Overview

Charming Hannah (Big Sky Series #1) by Kristen Proby

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 town is her sanctuary. Her home. The one place she finally fits in and feels safe after a lifetime of being different and running from the memories and a past so far away it can't haunt her anymore.

As the newly appointed police chief, Brad Hull has the responsibility to keep his citizens safe and to maintain order. His roots in this town are deep--five generations deep, to be exact. Cunningham Falls, Montana is his town, and being a cop and protecting what's his is his passion. Everything's running like clockwork until a sassy redheaded doctor moves in and disrupts the order--and Brad's focus.

She's not just beautiful, funny, and strong. Hannah's everything he's been looking for in a woman. The chemistry is undeniable, and the heat in the bedroom is off the charts. Brad knew the minute he met Hannah that she was the one for him. He's tenacious in his pursuit of her. But when the past catches up with Hannah, will Brad be able to protect her and their hearts?

4.5 Stars for Charming Hannah, the first in a new trilogy going back to the Big Sky Series, I’m sorry to say I haven’t read that series as yet but after reading this book I will certainly be looking to find the time to read that series. Hannah Malone moved to Cunningham Falls five years ago but she is still considered a newbie by the locals but she loves her home , the one place she finally feels settled and safe. Newly appointed police officer Brad Hull has the responsibility of keeping Cunningham Falls safe for its residents but the beautiful, funny, sassy Hannah disrupts the order and his focus. The attraction is instant and the chemistry is undeniable but when Hannah’s past catches up with her will Brad be able to not only protect her but can he protect their hearts as well....... I’m in love with Cunningham Falls and it’s residents and I can assure you that you will love this book even if you haven’t read the series it’s a spin off from. The characters are sweet, funny and strong, this book is an easy read that I didn’t want to end or put down, looking forward to more from the residents of Cunningham Falls Montana.

One thing you can always count on when reading a Kristen Proby book is that her characters are relatable. Brad and Hannah are no different. Brad is the hometown boy. Steady, reliable, trustworthy and it doesn't hurt that he's smoking hot. Recently promoted to Police Chief he's busier than ever. He has zero time to start a relationship. That's until he runs into Hanna. Hannah had lived in Cunningham Falls for around 5 years. She's an OBGYN at a very successful local practice. She's on call all the time and hasn't met the right person to even tempt her to slow down...even a little bit. The up side of being busy all the time is it takes her mind away from all her anxieties. If she's hyper focused on her job all the fears are kept at bay. She battles with that little voice that exploits all her greatest fears all the time. Sometimes she beats them and sometimes.....not. Charming Hannah was a sweet sexy romance with lots of heart. It was the kind of romance that felt like a warm blanket on a cold night.....Like hugging your husband after a long tough day. It just made me happy. That's the kind of book I want to read. Reviewed by: Heather S.

Not only is this book written by one of my favorite authors, but it grabbed me on a whole other level. Hannah and I share the same disorder. Anxiety doesnt really me sense, and Proby showed this in a real way. I loved both characters and thought they were great together. I cant wait for the rest of the series.

I received a complimentary ARC from the author for review purposes. Kristen Proby is a wonderful author. I have loved every single book she has ever written. I seriously love them. She is a fantastic writer and no one writes romance like her and the characters she creates I LOVE. The only issue I have with her is that sometimes she creates these characters that while love other people's kids - they see babies as awful and never want there own. While I understand this view, I am a mom of 3 kids and I have loved every second of being a mom and I can understand the inability to have kids, but going into any relationship and saying no way and never, well I have a tough time getting into stories like that. This is one of those stories, Hannah is an OB and in this book it is portrayed as a very hard profession. She is a wonderful dr in her small town but she also is very anti having her own baby because she sees how tough it is on the body. Brad is the police chief in the town, he is also the brother of a friend of Hannah's and he has lusted for Hannah for two years before he asks her out. From their the two have a sweet and wonderful romance and I really enjoyed these together. If you are looking for a sweet and romantic story with two people whose life meshes really well then you will love this story.

Great read, couldn't put it down.

Oh my sweetness. What an incredible read. Brad and Hannah have known each other a while. She's still considered the new girl to town by the locals. He's the new police chief. She's a bit quirky. He's a whole lot of reliable. Their attraction is intense, the chemistry white hot, and they balance one another out like they didn't know they could. This is not an angsty or stressful read, unless you count Hannah's past? Even that wasn't really a cause for incredible worry only because Brad is...it. *smiles* What she does for him, how she calms him, centers him, he does the same for her. The issues she's tried to run from are non-issues because he holds her hand and grounds her. Hannah's growing trust in him, in what he says, in what he does, is beautiful to watch. He didn't give her a reason to doubt him, didn't do anything to dissuade her belief in what he promised they had and could have between them. The future was bright with possibilities if she believed in them as much as he did. If you haven't read anything by Kristen Proby, I hope you start with this one. It's perfect for a lazy afternoon read or when you're settling in for the evening. If the writing style doesn't pull you in, the characters will. Brad and Hannah are real, from their personalities to their mannerisms to their struggles to their wants and needs and desires. What a beautiful story. What beautiful writing! This is my first Kristen Proby story and I'm so glad it is. I look forward to the other books in this series, and I'll have to visit her Love Under the Big Sky series to catch up on other Cunningham Falls stories. Received from author for an honest review

I have been a fan of this author for a while. Loved all the other series and characters. The story lines have been fantastic. She makes you really care about the people. This book was not like her at all. Brad is a great guy. But Hannah is just a confusing mess of a woman. She just switches between strong and then an absolute mess. It just seems so distracting trying figure out who the author wanted her to be. And the personality swings were just so far apart that I didn’t like her at all. Will not read any further in this series. Only about 170 pages on my nook.

4 Stars I was so excited to see that Kristen Proby was returning to Cunningham Falls .I’ve previously fallen in love with her writing style, the way in which she interweaves her characters, their families, friendships lives within a series so that their stories don’t really end when you finish that final page, but continue with each additional title. Although this is the first title in the Big Sky series, it’s really a continuation of the Love Under the Big Sky series, set in Montana. Charming Hannah is a sweet, sexy story packed full of heat, heart and humour, and features OBGYN Hannah Malone, and Chief of Police Brad Hull. This pair are characters are relate-able, realistic and endearing. Their banter is fun and flirtatious, and I loved that we get updates on several favourites who have appeared in previous titles throughout the story line as well as a few new ones. Brad and Hannah are both incredibly career orientated, the both work in fields that are physically and psychologically demanding. Brad was born and raised in Cunningham Falls, and I was won over by his compassionate, charming, and patient nature. He’s very unassuming, sexy, sweet, loyal and strong. Hannah on the other hand is kind of quirky, and a tad neurotic and suffers from anxiety. A relatively new transplant to Cunningham Falls with a few personal issues, and being incredibly driven and focussed on her career she doesn’t make much time for socialising. I really enjoyed the undeniable attraction and chemistry between this pair. They have a strong connection in that they have both been impacted by what they have seen and experienced with their role within the community. I highly recommend not only this title, but the previous titles in the Love in the Big Sky series. IF you are looking for a quick and easy read full of love, laughter, and family, this is the series for you.

Cunningham Falls, a small town in Montana, is the perfect setting for Kristen Proby’s Big Sky series because its charm serves as an amazingly beautiful backdrop for a story about love, passion, and finding the ‘right’ person to soothe and calm one’s soul.   Readers will realize fairly quickly that it’s easy to be charmed by Brad Hull. He’s definitely a man’s man, but he’s also compassionate and thoughtful, and he’s not ashamed to show his weaknesses or ask for help because the nature of his position as police chief weighs on him, which makes it all the better that the woman he’s attracted to and wants to build a connection with, Hannah Malone, understands the hectic nature of his job and the amount of hours that must be put in due to his responsibility to the whole community. I do think that some readers might have a love/hate relationship with Hannah. She’s quite the over-analyzer and the fact that she always imagines the worst possible outcome in any situation is a little perplexing. It’s clear that she has issues with anxiety and can be quite irrational at times even though she’s pretty logical when it comes to other aspects of her life, but while Kristen Proby does address her quirkiness when it comes to her ‘doomsday’ perspective, I just didn’t feel like I completely understood why she was that way, especially given her profession and training. Don’t get me wrong…I know a lot of it stems from her childhood and what happened to her mother and her father’s addiction, but I didn’t that insight flushed out a bit more so I could wrap my head around how a doctor ends up with the outlook on life that Hannah has. In all the series that I’ve read by Kristen Proby, the impact of her secondary characters is always something that stands out to me. The main characters are usually surrounded by a crew of friends and family who love to razz one another but also have each other’s back throughout life’s ups and downs. That idea is wholeheartedly reiterated in Charming Hannah…so much so that I felt like I was a part of this amazing group of people, and I can’t wait to see who gets their own story and what the future holds for these couples and families. You better believe that I wouldn’t mind visiting Cunningham Falls, Montana…not only because of the bevy of attractive and passionate alpha males who reside there but also because of the town’s charm and close-knit community and the calm and beauty that seems to surround the characters in this story. The way that Kristen Proby writes Hannah and Brad’s story allows readers to feel like they are residents of Cunningham Falls witnessing one of their own, the police chief nonetheless, find a woman who calms him and allows him to just be, and even though both Hannah and Brad have insanely busy lives due to their careers, they also are able to focus on each other and remind themselves what truly matters in life. 4 Poison Apples (The Fairest of All Book Reviews)

Bring some Chief Sexypants!! This book debuts a new series, Big Sky, that starts with Brad and Hannah. It's a standalone, but for the ones that keep updated on Kristen's work (as we all should!), we saw them in the Love Under The Big Sky series and since then I wanted them to be together. Hannah is a workaholic OB/GYN and Brad is a workaholic police chief. You could think that it wouldnt work out, but that is some of the reasons they work out so great. They both understand each other, they are mature, they have crazy hours of work, a lot of responsabilities and people expects a lot from them. They are also responsible, ethical, hard workers and so loyal. Brad is an alpha male, fierce, protective, fair, willing to do anything to help. Hannah is strong, independent, selfless and always ready to save the day. She also suffers of anxiety, and the way it was written was sensitive and somehow eye opening. Together they were sexy, funny, their chemistry was really good and their sexy times was hot!! I can't wait for the next ones in the series!

*voluntarily and honestly reviewed the ARC I received from Social Butterfly PR* The blurb sounded interesting so I looked forward to reading it. It was an overall alright read, but I think maybe it just wasn't for me, and here's why. You're introduced with the pair already having the hots for each other, and they think the other is rad, hot, cool, and when they eventually start things off officially, it's a bit of a fun time, right? For some reason, I couldn't connect with the story. I loved the idea the author had, but the writing felt disconnected. It took on the fast pace that I did feel, but I thought some things were too fast, or too brushed over without delving in. The book had its moments and at times I'd think I could actually get into this, but then the moment would end and I'd continue on wondering what was it that didn't sit well with me. I think it was because the blurb made it sound like danger was coming to the small town of dreams and possibilities and when that didn't happen, I got annoyed for expecting something when I could've been concentrating on the (slow) romance that was sort of shifting into a marriage without the I love you's. The only thing I liked about this a lot was Hannah's problem. It isn't mentioned in the blurb so I won't spoil it, but I really loved that thing about her, and I'm actually a bit annoyed that it wasn't in the spotlight. Or maybe it was and the blurb was just being extremely subtle. Either way, that bit about her was the saving grace of my thoughts about this book. It was alright for me, nothing that compelled me to continue the series. I did like some of the characters and the way they interacted. If you like slow relationship builds about two people trying to find a way to keep on fitting together, check it out.

Kristen Proby has created another world I never wanted to leave. Charming Hannah is the first book her her Big Sky series. It is filled with memorable characters that made their way into my heart and I hope to visit again soon. Not only did Kristen write one stand alone story, but she integrated snippets of possible plot lines for future stories to be told. Hannah is a OBGYN in a small Montana town. She lives and breathes her job and has very little time for anything else. Aside from her best friend Drake and a few others she has met, she is permanently on-call or so it seems. That is until Police Cheif, Brad Hull charms his way into her life, one small moment at a time. This was a quick, fun read. I can't wait to see what Kristen Proby has in store for us next with this series.

This is a snuggle book for sure. A comfy chair to sit in all awhile to be lost to the words of Kristin Proby in Charming Hannah. Proby writes wonderful romances, always providing words that capture your mind and steal your heart for the taking. Bringing you light and laughter with a touch of drama to keep the story flowing. If you are familiar with the Love in the Big Sky books then you’ll recognize some crossover characters. I enjoyed reading about their continued lives and I am eager to experience some other ‘potential’ couples down the way. Hannah Malone has found a home in Cunningham Falls, Montana. Even though she has been in town for only five years, she is still the ‘new kid’ per se. As a doctor in the community, she is well liked, but keeps to herself due to some struggles related to her past. Brad Hall, Police Chief, comes from a long lineage of law enforcement and it’s ingrained to protect deep within his blood. Ever since Hannah came into town his eyes have been set on her, however, years have past without asking her out, but now he’s done waiting. He takes his chance. As their impeccable chemistry escalate, Brad has a earning to protect Hannah from past trauma that he encounters, but can both their hearts take the heat? A compassionate and exceedingly well tale the capitalizes on one who lives with anxiety. Proby’s words are poetic to the conditions for Hannah’s struggles. I’m impressed with her mature characters; both in professions that are challenging, but Proby pairs them very well. Be ready to be charmed through and through. 4 Stars

One of Kristen Proby’s most incredible talents is to create characters and locations you absolutely fall in love with. Hannah, Brad, and the community of Cunningham Falls are no exception. Hannah Malone, Cunningham Falls OB/GYN, lives in a world that is content and controlled. But she can’t help notice the small town’s chief of police, Brad Hull when they end up in an accident and exchange numbers. Brad Hull had his eye on the intriguing doctor years ago but didn’t do his investigative work quite right; he thought she was taken. Not giving up on this second chance, he quickly insinuates his way into her hectic life with ease. As you can imagine it does to people with professions of these kind, life throws daily stress their way. I was impressed how this couple grew from the trials of day-to-day when that kind of pressure can cause the demise on so many new relationships. And while tested, it’s the internal struggles they face that will be the greatest challenge. This book is entirely standalone. Although I would be remiss in saying you really should read Josh, Ty and Zach when you get a chance to add to the richness of your Cunningham Falls experience. You’ll run into Grace and some new characters who you hope Ms. Proby intends on writing into future books.

Oh such a wonderful, wonderful story! As this is part of the Big Sky series, you do not have to have read the other stories to enjoy this one(I urge you thought to read the others because they are really good too). This is just a wonderful, take-time-off-from-doing-anything-on-the-weekend read.

Charming Hannah is the first in a trilogy of books set in Cunningham Falls, even though some of characters may appear in each book, each book is a complete story and can be read as standalone. Police Chief Brad Hull or” Chief Sexy Pants” is intent on charming Hannah the red headed sexy doctor, into his life, and that’s all he can think about. When they finally get together their chemistry is molten Hot. It is a great to read an adult relationship where there are no silly misunderstandings. Brad will not let Hannah push him away when she get the anxiety attacks that plaque her life. He won’t be pushed away, he shows Hannah how much he cares and holds her through each one helping her through them. When we first meet them they are both workaholics, as Brad became Chief of Police and Hannah is a Doctor an OB/GYN and works all the time with very little time left over for a personal life. I loved meeting this great couple who gradually learnt to let another person in their lives. So this book follows Hannah and Brad as they learn they can have the life they want together. I loved reading about Cunningham Falls and the community that live there. This also part of the big sky series. The surroundings give you a feeling of being there where all the action takes place. I can thoroughly recommend this book, as it left me with a happy contented feeling.  I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Charming, sexy and a whole lot of fun. Charming Hannah is the first book in an all new series, called Big Sky and was just the read I was looking for. Charming Hannah follows the story of Hannah and Brad. Hannah and Brad both take their jobs very seriously and never have time for dating. But, the moment Hannah and Brad meet, all bets are off. Neither one of them have ever experienced chemistry like this before and have no choice but to see where this amazing chemistry will go…. Charming Hannah is a fantastic start to this new series by author Kristen Proby. I fell in love with the characters and the story-line instantly. I loved all the little details about Montana and I for one really want to go and check out some of the places this author mentioned in her book. I loved how devoted both Brad and Hannah were to their jobs, but yet made time to explore what was happening between the two of them. Brad is a wonderful book boyfriend. He’s sweet. He’s sexy as ever. He is determined and not at all afraid to go after what he wants. And Hannah has an amazing job. She has a huge heart and if she allows you into her life, you must be a keeper! Together, these two shared an intense passion and connection. It was everything that I have come to know and love from this author, and boy did these two certainly steam up the pages together. Charming Hannah was a fantastic read from beginning to end. It certainly hit all the marks for me. From sexy characters to an amazing setting. To a fun story-line and some cameos from some old friends, this book had it all. I think the Big Sky series is off to a terrific start and I can’t wait to get my hands on more!!

Charming Hannah was a quick, easy, sweet read and I enjoyed it. This romance between Brad and Hannah steamy, realistic and lighthearted. I loved these two. Their chemistry was intense and it could be felt all through the pages on the novel. The secondary characters were all fun and greatly added to the story. The author did a great job of portraying the realities of someone living with anxiety. Although free from angst the story was charming and moved along nicely. I think the only thing I did not like was that the blurb hinted at some kind of danger and that was not the case in this story, so to me it was a bit misleading. However it was a good romance and I would recommend it to those looking for a sweet read. *I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this novel.*

The Big Sky series is what made me find Kristen Proby's books and all the books are a journey of romance, love and family. This one is about our favorite o/b gyn doctor, Hannah Malone, she has been living in Cunningham Falls for a while and a couple of years (I believe it was a scene in Falling for Jillian) she met Sheriff Brad Hull. They hit it off, but as both workaholics they needed a small car bump to bring them together. Hannah and Brad are a sexy couple and are as human as possible in their desires, drive and feelings. They both work a lot but find time to discover each other and maybe realize that they need time together to develop their romance. I think this book is a good re-start of the series that will feature the Hull family now and we will enjoy this ride a lot!

Extremely charming This was a absolutely charming book that I could not put down. Brad and Hannah are great together. Them trying to fit a relationship in with their crazy schedules. I loved the fact that Hannah had anxiety and dealt with it. The friendships that each of the characters had and relationship that brad had with his family was great. I cannot wait for the next book in this serious. Kristen Proby did not let me down with this book.

Love this author. This book was not like her other reads. Did not like the heroine of this book
