But even with his newfound wealth and rugged good looks, Hutch finds that Kendra is frustratingly immune to his charms.

    This book was a fairly quick read from beginning to end. Lots of action and story to keep you turning the page. At times I felt the writing was rough, but nothing that distracted from understanding the story. The book had its suspense and romance, as well as the growing up. I would definitely classify this book as young adult, but had the suspense and romance and paranormal all going on.I was very intrigued with the relationship Jamison had with his grandfather. This was probably the favorite part of the book for me. I could feel that Jamison loved his grandfather and would do anything for that man. I loved the Scottish accent as well. Quite fun to read.This is the first book in a series and I think I forgot that when I started reading it, so when I got to the end, I was disappointed it didn’t end. Not that it didn’t have a good ending, it just didn’t end. Typical for a first book in a series. I definitely will be watching for the second book of this series. I would recommend this to readers who like paranormal, mystery, and suspense in their Young Adult. And even if you don’t like Young Adult, there is still enough variety to keep you interested.

    Read for Review/Blog TourOverall Rating 4.25Story Rating 4.00Character Rating 4.50First thought when finished: I really loved Hutch even though in the beginning he left a gal at the alter!What I Thought of the Story: Big Sky Mountain is the 2nd book in the series so you already have an attachment to many of the characters. I think this helped a LOT with accepting Hutch Carmody and Kendra Sheperd for exactly where they are in their lives. The story starts with Hutch leaving another woman at the alter (actually doing the right thing though his timing could have better) and Kendra returning to town with a little girl in tow. To say their path back to romance (they had a relationship a long time ago) is tough would be putting it mildly. What made the romance/story so believable to me is that they both had to grow in order for it to work!What I Thought of the Characters: I loved Hutch! He is the reason that Big Sky Mountain worked so well for me. Kendra, I liked in the first book but I will admit she got on my nerves a little in the beginning of this one. Then again her whole life had just changed so I should have been more understanding. The side characters in LLM's books usually steal the show for me. In Big Sky Mountain, it was no different. I always say to read her books for the romance but come back to her series to visit the characters. She just has a way of bringing them alive! I am really looking forward to Boone and Tara's story because I know it is going to be a doozy!Final Thought: This was better than the first book and very enjoyable!

    Review: When I received Big Sky Mountain I could not wait to trot back into the lives of Parable's cowboys -particularly Hutch, Slade, and Boone. After finishing Big Sky Country, I was left pondering the fates of some of my favorite characters, so I was ecstatic to hear that I would definitely be reading more about Kendra and Hutch's budding romance! I liked how the book began, with a surprise, (no spoilers), and how a recap of previous happenings was woven throughout the continuing story. For this reason, I would still recommend reading the books in order, but it can also be read as a stand-alone. I was glad to see the familiar landscapes and faces of Parable, Montana - as descriptive and lively as ever - a Linda Lael Miller trademark, but I could not figure out why I was not as enthralled by the characters as I had been previously. I remembered Hutch having more of a misunderstood "bad-boy" persona, full of unbridled passion; unfortunately, there was little to no trace of those traits in the second book. There were moments when I thought the old Hutch would resurface, especially during the more risque sections, but I was left wanting. Speaking of, the romance level was very shallow, just enough to move the story along, but not really building on anything. Slade and Joslyn interacted more in the last book than Kendra and Hutch did in this one; there was quite a lot of inner dialogue this go around. However, I did enjoy the slowly mending relationship between Slade and Hutch, I was happy to see them getting along and the same was true for Boone's relationships. Character wise, I still liked most of their temperaments - especially Kendra's no-nonsense attitude and down-to-earth charms - but even though they were realistic, I never truly felt invested in their lives. As always, I loved the animal aspect and the plot-line was pretty interesting - as was the subplot. I just wish that the book had contained a little more action, (romantic and otherwise), and a little less daily grind. Although I did not enjoy Big Sky Mountain as much as Big Sky Country, I cannot wait for Big Sky River to come out in January! I hope that I am lucky enough to review that installment as well! Recommended for those in the mood for a family-centered romance with a little heat.Rating: Bounty's Out (3/5)*** I received this book from the author (Meryl L. Moss Media Relations, Inc.) in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

    Posted on Romancing the Book's blogReviewed by StaceyReview Copy Provided by NetgalleyI am normally a fan of Linda Lael Miller’s books but Big Sky Mountain, in my opinion, was not a favorite. Book two in the Parable, Montana/Big Sky series, found me a little lost and the blurb did not truly represent the book. Kendra and Hutch have a past together; one that clearly neither of them are over. Their lives currently have them both in places where the last thing they need is the complications of renewing their relationship. Hutch just recently left someone at the altar and Kendra just adopted her dead ex-husband’s illegitimate daughter! Seriously! Realistically, those two stories could have made Big Sky Mountain interesting but Ms. Miller was clearly more interested in setting up plots for future books because there were so many other things going on in this book that at times Hutch and Kendra were merely background noise. There were three other stories (at least!) brewing in this book and they were a little too distracting because it made you forget your main characters. Too much stopping and starting of the stories. Linda Lael Miller is a wonderful writer. The way she tells a story makes even a story that’s hard to read easy. Kendra and Hutch deserved a full story considering this was their book.

    I was halfway through reading Big Sky Mountain when I found out that this is a second in a series. Somehow I missed that but it made no difference, Big Sky Mountain is a wonderful story and I enjoyed every bit of it!Big Sky Mountain opens with a wedding. Hutch is standing at the altar when he shocks everyone by calling off the wedding. The would-be-bride and her friends are understandable upset and start a website bashing Hutch. That night he goes to his half brother Slades’s house for dinner and runs into his lost love Kendra and her adopted daughter Madison.Kendra’s story along with her adoption of Madison is such an interesting one. Madison just touches your heart and totally steals the book. Kendra has some issues but it is see how she and Hutch finally come back together for goodNow I need to go back and read Big Sky Country the first in the Swoon-Worthy Cowboys series. I can’t wait to see what I missed!

    Big Sky Mountain by Linda lael Miller 4 STARSMadison stills the book. You just want to hug her and spoil her.In the last book that I read of Linda Lael Miller I did not care for Hutch much. First chapter still not much of a fan. After that I got to see moresides of him and I would be on his side now.Hutch calls off his wedding as the bride is coming down the isle. Though it is embrassing to call of the wedding its better before than divorce and even more hard feelings.Kendra is back in town with a four year old Madison who she adopted. Madison has been in foster care most of her life. Her father was Kendra's exhusband and he is dying and asked her to find his daughter and raise her.Kendra used to date Hutch back before she was married. When they broke up she married Jeffery and was hoping that Hutch would come after her.Madison falls for Hutch right away calling him cowboy man even asks in her prayer for him for a father.Hutch falls for Madison too. He wants Kendra still and he thinks she broke up with him. Kendra thinks it was Hutch who broke up their relationship.Thier are a few sex scenes in the book. Like the characters and can't wait to see whos story is next.I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley.07/24/2012 Pub Harlequin HarlequinMira

    2.5 Stars Big Sky Mountain – Linda Lael Miller*ARC SUPPLIED BY PUBLISHER*This was an extremely slow moving book, one with many questions left unanswered and situations left unfinished. This wasn’t even a very romantic book. It seems that the romance (what there was of it) was solely in the minds of Kendra and Hutch the main characters. As the book opens, we find Hutch leaving his fiancé at the altar as she is walking down the aisle. We find Kendra coming home with her new daughter who is actually the daughter of her late husband and another woman. Kendra and Hutch had been an item long ago and Kendra had left Hutch for Jeffrey, a rich, titled Englishman.This book centers on the day-to-day lives of Hutch and Kendra and never really gets more exciting than that. We sometimes become quite caught up in some side stories, which at times seem more interesting than what is happening with the protagonists.The characters are well written and the dialogue (what little there really is) is interesting. All in this entire book lacks something. There is nothing there to drive the story, and at times the inner-dialoguing, especially Kendra’s, can get to be too much. So many questions had been raised that were never answered. Then the novel concludes hastily, almost as if it was an after-thought.While this was not a horrible novel, I just don’t feel that this was the best book by Ms Miller

    This story begins with a wedding. But it is the wrong wedding and the groom - Hutch Carmody - calls it off just as the bride-to-be is starting down the aisle. He knows the marriage would be wrong. He had tried to talk to Brylee and call off the wedding but she just wasn't listening to him. It was time for desperate measures.Hutch has never really gotten over his first love Kendra even though they fought and she married another man. Now Kendra is back in Parable, Montana with an adopted daughter. Madison is the daughter of her ex-husband who has now passed away and one of his many girlfriends. Kendra is determined to give Madison the secure and loving childhood that she herself didn't know. She certainly doesn't want to take another chance on Hutch. After all, he broke her heart once already.But Hutch and Kendra are right for each other. Or, they would be, if they could just get over their fears and trust issues. This was a wonderful, heart-warming romance about two good people who needed each other but were afraid to take a chance on love. They are assisted to the right path by a number of unlikely "cupids." Kendra's best friend is now married to Hutch's half-brother Slade and is intent and getting the two of them together. Opal, the housekeeper for Slade and Joslyn, is also playing Cupid for the couple. And, most of all, Madison wants a new daddy and thinks Hutch would be a perfect candidate. This has all the hallmarks of a Linda Lael Miller romance. There is a small, tight-knit community. Both the hero and the heroine have a tight group of excellent friends. There are strong cowboy values. There are cute kids and lovable pets. The side characters are well-rounded and fully developed people with stories of their own too. Just a note, Ms. Miller, but I really want to read about Walker and Casey and Boone and Tara too, please.Readers looking for a feel-good romance with just a little spice can't go wrong with this story.

    Calling off a wedding is one thing, calling off a wedding during the actual wedding is another thing entirely. And the town sure does keep talking when Hutch Carmody, a rich rancher with a way for leaving broken hearts behind him, calls off his wedding while his would-have-been bride Brylee Parish is walking down the isle. Kendra Shepherd is no new witness to the ways of Hutch Carmody, having been through the romp with Hutch, Kendra can't afford to let her heart have it's way when it comes to him. Especially since she now has a daughter. Let me just say that this book is better than the first. Right from the first page I was captured by what was going on & how in the hell could someone get married and have kids during the interim of the two books! And then I was brought back to serenity when I kept reading. Hutch is definitely a swoon worthy cowboy, Aside from his good hunky dory looks, I think men who respond to children & show a loving heart to them are definitely swoon worthy. We are introduced to Madison, Kendra's adopted daughter, in the beginning of the book & the conversations this little girl has brought a different element to the book entirely. Picking up a romance, you're more entitled to be enthralled by the couple the book surrounds but, as the book progresses, you can't help but love this little girl. Kendra Sheperd is caring around a lot of issues, all from her past. Having love and lost with Hutch Carmody and having been married and divorced to Madison's father, Kendra is trying to change around her life entirely to give her daughter what she never had. Love.There is a lot I liked about this book. First, Hutch. Laaaawd, let me have a man like that & I'm good to go! Hutch is different from his brother Slade Barlow. Where Slade is more quiet & thought provoking, Hutch will speak his mind & speak it right there on the spot. And he's great with children... I mean, come on.. totally won me there! What I didn't like... well, I can't say I didn't like anything.. unless I can say I wish there was more smutty scenes? But then again, that wouldn't have boded well for the book. But, let me just say that Hutch Carmody sounds like a great lover. He loves him some foreplay & won't have it any other way. Kendra is one lucky woman to have a man devour her like he does ;) I would definitely recommend this book. If you're looking for something light and fun, then Hutch Carmody is just what you need :) I am definitely looking forward to the next book in this series. Big Sky River is said to be released by December 18, 2012. There is no blurb, but I'm sure I know just who's story it's going to be & I am super excited for it!
