My review:

I love a good contemporary western and Linda Lael Miller is really good at bringing it alive with the decent plot and characters to die for. It is a second book of hers that I read. The first one was from the same series - Parable, Montana - Big Sky Summer and when I got the chance to review Big Sky Wedding I had no doubts that I wanted to read it. I fell in love with the surroundings and characters of Parable and I was glad to meet them again in Big Sky Wedding.

Plot:

All the books in the series are standalone books where different couples are the main characters. Big Sky Wedding gives you the story of Brylee and Zane. I met Brylee and many other characters already in Big Sky Summer.

Anyway, Brylee has experienced something that no woman ever should - she was jilted while walking down on the isle for getting married. Even though she understood, that it was a right thing for her in long term, it broke her heart and she lived in humiliation for quite some time. Now, being an owner of a big company, she keeps her heart safe from men and focuses on her company. That is until Zane shows up.

Zane is an A-list Hollywood player and has come back to his roots, at least for a while. Neither Brylee nor Zane are looking for love, but it just happens. The attraction between them is too strong to avoid and when Zane realizes that Brylee is not just a woman, but the woman, he is going after what he wants - Brylee.

It is a love story, but besides that, there are other great things about this book - the dialogue was captivating and witty and I got a lot of giggles while reading. I truly enjoyed all the characters in the story and the Parable itself. The author gives you quite bright and vivid pictures of Parable, so it's impossible not to want visiting the place and experiencing it in person!

Characters:

Before writing about the characters, I was thinking, that in Linda Lael Miller's books there are always two very important non-human characters - family and community. Family ties play a big role in the book and it influences almost all the characters either they want it or not. And community is another big influencer in Parable. It is tight-knitted society where almost everybody knows everyone and when it matters, they are there for you to help and support. I loved that!

I liked Brylee already in the previous book where her background story was mentioned and I was excited to see what the author had to offer to Brylee. It is mortifying and humiliating to be left in front of the family and whole Parable just few minutes before getting married, so Brylee had to struggle to get over the humiliation. It takes a very strong person to have faith and trust in love after that. So she has hidden her heart away. Little did she know when Zane came into the picture. I was happy to see, how she step by step gave herself a chance. She definitely deserved a happy ending.

Zane comes from a family with no means and he understands the value of the family.I loved how he took in his brother, knowing, that family matters and that family is exactly what Nash needs. I also admired Zane's persistence in his relationship with Brylee. Loved the relationship dynamics and how Zane proved, that he truly loves her.

I think Linda Lael Miller does a great work with all the other characters in the book. She gives them their own stories and you keep wondering which ones of them will be the main characters in the upcoming books.

Big Sky Wedding is finally Brylee's story. Brylee has not been to happy since she was left at the alter by Hutch. He ended up marrying someone else. Brylee threw herself into her business and made it a success. She lives in her own apartment on the ranch that she and her brother own.

Newcomer to the area is Zane Sutton. Zane was a rodeo champion turned actor and decided to come to Montana and live on the ranch his brother Landry and him had bought years ago. Zane leaves a note and a big check to his housekeeper back in LA. Zane's house needs work badly he is sleeping on a air mattress.

Landry calls him up and tells him his father dropped off their half brother 12 year old Nash. They really don't know him. His mother is out of the picture. Landry is supposed to go on a business trip overseas tomorrow. So he is putting him on a plane and Zane better meet the plane.

Nash does not have much and his life had not been to stable. At least when he and Landry were kids and his dad took off they had their mom's love. Things were tough but they were together. They went shopping and bought some groceries and beds. Then before they get to comfortable Zane gets another call on his cell from Cleo. She is mad that Zane just took off and left her. She was too old to look for a different employer. She orders him too buy her a first class ticket in two days.

Zane had met Brylee on his property and liked her a lot first of all. When she saw his dog the next day and read his collar she came over to give him a lecture. Slim was starving and she could not believe he was not taking better care of his dog. Zane had just got the stray from the pound before moving here. He had not time enough yet to make a difference.

Zane's idea of a simpler life has not going as planned. He now had his brother living with him, dog, housekeeper and his ranch was torn up getting it fixed like Cleo wants. Even Landry shows up to see what the ranch they had bought and split looks like.

Brylee is coming out more and more socially now and just not working. She is also scared to trust a guy now.

I like that now that Zane realizes that Nash needs someone at first was not happy but steps up to the plate and takes care of Nash and when he promises something he will keep his word. He remembers his childhood and how his father would come and go. He plans to make Nash a part of his family give him stuff he needs and wants.

This romance novel is all about relationships between different people and what they want in the future. Their is a couple of love scenes towards the end of the book that I skipped over. It kept my attention and I read it in one setting. Did not want to put it down. I do want to know Landry's story and hope the next book is his.

I was given this book to read and asked in exchange to give honest review of it by NetGalley and Harlequin.

    I waited months for this book, and I can honestly say I wasn't a bit disappointed. I love meeting new characters as well as catching up with the ones I have read about in the past. I highly recommend this and all of Ms. Miller's books!

    Linda Miller comes through again.

    I really like her series books. It is interesting to see the characters grow and interact and see how their lives intermingle.

    Finally!

    Finally! We get to see Brylee fall in love. And, in this case love was worth waiting for. Zane and Brylee's love story was so enjoyable.

    I am way past book reports but love anything by Linda Lael Miller. Saved all the series and read them one after the other. Love her characters and hate to see a series end.
