"Heart of a Rancher" by Renee Andrews is the fifth book centered around Claremont, Alabama and a remarkable story.

I enjoyed that there wasn't much personal baggage that held back the interest but instead it was reasonable and logical things that threw roadblocks up. Yes this particular story took place over weeks but Dana and John had gotten to know each long before that via text, online groups and phone calls. With that history it was so easy to see them falling as quickly and sweetly as they d

Heart of a Rancher

Excellent story of a rancher who is struggling to keep the family property together and wants to turn it into a dude ranch, however he can't get a loan. When heiress, Dana Brooks, decides to invest in his venture, she didn't realize that she would fall in love.

Nice story but the religious chatter does not appeal.

I really enjoyed this story. The drama was minimum and the plot appealing, how could you not fall in love with John and Dana. Very sweet and romantic and yes, inspirational. Here you will take a ride to the country side and the big city but the heart always goes back to the country of inspiration. I won this book on Goodreads, First Read Giveaway. Thank you, Darlene Cruz

I've stopped reading love-inspired stories for a while because I read them so much that I wore the love stories genre out. I picked back up on it with "Heart of a Rancher." I was not disappointed...enjoyed every page I read.

I loved it! Very sweet, romantic and moral. Great description and I loved that it was faith-based. Great!
