Product Description

A woman is wrongly accused--and one man will risk everything to prove her innocence and save her life.

The last thing Jack Mansfield ever wanted was to arrest his former sweetheart--especially with her crying five-year-old hanging on to her. But Jack is the police chief of Bullard, Texas, and records indicate Charli has embezzled more than $100,000 from the bank where she works. Charli swears she's innocent, but Jack must abide by the law.

Charli thought she had pieced her life back together after her first husband left her alone and pregnant. But now she sits in a jail cell, accused of a crime she did not commit! , with a little girl waiting on the outside. Charli's faith has always kept her steady during the ups and downs of life, but she can't deny she's now close to despair.

Jack has harbored unrequited love for Charli for over a decade; and that love drives him to task himself and his private-eye brother, Sonny, to prove her innocence and find the perpetrator. But Jack and Charli will never have their happily-ever-after if she goes to prison or is murdered by the person who framed her. Will they find the true culprit in time to save Charli's life and finally give their love a chance?

    It grabbed from the beginning and I really enjoyed the characters. I especially like where it gets right to the point and solves the problem quickly.

    I absoultely loved this book! Being a native Texan, I could really see everything happening in the novel. Debra White Smith has mastered the regional approach to writing, which has undoubtedly captured the atmosphere of the great state of Texas. Throughout the novel, I found myself captivated by the suspense, romance, and spiritual battles that each character faces with the progression of the story. Ever since I read my first Debra White Smith novel, one of her Jane Austen series, I have been hooked on her writing style. She paints vibrant scenes and really knows how to make the reader hold their breath, in anticipation, to find out what happens next. I see nothing but success with the Lone Star Intrigue series and I cannot wait to see what happens next!

    I love Debra White Smith's easy writing style. She draws you into the characters and her stories are always full of great plot lines. I really felt for Charli since she was a single mom who had been abandoned by her husband and left to raise a five year old daughter. She regretted being swept off her feet by someone that she honestly didn't know very well. The love that she and Jack still carried over the years was very strong and I found myself wanting to prod them and get them together. This was a wonderful mystery full of twists and turns! You will not want to put this book down.

    Debra White Smith is, by far, one of my favorite authors. She has a way of writing stories that captivates her audience and pulls the reader into the story. Texas Heat was one of her best! The story was very interesting! It is one of those "cannot put it down" kind of books. I found myself right in the middle of Bullard, Texas watching the story unfold. As a busy mom of three kids, I use reading as a way to relax and unwind. I always try to keep one of Debra's books on-hand to read. She can tell a story in a way that few can. You will not be disappointed in this book. It was awesome!!!

    Another winner from Debra!! Texas Heat has mystery, romance, and characters who tug at your heartstrings. I'll definitely be looking for the next one in the series. Thanks, Debra, for entertainment that is clean, and written from a Christian worldview.
