I totally enjoyed reading Wedding Surprise by Ann B. Harrison, book four in The Moore Sisters of Montana series. Mari spent much of her teen years with her boyfriend’s family until a cruel misunderstanding had her fleeing her safe haven. Ten years later, single mother Mari returns to her hometown to open her own wedding and event business after refurbishing the historic Lake Hotel. She also wants to make amends with the boy she once loved and left, but there are too many secrets are holding her back. Contractor Ethan looks forward to working on the Lake Hotel but is shocked to learn that the girl he'd once loved and imagined marrying has moved back to Cherry Lake. He tells himself too much water's passed under that bridge, but Mari still lights him up. Ethan's heard that you can't go back again, but he is determined to show Mari what's she's missed all these years while she was away. Mari now has the support of her half-sisters, father and step-mother, family she didn’t have the last time she lived in Cherry Lake and this emboldens her to let Ethan get to know his son. It also gives her the strength to ask Ethan’s mother, Pearl, for forgiveness for leaving the way she did. Running away might have seemed the best decision for Mari, given the circumstances at the time, but one wonders what would have happened if Ethan responded to her text messages or is she hadn’t left at the time. Both Mari and Ethan need to relearn how to trust each other before they can love again. Ms. Harrison wrote a wonderful and moving story that is not to be missed. It had me laughing, crying and everything in between. This story is filled with endearing characters. 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.

Mari’s half sister Bella- who was a famous chef now and had won Masterchef a couple of years ago- said Mari looked pensive. Mari had come back to honor her promise to Rake- Ethan’s deceased brother and her husband who had been dead two years now. Mari also had to let Ethan know he was the biological father of her son Noah who was ten. But Mari was very scared. Mari had hired Ethan’s company to do some remodeling on The Lake Hotel which she owned. So she had no choice but to come clean with Ethan. But Ethan had been the one who had dumped Mari when the were a lot younger and then she learned she was pregnant and tried to contact Ethan and he would not answer her call. Ethan also had backed her against his father had sided with his father which left Mari no choice but to leave. Mari was afraid Ethan would mae Noah- their son- difficult. Mari knew losing Rake who was the only father Noah had known and loved and had been hard on Noah as well as her. Mari loved to take something old and broken and make them shine again., The same as April her youngest sister did. April took the empty shop Mari owned and turned it into a decorating and florist building. Mari was having parts of the old hotel redone to restart her wedding business . Mari dreaded going to her foster parents- Pearl and Jeff who were also Ethan’s parents. and begging them to forgive her and follow up on Rake’s plan for her to fit in again. Ethan came into the hotel yelling hello and Mari now had to the man she had fallen in love with when he was a boy. Rake had been nothing like his younger brother . Rake had been honest to a fault with those he loved . Ethan drew Mari into a hug something she didn’t expect, as she had expected anger maybe even hatred as she had deserted him without a word even if he had broke up with her and then she seen him making out with another girl. He had announced she was hemming him in. making decisions for him that he didn’t want tp be part of any more and had broke up with her and broke her heart. Mari ended up leaving with Raft as he found her at the side of the road. After Mari had left Ethan ahd felt so much guilt. He also realized he’d made a huge mistake. He had still loved Mari hen he broke up with her but it had been too late to take the horrible words back he had said to her. Ethan understood Rake’s decision to leave and follow his dream to become a famous boxer. But he had taken Mari with him and married her and they hadn’t bothered to stay or make any contact with Ethan or his parents. Then Ethan said thinking back he wasn’t sure Mari did anything wrong . He knew Mari better than his father did and Ethan had doubts Mari had stolen anything like his father had claimed. He was sorry he didn’t have Mari’s back back then. Ethan and Mari had been best friends when they were in school and were like peas in a pod. Pearl and Jeff had taken MAri in when Mari’s mother -Betty- had taken off and left her on her own. Mary felt normal when she was around Ethan. I loved this second chance novel . This was emotional but a great read. So much misunderstandings, hurt, and pain but in the end our couple got their HEA. I loved Ethan and Mari together and how they interacted with each other. I loved how Noah took the news Ethan was actually his father and how he interacted with Ethan as well as his grandma Pearl and grandpa Jeff. I advise you to read the first three books of this series in order just makes everything come together. I highly recommend.

Yes finally out author Ann B Harrison has finally decided it is time to let us know about more of Mari's past history. If you have read the first three books in this series, you will know is they were about her step sisters and based on Cherry Lake, Montana. Cherry Lake is a neighborhood of sorts to Marietta vs know my hometown. Back to Mari,.... She has been gone from Cherry Lake for 10 years and came back upon s death bed promise of sorts to her husband. Rake who was also from Cherry Lake. Time to face some ghosts from days past and lay them all to rest. Will Mari finally meet Ethan her his school sweetheart face to face? This books plays out like a great movie. You know the one you talk out loud to at the movies and the people tell you you sush. Let me warn you you read this in a room a without a bunch a folks cause if you are like me, you might yell at the characters like I did. This book moved me and grabbed me while at the same time I wanted to smack some of the secondary characters. Bravo to author Ann B Harrison now ~whip back to the grindstone...I need April's book.

A possible second chance at love romance. Wedding Surprise by Ann B. Harrison, book four in The Moore Sisters of Montana series. I enjoyed reading more of Mari's story. The storyline grabbed me from the first page and wouldn't let me go until the last page.
