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

“It’s paradise…
The mountains, the small town, the people. I couldn’t love it more.”

I have really wanted to delve into a Kristen Proby book for ages now so when an opportunity arose for me to read her I just jumped at the chance and I really enjoyed it. I love when you discover a new to you author and the book is so good you can’t wait to read her whole back catalogue of books and also anything else she comes up with in the future. This one is definitely worth checking out.

I quite enjoyed this book because of the hero, he was a good one and very patient with the heroine.

~No OW/OM drama.
~Little to nothing on their past sexual life. They both dated during the 3 years that they had know each other. Hero said that he didn't date that much.
~No epilogue. #wheresmyepilogue. #epiloguewhorehere.

Looking forward to next books in the series.

I was a big fan of the Big Sky series when it came out so I was ecstatic to learn that there was going to be a new release in the series. I was a little nervous that I wouldn't remember anything about the previous book but pretty much everything came back to me as soon as I started reading. There wasn't too much said about the past characters' stories so I didn't need to remember those and the descriptions for the town were very well done so that brought it all bac
I didn't like this book. I know I'm in the minority here, but I don't care. It's my opinion after all and I have to get it out. Beware of spoilers!

My first issue was their "3 year separation" time. It was just too ridiculous. They lost all this time. And for what? The Hero makes assumptions on a HUG. It's really stupid. He could have stayed and found out about the man. The Hero is a cop for christ sake, he has the resources and the mind for that. He just left the Heroine at the hospital without

4 'Small Town Love' Stars

Awww, Kristen Proby did it again! Small town romance at its finest!

I've been dying for this new series, ever since it was first announced, specially considering Love Under The Big Sky is one of my all time KP favs.

She’s the calm in the storm for me.

His lips are just… wow. I want them on me. All over me. Every fucking inch.

Hannah and Brad were drawn to each other from the first time they set eyes on each other, but circumstances led to a misunderstanding, that together w

Brad is beyond scrumptious!! New BBF on deck, ladies. He's sweet, caring, sexy, and sexy AF. Oh and did I mention he's the chief of police. Hot guys in a uniform = YUMMY!

So now that you know what I absolutely loved, let's cover the rest. Hannah and Brad together are super cute. The characters are very well done. I enjoyed Hannah's quirks and beliefs. Honestly, this has been a highlight for me with the last two Kristen Proby books I've read. The heroines are self aware, smart, and not readily fit

4 - "You’re not so bad with words, you know…" Stars!

Kristen Proby begins her new Big Sky Series, by giving us Dr. Hannah Malone’s story. And Charming Hannah to the nth degree is exactly what yummy Police Chief Brad Hull does.

The mountains, the small town, the people. I couldn’t love it more…

If you, like I loved the authors Love Under the Big Sky series you are going to happily jump into this one, as its essentially an offshoot of it, same town of Cunningham Falls, and as any seasoned Proby r
I think I’ll just write down my damn review in my own space and stop shoving my opinion down other people’s throats!!!

Take it from someone who actively deals with anxiety. It is really not easy to seek help. It’s easy to figure out when you read it in books, but in real life, not so much. As the heroine pointed out, it is embarrassing and no one wants to feel embarrassed. That is why a mental illness is different to physical one. It’s invisible. That’s why a therapy is necessary along with a sup
"3 Stars"

This book was nice and I enjoyed it enough. But it wasn't what I was expecting. The story-line was nice and easy. There were some lovely and sweet moments during the book which I really loved. Brad and Hannah were really great together, and most importantly they brought peace to each other when they were a hot mess with their issues.

But this book wasn't as good as the previous I have read from this author at least for me. I love KP and I have read a few of her books and some of the the

“There’s no going back. I’m hers.”

There is no better feeling like escaping into a Kristen Proby romance! She manages to sweep me right off my feet within the first few pages. Time and time again, her characters amaze me! Her world delights me! Her writing soothes my soul to the very core! Incredible writing, low angst, and high romance…just how I LOVE IT! Charming Hannah was a beautiful, sexy, and soul-soothing romance that I couldn’t put down…not even for a second! Hannah and Brad were so d

Looking for a feel good kind of romance then Charming Hannah by Kristen Proby is the book for you. It’s been awhile since I read a book from Kristen Proby and so it felt good to read a love story that was centered on small town romance. I honestly think the simplicity and low angst is what makes this book stands out. The characters just had to get their timing right and from then on Proby made a romance that made you heart burst with so

Shelves: boring

Just couldn't read this anymore, and I tried I really tried.
I liked maybe two of Kristen Proby books, and those one were one of her first, and after that things just got... well- boring.
Everything felt flat and dull so much that I got headache.
There really wasn't anything that would keep me reading this, not the characters not the plot.

I don't know, I feel like she doesn't have any ideas anymore and just rewrite her books over and over again, all characters feel the same.
2 1/2 "It's me, not you..." Stars!

I'm so sad to say this one didn't really work for me. I usually love Kristen Proby's big nosey family/friends, mostly sweet, low angst, highly sexy romances. But this time, I never got vested in Brad and Hannah. It seems to me nothing really happen in this book. The drama is always low for KP, and I like that, but... 😕

Kristen Proby is an author I know, when I pick up one of her titles, I am going to enjoy it.

This title was no exception. I enjoyed the development of the relationship between Brad and Hannah, the supporting characters were present, but not overwhelming, which was nice...especially in the first in the series, as these tend to be distractingly heavy with secondary characters. I liked that they were both allowed to be successful and that their

Wow, Charming Hannah blew me out of the water! I'll start off w/the fact that I am a HUGE Kristen Proby fan, I love all of her books and always leave me with a smile. Charming Hannah is just like that, but even more. I haven't ever been able to say I have a favorite character of Kristen's... but Hannah is now my favorite. She is so REAL!! I seriously feel like she could be my best friend. She has daily struggles that many women can relate with and you will often find yourself laughing and saying ...more

Charming Hannah is a lovely start to the new series by Kristen Proby.
From the first few pages I was drawn in, I enjoyed the storyline, it was entertaining, sweet, romantic and beautifully written. I found all the characters easy to connect with and they all added to my overall enjoyment.

Hannah and Brad are strong, smart, likable characters that won my heart with their kindness, their humor and their honesty. These two have that special something most of us are looking for and they bot

Brad Hull was born and raised in Cunningham Falls, Montana, and is now the new Police Chief. He is charming, quiet, hot, strong, and sweet. But his job is taxing and he has also seen things that deeply affect him. Hannah Malone is a transplant to this town, but has made it her home. She is an OB GYN and a complete work-a-holic. She is ruled by her anxiety and fears at times, and has a hard time relaxing.

She caught his eye a few years ago, but they missed the chance to fully connect. But now, Bra

Charming Hannah is the first in a new trilogy from Kristen Proby an author whose books I have truly come to look forward to reading… this one does not disappoint!

Set in Montana it tells the story of Hannah Malone one of the local town doctors who relocated there a few years ago and Brad Hull the newly appointed police chief who grew up in Cunningham Falls.

Speaking of Cunningham Falls, fans of Ms Proby may remember this town from her Under the Big Sky series, Lovin

I thoroughly enjoyed this trip back to Cunningham Falls! Brad and Hannah are two of the most relatable characters dealing with work demands and personal issues. Kristen delivered this sweet and sexy story with humor and a measurable swoon factor. Kristen fans will not be disappointed! Bring on Jenna's story next!

This is a new book to one of Kristen Proby’s older series. Even though this is a stand alone, I wish that I had reread the rest of the series so that I remembered the other characters and their connections. Brad is the super sexy chief of police and Hannah is a highly anxious local OBGYN. They have waited years for the stars to align and now it’s time!!! A sweet story filled with hope and some anxiety causing drama. Definitely worth the read. An ARC was provided in exchange for an honest review.

wow Kristen has done it again - I think this is my favourite book so far. Hannah and Brad are just the most lovable couple - supporting each other through various issues and always bringing out the best in one another as well as the hot stuff! the books is written beautifully and I just want to move to Cunningham falls right now ! I can not wait to read more from this series.

Life in the Big Sky country is back in full force. Hannah and Brad are setting the standards high with their long over due love affair.

Brad is pretty much every girls dream. Thoughtful, understanding, and a beast in bed. Hannah is a workaholic with a heart of gold and just a touch of sass. Together they just work, but not without their share of drama.

So excited to be back in Big Sky Country. I fell in love with this world in Kristen’s first three novels. Charming Hannah is the start of more. Mo

I loved Brad and Hannah! I don't suffer from anxiety the way that Hannah does but I have several loved ones who do and Kristen did an amazing job in letting you have a first person insight into someones life who suffers with anxiety. I have had trauma induced panic attacks and I feel like Kristen did a great job with the portrayal of someone who suffers that way. Brad and Hannah have known each other for a few years and when she 'bumps' into him one day on her way to work he squeezes a dinner da ...more

Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

I love Kristen Proby and excited to see that there is a new series. I thought this book held the same charm as I've come to expect from this author.

The story takes place in a small town centering around Hannah and Brad. She's a doctor and he's the newly appointed chief of police.
I liked the character individually and the build up to a relationship. They had a sweet and sexy romance. I appreciated that the book wasn't filled with unnecessary drama and angst in their relationship.

I was excited when I read that Kristen was writing a new series Big Sky and that we were going back to Cunningham Falls as Love Under the Big Sky is a favourite KP series of mine.

I was excited to start Charming Hannah and catching up with everyone, I remembered Hannah and Brad from the previous series.

Here is the disappointing part Brad was all right but Hannah I did not like her the more I got to know her the more annoying she got and the story struggled to keep my attention that is why it too
