Texas Roads by Cathy Bryant ~ 5 stars

Texas Roads
Cathy Bryant
Miller's Creek, Texas series #1
WordVessel Press
About the book:
City gal Dani Davis just wants to find a place to call home. Miller’s Creek, Texas seems like the perfect place to start over, except for the cowboy who gives her a ride into town.

Dani secretly finances renovations to the downtown area of Miller’s Creek, but malicious rumors force her to choose between keeping her involvement a secret and the home for which she’s always longed.

Steve Miller is determined to save his dying hometown. When vandalism jeopardizes the downtown restoration project, he can’t help but suspect Dani, whose strange behavior has become fodder for local gossips.

Will Steve and Dani be able to call a truce for a higher cause, and help Dani understand the true meaning of home?

My review:
Texas Roads is such a sweet story! I really loved reading this book. It is a great commentary on trust and letting God take care of your hurts and heal you. Being upfront with people is another theme that really stuck out to me. It even shows how lying or even keeping a secret can cause huge problems, even if you are hiding something for a good reason. Dani and especially Steve are great characters! I really love Steve. He is protective, gentle, and a man of integrity. Loved it all!
