Texas Crossroads #2

In Firefly Valley (Texas Crossroads, #2)
Published by Revell

Book Description:

Marisa St. George is devastated when she is a victim of downsizing and has no choice but to return to the small Texas town where she grew up. Though it's a giant step backward, she accepts a position as business manager at the struggling Rainbow's End resort. The only silver lining is Blake Kendall, a new guest who is making her believe in love at first sight. But will her dreams of happily-ever-after be turned upside down when she discovers who he really is?

My Opinion:
I loved this second installment. 
This is a story about trust, forgiveness and love.
Sometimes we are hurt so badly by others that we never give anyone a chance to show us another way.  Marisa grew up in a small town and everyone knew about her dad's drinking problems and the fact that one day he just up and left his family.  Marisa spent years trying to find him, but not for herself.  She felt if she found him then her mom could find some closure to their relationship.
Marisa is a character that I wanted to applaud one minute and tell her off the next.  She let her past dictate her future too much.  Blake Kendall is a wonderful character who has been shaped by his past.  He is an author who is experiencing writer's block.  He is hoping his time spent at Rainbow's End resort will help with his creative flow.  Meeting Marisa gives him a chance to experience the sweetness of small town life.  
The book cover is absolutely beautiful and shows the sweetness of the story inside.  
Ms. Cabot brings this story to life through her well developed characters and vivid imagery .  This is a sweet story with a small amount of conflict.  It shows real life problems and issues. The author weaves the story of faith throughout the story. This is a wonderful story that I would recommend to anyone who loves a good Christian story. 
I received this book from Revell  for a honest review.

Amanda Cabot

With both parents avid readers, it's no surprise that Amanda Cabot learned to read at an early age. From there it was only a small step to deciding to become a writer. Of course, deciding and becoming are two different things, as she soon discovered. Fortunately for the world, her first attempts at fiction were not published, but she did meet her goal of selling a novel by her thirtieth birthday. Since then she’s sold more than thirty novels under a variety of pseudonyms. When she’s not writing, Amanda enjoys sewing, cooking and – of course – reading.
