Book review: Big Sky Summer (Parable, Montana #4) by Linda Lael Miller
With his father's rodeo legacy to continue and a prosperous spread to run, Walker Parrish has no time to dwell on wrecked relationships. But country-western sweetheart Casey Elder is out of the spotlight and back in Parable, Montana. And Walker can't ignore that his "act now, think later" passion for Casey has had consequences. Two teenage consequences!
Keeping her children's paternity under wraps has always been part of Casey's plan to give them normal, uncomplicated lives. Now the best way to hold her family together seems to be to let Walker be a part of it-as her husband of convenience. Or will some secrets-like Casey's desire to be the rancher's wife in every way-unravel, with unforeseen results?
This is book 4 in the continuing Parable, Montana series. If you have been following the series you are probably like me and have been waiting for Walker and Casey's story. Thank goodness Walker has a lot of patience where Casey is concerned because it's been a long long time to a happy ending for these two and upon reading their story you might not be sure there will be one. Both seem to half one foot in and one foot out on their relationship. Casey's kept her two kids paternity under wraps for almost 15 years. Walker knew but when along with it thinking it was for the best but was kept around as a family friend. I didn't agree with this idea for the book but it is what it so i decided to sit back and see how it panned out. I was actually pretty happy with how it's handled. Each of the two kids had different reactions to the news when told and then the fall out. They marry which was odd for the convenience of showing the public they are a family unit. Behind it all though Walker and Casey both made mistakes with each other and had issues from their pasts mixing in with those decisions. Finally though they figure out what's important and how they feel and it all comes together of course. I like the way it ended up and i adored Walker. The man is just about a saint with patience and understanding. 4 out of 5 stars for Big Sky Summer by Linda Lael Miller.
