On Lone Star Trail

On Lone Star Trail
Texas Crossroads, Book 3

ISBN: 978-0800734336
February 2016/368 pages/$14.99

A woman without a future. A man running from the past.
One enchanting place where broken dreams are mended.

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. Unsure about the next phase in her life, she heads to Rainbow's End Resort for some R&R when a sudden thunderstorm causes a motorcycle to crash right in front of her.

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

As these broken people collide, they find that a bright future is still ahead--it just might not be the one they imagined for themselves.

I have really enjoyed this series, and not just because it's set in Texas! This final book may be my favorite. While it can be read as a standalone, reading the first two books provides a richer experience since characters and backstory are referenced in this book. Amanda Cabot once again creates likable characters struggling with realistic issues and places them in an unlikely setting to come to terms with their situations. Cabot weaves together multiple story threads which keep the tale from dragging and further engages the reader in the lives of the characters. While the spiritual content is strong, it is neither preachy nor forced but a a natural aspect of the characters and their lives. Don't miss Lone Star Trail, and be sure to read the entire series as well!
