About The Bitterroot Inn:
Her past. His secrets. They have more in common than she knows.
Maisy is happily content with the life she’s built for herself and her young son in small-town Prescott, Montana. Her child is thriving, her business is growing, and her family is as close as they’ve ever been. But when a handsome stranger walks into the lobby of her motel, her simple life is swept up in a wave of affection for his gentle heart. None of those feelings can be trusted, though. She made that mistake before with another man. The man she murdered.
Hunter was a different man when he first saw Maisy Holt from afar. He took one look at her and ran in the opposite direction. But years later, he’s back in Montana and unable to keep his distance. He shouldn’t have tried to find her but he never was good at rejecting temptation. The promise of the good she could bring into his life is too hard to resist. Maybe if he can disguise the lies and hide the deceit, he can keep her from learning the truth. Because his only chance at a future with her is by burying his past.

Just wow….I’m in love with Devney Perry, her characters, and the small town of Prescott. It was my first visit there, but it definitely won’t be my last!
Maisy is content with the life she is living. She is grateful for what she has, her sweet boy Coby, and she has taken an old motel and made it her own. It’s thriving and for the most part she is too. All of her friends have found happiness, and she isn’t jealous. However, she would love to have an honest and strong man in her life to romance her, but most importantly, someone she could trust. When her a new guest, Hunter, shows up looking for a room, she is literally left speechless. He makes her come alive, but she isn’t sure she can trust herself with men. She made a horrible mistake in the past that she is determined not to make again. As she gets to know him, she finds herself falling quickly. He makes it so easy when she sees him with Coby. As she is hiding things about her past, so is he. There is more of a connection between them than she could ever imagine.
LOVED both Maisy and Hunter! Maisy was inspiring to me. Her life completely changed several years before. She was in her early twenties and still naïve and a bit innocent in the ways of the world. She thought she had met the man of her dreams until he became the man of her nightmares. Now, she is a business owner and a single mom. Instead of being a cold-hearted woman, she isn’t. She is loving and forgiving, giving others second chances. She has grown into a phenomenal mother!
Of course, Hunter is gorgeous. He would make me tongue-tied just like he did Maisy. His most attractive qualities are his perseverance, his loyalty, and his protectiveness. He made Maisy feel safe, and he did little things, like helping her paint…things that she would sometimes have to do by herself. His relationship with Coby was what made me fall the hardest. He just adored that precious baby boy!!! Be still my heart!!!! It was his love and protectiveness of Maisy and Coby that led him to hide things.
I can’t not write about sweet, precocious Coby. I have boys myself, although they are almost grown, and Perry truly captured the essence of little boys! My favorite was him thinking the mailman was the person who gave him everything his mother had ordered for him from Amazon. He loved without question or expectations!
I fell in love with Prescott, Montana too! Perry described it in such detail that I could picture it so clearly in my mind. I could see the old-fashioned lamppost that had flower baskets hanging from them, the community fishing pond, and the Bitterroot Inn.
I always love a romance with substance. Yes, there were some steamy scenes between Maisy and Hunter that gave me butterflies, but there was also a sense of family. A family can be blood-related or one we choose, and Perry perfectly illustrated that throughout the book.
I always like to read the Author’s Note in every book I read. For me, it tells me a lot about the author. What Devney Perry’s told me was how much she loves writing and how much she loves her characters. That was evident in every word that she wrote. Not only did her characters take me on a journey, they took her on a journey to being the fantastic writer that she is. I will TRY to wait patiently for what she has next, but in the meantime, I will be found reading the other books in this series.
