Texas Tears is the second book in the Thanksgiving Books and Blessings Series featuring multiple authors. It is written by award winning, best selling author Caryl McAdoo. In this Christian Historical Western Romance, she again delivers a page turning novel.

In this story we meet Charity and Arlene, best friends. They both are interested in “Hart” Eberhart. Hart has an interfering mother. She tries to sway him in his decision about the girls. They begin the book a bit immature and bratty, but the

My Thoughts on Texas Tears:
First, Caryl McAdoo is a wonderful author. I have enjoyed all of her writings that I have been able to read. Definitely check her out and start a binge session soon.

Second, I have found that all of her books work best when read within their series. This really does give you a better feel for the characters and more back story so you don’t find yourself asking fifty questions without answers.

Third, I broke my own rule in second and didn’t read the books that come befor

I’m not sure why, but when I started this story it didn’t really draw me in. I kept reading because I always tell my students to read 10% of a book before giving up on it. By the time I read my 10% I was hooked. Texas Tears is a clean romance with characters who start out a bit like immature brats. Arlene is the girl to love - sweet, kind, and compassionate. Charity is a beauty but also a flirt who has some growing up to do. Hart is a good looking Christian young man but he is swayed by his moth ...more

Caryl McAdoo is such a sweet lady and talented author. Her smile reflects the love of Christ. I love her motto

"Praying my story gives God the glory"

I love that and I am a fan of her books. In "Texas Tears" it begins will 2 young ladies and 1 young man. Yeah, not a good combination since both young ladies want that one man. Shortly though, in walks another young man and he has his heart set on one of the young ladies. My, my, my, do you feel a storm coming? Who will win the charming Eberhart? Wi

What a great story! The rivalry between Charity and Arlene, who were closer than sisters, over a man was hard on both of them. I really don’t know how to tell what I liked about this story without giving something away. I did like the way all the characters grew and matured over the course of events, and how God was able to work in all their lives. It was a wonderful story and I would recommend this book.

This is a remarkable story with great character development. While there is quite a bit of historical information about the Statehood of Texas, it is presented in a way that is very interesting. I really liked the way God was a part of this story and how he worked in the lives of the characters. I really liked this book and highly recommend it. I look forward to the remaining stories in this series.

Arlene and Charity are both waiting for their one true love to walk into town someday. Enter Eberhart. There are lots of laughs as these gals compete for his affection and it's interesting to see how both of them handle the drama that unfolds. It isn't long before Eberhart's mother and Arlene's prayer for another suitor begin to shake things up. This is a fun journey as two young women learn about life and love in Texas during 1845.

What a fantastic book! Texas Tears' plot has different turns and twists until I think okay, then it changes again. I was enthralled through the whole book. The characters are unusual, but that's one thing that makes this book fascinating. Author Caryl McAdoo's writing of Texas Tears gave me an enjoyable read and makes me want to read more of her books.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. This review is one hundred percent my opinion.

I have read and enjoyed this series from the beginning. Caryl McAdoo has a real feel for realistic characters and plots. Young love is tough and especially when you have to choose between two young men and the possibility of hurting your best friend. I loved this book and look forward to the next one

Charity & Eberhart / Arlene & Landry

This is a well written story and the plot and characters were well thought out too. The story is about a clan of family and friends and the tale of their entertained lives. You will enjoy reading it.

Born in California, Caryl McAdoo got to Texas in time to celebrate her first birthday. As a Dallas seventh grader, she remembers a homework essay on ‘What will you be doing in 2000?’ Looking into the future, she saw herself as an inter-galactically famous author, streaking from planet to planet signing books. She laughs, “But I didn’t start writing again until the late ’80s, then was so blessed to
