Best-selling author Linda Lael Miller sets hearts racing with her pulse-pounding tales of the Montana Creeds. Listeners have thrilled to the stories of the Creed brothers, as rugged and complex as the Montana landscape. And for A Creed in Stone Creek, Miller outdoes herself with a work as wholly winning and addictive as the Creeds themselves.

I usually LOVE stories by LLM and can't wait to read the next installment in a series. This book had all the elements of her usually wonderful stoires, but it just kind of fell flat. I couldn't really connect with any of the characters, which is rare for me. Part of the allure of a series is that you stay engaged with the characters, but this book just felt disconnected. If you are not a fan of the series, you'll probably enjoy this story. However, as a long-time fan of the McKettrick/Creed clans, I was a bit disappointed.
It wasn't the best of the Stone Creek stories, but it tied up loose ends very nicely and Jack Garrett did a fine job with the narration.
I was a bit disappointed not to have a more in depth (and longer) lead up to the end, but all in all, this is a book I've listened to twice, and will again.
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
If I see a book from Linda Lael Miller with narration by Jack Garrett, there is never a question that I will snap it up as soon as possible. I have now listened to "A Creed in Stone Creek" and I have read it. Both were fantastic, but narration by Jack Garrett, lets you feel like you almost know them.
This is in the top 10 of my Linda Lael Miller books.
Jack Garrett gives the characters life.
I think it would make an excellant TV movie with Justin Timberlake playing the lead.
Yes I would change the voice. There is nothing wrong with the reader's style but he sounds much older than the Creed men. He would be great performing a David Baldacci book like Stone Cold because the character is older. There was just too much of an age difference in him so it took a lot away from another of Linda Lael Miller's great story lines. I'm sorry but it kept making me mad because I had a hard time visualizing the handsome young cowboy. I'll buy the other Creed books from book story and read it the traditional way.
