What I think you should know:
Texas Holiday Hideout by Virginia Vaughn is Christian Romantic Suspense. It is the second book in the Lawman Cowboy series. The first book does not have to be read prior to this book, but it does give updates on some of the characters in the first book. The book is set around Christmas, but it can be ready anytime of year.

What I think about this book:
What a ride, mystery and danger with a backdrop of Christmas! I enjoyed this book so much, it was full of action and suspense with enough connection to the characters to pull at your heart. Melissa was in such a hard situation, but I admired how she was willing to do anything to keep her son safe. Miles was a wonderful character, I enjoyed the interaction between Miles and Melissa. Vaughn did a great job of keeping me guessing about what was going to happen next. I will be recommending this to all of my friends. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Celebrate Lit, this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own. ( )

This story starts out making you sad since Melissa just sees her mother killed and she finds out she has been in witness protection since she was very young. Then we get twists and turns. Melissa and her son are targets and Miles has to protect and save them. I did not put this book down until I was finished reading. I love the Miles’ family and hope to see more of his sister and brothers. I love the slight amount of romance and all of the suspense. I received a copy of this book from Celebratelit and the author for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will. ( )

Book two in Virginia Vaughan’s Cowboy Lawmen series, “Texas Holiday Hideout” can easily be read as a standalone, although readers will not want to miss spending more time with the Averys in “Texas Twin Abuction”, which tells Lawson and his wife’s story. While I would not want my family to be comprised primarily of law enforcement agents due to the inherent danger, I do love reading about the Averys and how they band together and protect each other. Because they each serve in a different capacity, they have a range of knowledge and resources at their disposal, although this changes somewhat for Miles Avery when he is the US marshal assigned to keep Melissa Morgan and her young son safe within the witness protection program (WITSEC). Unable to trust his own agency due to the interference of a mole, Miles takes his two charges home with him under the guise of having married Melissa. What could possibly go wrong?

For some reason, I didn’t find this story quite as absorbing as the first book. I think that I was expecting there to be more about Christmas, given the title and official description, and the extent of the incidents occurring in the narrative became a bit numbing after a while. This is not to say that I didn’t enjoy “Texas Holiday Hideout”, because I did. I learned quite a bit about WITSEC, including that the majority of people in it are criminals and that no one who has followed the rules has ever been killed. I love the Avery family and how compassionate and openhearted they are, and Silver Star Ranch is idyllic. Vaughan skillfully demonstrates the emotions and internal conflicts of her characters, particularly noting how lying is part of witness protection and the implications this can have. Subsequently, trust is also a substantial issue. This scenario provides a unique opportunity for interweaving the faith element, which ultimately points to God’s sovereignty and to the precious truth of Romans 8:28 when Melissa proclaims, “If I’ve learned anything through this entire ordeal, it’s that, even though I couldn’t see God’s plan, He was working for me all along.”

I received a complimentary copy of this book through Celebrate Lit and was not required to post a favorable review. All opinions are my own. ( )

Having read the story of Bree and her encounter with the Avery family, I was looking forward to reading this book. The story captured my attention as much as the first. Melissa Morgan and her son require protection, and Miles Avery must provide that protection. A leak in the U.S. Marshal service forces him to take up the assignment. The only way to provide this protection involves moving to his family’s ranch.

Miles’s brothers include a sheriff, a Special Ops member, an FBI agent, plus his dad is a former sheriff, so he knows he can trust them even if he does not tell them everything. However, secrets have a way of being discovered in a family, which proves true in this story. However, the two plus her son need all the help they can get.

The pace of this story kept my attention. I wanted to keep reading to find out how what the outcome would be. So if you enjoy Christian suspense novels, check out this book for yourself. I definitely recommend it.

Texas Holiday Hideout, by Virginia Vaughan, is book two in the Cowboy Lawmen Romance series. While being part of a series, this is also a great stand alone story. This story is full of action, mystery and suspense. It starts out quickly and doesn't stop until the end.
Melissa witnessed her mother's murder and is now being held in the witness protection program. Someone within the program is leaking information to her whereabouts. Her location has been changed and different marshals have been replaced. Miles has been called in and almost immediately finds himself on the run with them to keep them safe. When there is no where else to go, he takes them home to his family. He tells his family she is his wife.
WOW! This is such a good story. I loved all the action and the love that was shown towards Melissa by Miles family. I did struggle with the way Miles allowed himself to develop feeling for her and her son so quickly. And, how he brought his brothers in to help before going to his boss. The story became more real for me when his boss was not happy with the situation. I enjoyed reading this story, it was hard to put down. The part that really stands out to me is when the person leaking the information admits that he wondered what would cause a person to leave behind everything from their past to go into the witness protection program. After making the mistake of getting involved with certain people, he could easily to see the need. Another part that really stand out to me is that to keep people safe, the marshals have to make up stories about the people's past and keep secrets from everyone, including their families. For some this may be considered telling lies.
I received an ebook copy of this story from Celebrate Lit as well as a print copy from the author. This is my honest review. ( )
