Caroline’s Child is the third of the Heart of Texas series by Debbie Macomber. Promise’s postmistress, Caroline Daniels is the unmarried mother of five-year-old Maggie. While she’s known him for years, lately her verbal exchanges with Grady Weston, older brother of her good friend Savannah, have become remarkable in their rancour. Surprising, really, because she likes and respects the man, although his occasional shouting does upset Maggie. Eventually, Grady plucks up the courage to ask Caroline...more
I'm particularly enjoying this series from Debbie Macomber. This set is based in the town of Promise, TX, and I really enjoy the smooth transition from volume to volume, as we get to revisit and build upon the story we have already come to love. This entry features the stories of Grady and Caroline, and Jane and Cal while allowing us to spend time with Suzanna and Laredo from Volume 1, as well as Elsie and Glen. We got to know many more residents of Promise in this volume, and as always with Mac...more
Liked Caroline's child with the banter that went on between Grady and Caroline before they realized their love for each other. In Dr. Texas liked the determination of the female doctor in trying to get what she wants in visiting the ghost town and riding the horse. Liked how The postmistress stood her ground in after 10 years of just having a boyfriend.

More romance and schemes :)

Wonderful series, hard to put down.

This is the combination (re-print) of two novels in the Hart of Texas saga (Caroline’s Child and Dr. Texas). I do love all these characters and I love how each book spotlights a different set of characters. These two highlight two different love stories and we find out who fathered Maggie! Instead of following just one character through-out the eight books, the readers gets to see everyone’s lives. A great way to keep the series going and keep the readers’ interest peaked.
This like all of Debbie Macomber books is easy and fast romances. I love to read them because they are clean and take my mind away very easily.
I've enjoyed her books because they are more gentle in lifestyle than some of my chick lit. No pre-marital sex, cursing is very light and rare. Easy reads, light-hearted. This series is more on the romances in the town of Promise, Texas. The Blossom Street series seems to focus more on different women issues. I've been reading from both sets and find them interesting for different reasons.

Very much enjoyed storiy of Caroline and Grady as the progress find the way to each other and also the story of Cal and Jane. I like the way the author continues to update the people in the story that I am reading and those from the last books. I am beginning to feel like they are all old friends and do not want to put the book down.
I will be sad to end this series.
This is volume 2 of the series that takes place in Promise, Texas. I am a sucker for Debbie Macomber and her tales of people who live in small towns. This was written before her Cedar Cove series and is just as good. You get involved in the characters lives and their problems. Good read.
Virginia Markhart
Call me old fashioned, I really don't care. I loved this book about simple life. Aww. Small town USA. Gotta love it. This was a freebie picked up at my office. Good ole cowboy meets city girl, or cowboy meets town girl. Nothing better than seeing them fall

Two great stories ... Debbie Macomber style. The setting is Promise, Texas, a ranching community in the heart of Hill Country. What a nice place to live and raise a family, but there are always secrets in the town. It's fun to see what Debbie comes up with next.
HEART OF TEXAS VOLUME 2 is a combination of two books by Debbie Macomber, CAROLINE' S CHILD and DR.TEXAS. Both books involve romance stories taking place in the small town of Promise, Texas. Touching, easy read.

I like Debbie Macomber books and this was no exemption. Sweet, kisses but no sex. The only problem was that it started very slowly and it took a while to get to know the characters.
I liked Vol 2 as much as Vol 1. Cute and romantic stories about people in small town TX. I'll go ahead and finish out the series and read Vol.3 once I pick it up at the library.
I just love Debbie Macomber books and the way she writes and you get to know the characters. When I want a great easy read with happy endings I always choose Debbie Macomber.
I finished this book a the car-ride from NC to PA. I loved this book as a follow-up to the first one and immediately started the third book in the series!! =)
Not bad! Debbie Macomber has a way of writing stories that draw you into the storyline and the characters. I really have enjoyed her stories and characters.
Kinda like a 'good ol' boys' story in Texas, but I recognized some of the names of cities. Easy. Light, great on the long flight from Barcelona to KC!
Ann Boytim
Easy reading book - all the same characters in the first book and all their lives intertwining. I keep enjoying all of Debbie Macombers books
This is the second novel of a 3 volume set. Was so good ... could not wait to start the next volume. Read all 3 volumes while on a weeklong trip.
Unlike her other books, you continue to follow all the characters from the first volume. Still waiting to crack the ghost town mystery.
This was a very, very, good book and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a very good read.
Jaimie Duplain
This one just lets you know that you don't have to be from Texas to fit right in! :)
Michelle Thomas
My favorite part of this series is the ghost town and the passion for roses.
Bobi Tribble
Couldn't put it down better than the 1st book starting the 3rd tonight!
Janel Bihn
Typical Debbie Macomber style - enough suspense to want to keep reading.
fun fast reads! These are good no brainer books, clean, light romance.
Julie Carosella
