The Texas Lawman’s Woman (2013)

The Texas Lawman’s Woman is the first novel in McCabe Homecoming series written by American bestselling author Cathy Gillen. Shelley Meyerson is yet to forgive Colt McCabe for what he did during the prom night despite his explanation why he did not show up during that night. The duo had planned something special together with their friends.

Not only did McCabe stand her up but also arrived late, dressed poorly and did not even bother calling her before standing her up. So after their graduation, Shelley moved on and married another man and went on to live the life of adventure. She ended up pregnant and even realized that the life of adventure would never be suitable for her and most for her baby.

So she decides to go back home so that she can give her child a better childhood and also be a responsible mother.

On the other hand, Colt McCabe now works as the town deputy sheriff, and he is somehow ‘too nice.’ He does not give people warnings or tickets, all that he wants is to help them and give them second chances. He ends up a meeting with Shelley and once again wants to help her and probably be her white knight. However, Shelley independence is one thing that will not allow them to be so close to each other that easily.

The fact that they are going to be best man and maid of honor at their friend’s wedding ceremony will not help Shelley keep a distance from a man who stood her up. Furthermore, since their friend away, it is upon Shelley and Cold to coordinate together and ensure that everything is in order. However, when Shelley gets evicted from her house things will become more complicated for these two former lovers.

Shelley and Cold soon find themselves stuck in between making decision guided by the lessons of their past.

The debut novel in this series is a great read. Shelley is a good character; she may be a mother but still stuck in her dream world. She hopes that everything would work her way without having to take any responsibilities for her actions. One can evidently see that she never grew up beyond the prom and acted and judged as if she was in high school.

On the other hand, Colt is a sweet, handsome character. He is often viewed as a too nice fellow who would rather give second chances instead of warnings or tickets something that can cause him trouble in his career. His actions of second chances and politeness made people view him as someone who would cover mistakes.

The Texas Lawman’s Woman is a good read featuring two characters that need to grow up so that their love could develop into something into something big.

The Long Hot Texas Summer (2013)

Justin is creating up a ranch for troubled teenagers. He is performing very well except that the carpentry work is giving him a headache. So he hires a professional carpenter to help, and he is flabbergasted when the carpenter turns out to be a tall, gorgeous woman. He is immediately attracted to the lady but sets the priority first and needs the run-up and running quickly. When they are both requested to take charge of teen’s community service, he notices that the lady makes a quick connection with the trouble kids.

Justin gave up his promising job to start a ranch. Apparently his first attempt to help other teens did not turn out so well, so he decided to give it a final shot. Amanda’s arrival surprises since he never thought such a beautiful woman would perform so well. He is attracted to her but has to do the job first. Lamar arrival gives Justin a chance to begin his job with the teens but later finds himself having trouble with him. Amanda immediately connects with Lamar, something that makes Justin realize that Amanda is an excellent resource.

What you will love most about Justin is his appreciative nature. He does not mind when the lady performs the carpenters work, though at times he is jealous that Amanda’s connects with Lamar while he cannot. His feelings for Amanda rapidly developed but had patience and did not push so much for her to reciprocate.

On the other hand, Amanda seems a happy woman despite having a challenging childhood were her parents divorced in pursuit of their happiness. She spent the greater extent of her childhood with her grandparents who instilled discipline and love to her. Her engagement with her man did not last long due to the problems she faced from his fiancé’s wealthy family. This caused her to develop some issues, especially when getting along with wealthy families and men. Even though she develops feelings for Justin, she is afraid of ending up being heartbroken, and thus she maintains her distance. However, she is surprised when her dark past does not bother him and soon starts believing that relationship with him would be possible.

Lastly, Lamar was a great secondary character. His actions and attitude are what showcased what the whole idea of the ranch was all about. He showed weaknesses and strengths of both Amanda and Justin.

Overall, The Long Hot Texas Summer is a fantastic read from Cathy Gillen Thacker. The author uniquely showcases romance in the most unanticipated manner that will keep you longing for more and more romance. If you love romance novels, it is recommended you read Cathy Gillen Thacker books.
