n 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 community that believes in him, he remains in an eternal funk. Until the sexy chicken rancher (yes it really is a chicken ranch) next door starts to change his life.

After a painful divorce that left her devastated Tara Kendall, leaves New York and purchases a ranch in Parable MT.. A chic chicken rancher to be sure. Bruised and Battered from the endless idiocies of her ex and grieving herself because she had no choice but to give up her step-daughters that she had all but raised from toddlership.. she has found her place, some wonderful friends and a great life.. well except for that redneck Sheriff Boone who lives just across the river in the eyesore of a trailer..

When Boone's brother in law suffers and accident and his sister can no longer care for the boys.. and Tara's megomaniac ex husband decides to ship his daughters off to Tara for the summer, life gets really interesting. Boone and Tara find that they have more in common than they think. And one day magic happens..

This was not a earthshattering, heartpounding, bodice ripping romance.. not thunderstorms.. rather a gentle rain that soaks into the reader leaving them smiling and wanting more. Boone and Tara are endearing, they are human and they make human mistakes.. as well as enjoy human triumphs.

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 behind her, she's making the best of her new life in spite of her stubborn but handsome neighbor.

This series just gets better with each book. I knew Boone's book would be more complicated given his personal circumstances and my instincts were on target. His friends had gently urged him in the past to bring his sons back home but he was reluctant to disrupt their lives. It took a crisis in his sister's life to get him to take action. Boone's initial struggles were so realistic, facing those issues most single parents encounter with the added complication of them not really knowing him that well and the shock of a different standard of living.

When Tara's twin stepdaughters, who she raised from toddlers and adores, come to visit, it gives her and Boone opportunities to see each other differently. Their romance was heartwarming as it developed around their families and friends. I'm a sucker for kids in these stories as they tend to bring out the best in the adults as it did here. Friends from the previous books in the series also play a role and we get nice updates on their lives. The only criticism I have is that the ending felt a little rushed, satisfying, but culminating a bit faster than I thought it should have.

I was entranced with this true love story!!! We've seen parts of Boone in the previous books, I was so glad to read his and Tara's story now. I loved seeing their relationship develop, they are two people ready for each other...mature, none of the silliness of some romance stories, they were true to themselves and didn't hide who they were. Althoug I was sad to reach the end of the book, it left me feeling so fulfilled! I highly recommend this. Can't wait for the next one!

More than a love story, Big Sky River is an incredibly heartwarming story of healing from a devastating loss and finding love where it is least expected. This third installment in Linda Lael Miller's delightfully charming Parable series brings the long awaited romance of Sheriff Boone Taylor and his city slicker neighbor Tara Kendall.

Boone Taylor stole my heart as soon as we were introduced to the heartbroken lawman in Big Sky Country. Boone has been stuck in an endless cycle of grief since his wife's death a few years earlier. While he goes through the motions, he cannot quite seem to move on despite the encouragement of his longtime friends Hutch Carmody and Slade Barlow. His sister is raising his young sons, Griffin and Fletcher and while they come for the occasional visit with him, Boone is not ready to be a full time dad. But when Boone's brother-in-law suffers an accident and his sister has her hands full with her own family, it is time for Griffin and Fletcher to move home with their dad.

In the wake of her painful divorce, Tara Kendall leaves New York and purchases the ranch next door to Boone. Tara and Boone have butted heads a time or two over his dilapidated and run down property, but for the most part, they live a peaceful co-existence. Tara has settled into her life as chicken farmer and she has formed a tight friendship with Kendra Carmody, Joslyn Barlow and newcomer Casey Elder. While she is definitely over her ex, Tara still feels the loss of her stepdaughters Elle and Erin. When her ex-husband proposes she take the girls for the summer, she jumps at the chance to renew her relationship with the daughters of her heart and welcomes them with open arms.
