This book is book #1 in the Calamity Valley Series. It is the story of Molly and Saul. Molly had tried leaving her hometown in Calamity Valley six years ago. She was seeking adventure. Now she is back in Hopeless to get over a string of disappointments and her failed engagement. Saul had a personal discovery which caused him to walk away from his home and family. He has arrived in Texas to lie low and let the complications calm down. He gets to Hopeless, and gets the feeling he has been brought there by unknown forces. Wondering if he should just turn around and walk back out, Saul is instantly drawn to the "sparky" Molly. As soon as Molly sees Saul, she is trembling. She has never seen a more powerfully attractive male. Saul agrees to stay and build the roof on Molly's hacienda. The attraction between the two is instant, and the both work hard to keep it at bay. As they start to know each other more, the feelings start to build on their own. What is Molly not telling him about the "crazy Mackillop women"? What is Saul keeping to himself about his family and the seemingly "just as crazy but different" Sally Opal? I am excited to read the rest of the series since this first book was so good. I enjoyed the build up of attraction between Molly & Saul and how everything with them turned out. I also enjoyed Molly's Mom, Marie, and her Grandmother, Alice.

This is a delightful story of Calamity Valley and some of the notorious people who live there. The Mackillop family have, for generations, apparently been cursed - the family members are all female and none have married, though all the older generations each have a daughter. Mind you, when you realise the towns in the Valley are Hopeless, Surrender and Reckless, you might guess this isn’t going to be a straight forward contemporary romance! In this first book in the series, we are introduced to Molly Mackillop, who left her home in Hopeless some six years ago. She’s a skilled photographer and has returned home after discovering her fiancé not only cheated on her but also stole from her! Now she’s back with plans to restore her hacienda but needs help as it is currently roofless. Cue her Grandmother, Alice (aka Crazy Alice), foretelling Molly that someone is coming to help her.… and her Grandmother, like many of the older generations of this family, definitely has psychic abilities though she is apt to give hints and clues rather than great details, which can be frustrating for Molly at times. The man that Alice spoke about is Saul Solomon, originally from Colorado but more recently working in Texas as a Ranger after a heartbreaking revelation split him from his family. Now he’s facing further complications after rescuing a damsel in distress who is now fixated on him marrying her! He’s sold up and left all that behind him - or so he hopes! When he reaches Hopeless he’s not sure if he should stay or go but something is certainly influencing him and his decisions - is it fate, fantasy or a crazy lady? This is a fun read where psychic abilities, community spirit, a meddling mother and grandmother together with the GGs all have important roles to play in this potential romance - you’ll need to read it yourself to discover more about the GGs! There are times when it will have you laughing out loud and even more times you’ll be grinning as you read this enjoyable story. I hadn’t read anything by this author before but I’ll certainly look out for more by her in future - and for more books in this series! I requested and was given a copy of this novel, via NetGalley, with no obligation. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.

This is a thoroughly entertaining book. It wasn't at all what I expected from the cover and the blurb but entertaining nonetheless. Saul and Molly are two lost souls who find each other in Calamity valley. While neither is looking for a relationship, they may well be exactly what the other needs to heal. This story has a very slight paranormal element with strange occurrences happening throughout. Spirits, family secrets, and desperate times all come together to make this a fun read. I would definitely recommend this one and I'm looking forward to the next book in this series.

Lone Star Hero by Jennie Jones Six years ago Molly Mackillop left her hometown of Hopeless in Calamity Valley, Texas to seek out adventure. Now she’s back to lick her wounds after a string of humiliations and a failed engagement. Saul Solomon arrived in Texas after a heartbreaking discovery made him walk away from his hometown. Now, all he wants is to lie low until the complications in his life die down. Guided into Hopeless by forces unknown, Saul wonders if he should walk right out again. But the trouble with trouble, is that there’s always more on the way… this is Molly Mackillop and Saul Solomon 's story. Molly Mackillop stared into the flames of the pit fire as the sun rose before her, suffusing Calamity Valley in orangey hues. Another fall daybreak that filled her with comfort, until her grandmother spat on the flames and they roared. “Fire parted,” Alice said. “Man coming.” Molly curled her hands around her first mug of coffee for the day and shot a look at the woman most people called Crazy Alice. This was the problem a modern, down-to-earth woman had when she was a descendent of mystics, oracles, and soothsayers. No day started or ended as anticipated. Saul Solomon figured he was one of those guys with a pretty laid-back attitude unless riled. But one thing he couldn’t take was a liar. He rubbed his unshaven jaw, lifted himself from the sleeping bag to sit with his elbows on his knees. Why the hell had he woken up thinking about the lies? That time was long gone. He was long gone. From the reasons and the source. He swung his gaze around the southwest backcountry area of Palo Duro Canyon. The day had a Dear John look to it—downcast and unexpected. Although that would change in about thirty minutes. The sun would rise and cover the desert canyon with its warmth. It was easy to forget what was going on in the world when he was in the canyon. It filled a person with a sense of spiritual solitude. Maybe that was what he’d needed. Lone Star Hero by Jennie Jones is a wonderful well written 4 star book. I highly recommend reading. I am looking forward to reading more books by Jennie Jones. "I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book." Lone Star Hero by Jennie Jones Jennie's Books with Tule: Lone Star Hero
