This book bothered me for many reasons. The first of which, but not the most important, being that Lily, who was in an abusive marriage and recently got out of it and filed a restraining order against her ex, meets and marries someone within 9 months. I would think that an abusive relationship would make her more traumatized and more apt to be cautious when entering a new relationship. Another irritant were her other two sisters, Willa and Tess. They, of course, fell in love with the other two hot guys in the novel, but they also learned something from them. And in return, the guys learned...oh, wait, they didn't learn anything. Aren't relationships about give and take? Learning from each other to become better people? The men, apparently, were perfect, while the women had much to learn. (It's hard to convey sarcasm in a blog...) I'm also not a fan of points of view changing from paragraph to paragraph. I don't mind if it changes after a scene or after a chapter, but not within paragraphs. It gets too confusing when you're trying to figure out what the characters are thinking or feeling. Too much bouncing around. This book paralleled the other book about three sisters living on (or near) a ranch that I read earlier, "True Colors". I was hoping that this one would rate a little above that one, but I'm not so sure. The characters were a bit deeper, and the mystery of the murderer helped to hold my interest, but overall the little details about the women and about relationships bugged me. I'm hoping I haven't lost my taste for romances, because some can be quite entertaining!

Nora Roberts is so clever with words and descriptions. Loved the details, action and multiple romantic stories against a wonderful Montana setting. The TV movie unfortunately did not do justice to this book!

I have always thought that the book is almost always better than the movie. In this case I was right. I like the movie but the book was so much better! Things that happened in the book were not even in the movie or it was changed in the movie. I really liked this book. I liked the characters had so much more depth to them. I will read this book again.

Once again Nora Roberts delivers a captivating story. Three sisters with only one thing in common, their deceased father Jack Mercy, are thrust into a situation none of them saw coming. The middle sister, Lily, is running from a troubled and abusive past. The eldest sister, Tess, hails from Hollywood. Accustomed to the finer things of life, she is perhaps the most irritated to have her perfect and comfortable life disturbed. The middle sister, Willa, has her world turned upside down as her father's tyrannical grip reaches out to control her life from the grave. No one is sorry to see Jack Mercy die, but his actions have far reaching effects that change the lives of many people. Hunted by the past, the sisters must face the dangers that await them together, or be torn apart forever from those they come to love. If they are successful not only will they gain the fortune of Jack Mercy's legacy, but they will find the true bond of sisterhood that will last a life time.

Great Book!! It will have you turning the pages all the way up to the very last page. Just when you think you know who the killer is, NR throws in a twist and you think it's someone else. I was guessing all the way up until they told you the name of the person (I can usually figure it out way before that). On top of that it has STEAMY hot sex!! I enjoyed getting to know each of the sisters and watching them let their guard down to find love and each other. It's a book about romantic relationships, friendships, sibling relationships, it's thrilling, exciting, funny, and sexy! It's a must read -- I might even read it again next summer.

Great book! Romance and mystery all in one! Great surprise ending it isn't what you think it will be. Just purchased 2 more of her books to go along with the other 20 I already have!

Montana Sky is packed full of mystery, suspense, drama, hissing and back-biting, romance and friendships, new and old. It's a great book for any reason: relaxing, book clubs, sunbathing, etc....

Okay, so I first started reading Nora Roberts' books when I was eleven years old. Montana Sky was the fourth book I read by her. The characters are amazing because each has a different personality and they all work together in an unique way. Tess, Lily and Willa are sisters who share the same father. The father was a complete jerk. He leaves them with 1/3 interest in his ranch. The catch...they have to live there for a year together. The book might start out slow for some but as you read, you feel yourself being sucked into the story. Warning...there is a lot of death and gore so if you are weak stomached...heads up. I found the book to be beautiful and empowering. Three women form a bond and fall in love...proving that love (all kinds) conquer even the worst of times. There are many twists and turns that leave you hanging. I have read this book so many times that I had to go buy a new copy. Amazing!!

I've been reading Nora Roberts since 98. This was the first book I ever read of hers, and is completely responsible for the over flowing book shelf dedicated to her in my house. Nora Roberts is an amazing author, and this book is the shiniest drop in her sea of words. Worth a second, third, and even forth read!

I loved this book. At first it started off a little slow but once the story got going it was GREAT! And BEN-- :) I LOVE BEN! His personality just radiated sexiness. I loved how Ms. Roberts still had you guess who the killer was right up to the end! GREAT job!

I have read several Nora Roberts books but this is a favorite! With 30 pages to go I still had 5 suspects, very good writing! It was a heartwarming story full of tender moments and some steamy ones too! Excellent suspense and just enough gore to keep you turning those pages!! Well Done!

Each of the Mercy sisters has their own unique personality. Willa was my fav. She may have been a bit bossy, but she knew exactly what she's doing. Tess is the arrogant and almost useless, yet funny blonde. And Lily is the quiet and sensitive, yet the only one who doesn't fight. This book was so very entertaining. Not one of Nora's Top 5, but in her top 10 best novels.

This is by far THE best book I have ever read. I fell in love with Big Sky country and couldn't wait to see what would happen to these sisters and their men!! IT WOULD BE WONDERFUL AS A MOVIE!

This was a very predictable book and it was full of smut and bad language.

Roberts returns to a successful formula here - three half-sisters with three very different personalities and goals are thrown together when their father dies, leaving them equal shares in his Montana ranch. Strings? Oh yeah. To claim their inheritance the women must live on the ranch for one year - together. Complications? Other than the fact that they really can't stand one another, an abusive ex is stalking one of the women, and someone is slaughtering and scalping people. It's gonna be a long, tense winter! Good thing there are ruggedly handsome love-interests around to keep things toasty.Suspense, mystery, romance, tight plotting... okay, so it's formulaic - it's still a great read.

This was the first Nora Roberts book that I read many years ago and it's still my favorite! I definitely recommend it!!! Lifetime Television is currently making it into a movie that will air sometime in early 2007. I can't wait!!
