Sheriff Boone Taylor has his job, friends, a run-down but decent ranch, two faithful dogs, and a good horse. He doesn’t want romance—the widowed Montanan has loved and lost enough for a lifetime. But when a city woman buys the spread next door, Boone’s peace and quiet are in serious jeopardy.

With a marriage and a career painfully behind her, Tara Kendall is determined to start over in Parable. Reinventing herself and living a girlhood dream is worth the hard work. Sure, she might need help from her handsome, wary neighbor. But life along Big Sky River is full of surprises … like falling for a cowboy-lawman who just might start to believe in second chances.

    " Western romance author Linda Lael Miller takes us back to Parable, Montana with "Big Sky River", the third book in her charming and touching "Big Sky Series". Sheriff Boone Taylor keeps himself busy with work, fishing, and generally enjoying the simple things in life. He avoids tackling the big emotional issues which are following him everywhere he goes--he's learned to compartmentalize and keep moving. The death of his beloved wife Corrie three years earlier to breast cancer pretty much pulled the plug on his ability to cope with life head on. Unable to handle his grief and care for his two small sons, he left the boys in care of his sister Molly and her husband, Bob. He only meant for it to be a temporary arrangement, but time kept moving forward while his heart stayed behind with his sorrow. When Molly's husband is injured, and she will have to care for him and their own children, Boone knows it's time to bring his boys home. It's not much of a home, it's a dilapidated old double-wide, but somehow, it will have to do. Tara Kendall is a big-city girl turned chicken farmer, trying her best to live out her dreams in Parable. She loves her ranch, even if her handsome neighbor, Boone Taylor, lives in a run-down eyesore. She tries not to notice how easy-on-the eyes Boone is himself, especially since they manage to engage in verbal combat each time they have a conversation. Tara sure doesn't miss her wretched ex-husband, James, but she dearly misses his two daughters, whom she loves as though she had given birth to them herself. When James generously offers to let the girls stay with her while he pursues his latest affair, Tara is overjoyed. Life with children of any age is never really predictable, but it's always predicament-prone, and both Boone and Tara each have their hands full trying to manage their own reunited families. Maybe a little give & take between neighbors is just the answer to make life easier. Or will hearts become entagled as lives become intwined? Would that be such a bad thing? Boone must let go of his grief, and Tara must learn to trust again. Sometimes, taking a second chance at happiness captures a love twice as sweet. Review Copy Gratis Amazon Vine "

    " Until the abrupt ending, it was very enjoyable. Tara's ex was the least believable character I have seen in a long time. "

    " She is my favorite author for a reason that reason is I love her, she can not write a bad book . She is flawless. Her writing is like fresh air. It is so vivid & I love all her characters like family. Her Big Sky books are some of my favorites. Although my favorite book is still Holt's book. "

    " My favorite in the series so far! The kids stole my heart in this one, especially those sweet boys. Looking forward to Casey and Walker's story...should be neat since they seem to have some strange backstory. "

    " Quick and easy ...felt I should have read first 2 books to figure out other character connections. Probably won't read them unless they are freebies too. "

    " Arrr if only Boone and Tara had spent more time together, this would have been a 5 stars for sure. But as it is, no more than 3. I enjoyed reading about both Tara's and Boone's personal issues but I felt cheated on the romance. Maybe the book should have been longer. "
