Linda Bradley's Montana Bound Series!

A warm welcome to Linda Bradley~
 Publishing my Montana Bound Series has been a dream come true.
Little did I know that writing these books would open so many doors. I’ve met many incredible readers, writers, and friends along the way. This adventure brought me back to a place that I remembered as a child from one of my family’s summer road trips. I remember telling myself not to forget the blue sky and now I know why.
My first trek back to Montana took me to Bozeman and the Gallatin Valley with my grown son, Trevor. Remembering that first breath of fresh air gives me goose bumps when I think about the sage, the wildflowers, and the foal that followed on my son’s heels as he ran for shelter in the pouring rain. That horse nuzzled up to my son like a long-lost friend, welcoming him home.
As a youngster I rode English and occasionally western and the riding in Montana rekindled my love for a pastime that I grew apart from. Riding to the ridge and meandering through a riverbed are magical when you’re on horseback.
My current release, Maggie’s Montana holds a special place in my heart as it was the last book my mom read in the winter of her life. She loved reading and read everything I wrote. I believe this was her favorite of the three books in this series. I can never thank her enough for everything that she has given me and even though she dances among the angels in heaven, she will be the voice in my head and the love in my heart.

"I loved the first book in the series. This is women's fiction with a delightful voice and cast of characters. Maggie continues her story with the same eccentric cast of characters and a new adventure to grasp. If she can just let go of her fears. I love the 'feel' of this book." -Susan B.
