Lone Star Dad by Linda Goodnight ~ Review

Lone Star DadLucie's Review:

Nurse Gena Satterfield, has become the guardian of her nephew Derrick, and she has hopes that moving home to Gabriel's Crossing, will help ease the transition to their new life. But she never knew that moving to Gabriel's Crossing would bring her face to face with the secret that her sister swore her to secrecy on before her death.

But as her neighbor Quinn Buchanon connects with her nephew, cutting through his anger and the walls that he has built around herself, she wonders how long she can keep her sister's secret.

Quinn is a former football star, but his career came to an end with an injury that took him off the field, and he hasn't played football since. But as his relationship with Derrick grows, he finds himself throwing around the ball and giving him some pointers. He helps Gena with Derrick, and finds that he likes their company more than he thought he liked being alone.

Gena is smart, capable and compassionate, everything has happened so fast and she's doing the best she can to make it all work.

Overall a great book. and Quinn changes a lot over the course of the story, realizing that it isn't what he has lost that defines him, but who is now and what he let's define him. I really liked how he connects with Derrick and help him adjust to life without his mother. A great read about second chances and new beginnings.
