Abby Clark, a vegetarian, punk rock back-up singer and city-slicker gets kicked off the band tour bus in the middle of nowhere, also known as Sentinel, Wyoming.

Stuck with nothing but a talent for cooking and the singing voice of an angel, she manages to disturb a very cranky, cold-hearted bear, um, Baer.

Joe Baer, a sexy Wyoming beef rancher. He has a nasty ex-girlfriend, killer blue eyes, a ranch mortgage that’s due, and a past that even he never suspected. Just when it looks like beef might be what’s for dinner, the “Earl of Country Music” steps into the picture. He’s a sexy vegetarian with a killer smile and connections that could launch a stellar-career for Abby.

Snow, tractors, country superstars, an unforgettable rodeo, and a tornado named Abby, will bring these "baers" out of hibernation.

A great time was had by all!

Want to laugh, smile, cry a little and sigh happily a lot? Then you need to read the debut novel by Linda McMaken, The Baer Truth.

I love an "opposites attract" story and this one delivers. Abby and Joe are nothing alike, but when they get together, be it to love, fight, or just share the same page, the sparks fly! The writing flows well. Once I started this book, I couldn't put it down. I had to know what would happen and how much Abby would manage to get under his skin. I loved the sprinkle of mystery and the loads of laughter in these pages, too.

Abby is a back-up singer. She's used to being in the back, but dancing to her own tune. She's not going to fall for a...cowboy. I almost fell out of my seat. How could she not? I loved how Ms. McMaken worked out the details. Abby is strong and carefree. I thought about her long after I closed the book.

Then there's Joe. Tall, yummy and wearing faded jeans and cowboy boots. Who could ask for more? Not me. I loved his slow but sure attitude and his frustration with Abby. I could feel the attraction even when he wasn't sure he could love a woman like her. The combination of Abby and Joe is sparkling and I'm glad I got to read this first installment.

If you want a book with an accident prone ex-rocker, a sexy cowboy and a little intrigue, look no further. Baer Truth is the book for you!
