    "Mouthwatering fiction."

    I loved this novel by Lisa Wingate, the first of her audiobooks I've bought. The story is cute and the characters warm and 3 dimensional (not always the case!). The premise is interesting and the author makes falling in love with the Texas hill country easy, and from the comfort of your own bed (in my case anyway). I recommend this audiobook to lovers of southern fiction and good food, indeed to all readers. Most enjoyable.

    "Very Pleasant listen"

    This book was very pleasant and a very good story. Not a waste of your time. It makes you think about what is important in your day to day living. The Narrator was very good. She has a smooth mellow voice that made the listen that much more pleasant.
    I bought the book for a 4.95 special and it was definitely worth it. Not sure if I would have used a credit but it was a good story.

    Story
    "Enjoyable Listen"
    What did you love best about Texas Cooking?

    It's a refreshing departure from all the violence and tension out there. A sweet story with Christian undertone. The story is plausible enough to have actually happened.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The overview of rural life and the rewards of being part of a mostly tolerant and generous community.


    What three words best describe Johanna Parker’s performance?

    Young adequate narrator


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Many parts bought a smile and a laugh....nice!


    Any additional comments?

    If you,re looking for an easy, enjoyable listen with a sprinkle of old fashioned morality thrown in - this is it.

    "Odd Title for Such a Wonderful Book!"

    I love when I am surprised with an excellent book. This It happens often when I purchase a discounted audiobook 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 what is most important. It’s a real feel good saga.

    The narration is fantastic. During a scene that takes place at an auction, you will just be blown away by Johanna Parker’s skills. I also went to see what other books she has read because I was equally as impressed.

    Well worth the money!!!

    Story
    "SHADES OF GRAY WITHOUT THE SMUT?"

    I found myself comparing this sweet little romance with the self-consciously shocking Shades of Gray: similar readability, modern relationship expectations hungering for something more traditional and deeper, mystery man love object. I definitely prefer this book to the soft porn novel. The narrator's voice works well with this simple, sincere little tale grounded in solid moral values.
    I also enjoyed reminiscing about Texas Hill Country through the writer's eyes. There's just enough local color to keep me engaged. However, another Texas based audiobook gets much higher marks for me, Boy Kings of Brownsville by Domingo Martinez. That book evokes the real Texas for me.

    Story
    "Texan romance"

    Food barely comes into this easy and enjoyable listen But, read with enthusiasm and commitment, it is pleasantly escapist as our non-cook questions her urban professional lifestyle with its associated disillusionments and dishonesty. Within a few days, she finds her true life path in a small town in Texas where people are honest, accepting and community minded.

    Then, there's the little matter of Mr Tall Dark and Handsome (enigmatic, but of course).
