Big Sky MountainBig Sky Mountain by Linda Lael Miller
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

2.5 Stars  Big Sky Mountain – Linda Lael Miller


This was an extremely slow moving book, one with many questions left unanswered and situations left unfinished.   This wasn’t even a very romantic book.   It seems that the romance (what there was of it) was solely in the minds of Kendra and Hutch the main characters.

As the book opens, we find Hutch leaving his fiancé at the altar as she is walking down the aisle. We find Kendra coming home with her new daughter who is actually the daughter of her late husband and another woman.  Kendra and Hutch had been an item long ago and Kendra had left Hutch for Jeffrey, a rich, titled Englishman.

This book centers on the day-to-day lives of Hutch and Kendra and never really gets more exciting than that.  We sometimes become quite caught up in some side stories, which at times seem more interesting than what is happening with the protagonists.

The characters are well written and the dialogue (what little there really is) is interesting.  All in this entire book lacks something.  There is nothing there to drive the story, and at times the inner-dialoguing, especially Kendra’s, can get to be too much.
So many questions had been raised that were never answered. Then the novel concludes hastily, almost as if it was an after-thought.

While this was not a horrible novel, I just don’t feel that this was the best book by Ms Miller.
