On Lone Star Trail (Texas Crossroads #3) by Amanda Cabot {Book Review}

Texas Crossroads #3
Contemporary Fiction

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.


My Thoughts

Can you imagine spending your entire life working towards your dream only to have it snatched away in one fateful moment? That's exactly where Gillian finds herself. She spent years becoming a concert pianist but on an ordinary day an accident shattered that dream.

After months of physical therapy to restore full movement in Gillian's hand the therapists have decided that they've done all that they can and Gillian's career as a concert pianist comes to an end. For a change of scenery and a time to regroup Gillian heads to Rainbow's End Resort.

If you've read the previous two books in the series you know that Gillian is good friends with the resort owners, Greg and Kate, who by the way are expecting their first baby. Just before she arrives at the resort T.J. Benjamin crashes into her. No one is hurt, but what's a body to do but offer a lift to the stranded motorcyclist.

T.J. has no plans to stay in Dupree, TX but finds himself stuck until his motorcycle can be repaired. As Providence would have it Greg offers T.J. a room in exchange for a favor. That favor will prove to be pivotal in T.J.'s future. 

On Lone Star Trail was so much more than a warm and fuzzy romance. Amanda Cabot allowed us to look into the lives of two people who where searching for answers to the future and found not only what they needed but each other as well. 

I've enjoyed the entire Texas Crossroads series. It was a delightful trip to Rainbow's End each time. I was excited to see the new developments and also the new faces. If it were a real place I'd head there in a heartbeat just to meet everyone and eat some of Carmen's amazing meals!
