    One thought on “Big Sky River”

    1. ARC kindly provided by Harlequin HQN via Net Galley.This is my second Linda Lael Miller book. Both times I've picked up her book thinking that I was getting a cowboy romanceyou know, horses, cows, dirty sweaty men with hearts of gold that call the ladies “ma’am.” Well, sigh! It was not to be, either time. The only animals involved were dogs and chickens, and our hero Boone wears a cowboy hat but that’s the only nod to the Midwestern lifestyle of the good ole USA. I was really disappointe [...]

    2. Very sweet and enjoyable story. Boone and Tara have a bad first meeting. And every time they meet afterwards, they always pick on each other and call each other out on what they feel is the other’s least likeable traits. I especially thought I would be annoyed with Tara in the beginning because she seemed like a high maintenance woman. However, we realize early on that this is not true. Most of what she says comes from her undiscovered crush on Boone. She is also a great mother to her twin ste [...]

    3. This is a sweet, uncomplicated little romance about a widower named Boone who is done with grieving and a divorcee named Tara who is ready to give love another chance after a failed marriage. Due to an accident that requires surgery on her husband's knee, Boone's sister asks him to take back his sons who she has been raising since the death of Corrie, Boone's wife. He does so reluctantly, feeling out of his depth and inadequate. His youngest son doesn't help matters by threatening to run away. T [...]

    4. Decided to dip my toes back into the LLM world because she is coming out with a Civil War romanceor so I heard, so I am so up for that. I have had a mad on for awhile because she left us hanging with the Mojo Sheepshanks series, but if anyone can do a good Civil War romance it will be LLM. So this book was good, nothing surprising and I don't think I am going to continue with the rest of the series. I will just wait for the CW romance and move on.

    5. Blah. Blerg. Meh. A whole lot of skimming and very little interest in what was going on. The urge to DNF this one a few times was very real. The author's tendency to summarize and focus on mundane daily details just did nothing for the story or me. If I wanted to know how someone goes about their day I wouldn't be reading this book. Just saying. This didn't really read like a cowboy romance story at all. Because a. The hero isn't really a cowboy, doesn't even own a cow or horse like the blurb sa [...]

    6. Boone isn’t husband or father material. His wife died shortly after their second son was born and ever since then his sister has raised the kids and Boone has been on his own. Getting by.Tara adores children, but she has no right to see her daughters. Legally she’s just their stepmom. And her ex is a jerk. Kind of like her neighbor, who lives in his run-down, eyesore of a trailer and never does a thing to fix it up.It’s possible, though, that Tara may have Boone all wrong. In fact, it’s [...]

    7. What has happened to Linda Lael Miller? She has always been one of my favorite authors, but this Parable series is nowhere near the high marks she has previously set. Big Sky River was moderately better than the previous two books of the series, but just barely. The pace was slow, the characters were underdeveloped, and it took nearly 260 pages before Boone and Tara even kissed. Since this was billed as a romance novel that's way too long. This book basically followed the same formula as the pre [...]

    8. I love reading Linda Lael Miller. She writes wonderful stories that make me laugh and cry. She's one of those authors that yes I get behind on her but I never stop buying her. She's a comfort read for me. That's how much I like her. Big Sky River is book three in the Parable, Montana series. You meet both Boone and Tara in prior books. I love Boone, but Tara was a different story. You know about Boone's heartbreak and learn how hard he's had to cope with losing his wife. He's also in a way lost [...]

    9. In Linda Lael Miller's third book of her Big Sky Series we see again just why it is that she is considered one of the absolute best at the western romances. Sending us back to Parable Montana and the lives and loves of it's citizens.Sheriff Boone Miller, all around smexy man with a wounded soul. Boone has spent the past few years grieving for his deceased wife. Letting his sister care for his small sons and doing everything he can to just get by. While he has friends who support him and a commun [...]

    10. Linda Lael Miller is amazing at writing cowboy series to perfection. She never fails at making my heart skip a beat with her perfect mix of chemistry and drama. Not too mention drool worthy cowboys that make you want to visit a ranch somewhere in the south. Reading as many authors as I do it feels like coming home when I pick up one of her books. There isn't one I haven't read or own. However, this story felt kind of rushed, not something I am used to when it comes to her books and the ending le [...]

    11. Reviewer: JenSource: NetgalleyJen's review was first posted at Romancing the Book's blog. I've been a longtime fan of Linda Lael Miller and this story didn't disappoint. It's the third in her series based in Parable, Montana, but it stands well on it's own. Like most series, it would be helpful to have read the prior books for a little back ground of the supporting characters. But there is no overarcing theme to where the reader would be lost if they were making their first visit to Parable with [...]

    12. KcLu's review posted on Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews4.75 StarsBig Sky River is book three in the Big Sky series by Linda Leal Miller, and I have to say it is my favorite so far! I have been waiting for Boone’s story since pretty much the first book, and he lived up to all my hopes and more.Sherriff Boone Taylor has been just really trying to make it through the day. His two boys have been living with his sister since the death of his wife Corrie, and he has been struggling with the advice of [...]

    13. Stoic widower (cowboy sheriff) and divorced stepmom (urban girl turned chicken farmer) discover true love, instant family (two boys! twin girls!), and allegedly mind-blowing sex, with the help of masculine joshing from his friends, and laughs & tears wisdom from hers. Surely none of that is a spoiler, which is kind of the point of the genre. I don't read romance often, but when I do, (a) I find myself feeling and acting with a little more compassion than usual, fueled by a renewed hope for h [...]

    14. It all started with a widower, a busted knee and a chicken rancher.Sheriff Boone is a good man with some serious heartache. His wife died young and left him with two child that his sister is raising for him. He has not been able to step out of is depression and care for them himself since see died. He can barely take basic care of himself. He has lived a lonely life not looking for anything more than just getting by. Things change fast when his sister's husband get's hurt and he has to take his [...]

    15. Linda Lael Miller is my go to author for stories that sound like they could happen in my town. There is just something about the way she writes her books that just captivates me and holds me until the very last page. Now the only flaw in this book is that Boone is a widower. I do find that to be an issue and lately I seem to see this theme in the books I have been reading. I am not saying that I don’t feel for the person that loses a spouse because I do. What I don’t like is when the widow/w [...]

    16. Too bad Parable, Montana doesn't exist as I would surely move there if it did. I've been close to the big city all my life and long to move to a much smaller town and Parable sounds like a wonderful place to live. Tara Kendall has her two step daughters for the summer and Boone Taylor finally has his two sons back living wit him. It's kinda like the Brady Bunch but more romantic. I enjoyed seeing these adversaries put down their barbed tongues and see each other in a more favorable light. It was [...]

    17. Enjoyed the book and the story, but left wanting more. The ending was rather abrupt and kind of a letdown. There was little to no interaction between the hero and heroine and almost too much time spent on the four kids (two for him and two for her). It was all kind of convoluted and rushed. Most of the book was spent on them individually and then all of a sudden, the last 2-3 chapters were them together. It wasn't her best and not a great entry into this series. I was really looking forward to t [...]

    18. 3.5 Stars!I've been waiting on Boone's story awhile but I feel Big Sky River just flew by. I really wish the romance was more fleshed out and the story was longer. They loved each other when they only spoke a couple of times. How? Don't ask me. The epilogue should have at least been set further in the future to offset their instant love.

    19. Big Sky River is the third Swoon-Worthy Cowboy novel set in Parable, Montana by Linda Lael Miller. The first book in the series, Big Sky Country, I really enjoyed but the follow up novel Big Sky Mountain was very disappointing and unfortunately this novel was too. It's left me thinking maybe the first book was a fluke as I'm realising Miller's writing just isn't for me. As inferred in book two, the hero and heroine in book three is Sheriff Boone Taylor and his attractive city turned country gal [...]

    20. I am in love with the townsfolk of Parable Montana. Big Sky River is book three in Linda Lael Miller’s Swoon-Worthy Cowboy series and yea-ha it was good to return. Each can be read as a standalone, but if you are like me and want to know all of the side characters and their stories go for book one first. This book focuses on Sheriff Boone Taylor and his city-born neighbor Tara Kendall. Since the first novel Big Sky Country these two have butted heads and it was lovely reading their story. As a [...]

    21. Tara Kendall left her big city life in New York to come to Parable, Montana and start over after her divorce. The hardest part of the divorce wasn’t losing her selfish ex-husband, but his twin daughters that she practically raised. Now living as a chicken farmer in the country, her ex-husband sends the twins to stay with her for a bit. Sherriff Boone Taylor was raised in Parable. He met and married his high school sweetheart, had two boys and then lost her to Cancer way too soon. He never real [...]

    22. O xerife Boone Taylor já havia chamado a minha atenção desde o primeiro volume da série Parable, Montana, onde ele apareceu como assistente do xerife e aos poucos fomos tendo informações a respeito dele. Como por exemplo, o fato de ser amigo igualmente do Slade e do Hutch, os dois irmãos brigões e cabeças duras, e de ser viúvo e ter dois filhinhos pequenos de cinco e sete anos, que moram com a irmã em outra cidade.Boone e Tara se conheceram desde o primeiro livro, onde ela comprou a g [...]

    23. Very good book. The back cover copy got some things a bit wrong. At the beginning of the book, Boone had no dogs and acquired one during the story. I loved the way he did get the dog and how much he came to mean to the whole family. Tara does everything she can to avoid even talking to Boone much less ask him for help. That being said, I really enjoyed the book. Tara is living her dream raising her chickens in Parable. She has friends and a community she loves. She's not real fond of her neighbo [...]

    24. Boone Taylor, the sheriff of Parable County, is still mourning his wife who died a few years ago and still hasn't brought his two young boys home. Even though he's moved on with his life, he's still stuck in time with his property in decay and his sons still living with his sisters in another town. Meanwhile, his prickly neighbor, Tara Kendall who has been very critical of how he's not maintained his property, is reinventing herself after moving to Parable from New York. Her painful marriage beh [...]

    25. You will find this review and more at Forever Book Lover.I didn't know until I received the ARC that this was part of a series. I have not read the first two book, in my opinion this is a stand alone book, however I fell in love with the secondary characters and the town of Parable, Montana that I have already purchased the first two books- Big Sky Country and Big Sky Mountain. I believe the two main characters, Boone and Tara are mentioned in the first book and sets the stage for their indiffer [...]

    26. Big Sky River is the third installment of the Swoon-Worthy Cowboys series by Linda Lael Miller. Although, this is not my favorite book of the series it was very good and well worth the read.There is no secret that Sheriff Boone Taylor and Tara Kendall butt heads every time they are within arms reach of each other. They just rub each other the wrong way. She sees him as the annoying neighbor who lives in a run down trailer ruining her beautiful view. He sees her as the prissy city girl playing co [...]

    27. This is book three of the Parable Montana Big Sky series. I have read the first two and this latest one is just as good as the others. In this story we learn more about Boone Taylor and his boys as he brings them home after his brother in law has an accident. Tara's stepdaughters come to stay with her for a few weeks and is surprised with her ex-husband calls to tell her they are coming. She knew why of course a new girlfriend but none the less she was happy to have Erin and Elle come to see her [...]

    28. Big Sky 3/5Rio do Céu AbertoLinda Lael MillerH.R. Romance 792013No livro do Hutch e Kendra achei que o Boone era o maior idiota e covarde que apareceu nos romances que já li.Naquele momento até tentei compreender que ele perdeu a mulher amada, que havia sofrido horrores devido a doença terminal da esposa. Mas mandar os filhos pequenos morar com a irmã, o o fim pra mim. E pior achar que estava que estava certo, totalmente com a razão.E mesmo quando as crianças imploraram para ficar, ele as [...]

    29. Boone and Tara live across from each other in the small town of Parable, MT. But they aren't really neighborly, they can barely stand to be civil to each other. Tara moved to Parable from New York City a couple years ago to run a chicken ranch and slow down her life. Boone is a widower with two young sons he's trying to figure out to parent, and an attitude that needs some adjusting. He's also the county sheriff. When Tara's step daughters come for a visit, these to find themselves running into [...]

    30. I did not think much of the hero, life had sent him some tough challenges that he did not quite rise to meet in the best way. The heroine was fairly innocuous but experienced no character growth in the story.I don’t think I’m spoiling anything if I get more exact he had two young sons. After the death of his wife, he sent them to live with his sister for what was supposed to be a short while, which had extended to years. Now that they are back in his home, he was doing the best that he can b [...]
