Book Review - Texas Pursuit

Texas Pursuit
By Debra White Smith


First, let me tell you that I read this book in one day. Yes, it was that good. I just couldn't put it down. From page one, I was drawn into the story and had interest in what was going to happen to the characters. I love a story like that - you don't have to keep reading and reading to finally have some empathy for the characters. The story kept me on the edge of my seat (so to speak) throughout the whole book. Just when I thought I had it all figured out, I didn't. Don't you love that?

The story is romantic but more importantly, for me anyway, the story was intriguing. You weren't sure what was going to happen - there was some mystery to it. The characters were believable and human. The romance was sweet and not sappy.

Here's what makes the book the best for me, however. The Christian walk that some of the characters have is normal. How many times have I read a Christian fiction book where the characters are either saints or spouting the Gospel at every unconceivable moment? Neither one of these senarios is realistic. Tanya's (the main character) walk with the Lord is real and something I could relate to. She's always trying to do better but isn't a saint that intimidates those around her, including the reader.

I also like the family dynamics in this book. Tanya's relationship with her parents is sweet and truly what family should be like. Her parent's interest and concern for her is wonderful yet never intrusive.

This book is the second book in Debra White Smith's "Lone Star Intrigue" series, however, it totally stands alone. You won't be wondering about what happened before with any of the characters because this story is a story all to itself. If you're like me, though, you're going to want to run out and get the first book, "Texas Heat".

I highly recommend this book. It was just a very pleasant read with lots of wonderful characters and a great storyline.

I will add this book to my Amazon Widget if you would like to purchase it.

This book was provided to me for review by Debra White Smith.

God bless you - Julie
