Love Finds You in Humble, Texas

Author: Anita Higman
Publisher: Summerside Press
ISBN: 978-1-934770-61-0
Genre: Inspirational/contemporary romance

Trudie Abernathy is used to giving up her dreams. Starting with her mother’s untimely death, Trudie has put herself last, giving up all she hoped for to work in a boutique and not having much of a relationship with the opposite sex. But all that changes when her sister, Lane, fixes Trudie up with a wonderfully kind and handsome financial advisor, Mason Wimberley.

Mason is used to being fixed up on blind dates too. Nothing wrong with him, except that most women who are wowed by his career as a financial advisor shutter and run the opposite direction when they find out his family owns a funeral parlor. He hates to tell Trudie about his family, but to his relief, she seems to take it all in stride.

Trudie and Mason hit it off instantly, and have a wonderful second date following the first. But then Lane decides that she’s in love with Mason, and so she asks Trudie to give him up so Lane can have a chance at him. Trudie is hurt, but even more concerned about hurting Mason by refusing his attempts to ask her out. Still, she feels that Lane has more rights to falling in love with a great man than she does. Will Trudie be able to step back and yet find her heart’s desire?

LOVE FINDS YOU IN HUMBLE, TEXAS is the sixth book in the Love Finds You series, and one I really enjoyed reading. At first I found Trudie quite negative, but when I discovered she had a klutzy side and a great sense of humor I was hooked. Trudie was still negative, but the klutziness and the laughs more than made up for it. Mason was – what can I say – the world’s perfect hero. Kind, handsome, rich, and willing to work for what he wants. I thoroughly enjoyed reading LOVE FINDS YOU IN HUMBLE, TEXAS and am looking forward to the next book I have in my to-be-read pile in this series. $12.99. 318 pages.
