Her Texas Family by Jill Lynn | My Review

This review also could be titled, When You Wish the Book was Longer. And I mean this in the best way.
Vibrant Lucy Grayson is in Texas to make a new start--her way. Self-sufficiently stubborn to a fault, the girl with the heart as big as Texas makes it her mission to bring fun and joy into the lives of the perplexingly increasingly handsome, broody doctor she works for spur of the moment--but she first falls hard for his daughter, Mattie Grace.
Graham Redmond has sworn off relationships after the premature death of the mother of his daughter--the only relationship and female he cares about. Their routine life is turned extra colorful with the arrival of Lucy, who makes it her mission to oppose him at every turn, get her way--and bring out the very best in his Mattie Grace.
But like all love stories, despite the noble, kind, widowed doctor, his endearing daughter and a heroine with a strong, effervescent spirit--there are old wounds and fears that pop up that threaten to squelch the love and the chance of a future between the three.
With the author's wit, keen eye in writing sparkling chemistry and a sweep-you-off-your-feat romance, coupled with a warm grace through every line--this book won't be soon forgotten.
I only wish I could've spent more time with these characters--they jumped off the page and into my heart almost instantaneously.
Had to snap a pic beside my Love Never Fails mug as it is such a strong theme in this endearing story.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Moving to a small Texas town, Lucy Grayson is looking to live life on her own terms. When she agrees to take a job in Doctor Graham Redmond's office, the two instantly clash. The same can't be said for the widower's daughter. They quickly form a bond when Lucy begins teaching the little girl to dance. Graham soon realizes how good Lucy is for his daughter—and for him. Yet his late wife's parents don't agree. Their ultimatum to choose between them or Lucy fills Graham with despair. He can't let his daughter lose her grandparents…but he also can't lose the woman who could complete their family.
