Love Linda Lael Miller's books they're cut and fun and not so perfectly predictable. I personally enjoy her series books because you learn to love the characters before their time in the spotlight. You get to learn and love each character as they come into focus for each book.

Big Sky Summer is another delightfully sweet installment in Linda Lael Miller's Parable series. I have been eagerly awaiting Casey's story and it was well worth the wait!

Casey Elder's long ago decision to keep the identity of her children's father a secret comes back to haunt her when Walker Parrish wants to take more of an active role in his kids' lives. Both Casey and Walker have come to regret their agreement to relegate him to the role of "family friend". While son Shane is thrilled to learn Walker is his father, daughter Clare is angry and resentful at being lied to over the years. In an effort to minimize publicity and make the transition easier on Shane and Clare, Casey and Walker agree to a marriage of convenience.

Youth and immaturity played a role in Casey and Walker's original decision to lie about Shane and Clare's paternity. Was Casey selfish to put her career first? Absolutely. But she did a great job keeping Clare and Shane's lives as normal as possible and when she realized it was time to give them a more stable life, she stopped touring and moved to Parable to be near Walker. With a little introspection, Walker comes to the realization that he could have been more proactive about the situation with Casey and the kids. While he may have taken the easy way out not fighting for custody or visitation, Walker is actively involved in their lives.

Casey's marriage to Walker becomes a turning point for her. She finally works through her unresolved issues from childhood. Casey also goes through a bit of an identity crisis as she tries to decide what direction her career is going to take next.

The plot of Big Sky Summer is a little far-fetched, but I could easily put aside my skepticism and enjoy the overall story. Linda Lael Miller has an uncanny ability to create sympathetic, likable characters that I become emotionally invested in and genuinely care how they are going to overcome their problems.

Big Sky Summer is another wonderful addition to the Parable series and old and new fans will enjoy this heartwarming romance.

I received a complimentary copy for review.

I really liked this one a lot. It's probably one of my favorites of the series so far. Great main characters and with such an interesting history. Not your usual run of the mill history either. Plenty of secrets that only one or two people know about. And they sure have kept those two secrets really clamped down for so many years. it wasn't all done the way that Walker would have liked but things are about to hit the fan.

Shane and Clare add a lot to the story as Casey's kids who will soon have a lot more to deal with than just be celebs kids.

The emotions run high and are well done. As Walker yearns for Casey and has quietly stood by and just watched things happen over the years. That is not his normal style, but it was the best he could do until now. It seemed like Casey held all the cards until that shifted.

Casey was wildly attracted to Walker and always had been but she was also running scared about that too. She was a mighty talent in one tiny, wild, red-haired body and she had worked hard over the years.
It was great to re-connect with people from the previous books and I still get a kick out of Opal.
This series kind of reminds me of some of Susan Mallery's books in the Fool's Gold Series. And those I really enjoyed. These books in the Parable Series are with a western flair and even deeper when it comes to telling the stories. There is plenty of drama to go with the action.
Ah, and don't forget the H.E.A.'s.

I really like this series and like it a lot. It centers around a few men and women in the town of Parable, Montana who individually landed here through one circumstance or another. Each has had issues from their past resurface to create obstacles for romance in the present. There is one constant, however...some of the most delectable cowboys west of the Mississippi River.

The Set Up
In this fourth book, Casey Elders, a red-haired, feisty Country & Western singer recently bought a home in Parable. The plan was to give her children, 14-year old Clare and 13-year old Shane, a place to call home after being on the road touring all their lives. She chose this city because it's where Walker Parrish's ranch is located. He's their father but no one knows that, including her children, and Walker is fed up agreeing to keep a secret he never wanted a part of.

The Issues
How do you explain to your children that the family friend they've adored is really their father? Especially since having a father and a family has always been their dream. Walker and Casey have a turbulent history but the weight is on Casey for creating the obstacles in their romance and the lie.

What Worked
Casey and Walker's relationship was complex, steamy (never had issues between the sheets) and uneasy. She was all about maintaining her independence and Walker was such the confident cowboy he reduced her to a puddle with just a smile. Their kids were pretty interesting, too, and their differing reactions to the news complicated the story even more. The downside of celebrity is also presented, shining a light on issues that never occurred to me and the impact on their daily lives. The couples from the earlier stories appear here with updates on their situations and, although they really don't have substantive roles to speak of, it added to the enjoyment.

What Didn't Work Quite So Well
Casey frustrated me quite a bit. While her rationale for hiding the children's paternity was logical, it didn't fit the man Walker was defined to be and she was stubborn to a fault. And, his passivity was annoying at times and seemed out of character.

Bottom Line
Loved the story, Casey and Walker as a couple and parents, their children and the conflicts. Everyone involved paid a price for the decisions Casey made and no one gets off easy. When they come together as a family, it's messy, heartwarming and romantic. The bonds between the friends make this series special, along with the Western scene and culture as a foundation. Loving it. I'm ready for Brylee!

I would give this 2 stars because of Casey's character. But that is not really fair to the book since disliking the character is a me problem.

Ok so I was looking forward to Walker and Casey's story to find out exactly what was what with these two. But I am barely into it, and I already am starting to dislike Casey. I knew from book 2 that her two kids were Walker's and that the kids didn't know it. But to hear now, from Walker's POV, that he wishes he could claim them and that it was Casey's idea that they not know, is a bit annoying. Why not? Is Walker good enough to have 2 kids with but not good enough to claim. As her baby daddy? And then Casey's POV is that she is jealous that Tara has a husband who loves her and a father to her children and future children? Ummm, you have a baby daddy you are denying. Who do you want to be the daddy to your kids? Someone else? And then what? He gets to play daddy and Walker is still on the outskirts looking in? I know this story will end with a HEA, but I may seriously not like Casey by the time that happens.

The following are my notes during the time I listened. Some contain spoilers:

Yep, I'm gonna dislike Casey. What happens when her kids find out she's been hiding the fact that Walker is their dad and not some family friend/sudo uncle?

Just when I think she might actually not be so bad, she gets mad at Walker's reaction to her suggestion that another baby may not be a bad thing.

Casey is so annoying with blaming Walker for her own decisions. He'd be smart to leave her. Glad he knows enough to just ignore her mostly.

Casey is very selfish.

If I could smack Casey, I would have a thousand times!

I am not sure if I will make it to the end of this book. I have 2.5 hours left on this audiobook and not sure I can handle Casey anymore. She is fairly annoying and contradictory. Too much for me to deal with. It's like she starts fights on purpose and makes decisions and then gets mad at Walker for what she decides! She claims they only get along in bed and not out, but she is the one always arguing. Not Walker. How does he stand her?

The last couple of chapters were good but I kept waiting for Casey to cause issues so I was a bit gun shy til the end.

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

I really liked this novel. At first I was a little confused with how Casey could have kept her children away from their father Wyatt. As I continued reading I understood more why she did what she did but I never fully liked her as the heroine. I did, however, really like Wyatt. He was a man of integrity and knew what he wanted. He went after what he wanted and didn’t stop till he got Casey.

I found Casey to be very selfish and kind of immature. Everyone kept saying that she was full of spunk and very independent but I found her to be spineless. A good mother does not withhold the father’s identity from their kids unless the father is a mass murderer or a rapist. Wyatt is not a criminal. She had no reason to keep his identity from the kids.

Even though Casey was not a well loved character I could see why Wyatt loved her. He never stopped loving her. He did everything in his power to make Casey believe in him and believe in their family. I really liked how Wyatt did not listen to what others thought. He had a goal and he went after it. Wyatt made Casey more likable to me. He made her more human and down to earth.

I now want to go back and read the first three books in the series. I’ve always love Linda Lael Miller’s novels. They are always well written and thoughtful. I’m really looking forward to reading Wyatt’s sister’s story. I really liked her character in this book.

I liked reading this contemporary western romance, and found much of it entertaining. Both Walker and Casey are well-drawn, 3D characters whose reactions to events, challenges, and each other endeared them to me. As a huge fan of novels with a Second Chances theme, I enjoyed watching Walker and Casey reconnect, make decisions, and end up (sometimes against their will) giving each other that valuable second chance. After all, love like this doesn't come along every day.

While the story constantly unfolded, it had a sense of unhurried pacing, like a slow-moving river meandering through lowlands. This well could have been intentional, as a likeness of summertime and the country life. It gave the novel a sense of place and setting that both enriched the story *and* drove me a little batty. I found myself thinking, often throughout the book, that it simply moved too slowly for my tastes. The sense of meandering, weaving back and forth, is evident throughout the story as many bits of their lives (before story begins) are revisited again and again--sometimes something new is revealed (added to what we already know) and sometimes it's just a repeat. The book could've contained the same story and been many, many pages shorter.

This part of the Parable, Montana series didn't feel quite as flowing as the previous ones. I still very much enjoyed Casey and Walker's story, but parts were a bit too much or just not quite enough. Casey is a famous singer and she has settled down in Parable to enjoy life and take it easy after many, many years on tour. The thing is, she has just happened to settle down in the same small town that the father of her two teenage children lives in (and she knows it). To make it more complicated, Walker knows he's the father, has tried to be the loving "uncle" to them as they grew up, but the kids have no idea that he is their father. This is were the story started to get a little questionable. Walker really isn't the type to let someone convince him his kids were better off not knowing he was their father.

On the other hand, the reaction of both kids was perfect. It was an incredibly well written scene and the ones that followed as they came to grips with the fact they had been lied to, were just as good. Both kids were great and I loved them.

Have you noticed anything I've said concerning a romance yet? No? Well, this was the big downfall. The romance didn't quite seem to be the primary focus in this one. It was more about the kids - and I loved their story, but I wish I had seen more of Casey and Walker falling in love with each other all over again.

4 STARS

Big Sky Summer (Swoon-Worthy Cowboys #4)

I have enjoyed this series. I have read all four so far. It starts with a wedding of Sheriff Boone Taylor and Tara Kendall. We see a lot of the same characters from previous books. I like catching up with old friends seeing what the characters have been doing since the last book.

Walker Parrish was attending the wedding as guest and friend of Boone. His sister does not come to weddings since she was left by the alter when Hutch
called off the wedding to her in this church two years ago. Now he is one of the best man for Boone the other best man is Slade.

Casey Elder is singing at the wedding. She is a famous singer that had moved to town a few years ago. She wants her two teenagers going to school for the first time. Casey has done a good job at keeping the secret of who the father of her two children is. Hardly anyone knows. In fact she hid the news to the father by lying to him that it was some other guy till it happened a second time.

Walker when he found out both children were his he wanted to get married and bring them back home to his ranch. Casey wanted to keep singing. She agreed to let Walker be close to her kids as a family friend. He has always wanted more. He loves his kids.

Casey's daughter Clare 14 has given up on wishes. She tells her mom she has wished since she was little for a dad. Casey realizes that she made a mistake and needs to tell her children that Walker is their father. She is afraid that her kids will hate her for telling them lies for years about their father.

Casey and Walker met at the rodeos around the country when she was just starting out singing and Walker was being in the rodeos. They were great in bed but out they wanted different things. In fact when Casey came over to Walker's ranch to tell him that he was right they fell into the same patterns sleeping together and then fighting.

They have a lot of issues they need to work out as a family. It is not easy for the kids to realize that their mom lied to them. Walker did to. Walker did not even tell his sister about them. She thought she was a honoree Aunt to them not a real aunt.

Does have some love scenes in it, has horses and rodeos, ranching and small town helping those in need. In other words it is a romance book written by Linda Lael Miller.

I was given this ebook to read and asked to give it honest review by Netgalley.

Romance novels usually require that the reader suspend some disbelief, but unfortunately, for me this one was totally unbelievable.

The heroine, Casey, is a nasty little piece of work who keeps her two children from their father all their lives - they are now in their teens - and their father, Walker - who is supposed to be a strong, macho type, lets her get away with it. Subsequently, the two of the lie their heads off for years and only "fess up" because the media might get hold of the information.

The reason is pathetic - she was worried that Walker would want her to be a traditional wife when she wants her career, so for this - and no talking to him about it - she lies and lies...and lies with no real shame about it. All she is worried about is what the media will say and that the kids might not speak to her...

The dialogue is flat, and the characters are not fleshed out. No spoilers, but I feel the author could have done better.

My review:

When I got offered reviewing Big Sky Summer by Linda Lael Miller I did not know what to expect, because I was not familiar with her books at that time. I was glad that I took the opportunity, because I fell in love with the settings and the people of Parable, Montana. Big Summer Sky was well written romance with some real issues real people have to deal with.

Plot:

Meet Walker, who is a ranch owner and rodeo rider, meet his love at the friend's wedding. Casey was his sweetheart until the day she broke his heart and left Parable, Montana. Now she is back in town with her two kids. Walker has been close to her kids and family, but he has no idea, that Casey is hiding something very important from him.

Casey is a celebrity singer who has been trying to hide the father of her kids from the public eye and from her kids. Until the day Walker finds out that he is the dad of these two wonderful kids. When Casey needs to face the truth and telling her kids that Walker is their father, her kids feel betrayed. They have always loved Walker, even when they did not know the fact who he really is.

Characters:

I did like Casey even though I did not understand all her decisions. In the beginning of the book I did not understand why Casey was so afraid of keeping the truth from her kids, especially when she knew how much Walker loved her and the children. Then I realized, that giving up the love of your life for the music, must have been very difficult. She was afraid of Walker not letting her pursue her dreams and I can relate to that. I admire the strength what Casey had for admitting to the truth.

Walker was down to earth and easy to understand and love. I can't imagine what it means, that your kids are kept away from you like that I think he handled the truth very bravely. I loved how he supported Casey and had the guts to stand up for what he thought was right.

Besides the main characters, I think the author put a lot of love into the supportive ones. It was like meeting the long lost family. You were placed into Parable and you couldn't help yourself starting caring for people of this small place.

Generally:

Big Sky Summer takes you to a happy place. The surroundings seem beautiful and cozy, the plot is interesting and the characters lovable. I enjoyed it a lot and would recommend it to everybody who has a soft sport for a country romance!

In Big Sky Summer we read Casey and Walker's story. Casey is a famous singer, and to the world, Walker is a good friend of Casey's. So good that her children refer to him as their Uncle. When Casey decides to get out of the spotlight and live a more 'normal' life with her children, she moves to Parable, Montana, where Walker lives. Unknown to everyone except for Walker, Casey's children are not 'test tube babies'. For some reason, Casey decided they would be better off with just her than knowing who their father was. They are Walker's daughter and son though, children he's tired of letting Casey call the shots with, children he wants to acknowledge to the world as his.

For so long, the true relationship between Casey and Walker has been a tightly kept secret...but Walker is getting tired of secrets! He wants to be able to be a true father at last. Casey knows the time has come to be honest with the children, but she is scared. She has lied to them for so long about this, she's terrified of losing them when they find out her and Walker's secret. Things are even more complicated for Casey because when she's with Walker she feels things for him she doesn't want to feel.

Walker and Casey bring out the worst and the best of each other. Casey seems to have to argue with everything Walker says. When he is determined to finally be honest with the children about who he is, she has to agree that the time has come. When the truth finally is told, they will have to work together on building relationships and trust again. They will also have to deal with the media spotlight once the news becomes public, putting the children front and center in the press, something Casey did not want to happen. But she doesn't give Walker enough credit in handling things, and when she suggests an unusual solution, he jumps at the chance to be with her openly at last. Do Casey and Walker have a chance at a happily ever after together? Or will the years of untruths hurt any chance they might have? Will the children forgive them and be happy in the family they can be together?

I had a really hard time liking Casey! For years she has denied her children of knowing their father, for what comes across as very selfish reasons. She really seems to have no idea how this has affected her children until when the truth comes out, Clare, their daughter is so angry that she's been denied a family and living in one place so that Casey can have her singing career. Casey has worked hard to get where she is with no family support, so I was a bit surprised she didn't seem to see the need for the kids to know their father as their father. She pushes Walker's buttons every chance she has, she can't seem to help herself!

Finally Walker is pushing back though. Finally I say, because he is not blameless in this by any means! He allowed Casey to dictate how things would be, he didn't push back until now, no matter how much he wanted his children to know they were his. Now he is coming around and realizing the kids will be grown and on their own soon, and he wants this chance to be with them. I'm not sure I could put up with Casey pushing my buttons as much as he did, but he just seemed to assume that because she was their mother she could do what she wanted.

I loved catching up on the characters from other books in this series! Opal is still my favorite, coming to the rescue again and working her magic! It's hard to say how realistic this story line actually is...maybe stuff like that does happen, who knows!

Big Sky Summer was book #4 in this series, and I loved getting back to this. It can be read as a stand alone, but I recommend the whole series! I love Linda's writing, she pulls you in and makes you love (and hate!) the characters.

First things first.. As soon as I finish this review I am headed for Parable MT.. What is it you say? It's not real? Seriously? Who Cares??? - Seriously I want to find this fictitious town.. Cuz I really like what's in the water there!!

Linda Lael Miller continues her Parable series with a delightful story about a complicated love between The rock and The hard place.. Two people who are sure their way is the right way, with little desire to compromise.. 15 years and two children later, decisions must be made.

Casey Elder created a life for herself.. All but tossed from her family, she took on the Country Music Industry and became a star! With only a bump or two along the way.. Everyone loves Casey but no one really knows her.. and as far as the world is concerned her two children were created via test tube... Having raised them to be spectacular individuals Casey has finally settled down in the town of Parable, MT. So her children can have normal middle school and high school lives.. oh and so they can be close to the father they never knew they had.

Walker Parrish *sigh* (sorry couldn't help myself) is one of the good guys. A stand up friend, a great big brother and a supportive "uncle" to his two children. He has allowed Casey to call the shots and pretty much cut him out of their lives. But now that she is living close at hand things are changing and Walker wants to make sure his children know him!

Suddenly it's about more than just who her children's father is.. a leak to the press and sooner or later the tabloids will be descending.. So Casey, takes her heart in her hand and risks it all.. convincing Walker that they should be married (for the sake of the children of course).

Casey is kinda cute in her nervousness..and she certainly made some bad decisions but as an independent woman I can see why she made them. She had a dream and she was sure Walker would want more than a part time wife while she was making her way up the Country Music Charts.. Walker on the other hand was kind of dog in the manger.. not that he is written as a bad guy.. He honestly believes that he was forced to let go of his children, it takes his sister to point out that he could have fought for joint custody.. It was all or nothing for him, so maybe Casey had a point.. (just my thoughts)

There is tension throughout this book, these two hard heads want to love each other, shoot DO love each other but they are just afraid of loosing everything. Ms Miller does a wonderful job writing the emotions and feelings of their teenage daughter.. you know the hormonal years... This is just such a wonderful series and I find myself combing the book lists to find out when her next book in the series is due out (for the record it's Aug 27, 2013 with Big Sky Wedding).

I seriously recommend this book!! A total and complete pleasure! For those of you interested Ms Miller has a great contest going on at

Review:

I haven't read a book by Linda Lael Miller in a long while, so when I saw this on Netgalley, I grabbed it. The premise sounded interesting, and I was curious as to how everything would pan out for rancher protagonist Walker. He has two teens that don't know he's their father. Now that superstar Casey Elder has settled down in town, Walker is going to see a lot more of those kids of his, but he can't tell them that he's their dad! I had a hard time sympathizing with Casey, because she expected him to stay silent about his kids, and because she was denying them all a chance to be a family.

I loved Walker, even though he's a go with the flow kind of guy. He appreciates the simple things in life; a good horse, his land, the beauty surrounding him. He is lonely and doesn't easily make connections with others. His on again off again mess of a relationship with Casey is like a train wreck. They met on the rodeo circuit just as Casey's music career was about to take off, and after she discovers she's pregnant, she lies and tells him that the baby isn't his. She's worked long and hard to make it to the big time, and she' not about to become some rancher's wife.

After Walker gets her pregnant again (!) she has to fess up. She insists that Walker's participation in her strange little family remain a secret, and shame on him, he agrees. This is the one less than noble decision that he makes, and he spends the rest of the book regretting it with every breath he breathes. He realizes how much he is hurting both his kids and himself by obeying Casey's demands, and as he is torn up over it. He has missed out on watching his kids grow up, and he's become resentful of Casey for locking him out of so much of their childhoods. When she settles down in Parable, he begins to see just how much of their lives he has missed out on, and it doesn't make him happy.

This is the fourth book in the Swoon-Worthy Cowboys series, and other than the first confusing chapter, where we are reintroduced to previous couples in the series, I didn't have any trouble diving in to this installment. I did go back and grab the rest of the books because I enjoyed this one so much. The writing is engaging, and I enjoyed all of the characters, though it took a while to warm up to Casey. If I have to pick one aspect of the story that didn't work for me, it's that Walker is a baby-making machine, and every single time he and Casey hook up, she ended up pregnant. Even though they used protection. Somebody needs to sue the condom company for so many quality control failures!

If you are looking for a quick and surprisingly emotional read, Big Sky Summer is a perfect title to pack up in your beach bag. It even gets some extra brownie points for featuring some many dogs so prominently.

Big Sky Summer is the fourth book in the Swoon-Worthy Cowboy series and we finally get Walker and Casey's story. From the moment I stepped back into Parable, Montana I was captivated and consumed this in one sitting. While they can each be read as a standalone I think you'd miss getting to know the folks of this small Montana town.

With Casey Elder back in town, Walker cannot help but question his decisions regarding their past relationship and the two children they produced. It is complicated, and there were a lot of hurt feelings, but the kids only know him as Uncle Walker. Casey's plan was to always keep her kids paternity a secret, but she realizes it might have been a mistake just like she should have told Walker she wanted to be a rancher's wife. The tale that unfolded was sweet, filled with a little heat and kept me entertained.

I have always liked Walker; he is an honorable man, great with kids and respects the ladies. He is also a dolt and I wanted him to just take command of Casey. *wipes brow* Ok, I got that out of my system. Casey is a successful country-singer but has decided the kids are growing too fast and stops touring for awhile. She is also slowly admitting she wants Walker and always has. At times I wanted to scream, because she seems like an intelligent woman and I wanted her to realize you can have it all! Not one or the other. It was fun watching these to tango. I loved the respect they had for one another and giggled over some heated moments. Their kids reacted to the situation differently and it added to the tale. Opal was back, but her role was much smaller. Hints about townsfolk have me curious, and I am worried about one particular lady. Brylee Walker's sister was present and I am really hoping we get her story soon.

Despite my issues with the characters' behavior, I quickly became caught up in the tale. Miller brings heart to her characters. I love the sense of community this small town has and the way they all step up and look out for each other. The romance was sweet, with a few hot but relatively clean moments. The tale flows wonderfully, and had some interesting thread. Miller gets you tied up in the characters and I love that I actually talked aloud to them when they annoyed me! We know we are going to get our HEA, and I enjoyed the ride. We see lots of small town life; horses, rodeos and even get a cute animal story. Overall, this was a great escape and I look forward to the next book. Received ARC in exchange for unbiased review and originally published at caffeinated book reviewer dot com.

Big Sky Summer by Linda Lael Miller features some of my favorite things in a story, small towns, romance, and cowboys. I have had the pleasure of reading all the books in the Big Sky series and I have enjoyed each one. I always love returning to a town to catch up with some of my friends from previous books. Linda Lael Miller does a great job of giving updates on friends from past books in the series as well as telling a wonderful story about the main characters.

Walker Parrish has been spending time with Casey and their children for many years. However these teenagers don't know that Walker is their Dad.

Walker and Casey's always spark when they are together but sometimes those sparks turn into heated arguments other times they turn into babies.

Walker is a handsome cowboy who has a ranch to run and animals to take care of. Casey is a super star trying who was in need of some quite time. She and her children have moved to Parable, Montana where Walker (the children's dad lives). When the children find out that Walker is their Dad there are some touchy moments and lot for everyone to take in. I thought Linda Lael Miller did a great job of showing all the emotional issues that would be involved in a secret of this size.

I loved that Walker and Casey sizzle, they just have to figure out what their feelings are for each other. It takes awhile for them to get on the same page and get their family together but it was an fantastic story to read.

I can not wait for the next in this series, I'm not sure but I think it my be Brylee Parrish's turn to find her happily ever after.

If you like small town, western romances I think you will enjoy this one. I have yet to meet a Linda Lael Miller book that I didn't like.

Big Sky Summer
Linda Lael Miller
Harlequin HQN, May 28 2013, $7.99
ISBN: 9780373777655

Parable, Montana rancher Walker Parrish loves country and western star Casey Elder. He sired two children with her, but he reluctantly agreed she would raise them while no one would know he was their father. When Casey returns to Parable with fourteen year old Clare and thirteen year old Shane, Walker feels he made a terrible error years ago as he wants to spend time with his teen children as their dad not as a family friend.

Casey asks Walker to marry her for the sake of the children who need a father but not an abrupt shocker. He wants to tell them that he is their biological father while she fears their reactions having kept it a secret from everyone. Additionally Casey conceals her hidden agenda that she needs him too.

The latest Big Sky contemporary (see Big Sky River, Big Sky Mountain and Big Sky Country) is an enjoyable ranch romance due to the interesting screwed up relationship. Casey's original argument for hiding the identity of the father seems off base as Walker is nothing like her rationalization. Still, readers will relish this second chance at family.

I went into this book wondering who Casey's children's father was and why she was hiding it. My immediate thought was some abusive criminal, because why else would she deny them their father. When it was revealed who the father was, I was like why hide it. It was like a bad episode of Murray. With that, my fondness and little respect for Casey declined. No matter how she tried to spin it, I couldn't agree with her or her decision to keep it hidden.

Walker was a nice guy, although a bit more reserved than I'm used to from Miller. I would have never expected a man like Walker to go along with Casey's foolish plan. Although I liked Walker, he doesn't rank up there with Miller's other cowboys. He and Boone have fallen short on the swoon-worthy scale.

Another winner for Linda Lael Miller! Walker Parrish is very busy running the ranch that his father left him. However, Casey Elder has left the spotlight and is back in Parable, Montana. She and Walker have a history which include the two teenage children that Casey has told everyone she conceived in test tubes! Keeping the paternity of her son and daughter private was Casey's way of controlling the situation and not having to deal with Walker. Sparks seem to fly whenever they are together... and not always the good kind of sparks. However she is back in Parable and Casey is afraid that the kids will find out who their father is sooner or later and has decided that its best if they learn it from her.
I loved the main characters and was pleased to re-visit some of the characters from earlier books about Parable. The story line was fun. I am looking forward to the next two books in this series.

Linda Lael Miller's books are usually characterized by witty dialogue, deep friendships, and heartwarming relationships with some steamy scenes in between. In Big Sky Summer, the dialogue is barely there, as characters are almost completely in their own heads. There's way more telling than showing. The friendships are there but we don't really see any of the deeper interactions we're used to. The relationship barely progresses because the characters are too scared to talk to each other. That ploy can work in the beginning but halfway through the book if the couple can't have a real conversation, that's just boring. I've read almost all her other books and I couldn't finish this one. What a disappointment.

i love all of linda's books!!!! she never disappoints!!! this one is about walker parrish who has a ranch to run and a rodeo legacy to continue. he has no time for wrecked relationships from his past. casey elder, a big-time country music star moves back to parable, montana to raise her teenage children out of the limelight and to give them as normal an upbringing as possible. she and walter have had a couple of affairs in the past and there were consequences from these times. walter and casey still strike sparks off each other and they both try to deny it but it isn't working so well for them.

Big Sky Summer is essentially a story of second chances at love and family. I always enjoy a good second chance love story, but this one was a bit of a hard sell. And while I did enjoy the story overall, there are a couple of reasons why I didn't fall quickly into the story and become invested in the romance.

The first reason is that Casey and Walker initially fell in love fifteen years before the story began. And that's fine, as long as I have something to go on and reason to believe in that love. There wasn't much back story, just some bits of info here and there, and we don't even actually learn how they met or of what really happened until nearly the end of the story. But the present day love story was kind of sweet and charming. I always love to see a romance that leaves the woman rattled and flushing and the man flustered and hot under the collar. I enjoyed seeing the two slowly reveal their feelings for one another.

The second, and perhaps biggest obstacle was the fact that when Casey and Walker did fall in love the first time, Casey ended up pregnant. Fearing that Walker would hold her back, she lied and told him the baby wasn't his. Move ahead about a year, and Casey winds up pregnant -- again -- by Walker, and knowing that he wouldn't buy her lies again, she confesses that this and her first baby are both his kids. So...instead of telling their kids the truth, and having an honest relationship, Casey and Walker go on letting everyone believe that he's only a family friend. So now fast forward thirteen or so years, and Casey and the kids now live on the ranch next to Walker's, but the truth about their paternity is still hidden. This leads us to the big storyline of Big Sky Summer, Casey and Walker finding a way to tell their kids the truth, and becoming a family.

Okay, so I try really hard to judge a story by the writing and not by the character's bad choices. But in this case, I have a hard time believing that Walker, a solid, honest man who loves Casey and loves their kids, would allow Casey to talk him into this decision. It just doesn't quite fit with the image of this man I've been given, and makes Casey fairly unlikeable for me. I did like how she completely took responsibility for her selfish and harmful decisions. And I think the author did a really good job with the kids' frustrations and pain at the lies they'd been told.

Despite how very frustrated and puzzled I was at the characters, I did like Big Sky Summer. I really enjoyed Casey and Walker's present day relationship, and find it nice to read about grown people who are trying to find their way. I would say this story would be a good fit for those who like a down home romance.

This is book four in Linda Lael Millers Parable, Montana series. This is Casey and Walkers story. I have been waiting for this story and it did not disappoint. I have read all the books in this series and loved each one.

Walker and Casey have known each other for quite some time. Casey's children have a good relationship with Walker spending time at his ranch in the summer. He is like an uncle to them, but what they don't know is that he is their father. It might seem strange to keep this information from her children but Casey had her reasons. They are back in Parable and Walker wants a relationship with them as their father.

This is a great book. Next up Big Sky Wedding, Brylee's story.

Linda Lael Miller's Big Sky Summer was a difficult read for me. The romantic relationship between the two main characters seemed absulutely and unnecessarily torturous. It is impossible to understand why a responsible, professional woman and mother in her thirties would not believe she could be happy with the man she has loved for many years. But Casey fought happiness every step of the way and I, as the reader, never really understood why. This won't turn me away from Ms. Miller, however. I have enjoyed her works in the past and, I'm sure, will again.

It all started with a broken condom, a career and scared cowboy.

Walker one fine cowboy and rancher has alway kept the secret Casey wanted. She wanted the world to never know who her children's father was. The pain of watching them grow, and flounder without being able to be there was difficult. It is getting harder to hold his tongue, now that they are living s close. he wants to claim his children.
Casey, a singer, famous and hunted by reporters, wants things to stay as they are. She is afraid her children will hate her after they learn of her lies. She cowers in her fear, dragging the inevitable out. She runs out of time when a reporter figures out just what has been going on and spreads it across the internet. She makes a choice and charges ahead with it.

*What a ride this one was*. It was the first one of her series where I didn't like the female lead. She was selfish, career centered and cruel. Some may disagree on that she does some charitable good things here. Too me, she was terrible, she stole important life times away from the father, and the comfort of a father from her children. Why? Her career. Then her reasoning behind her action just fell flat for me. She treated Walker and the children terrible. Yes, she irked me ! I loved the book anyway.
I love this author's writing, it is always a real good ride !

This is the 4th book in the Parable Montana Series. This is the story of Casey Elder (Country Western Singer) and Walker Parrish (Rancher).

Casey and Walker finally have to deal with their well kept secret regarding Clare, 14 and Shane, 13. They have to now reveal to Clare, Shane, as well as everyone else in Parable that Walker is the father of the two teenagers, whom they have always regarded as a close friend to them. You also get to meet previous characters from Parable novels.

As always Linda Lael Miller weaves a great tale!!

Read for Review (Harlequin via Netgalley)
Overall Rating: 3.50
Story Rating: 3.00
Character Rating: 4.00

First Thought when Finished: I ADORE Linda Lael Miller's characters. They make me root for the HEA every dang time!

Story Thoughts: Just going to say it: I was not a huge fan of the base of this storyline where the kids were concerned. I don't understand the whole lying about who the father was when he clearly wanted to be in the picture. On both sides (father and mother) it pissed me off. It is hard to love a story when you just don't get why it happened in the first place.

Character Thoughts: I love the characters of the Swoon-Worthy Cowboys series. As much as I didn't understand why Walker and Casey made some of the decisions that they did, I still was rooting for them to work it out. Plus, we got to see all the couples we already know and love. I just need Bry to have a love story. That girl sure does deserve one!

Final Thoughts: While this might not be my favorite in the series it was still a pretty good read!

sarah beebe
Hard headed and stubborn just doesn't seem to work in relationships. It's therefore encouraging when people learn to put aside pride and give love a chance. This story is a prime example of being willing to admit to the variability that comes with love. While I enjoyed the story as I do all of Ms. Miller's I have to admit that the story fell short in the romance department. The characters were as always well developed and complex.

I loved this book as much as I have loved all of the other books in this series. I love series books since the characters that have become like friends come back for a visit. I never want a book to end and this one was no different. I do with that when a series ends the author would do a big epilogue and let us know how everyone is doing. That's just a wish on my part. Linda Lael Miller never fails to leave you feeling happy and deeply satisfied with a wonderful read.

A country-western singer, a modern-day cowboy, and their two children,who don't know that the cowboy is their father--until Dad insists that Mom come clean. She does and the sparks that continue to characterize their romance returns with a vengeance. Typically, the boy is thrilled with who his dad is, the girl not so much, but even she comes around when she gets into trouble and Dad is there for her.

Walker and Casey have a lot of chemistry between them. They are parents to two teenagers who don't know that Walker is their dad. This book is filled with unknown love, mistrust, and teenage hurt, confusion and pride. How they face these feelings keeps you interested and Linda Lael Miller's writing is captivating. I highly recommend this book and I look forward to reading the next book in the series about Parable, Montana.

I am a big fan of linda leal Miller. I love cowboy stories , must bring out something that I have always wished I had the opportunity to experience.

This is a great read! I love to read Millers contemporary stories. It is a continuation of the Parabe series and
It was so much fun to catch up on the other characters in the series. I remember thinking near the end of the last book that these two people needed their own story told. It was a joy to see them get their happy ending..

I really could not buy into the idea that a man like Walker, who's responsible, honest and family-oriented, would go along with Casey's nutty idea of him being a "family friend". The story improved immensely once the kids were told. In fact, it went from one star to five stars.

Walker Parrish has no time to dwell on wrecked relationships with his rodeoing and a ranch to run. But country-western music sweetheart Casey Elder is back living in Parable, Montana with her two teenage kids.

Keeping her children's paternity under wraps has always been part of Casey's plan to give them normal, uncomplicated lives. Now the best way to hold her family together seems to be to let Walker be a part of it-as her husband of convenience.

But guess who is the father of both children? It's easy to guess.

Not my favorite of Linda's books, but I always enjoy them. Thanks to Net Gallery for reading it and being able to post my honest review.
