This third book in the “Trouble in Texas” series is meant to be a lighthearted and amusing read, with a dash of spiritual profundity thrown in. Knowledge of the characters and the progression of the storyline in books one and two would definitely enhance the reader’s enjoyment of this book. Entertainment, rather than accurate historical portrayal, is the primary goal, evidenced by scenes like Tina picketing the small-town saloon and inciting a spontaneous mud-wresting riot in the streets. The plot moves along quickly and doesn’t lack action, although the unique spiritual theme of this novel is developed through the thought life of Vince, whose anxiety about his mental health and his deliverance from that anxiety, teaches that we must trust every aspect of our future to the Lord. If you’ve read the first two books in the series you would enjoy this one. If books loosely themed on the Wild West are a genre you enjoy, I’d recommend this series to you.
