It is in searching for the real killer that Austin runs across Loree. She, too, has not had an easy life. Her family was killed by someone a few years back and she's very scarred from the incident.
Both of these characters are well-written. Heath does a good job of developing their pasts, their motivations, and their actions. Austin's journey to finding the music is very poignant. I enjoyed reading about a character was was really trying to find *himself* - his place in life, and a way to express himself. This is the best part of the book, and sets it apart from its predecessors in the series, because both of Austin's older brothers knew what they were doing in life, and finding love was just something extra. Austin finds love and himself along the way.
The only thing missing from this book was that added layer that I know Heath can add (she did an excellent job of it in Texas Destiny, and later in Never Love a Cowboy). The conclusion of Texas Splendor seemed a bit pat. I would have liked a little more exploration of Austin and Loree's burgeoning trust. But, as I've said before, a good Heath is a great anything else. So all in all, Texas Splendor is a success and I highly recommend it.
Anyway, Austin serves his time and comes home only to find out the fickle Becky has married his best friend. (That's gotta sting.) Reeling from this betrayal and belatedly concerned with clearing his name, Austin heads for Austin (the town) to search for the real killer...and is successful in a way that is utterly absurd. (I knew early on how that mystery would turn out, but hoped I was wrong; when it was revealed as I'd predicted, I groaned out loud at the sheer ridiculousness of it.)
On the way to Austin, Austin meets Loree, a solitary girl with a tormented soul to match his own. One thing leads to another, they end up 'having to' marry, and only afterwards do they learn how to trust and love each other. That part of the story is unexceptional (except for the aforementioned ridiculousness) and kind of slogging. The epilogue, in which Austin picks up his violin for the first time in six years and is a musical prodigy all of a sudden, challenges credulity, but that's a minor quibble compared to the other baloney the plot requires you to swallow.
In the end, the series is pretty great, but this is a silly way to end it.

Out of all the Texas trilogy this was my least favor. I found myself falling asleep reading it and forced
Myself to read 75% of it. Then I could just not continue. Read more

It wasn't terrible, but I didn't love it as much as the other books in the series. It was pretty underwhelming considering it's the last installment of the trilogy.Published 16 months ago by Ashley Holen
