Book review: Big Sky Secrets (Parable, Montana #6) by Linda Lael Miller
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?
I believe i am a few books behind on this series but i love Linda Lael Miller's cowboys and i had no trouble picking up this book and reading it on it's own. Landry Sutton in s a self made man who came from a terrible childhood with a wonderful mom who struggled to support him and his brother. Now that's he's been there done that and proven himself in the boardroom he's bought a ranch next to his brothers and is trying to figure out if he can fit in there or if he should go back to the boardroom. Into his life comes Ria Manning who buys a flower farm next to his and came there making her own escape from stuff in her own life. Even though they butt heads there is a sizzling attraction there but is is the lasting kind? Can they learn how to move on from past loses and disappointments. I loved Landry and Ria. They were both down but never out. Landry is there for Ria when she needs him and he returns to favor. It's a slow build and then a explosion when they finally let go and let themselves find love again. There are some funny bits between them and then Ria's niece also show's up and her crazy mean half sister to liven things up. Overall a great read that i really enjoyed. Linda Lael Miller knows her cowboys!
