Enter Handsome Neighbor Carter Cooper Fixing Houses Is Carter S Job, But It Turns Into Than Business When Audra Allows Him To Help Her Rebuild Her Home Carter S Soon Falling For The Sweet Mom And Her Delightful Kids But Carter S Always Been Hesitant Of Opening His Heart To Love As The Cautious Duo Work Together To Transform Her Home, Will They Also Find A Love To Last A Lifetime can t wait for next one Even though I knew it was a romance book and that Audra and Cooper would get together in the end, I still liked the story and I didn t see as many of the cliche plot points that dominate this genre Yes, both Audra and Cooper were a bit gun shy about long term romantic relationships, but the author gave them both good reasons to be in their backstories and she didn t belabor the point during the story I m not sure that in most contemporary towns someone like Cooper and his brothers would offer Even though I knew it was a romance book and that Audra and Cooper would get together in the end, I still liked the story and I didn t see as many of the cliche plot points that dominate this genre Yes, both Audra and Cooper were a bit gun shy about long term romantic relationships, but the author gave them both good reasons to be in their backstories and she didn t belabor the point during the story I m not sure that in most contemporary towns someone like Cooper and his brothers would offer to help someone with household repairs at such a discount It just doesn t seem the way any longer, and that s a bit sad to me But it was sweet that they did And of course, there s the built in sequels for both Cooper s brothers whom I m sure will eventually be finding loves of their own I do wonder if Logan s will be the Holly that was mentioned in this book Even though she supposedly moved to San Francisco but in the romance world, people are always moving back to their hometowns so it s not out of the question Enjoyed the humor in this story Romance books that veer heavily on the religious side can make for difficult readings if you re an atheist especially if you re an atheist who s actually read the Bible Anyone who peruses the so called Good Book will find tales of polygamy, incest, prostitution, gang rape, stonings, child abuse, et al., and all at the behest of a God who s angry, manipulative, controlling, murderous, vain, domineering, vengeful and proud of it.So it s irritating to read about people who have come through truly Romance books that veer heavily on the religious side can make for difficult readings if you re an atheist especially if you re an atheist who s actually read the Bible Anyone who peruses the so called Good Book will find tales of polygamy, incest, prostitution, gang rape, stonings, child abuse, et al., and all at the behest of a God who s angry, manipulative, controlling, murderous, vain, domineering, vengeful and proud of it.So it s irritating to read about people who have come through truly horrific times that destroy human life and actually praise God for their survival The people in this book don t credit God for a F4 twister that kills people and leaves a child crippled for life The divorc e doesn t find God responsible for saddling her with a Christian husband who abandons her and his two children to re marry a younger woman No, Audra Marshall blames herself for walking away from a drunken, indifferent husband and ignoring her marriage vows and thanks God for sending a man who saved her from falling off a roof.So we get a story that s liberally sprinkled with people thanking the Lord for the good luck that s randomly fallen into their laps and absolving themselves of human agency No one is responsible for being good in such a mindset only the Lord gets the credit.Of course, in such a novel there is no hanky panky before sex Given that the Bible is filled with the aforementioned sexual shenanigans, it s a wonder that anyone associates its teachings with chastity and sexual abstinence But in a romantic novel where people are always bringing up the Lord internally and externally talking to the Lord when you re alone apparently isn t seen as weird , sex is off the table You can have sexual feelings but they re alluded to in such a vague way you might as well be reading a child s story of Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail.Audra and her Lone Ranger rescuer settle in to play house she is a great cook and he s handy with tools Having stepped into traditional old fashioned niches, there s really nothing to add here Happily ever after is achieved Praise the Lord I received this book from a different friend than the one who s given me so many of the Love Inspired books in the past.I liked the opening, with the Lone Ranger references I know that s a little dorky, but that s the sort of references the kids have made in this family, too, and I could just see that happening.In fact, I thoroughly enjoyed the funny statements and antics of the kids I felt like Kat Brookes did well portraying children realistically I had to chuckle aloud at some of them I c I received this book from a different friend than the one who s given me so many of the Love Inspired books in the

fact, I thoroughly enjoyed the funny statements and antics of the kids I felt like Kat Brookes did well portraying children realistically I had to chuckle aloud at some of them I could picture kids saying those things in their own kind of kid logic The plot line meandered along, partly wish fulfillment literature, but much of the romance genre is And some of it was predictable, but well done But few men realize that one way to a woman s heart is with a puppy Especially one that fills her children with such tremendous joy I found that an interesting comment because I recently read the Love Inspired Small Town Nanny, by Lee McClain where the couple also bonded over a dog and a child But to me, the plots were too similar on this point It made me wonder if that s a common romance plot devise.Every now and then something was said that bordered on being sexist, but it wasn t dwelt on.Nitpick Lizzie s mother said, The good Lord never gives usthan we can handle That s actually a common misquote of Paul in 1 Corinthians 10 13, only speaking of temptation In fact, Paul later wrote We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired even of life to make us rely not on ourselves but on God Who raises the dead 2 Corinthians 1 8 9 To me the difference is significant because it validates the suffering of those who have felt they have hadthan they could endure and people do die every day.Here s an article about why God sometimes gives usthan we can handle one s a caution If I were a single mom, I would bewary of a man, even a Christian man, taking such an interest in my children Too many tragic, inappropriate things happen in real life Real, genuine, child friendly men do exist, I m married to one , but that caution and goingslowly are advised.One of my friends would comment that although the characters in this book are Christian, they don t really state much about what they believe about God So they could be anything from Jews except they did attend church to Deists those who believe in God the Father, but not in Jesus divinity to Christians.All in all, the book was thoroughly enjoyable, and much better than most of the romances I ve read In fact, the writing was so well done that I wondered why Kat Brookes was writing for Love Inspired I think she could ve gone with a different, better publisher.Favorite quotes So, you re giving her a used door as a housewarming gift Are you passing judgement on someone you ve never met Darlin , I m a man We need answers plain and simply put We re not real good at trying to read between the lines Finally a romance novel that commends straight forward communication instead of mind reading, just knowing things, or just understanding them No one, not you, not I, not our wondrous Lord above, can help a sinner if he or she refuses to be helped I liked this quote because it s a reminder that I can only do so much, and that it s not really me that changes hearts It is God Jesus did die for us before we even knew that we needed Him before we were even born And He does move in hearts to draw us closer to Him, so He has done and will do muchthan we can ever do for those who are refusing He brought Saul to faith, who was a persecutor of the church, not open minded about Jesus at all, and who was intent on murdering Christians God brought Saul to a sudden, startling belief during a dramatic Damascus Road experience Acts 9 1 7 Every time one of us believes, it is nothing short of one of God s miracles in us, so don t underestimate His power to work within us But, yes, there are still people who refuse God s help, too Obviously, not everyone turns to Jesus I know Momma raised us to share, but that s not happening in this case You re gonna have to go find your own women to propose to Carter Cooper is certainly my hero One of the things any romance reader wants from a male lead character is that he treat the heroine right Carter fulfilled all my expectations I was privileged to have an advance copy of Her Texas Hero by Kat Brookes, and blew through it in two days, turning pages faster and faster, immersing myself in the story of Audra and Cooper The book

cutest meet I ve ever read, between Audra dangling from the edge of the porch roof and Carter s adorably clueless question What are you doing up there anyway Audra and Carter, predictably, have problems with commitment, but their situations are realistic, and any reader can understand and sympathize with them Their faith comes across as natural and heartfelt, which doesn t happen in every inspirational romance.I loved worrying along with Audra when her tumbledown house starts to tumble down around her ears, and I loved it evenwhen Carter stepped in to help The pie contest was not only familiar and nostalgic, it served as a perfect backdrop for Audra s evolving feelings about Carter.I m giving this book five stars because from beginning to end, Her Texas Hero satisfied all my criteria likeable characters, believable plot, easy humor, just the right amount of tension, and a perfect resolution Best of all Between Carter s extended family and Audra s new friends, I have hope for many sequels from Kat Brookes This author has a great future if all her books are this well written Her children are realistic and adorable while being realistic Any mother can identify with them
