THE MCKETTRICK WAY
Country singer Brad O'Ballivan quits the music business at the height of his fame -- to the dismay of his fans, his agent and his former lover, businesswoman turned rancher Meg McKettrick. Having Brad back in town resurrects memories and feelings Meg would rather not face, and twice-divorced Brad isn't thrilled about the sparks flying between them, either. But, Brad's there for Meg when her long-lost father turns up with unsettling news. Linda Lael Miller's The McKettrick Way (3) has a familiar plot, characters and conflict but also its own kind of charm -- and Meg's conversations with her ghostly ancestor, Angus, are quite amusing.
