Texas Roads by Cathy Bryant


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?

My take:~

Cathy Bryant's Texas Roads was a 2009 ACFW Genesis Finalist and with good reason. A satisfying and appealing contemporary romance with small town charm and authentic characters, struggling with past pain and matters of faith. Cathy drew me in to Dani's dilemma from the beginning and I particularly enjoyed watching Steve's wariness of the "snooty, city woman" diffuse naturally rather than in the blink of an eye as some novelists are want to do. Cathy's writing is equal to many authors writing for traditional publishing houses and I hope we see more of this author in the future. Nicely done, Cathy :)

With thanks to the author for my review copy
