About the Book
Author: Misty M Beller
Genre: Historical romance
Release Date: June 30, 2020
After losing her husband in the Rocky Mountain wilderness, young widow Joanna Watson is struggling to make a new home for her five-year-old son, Samuel, in the little mountain town of Settler’s Fort. When she returns home from work to find Samuel and the woman watching him missing–and the sheriff dead–she enlists a man she prays has enough experience in this rugged country to help.
Isaac Bowen wants nothing more than a quiet, invisible life in these mountains, far away from the bad decisions of his past. But he has a strong suspicion of who’s behind the kidnapping and murder, and if he’s right, he knows all too well the evil they’re chasing.
As they press on against the elements, Joanna fights to hold on to hope, while Isaac knows a reckoning is coming. They find encouragement in the tentative trust that grows between them, but whether it can withstand the danger and coming confrontation is far from certain in this wild, unpredictable land.

Love's Mountain Quest is the story of Joanna Watson and her frantic search for her five-year-old son and the young woman who was caring for him. Author Misty M. Beller vividly portrays Joanna's emotions that alter between hope, desperation, and the realization that the longer the search continues, the greater the chance is that they won't be found. All she can do is pray, believe that will God protect them, and trust that she and Isaac Bowen will be able to find Samuel and Laura. As their journey continues in the Rocky Mountains wilderness, their mutual respect blossoms into something more but Isaac has a secret from his past. Can their relationship survive if Joanna learns about his past life? Is is possible to endure the perils of this untamed territory? Will Joanna be reunited with her son and Laura?
Beller has created an exciting story with memorable characters and a wonderful faith message and she has filled it with adventure, danger, hope, and forgiveness. She also adds a sweet romance that will leave you wishing for a happy ending. If you enjoy historical Christian romance, you will definitely want to read Love's Mountain Quest.

More from Misty
Love’s Mountain Quest was one of the hardest books I’ve ever written, even though I LOVE Isaac and Joanna and their story. What made this book so hard was the fact that I wrote most of the story during my third trimester of pregnancy with our son!
Our little Matthew is our fourth baby (and first boy), so I was VERY heavy with child during the last three months I carried him, and that was the time that I’d scheduled to write Love’s Mountain Quest. Needless to say, the words were not flowing very well. My creativity was as exhausted as the rest of me! I could see Isaac and Joanna’s story in my mind, but showing it for readers using real words was the hard part.
