Big Sky Secrets (Parable, Montana #6) by Linda Lael Miller
What Goodreads says:
The First Lady of the West #1 New York Times bestselling author Linda Lael Miller delivers the stunning finale of her acclaimed series set in Parable, Montana; where love awaits.
Self-made tycoon Landry Sutton heads to Hangman Bend's Ranch to sell his land to his brother Zane. Though he's got cowboy in his blood, Landry plans to return to city life before the dust even settles on his boots. Of course, he didn't count on falling for Big Sky Country or Ria Manning.
Ria's starting to settle into country life herself until she has a close encounter of the terrifying kind with a buffalo. Turns out the peeping monster belongs to the cowboy next door and he has her running even more scared than his bison. She wants a home where the buffalo don't roam, and the men don't either. Could Landry's homecoming be her heart's undoing?
Big Sky Secrets, the last book in the Parable, Montana series, is a winner. Ria is a great character. She comes with some baggage and is trying to get the life she wants. Add a sister with problems, a run-away niece, and her neighbor’s buffalo and you have the start to a great story.
The casts of characters from the first books all make at least a cameo appearance but the book is almost all Landry and Ria. The two have the usual problems getting together but the story is told in such a way that everything seems fresh and new. I did think I saw at least one hook for a new story featuring a character introduced in Big Sky Secrets. Since this is listed as the final book in the Parable, Montana series that character will be featured in a new series.
