Hummingbird Hollow

Cass Townsend, owner and operator of The Cass Townsend Agency in Hollywood, makes a more-than-satisfactory living by helping talented-but-unknown actors become famous.

Rugged Texas horse rancher Ryder Hayes sports oversized chips on both very broad shoulders toward celebrities, thanks to a twin brother who ‘made it big’ in Hollywood and then estranged himself from his family.
She’s prim and proper to a fault. He’s laid back and fun-loving, with a streak of pure mischief.

Ryder’s a good man, but not a Christian—not by a Texas mile. Cass hasn’t missed a single Sunday service since childhood.

These two are the epitome of polar opposites —and never the twain shall meet…or so the saying goes. But then again, things don’t always happen quite as one might expect in Hummingbird Hollow.

Toni Littlebird believes God has created someone especially for her. When it’s time, He will bring him to her.  When she meets him, she’ll know that he’s The One, and she will love him in that very moment.

But that’s before Dax Hendrick roars into Hummingbird Hollow on a noisy, crippled Harley, spitting stinky filth into the air and chasing away Toni’s beloved hummingbirds. Dax sports a wild mop of hair, an unkempt beard, and a condescending attitude toward her ancestral home. Toni takes one look into his mesmerizing blue-green eyes and…she knows. This uncivilized, creature with too much hair and a ridiculously loud, smelly mode of transportation is “The One.” She’d been right about knowing him in an instant, but wrong about something far more important: She will never love him.

Why God sent Dax to this beautiful place is a mystery, and it’s clear he can’t expect any answers from the lovely but unsympathetic owner of Inn the Hollow—a haphazardly constructed dwelling that goes against every professional rule in Dax’s area of expertise. He hopes to get the green light on getting out of there before the uneven corners, crooked floor slats, and random construction wither his architectural creativity.

Is it possible that, between God’s gentle leading and a lesson or two from the fascinating hummingbirds that populate the hollow, Dax and Toni will open their hearts to each other? Or will their stubborn wills ruin God’s beautiful gift of love?
