I am really conflicted about this book. I loved the writing, and the author did such a good job of world-building. However, the climax was anything but. And there were a few more problems, which I’ll address.

Jolie Jensen is twenty-seven years old, with a ten year old child, and she’s on the run from her drug-addicted loser of an ex-husband, Billy Jensen. Jolie’s cousin Amanda has set up a job and a place for her and the child to live Lockette, Texas, a tiny ranching town where Amanda lives.

This book reminded me of Susan Wiggs or Robin Carr in that there are multiple story lines going on at the same time.

The H/h spent very little time together on paper and I just didn't see them falling in love. Very little POV from the hero.
That said, I did like the book just wish I was more interested in the H/h.

I loved this book. It's just the type of light, breezy read that I need when I want to relax.With several story lines weaving their way through the lives of different characters,there was just enough action and drama to keep one interested from one page to the next.

This sequel to "Lone Star Woman" is great! I love all of the relationships -- the supporting cast really help make this story!
