Book Review: On Lone Star Trail by Amanda Cabot

**Complimentary products received in exchange for our honest review.  All opinions are ours and ours alone**

As part of the Revell Reads crew, I recently had the chance to review a copy of On Lone Star Trail by Amanda Cabot:


About the book:

A woman without a future. A man running from the past.
One enchanting place where broken dreams are mended.

If there's one thing Gillian Hodge never wants to see again, it's a man on a motorcycle. Her last encounter with one left her right hand crushed, ending her promising career as a concert pianist. Unsure about the next phase in her life, she heads to Rainbow's End Resort for some R&R when a sudden thunderstorm causes a motorcycle to crash right in front of her.

When TJ Benjamin's wife died, he lost more than his best friend; he lost his faith. He has spent the past year wandering the country on his motorcycle, trying not to think about the future. When he finds himself stranded with a busted bike and a reluctant rescuer, he has to wonder about God's sense of humor.

As these broken people collide, they find that a bright future is still ahead--it just might not be the one they imagined for themselves.

My thoughts:
What a lovely book!  This quick read is perfect for Spring.  As a native Texan, I love the spot-on description of the Texas hill country in springtime.  The characters of On Lone Star Trail are endearing, warm and familiar making them easy to relate to and root for.  This tale will pull at your heartstrings as it weaves the heartbreaking stories of TJ and Gillian's pasts into a really lovely, hopeful future, with an underlying Christian theme throughout.  If you are a lover of Christian romance, you are likely to enjoy On Lone Star Trail!
