Texas Rancher Trilogy by Misty M. Beller
goodreads | amazon | bookdepository | bookbub
The Rancher Takes a Cook
The acrid air was thick and hazy as nineteen-year-old Anna Stewart struggled to sit up in bed.
The Ranger Takes a Bride
Alejandra Diaz picked her way across the rocky ground, a band of dread tightening her chest.
The Rancher Takes a Cowgirl
“Boss, you better come quick, but you’re not gonna like it.“
What a lovely trio of redemptive, feel-good stories! I completely enjoyed getting to know all the folks on this small-town Texas ranch. These stories have just the right amount of spunk and action to liven up the sweetly romantic plots. Settings and cultures are figuratively painted across each chapter with vibrant brushstrokes. I’m a big fan of Misty M. Beller’s Mountain series so I’ve had my eyes on this Texas series for a while now and it does not disappoint!
In my opinion, the narrations for the series are fair to good. For me, the first book’s performance is best followed by the third book with the second book starting out a bit rough but improving in quality as the story progressed.
I borrowed these audiobooks through an Audible Escape free trial. I was under no obligation to post a review. The opinions expressed are my own.

They sound like Great reads. Thanks for sharing.
My pleasure, Alicia!
I just read Hope’s Highest Mountain! Great book!
My first line is from The Rebel Bride by Shannon McNear:
September 20, 1863 Battle of Chickamauga, Northern Georgia
Not for the first time, Joshua Wheeler wondered if he’d descended into hell.
I completely agree and Shannon McNear is one of my newest favorites!
I haven’t read those yet but I’ve loved the Misty Beller books I’ve read so far so I need to check them out!
Today I shared the first line from End Game by Rachel Dylan but I’m currently reading Daughter of Rome by Tessa Afshar so I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (22) here: “Like a loose thread in an unfinished weaving, Priscilla’s well-ordered world unraveled by virtue of one capricious judgment.” I’m absolutely LOVING it so far! Hope you have a wonderful weekend with lots of quality reading time! 🙂
I definitely recommend them! Happy reading, Becca!
Happy Friday! My first line is from “Because of Him” by Kimberly Rae Jordan:
“Kieran Sutherland only just managed to keep from lifting his arm and elbowing the detective seated beside him in the face.”
I enjoy her stories and need to read another soon! Happy reading, Becky!
Happy Friday! ?
On my blog I’m sharing the first line from Veiled in Smoke by Jocelyn Green: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2020/01/03/first-line-friday-117/. Currently I’m reading An Uncommon Woman by Laura Frantz. It’s AMAZING!!!
“The field of winter wheat was sun-drenched and silent, the heated August air already blackened by buzzards.”
Hope you have a great weekend filled with awesome reading time. ?❤?
Woop woop! Happy reading, Nicole!

Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing the first lines from The Bright Unknown by Elizabeth Byler Younts: “I’m not sure whom I should thank–or blame–for the chance to become an old woman.”
Oooo! She’s on my tbr!

Love that story!
I love her Heart of the Mountains series.
This is the book I’m reading now (how it starts):
In Black and White by MaryAnn Diorio
Why black or white?
Why look at skin?
What will it take to stop the sin of stigmatizing God’s creation with unjust discrimination?
Why is it that we fail to see
the truth that love is color-free, that hatred only blinds the heart and keeps both black and white apart?
Why not proclaim we are the same
in joy and laughter grief and pain?
Why not look past the outer skin to find the spirit deep within?
Oh, would that we would rise above the pettiness of gross self-love,
and look beyond the outer man to find the brother deep within.
What a wonderful beginning! Thank you for sharing, Natalya!
