    To Catch a Texas Star

    I have been following with this series. Linda gives her readers from deep, dark books! I think this is an adult read for most of your reading. Roan Penny comes a lot to Mose. Then masked riders shoot up and murder Mose. Roan is dragged until he is almost dead. Here is where Marley Rose finds Roan on the road. She is like her Mom, Jessie, and brings him out. From here out , this is a dark read. This reads at 1899 for the turn of the New Year! Roan Penny, as he said, is going to avenge his murdered friend. Towns are afraid of Sheriff's. Marley Rose wants him to stay with her. There are boys stealing others herds of cattle. I like this book but I needed tissues in some spots! I would like you to choose this read! Don't let this ride away! Give it a chance!

    Another great book by Linda Broday!

    "Maybe her need to fix this stranger was because she had been the one to find him, and that made this connection so strong. All Marley knew was that she had to be the one to care for him." I absolutely love historical western romances, and have read many of them over the years. I became a fan of Linda Broday's writing and story-telling after reading the first two books in the Texas Heroes series. So I didn't hesitate when I had the opportunity to read To Catch a Texas Star. This book focuses on Marley Rose, who was introduced in Knight on the Texas Plains as the baby that was won by Duel in a poker game. I loved her in that book, so I was really excited when I found out that this book was about her. She was raised by amazing parents (Duel and Jessie), and I was glad that they played an important role in this book as well. It was great to be reunited with them, and see what they had been up to. "You're like those shooting stars we watched. You blaze across a man's life with such a streak of color and pageantry it steals his breath. You're my Texas star, Marley Rose McClain." The other main character is Roan Penny. I loved him from the start and knew he would be a great hero. I enjoyed seeing the connection between him and Marley develop. It was beautiful seeing how these two got along, and how they inspired each other. This book was so much more than just a romance. It was fun, suspenseful, emotional and action-packed. There was even a bit of mystery the characters were trying to figure out. Everything came together perfectly and I think this book was a great way to conclude this awesome series. This book is longer than what I usually read, but it didn't feel long at all. The author used every page resourcefully and made sure that the reader was engaged and hooked until the end.

    Great Historic Romance

    I adore Marley and her spirit. She’s feisty and independent, both great qualities in a heroine. As Marley tells her father, Duel: “I’ll be fine,” Marley assured him. “I’m not some spineless little girl who wrings her hands and waits for someone to ride to her rescue.” Bonus point for self-rescuing princesses! I also appreciate that Ms. Brody writes Marley as a storyteller and artist. Marley creates stories for all the children. She also attempts to illustrate her stories with paintings and drawings. Her ability to take a small idea and make it into an full story is amazing. I’m guessing it’s a similar process that Ms. Brody goes through when writing her novels. Roan had a rough childhood and not much better luck as an adult. But what really impresses me is that, despite all his hardship, he’s capable of loving, protecting, and supporting Marley. I also really admire the connection Roan has with the adopted kids on the ranch, especially Matt. Roan sees himself in Matt and shows his true character when he’s around the children. The romance between Marley and Roan is believable, if a bit rushed. I welcomed how they support and encourage each other. For example, Roan encourages Marley to submit her stories to a publisher. And when none of the ranch hands are available to support Roan during his horse race in the next county, Marley is there for him. These two characters really bring out the best in each other. My favorite secondary character in To Catch a Texas Star is definitely Granny Jack. She’s a hoot. And I’m totally making her catch phrase my own! “Honey, every tub has got to sit on its own bottom.” That makes me laugh each time I think about it. Classic Granny Jack! I also really enjoyed catching up with Duel and Jessie from Knight on the Texas Plains. For me, it’s always great to see a couple I fell in love with still happily in love after close to twenty years together. The romance in To Catch a Texas Star may have caught my initial attention, but the mystery plot kept me reading. Ms. Brody does a fabulous job weaving together separate plot lines of discovering who is trying to destroy the Aces ‘n’ Eights Ranch by wrangling cattle with the mystery of who killed Roan’s friend Mose and left Roan for dead. There were a few twists and turns that I didn’t see coming in the road. Kudos to Ms. Broday for seamlessly blending the plot! Overall, To Catch a Texas Star is a great historic romance with strong, well-developed characters. Highly recommended! 4 1/2 Stars!
