Nearest Thing To Heaven

Lynnette Austin

Maverick Junction #2

Released December 20th 2016


Lynnette Austin presents the second book in her sassy Texas-set Maverick Junction series, now in mass market!

Ty Rawlins, the widowed father of rambunctious triplets, is at odds with Sophie London when she returns to Maverick Junction at Thanksgiving for her cousin Annelise Montjoy’s wedding to Cash Hardeman. Chicago is home, where she runs Starlight Productions, her greeting card company. Sophie is a fish out of water in Texas. The cows freak her out. The long-horned steers are nightmare inducing. But Ty’s triplets, one of whom spilled cherry soda on her white silk lap at Cash’s barbecue, are enough to make her run all the way back to Illinois in her Jimmy Choos. What will it take for Ty to convince Sophie that Maverick Junction is where she belongs, right beside him and his boys?

My Thoughts

*ARC provided by Publisher*

The second book in author Lynnette Austin’s Maverick Junction series, Nearest Thing To Heaven is a well-written and completely engrossing contemporary romance that instantly drew me in and kept me invested in the characters and their story. Sophie London is a city girl through and through, or at least she thinks she is. Ty Rawlins is a widowed father of three energetic triplet boys. While the three children make Sophie want to run for the hills at first, the chemistry and connection she feels with Ty make her long for more of what her soon-to-be-married cousin has found.

I loved this book so much! The characters were fantastic, both deeply characterized and totally charismatic. Once I started reading, the writing and story flowed, with Sophie and Ty easily carrying me along with them on their journey.

If you’re looking for a dynamite contemporary western romance about a free-spirited city girl and a down-to-earth Texas charmer, pick up a copy of Nearest Thing To Heaven. It was so good and totally swept me up in its pages.

Final Analysis: 5 “EXCELLENT READ!” Stars


About the Author

Lynnette Austin loves Starbucks, peppermint patties, and long rides with the top down and the music cranked up! One of the great things about writing is that daydreaming is not only permissible but encouraged. She grew up in Pennsylvania, moved to New York, then to Wyoming, and presently divides her time between Florida’s beaches and Georgia’s mountains. She’s been a finalist in RWA’s Golden Heart Contest, PASIC’s Book of Your Heart Contest, and Georgia Romance Writers’ Maggie Contest. Having grown up in a small town, that’s where her heart takes her-to those quirky small towns where everybody knows everybody…and all their business, for better or worse.
