A TEXAN ON HER DOORSTEP
A TEXAN ON HER DOORSTEP (3) by Stella Bagwell: Deputy Sheriff Mac McCleod and his brother Ripp have been looking for their long-lost mother Frankie, for some time, and they finally have a lead. But when Mac tracks down the woman who could be Frankie, Dr. Ileana Sanders is in his way. The older woman is ill and not up to visitors, so Mac decides to stay until that changes. Exploring his attraction to Ileana is more than a way to pass the time, but do they have a future? This one starts off with an emotionally volatile situation but loses momentum in the middle. The characters are likable enough, but their romance lacks sizzle.
