The McCord Brothers are the most eligible bachelors in Spring Hill, Texas. But these cowboys are about to get wrangled by the love of some very special women—the kind who can melt hearts and lay it all on the line.
Air force Captain Riley McCord has come home on medical leave to find one heck of a welcome reception. Every unattached woman in Spring Hill, Texas, wants to nurse him back to health. That includes his childhood friend Claire Davidson—the only person who understands how damaged he really feels. In high school, she chose his best friend over him. According to Riley's rules, that should make her off-limits forever. But when Claire suggests a no-strings fling, he can't refuse.
Claire always wanted Riley—but she also craved the safety and stability he couldn't offer. So she chose another path, only to end up crazier about him than ever. She's even convinced herself that this time she won't be devastated when he leaves. Yet once Riley realizes the depth of Claire's feelings—and his own—he'll have to make the ultimate choice: return to the job he loves or stay home for the woman who's always lived in his heart.
Take one hot Texas spring month, a small town filled with people who gossip constantly about everything, a group of people who grew up together, have a history with each other, and are still pining after the one that got away, and you will have Texas On Your Mind.
It is a humorous, light, and sunny story, a look of lives at Spring Hill, where everyone counts on the town gossip to keep you informed, and better than any social media site ever.
Riley came home to heal, the war torn body and mind was taking a beating on him, and his military career, and all he wanted, was to get back to work, get back on a mission, get out of the home town.
Claire was back at Spring Hill to prepare her grandmother's house for sale. Her long time boyfriend wanted to marry her, the town wants to know who was the father of her son, she wanted to know why her parents didn't want her as a kid, and maybe have a fling with Riley, if that was all she was ever going to have with him.
Riley and Claire have an interesting relationship. They talk about painful stuff, they support each other in when needed, they know each other well, but why don't they talk about their relationships, as well as about everything else in their lives? Why doesn't he explain the non existing relationship with Jodi to her?
After the slow moving story, with built up about the letter and the paternity of Claire's son, the ending suddenly seemed rushed.
The tale has a lovely flow in it, the feeling of the hot summer days lazing by is evident. The relationships give the word complicated a new meaning, but behind all the small town drama, there's people who truly care about each other. The characters feel real, they are all likable, easy to relate to, or you know one just like him or her. The family is tight, even with all the problems and power struggles, they love and care for each other. I can see this series developing into one of those much loved family sagas of the south
