I love Linda Lael Miller’s western historical novels so much. I stumbled upon some of her books at Barnes and Noble because her books are always displayed and they are hard to miss. Since I’ve first discovered her novels I’ve tried to get as many of her wonderful books as possible. She also writes contemporary romances but I like her historicals more. I especially like her McKettrick series because it starts in the 1800’s but the series continues for a couple more generations until it’s in the present. You see how the ancesters of the present McKettrick have influenced the whole family line and that is so wonderful the read. I read the series a bit out of line last year but I finally got all the books in the series and have started reading it all from the beginning. The series has 9 novels so far and I think there are going to be more in this series because there are a lot of McKettricks. So I guess you’ve noticed that this week I’ve been reading all the books in the McKettrick series and what a series it is.
Sierra’s Homecoming is the fifth book in the series and continues the story of the stubborn and hardheaded McKettrick family. We are now in the present and we are seeing the children of the children of the first McKettrick men, Angus, Holt, Rafe, Kade and Jeb. This book is sort of a two-in-one novel because it starts out with a story about Sierra McKettrick in the present, 2007, and then you read about Hannah McKettrick who is in the past, 1919. Reading about these two women from both the past and present shows how no matter what century you live in love is a sweet yet complicated emotion. This is such a wonderful novel because I can still see the McKettrick from the past influencing the McKettrick of the present and it just makes me compare how the present McKettrick’s are just like there ancestors. This book is such a good read that I finished it up in one day and I instantly picked up the sixth book in the series wanting to read more about these fascinating McKettrick men and women and the trouble they get into. I also think that the McKettrick men pick out very strong willed women to marry and they keep these McKettrick men on their toes and it goes vice versa. Here is the description of the book from the back cover and picture:
SIERRA’S HOMECOMING $ 4.99 (Book 5)(248 Pages)
When she moved to her family’s ancestral ranch, single mom Sierra McKettrick was disconcerted by the Triple M’s handsome caretaker, Travis Reid. But when her son claimed to see a mysterious boy in the house, and an heirloom teapot started popping up in unexpected places, Sierra wondered if the attraction between herself and Travis might be the least of her worries.
In 1919, widowed Hannah McKettrick lived at the ranch with her son and her brother-in-law, Doss. Her confused feelings for Doss and her son’s health problems occupied all her thoughts…until the family teapot started disappearing. Could Sierra and her ancestor, Hannah, be living parallel lives?
