    1. The hero Gideon is a solider who spent the last 8 years in Iraq and Afghanistan, and is having problems with adapting to the normal life he desperately wants to live. He comes back home to Twilight for his father's funeral and is hit with two surprises. His father, the man who refused to admit that Gideon is his son, left him his ranch and 11 million dollars. And his high school sweetheart Caitlyn, has some news for him as well, he is a father to her 7 year old son Danny. What a welcome home, ri [...]


    2. Caitlyn Marsh, fell in love with Gideon Garza, but her father drove him out of town and she believed him to be dead all these years, and she has had to raise their son all on her own, still aching for Gideon and the love that they shared. But then he appears in Twilight and like a ghost she has no idea how to handle that he has been ALIVE. Gideon was born a 'bastard' and his father and brothers never have accepted him. He was driven out of his hometown, and joined the military, but lost somethin [...]


    3. I have mixed feelings about this book. It was definitely a page-turner & I wasn't even slightly annoyed. I really like the hero & the heroine & I found myself rooting for them. Although it takes place in Twilight (Texas), it has no Texas feeling to it. It could easily take place in another state. So if you aren't into cowboys - don't worry, there are no cowboys in this book. My main complain is that there were to many characters. I wasn't able to remember all Caitlyn's garden club me [...]


    4. I love stories about military/former military characters and this was just as good as I had expected. Gideon and Caitlyn had been high school sweethearts. She was the daughter of the local judge and he was the bad boy from the wrong side of town, but that didn't matter to them. When Gideon ends up in trouble with the law, he's given the choice of jail or the military. He left town, not knowing that Caitlyn was pregnant, and her father arranged things so that Caitlyn was told that Gideon was kill [...]


    5. Reviewer: ValerieCaitlyn Marsh stopped believing in happily-ever-after when high-school sweetheart, Gideon Garza, left for Iraq. Now she raises her small son while her matchmaking gardening club members drive her crazy. Then Caitlyn's world turns upside-down when Gideon swaggers back to Twilight.Gideon had left town in the middle of night with threats ringing in his ears. A lot of things have changed since then. This bad boy-turned-Green Beret bears scars from the war, the timid girl he loved is [...]


    6. I am in love with this author and her novels! I always love the people of Twilight, Texas that she introduces me to with each new installment of the series. Not only does she bring new romance with each book, but she also does my favorite thing and bring back characters from the previous books! I love when an author reminds the reader of previous books in the series by integrating them into the current read. With this book, we meet Caitlyn Marsh who owns the florist shop in town. After having a [...]


    7. This is the fourth book in the Twilight, Texas series and the first I have read. I found so much to like about this story. Caitlyn (the daughter of the town judge) and Gideon (the illegitimate son of the town’s wealthiest man) are very believable, as is their history and their parent’s conspiracy to keep them apart by giving Gideon a choice of jail or the military. Eight years later, Gideon comes home when his father dies. He lost his arm in the service of his country and has had a lot of ad [...]


    8. I kind of struggled with what to give this book as far as stars are concerned. The writing is good, no complaints on grammar, structure, etc. Unfortunately I had a few problems with the story from Chapter one. This was my first Lori Wilde book. I'm certain if I had started at the beginning of the series I wouldn't have felt overwhelmed by the amount of characters she tried to introduce right off the bat. I had to reread the prologue twice but it didn't help. I felt like she "info dumped" the who [...]


    9. I enjoyed this book. The heroine is a fairly recent widow with a little boy, but she's still haunted by the memory of her first love, a boy from the wrong side of the tracks who went off to war and was killed in Afghanistan. Except--when she's at the funeral of the Big Man in town--turns out he's not dead after all.The hero is the bastard son of the Big Man who was a bastard in every sense of the word except literal. The heroine's dad is the local judge, and she hasn't spoken to him in years--no [...]


    10. This was my first time reading anything by this author. I thought this book was good though I guess I would have liked to see more of the details in the story with regards to the forgiveness of certain characters and more background to each of the characters themselves. Take for instance Gideon. We know he was in Afghanistan and he lost his hand there but we didn't really know that he had a head injury the first time. We didn't even know that there was a first time until later in the story.I wil [...]


    11. I have read many books by Lori Wilde, so when I saw she had added another book to this story, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. I have to sayat I was not disappointed. I loved it so much, that I hated to see it end. That to me is a sign of a great writer. You'll find it very hard to put this book down, believe me, I was up until 4 am reading this one. Poor Caitlyn finding herself all alone pregnant at 17, after the boy she's always loved, up and leaves town without any notice, leaving her t [...]


    12. This book had everything a romance novel requires -- a lover returning from the dead, a spurned lover (although the spurner wasn't aware of that), a controlling father, several members of the Goodnight family (from the famed Goodnight Trail), the joining of an unwed mother to a good man who was later killed by a lightning strike, not to mention a prize for the best garden in Texas. Did I mention that the unwed mother's husband owned a florist shop?Author Wilde does a masterful job of filling out [...]


    13. Gideon was a very real character, one that we can relate to. He was a troubled youth who was sent away to the military and became a man with a dark side of life that only the few and proud know about. Left to think he was dead was Caitlyn. Who was lied to about what happened to Gideon and raised a son with a stand in husband. It was a toching story about healing, trusting and learning to love again.


    14. 3.5 starsI'm guessing on the rating somewhat because I discovered I forgot to record my having read this book. But I know I wanted to read the next book and I have enjoyed the previous books in the series.


    15. Twilight, Texas Novel definitely a must read. Had a hard time putting this book down.I felt like I was living amongst the folks in their small town Texas Twilight.


    16. What a great book!! I love when a story pulls me in and keeps me turning the pages. It held my interest all the way to the end. What a wonderful ending it was!


    17. The Welcome Home Garden Club is the 4th book in the Twilight Texaas series by Lori Wilde. I’m going to say it’s just okay. I liked the hero Gideon Garza and the heroine Caitlyn Marsh. I liked the ladies of the Garden Club which includes Flynn, Emma and Sarah from the first 3 books. Flynn is now going to college to earn her teaching degree, Emma and Sam are happily married and raising Charlie who is Caitlyn’s son Danny’s best friend. Sarah is happily planning her marriage to Travis. Patsy [...]


    18. This was a library sale purchase. I was looking for a pg-13 romance. If you don't mind detailed sexual exploits of 17 year old girls then you should be okay with this book. The author started out revealing that both the main characters were in love with the other and nobody else was in the way so the story lacked any suspense. The issue of PTSD was well covered though and it gave the book some merit. Not a terrible book. If you want to read about other people having sex then you will like this s [...]


    19. Originally posted at Romance Around the CornerLori Wilde’s Twilight Texas Series is wonderful. She has created a beautiful town full of quirky characters and compelling stories. I discovered her books a couple of years ago after the release of The Sweethearts' Knitting Club, and since then I’ve been anxiously expecting the next release.The Welcome Home Garden Club is about Gideon and Caitlyn. They used to be high school sweethearts and they loved each other madly. They also had a lot of obst [...]


    20. Wow!I, unknowingly, started reading this series in the middle and was very caught up with the cookie chronicles before finding the series list. As I've been reading the series now from the beginning I have really enjoyed each book. But this story is the one that touched me most deep!y. Thank you, Lori, for this book!



    21. It (the new Lori Wilde book) had me from the last sentence of the prologue."Then he stripped off his helmet, pulled away his goggles, and Caitlyn stared straight into the eyes of a dead man." Goosebumps popped out on my arms when I read this and I just knew I was going to love this story."The Welcome Home Garden Club" is the fifth of her Twilight, Texas series, and another winner as far as I'm concerned. This heart-warming story is one of Wilde's best. By the way, all of the other books in this [...]


    22. Reviewed on: readyourwritesThis is the fourth book in the Twilight, Texas series by Lori Wilde. However, it is the first book by Lori that I have read. It will not be the last.The story centers around two characters, Caitlyn Marsh and Gideon Garza. Two high school sweethearts who have had the last eight years of their lives changed dramatically as a result of things done to them by the adults in their lives.Caitlyn Blackthorne Marsh grew up being privileged, as the only child of Judge Richard Bl [...]



    23. The Welcome Home Garden Club is a sweet, heartwarming read. I liked the premise for what it was; simple, not completely new, or unexpected, but full of emotional potential. Where the story lacked originality, there was still the opportunity to bring the characters to life and make their stories new and special to us. Yet, I could not get into the story, finding the plot was not entirely believable and the characters unbalanced. At times, serious issues and situations were trivialized by crude di [...]


    24. Right when I thought I had my favorite story in this series(who doesn't have their favorite when reading a series?!!:-)), I read this story. Now I just don't know because they all were so amazing to read. This one was so much different than than the others but I personally think that is what made it such a fabulous story to read. Yes, of course it was about a couple who gets a second chance at love, but there were so many other issues in this book that had to be overcome. Other relationships tha [...]


    25. I am utterly ashamed of myself, this book has been in my possession for 4 solid years and not read!Lori Wilde may not have written a "cowboy romance" as some were maybe expecting being this is set in Texas but for me a lost love returned after 8 years of his ex believing him to be dead was quite a tasty reading treat.(view spoiler)[Gideon was soulful, wounded in spirit as well as body having lost a hand while fighting in Afghanistan, filled with bad memories which gave him nightmares and yet he [...]


    26. Book 4 in the Twilight Texas series finds Caitlyn Marsh raising her son in the small community of Twilight, Texas after her husband is killed in a freak accident. Not to fear though, because the members of the local garden club rally around her in support. That is until Local bad boy turned local war hero Gideon Garza returns from the war a scarred man.Caitlyn Marsh has found strength from her friends and fellow members of the local garden club in her hometown after her husband is killed by a li [...]


    27. while the ending to the book was a bit anticlimatic, the overall story was very heartwarming and relevant to today's society. In the world we now live in, people rarely think about the soliders overseas fighting to keep our country free. And while I don't personally agree with the whole concept of an army on foreign soil for no valid reason, I do have to admit that the US would not be the same country if people weren't fighting for our freedom. Gideon is a former Green Baret who returns home for [...]


    28. Book 4 in Twilight, Texas series.This was fun to read as always. Love the town and all its characters.
