Wanting to move his son away from his juvenile-delinquent friends, Jack Williams takes a job as boat fleet captain for a scientific research center on the coast of Texas. There, he meets new hire Dr. Ava Vincent, whom he's instantly attracted to. But it turns out that Ava is the long-lost sister of a friend and has been running from her past for more than 20 years. Eve Gaddy's Remember Texas (3) is a solid read. The story is interesting but moves slowly in places.

"Many years ago, Ava Vincent was Miranda Kincaid. She ran away from home at the age of fifteen, and never contacted her parents or her three brothers in the twenty years since. She now works and lives in the small town of Aransas, Texas, and doesn't realize until it's too late that two of her brothers live there. She also works with a man who happens to live next door to one of her brothers, Mark.
Jack Williams lost his wife to a car accident a number of years ago, leaving him with his only son Cole, now a teenager. They relocated to Aransas after Cole started hanging out with the wrong crowd. Jack has been involved with women since his wife's death, but has had no serious relationships. Now, getting to know Ava, he is starting to hope again for a committed relationship. He likes what he sees in her, and Cole seems to like Ava too. But Ava has a lot of baggage and a big secret. She is hesitant to start any relationship, but is having a hard time resisting Jack." - Complete review at BookLoons - M. Lofton
I wanted to give this book 4 stars, but there were a few problems with the story. I had a hard time with some of the dialogue, which felt stiff and unnatural to me. While I liked Jack and Cole, I didn't care at all for Ava, because of her insistence that she could not let go of the past. And with that said, it was hard to believe that by the last page, she finally was able to let go, almost instantly. The bulk of the story however kept my attention, and I think most readers will enjoy REMEMBER TEXAS.
