Two families long divided by an ancient feud. Can a powerful love finally unite them?
Blade Hamilton is the last of his line. He's never even heard of Crossroads, Texas, until he inherits land there. Riding in on his vintage Harley-Davidson, Blade finds a weathered ranch house, an empty prairie and a dark river that cuts a decisive path between the Hamiltons' land and that of their estranged neighbors.
When Dakota helps a stranger on the roadside, she isn't prepared for the charisma of the man on the motorbike—or for the last name he bears: Hamilton, of her family's sworn enemies, representing all she's been raised to loathe. The problem is, it looks like Blade is in town to stay, and there's something about his wolf-gray eyes she just can't ignore.
Lauren Brigman feels adrift. Unhappy in work and unlucky in love, she knows she ought to be striving for more, but she's never truly at peace unless she's at home in Crossroads. If the wider world can't satisfy her, is home truly where her heart is?

Crossroads, Texas once again delivers a backdrop of gorgeous scenery and realistic characters as Jodi Thomas introduces the next story in the Ransom Canyon series.
INDIGO LAKE, like its predecessors, rolls out multiple storylines at one time. Even those characters who have already been given a happily ever after show up to add flavor to the book. The author has effectively demonstrated that she can juggle multiple couples at one time, fully immersing the reader in the plot.
With a long-standing family feud on the line, as well as some shady happenings at one of the biggest ranches in the community, there's a lot of activity going on. Love also finds it way into the storyline, complete with some interesting twists and turns.
Ultimately, as with any Jodi Thomas book I have read, this story goes on my keeper shelf. The beautiful writing easily brings the story to life.
An added bonus is the Winter's Camp novella at the end, which takes readers back to 1872 when James Randall Kirkland first arrived in Ransom Canyon to settle. The love story between Kirkland and Millie was absolutely beautiful, which only serves to enhance the appeal of this series.
