By Proxy ( Heart of Montana #1) by Katy Regnery



*Received from author for an honest review*
Three starts ( I liked it)
This is the first I ready by Katy Regnery.  Ms Regnery presented two characters brought together by very unusual circumstances.  Jenny Lindstrom is a proxy for one of her dearest friends.  Sam Kelley is from Chicago but travels to Montana to stand in for his good friend as well.  Both Sam and Jenny are proxies. 

First, I really liked the creative storyline.  These are two very different people brought together because they are doing a favor for their mutual friends.  Jenny and Sam have very different life’s.    

 Jenny lives in a small town in Montana and Sam is from Chicago.
Although they are mutually drawn to each other they realize that their relationship could never work.  Sam starts to explore his feelings for Jenny the more time he spends with her.  He realizes that she is nothing like his past relationships.  Jenny is shocked into reality when he calls her “bitter”.  She realizes that she does not make the best impression on Sam at their first meeting. 
This was not a very hot and steamy romance but more of a sweet and romantic story of two very different people brought together by unique circumstances.  I don’t want to give away the ending but it does not disappoint.  One of my favorite parts of this book was how vividly the author described Montana and the people that live in this small town.  I really enjoyed the story and am looking forward to reading the next book by Katy Regnery “The Christmas Wish (Heart of Montana,1.5)
