  • This is the first book I ve read by Lisa Wingate I had never even heard of her until I bought the 2nd of this series from someone selling some used paperbacks I picked this one up to read before the one I purchased, and I m glad to find I enjoyed it I ve been a big fan of Debbie Macomber for the last year or two so I find these to be sort of similar.


  • I enjoyed the slightly flowery descriptions of the Texas hill country while listening to this sweet romance The characters were REAL characters It was so easy to picture the people going about their rural lives and valuing the little things that city life often passes by in haste The relationship between the main characters was almost secondary to all the relationships and history in the telling.


  • More of a typical romance than Good Hope Road and Tending Roses, but still one of my favorites because of the bits of wisdom mixed in.


  • I read this for BookCrossing a while back and here s what I wrote I finished reading this last night, and am quite contented There s something about a well crafted love story, that can be satisfying, and this one did just that The depth that Lisa Wingate brought into her story was a welcome surprise I d read of this genere if, like this book, there was less of the heaving bosom and rock hard manhood, and of the exploration of true heart and true soul.I have a habit of using little sticky marke [...]


  • Ahhh, Lisa Wingate is such a breath of fresh air From back cover No one is surprised than Colleen Collins when she s offered a job writing fluffy magazine articles about rural Texas cooking The big city investigative reporter knows nothing about goats, prickly pears, or peafowl, and to make matters worse, she can t even cook But thanks to a political scandal that cost Collie her job, her boyfriend, and now with this demeaning assignment her self respect, she has no choice but to drag herself ou [...]


  • If you want to sigh and feel good after you read a book, you will LOVE this story This is Book 1 in the Texas Hill Country 3 book series also Lone Star Cafe and Over the Moon at the Big Lizard Diner The character is a city slicker and her trials and laughter inducing reactions to small towns and the people who populate them are just perfect As a former city slicker, I could so relate The love story is CLEAN thank goodness and you don t miss the TMI of most current romances I guarantee you will l [...]


  • A contemporary romance about Callie Collins, a D.C newspaper writer, who has come to Texas to write articles on Texas cooking because she s out of work At first scornful of being in Nowhere, Texas , she soon grows to love the slow pace of life there and True McKitrick When the opportunity of her life back in D.C comes along, she has a choice to make to follow her mind or to follow her heart.


  • Colleen a.k.a Collie finds herself without a job, a boyfriend and in a very dark apartment She s a journalist who did the right thing and is now being sent by an editor friend to Texas to write about food something she eats, not cooks and finds than she ever thought possible.


  • Really enjoyed listening to this novel, great narrator If you re in need of a sweet story and happy ending, this is a good choice



  • I liked this book It occasionally veered strongly into Sapsville, but at least the main character recognized it I can relate to a character who is probably sappier that she would like to admit.





  • The characters Lame The plot Cheesy What was there to love about this book Not much Collie Collins no lie , the protagonist, has been given some pity freelance work writing floozy articles about a few little towns in Texas Having just emerged on the losing side of a big political scandal in the journalism world, she accepts it begrudgingly However, when she finally ends up in San Saline and gets to know the residents there, she winds up liking it and the hunky cowboy who runs the local newspaper [...]


  • I love when I am surprised with an excellent book This It happens often when I purchase a discounted book and come up with an enjoyable read and another much loved author to enjoy I immediately put the rest of this series of her books on my wish list If all chick lit were this good I d read it all the time.A story about an out of work journalist who takes a job well below her abilities because it s the only job she can get, only to find that it leads her to on a great adventure in finding out wh [...]


  • Someone loaned me this and it was my first exposure to the author It will be my last, just not my kind of book I realize that some people love small town life and the Texas scenery sounds beautiful but it s too cute how everyone loves living without modern conveniences I agree that some people can get carried away by technology but the implication is that if you like creature comforts you re verging on immoral and evil.The plot and the ending are telegraphed from page one which is true of most b [...]


  • Texas Cooking is like what Colleen calls her articles about San Saline fluff Wingate descriptions of the landscape and the people are so captivating that I want to go there and see for myself.The first few chapters reminded me of Lynn Austin s Wonderland Creek But later, the romance and fluff took over The romance is sweet with True being a typical perfect male.The narrator, Johanna Parker did a great job on the Texan accents no over the top stuff.


  • I just listened to this book for the second time on a recent road trip from Kansas to my own home in the Texas Hill Country and I loved it just as much this second time through Driving along I35 I saw the exits to all the places Lisa mentions in her book Made me feel that much closer to the characters and places It also made me think about the present and making the most of what I have and who I have and about cherishing it all


  • Light, and maybe not outstanding, a little corny, but I remember being a little sorry when I finished so I must have got into it a little than I thought I think it must have been written when the angel craze was sweeping through America, so we got treated to hints of angels which was a little annoying, but I liked the standard rugged cowboy , slightly scatterbrained redhead , and other typecasted characters They had little twists


  • I didn t quite like this as much as some of Lisa s other books, but this was a light, entertaining and predictable read that felt like a made for tv movie It was just what I needed after slogging through a 700 page fantasy novel all summer long I do wish some of those Texas recipes had been included


  • Fun read I loved the characters in this novel The main character, Laura, is faced with making a life changing decision in her career She winds up in central Texas, far away from her big city job in the East This is an uproariously funny story that will leave you with a good feeling in the end.


  • I didn t actually READ this bookI listened to it I have to say, I quite enjoyed the story It was a bit predictable in the end, but perhaps that s because I ve read a later book in this same series I have enjoyed all the Lisa Wingate books I ve read however, I do prefer her later books to her earlier.


  • Even though the story was somewhat predictable, Johanna Parker s voice wrapped around me like a warm hug, and Lisa Wingate s description of the countryside and people actually made me want to visit Texas And that is really saying something


  • It was a good story with a lot of background on a small town in Texas The story seemed to get a bit preachy about slowing down, following your heart, etc here and there Not a lot to the romance as it seemed like a finding yourself story.


  • I would have liked character development as it felt a lot like a bunch of vignettes of people rather than a real story about the main character I think San Saline sounds like an interesting place with fun people, so the author did a good job with those stories


  • I really enjoyed reading this book that was set in the hill county of Texas i knew all the towns that were mentioned in tbe book, but the one that Collie went to visit to do her articles for the women s magazine Lisa twists in fun and adventure and a love story into this book.


  • Loved it Lisa Wingate is one of my favorite authors I wish I had know beforehand though that her books were kind of a series I would have read them in order so I wouldn t have already know the outcome of this book.



  • This was a fun book but VERY predictable I DO enjoy Lisa Wingate s writing and it was a cute story but I didnt like it as much as some of her others.
