Texas Roads

City gal Dani Davis just wants to find a place to call home. Miller’s Creek, Texas seems like the perfect place to start over, except for the cowboy who gives her a ride into town.

Dani secretly finances renovations to the downtown area of Miller’s Creek, but malicious rumors force her to choose between keeping her involvement a secret and the home for which she’s always longed.

Steve Miller is determined to save his dying hometown. When vandalism jeopardizes the downtown restoration project, he can’t help but suspect Dani, whose strange behavior has become fodder for local gossips.

Will Steve and Dani be able to call a truce for a higher cause, and help Dani understand the true meaning of home?

Cathy Bryant’s first novel, Texas Roads, was chosen as a finalist in the 2009 American Christian Fiction Writers' Genesis competition. She's written several devotions that have been published in books, magazines and online, and was recently named as a core writer for Full Spirit magazine. A Texas gal by birth, Cathy lives in a century-old Texas farmhouse, complete with picket fence, flowers, butterflies, and late summer mosquitoes the size of your fist.

A portion of the proceeds from this novel are being donated to Buckner International: Helping Orphans, At-Risk Children and Families

Cathy Bryant has written a solid debut novel. I enjoyed the setting of a small close-knit Texas town and Dani's yearning for a home with roots - even if everyone does stick their nose in everyone else's business! A hint of romance, a closely-guarded secret, and a bit of mystery provide dimension in this story that reminds us that our inner longings will only be satisfied by God's presence. Take a journey along the Texas Roads!

Hey, you're a day late! And we had different thoughts on this one. I do think Cathy Bryant is a great writer, but I thought this story had some weak points.
