On Lone Star Trail


 
GIVEAWAY

 CABOT, AMANDA
ON LONE STAR TRAIL

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:

A strong finale to the Texas Crossroads series. Packs an emotional wallop that knocked the stuffing out of me! Cabot shredded my insides out and made my heart hurt more than a time or two and then, just to keep me on my toes, she'd slap me silly with a startling faith-based truth. Gillian and TJ are two wounded souls trying to navigate their way back from the brink of despair. They have to learn that God can be trusted even in the bad times. Especially in the bad times. But oh my goodness that's a hard lesson to learn. And just as hard to read. And so rewarding when it all comes together in one glorious, soul-stirring, heart-singing read.
