New York Times best-selling author Linda Lael Miller has earned a large and growing following for her wildly popular novels starring the Creeds and the McKettricks. As her many fans will attest, no one brings cowboys - and their affairs of the heart - to life in quite the way she does. With the author’s signature style, Big Sky Country delivers a scintillating tale that you will not want to miss.

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?
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.
Say something about yourself!
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.
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.
I thought the overall story was a bit weak.and I kept wanting things to hurry along.
I really don't think there is much insight in this story.
When he did the voices he was pretty good, but the narrating was flat.
Say something about yourself!
Good story, good narrator.
Slade Barlow, Jack Garrett made his very easy to picture and relate to.
No problem with the name
will have to continue the series, there's nothing like a good cowboy/love story. :-)
The first kiss
The older black lady because of the way she cared about everyone
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.
It is a believable escape with the right amount of detail.
By the end of the story I felt like I had been to this town and knew the people.
He never distracted from the story.
This book did a good job of introducing me to a new setting and new characters without getting bogged down in description. Once I got to the end I bought the rest of the available books in the series.
Narration by Jack Garrett was one of the best I have heard and the story line by Linda Lael Miller was excellent. I did not want to turn it off. I will look for more books by her and for books jack garrett has narrated.
He did not sound as if he was reading the book his voice kept you into the story line. You felt like the old days of radio shows where you thought you were at the movies.
This was really a disappointment. I have read other books by this author and expect more that this book offered.
