The Marriage Season (The Brides of Bliss County #3) by Linda Lael Miller - I gave this one 4.5

Bex made a marriage pact with her friends Hadleigh and Melody.  She married for love but her true love died in a war, he never came home.  She is busy running her fitness club making a chain of them and absolutely not interested in another marriage in spite of the pact.

A new man comes to town with two young sons and she keeps getting thrown together with Tate because the sons have made friends with her nephew.  Her friends also like throwing her into the mix. 

Linda Lael Miller has been a favorite of mine for years.  I liked this book but it didn’t throw me into love with it.  I did read it pretty quickly.  It was the last of the Brides of Bliss County, and I’ll be holding out for her next book.  I give this one a 4.5.
I had back surgery and can’t tell you why I didn’t love this as much because I read it while on pain meds.  My apologies to the author. 

I did receive this book in kindle format through Good Reads in exchange for an honest review.  Not one of my best reviews but I put it off to0 long.

Description as found on Good Reads:
Will the marriage pact be fulfilled? Return to Mustang Creek, Wyoming, with #1 New York Times bestselling author Linda Lael Miller for more Brides of Bliss County! 
Since Hadleigh, Melody and Bex—the best of best friends—entered into a marriage pact, two of them have found (and married) the men of their hearts. But Bex doesn't think she'll be as fortunate as the others. Her own first love died years ago in a faraway war, and Bex has lost hope for a happy marriage of her own. She concentrates on her business, a successful chain of fitness clubs, instead. 
Then, when single father Tate Calder comes to Mustang Creek with his two sons in tow, who befriend Bex's eight-year-old nephew, she and the handsome, aloof newcomer are constantly thrown together. But is the marriage season over? Or can a man with doubts about love be the right husband for a woman who wants it all?
