Publisher's Description

Lauren Eldridge had avoided returning home to Daily, Texas, until her father confesses to being in over his head. Paying back an old favor, he's invested in a horse that's supposed to be the star of a new Hollywood movie. Only the horse won't behave. And Lauren is the best trainer in the state. Convinced to return, she soon finds more than she bargained for when the movie's screenwriter turns out to be leading-man handsome.

This movie may be Nate Heath's last shot at turning his career around. He didn't have high hopes at first, but the town of Daily may be just what everyone needs to find hope and healing. And maybe even a little romance.

Author Bio

Lisa Wingate is a popular inspirational speaker, magazine columnist, and national bestselling author of several books including Tending Roses, Talk of the Town, Good Hope Road, Drenched in Light, and A Thousand Voices. Her work was recently honored by the Americans for More Civility for promoting greater kindness and civility in American life. Lisa and her family live in Clifton, Texas.

Publisher's Weekly

Evangelical Christian novelist Wingate introduced readers to the delightfully homespun what-you-see-is-what-you-get town of Daily, Tex., in Talk of the Town. In this sequel about the city's happenings and residents, Wingate expands upon the story line and offers readers more lovingly presented Texas talk, charm and romance. Wounded by the death of her husband, Lauren Eldridge is summoned back to Daily by her daddy, who's gotten himself into a financial pickle. Trying to pay an old debt by risking the ranch, Lauren's father asks his daughter to come home and tame a wild horse before the movie he's invested in starts shooting in Daily. Lauren's first instinct is to run anywhere but home. Still, she braves the emotional journey to help her father, remembering how he supported her after the accident that killed her spouse. What Lauren discovers back home amid familiar faces and places is forgiveness, love and a big, Texas-sized romance. Wingate's text is funny, to be sure, but a predictable story line detracts from what could have been a more poignant tale. (Feb.)Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

    So, I didn't have high expectations going into this book. It was my first by Lisa Wingate and I was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed it more then I thought I would and the plot kept me turning the pages, (rather quickly I might add) and I enjoyed it enough to say that I would read more from Lisa. She's a good writer, although I found she had the characters explaining quite a lot of stuff in their thoughts...

    Altogether, I don't think I'd read it again, but I would recommend it to fans of contemporary fiction who like a little Hollywood thrown into Texas.

    Once again, I was totally involved with the characters and read the book almost straight through. I did have to sleep some. The Daily, TX characters seem like friends that I don't see often and I find myself wondering what they are doing now. Maybe the next book will tell me if the ranch for children materializes. I hope this series continues on and on. But, I will say that the covers don't really do the stories justice. They look like the typical, shallow romance, but there is so much depth there.

    The story was cute, but I didn't like how each chapter kept bouncing back to the other main character.

    I just finished reading this book and it is a steal at $2.99! I enjoyed the way Lisa Wingate took you in and showed you how great everything could be. I laughed and I cried. I highly recommend this book.

    This novel was my first experience with Lisa Wingate, and it was a great one. As I mentioned in a previous review, Lisa does Christian overtones without hitting me over the head with a Bible, which I always appreciate and try to emulate in my own writing. However, more importantly, in Lauren and Nathan, Lisa has given us two real people with fabulous jobs, personalities, and conflicts to deal with. Nathan, in particular, was easy to identify with because we're both writers, though I don't do screenplays. I also liked how Lisa handled Lauren's guilt without overblowing it, as some authors tend to do. The realism of these characters, as well as the unique backdrop in which they find themselves (on a movie set, but without stereotypical glitz), makes for a great romance. I'd have liked to see more time spent on the actual movie, but otherwise, this was a thoroughly enjoyable book. I'm hoping Lisa can give us at least one more visit to Daily.
