5.0 out of 5 starsVERY GOOD BOOK!
Reviewed in the United States on June 6, 2019
I enjoyed Nathan and Julie's story immensely. They were a great couple... They were both so different and dealing with inner challenges that they both could relate too and help each other overcome. It was a really beautiful love story. Swoony, sweet, and laugh out loud funny in some places due to their witty banter!! 😁 As usual the descriptive passages in this book made you feel like you were present and seeing everything in real time yourself.. That is one of the things I admire the most about Mr. Buchman's writing ... How vivid and detailed he is when he describes any scene, character interaction, or object! For an interesting and enjoyable read I highly recommend this book!
5.0 out of 5 starsTerrific start to a new series with continuing characters

Yes, this is the third in this series, but the other two were short stories. I want more pages!)
We meet Julie, a tough, no-nonsense builder and rider and Nathan, a chef from New York. They seduce each other (in the best sense of that word) and then can't find a way to be together. Luckily, Emily and Mark nudge them together. Some very funny scenes (fishing and the melk) and some funny vignettes add to the depth of the story. Loved it, as I love all the Buchman books. Great read.
5.0 out of 5 starsAn authentic and genuine contemporary romance

Nathan's Big Sky
I received a free copy of this title and asked by the publisher for an honest review.
Nathan Gallagher is out of his depth in rural Montana. A top New York chef, he finished dinner service one night and then walked out, packed up and headed west to the Henderson Ranch his brother had been working in search of "different". Well, different is exactly what he found in one Julie Larson, cowgirl, ranch hand, horse whisperer, business owner and contractor. Julie has been the focus of many a cowboy, but she too is looking for something different. It a late night phone call may put the brakes on what could be.
I really enjoyed this book! Buchman's characters are always top-notch and I love how they grow and discover new things about themselves along the way. There's an authenticity to his books that is sometimes lacking in others, and a richness in the descriptions and emotions portrayed. And, we get to see some of our favorite characters from previous books. Mark and Emily join the story as secondary characters this time around. Another hit!
5.0 out of 5 starsFacing your fears...M.L. Buchman style
Reviewed in the United States on June 17, 2017
“Nathan’s Big Sky” by M.L. Buchman is part of the “Henderson’s Ranch” series and details the challenges of Cordon Bleu chef Nathan Gallagher, who has made a radical change in his life and fled from his prestigious job in New York and retreated to rural Montana, ostensibly to visit his brother. His determination to find a niche for himself is complicated by his attraction to the heroine who ‘saves’ him from a longhorn cow named Lucy. Can this city boy make a home for himself in the wilds of Montana?
I loved the contrasts in this story, and the way perception is so deftly portrayed by the author. The opening scene is priceless, with the juxtaposition of Nathan’s desperate attempt to defend himself with a tire jack against the ‘vicious’ animal, let alone deal with the unfamiliar weather and confusing geography, and the ‘heroic’ rescue by a beautiful and capable but disdainful cowgirl. As with most of M.L.’s stories, the action starts immediately with characters who catch one’s attention and the more the tale unfolds, the more fascinating it becomes.
Nathan’s first encounter with Ama, whose striking appearance is…enhanced…by her bunny slippers, Lucy’s sometimes dangerous propensity to be somewhere she doesn’t belong (causing Mark’s showoff piloting to be extra exciting), and, best of all, Mark’s version of fly fishing as complicated by the eoose/melk/mook family unit kept me enthralled (and laughing maniacally) throughout the story. The beautiful romance that slowly flourishes is icing on the cake and of course, it was delightful as always to get glimpses of Mark and Emily and their remarkable capacity to excel and enjoy life. This was another excellent story from an impressively prolific author who never fails to entertain, and I look forward to reading other stories in this series!
I received a free copy of this title from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I'm a huge ML fan. I typically find his books entertaining with believable characters and fun and fast paced plots. Happily, this book is no exception. It's well written, completely believable and has the bonus feature of including Mark and Emily as they "retire" to his family's ranch. I like how the author has moved them and the action out of active duty to their 2nd career in firefighting and now on to other adventures and yet somehow manages to keep my interest. Keep them coming, ML, and I'll keep reading. An added note: if you are new to this author's books, don't feel as though you have to read them in order. This book would be enjoyable even if you know nothing about the military/firefighting world he has written so compellingly about. BUT...do go back and read the others. You won't be sorry!
