    A Nice Story
    This is an old-fashioned, wholesome type story with the modern twist of reality TV. It's a light and predictable read, but it's sweet, without being sappy, and its characters are fun and feisty. The scene with Imagene and the roller coaster is a hoot!
  • Jennifer (Jacksonville FL)


    Talk of the Town leaves you with little to talk about
    A sweet story set in small town Texas, Talk of the Town is a typical romance with a touch of comedy. Although the accents are exaggerated almost beyond bearing, the characters are just innocent and loveable enough to make this a pleasant, blush-free read.

    We're Not Talking About This Town
    I was excited to finally win something; an opportunity for read and review a book. Sadly, my excitement didn't last more than a few pages. While the premise of the book, Hollywood hits the small town was good; the book didn't deliver. I found the reading tedious and often painful. The author took too long to get into the meat of the book, and was far too wordy. I'm sorry I didn't enjoy this book at all.
