Book Description

23 April 2001
Linda Lael Miller returns to an unforgettable Montana town for a very special occasion.... SPRINGWATER WEDDING Once a frontier stagecoach stop, tiny Springwater has grown and changed and entered the twenty-first century. Cattle rustlers may still be stirring up trouble, but now they're high-tech operators in a modern world. Where stagecoaches once rolled along muddy roads, the Internet is now the newest highway in town. But heartbreak is still heartbreak and love still love, and Springwater still boasts a rich legacy of joy, sorrow, and second chances -- as two childhood sweethearts discover when they rekindle a long-ago passion in the place they will always call home. Maggie McCaffrey left her fast-paced corporate job to take a chance on a more rewarding -- but riskier -- business venture: turning the dilapidated Springwater Station into a bed-and-breakfast. But Maggie didn't count on running straight into J.T. Wainwright, the hometown boy who stole her heart many years before. A tough former New York City cop, J.T. survived a grave gunshot wound and returned to Springwater to find a better way of life. Now, as deputy town marshal, he's facing off with modern-day cattle thieves who are plaguing local ranchers. Stronger than ever, J.T. seems ready for anything -- except, of course, Maggie. As Maggie's B&B begins to take root, a delightful new cast of Springwater locals passes through its doors. Maggie's parents, Kathleen and Reece, are finding that their forty-year marriage requires a little renegotiating now and then. Cindy, a teenage newlywed with a baby on the way, is learning about love and sacrifice for the first time. And town marshal Purvis Digg is turningSpringwater upside down by dating a woman he met on the Internet. As always, Linda Lael Miller enchants readers with her portrayal of the complex tangle of life and love in a small town. With her trademark sensuality and her ?air for wit, she once again brings Springwater to life -- this time, at the dawn of a new era.

3.0 out of 5 stars Springwater Wedding 22 April 2001
By Lisa Davidson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
A touching love story in dire need of better editing. One wonders, where is Miller's editor? "Wedding" features five love stories, and only one of these, a sub plot involving the heroine's parents, is fully explained and realized. The others suffer from a great loss of detail. It's as if Miller began her book well and then was rushed in the finishing. The sub plot involving the heroine's best friend? The reader hasn't a clue as to the problems in her marriage or with her fertility. The sub plot involving the young couple? Miller's skills in writing good characters makes us care for them, but we never get to find out how they feel about key dramatic points in the story. The sub plot involving the sheriff's internet romance? Once again, sweet people, but too many details are missing in the end. The hero and heroine, while seemingly decent people, we know the very least about. Of course we know they'll get together, but we're not rooting for them to do just that because the details of their earlier breakup are too vague and/or unexplained. Their one sex scene seems almost thrown in. Our heroine is prim, and we have no idea why she is willing to have sex the one time (and not others). The entire book left me scratching my head, and wondering why her editor did not do her job better. Linda Lael Miller and her fans deserve better!

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic finale to this exciting series 3 April 2001
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
On Christmas break from college, Maggie McCaffery returned home to Springwater, Montana where she tried to forge a relationship with town bad boy J.T. Wainwright. He rejected her, breaking her heart. On the rebound, Maggie marries Connor Bartholomew, but ultimately they divorce and she returns home again with plans to convert the Springwater Station into a bed and breakfast. J.T. also comes home after being shot in the line of duty as a New York police detective.

J.T. knows he blew it years ago with the only woman he ever loved and prays he has a second chance though he remains haunted by the death of his NYPD partner. However, Maggie wants nothing to do with J.T. though he still makes her heart thump out of control.

Talented Linda Lael Miller provides her fans with the romantic tale of two descendants from her popular Springwater series. The contemporary story line is fun for those readers who enjoyed Ms. Miller's nineteenth century stories. The romance is the core of the book, but a subplot involving ugly ranch incidents add unnecessary suspense to a story that reads quite well as a second chance at love novel.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice conclusion to this series... 31 Mar 2005
By ThisThatNEverything - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Although I was disappointed to jump 100+ years ahead of the other books in this series I still enjoyed this book. In this book you follow Maggie McCaffery (Jacob & June-Bug are her ancestors) & J.T. Wainwright (Scully & Evangeline are his ancestors). Maggie & J.T. grew up together in Springwater & were young lovers & eventually they split up & married others. 10 years later they both come back to Springwater to begin new lives & they re-kindle their love for one another very quickly. The beginning of this book is pretty slow but the ending is action packed. It made up for anything that I was missing at the beginning. It was nice hearing references to the other people in this series that lived a century earlier. If you have followed the Springwater series then I recommend this book if you are willing to jump to modern day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bring on the rice! 21 April 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
When you think of sequels, especially the 7th one in the series, you tend to expect a less than stellar offering. This one proves just the opposite. Not only is it a 5-star offering, it is the best in the Springwater series and the best book I've read in a year!!
"Springwater Wedding" is set in contemporary times but nicely interweaves threads of the past novels, through memorabilia, family heirlooms, historic landmarks, etc. Whether you have read the previous books or not, this book stands nicely on its own. In fact, if you read it first, you will feel compelled to go back and read the "history" in the others.
The romance is the heart of the book. It teases and excites you. The romance causes you to anticipate that each meeting of T.J. and McCaffrey will bring them closer and closer to physical and emotional love.
The characters are so well written, and so accessible immediately. You instantly care about them. You can not help but cheer them on from the beginning, straight through to the end.
T.J. is the perfect romance hero of today. Romance readers crave stories with heroes such as T.J. He's strong, well-built, a caring father, a witty and amusing pursuer, sexy and tantalizing, vulnerable and alas, willing to offer his heart on a platter, even though it may get speared and sliced apart. Women that cannot have him, love him. The one woman that can have him needs a little prodding. But honestly, I don't see how she can resist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully written -- Very highly recommended 20 Mar 2002
By C. Penn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Both Maggie McCaffey and J.T. Wainright return to Springwater, Montana to find healing and new beginnings in Linda Lael Miller's SPRINGWATER WEDDING. Maggie descends from founders June-Bug and Jacob McCaffrey. Leaving behind an ex-husband and broken dreams, Maggie plans to renovate a 19th century stagecoach inn and turn it into a bed and breakfast. She does not anticipate the love of her life, J.T., returning to Springwater at the same time she does. Despite his overtures, she desperately tries to resist him and her well-meaning, matchmaking friends.
J.T. leaves behind the death of his partner, a gunshot wound, and a divorce to become a rancher. His attempts to make the family ranch a paying proposition are threatened, however, by someone poisoning neighboring herds, cattle rustlers, and murder. His attempts at rekindling a romance with Maggie seem a bit more productive, but other issues seem to keep him frequently sidetracked. Indeed, while aiding local law enforcement, J.T. soon learns that the current crime spree leads to the town's past and includes his father's murder.
SPRINGWATER WEDDING is the seventh book in the Springwater series, providing a contemporary conclusion. The hero and heroine are descendants of the original cast, thereby providing the novel with deep roots. But do not let that dissuade new readers who want to read SPRINGWATER WEDDING as a standalone. The novel works beautifully as an independent read as well, though readers may quickly find their way to the bookstore for the remaining books of the series. Author Linda Lael Miller excels at creating novels with a strong sense of community and ancestry, as SPRINGWATER WEDDING dazzlingly demonstrates. Further, Jacob is the wounded hero at his best, with challenges and weaknesses that make him immensely appealing. Maggie years for community and family, yet fears the risk such goals require. While the reader knows that, of course, they will find up together, the journey is both pleasurable and endearing, especially with the remarkable secondary characters give the novel an added richness. Very highly recommended.
