On Lone Star Trail

On Lone Star Trail
Texas Crossroads Book 3
Amanda Cabot
Gillian, a concert pianist, is on her way to Rainbow's End after an accident with a motorcyclist ruined her career. She's hoping that some time in the Texas country side with friends will help her decide what direction her life is going to take since she can no longer play the piano. TJ, a former teacher, has been touring the US on his motorcycle hitting all of the spots his late wife wanted to travel to. He's bitter, depressed, and wandering in both life and faith. So when he loses control of his motorcycle in front of Gillian on the road to Rainbow's End, the two become unlikely friends. God is going to have to preform several miracles to get these two back into the path He's chosen for them.

This was my favorite book in the series. The story, while filled with road blocks and drama for the main characters, flowed smoothly and was easy to read. The author brought out the faith element more in this book. The relationships were authentic and felt real. I liked getting a peak at characters from the previous books. The author seems to be growing in her writing technique and I'm enjoying her books more as each one comes out. My only complaint would be one that is often the case in stories with short timelines. There were several very unrealistic things in the plot. My largest pet peeve is how the motorcycle accident was written. The author clearly isn't a rider. But that is a personal complaint, so I didn't let it detract from the story. This is a newish author to check out if you enjoy sweet romances, beautifully written scenery, and faith inspired plots.

I received this book free of charge from Revell Reads in exchange for my honest review.
