I enjoyed reading A Hot Montana Summer by Karen Foley, book one in Glacier Creek series. Glacier Creek is a small town in Montana where Jamie Colter grew up across the street from his best friend Dylan McCafferty and his older sister Rachel. Despite being six years younger, Jamie has always had a crush on Rachel. Now, a combat-hardened Marine Jamie is home recuperating from a mortar attack that left him with a busted leg and a bad case of cabin fever. Rachel returns home to nurse her wounds and make a fresh start after her divorce from her rich, jet-setting, never home younger husband. After seeing Jamie’s good lucks and bold confidence Rachel is shocked that he is no longer the scrawny boy she remembered. Jamie has never forgotten Rachel and tells her he is hers for the taking. I struggled with Rachel and her attitude toward Jamie. She was attracted to him yet kept harping on their age difference. I realize that the “boy” she married was younger, wealthy, only thought of himself and abandoned her to party around the world, but Jamie was not her ex. In fact, Jamie worked hard to get Rachel to see him as the only man who is perfect for her. As these two spent time together sometimes it felt like Jamie was the older one, not Rachel. I really did enjoy reading this book as Ms. Foley wrote a wonderful story in which I connected with the characters. I recommend this book to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

Reviewed by Natasha Jackson for Readers' Favorite Hot Montana Summer by Karen Foley is the story of Jamie and Rachel who lived on the same block for the entirety of their childhoods. Jamie proclaimed one day, when he was just a boy, that he would marry Rachel, who was leaving soon for college. She laughed it off and assured him he wouldn’t be interested in her when the time came. Fast forward a decade and Jamie is now an injured Marine and Rachel a divorcee. Both are back home in Montana and four meddling parents conspire to get them together. Karen Foley did a good job of fleshing out the characters and adding that hint of special Montana-ness that makes these kinds of stories so entertaining. What I liked about Hot Montana Summer was Jamie. He was charming and hot, and yes a little hard and damaged, but he was the star of this story. Rachel was a well developed character, but she was the thing I liked least about this story. Harping on the age difference when she was the only one who seemed to care got tired after a while. It took me a very long time to warm up to her and though I liked Karen Foley’s story a lot, even by the end I was hoping someone else would slide in and steal her man. Jamie knew what he wanted and, unlike her ex-husband, he wasn’t afraid to say it or reach for it. This is a quick read about not letting your past define your future and being brave enough to try again after failure.

A Hot Montana Summer (Glacier Creek Book 1) by Karen Foley. This is Jamie Colter and Rachel McCafferty’s story. Jamie was Rachel brother’s best friend. He has always had a crush on Rachel. Their paths cross when Jamie is home recuperating from a combat injury and Rachel has come home after her divorce. Jamie is still extremely attracted to Rachel and wants her to give them a chance at true love. Rachel is definitely drawn to Jamie but struggles with age difference. Will Rachel take a chance on love? Jamie’s character was great! I love when a May-December story has the woman as the older one. Now, I enjoyed Rachel’s character too but at times Jamie acted older than her. In Rachel’s defense she lost confidence in herself from the way her ex husband had treated her when they were married. I read this story from beginning to end in one sitting. FYI, contains mature content. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

2.5 stars I downloaded this one on a whim because it sounded relatively fluffy and I liked the idea of a new series to start. I liked Jamie. He knows what he wants and he goes after it. Rachel is a good person who is trying to find her way after a messy divorce. Together they have a lot of potential. Unfortunately, we didn’t see any part of them getting to know each other, which kept this from being a great book for me. I struggled with the idea that they never really interacted before Rachel comes back and yet, Jamie has been in love with her for his entire life. Plot wise, it was just okay. The push and pull and Rachel’s constant hang up over the age difference got old fairly quickly. And I wasn’t a fan of how she treated Jamie whenever anyone else was around. The writing has a lot of telling, not showing and several of the same words being repeated. Overall, it was a quick read and I did like the idea of the story and the characters. Sadly, for me, it was lacking in execution. I doubt I’ll be reading any other books in this series. **Huge thanks to Tule Publishing for providing the arc free of charge**

Loved this book. Read in one sitting. As teenagers, Jamie professed his love to Rachel, saying "You're going to marry me someday." Fast forward and Jamie has returned home from the Marines with an injured leg and Rachel has returned home after a recent divorce. Their parents are all going on trip and hires Rachel to help with Jamie, the neighborly thing to do.They can't deny the chemistry between them but Rachel also can't deny that she is older then Jamie. Noe for Jamie to convince Rachel that age does not matter. I so loved these characters. Loved how Jamie did not give up Rachel. Great sexual chemistry between them. After reading this book I so want to visit Glacier Park, on my bucket list. I'm looking forward to reading, Dylan's story. I highly recommend this book!!

This was a very enjoyable read with some fun and interesting characters as well as a fun storyline. Jamie Colter is a Marine home on medical leave. His bum leg makes it difficult for him to get around so when his parents go out of town they recruit a neighbor to give him a hand. Rachel McCafferty is temporarily living with her parents after going through a difficult divorce. Jamie the kid always had a huge crush on the older Rachel. Jamie the man knows that what he feels for Rachel is far more than a crush. Convincing Rachel to put aside her misgivings over her recent divorce and their age difference becomes Jamie's number one goal when she agrees to help him out. Definitely a book I recommend to everyone.

The first book in the Glacier Creek series, A Hot Montana Summer by Karen Foley. This book grabbed me from the first page with it's likable characters, captivating storyline and dialogue. First line, "You're going to marry me someday." I look forward to see what the next book brings us.
