RE:View | Texas Wildflowers by Anita Higman

Set in four exotic locations in Texas and following the lives of the McBride sisters, Texas Wildflowers by Anita Higman will keep you entertained as well as intrigued! 

These four novellas set in Texas take on that "bigger than life" feeling almost everything in Texas has - they may be short, but they are not without rich flavor and sweet romance to boot.  I really enjoyed the pace of the stories.  Knowing that they are novellas, the plot tends to move more quickly than a full-length novel will, which allows you to complete a full story in one sitting if you have the time.  I recommend this compilation to anyone looking for a light read and who would enjoy a smattering of different locations and various characters tied together by family.  Anita does a good job of giving the sisters their own personalities and traits, as well as bringing in the "right" guy at the right time in their lives.

Rosy McBride faces something no woman wants to - being left at the alter by her husband-to-be.  Woven in this story are themes of family and the idea of looking outwardly when sometimes you'd rather not face "real life".  

For Lily McBride, a counselor with her own business, life appeared to be handing her something impossible.  When a potential client not only sparks Lily's astute counselor mind but also her romantic interest she must face the vows she's made as a counselor and make one of the hardest decisions.

Violet McBride is nothing like her online persona.  She is neither romantic nor daring in her lifestyle.  Happy to settle for the idea of companionship rather than love, she faces a shock when Morgan boldly enters the picture.  Will she give in to her less-than-practical side?

Giving up her job due to moral principles, Heather finds herself faced with a new resolve - to tell the truth, no matter what.  Will this help her or get her into more trouble?  Evan Finch also enters the picture with a random request that may just send them into a whole new life together.
