Book Description

January 1, 2014
The "First Lady of the West," #1 New York Times bestselling author Linda Lael Miller delivers the stunning finale of her acclaimed series set in Parable, Montana—where love awaits
Self-made tycoon Landry Sutton heads to Hangman Bend's Ranch to sell his land to his brother Zane. Though he's got cowboy in his blood, Landry plans to return to city life before the dust even settles on his boots. Of course, he didn't count on falling for Big Sky Country…or Ria Manning.
Ria's starting to settle into country life herself…until she has a close encounter of the terrifying kind with a buffalo. Turns out the peeping monster belongs to the cowboy next door—and he has her running even more scared than his bison. She wants a home where the buffalo don't roam, and the men don't either. Could Landry's homecoming be her heart's undoing?

Linda Lael Miller seems to have become a hit-or-miss author for me. “Big Sky Secrets” is a miss for me.

I found no strong plot or story to keep me engaged. There is no action to move the story along. I was able to put the book down as I was reading and feel no qualms about doing so. For me, if a book is good I will tote it with me everywhere so I can keep reading.

The ‘romance’ was tepid at best and comes in very late in the book.

As usual Ms Millers descriptions of the country and cowboy life are engaging, but it just wasn’t enough for me this time.*ARC Supplied by Publisher*
