I picked this challenge to do:
Read a book you’ve had for over a year (from the clearing off the shelves list)
Self-made tycoon Landry Sutton heads to Hangman Bend's Ranch to sell his land to his brother Zane. Though he's got cowboy in his blood, Landry plans to return to city life before the dust even settles on his boots. 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? 
Not sure how I got so behind on Linda Lael Miller but I have. I'm trying my best to get caught up and should be soon. One of the things I like about her books is the fact that for me they are comfort reads. I know no matter what I be able to get into it quickly and like it. 

In fact, that's just what happened with Big Sky Secret. Right away I fell into the story and got lost in it. I just love it when that happens. You don't even realize how far into the book you've gotten because you enjoy it so much. 

I loved both Landry and Ria. They just work together. I also really liked the bison. These two might take a bit to make it work but you can see it happening. 

I felt for Ria and her back story. She doesn't have the greatest family and I can tell you I really didn't like her sister and mother. She a widow and at the point in her life where she has to make some changes. She's well liked by those around her and have found her place. 

In the beginning of the book, I wasn't the biggest fan of Landry but he did grow on me. I liked his brother Zane much better. But as the book goes on he learns to be a better person and not take his brother for granted. 

So this might not have been my favorite book of hers but I still really enjoyed it. Have any of you read her?
