I enjoyed watching Vickie gain in her self-confidence as she made amends for her past wrongs. Jake was a great, loyal Texas guy. I am such a sucker for reunion stories.

Lone Star Hero by Jolene Navarro was an excellent, engaging novel. Set in Clearwater, Texas, the story revolves around state trooper, Jake Torres, and the woman he's always loved, Vickie Lawson. Vickie, now a single mother of two, has fallen upon hard times after the dissolution of her marriage. Back in her hometown of Clearwater, Vickie is intent on picking up the pieces of her life and making amends for those she's hurt in the past. Misunderstandings and pride have always prevented them from b

"The cast of small-town characters is believable, especially in their struggle to find life’s purpose. They show the difficulty associated with asking for, and accepting, forgiveness" (RT Book Reviews). 4 stars

This was a nice surprise! A little suspense, a little drama and a nice look at normal Christians dealing with life but relying on God.

Jolene Navarro writes "Lone Star Hero"

I had not read this author before but it was story of second chances and I love to read about them. Vickie Lawson came from a family of means and prominence in the community, She grew up best friends with a young boy by the name of Jake. this young man was not so well to do and her Mom tried to seperate them when they seemed to be getting serious in their teens.
Misunderstandings between Vickie and Jake led them in different directions.

This was a "can't put it down" book for me from the first page. It's the story of Vickie Lawson, who comes home to Clear Water, TX after her divorce. She is overwhelmed by the divorce with limited funds, a dad who supports her, a mom who thinks the world of Vickie's ex Tommy, two kids that don't understand, and an ex who's getting remarried. She's trying to do everything on her own. Vickie's best friend from her childhood, Jake Torres, still lives in Clear Water and still loves her. They resume ...more

A great syory

I thought the story started a little slow and I almost quit reading it. I'm so glad I didn't! The story took off and I was hooked. It's a great story about having the faith to let go of past mistakes and turn control over to God. A woman struggles with her past mistakes but can't escape how she feels about an old flame. I recommend it.

I won this book on the GoodReads Giveaway contest. It is a very easy read and the story flows well. I always enjoy a story with horses thrown in for spice. A nice romance story with the drama of a conniving ex-husband and a happy ending. Always love a happy ending.

Single mom moves back to her hometown with her two kids. She is very independent. She doesn't want to depend on anyone, not her parents or even her childhood sweetheart. I love the way the story is told. Can she learn to trust again? Read it and find out for yourself.
