From Amazon:
City gal Dani Davis just wants to find a place to call home. Miller's Creek, Texas, with its country charm and quirky citizens seems like the perfect place to start over. Perfect, that is, except for the cowboy who gives her a ride into town... Dani secretly finances renovations to downtown Miller's Creek, but malicious rumors force her to choose between keeping her involvement a secret and the home for which she's always longed. Then the discovery of an age-old secret propel her down a road she never expected to travel. Steve Miller is determined to save his dying hometown. When vandalism jeopardizes the Miller's Creek restoration project, he can't help but suspect Dani, whose strange behavior has become fodder for local gossips. Will Steve and Dani be able to call a truce for a higher cause, and in the process help Dani understand the true meaning of home?

My Review:
For a debut novel Texas Roads is an absolute gem! I really loved every bit of it from the crazy hairdresser to the hunky rancher/mayor Steve, and even the "old geezers." Cathy Bryant sure knows Texas and small town life. I myself am a small town girl so I know what small town livin' is and I KNOW that there are no secrets to be kept when everybody knows everybody! I certainly know about grumpy ol' curmudgeons too...but don't ask, LOL read the story and you will see what I'm talking about!

As for the romance of the story...I really enjoyed it too. I was a liiiiiittle frustrated with Steve and Dani and was shouting, "Come on people. You like each other. Admit it already!!!!" but that just makes it all the more sweeter when they do finally see the light, right? The only tiny issue that I had was that some of the chapters didn't seem to flow together as well as I would have liked but that's just about the only thing. I'm just nitpicking I guess! It's terrific otherwise and I CANNOT wait for the next book tentatively titled, A Path Too Narrow, although from the teaser at the back of the book I can already tell it's going to be a tearjerker!
