I recently stumbled across this author by accident and am so glad I did. I loved all 5 of the Whispering Mountain series. But this one was special because the love story grew out of something that SHE had to teach HIM. And he did learn and lived to tell about it.

Texas Blue is the second book we read for our book club, and I did an in-depth review on the blog. Jodi Thomas has really hit it on the nail as far as appealing to women's' often suppressed desire to root for the underdog, to fanaticize about wealth, and to believe in divine intervention when it comes to romance. Ms. Thomas successfully combines all of these elements in a fast paced, exciting read that mimics a good romance movie. The characters in the book are individuals of strength and substance. None are weak or bland. Each is distinctive and determined to stay true to themselves and to follow their own path: the Texas spirit! The romantic aspect is gradually built up over the course of the novel, and is gently infused. How fortunate we are to have Jodi Thomas to entertain us! Here are some question that I answer in my in-depth review: Why is this book titled Texas Blue? What was your favorite part of the book? The name of the book's characters were Southern in nature, yet the two old cooks who were bent on protecting Anna had biblical names. Why? Did you notice the interesting dichotomy between Duncan and Lewt? Did you notice the similarities between the love interests of Duncan and Lewt?

Love this book!!! But I loved all the others too. I really enjoyed the way Em finally gave in to Lewton. He had to work for it tho. But the story was beautiful and keep you interested all the way till the end. I would recommend to anyone who enjoys Jodi's books.

Reviewed by Jen: Texas Blue is part of Jodi Thomas' Whispering Mountain series. Even though I've not read any of the other books, this one is book 5, I found myself intrigued with this little corner of Texas that Ms Thomas has carved out and the family that has settled there. The book stands alone quite well, but characters from previous book (and likely future ones) do make their appearances (or at least are well mentioned). Lewt and Emily both had scarred childhoods, and it's interesting to see how it effects them in adulthood and colors how they see the world and the opposite sex. I like how Ms Thomas really develops the friendship between the characters as the foundation of their relationship instead of just focusing on the attraction. This book made me cry numerous times. And I also found it to be a page turner when the action (involving a rescue mission to Mexico) picked up in the second half. I recommend this book and am going to be finding myself copies of earlier books in the series as my interest as been piqued.

I liked the premise of this story - of two people who are trying to escape who they are - one to find love and one to avoid love. Neither one of them were pretending to be someone else for shady purposes. I thought it was a nice switch up to have the man be the one looking for love and a family though, and the woman wanting to avoid it. Even though Lewt was a gambler, and they were looked down upon by "respectable" people, he was an honest gambler and never left anyone completely broke without an out. He genuinely cared about people. He would probably say he was determined, but other people might see him as just stubborn. The only people Emily was really close to were her family. She even kept the ranch hands at arm's length and didn't realize the extent that they watched over her. She had a secret in her past that caused her to mistrust men. Working every day with Lewt on the ranch though, she first had respect for him, and then realized she was beginning to trust him. You could really feel the passion between the two of them. I love that the author was able to convey this passion without turning the scenes x-rated. To me, it makes the love portrayed seem more pure somehow.
