It's All Texas's Fault!

Happy Tuesday Everybody,

I know there's been a lot of silence on here lately. I've had some computer and blog trouble, so I put off posting for awhile so I could maybe determine the reasons for all the problems (I'm still working on that). There's also been a lot happening in my life (both good and not-so-good) so I've been pretty busy. I'm doing okay, though.

Today I have a treat for you--something I haven't done in awhile--an official blog book review! (P.S. I'm hoping to post book cover art on here, soon, there's a couple of things have to confirm before I can do that).

So let's get a move on this:

Christie Craig brings us back to Texas, where ex-cons turned exonerated citizens & P.I.s, Tyler, Dallas, and Austin hang out in their office, Only In Texas, ready and willing to right wrongs. Book 2 of the Hotter In Texas series, Blame It On Texas is what you’d expect from a Christie Craig novel--fun, romance, and laughter.

Zoe Adams is certain she’s not who she grew up thinking she was. But is she a Bradford, or is she completely nuts? Things from her childhood don’t add up…but she may have to hightail it back to Alabama before she finds out the truth; those threatening phone calls are making her nervous…and so is Only In Texas P.I., Tyler Lopez.

Tyler Lopez has had it with giving his heart. He did it once and it was a disaster. Now even though he's been exonerated of a crime he didn’t commit, people are still treating him, and his Only In Texas colleagues, Dallas and Austin, like criminals. In spite of all this, he wouldn’t mind getting involved with the pretty redhead he found rummaging around under his desk, but anything more than just a fling with Zoe is statistically a really bad idea as far as Tyler is concerned.

But when Zoe tells him her wild story about being the missing Bradford granddaughter, and the threatening phone calls, Tyler thinks it might be something worth looking into. He becomes even more convinced when someone tries to shoot Zoe in her apartment. Besides, it's a perfect set up. He can do his job, and maybe even start something casual with Zoe. After all, she won’t be in Texas for long. It’s perfect.

But things go south when Tyler’s heart betrays him. And as the mystery gets more and more convoluted, Tyler realizes he may not have a choice as to whether or not Zoe runs back to Alabama with his heart or if he keeps it.

Mystery, romance, bad guys, good guys, a battered cat named Lucky, and our old friend, Bud--the English Bulldog who sleeps in a coffin--are all here…and they’re all blaming the heat, romance, and mystery on Texas!

Blame It On Texas is available for purchase starting TODAY!
