Despite a promising beginning, this novel is a mess. Within a few short chapters it started to drag, with lots of details that contributed nothing to the plot. For example, lots of words to describe how the heroine gets ready in the morning (she showers, tames her frizzy hair in a pony tail or a braid, etc.) and goes to work. The first time I thought it was to give us an idea of how she looked when H sees her, or something like that. But no, there is no purpose to the detail and we have to read it almost every time someone gets up and ready to face the day - all through the book.
Then while the lust between H/h is well done, it is hard to see where forever-after love comes in - there really isn't enough communication between them to make the love believable. There is lots about the dog and cat but they feel like filler. Oh, and how come we had to read pages about the cat's pregnancy and never hear about the kittens? There are also a lot of unanswered plot questions which are never resolved and presumably are meant to whet your appetite for the next installment (e.g. what happened in London? to name but one unanswered question) -- it had the opposite effect on me; I will not be reading the sequels. I cannot recommend this book and I wish I hadn't spent the hours reading it all the way through, I should have stopped as soon as it started to drag.

Quite a bit of fluff. So predictable and formulaic. I got it thinking it would be somewhat about the Montana setting....wrong...the geographic references , which were few and far between,we're totally inaccurate. This very light romance could have been set anywhere in the west. Don't waste your time or $. Hard to imagine a whole series about the fictional town of Parable and it's shallow characters. No thanks.

This was the first book that I had ever read by this author and I have to admit that she drew me in with Joslyn and Slade and the other characters and I have now read every book in this series plus several of her other series. Despite Joslyn feeling like a black sheep in the town she always considered home, she felt the need to return and try and right some wrongs that were done by her step-father. This brings her and Slade into one anothers space as Slade is trying to figure out his future and to see if it will involve Joslyn.

I am half way through and there's been precious little action in the book. Some errands, a barbecue, a horseback ride, and a lot of feeding of pets. Do I really need pages and pages of making coffee and sandwiches? Where is the substance? I'm not talking about sex. But no one's getting laid, either. I never give up on books but this books is feeling like a chore.

Edited to add: I skimmed through to the end. I could not care less about Joslyn and Slade. I do have one question: where the hell are the damn kittens?

This book sucks.

Big Sky Country is the first in a new series by best-selling author Linda Lael Miller. Set in the town of Parable, Montana, it offers a glimpse of a small town and the rugged men and women who inhabit it.

Sheriff Slade Barlow is the illegitimate son of wealthy-and now deceased--rancher John Carmody. Slade is a hometown boy, often looked down on for his humble beginnings. He's had a failed marriage and isn't looking for anyone, but that's before Josslyn Kirk returns to the town where she grew up. Joss lived in a mansion belonging to her stepfather. She was rich, priviledged and, admittedly spoiled. But that has changed, and she's back, needing to right some wrongs, even though she wasn't to blame. Two friends stood by her-Kendra Shepard and John Carmody's son, Hutch. She's come to work for Kendra in her real estate office.

Soon after arriving, she runs into Slade Barlow and the sparks begin to ignite. There's a lot of mis-concepts to put to rest. Slade didn't run in Joss' circle, and even thought he's attracted to her, he knows they're worlds apart. It doesn't help that she's friends with his step-brother, with whom he doesn't get along. And worse, when Slade discovers the man who never acknowledged his while living, has left him a grand inheritance, it only compounds his troubles with Hutch.

This is a complex story, well told. The reader sees the conflicts that drive each character, sees Slade's tender relationship with his mother and his stepdaughter. Joss finds herself wanting to fit in to a town that both likes and condemns her. And she can't get her desire for Slade out of her system.

Readers will enjoy Slade's interaction with stepdaughter Shea, Joss' encounters and discussions with various four-footed creatures and her joy at being reunited with beloved housekeeper Opal. The romance is slow-moving in the nicest way. And when Joss and Slade finally get together, there are sparks enough to ignite the town. Ms. Miller is an expert at believable passion and she writes a beautifully paced story.

4.5 stars.

I was so disappointed with this book as I am such a fan of Linda Lael Miller. Her McKettrick series was awesome but this series is really lacking. The book was so slow and simple I kept thinking things would pick up but it never did. The characters didn't have any pizzazz or personality. I was so looking forward to a new series from her but felt like it could no way stand up to her past books. I hate writing negative reviews but I would want someone to tell me the truth.

This is the first book in this series and I'm disappointed. Not anywhere near as good as the McKettrick series.
The hero and heroine barely have a conversation, she gets so flummoxed when he's around. Their relationship is about as deep as a puddle which would have been acceptable if there was more romance. Really all she did was get real nervous around him.
Lots of loose ends in this book, too. I'm guessing that many of these are for plot lines in the following books but it was very distracting from the story I wanted to read about in this book. Also many issue and insecurities with the main characters didn't get resolved or even addressed.
Overall not as good as I hoped and actually pretty disappointed.
