Tuesday Teaser & Intro: On Lone Star Trail


I really enjoyed this one. It was set in the Hill Country of Central Texas, so right in my backyard. I enjoyed the cast of characters very much, although I think the entire notion of the resort being entirely Biblical-themed was a little far-fetched.


Synopsis ~ On Lone Star Trail

If there’s one thing Gillian Hodge never wants to see again, it’s a man on a motorcycle. Her last encounter with one left her right hand crushed, ending her promising career as a concert pianist. But as she heads to Rainbow’s End Resort, a sudden thunderstorm causes a motorcycle to crash in front of her.

When TJ Benjamin’s wife died, he lost more than his best friend; he lost his faith. He’s spent the past year wandering the country on a motorcycle, trying not to think about his future. When he finds himself stranded with a busted bike and a reluctant rescuer, he has to wonder about God’s sense of humor.

Can this woman without a future and this man running from his past find romance in the present? Or are they too tied to the way life used to be?


Chapter 1

Relax. Gillian Hodge forced her fingers to stop gripping the steering wheel as if it were a lifeline. This wasn’t her Carnegie Hall debut or the finals of the Brooks competition when so much was riding on the outcome. This was a vacation, for Pete’s sake. A week with her best friend and the woman who’d been a surrogate grandmother. She should be filled with anticipation, counting the minutes until she arrived, not wound as tightly as a metronome.



There was a definite irony in a man who used to be called the RV Reverand being stranded at a Christian resort within walking distance of two dozen RVs.  [Loc 394]


“Are you always this devious?”

“I prefer the word crafty.”  [Loc 1524]
