The "First Lady of the West," #1 New York Times bestselling author Linda Lael Miller, brings you to Parable, Montana-where love awaits.

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 falling for a cowboy-lawman who just might start to believe in second chances. 
My Thoughts:
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 indifference to one another.

Boone is the Sheriff in Parable, his two young sons have been being raised by his sister after the death of his wife to cancer. But all that is about to change, it seems his sister's husband had an accident and she needs to concentrate on his recovery, so the boys are coming back home to Boone.  

Tara is a city slicker relocated from the Big Apple trying to run a farm.. Everything is perfect except the  run down eye sore of a trailer that belongs to her neighbor- Sheriff Boone. There are many laugh out loud scenes and well as some kleenex moments..

In a twist of fate, it seems both Boone and Tara are being "parents" again. Tara with her two twin step- daughters and Boone with his young sons. Little by little Boone learns to open up his heart again and is willing to risk it all in the name of love. You dont want to miss the antics of the children, this is a heartwarming tale sure to melt your heart.

I have never read Linda's books before, but I once again have added her to my must read list. How can anyone go wrong with a brawny sexy cowboy, unless of course it is a Highlander. LOL
I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review...
