Book Description

September 2002 Yellow Rose Trilogy (Book 2)

Dakota Rawlings, Texas Ranger, is accustomed to big adventure...but nothing in his work has prepared him for the seemingly easy task of escorting Miss Darvi Wingate to the town of Stillwater and on to Aurora.

Quick–witted, game for anything, and just as passionate about her newfound faith as Dakota is about his, Darvi seems to find trouble under every rock. When she becomes a pawn in one of the biggest rackets in town, she wonders if even a Texas Ranger can get her out of this one. Out here in the West, the stakes are high—for money, for power, and for love...under a Texas sky.

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF MY FAVS!!! Nov. 13 2003
By brooke
Whoever didn't give this book a THUMBS UP was crazy. I loved it! I kinda cheated and started on this book before the first one, but it didn't say much about Slater or Liberty so I knew I wasn't in trouble. I would SO recommend this to ANY TEEN GIRL!!! Anyway, Dakota Rawlings has been shot five times. Knowing that the end has come, or thinking it has, he lives and turns is eye toward God, and becomes a good religious Texas Ranger. But, Brace, his boss, doesn't want Dakota back in his Ranger business until he has fully healed, in other words, six months. Dakota gets really bored, and decides to be the guide and escort of Darvi Wingate, Brace's niece. She wants to leave Austin and visit her friend in Stillwater. But, the pretty and sweet Darvi has a knack for followers, or trouble. She gets captured by some men by mistake even! Well, there's always sweet and handsome and protective Dakota, who does absolutely everything he can to keep Darvi saffe. Then they fall in love. This book kept my nose glued between the pages, and so you can imagine how hard it was to set it down for good. read

3.0 out of 5 stars A Texas Sky April 3 2003
By A Customer
This book was all right. It wasn't her best though.
Towards the end, Lori Wick was constantly letting us know about how strong Dakota was. How safe he made everyone feel. We get the point after a couple of times.
I didn't think that Darvi deserved Dakota. Dakota deserved better. Darvi seemed so childish. I realize she's been through a lot, but then again, she is a woman. She pointed that out to her uncle in the beginning.
I thought it was silly that in the beginning Dakota says that Darvi was cute, but not pretty. Then in the middle of the book and so forth, it seemed as if on every other page another guy was following after Darvi. Men want to talk to her constantly. I mean, come one, what's going on? That just doesn't make sense at all. In my opion, kind of lame.
I actully liked Elliot and Seth. I think that it was sweet that Seth liked her so much. I don't agree with him about locking her up, but he seemed like a really nice guy. I was actully hoping she would like him in return. I felt soooooo bad for him.
It wasn't believable that he kept after her even when she pushed him away time and time again. I don't think that anyone has that much persistent, patience, and love than God.
Cassy was an okay character. It was unrealistic that she kept on taking everything Darvi said to heart. I think some people do believe everything, but the way Cassy was wrote, she didn't seem at all believable. At first, I actully thought that Elliot and Cassy had children together. It wasn't until later that I realized that she was married before.
Overall, 'City Girl' was better. This book is worth a read, but not a keeper. Sorry Lori Wick. I love a lot of your other books. But this one just wasn't the best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Reading! Jan. 2 2001
I am a big fan of Mrs. Wick's and was hesitant to purchase this item after reading several negative reviews on Amazon. However, once I began to read the book it was great! She writes this series similarily to "The Long Road Home" where each book focuses on a different member of the same family - an intriguing angle of writing. This book centred on the spiritual growth of the main characters and the struggles both experienced when trying to witness to their unsaved parents - an applicable lesson in life today. The story develops the characters well, portraying Darvi to be adventure-prone for no apparant reason, and Dakota struggling to become the man God wants him to be while resisting his old way of responding to circumstances. This is another fine work of fiction by Mrs. Wick and I look forward to reading the third book in the series. Enjoy!

2.0 out of 5 stars Texas Sky--Gray and Dreary Aug. 14 2000
By A Customer
Texas Sky has only one good point--it lets us know what happens to some of the characters introduced in the first book of the series. Aside from that, the story is dull and disconnected. The plot wanders from scenario to scenario, failing to tie them together into a cohesive whole. It reads like the author couldn't decide what would happen & so inserted plot changes as they occurred to her. Also, the Christian content is contrived, serving to "preach" rather than to advance the story or unveil the inner workings of the characters. The novel is weak in every area of literary merit--characters are flat, plot is weak, symbolism is non-existent, language is uninspired. In other words, when you read this novel, don't expect anything more than a mildly enjoyable visit with surface acquaintances.

3.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat Disappointed Dec 26 2000
By A Customer
I love Lori Wick. Her books were the first Christian romances I read. In fact "Every Little Think About You" was the first Christian romance I read. Her Rock Mountain series sealed my love for her books. However, I was somewhat disappointed in "A Texas Sky". Dakota's character seemed to miss the same spunk it had in the first book and Darvi's character was not as rounded as some of the other characters in other Lori Wick books. The book, I thought, was to be about how Dakota and Darvi came together, but only the last part of the book was dedicated to that. And I hated the ending, it just ended. I am looking forward to the third book but with hopes there will be more story to it. More to the capabilities I have come to love about a Lori Wick novel.
