The Bluebonnet Bride was such fun to read. It is the first in an inspirational novella series. Although it is a novella and as such is a bit shorter than a full-length novel, the author did a great job of creating fully developed characters and a story line that kept me reading and enjoying right to the end.
I really liked Amy and Daniel. They both had such depth. Daniel was an all around great guy who really stepped up when needed and was willing to put others before himself. Amy had a very hard life growing up. She was slow to trust others and definitely has had bad experiences concerning God. I’m hoping that in future stories we will be able to see Amy someday trust her life to Christ.
The Bluebonnet Bride was a sweet, enjoyable romance and I’m looking forward to the other books in the series.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
USA TODAY bestselling author Pamela Tracy introduces the Lone Star Brides series with a charming story of unexpected love…
Amy has never had a home. Will she find one in the arms of a cowboy?
This is Daniel Starr’s year. He’s moving up the rankings on the bull-riding circuit and is determined to catch his twin brother. Nothing is going to stop him. Well, almost nothing. When his beloved grandmother falls and needs a caretaker, Daniel finds himself on the road back to Pecan, Texas, rather than making the next rodeo. Why did this happen now? And why, when he’s jeopardizing his career to come home, does Miss Bossypants Amy Benjamin think he’s not doing enough?
Amy knows all about the swashbuckling Starr Brothers, but anyone who turns his back on her beloved Pecan–and on his own grandmother–doesn’t deserve admiration. If Amy had been lucky enough to have family like Grandma Starr, her life would have been so different! Well, she’s going to make sure Daniel does his duty. But the longer he stays in Pecan, the harder it’ll be to see him go…
