Meg McKettrick longs for a baby...husband optional. Perfect father material is gorgeous Brad O'Ballivan, old flame and new owner of his family's ranch in Stone Creek. But Meg, as strong, proud, and stubborn as her ancestors on Indian Rock's Triple M ranch, wants to do things her way: the McKettrick way. And Brad feels just as strongly about the O'Ballivan way.
Love, marriage, babies, and a lifetime to share: that's what Brad wants. Not a single night of pasion, an unexpected pregnancy, and a woman who won't budge. For a rugged rodeo cowboy who never gives up, it's a battle of wills he intends to win...and nothing matters more than claiming Meg's wild McKettrick heart.
but, please, please, please, never use this narrator again. She can't do men's voices. Her voice is pleasant, but not for this!

Loving animals as I do I wanted to delve into this story as soon as possible. Animals are given pivotal roles and how they impact the decisions and lives of the characters in the story is woven seamlessly through the book. I enjoyed the different family members, with their varying "gifts" and how those gifts worked to further the story line and interactions of the characters was well done. I would have given four stars to this review, however, the narrator sounded lackluster and the "listening" of her narration seemed to move in slow motion. I was able to amp up the speed of narration and that seemed to help a bit.

I love Linda Miller stories becausethey are base on love and family. I only thing that kept me from enjoying this story is the narrator, she is talking to slow and whipsering. The only character that you can understand is Megan. My favorite is McKettrick Heart. I give this book a 3 because i just like Linda Miller.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
It would have been a 5 star review if Tom Stechschulte or Jim Dale or Davina Porter narrated it. This book wasn't her strongest one written but a strong narrator would have made it enjoyable.
Would you ever listen to anything by Linda Lael Miller again?
I love Linda Lael Miller and I own most of her books however, a poor narrator can ruin a book. I tried to read the Harry Potter series and I couldn't get past the first chapter. However I listened to them and to this day Jim Dale's performance is incredible. I have listened to the HP series at least a dozen times just to hear his narration.
How could the performance have been better?
The narrator was dismal! She had very little inflection. She sounded like a drunk, breathy robot. She spoke too quietly. I turned up my volume on my headphones as high as they would go and I still couldn't hear well. There was no difference between characters. I had a difficult time knowing who the HELL which character was speaking. It turned out that I was so sick of the story that I didn't care if I missed any details. I never have to listen to this story again! I would return it if I could. I was so disappointed. I find myself more upset than I should be. The narrator can make or break a book and all the kings horses and all the kings men could not but this book back together again. I am listening to the series in order and I felt the need to listen to them in order but this is the exception. I will help future listeners, Meg and Brad get together now listen to the next book.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The McKettrick Way?
If I were editor I would have Linda start over and get a different narrator.
I would have to agree that the narrator speaks too slowly. Otherwise, I loved it.
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Yes because it answered questions from books that followed
If you’ve listened to books by Linda Lael Miller before, how does this one compare?
Since Brad plays such a prominent role in his sister's books I expected his own story to be even more superior to the others. Unfortunately, I just didn't think it was up to par.
Have you listened to any of Lauren Fortgang’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
This was the first I have heard, but hope it will not be the last.
Did The McKettrick Way inspire you to do anything?
I love the family characters, the way they stick together, stand strong for themselves and for each other.
Any additional comments?
I picked one of Linda Lael Miller's books by pure accident and am so glad I did. She has become one of my favorite authors. Her characters are strong but realistic. You can see the scenery, the houses, rooms and situations. Her plots and story lines are great and yiu fall in love with her humor. I REALLY like that while her books are love stories, I don't have to skip pages and pages of pure sex. She doesn't get down and dirty, she doesn't get so descriptive that the scene is ruined. Thank you for that.
Any additional comments?
This story is a quick read that features Meg McKettrick and her 12 year old son, as well as Brad O’Bullivan, a former singer who now runs a ranch. Meg was Brad's former girlfriend whose heart was broken when he left her for a singing career. A very unique story with supernatural elements all rolled into a contemporary western romance.<br/><br/>
I knew from the reviews that the narrator was a disappointment to other readers so I wasn't surprised to find that to be the case. The reasons I chose to go ahead with this title was to find out what had happen to this last member of the McKettrick clan in Arizona. It seems to me that Ms Miller used the story of Meg to bridge the saga into the Creed family. I felt it was a poorly built bridge and the narrator made the whole thing seem that much more silly. The story ends with a Creed knocking on the door. I can only wonder if Ms Miller was more interested in moving her readers into a new series than she was in really developing the characters of Meg and her new found father and sister. I have truly enjoyed getting to know the McKettrick's of Arizona but I feel Ms. Miller missed with Meg.
If there is one redeeming quality to mention about this title it would be coming to understand the importance of a good narrator to the overall quality and enjoyment of an audio book.
I like the McKettrick series, I like the horses, the spirits and I like how the couples meet. It was a little unbelievable that Meg forgives Brad, but he gets all upset when she didn't tell him about a miscarriage after he left her to live his life.
