I absolutely love, love, LOVE Nora Roberts. I’ve been reading her books since my mom’s friend gave me her daughter’s old books and Nora Roberts’ book Three Fates was in the mix with my first Catherine Coulter’s Warrior Song. Montana Sky is a very suspenseful novel that kept me wanting more and it was divided into four parts for the four different seasons. It’s also a LifetimeTV movie that is also out on DVD and I have to say the book is better than the movie but the movie was good because it did give a sorta more physical and visiual outlook on the characters. The movie had the names and characters alright but their where a lot of scenes that were never in the book and it made it a bit disappointing for me to watch. It is romantic too and I love that mixture of suspense and romance in a novel.
The book is about 3 sisters who hardly know each other ever exsited. The all had the same father but different mothers and only Willa Mercy knew her father because she lived and worked with him on their family ranch all her life. She expected the ranch to automatically come into her hands after her fathers death but she is sure in for a surprise when her half sisters come into the picture after the funeral. Tess is from Hollywood and so she plans to come to the ranch claim her third of the ranch so she can hightail it back to her life in Hollywood. Lily is coming out of a bad marriage so she’s grateful for the place to stay at the ranch but she isn’t expecting anything because she has only learned to expect disappointment and cruelty from men. All three of these ladies are going to have to suck it up if they want to keep the ranch and the men they fall in love with along the way makes for an wonderful and entertaining novel. I recommend this book for all romance readers and anyone who is not a romance reader read it anyway and you will become a true romance reader because it is that good and I can tell you this, Nora Roberts never disappoints. Here is the description of the book from the back cover and picture:
MONTANA SKY $ 7.99 (480 Pages)
When Jack Mercy died, he left behind a lot of enemies…and a ranch worth nearly twenty million dollars. Now his three daughters—each born of a different marriage, and each unknown to the others—are gathered to hear the reading of the will.
Willa, the only one who knew her father, boldly expects that everything will be hers. Tess, who has reluctantly flown in from Hollywood, just hopes to fly back with as much cash as possible—as soon as possible. And Lily would be grateful for anything; she has learned to expect disappointment, even cruelty, from men.
But the women are shocked to learn that before any of them can inherit, they must live together on the ranch for one year. They are sisters…and strangers. Now they face a challenge: to put their bitterness aside and live like family. To protect each other from danger—and unite against an enemy who threatens to destroy all. And finally, to weave together three very different worlds in this beautiful and isolated place called Montana…
