The "First Lady of the West," #1 New York Times bestselling author Linda Lael Miller delivers the stunning finale of her acclaimed series set in Parable, Montana—where love awaits

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?

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
12/01/2013
Ria Manning, young widow and financial expert-turned-flower farmer, has no use for cocky Landry Sutton, newly (and most likely temporarily) back in Parable after making his financial mark in Chicago, or his flower-trampling buffaloes. Landry returns the "disregard," but as sexual awareness sizzles between them, tension mounts, and the pair are forced to reassess. Ria and Landry struggle against the inevitable—and lose in order to win. VERDICT A pair of totally likable protagonists, a cadre of stunning secondary characters ("take no nonsense" housekeeper Cleo and starchy butler Highbridge are standouts), and a setting that seeps into your blood result in a delightful romance and a satisfying finale to Miller's "Big Sky" titles. Miller (Big Sky Wedding) lives in Spokane.
Publishers Weekly
11/18/2013
Veteran bestseller Miller caps off her Big Sky series (Big Sky Country, etc.) with a sweet love story about trust, family, and forgiveness. Landry Sutton, brother of Big Sky Wedding protagonist Zane, and his neighbor Ria Manning have both been in Parable County, Mont., for a year. Formerly a Chicago investment executive, Landry left his competitive city lifestyle behind after his divorce, but he finds himself still longing for something more as he works out his relationships with his family. Ria is equally burdened; she’s a widow who bears complex grief for her imperfect husband’s memory and wrestles with loyalty to her cold half-sister, Meredith. When Landry decides to pursue Ria, the relationship gives both of them the support to forgive the past and move on. Though the quiet story doesn’t quite live up to the dramatic title, Miller’s fans will find all her comforting standbys: romance with a dollop of humor, a few charming animals, and an optimistic happy ending. (Jan.)

Read an Excerpt

Scowling and warm behind the ears, Landry Sutton picked himself up off the hoof-hardened ground of Walker Parrish's main corral. Stubbornly setting his jaw and squaring his shoulders, he laid silent claim to his dignity and finally bent to retrieve what remained of his hat. The bronc, a gelding aptly named Pure Misery, had stomped it flat in the brief but hectic process of throwing him that third and—for today—final time.

Landry reckoned he should be glad his skull hadn't met the same fate as his headgear, but he couldn't quite make the philosophical shift from adrenaline-fused annoyance to gratitude. He was frustrated, embarrassed and pissed off—and those were just the emotions he had names for.

Arrogance on four legs, the sweat-lathered horse took a few prancing turns around the corral, moving outward in ever-widening circles. He snorted once or twice, nostrils flared, neck bowed into a curve, head held high and proud, ears laid so far back they were almost flat against his hide.

Finally, the gelding came to a purposeful halt about a dozen yards away from Landry, hind legs planted firmly in the dirt, flanks quivering with a barely contained strength that seemed about to bust loose in a whole new way, like a primeval thunderstorm.

Go on, cowboy—try it again. That was the message.

Slowly, Landry became aware of their immediate surroundings, his and the horse's—that son of Satan—though most of what lay beyond their battleground was still a dust-roiled haze, a void with its own heartbeat. Landry did register the presence of his brother Zane perched on the top rail of the corral fence. He knew his sibling was looking on with charitable, even benign, interest, waiting to see what would happen next.

Was Landry fool enough to get back on that crazy cayuse, he might have been wondering, or would he finally see reason and call it a day?

"Anything broken?" Zane called, in a jocular drawl. He was only thirteen and a half months older than Landry, but the gap might have been wider by a decade, considering the dynamics between the two of them. Zane tended to come from the place of older-and-wiser, like a father, or a venerable uncle—or a justice of the Supreme Court.

Stung anew, Landry merely glared in Zane's general direction for a few moments, then slapped his ruined hat against one thigh to vent some of the steam still building inside him. A handful of ranch workers—all employed by Walker Parrish, local rodeo-stock contractor and older brother to Zane's wife, Brylee—ducked their heads briefly, in half-assed attempts to hide their grins of enjoyment.

It was no big stretch to figure out what the other men were thinking, of course. After nearly a year in Montana, Landry was still an outsider, still that dandified greenhorn from Chicago, still the perennial dude. Still and always the great Zane Sutton's kid brother.

And not much more.

Six feet tall, smart as hell and a self-made man, an independently wealthy one no less, and a ranch owner in his own right, Landry normally didn't sweat the small stuff. The fact was, he'd never failed at anything he set out to do, in all his thirty-plus years of life, unless you counted his efforts to stay married to Susan Ingersoll without committing murder, that was. To him, the ill-fated marriage had been a disaster, yes, but he wouldn't have described it as an actual defeat. He and Susan never should have tied the knot in the first place, if only because they hadn't wanted the same things, even in the beginning.

Now, aching in every muscle, bones seeming as brittle as if he'd aged by twenty years since breakfast, his pride chafed raw as a sore with the scab ripped off too soon, Landry watched glumly as one of the ranch hands roped the bronc, led him out of the corral and turned him loose in the adjoining pasture.

Zane stood next to Landry now, there in the slowly settling dust. "Buy you a beer?" he said quietly. He started to raise one hand, as if to slap Landry on the back, perhaps in brotherly reassurance, but he must have thought better of the gesture in the end, because he refrained.

It was just a beer, and Landry wanted one badly, but his first impulse was to refuse the offer, all the same. He and Zane had been close as kids, and right up through their late twenties, but then, around the time their mom died…

Well, things had just gone to hell. Some kind of chasm had opened between the brothers, and there didn't seem to be a way across. For the most part, they'd gone their separate ways, Zane taking to the rodeo circuit and eventually winding up in the movies, of all things, while Landry headed for Chicago, a place that had always intrigued him. By going to night school and working days and weekends as a barista at one of the coffee franchises, he'd gotten his degree, taken a job with Ingersoll Investments, originally landing in the mail room. He'd climbed the corporate ladder and eventually met and married the boss's daughter, Susan.

Certain he'd found his niche at long last, Landry had pushed up his figurative sleeves and proceeded to make money—a shitload of it—for the company and, through bonuses and finally a partnership, for himself, as well.

"I wouldn't mind a beer right about now," Landry heard himself say, instead of the "No, thanks" instinct dictated. The more sensible thing would have been to take his sorry self straight home, of course, back to his half of Hangman's Bend. There, he could have tossed back a Scotch or two, gulped down some aspirin and maybe stood in a hot shower until his muscles stopped screaming.

So it was that they walked out of the corral together, Zane and Landry, passing through the gate, shutting it behind them. Zane waved a farewell to the others as he and Landry headed for his rig, a silver extended-cab truck so covered in dried mud that it might have been any color in the spectrum. Zane's adopted mutt, Slim, waited patiently in the bed of the pickup, panting in the bright June sunshine, perfectly content to be just what and where he was.

A person could learn a lot from a dog, Landry reflected silently. Stepping up onto the passenger-side running board, he paused long enough to pat the critter on the head and ruffle his floppy ears. "Hey, dog," he said, with gruff affection. "How ya doin'?"

Talk about your rhetorical question.

Slim wagged his tail, appreciative but, at the same time, taking the greeting as his just due, and then settled down for the short ride over to neighboring Hangman's Bend.

Without pausing, Zane climbed behind the wheel, pushed the ignition button and looked back over one shoulder, acknowledging the dog with a grin. He loved that goofball canine, no question about it, would have let him ride in the cab if the critter had shown any inclination to do so. Slim had recently developed a preference for the back, though, seemed to like riding with a pile of feed sacks and whatever else Zane happened to be hauling at the time, and he showed no signs of changing his mind anytime soon.

"You ought to get yourself a dog," Zane remarked, maneuvering the truck into a slow, wide turn. "They're real good company, you know."

His brother, the authority on loneliness, Landry thought, with an ironic inward sigh. As if Zane had ever suffered any lack of "company," even before he'd settled on the run-down, abandoned ranch outside Three Trees, Montana, the one he and Landry had bought together, sight unseen, a few years before. These days, Zane had his beautiful bride, Brylee, first and foremost. And then there was the formidable but ever-faithful Cleo, their housekeeper—and Nash, Zane and Landry's half brother, a rowdy thirteen-year-old with a childhood behind him that made their hardscrabble upbringing look downright pampered.

"I'll get around to it," Landry allowed, still distracted by other thoughts. "Getting a dog, I mean." A pause, followed by an irritated "There's no hurry, is there?"

Zane didn't answer, and that was all right, because sometimes—and this was one of them—they didn't feel a need to talk. The rig bounced down the long, rutted driveway, dog and gear rattling in the back.

Walker's place, called Timber Creek, was a prosperous spread, to put it mildly, but the dirt trail leading to the main gate was in little better shape than a cow path after a month of pounding rain followed by a ten-year drought. Out here in the wilds of Montana, Landry had observed, folks weren't overly concerned with either convenience or appearances, whether they had two nickels to rub together or not. It probably wouldn't have occurred to most of them to smooth the way with a layer of asphalt. Sure, one or two showy types might have sprung for a load of gravel, if the bills were current and the price of beef was decent, he supposed, but nobody paved a driveway.

Nope, even ranchers as successful as Walker Parrish seemed content to cope with whatever conditions presented themselves—waist-high snow in the winter, the sticky mud of spring, which the locals called "gumbo," or the deep, dry dirt furrows of summer and fall.

There were times, usually short-lived, when the lure of the place eluded Landry completely—like now.

Still cheerfully pensive, Zane drove on. The living quarters on his share of Hangman's Bend Ranch were relatively modest, considering the size of his bank account. He'd been what amounted to a modern-day John Wayne before he suddenly decided to leave movie stardom behind for good, go back to the land and subsequently reinvent himself. Now he and Brylee shared a nicely renovated stone house, large and comfortable, but certainly nothing fancy, by Hollywood standards at least. The barn was sturdy and the old-fashioned garage was detached, with a dented aluminum door that had to be raised and lowered by hand. Neither a tennis court nor a swimming pool marred the landscape.

Brylee was weeding the vegetable garden when Zane and Landry drove in, her ever-present German shepherd, Snidely, supervising from the sidelines.

Zane's bride wore a floppy straw hat, her rich brown hair stuffed fetchingly up inside, a sleeveless blouse and denim jeans, frayed where she'd cut them off above the knees to make shorts. Brylee's long legs were sun-browned, like her arms, and her feet were probably muddy and probably bare.

Seeing the truck, she beamed like a war bride at the approach of an overdue troop train and came toward them, hurrying but graceful, moving between rows of corn and green beans and Bibb lettuce.

Watching Brylee, Landry felt a pang of something sharp and forlorn, bleaker than loneliness, but not quite qualifying as envy, while Zane jumped out of the rig, strode to meet his wife and, with a laugh, swept her right off her feet, swinging her around in a broad circle of celebration and then kissing her soundly.

Slim, like any good country dog, bounded down from the back of the truck and rushed toward his master and mistress, barking, delighted by the ruckus, making himself part of it.

Brylee had lost her hat by then, and her hair spilled down over her shoulders in glorious, coffee-colored spirals, threaded with gold. Belatedly noting Landry's presence, his sister-in-law blushed apricot-pink, a modern-day Eve just now coming to the realization that she and her Adam weren't blissfully alone in the Garden of Eden after all.

So much for a bout of lovemaking right there in the tall grass, Landry thought. He wouldn't have put it past them, if the circumstances were right. Wouldn't have blamed them for it, either.

He smiled a "hello" at Brylee, reached for his hat and remembered that he'd tossed it into the back of Zane's pickup, but the words in his head, surprisingly affable, were meant for his brother. You lucky bastard.

"I promised this yahoo a beer," Zane announced, still grinning, cocking a thumb toward Landry to identify him as the yahoo in question. The taut air around the couple almost snapped, like a rubber band stretched beyond its limits, and then let go. "As you can see, the man's a little the worse for wear."

Although he was sure Zane hadn't meant anything by it, the remark reminded Landry with a wallop that he'd been thrown three times, that his clothes were stiff with dust and dried sweat and a combination of the two and that his boots were caked with manure. Plenty of good old-fashioned dirt had ground itself right into his hide, filling every pore, coating every hair on his head.

Again, it swamped him, that sense of selfconsciousness mingled with some indefinable loss, a factor he'd never had to cope with before the move to Montana.

"I'll be fine out here on the porch," he suggested, and instantly wished he'd kept his mouth shut, if only because the offer sounded so lame.

Brylee smiled warmly. Although she hadn't liked Landry when he first arrived in Parable County, she'd mellowed noticeably since last Christmas, when she and Zane had gotten married. "Don't worry about it," she responded, with a rueful glance at her own grimy feet. "This is a ranch, and dirt comes with the territory."

The screen door creaked just then, and Cleo— Zane and Brylee's housekeeper—trundled through the gap and out onto the porch, her skin a glistening ebony, her dark eyes flashing, her gray hair partially tamed by a bandanna scarf. She looked stern, but that was a pose, Landry suspected, the ruse of a tenderhearted person trying to hold on to a little personal space.

"Say what, Mrs. Sutton?" Cleo challenged, making it clear that she'd overheard Brylee's statement about ranches and the inevitability of dirt. "I just now finished mopping the kitchen floor—it isn't even dry yet—and I don't care how much dirt it takes to make up this ranch. You're not setting foot in my clean house until you hose those feet off good." In the next instant, Cleo's gaze moved over both Zane and Landry, sweeping them up into her good-natured consternation. "Same goes for the two of you. I don't work my fingers to the bone around this place for my health, you know. And a person's got to have standards!"

Zane, apparently used to being lectured, simply grinned and gave the woman an affable salute of acquiescence. The discourse sounded familiar to Landry, too—he could easily imagine that warning coming from Highbridge, not quite so colorful, but with better enunciation and grammar.

Ah, Highbridge. Yet another reason Landry fit in around here about as well as an extra toe in a narrow-soled boot. He employed a butler. What self-respecting cowboy did that?

"You tell me what you want and I'll bring it out here," Cleo prattled on, hands on her hips, elbows jutting. By then, the hint of a grin had appeared in her eyes, and the corners of her mouth twitched slightly. Like Highbridge, she clearly relished stating her opinion, asked for or not.

"Beer," Zane replied lightly. "And make sure it's cold, if you don't mind."

Cleo narrowed her eyes, then fixed Brylee with a look. "Iced tea or lemonade for you," she informed her crisply. "If you're not pregnant, it's not for lack of effort, now, is it, and we both know alcohol is no good for babies."

Brylee shook her head, but her color was high again. "Cleo," she scolded, laughing a little.

    I will always read Linda Lael Miller's books. She is one of my most loved authors. This book was not among my favorites though. There seemed to be little buildup between Ria and Landry. She did give a few pages late in the story explaining how they had known each other for a year and had some brushes with each other. I would have preferred this tension and buildup in the beginning so I could have felt like I was on the ride with them instead of a quickie run down that late in the game.

    I usually LOVE Linda Lael Miller's books. I've read every one of them... several, more than once. This one was a bit schizophrenic to me. There are two distinct stories and they jump back and forth with such a feeling of disconnect that I had to check several times to see if my Noon had bookmarked me incorrectly. It's worth a read, but don't be surprised if you're disappointed. Usually Linda's character development and fleshing out is second to none ... this .. not so much. Sorry. I know I'll read her next one ... but I'm just not quite sure where this book came from, where the characters came from, and what they were thinking. :-(

    Very good contemporary western

    My review:

    I have read all books in the Big Sky Series and Big Sky Secrets was a good ending for saying goodbye to Parable.

    The Big Sky Secrets takes us back to Parable, Montana. Meet Landry who is in Parable, visiting his older brother Zane. When Landry first arrives to Parable, he is having hard time understanding the life on the countryside and he has no plans of staying in Parable. Little does he know. When he meets a widowed Ria,things change. Ria has lost a lot in her life and yet she has managed to build up her life and reputation in Parable. Her heart is broken, but she has a will power to continue petting her effort into her flowers and garden. When a big and terrifying buffalo enters Ria's life, it also brings Landry to her.

    Big Sky Secrets is about family. It's about accepting your past, reconnecting with your family members and making peace and building relationships. Even though Big Sky Secrets was a romance, the emphasize was on family. I loved the supportive characters and there were quite few of them. They were well written and interesting and added value to the romance between Landry and Ria.

    If you haven't read any of the books in the Big Sky series, I highly recommend them. Big Sky Secrets was a heart-warming and interesting book about usual ordinary people who face challenges the life is throwing at them... with love. I will miss Parable!

    I received an e-galley of Big Sky Secrets from the publisher for an honest review.

    So the other day I mentioned how much I loved Linda's work. Her Big Sky series is definitely one of my favorites, and Big Sky Secrets definitely does not disappoint. This is a book full of emotion. More than once I found myself laughing out loud. A couple of times I had to hold back the tears since the family was around and they always look at me funny when I cry while I'm reading. *shakes head* Crazy I know. The close-knit families in this book make me wish I could be transported to Parable. And the imagery Linda provides with the perfect combination of words blows me away every time.

    Landry Sutton is one sweet cowboy with a stubborn streak that would drive most people crazy. And while Ria says she can't stand to be around him, you find out early on that's not really true. The banter between these two from the beginning is great. There is a scene very early on with a couple of buffaloes that get away from Landry's place and find their stopping point in Ria's front yard. That scene alone sucked me and made me want to finish this book. There's no doubt that Landry has his hang-ups. The thing I liked was that Ria helped him see them, but only by being who she was. She didn't try to point them out or use them against Landry. And he did the same for her. Although, admittedly, he was a bit more pushy than she was.

    The secondary characters in this book add so much to the characters of Landry and Ria. If you've read the other Big Sky books you'll be happy to know that pretty much everyone makes an appearance. Some more than others, but it's always fun to see what happened after the fact. Ria's niece was the most well-mannered 17 year old I've read about in a while, and she was great for Ria.

    All-in-all this is a must read book. You won't be disappointed if you like cowboys, sweet stories, and a lot of emotion.

    Hott Synopsis: Fitting in. It¿s not as easy as it looks but Ria

    Hott Synopsis:
    Fitting in. It’s not as easy as it looks but Ria Manning has been giving it one heck of a try. She’s been pretending to fit in her whole life and no one has noticed.
    At least until Landry Sutton showed up. For some reason he thinks he gets her. He does, not that Ria’s ever going to let him know that. When weighing the options of actually fitting in or getting her heart broken again Ria decides that Landry isn’t worth the effort – so she decides to detest him instead.
    At least until a quick kiss in the flower garden destroys all of Ria’s best intentions.

    Hott Review:
    When I started this book I expected it to be like several others in this series. I mean, it seems like almost ever one of them has had displaced kids in them. I, however, was thrilled to be wrong. Yes, Ria’s niece is with her but really it works perfectly in the story. This was a nice series finale (at least it appears to be a Parable finale).
    I enjoyed both Ria’s and Landry’s personalities and this book definitely brought me back around to the series – because I haven’t liked all of them!

    First I have to say that Linda Lael Miller is one of my favorite

    First I have to say that Linda Lael Miller is one of my favorite authors. She never disappoints with any book she has written. Big Sky Secrets was no different. I loved the story, I loved both Landry and Ria and it was good to check in with Zane and Brylee. This love story seemed to move a little slower than the rest of the Parable books in the series. But it was still awesome and I definitely recommend it.

    Great book

    Great book. I'm not going to say that I felt that this was a great ending to the series because I hope that Ms. Miller will be adding more. I loved Landry and Ria's story. It was sweet and warm, a real feel good book.

    I Also Recommend:

    I absolutely loved this book, probably a little more then I like

    I absolutely loved this book, probably a little more then I liked Big Sky Wedding, which was also a fantastic book. I love Landry, his personality is fantastic. I love the dynamic between he and Highbridge. I highly recommend this and all of the Big Sky series!!
