BOOK REVIEW- BIG SKY WEDDING Book #5 in the Parable Series by Linda Lael Miller
Wedding bells are ringing in Parable, Montana, but Brylee Parrish hasn't enjoyed the sound since being jilted at the altar by Hutch Carmody. She's over Hutch now, and running a multimillion-dollar business is challenging enough for this country gal. So she should avoid falling head-over-boot-heels for A-list actor Zane Sutton. He's come home to his rodeo roots, but Hollywood lured him away once and just might again. Yet everything about him, from his easy charm to his concern for his young half brother, seems too genuine to resist….
Zane didn't come to Parable for love—but count on a spirited woman to change a jaded cowboy's mind. Problem is, Brylee's not convinced he's here to stay. Good thing he's determined to prove to her, kiss by kiss, that she's meant to be his bride.AMAZON 4 stars
Although I liked this book I was hoping for a tad bit more when it came to the romance between the two. And a little bit more development when it came to the relationship between them would have be nice. Other than Brylee's attraction then her sometimes the kiss and cut and run. I totally understand why she was so skittish.
It did seem like the story was more abut Zane and his life. That is something that I do understand to a certain degree because we don't know him. The introduction of his twelve year old brother Nash did add to the story. That was one tough life that the kid had so far. Nash and Zane barely know each other, which makes things kind of awkward when Nash lands at his door. Another brother, Landry sounds kind of rich and snotty although he grew up poor right alongside of Zane. Sounds like Zane and Landry have a lot of issues to settle. They sure know how to set each other off. So far I didn't like him, although maybe he can redeem himself in his story which is the next book.
Another person who is introduced in this book is Zane's flashy, take-charge housekeeper Cleo. When I say flashy, I mean that she likes bold, colorful clothes. She kind of reminds me of Opal from other books in this series. Although Opal was a force of nature, Cleo was even a step above that. Maybe a gale force personality, in a good way. Her clothes were loud and so was she. And organized to the max. All that and a big heart too. She was a lot of fun to read about.
I noticed that this book like the others has more than one dog in it. Each with a personality that shows through whether they have been raised since puppy-hood or rescued in one way or another.
There is a steamy scene or two (which I forgot to mention about the other books) and of course the required H.E.A. I do love those.
