Jodi Thomas takes us back to Harmony, Texas

One True HeartWhen I began ONE TRUE HEART I knew I wanted to write a story about a man, Drew Cunningham, who was afraid to live because he believed a terrible tragedy was he fault. One night in the Amarillo airport he meets a woman, Millanie McAllen, who has never been afraid of anything in her life.  She’s crippled up and broken and thinks the last person who can help her is a shy man who looks like he might be a professor.  Millanie has taken care of herself all her life and is touched that this guy thinks he can help her.  She decides to play the helpless role if only long enough to catch a ride to her home town, Harmony, Texas.

Though they are attracted to each other, neither believes in love.  And, like most of us in our real lives, Drew and Millanie are surrounded by friends and relatives who complicate their lives.

Millanie McAllen is falling apart.  She’s wounded and lost.  Drew is an expert at blending in.  They have nothing in common except an attraction neither believes they are ready to deal with.  When Millie takes an undercover assignment, she needs Drew’s help but his hesitation to talk about himself leaves her wondering how much she can trust him.

Flowing through the stories like soft music is Beau and Trouble’s love story.  He’s become a star, worth millions in the music industry, but he never forgets his roots in Harmony.  When he returns for his father’s death, he has to find the one girl who believed in him from the beginning.  She was his midnight love who picked him up at the back of the bar after he’d played all evening for a hundred dollars.  They’d race the moon in her sports car, but he never knew her last name. When he finds her, Beau knows that to win her back he’ll have to go back to being that young kid who loved music so much he’d play for free.

I love it when new readers find me for the first time.  It’s like I’m brand new, and they just discovered a Jodi Thomas book.  Then after they read one, they check my website or Amazon and discover they have many more to read.  I get a real shot of sunshine when they write or call.  It is kind of like the feeling you get when an old friend from the past calls.  For a moment, you’re sixteen again and giggling.

So, whether you’re a first time reader of a Jodi Thomas book or you’ve been with me through them all, I want you to know that you are the reason I write.
