Wit and wisdom shine through in this feel-good tale of love gone right. If you're looking for a happy ending, there's one in the pages of Big Sky Bachelor, book two in the Montana Hearts series by newcomer Lesley Ann McDaniel.

All Janessa Greene wants is to attend a prestigious cooking school in Seattle not find love in her Montana home town. Why then is it so hard to ignore Micah, a handsome cowboy with a mysterious past?

Like Lights, Cowboy, Action, the first novel in this series, Big Sky Bache

Janessa Greene just wants to get out of small town America. A trip to Le Cordon Bleu chef school is her ticket out. Only the letter of acceptance doesn't seem to be finding its way to her. She's working hard to make her dreams come true.

Great follow up on Lights, Cowboy, Action!
There are stories and there are well told stories. This one is well told. From the very beginning of this book, the well crafted characters of Janessa and Micah pulled me into this story. Each had something driving them. Janessa was heading full steam to culinary school in Seattle. Micah was heading as far away from his successful rodeo career as he could get. The collision of these two delightful people threw them both off course and we get to go along

For Janessa the grass does look a lot greener on the other side of the fence. She wants out of her hometown, and wants to go to school in Seattle. Every cent she earns is being put aside towards that goal.
Micah Brody is in a way running from his past. He ends up working for Janessa's brother Adam, on the family ranch! Sparks fly, but he has had his fill of groupies from his Rodeo career. Can any kind of a relationship be forged between these two?
There are many human challenges here, such as, f

Big Sky Bachelor was my favorite book by Lesley Ann McDaniel so far! The main characters Janessa and Micah captivated me right off the bat with Janessa’s head strong determination to get out of Thornton Springs and pursue a cooking career while avoiding distractions in the form of romance while Micah struggles to sort out his feelings about his father, career and faith. This book has many insights that readers can relate to like loss of a loved one, pursuing dreams, encountering obstacles and ...more

Janessa Green wants to escape Thornton Springs and go to culinary school. Micah Brody wants to escape his fame and fortune as a champion on the rodeo circuit and simply have a normal life. And when these two square off, sparks fly.

Once again, McDaniel takes us on a fun journey with relatable characters and wonderful writing that will pull you into the story and not let you go until you've turned the last page. Her sense of humor shines through and the gentle message is woven intrinsically throug

I’ve read a lot of Heartsong Presents books in my time, and I have to say that this is one of my absolute favorites!
I totally adore Janessa and Micah.
I love to encounter a sort of stubborn character like Janessa in fiction, it makes for a fun reading experience.
The author tackled some really deeper issues in this book that really touched me, very insightful!
And the ending….ahhh, you don’t want to miss it!!!
