Rocky Mountain Rendezvous by Misty M. Beller: Book Review

 *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

In 1837, Juniper Collins and her sisters are shocked by their father's deathbed request for them to return a special set of beads 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?

USA Today bestselling author Misty M. Beller ( writes romantic mountain stories set on the 1800s frontier and woven through with the truth of God's love. Her Southern roots run deep, and she lives in South Carolina with her husband and children. 

If you've ever read a book by Misty M. Beller, you know that she is absolutely wonderful of drawing the reader into the world of the book. Her books are always packed full of history that really puts you in that time, and her characters are well-written and unique, drawing you into their lives effortlessly. Admittedly, stories set in this particular time in history are not always my favorites or the easiest for me to get into... but I know when I pick up one by this author, it'll be a good story anyway. 

Rocky Mountain Rendezvous is no exception. It's packed full of history, unique characters that are hard not to love and the start of a wonderful new adventure and series. Fans will not want to miss her latest series, and for those new to her writing, this will be a great place to start. If you're looking to add a little history to your TBR, this is a great place to start.
