My Review of Don’t Mess With Texas
This book was fun and really a joy to read. There are actually two stores involved here and it’s great that they bring in a small romance from the outside. They do work together as the side romance involves the main characters brother so it’s really very fitting. I love how things revolve around more then one couple. Don’t Mess With Texas is a very fun read and you really don’t know what is going to happen next. It’s a ride you will enjoy right to the end.
JANE GRAVES (HEARTSTRINGS AND DIAMOND RINGS)
HE’S THE MAN OF HER DREAMS . . . In a world full of frogs, Alison Carter is determined to find her prince. Maybe her dating past is more Titanic than Love Boat, but she’s seen enough happy marriages to know that true love is possible. No matter what, she won’t give up on happily-ever-after. If she can’t find Mr. Right, she’ll simply hire someone who can. …
Plano, Texas is a perfect setting for my series because it’s an exercise in contrast, just as my characters are. In West Plano, people live in McMansions, drive Lexus SUVs, drink a lot of Starbucks coffee, and play a lot of golf. West Plano is upper-class Texas living with a sprinkle of glitter and a swimming pool in every backyard. East Plano used to be home only to blue collar folks who live in fifty-year-old tract homes with pickup trucks out front. Then the light rail came through and connected Plano to downtown Dallas, and the old downtown area was revitalized with trendy condos, restaurants, and bars. East Plano is middle-class Texas living with a touch of urban cool.
Alison Carter from HEARTSTRINGS AND DIAMOND RINGS owns a condo in downtown Plano, while the hero of that book, Brandon Scott, lives in a Victorian house on the edge of downtown he inherited from his grandmother. Because of its diversity, Plano, Texas gives me a great opportunity to show who my characters are by where they choose to live.
