This is at the top my favorite series list!
Book Information: Love covers a multitude of sin. A stolen kiss ignites a fire that burns all the way from Texas to New York City. Torn apart by war, rejection, and a letter with news she never wanted, Lacey Rose takes her shredded heart and runs. Charley figures out something isn’t right, but is duty-bound to the Confederacy until a deathbed order sets in motion a series of events that tests his love, honor, and commitment to the breaking point. Can the two lifelong friends see past the pain to finally realize God’s plan for them to be more than just kin?
My Review: In Just Kin we are shown how easily a young girl can be exposed to gambling, drinking, premarital sex, which, in this case leads to prostitution. For some readers this may be offensive, but this is a reality of life. Caryl writes about flawed characters and she uses these as examples of what sometimes happens when you turn your back on God. I like how I was drawn into their story and the events could be all so real! Lacey has lost her way and her family does not give up on her. Even as Charley is searching for her and falls into temptations, the outcome of forgiveness and redemption shines through. I am looking forward to the next in this series, wondering… What will the Buckmeyer family will be up to next?

In 2014, Simon and Schuster debuted VOW UNBROKEN, a historical Christian romance set in 1832 Texas, and Caryl followed with three additional novels.

In 2008, her high school sweetheart-husband Ron moved her to the woods of Red River County. Caryl counts four children and sixteen grandsugars life’s biggest blessings believing all good things come from God. Praying her story gives God glory, she hopes each one ministers His love, mercy, and grace to its readers. She and Ron live in Clarksville, Texas with two grandsons, Christian and Benjamen.
