Molly Hansen doesn't particularly care for her home in Moonglow, Texas but when the U.S. Marshals' office sends over a handyman to work on her place, she figures it's not her place to argue. The house and the identity were given to Molly about a year ago when she entered the Witness Protection Program after witnessing a terrorist act. There is nothing about her new life Molly finds appealing and little she enjoys about Moonglow until the handyman from hell enters her life.
When Dan Shackelford left Moonglow twenty years ago, he never expected to come back much less return posing as an itinerant handyman. He might not know much about home improvement but figures he can play his unexpected assignment by ear. Still suffering from the tragic fallout of his last assignment, Dan is less sure of his skills as a Deputy Marshal than as a handyman. When WITSEC is compromised by hackers, however, he accepts the low-priority case of protecting Hansen knowing it is his last chance to prove himself capable of his professional duties. He never suspects that his charge will give him new hope both professionally and personally.
Mary McBride has written a story that is nearly flawless both in style and characterization. The irony is that part of the charm of this book stems from the imperfections of the hero. Dan Shackelford is both amusing and admirable in his role as a reluctant hero. His desire to go through life in a drunken haze only increases when he returns to Moonglow, the town where everyone literally knows his name and his reputation for trouble precedes him. He finds his depression lifting every now and again as he comes to befriend and eventually love Molly Hansen whose unflagging faith in him stuns and shames him out of his self-imposed misery.

A chance viewing of a pale, white-haired terrorist and she finds herself whisked away to Moonglow, Texas complete with the new identity of Molly Hansen. She leaves behind her job, her fiancé, and her identity to protect her life -- a life she's come to intensely dislike until Dan Shackelford shows up to repair her government provided house. But Molly's no dummy, and it doesn't take long to figure out that Dan's no repairman even if he is a fabulous kisser. And his presence makes Moonglow and her new identity a pleasure. As women line up to welcome Dan back to Moonglow, however, Molly takes great pleasure in keeping him to herself and finds her new identity isn't so bad as long as Dan hangs around.
With his disreputable appearance, Dan Shackelford doesn't look like a deputy U.S. marshal. Bitter, dissolution, and drinking too much, Dan's on extended medical leave after he failed to protect his partner from a hitman. But when someone breaches the security of the witness protection program's database, Dan finds himself called back into service and returning to his hometown to protect Molly, even if word has it that all the members of the terrorist group that destroyed her life are now dead. As threatening phone calls begin to belie the assurance of no danger, however, Dan finds his skills not just as handyman, which are seriously lacking, but his reputation as well as the sheriff still treats him like poor white trash and women wish to rekindle the past.
Author Mary McBride creates a first rate romance with characters the reader can't help but care about in MOONGLOW, TEXAS. Despite the serious setting of the witness protection program, this lighthearted romance will but the glow on a sultry summer night. As Dan heals the scars of the past, and Molly faces the challenges of her present, watching them create a future together is pure pleasure. Amusing, entertaining, and heated, MOONGLOW, TEXAS comes highly recommended.

"Moonglow, Texas" is a thoroughly enjoyable romp in which the characters' warmth can't help but be infectious. The writing style is outstanding and the strongly likeable Dan and Molly are two people who instantly draw the reader into their story. This is the second Mary Mcbride novel I've read ("Still Mr. and Mrs." is terrific as well). Molly (an alias forced upon her because of the Witness Protection Program) is spending her days hiding from terrorists in a forlorn Texas town where she encounters a scruffy but hunky handyman who (like Home Improvement's Tim) keeps destroying more than he can fix. Sensually attractive to Molly, but unbeknownst to her, Dan has a secret identity as a government agent hired to protect her. His past is fraught with pain and heroism, and the reader can't help falling for him as well. Other characters in the story are fully developed - and serve to bring Molly and Dan together. The novel has plenty of intrigue as well as intense, molten romance, and a silver thread of stylish humor runs through the entire book. We need more of Mcbride's delightful novels!
