When Jack Mercy died, he left behind a ranch worth nearly twenty million dollars. Now his three daughters - each born of a different mother, and each unknown to the others - are gathered to hear the reading of the will. But the women are shocked to learn that before any of them can inherit, they must live together on the ranch for one year. For Tess, a sophisticated city-girl who just wants to collect her cash and get back to L.A., it's a nightmare. For Lily, on the run from her abusive ex-husband, it's a refuge. And for Willa - who grew up on the ranch - it's an intrusion into her rightful home. They are sisters and strangers. Now they face a challenge: to put their bitterness aside and live like a family. To protect each other from danger - and unite against a brutal enemy who threatens to destroy them all...

Sisters of the West
This is a longish book. It has to be, interweaving three plots, three half-sisters, and of course three handsome young men, one for each sister. The father through whom the women are related has played a nasty joke by forcing them to live on his ranch together for a year in order to inherit a share of its worth. We move through a character development in which the three sisters slowly shed their antipathy for each other and the country of the big sky, and into a true relationship that is encompassed by the great West. The usual Roberts' sexual descriptions can get a bit boring, but the characters, after a slow beginning, prove likeable.

I really have to admit,one really shouldn't judge a book by its cover. I found that it really dragged in the beginning, but it was worth it in the end. I didn't want it to end. This is definitely one of the best books that I've read this year.
Publishers Weekly, 1996-01-22 Having published 100 novels in 15 years, Roberts (True Betrayals) just keeps getting better. In life, Jack Mercy, owner of the 25,000-acre Mercy Ranch, garnered more enemies than friends. His death promises to do the same, since his will forces his three grown daughters, half-sisters and virtual strangers to one another, to live together at the Montana ranch for a year or forfeit his estate, worth up to $20 million. If any die during the year, the survivor(s) will inherit the fortune, assuming they last the 12 months. Giving it a go are bossy Willa, part Blackfoot Indian, the only sister who lived on the ranch and is capable of running it; Tess, a sassy Hollywood scriptwriter who wants money but balks at a family reunion; and meek, divorced Lily, grateful for refuge. As the siblings settle in, someone begins committing barbaric acts against animals and then humans: Are these the random crimes of a psychopath? Or are they a devious distraction in a sinister game plan? Roberts balances the tension and sometimes gruesome action with three romances, crackling dialogue and a snappy infusion of humor. Setting her rich narrative against majestic scenery integral to the plot, she again demonstrates why, in 1986, she was the first author inducted into the Romance Writers of America's Hall of Fame. 150,000 first printing; $200,000 ad/promo; Literary Guild featured alternate; author tour.
