A Reader's Opinion
The Texas landscape comes alive in Sunrise Crossing by talented author Jodi Thomas. Every bit as colorful and vivid as the paintings in the book, the wildflowers and sunrise hues jump off the page like magic. The author gave us a lot of characters to get to know in one book, and offered up multiple storylines that neatly came together as the story moved along. While I enjoyed the individual stories, Parker Lacey and Clint Montgomery stole the show for me.
Crossroads, Texas is a place where wounded hearts and battered souls can come to heal and start anew and that's what happens here. Yancy and Tori are two unlikely hearts that find each other by chance but end up finding their peace. Gabe's story turned out a lot different than I expected and I like surprises. The end felt very rushed, but Parker and Clint's tender romance, with her fears and his gentle heart, made for a touching and melt-into-each other kind of love story.
Return to peaceful Crossroads, Texas, where community comes first and love thrives in the unlikeliest places…
Yancy Grey is slowly putting his life back together after serving time for petty theft. As he rebuilds an old house, he finally has a sense of stability, but he can't stop thinking of himself as just an ex-con. Until one night, he finds a mysterious dark-haired beauty hiding in his loft. But who is she, and what secret is she protecting?
The art gallery Parker Lacey manages is her life—she has no time for friends, and certainly not lovers. But when her star artist begs Parker for help, she finds herself in a pickup truck, headed for the sleepy town of Crossroads. A truck driven by a strong, silent cowboy…
Gabe Snow has been a drifter since he left Crossroads at seventeen after a violent incident. When he accepts a job in his hometown, he'll have to decide whether he can put the worst night of his life behind him and build a future in the community that raised him.
