Publisher's Summary

Learning that his former Ranger partner Gabe Navarro is on the way to the gallows on trumped-up charges and that his foster father, buffalo soldier John Cavanagh, is about to lose his land, Holt McKettrick ditches his mail-order bride at their Arizona Territories altar and rides off to Texas. In San Antonio, he meets a lively lady named Lorelei Fellows, who has just called off her own wedding and burned her bridal gown in the center of town. Thrown out of her father's house, she's hoping to pick up some cattle and start a small ranch of her own. Holt thinks she's out of her mind, but he revises his opinion after watching Lorelei learn to ride a mule named Seesaw, play a cutthroat game of poker, and all in all start to look mighty delectable. Cavanagh's land will be fine and Navarro won't hang - but is Lorelei out of the frying pan into the fire? Her father dies vastly indebted to the landowner who had framed Navarro.

    "No bad at all"

    An enjoyable story which gives us an introduction to the McKettrick family of Indian Rock which Miller does a great job with in McKettrick’s Luck, Pride and Heart. Christina Moore, the true name of the narrator, does an excellent job bringing the characters to life. One might find Lorelei Fellows, Holt’s love interest, an exasperating character but then there is no explaining what makes some women think and act the way they do. I also found Holt’s reaction to her antics a little over the top but then there are those A types who do tend to over react. It just seems out of character for the strong cowboy persona generally presented in western genre. If you must have steamy sex, best move on to the other books about this family. If you don’t need that and just like to relax with a good story then you should enjoy this edition of the McKettrick clan.

    "Not quite a romance"

    Good book, but falls short in the romance department. It seemed the story was rushed and could have been stretched out a bit, or needed more detail, to make a better quality of story. Narrorator was fine, but the lead female character was irritating. Found myself rolling my eyes almost everytime she spoke.

    "Good book"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I liked the book the way it is and would not change anything about this book.


    If you’ve listened to books by Linda Lael Miller before, how does this one compare?

    I have listened to quite a few Linda Lael Miller books. They have all been quite enjoyable and this one was ok but I have enjoyed some of the other books a bit more.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene actually was when Lorelei sets fiire to her wedding dress in the town square and Holt intervenes and basically thinks she's nutso.


    Could you see McKettrick's Choice being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I guess McKettrick's Choice could be made into a movie. Holt McKettrick played by Tatum Channing Tatum and Lorelei played by Gweneth Paltrow.

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

    Story
    "Really Enjoyed this One!"

    I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed listening to this story. It revolves around a corrupt judges daughter, who leaves homes because of her fathers attitude towards her and how he attempts to manipulate her life. Her male counterpart, abandons his wife to be on the day of his wedding, to go rescue his friend, who has been tried and found guilty of a crime he did not commit, and his foster fathers ranch is in trouble from an unscrupulous neighbor, who is doing everything to drive him out. When Holt and Lorelei meet up fireworks begin. This tightly woven story is atypical, and the ending is predictable, but the journey was very, very interesting. I will be reading more stories about the McKettricks, they seem to be a very interesting family, its just too bad audible doesn't have the first 3 books in their library, so you have to start with this one.
    The narrator did an excellent job considering the number of voices and the varied ethnics groups she has to do.

    Story
    "Love all Linda Lael Miller's tales of the west."
    If you could sum up McKettrick's Choice in three words, what would they be?

    Hard taput down!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of McKettrick's Choice?

    There were too many hilarious moments to list, but I think trying to ride the donkey is the best.


    Have you listened to any of Patricia Floyd’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not impressed too much.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book held all emotions in different chapters. Always waiting to find out what is going to happen.


    Any additional comments?

    I am sorry the first books of the McKettrick series are not on audio. I would buy them all as I have read most of them twice and will probably read them again, but it is like a different book when someone else is actually performing the story.

    "It hooked me"

    This was the first book that I purchased by Ms. Miller. I have just finished listening to it for the second time, and I have purchased 9 other books by the same author. That should say enough about it. I have enjoyed the book both times I've listened. Ms Miller develops strong characters in a good story.
