Fortunes of Texas Christmas by Helen Lacey


When I first started reading this book I thought that it seemed familiar, it was only when I was about a third of the way through that I realised why, I had read it before…

I did enjoy reading it again and with some perspective I can see that there are a lot of things that I missed the first time round.

The characters are well written, however robin seems more realistic, I struggled a bit with Amerson, he seemed a bit cut off from the story and it took time for me to accept him. I think it was linked to the fact that there are a lot of secrets that he is hiding about his family and that he is trying to protect himself

Robin is determined to embarrass Amerson, but just because he seems so perfect but also slightly arrogant. Whilst I didn’t fully agree with her tactics at the time, thinking about it, it would be something that I might just do myself, subjecting the new boyfriend to dinner with the parents etc!

There was a good split of voices which I enjoyed and which helped me with the story and keeping up with what was happening and why. This book is part of a series but can be read alone which I think really works as it gives the reader a chance to decide whose story they want to discover!

I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a romance with a feisty main character who knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to call out the hero when needed!
