I'm Ready to Pack my Bags for Montana
I must say that I was a bit overwhelmed by the roundup of over 13 named characters in chapter one. But by the end of chapter one I was roped into the plot line. It became more evident that each of the four main characters - Nick, Cole, Maggy and Piper ¿ were attempting to run their own agendas. Yet God was intertwining their lives to accomplish His purposes. To steer them into a future and a hope. Dark secrets were unveiled. Bad choices were redeemed. Forgiveness and sacrificial love happened. Susan so vividly brought to life the beautiful Montana landscape and the workings of a ranch that I want to pack my bags and visit. The suspense and romance captured my attention and I am looking forward to the next installment in the Noble legacy series.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Don't Miss Nick
Reclaiming Nick is another great book from the pen of Susan May Warren. The mystery of Nick's ten-year absence kept me reading for answers. Reclaiming Nick has it all: ranching, romance, and mystery. Don't miss Nick!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I love Susan May Warren!
This book kept me up until 4 a.m. reading. It's an interesting story about a prodigal son returning home. I like a few others of Susan May Warren's books better. But, you can't go wrong with God, cowboys, and romance all in one book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This story focuses on a host of broken and hurting characters who have to work together to save a ranch in Montana. Nick Noble left the ranch ten years earlier after an explosion with his family. He's come home to prevent his former best friend from inheriting half the ranch under Nick's father's will. Piper Sullivan, an investigative reporter, is chasing Nick to prove that he murdered a woman instead of her brother who was sent to jail for that murder. She's signed on as the cook for the summer...only problem is she's a vegetarian on a cattle ranch who can't cook biscuits let alone Rocky Mountain Oysters. Throw in Nick's high school love Maggy who is now married to his former best friend Cole, a dozen lies and misunderstandings, and you have a family in need of healing. This book is filled with characters that I cared about. They were three-dimensional with the kind of struggles that kept me thinking about the book when I wasn't reading. The setting was also rich and interesting. In the end Nick and Piper discover that a prodigal can come home, but the journey to that point is filled with twists and turns that I sometimes thought they wouldn't navigate -- but it's a romance, so there is a happily ever after. At least until the sequel comes out.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

WOW! Another great Susan May Warren story. Nick, Piper, Cole, Maggy, Stephanie, and CJ are intriguing characters. The plot is interesting and keeps you guessing to the end. Nick and Piper try to find forgiveness as they work to keep the Noble farm. You can see the Montana wide sky and smell the sage. Redemption is woven into the story. I can't wait for the next book in the series.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

wonderful inspirational family drama
Loaded with guilt and remorse that he never retuned before his estranged father died, Nick Noble knows he must go home now that his late dad¿s lawyer Saul Lovell arrives to explain the will. He is outraged that his dad left any of the Montana Silver Buckle Ranch to his once best friend Cole St. John and that his sister Stefanie is converting the spread to a dude ranch. He plans to contest the will and to prevent Stefanie¿s plans. Reporter Piper Sullivan believes that Nick abused his law enforcement duties when he arrested her brother Jimmy McPhee for the murder of Jenny Butler. Nick is no longer a cop and Jimmy has been exonerated after five years in prison. However, while Jimmy has vanished, Piper plans to prove that Nick used her sibling to hide his killing of Jenny. She gets work as a cook on the ranch while his neglect of the past decade towards family and friends catch up to him. As the undercover reporter and her prey fall in love, he begins to learn the truth of just how many mistakes and hurt he left behind ten years ago. --- The first Noble Legacy tale is a wonderful inspirational family drama starring a terrific cast who do not agree on much except that loved ones are everything. The lead pair is a strong coupling as she has every reason to hate him, but instead falls in love with him she knows once she reveals the truth he will feel betrayed and not trust her. Other subplot spins seem almost soap opera, but Susan Warren May shows her writing skill by making them excel. Fans of contemporary tales will enjoy RECLAIMING NICK as he learns from piper what really matters in life. --- Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
