    4 stars I've been reading this series in the completely wrong order whoops and while it certainly may be enjoyable if read together this book can definitely stand alone I liked Franny a lot She is independent tough and always there for everyone else but she still has a vulnerable side I wasn't sure what to make of Nate at first but he uickly grew on me He has secrets and has been through a lot but he really is just trying to do the right thing While there were some times on their road to HEA that I had hoped may play out a bit different I enjoyed their romance overall The ending was really touching and I can't wait to read

    Great story with strong women and men who aren’t perfect I enjoyed this book so much knowing it would be a HEA but wanting to figure out how it would get there Lots of twists and turns emotions surprises and laughs Texas women are traditionally strong and maybe thought to be a bit rough around the edges unless of course they are the beauty ueens Franny Morgan has a lot of losses in her past and she’s not about to let herself be hurt again She has made it her mission in life to revitalize the little town she settled in if she can only get the landlord to answer her letters She is all work and no play and she adopts the townspeople as her family and she won’t let them downComing to find out how he can get the letter writing lady to back off Nate Russell is sure he will find it a simple job And then he meets Franny and those plans to spend a day and leave are thrown out the door He can’t tell her who she is once he meets her but he has to figure out a way to tell her that saving the town is a lost causeVery interesting story that you know will work out but you just can’t figure out how Love itI received an ARC from the author for an honest and unbiased review No compensation was promised or received for the review

    A very good book The characters were so well written it felt like you could sense how each one would react when some new issue would arise Nate had so many unresolved feelings I could not imagine how he would be able to let them go enough to open his heart to the town and the people in it I was surprised to find out how long Franny had lived there based on her love for the town and the communityNate and Franny did not have a hot steamy chemistry Jean Brashear made me feel like they had of a passionate sensual chemistry that gradually built into something sustainable A slow burn that became combustibleWhen Nate was forced to face his demons and deal with the difficult unwanted decisions he felt he was forced to make all I could do was hold my breath until I could see how things were going to work out I would definitely recommend this book It is the fourth in the series but the first one in the series I have read I discovered that I had purchased the first three books already and they were in my TBR pile Guess I know what I'll be doing this cold rainy weekend I voluntarily read and reviewed the Advanced Reader Copy of this book

    ARC for honest review with no compensationTeas Deception is book 4 of the Lone Star Lovers series and Book 26 in the Texas Heroes by Jean Brashear and as always these books are awesome and if you haven't read any in this series you need to Franny Morgan a small town café owner ants nothing than to save her small town and she decides to start a campaign of writing letters to the conglomerate who own the building in the town and are falling down around their earsNathan Russell a down on this luck carpenter who shows up in town and I willing to trade work for food and board and help the town if he canexcept he is not who he seemsand keeping his deception under wraps and falling for Franny was not part of the deal What happens when the deception comes to light? Can these two find their way back to each other and rebuild the town or does it all come down around their ears???
