Publisher's Summary

Rio Wells, Texas, 1886

Dustin McCutcheon gets the surprise of his life when he comes face-to-face with Sidney Calhoun, the spitfire offspring of his father's worst adversary. The whole of Texas knows that McCutcheons and Calhouns just don't mix. Period. Yet Dustin is drawn to Sidney. The stirrings of attraction she brings out leave him with a serious decision to make: break the hearts of his family - or break his own. Neither choice is palatable....

Texas Lonesome, book eight of the McCutcheon Family Saga, continues the story of the brave and passionate men and women of Y Knot, Montana, and Rio Wells, Texas, by USA Today best-selling author Caroline Fyffe.

Texas Lonesome: McCutcheon Family Series, Book 8

Dustin was introduced in Texas Twilight (McCutcheon Family Book 2). When Lily, the woman he was pursuing, married his cousin John he behaved horribly. He showed up at their wedding dinner uninvited and started a fight that landed both him and John in jail for the night. His actions lead to the damage of restaurant and ruined John’s and Lily’s wedding night.

When Texas Lonesome (McCutcheon Family Book 8) begins Dustin and his younger brother Chaim are on a mission of mercy to help a friend. While on this mission he crosses paths with Judge Halford, a friend of his father, who happened to like the restaurant he caused damage to. The whole of Texas knows about the McCutcheons and Calhouns feud that has spanned 20 years. In fact Judge Halford knows both patriarchs and counts them as friends.

Sidney Calhoun is the second youngest of the family and has been her brother’s keeper since he was a toddler. She and her other siblings have been taught to hate the McCutcheon Family by their father. I loved Sidney from the moment I met her. She is brave and feisty with a heart of gold.

Dustin surprised me from the very beginning of this story. His redeeming qualities shone through from the moment that he met Sidney. Thanks to the feud started by Sidney’s father he was stuck in a very difficult position. Watching him come to terms with his feelings and learning to fight for what he believed was right was wonderful.

I was thrilled that John and Lily were back in this story. John is another one who had to learn to overcome his pride. Surprisingly, Dustin was very instrumental in him doing that.

This story was a roller-coaster of emotions that I thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend. While this book can be enjoyed as a stand-alone title, I have loved the entire series. I consider both the Texas and Montana McCutcheons my friends from another period in time and am thrilled to visit with them in each new adventure.

One McCutcheon isn't lonesome anymore....

Where does Texas Lonesome rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This audible ranks right up there with the top stories and narration. Corey Snow gives the book "life" with inflection and sincerity. He can make you smile with the story and shed a tear when tragedy strikes.

What other book might you compare Texas Lonesome to and why?

Montana Dawn is excellent; you have to love Luke and Faith. Or, if you are a fan of Mail Order Bride books, you can't miss with Kathryn who meets the love of her life when Tobit takes a bride.

Which character – as performed by Corey M. Snow – was your favorite?

Dustin McCutcheon without a doubt is done to perfection by this narrator. Corey Snow gives voice to both men and women but the deep voice of Dustin makes you realize he is the man you can fall in love with. When he talks to Sidney, you feel his love and sincerity.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely a book you don't want to put down. I confess, I was listening to this story late into the night. Listening to audible holds your interest and gives life to the characters.

Any additional comments?

Whether you read this book and/or listen to the story via audible, this genre holds your interest. A Caroline Fyffe book always gives heart and meaning to the old west. This book is no exception; you want to meet the McCutcheons of Texas.

Love this series!!!

Wonderfully written story, and have immensely enjoyed each book in the McCutcheon series.
Cory Snow did an incredible job in portraying each one of the characters in each story. His voice is amazing, and believable in every way. I didn't want each book to end, and found each each one to be better than the last! Looking forward to Carolyn Fyffe's next McCutcheon book. Please don't end the series!!!

A Visit Home

Reading a McCutcheon novel is like visiting with members of your family. I love catching up with what's happening with them. Texas Lonesome is a excellent book and I look forward to Book 9.

Love beyond the feud!!

Once again Caroline Fyffe has written a story that just can't be put down. I love the McCutcheons and this one is no exception. The Texas branch of the family has its own problems and this newest one sets two feuding families together. With Dustin's sense of humor and Sidney's sassy spirit they are just so much fun to read!!

Dustin and his family have one of the biggest ranches in Texas. While in San Antonio to testify for a friend, Dustin meets just about the prettiest girl he's ever seen. Upon learning who she is though he must rein in his thoughts and try to deny his attraction to her.

Sidney Calhoun has once again come to bail her brother out. But the judge has other things in mind. Blaming the McCutcheon's for their father almost dying years ago, the families can hardly stand each other. Throwing the Calhouns and McCutcheons together is like mixing fire and gasoline. Feuding for years, she doesn't know how this will work but refuses to leave her brother in their hands. But her attraction to Dustin is bringing about a whole other set of problems.

Will these two ever come together or will their families feud blind their hearts to what could be? And will a secret kept for many, many years destroy a family for good??
One of Caroline's best yet!! Cannot wait for more of the McCutcheons!!

The best series I've followed for 2 years

Starting box nine. And can't wait! Every since the mail order bride series I can't put these books down. Sometimes I think I was born at the wrong time. Carolyn paint such a vivid picture of life then. Can't wait for more
