Michelle Sanderson may appear to be a strong, independent woman, but on the inside, she’s still the wounded girl who fled home years ago. A young army vet, Michelle returns to the quaint Blackberry Island Inn to claim her inheritance and recover from the perils of war. Instead, she finds the owner’s suite occupied by the last person she wants to see. Carly Williams and Michelle were once inseparable, until a shocking betrayal destroyed their friendship. And now Carly is implicated in the financial disaster lurking behind the inn’s cheerful veneer.

This is a wonderful story about friendship. I would love to visit Blackberry Island. The Inn sounds wonderful. I felt like the narrator struggled with the male voices. The older ladies sounded exactly like the men. After I got used to that it wasn't as distracting because the story was great.

Of course, he didn’t count on falling for Big Sky Country…or Ria Manning. Ria’s starting to settle into country life herself…until she has a close encounter of the terrifying kind with a buffalo. Turns out the peeping monster belongs to the cowboy next door - and he has her running even more scared than his bison. She wants a home where the buffalo don’t roam, and the men don’t either. Could Landry’s homecoming be her heart’s undoing?

Linda Lael Miller paints a beautiful picture of Montana and makes me want to visit. I loved this book and the journey Rhea and Landry went on. If only there were really men like LLM's Montana Men.

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.

I like LLM but sometimes I find her books a little wordy. I have enjoyed all of her books and will continue to listen to as many as Audible offers. LLM paints a beautiful picture of the West and makes me not only appreciate where I live but also promts me to go for a horse ride.

Colleen O'Rourke is in love with love…just not when it comes to herself. Most nights, she can be found behind the bar at the Manningsport, New York, tavern she owns with her twin brother, doling out romantic advice to the lovelorn, mixing martinis, and staying more or less happily single. Ten years ago Lucas Campbell, her first love, broke her heart - an experience Colleen doesn't want to have again, thank you very much. Since then, she's been happy with a fling here and there, some elite-level flirting, and playing matchmaker to her friends. But a family emergency has brought Lucas back to town....

I love Kristan Higgins style of writing. She is smart, witty, and laugh out loud funny. I wish Audible would carry more of her books. I love the Blue Heron series. You can't ever go wrong with Kristan Higgins!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

The Kowalksi clan is fun hearted, wild and they clearly care about their loved ones. The story line is great and well developed. I found myself wishing I were a Kowalksi and could hop on a sled or 4-wheeler. I hope this isn't the end of the Kowalksi saga.
