Title: His Texas Forever Family
Author: Amy Woods
Genre: Home & Family Romance
Length: 216 pages
I’ve read a few romance novels in my day, but as far as I can recall this is my first Harlequin. Though I’m not a new die hard Harlequin customer, I am pretty ecstatic about this particular title… since my brother’s wife wrote it!
I’m a little more than biased and absurdly proud. It’s exciting to be a first time author, and even more exciting that her first time out the gates she’ll be hitting the shelf of every Wal-Mart in America and more. I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that I’m a little bit jealous she’s getting such amazing exposure, but I’m so happy for her – she’s earned it!
I enjoyed my brief 216 page stay in Peach Leaf, Texas. Woods had me wondering if Peach Leaf were real and when I could visit. It’s apparently one of the safest places on earth and the people are awfully nice. Everyone needs a place where the lady at the grocery store will order your favorite coffee when they discover they don’t already have it in stock. Favorite coffees are important!
The main characters, of course, are intriguing… a sexy art teacher recently divorced, a widowed and emotionally guarded assistant principal, and a kid that won’t talk sets the perfect stage for a romance about matters of hearts in need of healing. Woods is a great writer (a fantastic copyeditor too, if you’re in the market for one) and draws you into a seemingly simple plot with every carefully placed sentence and word.
This debut novel will be available September 1st, 2014. Take note, mark your calendar, set aside a few bucks for a new book! And once you’ve read it, be sure to leave a review for our favorite Harlequin author.
