MICAH'S JEWEL by Anna Dynowski

When Santino Moretti died he left the Triple-M Ranch to his three sons, Micah, Matteo and Marek.  They all had different mothers and didn’t know that each other existed until the reading of the will.  The condition of the will states that each son must take a turn living on the farm and learning how to run it for three months.  Then they must all live together on the farm for the final three months.  Micah Moretti is the oldest and the first to take his three month turn.  His desire is certainly not to live on a ranch and be a cowboy, his aspiration is to win the Prime Minister’s seat.  When a situation arises that causes his political career to hit a snag, he’s glad for the time on the farm to allow the talk to die-down and give him a chance to regroup.  That is until he finds out Sierra Rilstone is the Triple M Hotel Manager.  She is supposed to teach all the brothers what they need to know to run the place.  Sierra Rilstone has loved Micah for a long time.  Micah doesn’t know that he’s the father of Sierra daughter, Savannah.  Micah made it clear that he was not a family man but wanted, instead, to pursue a political career so Sierra never told him.  The attraction between Micah and Sierra is as strong as ever but Sierra knows that as soon as he’s fulfilled his required time he’ll be leaving and she doesn’t want her daughter hurt.  But what will happen when he finds out the truth?  Why does Micah find the idea of staying on the farm with Sierra and Savanna so appealing?

A great start to a great new series by Anna Dynowski!  I loved my visit to the Triple M.  Meeting all the folks there as well as the horses.  One particular horse has a lively personality and takes Micah on an unforgettable, life-changing trip.  Sierra is a sweet gal (with spunk) who loves her daughter and only wants the best for her.  Micah is a man who looks like he has everything a man could ever want but he doesn’t have the one thing he craves.  Money and power don’t make you happy and can be dangerous if not handled in the right way.  I loved watching Sierra and Micah together through the struggles and the triumphs.  Their relationship was shown in a realistic way and very easy to relate to.  We may not have the same issues as Sierra and Micah but we all have struggles and things we wish we could change or do different!  I always appreciate the spiritual truths this author tucks inside her stories.  Here we see that God’s best may not be what we think is best but it will always be best if we’re willing to yield to His plan.  It’s a choice we make!  Now I’m looking forward to Marek and Matteo’s stories.  So, strap on your spurs and swagger on down to the Triple M.  You’ll find friendly folks and good hearty meals.  Watch out for the horses though, some of them are very spirited!
