This story is quite the adventure and you are going to love meeting this couple and the little girl that is quite mature for her age. I know I did.
This was a new author to me but I will definately look for more of her work as I read many books. I am hoping to meet these characters again as I look for more Texas Romance books by Caryl McAdoo.
