Miller is one of my favorite authors having read most of her other books. While an enjoyable read this book didn’t quite draw me in and keep me engrossed as her McKettrick, Stone Creek or Montana Creed series have. Part of it could have been the secrets that Kendra was keeping that were never divulged or the lack of family ties and history that the characters had. But like her other books Big Sky Country is set in a small town in the West with a few cowboys/ranchers thrown in. The character development was slow at times. Joslyn and Slade had chemistry that they tried to fight throughout the story but eventually they gave in to it and the sparks did fly. The romance was slow to materialize and it seemed unrealistic that in such a small town that they could avoid each other as long as they did once their romance ignited. It was fun to watch the give and take between Hutch and Slade and to see the positive turn their relationship took by the end of the story. Shea was a nice addition to the storyline and you could feel her vulnerability shine through but most of the time she was a typical teen who wanted to be a part of things and be loved and often spoke without thinking. The descriptions of the Montana scenery was breathtaking in parts and made you feel that you were there. I look forward to reading the other books in the series and getting deeper and more involved in the lives of those that live in Parable.

Favorite Quote: …and if she hadn’t known it earlier when he kissed her, she knew for sure now. Slade Barlow was absolutely, definitely, inevitably going to make love to her.
And she was not only going to let him, she was going to respond with everything she had.
There was a strange, jangly kind of peace in this dazed clarity, along with a helpless sensation that frightened her a little…
