Celebrate Lit Blog Stop: Texas My Texas by Caryl McAdoo

About the Book

Title: Texas my Texas  
Author: Caryl McAdoo  
Genre: Christian Historical Romance  
Release date: February 11, 2019

He who puts his trust in God will possess the land and inherit the blessings. Scripture tells a husband to love his wife, but what if she loves the memory of a dead man? Lured to the Texas frontier by more free land than they could ever buy, four families struggle to carve a home and a living out of the wilderness. And though love isn’t always easy coming, like bees to sweet flowers, a neighbor and his partner swoop in hoping to steal the hearts of the clan’s two young beauties. Will their infants spoil the ointment? Wild animals, Indians on the warpath, and living hand-to-mouth never make it easy, but my oh my—Texas my Texas! What a land!

About the Author

Caryl McAdoo prays her story brings God glory which is what she lives to do. Her award-winning, best-selling novels enjoy a lion’s share of 5-Star ratings from Christian readers around the world. With thirty-eight titles, it’s obvious she loves writing almost as much as singing the new songs the Lord gives her—listen to a few at YouTube. She and high school sweetheart Ron celebrated fifty years of marriage in June 2018; they share four children and eighteen grandsugars. The McAdoos live in the woods south of Clarksville, seat of Red River County in far Northeast Texas, waiting expectantly for God to open the next door.

Guest Post from Caryl

It’s always good to give thanks. And I’m thankful for you! I appreciate you stopping by my awesome Celebrate Lit Blog Tour! I’m thankful for each of the bloggers who signed up to participate in the tour for my January release Texas My Texas, book two in my new Cross Timbers Romance Family Saga series! And I’m so thankful the Lord is blessing Celebrate Lit as Sandy Barela blesses so many Christian authors! She is deserving of all God’s best! In Book One, Gone to Texas, I got seventeen souls to their new home in the Republic. Texas My Texas has all the same pioneers with a few new added as they establish hearth and home in the wooly, untamed Trinity River Bottoms of North Central Texas—which later in history, becomes the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. They’re settling in what now is Irving—my home for fifty-plus years. Only a few months has passed for my characters, Book One ends in November, Book Two picks up in March, 1841. In real life, it’s been just that long since Book One launched, too! It debuted in September and Book Two launching now is also four months! Isn’t that fun? Originally, I’d planned a different January title but pushed it back a couple of months to release Texas My Texas on the heels of Gone to Texas. In this new story, the two young women—Gabrielle and Isabel Harrell—elicit the attention of suiters who come calling even in the wild west territory. Thomas Baldwin (a neighbor introduced in Gone To Texas) has an eye for Gabrielle and uses many excuses to visit, including taking his friend Monroe Humble to the clan’s little settlement to meet the lovey, hardworking Isabel. But Gabrielle is pining hard for her love back home and deals with pretty severe melancholy—what they called depression back in those days. In Texas My Texas, readers will spend time with the characters they came to love in Gone To Texas. As always, I pray my story gives God glory! And that readers will enjoy the new even better than the old! BLESSINGS!

My Thoughts and Review:
Texas My Texas is book 2 of the Cross Timbers Romances Family Saga series. I have not read the first book, Gone To Texas, YET.

Texas My Texas is a Historical Fiction book, which is a genre I really like. The story line is very engaging, I almost forgot to cook dinner the day I began reading it. 😄😄  The book is about building community and settling down in a new area with several families. It also has romance and budding relationships. Caryl McAdoo has a GREAT writing style and really brings the reader to the time of history when the story takes place, which of this story is 1841.

I felt that even being the second book in the series, I was able to grab onto the story and follow along very easily. GREAT Stand Alone book. Caryl McAdoo is a "new to me author", but I am now VERY interested in reading other books by Caryl.

If you like Romance and Historical books, this is a GREAT book for you!

Kendra, thank you thank you thank you! I so appreciate you participating in my Celebrate Lit Blog Tour. ESPECIALLY with a house full of boys! This is --err, WAS MY life-- as I reared seven fellers! Three of my own (with one daughter--the hardest of them) and then before my baby boy left the nest, I got FOUR MORE! God filled our nest again with four grandsons we had for 14 years! SO I CAN understand where you are! HOW do you find time to read??? :)

Your review brought glory bumps to my arms and legs. I'm so glad you enjoyed Texas My Texas! Book three's coming in September, but I have 6 more new titles between now and then! Hope you enjoy them all as much! BLESSINGS and prayers for your patience and energy! :)
