On Lone Star Trail by Amanda Cabot (Review)


  • Series: Texas Crossroads (Book 3)
  • Paperback: 368 pages
  • Publisher: Revell (February 2, 2016)
  • ISBN-13: 978-0800734336


  • If there's one thing Gillian Hodge never wants to see again, it's a man on a motorcycle. Her last encounter with one left her right hand crushed, ending her promising career as a concert pianist. But as she heads to Rainbow's End Resort, a sudden thunderstorm causes a motorcycle to crash in front of her.

    When TJ Benjamin's wife died, he lost more than his best friend; he lost his faith. He's spent the past year wandering the country on a motorcycle, trying not to think about his future. When he finds himself stranded with a busted bike and a reluctant rescuer, he has to wonder about God's sense of humor.

    Can this woman without a future and this man running from his past find romance in the present? Or are they too tied to the way life used to be?

    My Review:

    I loved this book. It is book three in the Texas Crossroads series. The setting and characters are the same with the addition of T J Benjamin. You do find out more of what happened to the main characters in the first two books so if that bothers you read the series in the order. I enjoyed reading all three of them. The main two characters in this story are Gillian and T J. They had good chemistry from the beginning. I liked the plot line and the author did a good job developing it and the characters. The setting was unique and I liked it. Rainbow's End Resort is an interesting idea. Overall a good contemporary Christian romance book.



                         

    With both parents avid readers, it's no surprise that Amanda Cabot learned to read at an early age. From there it was only a small step to deciding to become a writer. Of course, deciding and becoming are two different things, as she soon discovered. Fortunately for the world, her first attempts at fiction, which included a play for her fifth grade class entitled "All About Thermometers," were not published, but she did meet her goal of selling a novel by her thirtieth birthday. Since then she's sold more than thirty novels under a variety of pseudonyms. When she's not writing, Amanda enjoys sewing, cooking and - of course - reading.
