#1 NYT bestselling author Linda Lael Miller


Holding Strong

“Big Sky Country” is hanging in at #2 on the Times list!  YES!!

We have sunshine today, and I’m loving it.  Yesterday afternoon, we had a duck-drowner of a rain storm, complete with thunder and lightning.  I had just finished writing for the day and we all–Mary Ann, Jen, Chris and I–sat in the kitchen and watched the light show.  It was absolutely spectacular!

I’m reading “Gone Girl” on my Nook–a suspense thriller about a missing woman.  I intended to read a chapter or two, and ended up staying up LATE.  I finally forced myself to turn off the device at about the halfway point and go to sleep.

Today, I’ll be happily at work on “Big Sky River”, the third Big Sky book.  I’m back in the groove after my art trip to California, and it sure feels good.  I just love hanging out with these Parable people–they’re a lot of fun.  :)  They make me laugh, they make me cry, and they break my heart–and that’s just the people.  Then there are the dogs and horses and cats…

Bernice is angling for her trip to the barn.  :)  No day is complete, from the Yorkie’s viewpoint, without some hay sniffing.  :)  Chris put the horses in yesterday, so they’d be out of the rain.  Larry, the Canadian wrangler, was on the golf course and came home drenched.  He’d called ahead to ask, “Did somebody put the horses in?”

That’s how it goes around here, on the Crazy-Lazy-Triple L.  :)

Be well, be happy, and be kind.

    Linda, Loved the new series BIG SKY COUNTRY. I also just read the Women of Primrose Creek and ordered the followup book Last Chance Cafe. Is this going to be another series like the McKettricks? The McQuarry families are big enough to start a whole new series. Please please please!!!

      HI, Vicki, pardon me for interrupting, but I have to tell you that THE LAST CHANCE CAFE is one of my top 10 all-time favorite books. You will love it! A movie was made of this story but, I hate to say that the book is far superior (I think most movies don’t feel as complete as the books they are based on). I thought Last Chance Cafe was a stand-alone (?). Regardless, it’s a fabulous book, I hope you do read it soon! Hilda.

          Hi, Crystal. I was typing my reply and I hit something wrong and it disappeared, so I apologize if it suddenly shows up along with this new reply. Anyway, yes, the movie was based on the book but it left a LOT of important stuff out. I paid $35 for the movie but it sure wasn’t worth it; I didn’t know that at the time, obviously. I’m just going to read the book again some time; I’ll enjoy that much more than the movie. Anyone who wants to buy the movie from me is welcome to it, but I don’t guarantee you’ll enjoy it. The movie did Linda’s masterpiece a big injustice, if I can say it that way. I hope the next movie will have a much better screenplay writer, like maybe Linda herself??????? (just a thought!) Cheers!

    I am currently reading “Big Sky Country” and loving it! I was just cracking up about the euphemism Lyle used about being hungry. It reminded me of some of the ones my dad uses like, “my stomach is about to sue my back bone for support”. I just cannot get enough of your stories and I often read my nook until I can no longer see. I just wanted to thank you for sharing your wonderful talents and I look forward to reading more… Lisa
