Then the discovery of an age-old secret propel her down a road she never expected to travel. Steve Miller is determined to save his dying hometown. When vandalism jeopardizes the Miller’s Creek 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 in the process help Dani understand the true meaning of home?

My thoughts:

Texas Roads is an endearing and sweet novel.  I love all the characters (hmm except for a couple).  I even grew to like some of the less endearing characters.  This is everything you expect out of a Christian fiction novel about somebody searching for God and peace and also finding love along the way.  These type of novels make my heart sing so to speak.  I see all the characters growing and changing but it is in the right direction; you see their hearts softening over the long run.  There were some hiccups along the way which provided good story lines, and I really felt bad for Dani at times.  She has a heart of gold but people like that are sometimes taken advantage of in real life and in books.  I was surprised by some things in the end of the book but it was a good surprise.  I enjoyed every page of this book and am eagerly anticipating more Miller’s Creek novels.  I love the town.  Cathy Bryant did a fabulous job of painting the town in words and showing off it’s charm.  I now feel like I have been there and have pride in the town.
