The “First Lady of the West,” #1 New York Times bestselling author Linda Lael Miller is back with a new series about Parable, Montana—where love awaits.
The illegitimate son of a wealthy rancher, Sheriff Slade Barlow grew up in a trailer hitched to the Curly-Burly hair salon his mother runs. He was never acknowledged by his father—until now. Suddenly, Slade has inherited half of Whisper Creek Ranch, one of the most prosperous in Parable, Montana. That doesn’t sit well with his half brother, Hutch, who grew up with all the rights of a Carmody. Including the affections of Joslyn Kirk, homecoming queen, rodeo queen, beauty queen—whom Slade has never forgotten.
But Joslyn is barely holding her head up these days as she works to pay back everyone her crooked stepfather cheated. With a town to protect—plus a rebellious teenage stepdaughter—Slade has his hands full. But someone has to convince Joslyn that she’s responsible only for her own actions. Such as her effect on this lawman’s guarded heart.
What I thought:
A great read! I thoroughly enjoyed being welcomed to the location of the newest trilogy books from Linda Lael Miller - Parable, Montana. The characters were welcoming and easy to like (most of them!) and the setting of this story is once again a beautiful piece of the west that we've grown to love right along with the author. We're also introduced to characters that will be more established in the coming book(s) (I hope!)
If you're into contemporary romance, particularly set in the west, you'll be happy to read Big Sky Country. An easy read, great for your vacation reading or just a little bit of escaping from the everyday!
