    One Reply to “The Texan's Dream”

    1. The romance felt a little forced at times and the end was a little on the cheesy side, but overall a great story. I loved Kara and her strong spirit and Jonathan was absolutely perfect for her.

    2. A frustrating read, and often boring. An Irish gal, Karina O'Reilly, shortened to Kara, kept blowing hot and cold on Jonathan Catlin, her boss. Meanwhile, he blew hot and cold right back! Several silly squabbles. In the end, I simply didn't care about their relationship.Jonathan was initially portrayed as a cold, hard, killer with no friends, no love, etc. But in reality, the author completely countered her initial portrayal. Jonathan was kind and loyal, with a loving sister and several very goo [...]

    3. In Pittsburg, PennsylvaniaCharlie O'Riley told his daughter, Karina Page O'Riley, to not try to contact him for one year. He shoved her on a train and she left behind a town where at least two houses were burning. She left without talking to Devin, O'Toole, the man she was supposed to marry. Her father told Karina that Devin knew she was leaving and he would see her in a year. Charlie told Karina that she needed to leave so that maybe they both could stay alive. She needed to get off the train s [...]

    4. I haven't been reading the series an order but it doesn't really seem to matter. I have to say that so far I've enjoyed all of the books I have read. And this installment, we meet Kara and Jonathan. I really like Cara a lot although I have to admit that some of her actions the beginning of the book made me seriously question her sanity. However when Jonathan made good on what she had done, it all came together. I liked meeting Marianne is well and was pleased to see she was taken care of. I don' [...]

    5. Since I loved Wife Lottery series, I kinda had a big expectations reading this. I bought this used book without knowing it's the last series. But somehow it's not that great. I did love the story, the relationship between Kara and Jonathan, along with his people in Caitlin's Ranch. Especially how Jonathan's guards acted around and toward Kara. But I was hoping there would be conflict involving Kara and Quil, Jonathan's Indian used-to-be best friend since Kara once acted she's saving his son when [...]

    6. Loved this book. The characters were well thought out and several times I found myself chuckling quitely as I read it. I mean who wouldn't laugh at an anrgy irish woman throwing food at the man who just unknowingly insulted her. Jonathon had it coming he just didn't know it. But as much as the book is funny, it is also sweet. After he realized that he had hurt her feelings, he apologized and used the sweetest words.Would definitely recommend this book.

    7. I have read quite a few of Jodi Thomas' books and have loved every one of them. This book is the fifth in a series that I really enjoyed but this book did not stand up to her high standards. The storyline was good but it seemed that it jumped around a lot, fast in one point or slower in another. Still would recommend it as the fifth of this series.

    8. Another great historical romance from one of my favorite authors. Here we have the story of a young Irish woman, Kara, and a Texas rancher, Jonathan. This very unlikely couple doesn't even like each other when they first meet, but in true romantic fashion JT shows how they are more perfectly matched than they ever imagined. Great romantic read.

    9. Well written and engaging love story, right from the get-go. Spunky, fast-paced, never a dull moment--and allows for an array of character development. Loved it, would definitely recommend the McLain series to any romance reader.

    10. Heroine has to leave Pittsburg because of Union clashes and her Irish family. She takes job in Texas on a ranch and falls in love with hero. First time I have read ths author and I just couldn't get into the story.

    11. I liked this book also. There are 5 books in The Mclain Series and I loved them all. I had never read a Jodi Thomas book but I think she is a very good author and I am looking forward to reading more of her books.

    12. Fleeing trouble in Pittsburgh, young Kara O’Riley has no choice but to travel as far West as her meager funds will take her.

    13. I was sorry to see this series end, but I liked the way Jodi Thomas wrapped up all the stories.
