Published by Ampersand Enterprises on February 6th 2018
Genres: Contemporary Romance
From New York Times Bestselling author, Kristen Proby, comes the first in an all-new trilogy in her beloved Big Sky Series!
Hannah Malone loves her new town. Despite living in Cunningham Falls for five years, she’s still considered a “move in” by most of the locals, and that doesn’t bother her in the least. She’s the “new girl”, and she hasn’t regretted it for one day. This town is her sanctuary. Her home. The one place she finally fits in and feels safe after a lifetime of being different and running from the memories and a past so far away it can’t haunt her anymore.
As the newly appointed police chief, Brad Hull has the responsibility to keep his citizens safe and to maintain order. His roots in this town are deep—five generations deep, to be exact. Cunningham Falls, Montana is his town, and being a cop and protecting what’s his is his passion. Everything’s running like clockwork until a sassy redheaded doctor moves in and disrupts the order—and Brad’s focus.
She’s not just beautiful, funny, and strong. Hannah’s everything he’s been looking for in a woman. The chemistry is undeniable, and the heat in the bedroom is off the charts. Brad knew the minute he met Hannah that she was the one for him. He’s tenacious in his pursuit of her. But when the past catches up with Hannah, will Brad be able to protect her and their hearts?
While the ladies agreed that they usually love Kristen Proby, they also agreed that Charming Hannah was not their favorite by Proby. Others, who were new to Proby, really enjoyed it and felt they would read other books by Proby, especially considering the high praise. The biggest criticism was that the heroine is a doctor, and yet she has panic attacks and feels she’s dying. It’s like her knowledge as a doctor actually makes her anxiety worse, which was a problem for some readers. Others heartily disagreed and thought this was something they loved about the book because they felt that anxiety or panic attacks are not logical and her being a doctor would have no bearing on her ability to logic her way out of them.
Everyone loved the dog and the felt the story had a great small town element to it. Overall they loved the characters, the playful feel of the story, the realistic quality, and Proby’s writing style. Those who had more of her books said this was actually a spin off of another series, giving a fun treat to those who had read the other series, but not at all losing those that hadn’t. Everyone agreed they will read more.
