The Cowboy Who Saved Christmas

It’s beginning to look a lot like… well, Halloween, but on bookstore shelves and in supermarket checkout lines, it’s time for Christmas!  Kensington’s The Cowboy Who Saved Christmas is an anthology of historical western romances set during the winter months.  Though one is a bit dicey, the ...

Indigo Lake

I picked up Indigo Lake for review because I’ve read Jodi Thomas before and liked her work. Not so much that I follow her release schedule closely, but enough that when I saw she had something new coming out, I felt comfortable grabbing it without digging deeply into the synopsis. In other words, ...

Wild Horse Springs

There hasn’t been a single Jodi Thomas book that I’ve picked up and been disappointed with. Her quiet storytelling really speaks to me. While this book has some gripping action, overall, it’s a gentle tale of three intertwining strands. Dan Brigman is the sheriff of Crossroads, Texas, a man ...

Promise Me Texas

Have you ever sat down to read a book and just not clicked with it? There’s nothing clearly wrong with the story—no major plot holes or overly annoying characters.

The old-timey method of telling a tale meanders like a winding river, languidly moving from the main point, through adjacent stories and around pivotal points, finally arriving at the crux of the matter. Thomas is a master of this type of circuitous storytelling. Her latest Harmony, Texas, novel inv ...

Wild Texas Rose

I’m usually pretty forgiving about who I invite to a party, but sometimes there are limits. Like if you’d invited a friend and their partner to a nice quiet dinner, then found that your friend had brought their friend and partner. Then at 8pm, a friend of the friend pops up. And at 10pm, a frien ...

The Comforts of Home

Have you ever gone on a binge, reading books that hold your interest while you read them, but a couple of days later you can't remember at all? While The Comforts of Home held my interest while I was reading it, it wasn’t a memorable book for me. In addition, this is not a standalone book and con ...
