Scenic Ouray, nestled in a bowl surrounded by thirteen-thousand-foot peaks. This beautiful ranching area in mountainous Colorado is where this book takes place, the first one in this series. Each book is about one of five brothers so lots more great reading ahead. This is Andrew and Carly's story. Whenever I read a Love Inspired book I always feel happy. I know any conflict will gently be resolved and each book has a faith filled message through out.

Their Ranch Reunion

Mindy Obenhaus

THEIR RANCH REUNION is the first book in the Rocky Mountain Heroes series and I can't believe I waited so long to read this collection of funny and romantic stories. The story takes place in Ouray, Colorado and Mindy Obenhaus describes it so beautifully that I am ready to pack my bags and go see it for myself. Each book in the series deals with one of the five Stephens brothers. All unmarried and very very hot! What more could you ask for right?

Their Ranch Reunion is the first book in the Rocky Mountain Heroes series and is the first book that I have read by Mindy Obenhaus. It will definitely not be the last. I enjoyed visiting the town of Ouray and meeting the Stephens family. Carly Wagner grew up there, was married, took over the family B&B, had a child, was widowed and is now trying to save her business by expanding. When her beloved neighbour died, she left her home to Carly and her grandson Andrew. They each want to buy the other ...more

This sweet small town with its cutesie B&B and local ranching community is the perfect setting for a second chance romance! Baked goods and cowboy/builders are a wonderfully delightful combination!

Obenhaus delivers a warm and cozy environment with authentic characters and relatable emotions and situations. I'd love to visit Ouray and strike up a friendship Carly, Andrew, and all their friends!

It’s so much fun to discover a “new-to-me” author to enjoy! Their Ranch Reunion is the first book in the Rocky Mountain Heroes series and is the first book that I have read by Mindy Obenhaus. It will definitely not be the last.

I enjoyed this second chance love story so much! Carly and Andrew were such likable characters and Carly’s daughter, Megan, was a very realistic and precious child. I liked watching as Carly and Andrew grew close to each other once more, many years after their first relati

The best thing about Andrew is that he has four unmarried brothers who all deserve a happily ever after of their own so this is the first book in a series -- sqqqquuueeeaaaallllll!!!!

A touching reunion story that explores the complications -- and joys -- that come with second chances. Reconnecting after years, Carly and Andrew still find themselves on opposite sides of nearly everything. Still, it isn't hard to fall back into love which only leaves the same conflicts to deal with.

This story featured the Stephens family, Carly and her daughter Megan. Carly and Andrew use to be best friends (and dated!) in high school but drifted apart after college. Carly stayed home in the small Colorado town, married, had a child, and then became widowed. 20 years later Andrew comes home to start renovations on his Grandmothers Livie's house which is ne

Beginning her Rocky Mountain Heroes series and introducing the Stephens brothers, Mindy Obenhaus delivers two sweet romances in Their Ranch Reunion and The Deputy’s Holiday Family. Readers of the genre will not be disappointed with the stories.

Their Ranch Reunion reunites Andrew Stephens with his high school sweetheart, Carly Wagner. The cause of their rekindling relationship is a house they both inherited, which naturally leads to complications and drama. Will this second chance be just what th

I love it when a series draws us into the life of a family, letting each one shine in their own story as we get to know and care about them. Their Ranch Reunion by Mindy Obenhaus begins just such a series – and best of all, it’s about five unattached brothers and their father, so there’s lots to anticipate.

I discovered this series when reading book #3, Her Colorado Cowboy, and immediately wanted to read the previous two stories. Their Ranch Reunion begins the series with the story of Andrew and

Their Ranch Reunion is the first book in the Rocky Mountain Heroes series by Mindy Obenhaus. I was captivated every chapter, this is my first time reading any of Mindys books and I'm looking forward to continuing with this series.

Carly runs a B&B in the town of Ourely she has a young daughter from her late marriage. When she goes next door she comes across her first love Andrew in hopes of buying his half of his grandmothers home.

Of course
Their Ranch Reunion is the first story that I’ve read by Mindy Obenhaus. I really enjoyed the setting. I used to live in Grand Junction and Denver, so I’m familiar with all of the towns. I liked the writing style and was drawn into the story fairly quickly.

I really liked Andrew and his brothers and I’m looking forward to reading their books - especially Noah’s. I also liked Carly’s daughter, Megan, she was written realistically and really added to the story. I loved what she did at the end of t

Mindy Obenhaus has written a fabulous first book to her Rocky Mountains Heroes series in Their Ranch Reunion. This story is about first love and heartbreak, a rekindling of that love, and completely falling in love. It’s about making hard decisions in life. It’s about leaving and pursuing an opportunity in another city or staying and pursing an even better one at home. This is a sweet contemporary romance story that readers will thoroughly enjoy.

Carly grew up in the mountain town whose Bed & Breakfast needs a much needed expansion.

What a fun book and a great start to a promising series! This is the first book by Mindy Obenhaus that I have read and I am hooked! Set in present-day Ouray, Colorado, the author introduces the reader to the charm of a small town and a family that has deep roots in the town. The writing is easy- to-follow, the plot moves at a good pace, the characters are flawed and absolutely lovable, and second chances as well as grace abound as the characters develop and mature.

This was my first read by both author Mindy Obenhaus and the Love Inspired line of books and it was everything I look for in a great story: perfectly clean, a sweet love story, and characters learning to trust God with their lives. I loved Their Ranch Reunion and I would love to read the rest of the series. Because it is short, we don't learn much about each of the characters, but are given a small glimpse into their lives. I love when children have a place in the story. Their innocence and hone ...more

Returning to Ouray was supposed to be temporary for Andrew Stephens, but a change to his grandmother’s will which he wasn’t aware of, a fire, and an illness keep him plenty busy. And then there’s his high school sweetheart.

Carly’s dream is to extend her family’s bed and breakfast but in order to do that, she has to convince Andrew Stephens to sell her his half of his grandmother’s house.

Andrew is such a gentleman when it comes to Carly! He’s considerate and protective and, of course, attracted.

I flew through this one and I really enjoyed it. I was not really sure if I would love it, but I did and I have already added the rest of the series to my TBR. I love that the rest of the series follows the other Stephens brothers. I cannot wait to see where their stories go as well.

Despite the fact that I did not love "Her Colorado Cowboy", this book was really good. It was super cute. The characters interacted in a realistic way that drew me in. Megan was fun to read about with all of her antics.
I was a bit surprised about how little time was spent restoring the Carly's B&B. Carly spends most of her time over at Andrew's family's ranch caring for foals and Andrew's sick father, Clint. Clint was such a handful and quite the character. I had to laugh at some of the things h

I don’t always enjoy short reads...or romance reads. This book however was enjoyable. I liked the characters ( I’ll admit the little girl in this book stole my precious!), the plot was Hallmark type but still enjoyable, and the story was quite well done.

This was my first book by this author...and probably not my last. Really thought the book was sweet and well written.

I enjoyed this book because you could feel the love, taste the fresh-baked cookies, and smell the wood burning! It was so vividly descriptive that you felt you were part of the story. The plot had some great surprises with a wonderful love story of family and old friends. It kept my interest so that I didn’t want to put it down, and at the end, I even wanted to know what else might happen with these characters...

Their Ranch Reunion is a heart-warming story of second chances. It features widowed mother Carly Wagner whose B & B is in need of space to expand. When she inherits the house next door, she quickly makes plans for the much needed expansion. There is just one kink in the works – her former best friend and high school sweetheart Andrew Stephens is joint heir to his grandmother’s property.

I rather did enjoy this read! I read Her Colorado Cowboy before this one and wasn't very impressed, so I didn't have very high expectations for Their Ranch Reunion. It turned out to be an overall fun, fluffy, and lighthearted read.

Andrew and Carly, the main characters, face a large difficulty when they both have claims on half of a house, and both are too stubborn to let the other one buy their half. Their romance was quite unrealistic and very fluffy--which doesn't bother me, but I know that it

I read these books out of order, so it was fun to see how the Stephens family started out! I loved the interaction between Carly, a widowed single mother, and Andrew, her first love. When Andrew comes home to fix up his grandmother's house and sell it, he's shocked to discover that he's only partial owner of the property. When poor Carly's home catches fire and requires repair, she and her daughter move into the inherited house. Romance and tension ensue, of course! It was both adorable and frus ...more

I enjoyed the start of Ms. Obenhaus' latest series. Andrew, Carly, and her daughter Megan are all likable characters that I found something to connect with. I loved that there was a twist I wasn't expecting fairly early in the story, taking it in a different direction from where I had predicted. The setting in Ouray sounds so beautiful that I started Googling it so I could see some photos. If I ever get to CO, it's definitely on my list to visit.

I really enjoy Christian Romance stories and this book was no exception.

Carly and Andrew were High School sweethearts. They lost track of each over the years. A set of circumstances, mainly finding out Carly has inherited a house and it happens to be next door to Andrew's house, brings them back to each others lives. Carly is a widowed, single mom and is running a B&B. The property is also been heired to Andrew. Will they rekindle their love or will they allow barriers to get in their way??
