Review: McKettricks of Texas "Garrett" by author Linda Lael Miller

McKettricks of Texas is a series by author Linda Lael Miller. This one is entitled Garrett. This series is about 3 brothers Tate, Garrett and Austin. Somehow i didn't review "Tate's" book which came out in February. You can read a excerpt for both Tate and Garrett's books here on Linda's website. If your not familiar with Linda Lael Miller's writing you can start with Tate's book then move onto Garrett's then you'll be ready for Austin's story in July of this year. You can read a excerpt for Austin on Linda's website as well. For now here is a little blurb about Garrett's book.

Fast track up the political ladder, fast cars, fast women—that’s Garrett McKettrick. Make that was. A scandal has brought him home to Blue River, a place where a man can slow down, take stock and plan his next move. Which doesn’t include staying at the family ranch with his brothers. A city boy for a long time now, Garrett doesn’t think he has the land in his blood anymore. But Blue River has other attractions, like his former high school nemesis, Julie Remington.

Now a striking woman and much-respected teacher, Julie comes complete with a precocious four-year-old cowboy, a three-legged beagle and deep ties to the community. Good thing they have nothing in common—except their undeniable attraction and a future brighter than the Texas sun.

This series is about 3 brothers and 3 sisters. Tate finds a love he lost years ago in his book when he and Libby get together and in Garrett's book Libby's sister is staying in Tate's family home while her rented cottage is being fumigated and due some bad things happening to Garrett he finds himself back at the family home as well. ( Tate and Libby do not live there) Julie ( Libby's sister) has this precious 4 year old son who is smart and funny and you just love him. Garrett finds himself loving the boy too as well as his mother but he is also torn between the ranch and any political aspirations he might have. There is of course some ranch drama thrown in to keep things more interesting. This book follows along after Tate's story nicely. I give it 4 out of 5 Modokker Book Pick stars. If your looking for a nice romantic read with some drama mixed in this one is for you.

Linda Lael Miller has some other series involving the McKettricks you might like like if you enjoy this book. You can find a list here on Linda's website. I've read myself about half the books listed there.
