To their astonishmen What’s a sexy rancher to do when an uptight accountant falls into his lap? Already reeling at having inherited the family farm on his father’s death, photojournalist Cruz Brockman returns home to the Oregon town of Graciella to receive another blow—accountant Miranda Jenks is there to audit the books because the IRS suspect his late father of tax fraud. To their astonishment, sparks fly between the passionate Cruz and the career-focused Miranda upon first meeting and the heat rises with every encounter. Threatened with losing everything his family has worked for, Cruz has no choice but to be completely open with Miranda, something that doesn’t come easily to him, just as focusing on her own needs is foreign to her.

An intense, toe-curling physical connection is one thing, but exposing their hearts is another.

    I’ve been reading Sara Ohlin’s writing for over 10 years and knew she was a master in wordcraft. However, most of what I have read in the past is non-fiction/memoir. This was my first time reading any of her fiction work and while contemporary romance isn’t my first love - I’m more of a fantasy/sci-fi girl WITH romance sprinkled in - I was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved this book!

It was a fast read, yet the characters and scenery are so well developed it left me longing to live on the farm in Graciella...like please is this a real place because I need to visit NOW. I could totally see this book being turned into a movie - especially with that setting. I heard this will be a trilogy so I’m ready for books 2 & 3 Ms. Ohlin! Get to writing! ;)

    Sara Ohlin's writing is absolutely stellar. Handling the Rancher is full of exquisite literary details, especially when it comes to descriptive imagery of setting, food, and characters. Speaking of the book's characters, each one, including secondary characters, is full of depth, lovable quirks, and relatable defenses. For this reason the chemistry and love story between Miranda and Cruz is compelling and satisfying.

    Emotional and fascinating! I felt that the author had a special ability of conveying depth in the personalities, bringing life and likability to each character. The writing draws you in and keeps you interested until the end. The chemistry between the H and h is great plus their attitudes and events going on make the story even richer.

    This was such an awesome book that I loved. The story line, plot and characters were awesome and pulled me in for the beginning and I couldn't stop reading. Miranda works for the IRS and after his fathers death Cruz returns home to find her auditing the family ranch. They have an instant attraction and chemistry with a hot and steamy romance. I enjoyed this book thoroughly and highly recommend it. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. This was such an awesome book that I loved.

    Handling the Rancher is the first book in the Graciella series and the first book I have read by this author. I really enjoyed this romance and found that the characters were likable and relatable. The storyline was well written and engaging. Cruz and Miranda have great chemistry but is that enough to form a long-lasting love? I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    I enjoyed the set up for this book. I haven’t read one dealing with accounting and the IRS before. I love the details of the ranch and the land and the animals. The word pictures used really got the point across and I felt like I could picture it. The romance, while not clean, was good otherwise. I liked the focus on facing your past demons and the choice that faces us all and the emphasis on self-worth. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    When you look at the cover of this book, you get so many different emotions and honestly it just makes you wish you could stand either on a peaceful beach or at the top of a cliff overlooking the ocean and forget all about everything that’s happening.

I love that just from the one look at the cover it does so much to you but it does draw you in too and you can’t help but be curious as to what the tale is that lies beyond the pages. When I was reading through this, I couldn’t help but get the beach feel or the fact that I just wanted to be part of the small community that lived within the village. Sara Ohlin has done a great job at making you feel as if you’re part of the story as you read through and I loved how it was well thought out and planned carefully. To me, Sara is a new author and I’m honestly glad that I was able to discover her writing, it’s clear that she has a passion for writing and that there’s a little of her in the book. She’s made it just that little bit more personal and it’s got such a different feel or vibe to other books that are in the same genre or based around small communities alongside the beach. It’s clear that this series is very close to her heart and I’m beyond thrilled that I’m able to discover what happens and just fall in love with the tale that’s told. I loved everything in this book, it was easy to follow, the characters were so intriguing that you can’t help but love them. In a way, the book made me feel at home and it’s been a while since I’ve discovered a book that made me feel like that. I’m so excited to see what else happens in this series, as it’s clear there’s so much more to tell and it’s only just really began. I don’t know what Sara plans on doing, but I know for a fact that I’ll enjoy every minute of it. I’d recommend giving this book a try as it honestly does put you at ease and allows you to forget what’s happening in life and you’re able to relax for a few hours. Cruz never expected to come back home to his family farm for a good while, and the only way he knew for sure that he would come back would be when his father passed… Due to years of neglect and abuse from him, he thought he was finally free once he was no longer around to hurt him or anyone else. However… when Miranda turns up out of the blue (in his eyes), he has no idea how much damage his father has done. It’s not only until Miranda mentions that he could be set to lose the entire farm and business unless he helps her in achieving to audit the entire business. They both know that no matter what nothing is going to be easy and it’s clear that Cruz’s father is still trying to send messages beyond the grave and to also get the last one in, but will Miranda be able to help save Cruz’s family business and farm or did his father make sure that he was set to lose everything? What happens when it’s clear there’s a spark between both Miranda and Cruz??? Will they both be open to exploring something or are they both too scared of their pasts to even attempt anything???

    The first in a series, Handling the Rancher begins with Cruz Brockman coming home to Graciella for the first time in years after the death of his father. Named executor of the estate, it's up to him to figure out the mess his father has deliberately left for him and his brothers.

Named executor of the estate, it's up to him to figure out the mess his father has deliberately left for him and his brothers. There's properties to manage, paper trails to get to the bottom of, farm equipment to update and animals to care for—and the first step is a full audit of the accounts. Enter Miranda Jenks, the accountant hired to get to the bottom of this mess and figure out how much is owed the IRS in back taxes. I really do feel for Cruz; he's had no relationship with his father since he left home at eighteen because the man was a frankly awful human being, and now he finds out the man was probably committing tax fraud for years that could cause the farm to go under. It's no wonder that he's not exactly happy to see Miranda. But there's no denying the sparks that fly between them, try as they both might. It's not the physical aspect that scares them, but the idea of being open and vulnerable with another person isn't something that comes naturally to either of them. I absolutely loved watching them both slowly opening up to one another; admitting to their fears and insecurities and learning to trust one another. Not only is their romance beautiful and totally swoon-worthy, but Sara does a fantastic job of really grounding the story. There's an incredibly strong emotional connection to Brockman Farms and the town of Graciella from both Cruz and Miranda, despite her outsider status. And honestly, I cannot blame her; the landscape is described so wonderfully that I almost thought. I could almost smell the sea breeze, hear the horses whickering in the fields, or feel the grass between my toes. I've never wished a fictional small town was as real as I have this one; not only is it incredibly picturesque but also filled with a cast of delightful, entertaining residents. Every single one of them is a delight, and the web of relationships between them and the Brockman family adds so much life to the story.

    This is an absolutely gorgeous read with a beautiful setting and characters you’ll fall in love with. It has the perfect balance of chemistry, vulnerability, and character-building that I love in a romance novel. This is my first book by the author, and I can’t wait to read more!
