Texas Target, the second title in the An O’Connor Family Mystery series was an intriguing story that brings home the fact that we don’t always know someone as well as we think – even if they’re family.

Summer is convinced her sister, Autumn, is in big trouble.  She’s been out of contact for too long.  At best she’s gone off and found trouble – at worst, she’s been murdered and that’s sounding more realistic than anything else.  So, Summer does what any sister would do – she goes looking for her and finds herself dodging some bad guys who are convinced she’s her sister, and they are playing for keeps.  To protect herself she ends up in jail asking her sister’s ex-husband to bail her out.  Convincing bad guys she’s her sister is one thing – an ex… not so easy.

Dawson may have made a mistake with Autumn but he’s not going to let her sit in jail.  Yet, this woman isn’t acting like his ex-wife in any shape or form.  It won’t be long before Dawson realizes he’s facing Autumn’s twin sister (one he never knew existed) and finding himself tangled up in tracking down a woman he’d once married but obviously never really knew.

Texas Target drew me in and kept me in that world as the danger, the questions, and the attraction between Summer and Dawson ratchets up several notches.  There are vile villains to loathe, charming secondary characters to like, and a couple that might have come together under unusual circumstances but they fit so well together.  I enjoyed my time back in this world and I’m looking forward to starting Texas Law.

I own a Kindle edition of this title.

Available in paperback or for your favorite e-reader – mine is the Kindle.
