An actor in the closet, a sheriff in love, and memories that won’t stay hidden.
Jordan Darby is known as the King of Christmas. The star of eight made-for-TV Christmas movies, the leading man who always gets his girl. Filming at Crooked Tree Ranch in Montana, in the ice and snow, Jordan is fighting to make a go of his new company and dealing with fears of exposure over one huge secret. After all, who the hell would buy into him being a romantic straight lead if rumors about him being gay were proven to be true?
Sheriff Ryan Carter is advising on the new movie being made at Crooked Tree. He hoped this would be one day of work and nothing more. Until, that is, he meets the hero. But while Jordan is sexy, he’s also very much stuck in the closet—everything that Ryan doesn’t need in his life. And then lust becomes part of the equation, and Ryan’s quiet life is thrown into turmoil.
Their story unfolds against the chaos that overtakes the ranch, with Adam regaining memories that terrify him and make him look at Justin differently, and Justin leaving the ranch to make things right. Only through trusting in love and friendship can Justin and Adam learn to look to the future instead of letting the past destroy everything. But will they ever see clearly enough to do that?

Snow in Montana is in multiple views but well-written with scene changes labeled, so you know who's view you are getting. It is n mostly Jordan, an actor, Ryan the sheriff, Justin, and Adam from the previous books and residents of Crooked Tree Ranch.
I liked that we had the freshness of Ryan and Jordan, a sweet building romance between the hot Sherriff and Ironically, a romance actor and the contrast of the drama between Adam and Justin.
Adam is having nightmares, slowly remembering his ordeal but in them Justin is there front and center, causing fear and friction. Justin can't believe his best friend and first love would ever think he would hurt him or leave him like that. This drama also causes friction between Ethan and Adam and Adam's dad, Justin and Ethan as well. (Justin and Ethan are brothers and have a share of the ranch.)
So as you see, you have the drama. Ryan and Jordan's story is more sexy and sweet. Jordan is presumably the straight actor in lots of made for TV Christmas romances. He and his brother have started their own company, so eventually, in a few years, Jordan can come out and begin his life.
All in all, I was happy with the story. I will say the cover threw me off a bit. I like looking at a cover and visualizing the characters, and I had trouble seeing Ryan in either of them at six foot five and a bit broader with a soft middle( which I loved that he wasn't the perfect exercise-all- the-time bulky six-pack abs guy. I loved the realism. I was excited he had so many brothers to see they were mostly straight and that this was a wrap to the series. Is was a nice satisfying one, though.
If you like hot sheriffs, sexy actor's cowboys, snow, sweet romance a little drama and a satisfying ending you will love this one!
