When Jack Mercy died, he left behind a lot of enemies...and a ranch worth nearly $20 million. Now his three daughters - each born of a different marriage, and each unknown to the others - have gathered to hear the reading of the will.
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)
long and drawn out story
the last couple of books have been boring. the narrators are very hard to listen to
Very hard to listen to
Another page turner from N.Roberts. Many ingredients in this story that caught me & kept me listening. E.Liegh does a great job making each character distinctive truly come to life. Fun cowboy/ranch tale with tidbits of city life too. True "who done it" to the very end.
This was a great book with romance, murder, suspense, heart warming moments & a huge swirl of different emotions & a surprising twist towards the end! Definitely one of my new favorite books. Also, the woman reading the story did a terrific job & even did great voice variations for each of the characters... A must read!
Started slow but when picked up really enjoyed it. Would listen to it again. Really starting to like Nora Roberts. And so far the narrators have been very good
This is a favorite of Nora Roberts for me. The twists of the story are surprising, the foreshadowing is great, and the performance seemed spot-on to me. Liked it lots!! I've listened to it several times over the past couple of years.
I love romance and cultish types of books dealing with magic,supernatural,ghosts,spirits that are long in length. I enjoy thrillers also
Absolutely, I have listened to many of Nora Roberts books and this is by far one of my favorites! I was so wrapped up in it within the first few paragraphs that I couldn't stop.
Most memorable moment to me is when Willa realizes she knows how to love and be loved.
One of the best narrator's possible! She is so adept at falling into character and quickly changing from one to another. Her heartfelt portrayal of Lily in the first of the book set me to wondering what was in store with the other two sisters. You have stubbornness vs hautiness vs docile....what a collision!
When Lily was able to stand up against Jesse and show him how little of a man he really was
The sadistic nature of the "bad guy(s)" was definitely a factor that created a sense of mortality of life for any living creature. Mental illness can be hidden and can whip out and strike at anyone at anytime. The struggles that each had to deal with at one point or another left me with questions of "how would I react" ? Of course , this is just a book, but it certainly made me think about what lies beneath in people we just cannot figure out or think we know but really don't.
Mysterious romantic comedy
I like how a Will and it's stipulations brought a family together that otherwise would have not even met.
She is a great narrator, changing her voice to match each character's personality.
Yes, very much so!
Friend of God... Saved by grace... Mother of 3 gifts... Wife of one... Worship dancer.... Educated by God, Academia and Willy Wonka...
Believe it or not, this is only my second Nora Roberts book - the other I actually read. I thought her material would be too "knight in shining armor' for me. I was pleasantly surprised with Montana Sky. In three words (not necessarily a sentence) I would say the story is about love, identity and discovery.
The most memorable moment of the story for me was when I realized that the individual who I believed was the guilty party was really... well... you will know when you listen. I don't want to spoil the most memorable moment.
Something about the sisters coming together and finding friendship was very moving for me. It was not necessarily a moment in the story but it was something for which to cheer as you listened.
