I loved this book! Alan Hutcheson is a very talented writer. I am amazed at how he set the stage for this story. Each chapter of the book details the events of different characters that in the beginnning seem unrelated. However, as the story unfolds, each character or set of characters are drawn from places as far away as Australia to a little house in Arizona. Once each party involved in this tale find their way to a dark, soggy Arizona backyard in their pursuit of a handcrafted boomerang, the conclusion of their quest is delightful, entertaining, and satisfying . The characters are funny - some are wonderfully likeable, and some you just like to hate. I plan to read this book again sometime soon!
This is book two in the Three Cross series of books. I had just finished reading "A Heapin' Helping of Three Cross Faith" (book one) and couldn't wait to continue the story of Austin and Nikki. Austin and Nikki are secondary characters in this book, and we are introduced to Jaime, the main character. At first I wasn't sure I was even going to like Jaime, but as the book progressed, the character was nicely developed and I found myself really caring about her. Ms. Grace tackled some serious issues in Touching the Love of a Texas Sunset and I thought that it was a little more meaty than the first book (which I loved, btw!). The reader follows newcomer Jaime as she meets and falls in love with Three Cross band member Mac. However, Jaime discovers a more important relationship as she meets and falls in love with Jesus. We follow Jaime as she struggles with the demons in her past and demonstrates that even a babe in Christ can make a difference for His Kingdom. I appreciated that we even get a little glimpse into Mac's struggles in his Christian life and find that while he loves the Lord with all of his heart, he is human and has experienced a few valleys in his Christian walk. I have it on good authority that there will be more books in the Three Cross series, and I can't wait for the next one!
I really enjoyed this book. If you like romance novels with a wholesome storyline, you will want to read A Heapin' Helping of Three Cross Faith. It is a quick, easy read that you won't want to put down - I found myself reading into the wee hours of the morning. This is the first Three Coss Faith book, and I am glad there is a second one so I can read it right away!
