3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite worth 4 stars. Exasperating read! September 2, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
From the reviews I've read, many readers have enjoyed this book. As they say, not everyone has the same taste, life would otherwise be boring.

Emma comes back to a small town in Texas with her two to be adopted daughters. She takes them to see a local doctor and finds that he is none other than her old boyfriend Travis. The reason they stopped dating is because she moved away with her parents who enjoyed traveling around the world, without even warning him.

Travis and Emma find that they are still very attracted to one another and while Travis is very interested in picking up where they left off, Emma keeps pulling back. That itself is what annoyed me. The poor doctor does everything he can to please this girl and she keeps pulling back from him. I am not giving anything away as you will find this very early on. It goes on and on. Emma encounters problems with the adoption and while Travis is there for her she continues to pull back. I got sick of it. While he tried to distance himself he always finds himself in that old pattern trying again and again....and again. Be done with her Travis! .... is what I thought. Anyhow while the ending was good it was so incredibly rushed that I actually turned the page and was shocked it was over.

Maybe it's because I've read several really good books just prior to this one that I'm not happy but for me, it was mediocre at best... glad I didn't spend much on this e-book. I won't give up on the author however but if her next book is written in this same pattern, I'm done.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great little story... July 7, 2009
Format:Paperback
Emma Hayes has traveled the world and done many things but her heart longs to be planted in one place and have a real family. Travis Taylor is now a doctor but he also longs for a family as memories of Emma Hayes haunt his mind.

When Emma adopts twin girls from an orphanage she takes up residence in a house her parents own in Galveston. She also remembers Travis Taylor whom she once loved but her parents whisked her away before she could carry it any further. Sure that he is no long there she settles in and makes an appointment for the girls to see a doctor. Can you imagine her surprise when Dr. Travis Taylor walks into the room to examine the girls. Emma is shocked.

They both realize that their feelings are still strong but with issues of the past and so much time in between neither are sure how to handle the situation. Throw in Travis's girlfriend, Emma's ex-fiance and a crooked judge and you have a whirlwind story...Texas style. This was an endearing story with many memorable characters.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing... August 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
First, Christian romance are not really my thing, but I got this because the synopsis of the story drew me. The plot of the story was a great idea, could have been fantastic, but it was poorly executed.

The female lead, Emma has the same emotional issues throughout the entire book until the last few pages. It is the same, she loves him (Travis) but can't be with him since she hurt him in the past and she is guilty and the whole book she is pushing him away then gets upset when he stops showing interest.

The male lead, Travis, is a softy, which isn't a bad thing, but I wanted to scream at him to find someone else and stop waiting around, especially since Emma supposedly broke his heart years ago and he didn't even gave it a second thought, just jumped right back in.

The secondary characters were not developed at all. Just enough info was given with minimal 'screen time' to barely move the story along. I couldn't connect with them at all. Then the ending was rushed and abruptly ended. Seriously, Emma and Travis finally confessed to their love and stopped pushing each other away and then it was over. I was left asking 'what happened to the rest of the story?'.

All I can say is that I happy that this was a free read, but very disappointed with the execution of the story when it could have been great. I won't be reading anything else from this author if this is her writing style.

2.0 out of 5 stars just so-so August 31, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The I love him / I cannot love him is starting to grate on my nerves. It seems to be the underlying current in most of the books I've read recently so it's getting old. The contested adoption story line was pretty far fetched, also, IMHO.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good book by Bonnie Blythe September 6, 2009
Format:Paperback
This author is becoming one of my favorites. The story is about Emma Hayes who has returned to the town she had stayed in the longest growing up with parents who traveled everywhere. She now has 2 recently adopted girls from Haiti. When she gets to town and takes them for their doctor's visit she has no idea that their doctor will be her old high school love, Travis. Once they meet its obvious they both still have feelings for each other, but Emma is a little stubborn about allowing anything more than friendship. Good job again Bonnie Blythe!

4.0 out of 5 stars Texas Whirlwind July 24, 2012
By Jean54
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just finished Texas Whirlwind. Overall, I really enjoyed reading it. The story was good and it held my attention from the start. My only disappointment is that I really wish she had been more in depth. I wanted to know more about the characters and more about their relationship. The ending was very rushed and I would have loved to see at least a chapter to wrap everything up. That said, I did really enjoy it and am definitely going to ready more by Bonnie Blythe.
