This is Graham Braden and Morgyn Montgomery’s story and what a captivating story it was. I have read several books by Melissa Foster and I thoroughly enjoy her style of writing. They say opposites attract and this is totally the case with Graham and Morgyn. Their attraction is instant and the chemistry between them is sizzling and intense. Thrown together by circumstance they get to know one another and realize that their relationship could blossom in to so much more. I loved how Graham accepted Morgyn’s quirkiness without question and honestly Graham was totally swoon worthy. Of course with all relationships, particularly those that occur almost instantly, the course of true love will not be smooth. I really love the Montgomery family as they are all so unique and all encompassing. I liked Graham and Morgyn and found them easy to relate to as I did the secondary characters. I am excited for the next book in the series which I believe is Brindle’s.

I couldn't stop smiling while reading Morgyn and Graham's story. Can't wait for the next Braden Montgomery story.

I know it must be hard to believe when with every Melissa Foster book review I say it’s my favorite. However she really exceeds my expectations every time. Every single book I read quickly becomes a favorite. In this book we find the story of Graham and Morgyn. I absolutely loved their story! I love it when I’m reading a book and have to stop for a minute because my face hurts from grinning non-stop. This was definitely one of those times. If you like romance books that have stories that are perfect in every way, then this is a book you don’t want to miss.

-My Review- Things are pretty calm and grounded in Graham Braden's life. Things are planned, things are organized and he weighs all risks to make sure he's making the right choice, that was, until he met his match when he headed to his friends wedding, in Oak Falls, Virginia. A quick visit as it starts, turns into a whole lot more when he runs into a delightful surprise by the name of Morgyn. There's no missing the sparks between Graham and Morgyn, when they meet at the local festival, but soon find themselves having to going in their own direction. While both very disappointed, fate wasn't about to let them down when their paths crossed once again at no other than the very same wedding.  Morgyn, the sister of the bride-to-be is a women in all her own. She does things her way, in her time with a care and love for all around her. While most people don't get her at all, and thinks she's a little eccentric , Graham doesn't mind one bit. He not only gets her, but he enjoys the quirks even if it does mean things get a little shaken up. Neither Graham or Morgyn can deny the  instant connection that sparked between them, and neither is willing to let it go anytime soon.   From a chance encounter at a festival to a second chance at a wedding, Graham and Morgyn see just how much truth is behind opposites attract, but is it truly a good thing? You'll have to find out yourself in Trails of Love!  Loved this book, really fun read all around. It was sweet and funny, truly enjoyed the banter between Graham and Morgyn, just made me chuckle. They don't seem like two you'd see together if you think about their opposites, but deep down they get each other and are always truly there for one another , like instant best friends, and that really made a difference!

If you follow my reviews, and I hope you do, you will know that I am a fan of Melissa Foster's books and Trails of Love is a perfect example of why. In Trails of Love Melissa has taken two of her most beloved families and brought them together, the Bradens and the Mongomerys, with the pairing of Morgyn and Graham who couldn't be more opposite than one another if you tried. Morgyn is the free-spirited soul that some consider flighty while Graham is an investor who assess the risk before taking the leap, they say opposites attract but I say that these two have just enough of their own quirks to balance one another out to make a perfect pairing. Morgyn and Graham met at a music festival where two of Morgyn's siblings are playing in their bands. I will not post any spoilers but I will say that their first encounter was eye opening! This story was insta-lust/love so we are gifted with plenty of sexy times with a bunch of sweet times as well, I felt everything moved at a fast pace but that was probably because they didn't have to many obstacles standing in their way. While Trails of Love is the third book in this series it can easily be read as a standalone, the couples from the first two books make appearances in this one so be warned that it will contain spoilers if you plan on reading them but haven't yet. I would recommend this story as well as the series to lovers of contemporary romance especially those that like some sweet with their naughty. Happy Reading!!! **I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Readers Copy of this book**

Two thumbs up! Once I started this book I could not put it down! Melissa's characters are so realistic. The book draws you in from the beginning and holds your interest until the end. Graham and Morgyn are drawn to each other from the beginning and fate just keeps bringing them back together. They compliment each other and turn their individual weakness into their joint strength. Perfect fun read for a stormy day.

I loved both of the main characters from the start of the novel until the very last word. There was literally nothing I disliked about either of them. I loved the differences between them and how it just sort of worked, but even more, I loved the numerous similarities in the two, although they weren’t immediately noticeable. Because once these two really started talking and sharing, it was clear that they held several of the same core beliefs and what they wanted to accomplish in their lives. Each of them also come from huge families, which became very confusing at times. I’m familiar with both families from previous novels, but keeping brothers, sisters, sets of twins, cousins, etc. straight was a bit of a challenge at times! These people would appear in the story and I would find myself thinking, are they the ones from the Inn and she was a writer, or are these the ones that have the outdoor adventure business, and so on. But this in no way impacted how much I fell in love with Graham and Morgyn’s story! Once again, Melissa Foster has blown me away with her ability to think up, create, develop, and bring life to such incredibly unique characters. Somehow, they all come together perfectly as a family or within their circle of friends, yet each has their own distinct voice that makes each of her novels so special and different from the others. Readers are probably tired of me saying, “I think this might be my favorite of her novels,” so I won’t say that this time. Actually, yes I will because these are definitely my favorite of her characters! Fans of Melissa Foster will eat this one up, and for those that haven’t experienced her novels yet, any contemporary romance fans will absolutely love this one and any of this series with these insanely sexy men and beautiful women that just happen to march to the beat of their own drummers.

I absolutely adore Graham and Morgyn! They approach life in two totally different ways; however, they mesh as if they were cut from the same cloth. I love the bright, cheerful nature of their personalities and how they're less of a "broody" couple. I found myself smiling at their connection and banter quite often. Their only true obstacle is figuring out how to mesh their lives together; and despite the clear differences in their life approach, this couple has the stars shining brightly for them to create something amazing. Morgyn initially comes across as "too" flighty for Graham but it didn't take long for her to capture my own heart. I wish I could have her sweet & free spirit!  I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.

They say opposites attract--this book will certainly prove that point! An immediate instant attraction--Neither of them is into one night stands---but---yes this one gets quite racy. Graham is supposed to go to his friends wedding--and he goes--never expecting to see Morgyn there. Love is in the air but neither will admit to it--and Morgyn does not believe in marriage--commitment yes, marriage no. Morgyn has a store which is about to be sold--she has to find another place for her business. She is not really thinking about it--but Graham is and against his better judgement he agrees to look over her business and give her some advice. Then she is invited to show some of her unique handmade pieces at a show being given--they are a hit-- Graham has plans and when he tells her what they are--she is all for it. But can they make this all work? I really can't say much more without giving away the plot. Hum--are they really opposites----only time will tell.

Get ready to swoon as you've never swooned before! Graham and Morgyn are on fire in Trails of Love by Melissa Foster. Every Foster story pulls you in, but this one had me laughing, sighing, and getting misty-eyed throughout. Set in Oak Falls, Morgyn's business is at a crossroads but she's a free-spirit. Graham is a little more buttoned up, while still being sexy as all get out. Maybe I should just say he's a tad bit more conservative when it comes to business but maybe not so uptight in the bedroom. Can these two come together inside and outside the bedroom - or truck, as the case may be. As in all the Love in Bloom romances, Morgyn and Graham's story is interspersed with family dynamics and is a beautiful love story. Well written, nicely paced, light-hearted, and is a fun and sexy read. The perfect book to keep you warm on cold nights.  I promise you will be smiling when you finish this book and I cannot wait until Melissa Foster introduces my next book boyfriend.

Morgyn Montgomery is a happy go lucky girl who barters and trades through life in Oak Falls. Graham Braden thinks he's the opposite, a successful business man who travels the world, but maybe they are more similar than either of them realise. A lovely book, it is great to follow Morgyn as she discovers there is a world outside Oak Falls, the only issue I have is that maybe Morgyn is a little bit too nice. Still a great book and great to revisit all the Braden and Montgomery characters again.

A dream come true to those who are Braden/Montgomery Family fans. These two families are forever intertwined with the coming together of Graham Braden and Morygn Montgomery. These are two amazing families who are mentioned throughout this series and now are coming together as couples. I love to reconnect with characters that intrigued me while reading past books and are now the main characters in their own stories. The persistence in Graham’s need for Morgyn is wonderful. He doesn’t let their differences push him away, he embraces her uniqueness, loves her spirit, and lets her be herself. Morgyn also accepts Graham’s need for control and order, yet she does push him to accept that everything in life in not able to be under his control. I have to mention the Jericho brothers. Breaking in horses at an ungodly hour without shirts on….mmmm I want to hide on the hill and watch that. I look forward to hearing more about these cowboys.

Cute, feisty and sexy as all get out! With the next book in the Bradens and Montgomerys series, we get Graham and Morgyn's story. As always, the characters were adorable together and quick to pull me into their story. I felt like the story wasn't as well developed as a typical Melissa Foster book though. While we went through a little strife with them, it was only a dash of an after thought and then all plowed ahead. Two huge families came into play to fill in the space, but the overall couple needed more development. Still loved reading it though! When Graham Braden passes through a local festival while he's heading to Oak Falls, Virginia for his buddy Reed's wedding, he never expects to meet a woman who knocks him for a loop at first sight. He can't resist temptation and she's a hard woman to walk away from. Come to find out, she's Reed's new sister-in-law and one of the reason's Reed wanted him to stick around and give some opinions on the theater remodel. Free spirit Morgyn Montgomery can't believe she met a man at the festival. He's more than she ever dreamed of and if she believed in marriage, she might propose on the spot! She has some big business decisions to make, and Graham has the knowledge to give her some advise, but he usually steers clear of mixing business with pleasure ... but for her, he might break all of his rules!

Morgyn is a kind wandering soul that sees the world in colours and she creates unique pieces that are inspired by the world around her. Though she is a business owner, she is a true free spirit that will close down her business to travel and find inspiration. Graham is a cautious adventurer that wants to do more to help people in the world. Since meeting Morgyn "Sunshine" he has found ways to make a bigger impact while embracing the free spirit within himself. The pair connected at a festival and are virtually inseparable since. Independently Morgyn and Graham are successful beings, but together they are powerful forces that change their world and the world around them. Who would have thought that a festival and a unique meeting would have led to such a powerful connection, meaningful partnership, and travels. Melissa Foster does it again. You'll get wrapped up in a magnificent love story that you don't want to end, but even as it does, you are left with so much more and can't wait to read about the next budding relationship. Disclosure: At my request, I have received an advance copy of this book for review purposes. I am not being financially compensated for this post, all opinions expressed are my own honest opinion.

Graham and Morgyn are immediately connected when the happen to meet at a festival. While they seem like they are opposites - him being a planner and her being a free spirit - they really have a lot in common. This makes their relationship believable. Melissa Foster does really well at writing couples that make each other stronger. The story is a quick and enjoyable read. I enjoyed catching up with characters we've met before and look forward to the next installment. I received an advance copy for an honest review.

Melissa Foster has come through again with a great read! I'm so happy I started my year with Trails of Love. Morgyn is a perky, impulsive business owner. She would fit right in where I live as it seems businesses are open when they want to be. Most close for at least four months - winter - even though we boast a ski resort in town. Graham, soon to be called Cracker by Morgyn, is anything but impulsive. His only impulsiveness comes from his adrenaline junkie attitude towards his non-work activities. When Morgyn and Graham cast eyes on each other, she thinks he is gay. Then, they meet. It is probably one of the best meets I have read and you should read it rather than have me tell you about it. One or two days at a music festival is not going to be enough for the sparks that fly between these two. Imagine their surprises when both of them show up at the same wedding a day later. The whirlwind week following that wedding will change both their lives. You need to pick up a copy of Trails of Love and see what happens. I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.

Opposites attract and have values the other is missing . . . Another couple to fall in love with. With the new year comes a new romance to fall for. The couple. The friends. The family. The love. The friendships. This was another home run hit from Melissa Foster. You find another reason to believe that love will be the answer to it all. Morgyn and Graham show that there something deeper than the differences between them. They find common ground and uniqueness in the quirks of their relationship. Morgyn and Graham are characters that you could find being your friend. The writing of Melissa Foster gives you that sense of coming home to family and old friends. You take the journey with the couple and enjoy the secondary characters. You find connections with all the characters and get immersed in the story. Another story to had to your come back and read again.

While at a music festival with his brother, Graham stumbles across an enchanting woman. They lock eyes, but he loses sight of her until she sees him peeing outside. Taken by the dancing woman, Graham spends the evening getting to know Morgyn better. Morgyn is quirky, whimsical, free-spirited, and like a ray of sunshine. She breathes life and light into everything. Although he finds her free-spirited views different, he’s immediately attracted to her. Suddenly, coming to Oak Falls doesn’t seem so bad. Morgyn is all about tradition, love, auras, living life to the fullest, etc. Morgyn is disorganized, but highly creative, sheltered but yearns to help others. Morgyn owns a shop that specializes in one of a kind items created out of reclaimed materials. Morgyn’s creative, carefree personality is what captures Graham’s attention. As they spend more time together, they can’t imagine living life without the other. Their relationship is soon put to the test when Graham is offered a job out of the country.... I LOVED Cracker and Sunshine! I loved how two totally opposite, but the same people are so right for each other. This story is unique, entertaining, and makes you want to jump into the story and give Sunshine a big hug! If you’re looking for an insta-love, opposites attract, quirky novel...this is the one for you! I highly recommend this novel and can’t wait to see what’s in store for Morgyn’s sisters. I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.

The story of Graham and Morgyn honestly sent chills down my spine from start to finish. The story was beautifully written and combines two families that I love. Morgyn wasn't expecting Graham and his entrance to her life was amazing. It was beautiful to watch their story unfold and how quickly the two of them were able to integrate their lives. Their story gives me hope and inspiration for the trials and tribulations that I face in my own life - watching them has shown me that no matter what happens, happiness is always waiting. I can't wait for the next book in the series!

Trails of Love by Melissa Foster had me hooked from page one. It’s a story about Morgyn and Graham who meet at a festival and have that instant connection. Graham is swoon worthy and everything you would want in a boyfriend, and Morgyn is a little quirky and a true free spirit. This is a very feel good kind of book with a lot of chemistry and sexy thrown in. I see this one going to a best seller. I did so enjoy the other friends from other books showing appearances in this story. I love how they all intertwine. Kudos Melissa Foster. I love, love, love this story!!!

Trails of Love is the third book in the Pleasant Hill – Oak Falls series, but can totally be read as a standalone. This was the second book I had read from Melissa Foster and I am very happy that my first impression is now confirmed: she is a very good, a very talented, a very entertaining author. Also this time I enjoyed the story, the characters. From page one. As it was not usual how Morgyn and Graham met. I loved it. It was not only funny but also we can feel the chemistry between the two from the moment they met. These two people are like fire and ice, and still so made for each other. Morgyn with her (care)free, spontaneous spirit, and Graham, who calculates risks all the time. Totally opposites, yet so perfect for each other. What, if not love at first sight? Although at first Graham does not want to invest in Morgyn's business, he cannot help, but invest in her heart. This book is highly ecommended for everybody with a romantic heart and soul. And for everyone, who is in need for a good laughter. I myself had a lot of LOL and also lots of swoon moments, so I could not put the book down. So be prepared: fun and heat are guaranteed. Don't miss out on it! I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

Graham and Morgyn are truly opposites except when it comes to their families and people they care about. Where Graham plans, Morgyn just goes with a feeling. He's well traveled, she isn't. Graham is the perfect man to help Morgyn discover new things and at the same time she opens his eyes to things as well. The care and respect they show each other is very impressive. Pick this book up and settle in for some laughs and a few awwwws as you read it, no disappointment in this book! I received an ARC and am voluntarily leaving my review.

When free spirited souls collide. I really liked Morgyn’s ‘floaty’ character and she swirls around Graham so easily it’s a beautiful love story. The way she sees life and how she lives it is something we should all do and it made me realize things too along the way. It’s a HEA story filled with emotions and a humorous side. Meeting her sisters is an entertainment in itself; each different but somehow loveable in their own way. I’m always thrilled to see how the characters I’m getting to know are interconnected with others from Melissa Foster’s previous books and it’s always a pleasure to get a glimpse into their evolving lives. Graham and Morgyn’s story is a reminder of how some people have the ability of getting the hidden side of your personality out. Gently without knowing they make each other bloom into better human beings. “You soared into my life like a gust of wind or a runaway kite—magical and unstoppable. “ Looking forward to read more about the Montgomery sisters and the sexy Bradens.

3.75 stars--TRAILS OF LOVE is the third instalment in Melissa Foster’s contemporary, adult The Bradens and Montgomerys: Pleasant Hill-Oak Falls romance series-a spin off from the author’s Bradens at Pleasant Hills series. This is free spirit / independent business-woman Morgyn Montgomery, and financial investor/advisor Graham Braden’s story line. TRAILS OF LOVE can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary. Told from dual third person perspectives (Morgyn and Graham) TRAILS OF LOVE follows the instant attraction and building relationship between free spirit / independent business woman Morgyn Montgomery, and financial investor/advisor Graham Braden. At a recent music festival Morgyn will ‘catch’ Graham with his pants down but their instant attraction finds our couple promising the future, and a potential happily ever after. What ensues is the quick building romance between Graham and Morgyn, and the potential fall-out as Graham’s business takes him around the world, leaving a heartbroken Morgyn to pick up the pieces. Morgyn Montgomery lives to repurpose and redesign but her favorite pastime is remembering the grandfather who taught her to live and love life, including the trains he so much adored. Graham Braden is a successful businessman whose well-ordered life is turned upside down by the woman with whom he would fall in love, a woman who represents everything he wants and more. TRAILS OF LOVE is a story of insta-lust/love between a free spirited heroine, and a man who is a stickler for order. There is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including all of the Braden and Montgomery siblings, who may or may not be looking for love. The premise is fast paced, flirty and realistic; there is very little story line conflict; the characters are sexy and sassy; the romance is passionate, tender and seductive without the use of over the top sexually graphic language and text. TRAILS OF LOVE is a spirited and heart warming story from the pen of Melissa Foster
