not been in any of the previous books , so it was easier to get used to her foreign accent, although not what I had envisioned an American gypsy sounding like.

This Review Needs a Title

A cowboy chick book. I listened to several of Holland's books but lost interest in the series. They are just was not my kind of book. So, it makes little sense to continue to pound noise through my earbuds on the next book in the series. If it weren't so old, I'd turn it in for an audible.com refund.

I always love to go back to Sweetwater Springs.

I always love to go back to Sweetwater Springs and it was good to see Caleb get his HEA. Caleb is on his way to Morgan's Crossing for his usual meeting. He was driving a bit too fast over a hill and a large caravan is driving at breakneck speed coming from the other way. The caravan is run off the road and when Caleb gets to them, a pregnant woman is slightly injured and her husband dead. Maggie goes into labor early out in the middle of no where with only Caleb to help her. As Caleb and Maggie get to know each other better, Caleb realizes that he doesn't want to be alone any more and that he is truly smitten with the little girl that he helped bring into the world. Little Charlotte works some magic on Caleb and his family. Will Maggie remarry? Can Caleb keep her?

Villian to Hero

I read this book when it first came out and enjoyed it (rated it a 5 then too); but listening to it today it seems like a new story. I never imagined Caleb Livingston could be so human. When he stopped to help the crashed wagon, and then delivered Maggie's baby, you could almost see the transformation on his face, He was always such a prude, seeming almost inhumane, but looking upon the face of the newborn baby, you could see the light in his eyes and the blooming of his heart. If you have not ready Mystic Montana Sky before, I urge you to; if you have read it I urge you to listen to it. I never realized how much difference it would make. It's well worth the time and money.

Mystic Montana Sky: Montana Sky, Book 6

Caleb has been in The Montana Sky Series right from the start. He is a product of his time and environment so I made allowances for his snobbery and prejudices since he did show us glimpses of his goodness. That being said, I didn’t like him very much because of his treatment of the orphan twins in book 2. Although he was actively looking for a wife, he didn’t have any luck finding her because he was searching for a woman that would fit perfectly into his life. He saw himself as quite a catch and never considered what he could offer a wife. It was sad yet comical when the women he decided to pursue were won by others. I really didn’t hold out much hope that he would find his match.

This story had me immediately hooked. I really shouldn’t be surprised because I have been a Debra Holland fan for years. Still, I was surprised that I became so invested in Caleb’s story and was actually rooting for him to finally find his love. I was also amazed when other characters that I had previously not cared for showed real change and growth. This story definitely worked it’s magic on me because I enjoyed every minute of it.
