On My Nightstand - Texas Roads by Cathy Bryant
Dani Davis bears the scars of an unhappy marriage, death of loved ones, and a troubled relationship with her mother. She's always longed to feel at home.
A visit to a long-lost aunt and a tiny town causes hope to spark, but can she deal with the lack of privacy and suspicion of outsiders? They eventually embrace her until a devastating event.
Steve Miller has lived in Miller's Creek all his life. After a romance comes to a tragic end, he manages to avoid holy matrimony.
Secrets, small-town gossip, and a community that works together form the backbone of the plot. Cathy is an excellent storyteller. My Mom read the book and informed me she wants the next one. I fully concur with her evaluation.
I'm looking forward to watching this author grow. I'll definitely purchase the next book in the Miller Creek series.
What determines whether or not you'll pick up another book by an author: excellent storytelling, perfect craft, dynamic characters?
