On Lone Star Trail By: Amanda Cabot

Back of the Book

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 thoughts

On Lone Star Trail has a smooth flow and while it has some ups and downs none of that feels dramatic enough to change the feel of the novel.  Gilliam and T.J. are both likable characters with difficult pasts that are written so they are easy to relate to, and draw you into their story.  Being the 3rd book in the Texas Cross Roads series there are also return characters that add dimension to the book.  This book was enjoyable, even though it lacked suspense and drama, it kept me entertained.  I would suggest reading the first books in the series to get a feel for the characters.

I was given this book free from Revell Publishing for my honest review.
