    Review:

    "A Texas Legacy Christmas" by Diann Mills was a wonderful Christian Christmas story and the fourth in this series that will keep you turning the pages until the end. We find Zack Kahler is returning to his hometown of Kahlerville, Texas to work at his local newspaper. However, he never knew that from a slip on ice would land him with two six year old twins. As the story goes Zack wallet is stolen and this is where this story really takes off. All I will say is that you will have to pick up "A Texas Legacy Christmas" to see how this author brings it out to the readers. It was a charming and exciting read. There will be some twist and turns with a bit of mystery only that helps bring the wonderful read of interest to the reader. I found all of the characters very appealing especially the hero and the heroine of this story and all in all a wonderful Christian story of family and love. We find this single man adopting twins...moving back to his hometown, meets a school friend Chloe...only leaving you to say wow that was some read. Again, you must pick this novel to see how everything will turn out because there may be a surprise at the end.

    If you are looking for a good Christian romance you have come to the right place for "A Texas Legacy Christmas" will give it all to you and more. Would I recommend? YES!

    A reviewer

    Zack Kahler, a newspaper man at the NY Times and new owner of the Kahlerville newspaper, plans to move back home to Texas to run his new business. Before returning home, he is the victim of a couple of six-year-old pickpockets. The twins steal more than his wallet. They steal his heart. Chloe Weaver, thin and trembling from hunger, finds work in a boardinghouse keeping the books and helping the cook. Things are getting better as she settles into her job and her room at the boardinghouse. But God¿s not through blessing her. When she sees Zack and the twins, she remembers how Zack treated her years ago when they were both Miss Scott¿s students. He remembers her too. He likes how the little girl has grown up in all her beauty and likes how she responds to the twins. Chloe wonders if Zack loves her. Maybe she should accept her boss as her beau. At least her boss has been clear about his interest. Zack must keep his distance from her or she¿ll lose her job. But how can he keep his distance when her boss is competing for her attention? DiAnn Mills ends the Texas Legacy Series with a Christmas miracle. I enjoyed seeing the whole family back together. The twins¿ wide-eyed wonder of their new surroundings was an appealing view of the city kids¿ visit to a ranch. Delightful!
