Review: Rancher Rescue – Barb Han
Katherine Harper’s life changes in the blink of an eye. Her nephew has been kidnapped, and she’s been left behind to deal with consequences. The child’s abductors are adamant that she knows about several secrets her deceased sister was keeping. Secrets they’ll gladly kill for. Granted, they won’t do anything to Noah. Not yet, anyway, but they’ve made it quite clear that they won’t take no for an answer.
When Caleb Snow comes to her rescue, Katherine isn’t sure as to what to think. Part of her wants to trust him, while another part of her wants to turn tail and run. The kidnappers made it clear that she wasn’t to involve anyone in what’s going on. Not even the police. Yet she can’t help but to feel that Caleb is just a little trustworthy.
Determined to get to the bottom of things, Katherine delves into the secrets behind her sister’s existence. Though she’s not exactly sure as to what she’s done, she knows she’ll need to fill in the missing pieces if she’s to make sense of the situation she now finds herself in. Her nephew’s captors refuse to believe that she knows nothing about her sister’s life. In their mind, her sister confided everything to her, and gave her the means to keep Noah safe. Sadly, that’s far from the truth.
Refusing to sit on the sidelines, Katherine throws herself into the case itself. If she’s to succeed in bringing Noah home, she’ll need to do some extensive digging. Though she’s not sure if she truly wants to know what her sister has done, she knows she has no recourse but to do as the kidnappers have asked of her. Noah’s life is on the line, and there’s no way she’s going to let him come to further harm. With Caleb by her side, she knows she’ll be able to weather the storm coming her way. Though there’s one thing neither counted upon, the attraction growing steadily between them.
This one is book you’re definitely going to want to read. It’s a story that will tug at your heartstrings, whose message will follow you wherever you go. Beautifully written, it immerses you in the chaos of Katherine Harper’s life as she does everything possible to bring her nephew home amidst recent tragedy.
Barb delivers a carefully constructed world that will leave you breathless as you turn every page, hoping to discover what happens next to her and those she loves. Will she bring the boy home in time? Who knows? The only way to find out is by reading the book yourself.

When a little boy goes missing, rancher Caleb Snow steps in to help…and winds up falling for the child’s beautiful—but mysterious—aunt in Barb Han’s Rancher Rescue.
Getting tangled up with another woman in crisis is the last thing rancher Caleb Snow needs. The handsome cowboy has been badly burned too many times. But this one feels different—Katherine Harper is injured and reeling after an ambush in which her nephew was kidnapped. Caleb wants nothing more than to protect the beautiful, headstrong woman and help her find the missing child. If only he could ignore the feelings she stirs in him.
But as they search together, it’s clear someone wants Katherine dead. Soon the two are running for their lives, dodging bullets, not knowing who to trust…or if they’ll survive long enough to bring a little boy home.
