Review: Big Sky River by Linda Lael Miller
Big Sky River
Parable, Montana #3
Linda Lael Miller
Sheriff Boone Taylor has his job, friends, a run-down but decent ranch, two faithful dogs and a good horse. He doesn’t want romance—the widowed Montanan has loved and lost enough for a lifetime. But when a city woman buys the spread next door, Boone’s peace and quiet are in serious jeopardy.
With a marriage and a career painfully behind her, Tara Kendall is determined to start over in Parable. Reinventing herself and living a girlhood dream is worth the hard work. Sure, she might need help from her handsome, wary neighbor. But life along Big Sky River is full of surprises…like falling for a cowboy-lawman who just might start to believe in second chances.
I love reading Linda Lael Miller. She writes wonderful stories that make me laugh and cry. She's one of those authors that yes I get behind on her but I never stop buying her. She's a comfort read for me. That's how much I like her.
Big Sky River is book three in the Parable, Montana series. You meet both Boone and Tara in prior books. I love Boone, but Tara was a different story.
You know about Boone's heartbreak and learn how hard he's had to cope with losing his wife. He's also in a way lost his two boys but doesn't even realize it yet. You need to read the book to understand more of what I'm saying. I liked how hard he worked to show his boys how much he cares. He did the right thing for them before and now.
As much as I love Boone, Tara is a different story.
She's a very judgmental person that goes on what she thinks she knows, not the facts. Her thoughts about Boone for almost half the books really set me on edge. I know that she also had issues to work though and that love and hate are two sides of the same coin but....
I did eventually start to like Tara, as the book progresses you learn more about her and see her internal struggle with her thoughts. These two turn out to be perfect for each other. I'm so glad that I finally found the time to read their story. I'm hoping it doesn't take me as long to read the next story in the series. I'm really trying to catch up on certain authors and she's one of them.
If you've read Big Sky River or any other book by Linda Lael Miller I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! 💓
