Series: Daily Texas
Imagene Doll loves her town of Daily, Texas, but things are lonelier without her beloved husband. Life seems dull. At least until that fancy-dressed woman pulls into town, looking terrified and glamorous all at once. Soon life's not the least bit boring as Imagene--and the rest of Daily--find themselves at the center of a media maelstrom...with a young girl's future on the line.
This novel is laugh-out-loud funny and quick to read. Lisa Wingate does an excellent job of phonetically spelling out the way in which the people talk consistently and in such a way that you can practically hear them talking in that Texas drawl. This author also does a remarkable job of creating all of the quirky and endearing characters one would expect from a small town. With the ghost of the Daily Hotel lurking around and tales of posthumous visits from Elvis, even the town takes on a personality of its own.
This is such a cute story that is more than just a romanceits about friendship, big dreams, and having courage, too. The wit and charm of the small town created was truly inspired and translated to the novel as a whole. I would recommend this book to anyone who is in the mood for a laugh, a budding love, and some characters readers will want to open the book back up to visit over and over again. -- Shannon Potelicki, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
