Today I welcome best-selling author Linda Lael Miller to Colloquium for the first time!
Linda’s latest book, Big Sky Country, has just been released. Sheriff Slade Barlow grew up in a trailer hitched to his mother’s hair salon, the Curly-Burly hair salon. Slade has never been acknowledged by his father, a wealthy rancher. But Slade’s life changes suddenly when he inherits half of Whisper Creek Ranch, one of the most prosperous in Parable, Montana. His half brother, Hutch, grew up with all the privileges associated with being a member of the Carmody family and is decidedly unhappy about sharing his legacy with an illegitimate sibling.
Joslyn Kirk, local homecoming, rodeo and beauty queen has returned to Parable only for a short time — just long enough to pay back all of the folks that her unscrupulous stepfather swindled and Slade has a town to protect, in addition to his own rebellious teenage stepdaughter. Is Slade the right man to convince Joslyn that she’s not responsible for her stepfather’s misdeeds, but she is responsible for the impact she still has on Slade, despite his disillusionment with love?
