Texas Blue is the fifth Whispering Mountains novel. It can be read and enjoyed as a stand alone novel. The best part of reading a Jodi Thomas novel is…the love and passion she brings to the story and characters. I absolutely fell in love with Lewt and Em. Lewt because he thought he was quite the ladies man but in a charming way and Em because she has a feisty personality and she kept Lewt in line. As I was reading this book, I could imagine myself at the ranch. Too bad that the ranch, Em, Lewt and the rest of the McMurrays don’t exist. They would be great people to hang out with. I guess that I will jut have to settle for visiting with them in the books. If you want to rope yourself a winning read than pick up a copy of Texas Blue today! You won’t regret it.
