As a Texan I always enjoy reading books based on Texans or in Texas because I know the characters have to be interesting. Texas is very well known for it's tall tales ;)
I love a good let's work together until we fall in love mystery too so I think I would enjoy this book very much. The book is beautiful. Makes me want to visit Honey Creek Cafe and I can't wait to see what Mrs Thomas has to offer in this book of hers.
