A Path Less Traveled...Review

About the book:
Trish James is tired of being rescued. When a spooked horse claims her husband's life, she’s determined to blaze a path for herself and her traumatized son without outside help. But will that mean leaving the place etched on her heart?

Andy Tyler has had to struggle for everything, and starting a new law practice in Miller's Creek, Texas is no different. Though prepared for business challenges, he's not prepared for falling in love--especially with yet another woman who will probably abandon him for her career.

Will Andy and Trish be able to see past their limited human understanding to take a path less traveled?

Like the first book in the Miller's Creek series, Texas Roads, I enjoyed this story.  It's engaging and each time I set it down, I wanted to get back to it.  I liked Trish, but found myself annoyed at times with her pride and stubborn, pathological refusal to accept help from anyone.   Andy is a sweetheart and has a troubled past and I wished for more details about him.  In fact, I wished for more details about everyone.  Things are said or instances happen and then we're kind of left hanging at times, waiting for some closure, which isn't always important, but can be niggling.

This is a story about faith and finding oneself and understanding the role God not only plays in our lives, but how he directs our paths.  A thoughtful, engaging read and one I can recommend.

A Path Less Traveled is a sequel to Texas Roads, and follows Steve's sister Trish.  While the story stands alone, it is helpful to have read the first book, just for the background on the characters.  I look forward to more from the Miller's Creek series.

Thanks to First Wildcard and Cathy Bryant for the opportunity to review this book.  You can learn more about Cathy Bryant here.  You can read the first chapter here.  You can purchase your own copy here.
