5.0 out of 5 stars Western romance at its' best 6 Nov. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In 1875 Pittsburgh, a worried Charlie O'Riley puts his beloved daughter Kara on a train heading west. He informs her that she is to vanish for a year because it is not safe here. Charlie fears that if she surfaces too early she will die.

A desperate Kara reaches Texas with no money left. If she fails to get work soon, Kara knows she has one remaining option if she is to eat. So she applies for a bookkeeping position on the Catlin Ranch and manages to get hired by the owner Jonathan Catlin. Her first impression of her boss is that he is the coldest heartless person on the planet. However, though he carries much personal baggage, she begins to see another caring side of Jonathan. Soon Kara and Jonathan fall in love, but will that keep them safe and together when the past threatens the present?

After several Texas romances, readers would expect that Jodi "Texas" Thomas would reach her Alamo, but instead the talented author once again provides her audience with a fresh character driven western romance. The story line moves quickly because the delightful lead couple and the secondary players seem genuine and turn the plot into a vivid look at a bygone era. THE TEXAN'S DREAM is a dream of a tale for those fans that gain pleasure from an gregarious Americana romance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging and sweet, Jodi Thomas caught my attention. 11 Nov. 2001
By B. Pussman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I thought this was good reading with an interesting storyline and a great couple. Kara was not a simple minded prairie chick
who stammers around men. This 'wee little bookkeeper had me on her side from the get go. Has for Jonathan well if you like them dark mysterious with a subtle sense of humor then you'll enjoy this book. The supporting cast was a colorful bunch I
wouldn't call this a sexy book but a good storytelling book with a good plot, humor and of course good old fashion attraction. It certainly got me interested in picking up a few more Jodi Thomas books while cruising the zshops. *chuckle* I was just remembering to toss the biscuits.. yes definately a good read.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Texan's Dream 16 April 2003
By Alicia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I decided to read Jodi Thomas' The Texan's Dream because I wanted a light and interesting read, and I got what I wanted. It is a descriptive and easy to read novel that will make you laugh and cry. Thomas uses very little figurative language, but she does use a few similes to effectively show the reader what is happening, and her use of vivid imagery paints a picture of her surroundings.
The Texan's Dream is about Kara, a woman sent west by her father in order to protect her during the union conflicts in the coal mines in Pennsylvania in the 1800s. She needs a job, and is soon hired by Jonathan, a man she describes as cold and unemotional. They become close friends who slowly fall in love.
The theme of this novel is overcoming obstacles. Kara and Jonathan both had emotional and family problems that could have ended their relationship if they had not persevered, but they did not let these obstacles get in the way of their love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely delightful. 23 Oct. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Although my first preference isn't western stories Jodi Thomas and Bobbi Smith are converting me quickly. What incredible writers!!I don't agree that the main theme in this book is about perseverence and overcoming obstacles. I think it is much more than that. It's about the joy of friendship and love and the devastation when you lose someone you love. It's about the importance of family and the virtues of honesty and integrity.It's also about being true to ourselves and fighting for what we want. It's about forcing yourself to go on when you've lost everything. It's about risking everything for another person who needs you. It seems like such a "simple" little frontier story but don't be fooled. This is excellent. The characters have such a rich depth that they become friends.I hated to see the book end. I also love the sense of humor that's interspersed. Life would be unbearable if we couldn't laugh at ourselves and or with others. One of my favorite scenes is when Kara and Jonathon have a heated quarrel. He finds her crying (and hugged ) by a girl who only speaks apache. Since he also speaks apache, Dawn gives him a dressing down in apache. Poor hunky Jonathon mumbles : "You don't even understand a word she's saying and you're still on her side!!". Maybe you had to be there. And I hope you are....soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars A captivating Love Story! 6 Dec. 2004
By Deborah A. Brand - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I loved the McLain series and was thrilled to find a sequel about Jonathan. Jodi Thomas updated his life, then continued with such vivid, descriptive detail, that you can invision his heartwarming love story

It has it all! Romance, drama, emotion, humor; all you can wish in a truly great love story. I couldn't put it down! We not only got back Jonathan and the McLains, but also the humorous, sensitive and very loveable character of Kara. Kara's story combined and complimented Jonathan and the McLain's with humor and love in true Jodi Thomas style. Exceptionally well written without unneccessary words just to fill the pages. I read my Romances for fantasy and relaxation, not education! Jodi Thomas took me on a totally captivating fantasy trip again!
