Willa, the only one who knew her father, boldly expects that everything will be hers. Tess, who has reluctantly flown in from Hollywood, just hopes to fly back with as much cash as possible - and as soon as possible. And Lily Mercy would be grateful for anything; she has learned to expect disappointment, even cruelty, from men.
But the women are shocked to learn that before any of them can inherit, they must live together on the ranch for one year. They are sisters...and strangers. Now they face challenges: to put their bitterness aside and live like family, to protect each other from danger - and to unite against an enemy who threatens to destroy all. And finally, to weave together three very different worlds in this beautiful and isolated place called Montana.

"Roberts balances the tension and sometimes gruesome action with three romances, crackling dialogue and a snappy infusion of humor." (Publishers Weekly)
"All six of the major characters are wonderfully written, with just the right touch of genuineness, warmth, and distinctiveness to make readers emotionally invest in their stories." (Library Journal)
Excellent Story Looses 1 Star For Too Much Gore & Animal Violence
I think this is one of Nora Roberts best suspense novels. It is a relatively modern day western, it was first published in 1996 so it not totally current in modern technology etc. Montana Sky is beautifully narrated by Erika Leigh; I think she is a relatively new narrator to Audible, and a welcome new narrator. She has excellent story telling skills and makes each character sound different and credible. My only issue with this book is the amount of gore and violence, if there had been less violence and blood plus some violence toward animals, this book would have gotten 5 stars from me.
One of the best I've read
The story was great.
I hadn't heard this narrator before. She did a good job.
I had seen the TV movie of this book and had decided not to buy the audio book. I finally changed my mind and am really glad I did. It was well worth the price.
Offensive that authors show rape as being something women enjoy or something that a man who supposedly loves a woman likes to do and she likes it. I'm sorry, sex in bondage with the woman saying no is rape and not lovemaking and I am totally appalled this is churned out to women as romance.
Turned me off this author.
I cannot get my head out of my fury that she wrote a rape scene as romantic to think of anything good to say about this author.
Any suggestion that forced sex with a woman's hands cuffed against her will and saying NO is something she is going to enjoy. That is totally offensive. Not only that it is dangerous as it suggests a woman should be degraded as being good. I cannot express how appalled I was by that scene strongly enough.
If it were a physical book it would have been thrown at the wall. I will be advising people NOT to buy a Nora Roberts book.
I get Nora Roberts for pleasant enjoyable listening on long road trips in the car. This book has a murderer in it that takes a knife and tortures animals and people. The book goes into horrific detail about the blood and the pain of the creature and how the murderer is feeding upon this horror. I did not finish this book. After one of the characters was mutilated and killed I had had enough. I am shocked and extremely disappointed with this book.
Maybe readers who are looking for a series of sexy romances rather than a solid plot
Leigh is good with voices and pacing.
I thought the plot sounded interesting--three sisters who don't know each other thrown together into an interesting premise. But it simply did not live up to ANY expectations.
If you're going to write a murder mystery, then you have to stick to the RULES. There are RULES for murder mysteries. And one of them is (possible spoiler alert) that the murderer can't be someone invisible, off on the sidelines, late walk-in, unconnected with the story. Many, many critiques on Amazon of this book bemoaned the gory animal slayings; but that wasn't what was really wrong with this book. What was inexcusable from a mystery reader's point of view is the whole pulling-the-murderer-out-of-the-woods plot.
I listen to a lot of audiobooks and have read Montana Sky before, but the recording is starting to show its age. The performance is worthy of Nora Roberts and the story is a classic. My only complaint is the static that is present through most of the recording.
I have a real crazy in love relationship with books!!!
I really enjoyed listening to this book. I laughed, cried, then shuddered. It had a bit of romance, humor, and mystery. The sisterhood that developed throughout the course of the book was also a real plus, which gave me that feel good factor. Don't let the cheesy cover throw you off- I would definitely recommend this one.
This story was a bit of a change for me I don't usually read cowboy stories. This was an excellent story well read and performed. I never guessed who the bad guy was and that makes a good book, there's nothing worse then getting half a dozen chapters in and knowing who the bad guy is. Great story I would highly recommend it.
The best sexy suspense thriller I have every read ! It has everything you could want, murder, steaming sex, a good laugh now and then and you constantly wonder throughout the book who did it, you are so excited to know how it ends and when you get to it you don't want it to stop, the Characters are so detailed and the narrator is one of the best I have listened too which makes the entire experience fantastic ! I have listened too it several times and I am just as in love with it after reading it the 10th time as I was the 1st, I'm not into sappy love stories and I only read it because it was recommended by a friend but I was mistaken this is definitely NOT sappy !
It should have 10 stars not just 5 and she should make a sequel
ENJOY YOURSELF, BUT MAKE TIME IN YOUR SCHEDULE CAUSE YOU WON'T WANT TO PUT IT DOWN !!!
It was narrated very well. Sometimes you wondered if their wasn't more than one person speaking.
Thinking you knew who did it, then realising you didn't.
Loved it, that was most enjoyable. The different voices was amazing
When Willa thought her brother was going to die, and also when he thought he might loose Lilly.
Nora Roberts is amazing. The stories are very involved and I can say I have loved everyone of hers I have read. This one you feel for all three sisters and the men who fall for them. You knew one of them wouldn't go back, but you are still on the edge of your sit wondering. And putting that extra story in to get you even more hooked. you want to get to the end but then again you just don't !!!!
