Wedding bells are ringing in Parable, Montana, but Brylee Parrish hasn’t enjoyed the sound since being jilted at the altar by Hutch Carmody. She’s over Hutch now, and running a multimillion-dollar business is challenging enough for this country gal. So she should avoid falling head over boot heels for A-list actor Zane Sutton. He’s come home to his rodeo roots, but Hollywood lured him away once and just might again. Yet everything about him, from his easy charm to his concern for his young half-brother, seems too genuine to resist…. Zane didn’t come to Parable for love - but count on a spirited woman to change a jaded cowboy’s mind. Problem is, Brylee’s not convinced he’s here to stay. Good thing he’s determined to prove to her, kiss by kiss, that she’s meant to be his bride.

True to Linda Lael Miller's style this audio book is full of down home country warmth, real folks, and a few of those castoff critters who need a loving home, both the four-footed and two-footed variety. Along with that, it's chock full of enough cowboy country colloquialisms to choke a horse, but those of us who enjoy these Big Sky stories don't mind. In fact, that is what adds to the charm. Speaking of adding to the charm, the gravely, baritone of Jack Garrett just about melts me into a puddle every time I hear his voice. I think he has the voice of the quintessential cowboy. So that makes this listen just about perfect for me.
A welcome addition to the Parable series, this listen definitely holds its own. Well worth the credit, especially if you are a Linda Lael Miller fan. Jack Garrett does a great job with the narration which adds considerably to the listening experience.
favorite thing is to walk dogs and listen to books!
Up untill now I had listened to every Linda Lael Miller book available but this series has me putting on the audio brakes. The previous book was too silly to live and this book follows suit. I finally figured out what drove my crazy! There is barely any verbal communication between characters. It's a compilation of inner musings, rambling thoughts and contemplations. Yeah we know the h was hurt big time but come on! She was a weird timid little rabbit who's mouth, throat, mind etc was to dry so she was unable to speak. Hey maybe that's why her thoughts were always in her head! And the H wasn't any better. He never voiced his thoughts either unless he was forced to speak on the phone. The romance department was also totally weak. Barely a spark and mostly fizzle.
maybe but I will most likely read and not listen
Jack is great but he had slim pickins with this book
no no no!
I like this book, and like the voice of the narrator but his pace is too slow for me. I wish he'd read a bit faster. I'm now listening at 2X and that is a little too fast, but it is preferable to 1X.
