This is NOT the same author that wrote the McKettrick series and the Man from Stone Creek, Mojo Sheepshanks etc. Tear 10 pages out of this book and it would be appropriate for 2nd graders on how to treat a dog and a pony. For a very long time Ms. Miller was one of my top three authors but the last three books have all been the same. She has undertaken a one woman campaign on behalf of shelter animals to "educate the world". I am an animal lover who has owned countless dogs, cats, horses and cows during my 77 years and I have rescued my share but these books are just not up to her writing standards... Every page, every other word is about the antics and the care of animals. PLease go back to writing more of what you were famous for...

I agree with other reviewers who felt this book spent more time on animals and children, despite how much we all love animals and children. Has it now become the prerequisite to writing Historical & Modern Western Romance novels that you also be an animal rights/animal shelter advocate who infuses her books with promoting that agenda, and also writes (conveniently on the heels of the Twilight storyline success) about paranormal/vampire/werewolf stories? That's quite the unique formula until you realize a lot of these Romance authors are all towing the line and doing exactly the same thing as the next writer. Not unique at all, and entirely disappointing. As for this book, as much as I like animals and children, I got annoyed with the over-engaging storyline of how the dogs had play dates, the long descriptions on how the dogs interacted with each other and the human emotions they expressed, and how it took a 4-page spread to talk about the dogs and how they "shimmered" in the sunlight when they were sleeping, and how Kendra took out her cell phone to capture the loveliness of the moment. UGH!! Yes, little Madison sure was cute but too much of Madison's cute sayings and behavioral issues (waste of time talking about her stealing her peer's cowgirl boots at school because she was anxious to have her own!) along with the dogs antics just made me gloss over those parts. Linda seems to be in a grandmotherly frame of mind when she wrote this book. I thought this would be more about the main characters, but it was more about superficial side-stories and setting up Boone and Tara. Let's hope that book does not spend an inordinate amount of time talking about Boone's trouble boys. Because let's face it, that's not why we want to read these books.

I am done with LLM books she can't get the job done anymore I have read her books for a long time but the last few have been hard to stay with its more about taking care of the dog and pony so don't waste your money on Big Sky Mountain.

There are only few books with a great storyline. This was one of them. A great summer read.

In true Linda Lael Miller fashion, this book is “eye candy”. True, you know how the book is going to turn out, but getting there is the fun. I will always have this author in my read list.

I almost passed on reading this book based on some of the reviews. I am glad, I took the time to find out how wornderful this book was for myself. I do think the second book is better then the first.

I really enjoyed the story of Hutch and Kendra. I love all of this author's books. Her characters are easy to fall in love with and the story keeps you interested.

Posted on Romancing the Book's blog Reviewed by Stacey Review Copy Provided by Netgalley I am normally a fan of Linda Lael Miller’s books but Big Sky Mountain, in my opinion, was not a favorite. Book two in the Parable, Montana/Big Sky series, found me a little lost and the blurb did not truly represent the book. Kendra and Hutch have a past together; one that clearly neither of them are over. Their lives currently have them both in places where the last thing they need is the complications of renewing their relationship. Hutch just recently left someone at the altar and Kendra just adopted her dead ex-husband’s illegitimate daughter! Seriously! Realistically, those two stories could have made Big Sky Mountain interesting but Ms. Miller was clearly more interested in setting up plots for future books because there were so many other things going on in this book that at times Hutch and Kendra were merely background noise. There were three other stories (at least!) brewing in this book and they were a little too distracting because it made you forget your main characters. Too much stopping and starting of the stories. Linda Lael Miller is a wonderful writer. The way she tells a story makes even a story that’s hard to read easy. Kendra and Hutch deserved a full story considering this was their book.

I was halfway through reading Big Sky Mountain when I found out that this is a second in a series. Somehow I missed that but it made no difference, Big Sky Mountain is a wonderful story and I enjoyed every bit of it! Big Sky Mountain opens with a wedding. Hutch is standing at the altar when he shocks everyone by calling off the wedding. The would-be-bride and her friends are understandable upset and start a website bashing Hutch. That night he goes to his half brother Slades’s house for dinner and runs into his lost love Kendra and her adopted daughter Madison. Kendra’s story along with her adoption of Madison is such an interesting one. Madison just touches your heart and totally steals the book. Kendra has some issues but it is see how she and Hutch finally come back together for good Now I need to go back and read Big Sky Country the first in the Swoon-Worthy Cowboys series. I can’t wait to see what I missed!

Watched. He had already absorbed so many souls that he possibly had learned every shout in the book.

I'm really loving the characters and stories from Parable, Montana. Book two is just as laid back and casual as book one, but throwing in a four year old girl adds a bit of craziness in a good way. I loved Madison - the daughter Kendra adopted sometime between the two books. There's a short story all on its own there that is revealed as you read through the book, so I'll let you read the details yourself. I always love the antics of young children in these fun light-hearted romances, and Madison definitely fit the bill to liven things up a bit. The opening of this story was not handled well though. I understand that Miller was probably looking for some shock factor, but starting with your leading man (Hutch) at his wedding to someone other than Kendra was very confusing. There was also a lot of things that happened in between books and I felt like I had missed an entire story. Too much happened "off pages" to have it flow well right off the bat. Now once I figured out all the things that were going on, I really enjoyed the story. Kendra and Hutch have been crushing on each other for years, but never really acted on it. Kendra doesn't think Hutch is mature enough to be a father to her new little girl, and Hutch just seems to hold a grudge against Kendra for their last break up. Everyone around them begins to conspire against them though, and eventually they cave and decide to give it a go. There is still a lot of doubt on both their parts though, and this continues Miller's theme of over-coming your past to move on with your future so you can be happy.
