Erik Lindstrom never had much faith in love. He saw his parents’ marriage collapse and vowed to avoid the same anguish himself. His fiercely protective nature drew him to a career in law enforcement, but he’s managed to keep himself and his heart safe…until now.
Katrin Svenson is in danger. After leaving her home in secret, her only hope for safety seems to lie in the hands of her handsome but aloof protector, who's steeled himself against her deep blue eyes and sunny smile.
Sparks fly between the officer and the nurse, and those sparks turn to fire as Katrin melts the ice surrounding Erik’s heart. Yet a dark force, determined to tear the young lovers apart, must be vanquished before their sweet midsummer nights can turn into a sweet forever.
Midsummer Sweetheart is the second book of the Heart of Montana series by Katy Regnery. I loved this book so much that I hated for it to end!
The Heart of Montana series is set in a small town, so these are characters you can easily relate to. Katrin has been living in fear because of her ex-fiance. Erik has sworn off of committed relationships in order to protect himself from a broken heart. But the moment Erik and Katrin meet there is instant attraction. It’s an attraction they try to ignore. I loved the way they flirted with each other and I really enjoyed how the author included the text messages they sent to each other:
“PS, no playing doctor” – Erik
“See you Sunday.
PS, don’t tell me what to do.
PPS, what kind of a girl do you think I am anyway?” – Katrin
“The kind every man wants to play doctor with” – Erik
After I read this I felt the butterflies in my stomach, my heart was racing and I had the biggest grin – which I can imagine is how Katrin felt when she received Erik’s last text message! I was completely blown away with how great this story was! This had me laughing, swooning and crying – I loved everything about this book!! Midsummer Sweetheart has romance, drama, action, comedy and family unity – which may seem a lot in one story but this is so well written that it was perfectly meshed together. I was hooked from the beginning. The more I read from Katy Regnery, the more I am impressed with her writing! Midsummer Sweetheart is my favorite (so far) from this series and I can’t wait to read the next book!
Even though this is the second book of the series it can be read as a standalone. Katy does a great job of including small bits of the first book, By Proxy, so that you can easily follow who the characters are. But once you read Midsummer Sweetheart you’ll fall in love with the Lindstroms and you will want to go back to read the other books! I highly recommend this book to everyone!!
