I loved, loved, loved Road to You by Barbara Ankrum, book two in her Band of Brothers series. Noah Mathis, a mysterious man with a lot of secrets, knew he had to be in Marietta, Montana for the wedding of one his ex-Navy SEAL brothers, no matter the consequences his absence might cause. Even his brothers don’t know about his secrets. Gemma Wade, a journalist for a Seattle newspaper is in Marietta to write a fluffy, romantic piece about the unusual increases in marriages there. Being punished for an embarrassing career misstep is bad enough, but it’s probably karma that Gemma also stumbles, literally, upon Mr. Right in the absolute wrong place. Noah wants Gemma to be his plus one for the week, even knowing this short break from his real life will end all too soon. Gemma, being a nosy, investigative reporter realizes that Noah isn’t who everyone believes him to be. This accidental encounter could expose Noah’s secrets which could affect both of them forever. Gemma needs to figure out which is more important, saving her flailing career or sacrificing her happily ever after? Maybe the magic of Marietta will solve both of their problems. Or maybe a little Audrey Hepburn and a black cat will provide the answers. This wonderful story was fun to read and easy to visualize the story as it occurred. I totally loved these characters and didn’t want to put this book down. I especially loved the comparison and parallels to the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Ms. Ankrum did a fantastic job creating her characters, making them realistic, keeping the story interesting, making me forget the world around me and not letting me go until I turned the last page, wanting more. I highly recommend this book to other readers and look forward to the next book in the series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

Loved this book of two people, who are not telling each other the whole truth. Gemma and Noah, both are hiding their true identity from each other and friends. Gemma has arrived in Marietta to cover all of the weddings that have taken place and Noah is there for a wedding of one his "brothers". There is an instant connection between the two, but will it last longer the weekend with their secrets. This is a book that I could not put down. Loved these characters, both hurting inside but perfect for each other. This is the second book in the series but can be read as a stand alone. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

This was a very enjoyable. It had a unique and interesting storyline, a nice easy pace to the story, excellent writing and intriguing characters. All this combined to make a great read. While this is the second in a series it is easily read standalone. In this story we have Gemma Wade who after getting into a bit of hot water with her boss has found herself in Marietta seeking a story on why there seems to be so much love in the air. While there she meets Noah Mathis at a wedding. They hit it off right from the start. Thing is though Noah's not really who he claims to be. Exposing the truth could give her the story she needs to revive her career but what would it do to Noah? Will she keep his secret or expose him to the world. I highly recommend this one.
