In the very beginning, the main character's love interest hears a shot and goes running to find the main character butchering a bear she just shot. Apparently, she shot it because it was attacking her. First of all, y...more
I loved the setting. I have always wanted to go to Montana and stay on a ranch but I figure I would be a mix of Tess and Lily once I'm there. Anyway, beautiful, gorgeous setting.
And the three sisters! Awesome characterisation and you fall in love with all three...more
O leque de personagens desta obra é fantástico e desenrolam-se três histórias consistentes em simultâneo. Apesar de Willa ser a protagonista, admito que a irmã Tess foi aquela que mais me cativou com o seu sentido d...more
It wasn't the best, but. . .nice and decent.
Let's see. . .This book is a simple mathematical computation.

Okay, about 700 pages later, I'm finished. And I have mixed feelings about this book. Good things: Montana (I love the scenery in the film Horse Whisperer and for some reason the book reminded me of the film), Adam and Nate, I loved reading about them (especially when Nate tells Tess that he- the cowboy from Montana- graduated from Yale or the first sex scene with Nate and Te...more
I enjoyed the story, especially each sister's own self discovery. It wasn't just through the men that entered the picture but what they were able to learn from each other and redefine family. Roberts has also created extremely likable male char...more
The narrator Erika Leigh was good, but I question her interpretation of Willa. Willa is a tough rancher in charge of a large spread. The narrator used a soft southern-type female voice. It was a nice voice for a main character, but I wouldn’t have picked it for Willa. In one place the author wrote “Well?” Willa demanded. But the narrator said “Well” in a soft tone, not a demanding tone.
Californian screen writer Tess is mad, fleeing abused wife Lily is grateful but scared, and rancher Willa is furious. And not only do they have to adjust to each other and their changed li...more
I thought I would be frustrated with a book that, from the synopsis, describes a book with three love interests/couples. The book is less than 450 pages, how in the world could NR manage to have three couple story lines, plus all the other details and scenes with other characters? I was definitely wo...more
Neste livro conhecemos 3 irmãs, que após a morte do pai, são ‘obrigadas’ a viver num rancho no Montana durante um ano para herdar a fortuna da família. Willa é a mais nova, e a que sempre viveu com o pai, no entanto isso trouxe-l...more
Three sisters, one ranch. Jack Mercy has died, and left the ranch to the three sisters, with the caveat that they all have to live on the ranch in the same house for a year or else the will's forfeit and they only get $100 each. This is more tricky than not, because Wilma has grown up on the ranch while Lily and Tess are strangers...more
Jack Mercy - a gruff mean old SOB - has died and leaves to his three daughters (by three different wives) a third of the ranch. There is one minor hitch - they must live on the ranch together for a year.
Willa is devastated as she has lived with her father and worked alongside him. The ranch means everything to her as does her father's approval. The salt to her wounds is that Ben McKinnon (fellow ranch owner) and Nate Torrence (lawyer and rancher) are to supervise the running of the ranch...more
Apesar de a capa ser a minha menos preferida (visto que todas são preferidas!) e a sinopse não me ter chamado minimamente a atenção (foi a primeira vez), como andava numa fase de ler e ver coisas de cowboys decidi ler este entre os outros todos que cá tenho.
Em relação ao Montana Sky, sendo o título português Os Céus de Montana, ainda estou indecisa em relação à...more
Nem depois de morto o calhorda do Jack Mercy deixa as pessoas em paz e sossego! Deixando o seu estimado rancho às três filhas, cada uma de mãe diferente e que nunca tiveram a oportunidade de se conhecer antes do funeral do pai, Jack obriga-as a (con)viver todas durante um ano no rancho e apenas findo esse período de tempo poderão ter acesso à herança.
Filhas de mulheres muito diferentes e criadas em ambientes diferentes, estas três irmãso não têm na...more
Three half-sisters who have never met are forced to live together on a Montana ranch in order to inherit it from the uncaring father who'd never shown any love. Of course there are three incredibly handsome and wonderful men in the picture.
And there's a crazy afoot, killing and carving up first animals and then people with his knife. Some pretty good suspense there.
What makes this, to me, not one of NR's best, is that she ha...more

But the women are shocked to learn that before any of them can inherit, they must live together on the ranch for one year. They are sisters—and strangers. Now they face a challenge: to put their bitterness aside and live like family. To protect each other from danger—and unite agai...more

Let's be honest: Nora Roberts isn't the best writer but she sure knows how to spin a guilty pleasure read. She changes POV so much its dizzying and her stories are comfortably predictable but I somehow like her anyway.
Montana Skies tells the tale of three estranged sisters and their adjustment to life after the reading of their father's will. He's a...more
My favorite sister was Willa, because she reminded me of myself the most and because she was the main character. But I pretty much hated her angry stubbornness. I don't mind that she was stubborn, I mind how she did it. I hate bitching women and she was exactly that. I can't seem to find the clever stubbornness in female protagonists. These just bitch until someone looses their temper with them.
Tess was good, but I didn't like...more
