I really like the premise of this series Return of the Blackwell Brothers: five different authors each weaving a story about one specific Blackwell brother while creating a bigger overarching theme on a ranch in Falcon Creek, Montana. I’ve never read any of these authors before so it’s an extra treat to discover new-to-me authors. This second book in the series can totally be read as a stand-alone. The oldest brother Jonathon, from the first book, has a prominent role in this book but you don’t need Jonathon’s backstory to fully get immersed in Ethan’s story. Ethan is a reliable, tender, and gentle vet who has been called home by his oldest brother to help out with their family’s ranch. Their grandfather who has been running the ranch has disappeared and they’re at a loss in trying to figure out how to save the ranch from financial ruin. Grace is a sweet, meek, reliable, efficient, and dependable accountant who is having Ethan’s baby. Throw into this precarious friendship/relationship Grace’s insecurity of her worth, Ethan’s emotional baggage from being orphaned at a young age and being raised by a grandfather who has had multiple failed marriages, and Ethan’s dismal financial status, and we have a well-written story full of surprises and memorable characters who tug at the heartstrings. There are definitely more poignant childhood memories embedded into Ethan’s story than Jonathon’s and it’s fun to have my reader’s view of the five Blackwell brothers expand little by little with each story I finish. I can’t wait to delve into Ben’s story next and see how similar or different he is compared to his twin Ethan. I was given a copy of this book from the author/publisher via Prism Book Tours and Eason under no obligation to write a positive review. All comments and opinions are solely my own.

This is the second book in the multi author series. If you haven't started it you are truly missing out. Ethan is back at the Blackwell Ranch the place he never wanted to come back to, but family has drawn him back. I loved watching Grace and Ethan together. They were delightfully adorable. Plus I liked the we got to revisit Jon and his family from the first book. I enjoyed the growth of the characters in this book. The fear of change and putting yourself out there. A lot of people can relate to. The family drama with the Blackwells because their grandfather is still MIA. The characters pulled me into the book and the story kept me there. I felt satisfied when I finished this book. It made my heart feel happy.

ETHAN BLACKWELL WAS surrounded by critically ill checking accounts. Ethan was born to be a veterinarian. From the time he was very little he loved to be around animals and had an inborn instinct for how to help them. He never thought of doing anything with his life other than caring for animals. I experienced a number of emotions as I read this book. At first, I liked Ethan and felt bad for him as he was having to deal with the mess his grandfather had left at the ranch. Then I was a bit appalled at Ethan as he discovered that he had gotten Grace pregnant. It almost seemed like he resented the fact she was still pregnant and hadn’t done anything about it. Nothing was specifically said about that – it was just the way he reacted. But he eventually won me over as I saw him interact with his nieces, saw his kindness towards the people of the town who came to him for help with their pets, and the way he ended up desiring to make things right and care for Grace and the baby. The story was both humorous and heartwarming. I enjoyed the writing style and the way the author made it known that Ethan was wanting to swear and yet didn’t even use fake swear words to convey that. (I hate swearing in books and I think I hate the fake swear words or the use of *** to mask the intention equally as much!) Grace was so lovely. She felt like the ugly duckling among her two swan sisters and also felt unappreciated and yet that the burden of keeping the family store running well was on her shoulders. I enjoyed watching her interactions with her family and the changes in Sarah Ashley. Near the beginning of the story, I felt the over-emphasis of Grace’s fears and Ethan’s resentment that he was stuck in town was frustrating. I got it and didn’t need to have them reiterated as much as they were. But this didn’t continue and I really began to enjoy the story and by the end was smiling and very glad I read it. Read with a Preview at AmongTheReads.net I was given a free copy of this item. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.

I’m so enjoying this multi-author Return of the Blackwell Brothers series from Harlequin Heartwarming! In this second installment we get to know Ethan, summoned by his desperate brother Jon to return home and help save their grandfather’s ranch. I have so many questions about Elias (grandfather) and why he’s taken off so irresponsibly, leaving the ranch with mounting bills to pay and no access to his bank accounts. In each book we get a little teaser of where he is and what he’s been up to, and each one makes me even more intrigued by this connecting story arc. As for Ethan, he’s determined to stay no longer than the one month he promised Jon, a vow that is tested when he learns the surprising news that he’s about to be a father. Both Ethan and Grace (the mother-to-be) are very likable & authentically flawed characters who need to learn to allow other people to share their burdens. I loved them as individuals and I loved them especially together because they brought out the best in each other. Ethan is, at heart, a protector and a care-r and both of those instincts come out full force when Grace is around – especially once he knows she’s carrying his baby. Grace, for her part, isn’t used to any one taking care of her and there is a bit of a learning curve as they both try to navigate each other’s independent personalities and stubborn ideas. Bottom Line: This is a very sweet and romantic story of two longtime friends who each have separate obstacles – and one tiny shared life – to settle before happily-ever-after can be theirs for the taking. There are lots of cute moments, some swoony ones, and even some times when I giggled out loud. The cast of supporting characters is just as delightful as Ethan and Grace are, and the intriguing developments in Big E’s disappearance continue to keep me eagerly waiting for the next installment. A truly enjoyable story from start to finish! (I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book)

Oh, this was such a good story and a great addition to the Return of the Blackwell Brothers series! The Rancher’s Rescue is book two of the series, yet reads beautifully as a standalone, as well. I really enjoyed reading about these two characters, Ethan and Grace, who find themselves expecting a child as a result of one night together three months earlier. It was interesting to see how each of them handled the impending arrival, both emotionally and intellectually. Ethan, especially, had a lot of baggage to overcome from his past. These things made committing to love anyone a challenge and almost cost him his chance at true love and a family of his own. I am really enjoying this series and look forward to the next book. I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

This was a fun story to read! I love it when a woman is suddenly pregnant and she thinks that by waiting to tell the father it is going to "magically" make things better or easier on the situation. It never happens that way. I liked these characters. They were real, flawed but oh so enjoyable! Gracie was a little to headstrong for me....she could have leaned on Ethan a little bit! I know there was a lot of history between her, Ethan and their families but still, she didn't need to be so "standoffish" at times! I liked her better as the book progressed! I liked Ethan but he too, was way too focused on leaving town and I felt he didn't even once consider being a father to his child! It was a very good story though. I loved seeing the character development though because Gracie and Ethan weren't really in love at first but I enjoyed watching their feelings change and grow! I would recommend this book - you'll enjoy it!!! I was delighted to receive this book complimentary from the author but was not required to review it. My opinions are my own.

4 1/2 STARS! One night leads to forever! With the next book in the Return of the Blackwell Brothers series, Cari Lynn Webb brings us Ethan's story. He's been away getting his eduction, and agrees to come home to help while they search for Big E, but he has his own problems simmering on the back burner and drama yet to unfold to look forward to! He and Grace make a really sweet couple, so watching their relationship develop is really enjoyable. Looking forward to the next book soon! Newly minted equestrian veterinarian Ethan Blackwell doesn't really have time to be wasting visiting his old stomping ground, but when his brother Jon puts out a call for help figuring out the finances and running their grandfather's ranch until they can figure out where the old coot has disappeared to, he figures he can't put off the trip. He needs to be back on the road and hunting for that perfect job soon though! Grace Gardner is always the one her family and the town turn to when they need something from their family ranch supply store. She has dreams of starting her own business, but they keep getting pushed to the way side. Now she's just discovered she's pregnant and really needs to accomplish her dreams so she can give her child a good life ... but first she has to tell Ethan he's going to be a daddy!

First, let me say that yes, this book can be read as a standalone however it IS a part of a series about the Blackwell Brothers and this story is about brother #2, Ethan Blackwell. The best part, for me, were the little (what will become clues and inside stories between the brothers and others) Easter egg gems that I started to notice now that I’ve read book two. It’s not necessary to know what they are; it’s just very enjoyable to be able to groan and know that it means there’s trouble ahead, and much teasing, for this particular brother, as it was for the one before him. Ethan Blackwell comes back to Falcon Creek, a place he swore to never see again, to help his brother Jon – and his family – straighten out a huge mess created by his grandfather up and leaving the “family” farm without direction or resources. He plans to get in and get right back out again; I won’t retell the story but let’s say that Ethan is NOT happy to be back. He runs into Grace Gardner, sister to an old flame of his, and Grace is definitely a hometown girl. Both Grace and Ethan have such deep hurts and events in their backgrounds they need to overcome before they can trust and love one another. Their story is fully of ups and downs, and craziness, and sometimes just plain fun. I loved Pops, Grace’s grandfather. He was just the right blend of I-can-get-away-with-anything-cuz-I’m-old and snarky ‘n’ sneaky. He is just a hoot. And insightful. He will make you smile. And then laugh because he comes up with the best remarks that speak of much love and wisdom. Grace’s parents are pretty terrific, too, and (most of the time!) I’d love to be related to them as well. Grace is a lucky woman. The story is all about Ethan working out being back in Falcon Creek, getting reacquainted with his family and Grace learning that she is strong enough to sometimes rely on others. Really loved their story! I don’t consider this a spoiler as it doesn’t tell you much but my favorite lines were: “Can I borrow $25?” “Can I borrow ANOTHER $25??” Loved this book, really loving the series, and can’t wait for the next one!

Who doesn't love a good cowboy love story. While at first the story starts off strong and sucks you in, I wish that they would not have tip toed around the same issues for almost the whole book, it seemed that they each had there own goals but wouldn't discuss with each other what they really wanted. I did really love how Grace was looking to find her self and how her sister was also on the same journey. I really enjoyed how Ethan loved his family and no matter what happened with his grandfather did he was willing to be there for his brothers and his nieces. I loved Pops and the small town of Falcon Creek and the fun characters in the book. This book is a good clean read and overall I really have enjoyed this series so far and really can't wait too see where the brothers and what there futures hold.
