Book Review / Sunrise Crossing by Jodi Thomas

Return to peaceful Crossroads, Texas, where community comes first and love thrives in the unlikeliest places… 

Yancy Grey is slowly putting his life back together after serving time for petty theft. As he rebuilds an old house, he finally has a sense of stability, but he can't stop thinking of himself as just an ex-con. Until one night, he finds a mysterious dark-haired beauty hiding in his loft. But who is she, and what secret is she protecting?

The art gallery Parker Lacey manages is her life—she has no time for friends, and certainly not lovers. But when her star artist begs Parker for help, she finds herself in a pickup truck, headed for the sleepy town of Crossroads. A truck driven by a strong, silent cowboy…

Gabe Snow has been a drifter since he left Crossroads at seventeen after a violent incident. When he accepts a job in his hometown, he'll have to decide whether he can put the worst night of his life behind him and build a future in the community that raised him.

What I loved about this story...  I cannot believe this is the last book in the Ransom Canyon (that's all that is listed on Goodreads at the moment so I am not sure if there will be more in the future but I hope there will be.....).  I have loved this series so much I can't believe it has now come to an end :-(  As with the other books, this story follows three characters.

First there is Yancy Grey, who has featured in previous stories as mostly a side character but in this book he is a main character.  We follow him settling down and meeting a mysterious lady who is hiding in a loft behind a house he is renovating for himself.  Not only is this story about that encounter and what happens next but we discover more about Yancy's family in the past and, for me, that was the best part of this story.

Next we follow Parker Lacy who heads up an art gallery.  We follow her a she protects a certain person who is in danger by letting her stay at her country house, which so happens to be in Ransom Canyon.  To make sure this person is ok, she leaves the art gallery and travels to Ransom Canyon to help her friend.  Not only is Parker's story all about that but she also meets a cowboy who interests her...  Loved both aspects of Parker's story.

Finally we have Gabe Snow.  I won't go into too much detail of Gabe's story but let's just say that his story was the most interesting to me.

What a fantastic story and an amazing end to the Ransom Canyon series (as far as I know it).  If you love romance stories this is definitely a story to pick up and get swept away with.
