When three sisters complete strangers to each other try to live and work together on a ranch in Montana, sparks are bound to fly.The Wounded Deer, Hollywood and Cowgirl will have to put their differences aside and perhaps become the family they were meant to be.A perfect read for a rainy day You ll get to sigh at tender moments and chuckle or even laugh out loud at funny scenes and witty dialogues I highly recommend it for all lovers of romance with a bit of thriller and mystery thrown in When three sisters complete strangers to each other try to live and work together on a ranch in

other in every single chapter A great story I truly enjoyed The death of her father took Willa Mercy by surprise he hadn t even told her he was sick Finding out that the cold man who she d tried her entire life to please had left a will that took away the home she d grown up in and the ranch she d worked on for her entire life and split it between herself and two half sisters she d never even met, demanding that to get anything, they all had to live together on Mercy ranch for a year, is a betrayal that she can t even process Then, still reeling from The death of her father took Willa Mercy by surprise he hadn t even told her he was sick Finding out that the cold man who she d tried her entire life to please had left a will that took away the home she d grown up in and the ranch she d worked on for her entire life and split it between herself and two half sisters she d never even met, demanding that to get anything, they all had to live together on Mercy ranch for a year, is a betrayal that she can t even process Then, still reeling from that affront, Willa stumbles across the butchered carcass of one of her cattle And the only animal who would do something like thatis man As three strangers struggle with each other and the legacy of the unbending, frigid man who was their father, a psychotic killer stalks Mercy and threatens them all.It was 1997 when I first read Montana Sky I d never read anything quite like it, and it turned me on to the exquisite blend of romance and suspense and mystery that Roberts is so acclaimed at writing Since then, I ve read almost every book Roberts has published, regardless of genre.Montana Sky is, at its core, a story about the bonds of family those shared through blood and those born and nurtured through affection, dedication, and love Three sisters first meet, then spark off each other as they start to know each other, eventually like each othermostly, then love each other unquestionably As those tentative family bonds are laid, so too are the bonds with three impressive men who love them It s heartwarming and horrifying at turns, and despite its age, has a timelessness that keeps it from feeling dated It s still one of my favorites of Roberts, despite having a few issues with it as a whole.It s quite long, first of all, and despite Roberts using that length to develop every aspect of the plot sufficiently, I still felt like there were some parts that could have been trimmed down and streamlined in the plot and in the narrative A few superfluous scenes bogged down the pacing from time to time I would have also preferred to have Willa and Ben be the sole romance, as the relationships between Adam and Lily and Tess and Nate were quite clearly not the focus of the story and weren t given enough room to really expand into three dimensions, either And despite the fact that Willa and Ben s relationship is the backbone of the romantic aspects in the book, the conclusion of that relationship arc felt a little less satisfying than those of Lily and Tess and their loves That s personal preference and opinion, of course.Despite those few issues, Montana Sky is a compelling, sweeping saga still a compelling and sweeping saga, actually, and is rich and decadent with the benefits of Roberts lyricism of prose and her unparalleled ability to draw a reader into the scenes of the book so completely that you can smell the snow on the mountain peaks after a blizzard and feel the trickle of sweat down your spine when the characters are stringing the fences I loved revisiting this book after so many years and so many fond Roberts memories.A caution to sensitive readers there are scenes that dip into the deranged psychosis of a killer s mind and detail the savagery of his crimes not to gruesome levels though that s subjective , but definitely farthan just glossing over them This is not simply a contemporary romance and does have brutally dark edgescommonly found in romantic suspense or thrillers It may be too graphic in some places for some readers Reviewed for One Good Book Deserves Another Three stories in one, about three half sisters who are forced to live together for a year if they want the inheritance their awful late father left them.Tess, the oldest, is an L.A screenwriter who wanted to get what little money her father left for her and return home Lily, the middle sister, had been abused and was moving from place to place, always looking over her shoulder for her ex husband to find her again Willa, the youngest one, grew up in the farm, working hard at the ranch to gain Three stories in one, about three half sisters who are forced to live together for a year if they want the inheritance their awful late father left them.Tess, the oldest, is an L.A screenwriter who wanted to get what little money her father left for her and return home Lily, the middle sister, had been abused and was moving from place to place, always looking over her shoulder for her ex husband to find her again Willa, the youngest one, grew up in the farm, working hard at the ranch to gain her father s approval.All three of them are beyond surprised by the stipulation for their inheritance Tess has no idea how she ll survive a year away from civilisation, Lily is relieved to be in such a remote place where she feels safe, and Willa is feeling beyond betrayed by her father, who even after death didn t acknowledge any of her hard work.The will stated that Willa, who would be running the ranch, would be under supervision by their closest neighbour and competitor, Ben, as well as Nate, another neighbour and the lawyer who is handling the family s legal affairs Adam, who is in charge of the ranch s horse breeding side and is also Willa s half brother rounds up the cast.Adam is drawn to wounded Lily, who learns to trust men again through his gentleness and patience, Tess learns that there sto life apart from the civilisation she s left behind, and finds happiness with Nate, a man whose contradictions surprise her, and Willa eventually succumbs to the attraction between herself and Ben, whom she d been arguing and competing with all her life.A mystery helps in bringing them all close as well, since someone is mutilating cattle, before eventually escalating to people, and they seem to have it out for the Mercy sisters, while view spoiler Lily s ex is also around, working as a farm hand in Ben s ranch waiting for the year to pass so that he can snatch Lily and her new wealth away He becomes impatient when Lily starts planning her wedding to Adam and kidnaps her before then, but she s no longer the timid version of herself he d known, and survives long enough to be rescued.Her ex isn t the killer, however, and ends up dead himself, and it takes being caught red handed for the real killer to be revealed as Jim, one of the Mercy ranch farm hands who claimed to be the girls half brother hide spoiler.The mystery was very well done, since view spoiler it was quite confusing as to who the culprit was, and for a big part of the book I d thought that Lily s ex was the one also killing people, and even when it was revealed that he wasn t, I couldn t figure out who it was before it was revealed hide spoiler.A satisfying story with solid, evolving relationships both between the sisters and the couples, and happy endings all around Gripping suspense plot, character to fall in love with and a slow burn romance all click in this story Just a wonderful book I would love it if the three sisters would take Jack s portrait and make a bonfire with it The man should have never procreated, but then there wouldn t have been Willa, Lily and Tess They were truly better than the SOB deserved Maybe it was a good thing he could have cared less about them while he was alive It was truly sad that Willa strived all her life for a kind Gripping suspense plot, character to fall in love with and a slow burn romance all click in
