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?

 

Thoughts:

In this second book in the Texas Crossroads series, Amanda Cabot takes readers back to the Texas Hill Country and the Rainbow’s End resort.  Although I have not read Book 1, At Bluebonnet Lake, I was easily able to enjoy this story, as plenty of details are given in regard to the plot of the first book.

In Firefly Valley is a heartfelt story of learning to forgive and learning to love!  With a cast of delightful characters, the gentle pace of the story matches the pace of life in its small town setting.  When life takes an unexpected turn for Marisa St. George, she returns to her hometown of Dupree, Texas.  “She’s lost her dream job, but has she found the man of her dreams?”

I enjoyed Marisa and Blake’s story and their journey of forgiveness and love.  I also enjoyed the secondary story lines and look forward to spending more time at Rainbow’s End.  The next Texas Crossroads novel, On Lone Star Trail, is scheduled to release next spring.   

I received a complimentary copy of In Firefly Valley from the publisher.  I appreciate the opportunity to read this book and share my honest opinion.

 

Amanda CabotWith 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, which included a play for her fifth grade class entitled “All About Thermometers,” 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.
