About the Book
In 1837, Juniper Collins and her sisters are shocked by their father’s final request in his will for a special set of beads to be returned to a Piegan Blackfoot woman he credits with saving his life during his travels west. Together, the sisters set out for the trapper rendezvous to find the woman, but their mission turns more daunting when they come upon the mass of men and lodges spread out in the Green River Valley.
Riley Turner came west to find peace and quiet and live off the land, but when four unprotected women arrive at the rendezvous, he feels compelled to help them and is more fascinated by Juniper than any other woman he’s known.
As their search brings only empty leads and dead ends, the sisters must decide whether to return east or stay in the mountains to continue looking–and that’s if the mystery woman is even still alive. Is the risk to honor their father’s last request worth the danger they find at every turn?
Discover the majesty–and treachery–of the Rocky Mountains in this unique combination of exhilarating adventure, inspiring faith, and sweet romance from USA Today bestselling author Misty M. Beller.
In My Opinion
Misty M. Beller is known and loved for her mountain wilderness historical romances. One thing that often makes her books stand out are the man vs. nature elements she puts in most of her books. But her newest—and first in a new series—is more about the characters. And I am here for it.
In Rocky Mountain Rendezvous, readers meet the Collins sisters. Four strong women with a tight-knit bond travel to the Rockies in search of a Piegan woman to fulfill their father’s dying wish. The sisters are close, but also have different personalities.
This book is told through the eyes of Juniper, the second oldest of the four, who is a nurturer. But when they arrive at the trapper rendezvous, Riley Turner takes the sisters under his protection—but soon enough discovers they’re plenty able to handle themselves. Yet, their vulnerability keeps Riley (as well as readers) with them.
Themes of belonging and sisterhood run throughout this story with a developing romance set at just the right pace and a quest to find Steps Right to keep the plot from plodding along.
