"In Lone Star Diary, Frankie McBride (the eldest of the three McBride sisters) has finally left her husband and returned home to Texas. She's staying with her sister Robbie, who is pregnant and about to be married to her fiancé Zack. Soon Robbie has her hands full with three young boys and a baby, and welcomes Frankie's assistance with the kids. This helps fill a void left from the many miscarriages Frankie had while with her husband. At forty she knows the chances of having her own child are getting slimmer.
Texas Ranger Luke Driscoll has been in the picture for a while, trying to help out with a case connected with the death of Robbie's previous husband Danny. Luke wears a wedding band, and while Frankie has a crush on the law enforcement agent, she knows he's off limits. Luke too feels something more for the slightly insecure woman. The two embark on a friendship, Luke being very careful not to rush Frankie, who is still hurting from all that her husband did to her. But soon they are an item, and gossip spreads through town like wildfire. Frankie's mother is very embarrassed and chastises her for behaving like a trollop." - Complete review found at BookLoons - M.Lofton
LONE STAR DIARY is the third in the trilogy focusing on three sisters who write their innermost thoughts in their diaries. Loose ends are tied, including the mystery behind Danny's murder. I enjoyed the love story between Frankie and Luke, as well as the closure that Frankie needed from her soon-to-be ex-husband. This wasn't my favorite in the series, but was still worth the time spent.
