Description:

Just a detour…

Or the home she needs?

Lauren Longwood’s freewheeling existence has hit a bump—in more ways than one. Pregnant by her ex, she retreats to Texas and meets charismatic Alex Reyes, as tied to the land as Lauren is to the road. Once, all he wanted was to save his ancestral ranch. Now he wants to offer Lauren the steadfast love that’s eluded her, if she’ll trust him enough to stay.

My Thoughts:

Hill Country Secret is a lovely tale that brings together some really likeable characters, a great setting and some fantastic descriptive writing. You wouldn’t expect it, well I certainly didn’t, but I learned quite a lot about Texan historical reenactments through this book. So much so in fact that I ended up researching various aspects of costumes, crafts, as well as the general history that was mentioned in the plot. I love a book that can spark the curiosity in me.

But back to the story of Lauren and Alex …
In these characters we find people who have been hurt by trauma, we see through their eyes and are given a chance to understand some of their actions. By doing this, Kit Hawthorne makes her characters come alive for readers, she makes you want to know what will happen to them and how they will get past this moment in time that is a barrier to happiness.
The Texan backdrop is vivid and dare I say it, charming. I loved reading about the ranch, Lauren’s friends and the restoration of the bunkhouse. With such rich details about fixtures and fittings I could almost envision the various aspects that Hawthorne wrote about, granted some things I did Google, but I loved the detail and time that was taken to craft such a great narrative.

If you are looking for a heart-warming and enjoyable romance tale, then this is definitely recommended. There are highs, lows, good guys and bad buys. There is a gentle warmth that comes with this tale, and it makes it the perfect book to curl up with.
