    "Loved it! Loved it! Loved it!"

    I've found another narrator I really like. Jack Garrett is great doing Linda Lael Miller's modern western. I have read Linda Lael Miller's books for years and they just keep getting better.

    "OK"

    It took me a long time to get through this book. The writing was predictable. The narrator was very professional. He was like being read to by your college professor or your Dad...which seemed icky to me when the sex finally happened.
    I think he did his best and probably does great with other stories but for me he was not a romance reader...although he did southern voices very well.
    Maybe this was just a bad fit for me. I have listened to other LLM books and liked them but it has been awhile. For me this book seemed tedious.

    "Cowboys & Montana.....(SIGH)"

    As always Linda Lael Miller brings together perfection, perfect setting, perfect story line, perfect romance. I loved the Creed and the McKettrick series from Miller and this one fits the bill as well. Jack Garrett does an excellent job at narration, he just has that great 'cowboy' voice. Wonderful book to just set back listen and cuddle in on a good, nice, dreamy, rainy day.

    To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.

    Story
    "A Great Pay Back!"

    Joslyn Kirk returns to Parable, Montana her previous hometown that she and her mother left under a cloud of suspicion. Joslyn's step father had hatched a scheme and embezzaled money from many of the citizens of town causing many to lose everything they had. She runs into Slade Barlow the illegitimate son of one of the wealthiest ranchers of the area. A major problem in Slade's life is Slade's father never acknowledged him while he was living, but upon his death he left Slade half of his assests, which sends his half brother into a tizzy. When Joslyn had lived in Parable before she and Hutch (Slade's half brother) were an item, however now it seems that Slade and Joslyn are feeling the sparks between them.
    Now the big question for everyone is "Why has Joslyn returned to town?"
    This is an easy read, very predictable romance, however the journey was good. I enjoyed it and Slade is such a jewel, what woman wouldn't want him?

    "SO - SO !!!"
    What did you like best about Big Sky Country? What did you like least?

    I thought the overall story was a bit weak.and I kept wanting things to hurry along.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    No


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I really don't think there is much insight in this story.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    When he did the voices he was pretty good, but the narrating was flat.

    "Another hit for LLM!"

    Big fan of Linda Lael Miller. No book will ever top 'High Country Bride' for me but I'm always hopefull. 'Big Sky Country' is a good read/listen.

    Could have had a deeper story with more drama. Good narration.but no one calls dog and cat food "kibble". Who says that! Kindle could have had more of a part with Hutch. characters just not very deep

    Story
    "Nice But A Bit Too Much Going On - CLIFFHANGER"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a 'Contemporary Western Romance' NOT Historical.

    Hutch and Slade are half-brothers, they share the same father. Hutch always worked on his father's ranch with his unappreciative father. However, Hutch knows that one day - when his father passes - he will inherit the whole thing and it will be worth it all.

    Meanwhile, Slade [and his single mother] scrape together a living for themselves. She a hairdresser and he, the Sheriff - both respectable members of the community.

    When the day finally comes that their father has passed away, his lawyer calls both men to her office for the reading of the will. Slade is not sure why he is here – as his father denied him his entire life, but out of respect for the well-known family attorney he attends. The will is a great surprise to everyone. It divides the property and assets between the two brothers, 50–50. While Slade has no interest in the farm he wants to try it out for a little while before giving up/selling his share.

    Joslyn is a hometown girl that left town when her father was arrested and jailed for something similar to a Ponzi scheme. He swindled many of the young and middle-aged people out of life savings. After spending years away, Joslyn decides that enough time has passed that no one will notice her moving back. She comes with her own set of problems, beyond the backlash from investors and the overwhelming guilt she feels.

    It is quite the adventure and kept me on my toes. There is a lot going on besides the on/off romance between Joslyn & Slade, an anonymous source reimbursing the victims of the financial scheme, a rodeo, etc.... I think the author included more characters and 'situations' than needed, but I have found this common in a lot of books that are the first in series

    The narration was great and believable.

    NOTE: A 'mature' scene or two.

    I enjoyed this book, though there is a bit of the cliffhanger. There are 5 books in the series available on Audible. It is a good book and I will probably look for the next in the series.

    Please select 'yes' below this text if my review was helpful to you. Thank you so much.

    "Really disappointing"

    This was really a disappointment. I have read other books by this author and expect more that this book offered.
