    " Part of a series. This author is awesome! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carrie | 12/23/2013

    " This was a sweet book about a woman from DC who finds herself (literally and figuratively) in a small town in Texas. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 12/8/2013

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janalynn | 12/6/2013

    " fun/cute fanciful romance no real surprises and no smut. "

    " This was just a fun summer read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 12/4/2013

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emaly | 6/8/2013

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 A | 5/10/2013

    " 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... "

    " Her whole Texas series is just delightful! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Norma | 2/28/2013

    " Wingate's Texas series was a disappointment. All three books in the series have the same basic formula fiction plot and ending. I expected more from her after the Tending Roses series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandy | 2/26/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alissa | 11/5/2012

    " This is the first book in a series in which I read the third one a while ago. I wish I had started with this one because some of the characters from the third were introduced in this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kasey | 5/1/2012

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam | 4/29/2012

    " 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. "
