“My Big Fat Texas Wedding” by Katie Lane is book number eight in the “Deep in the Heart of Texas” series. This can be read as a standalone, but I want to go back and read the others in this series. This is Super Bowl Champion, Austin Reeves and school teacher, Mia Cates’ story.
This is a great second chance romance quick read. The story takes place in a small west Texas town. The descriptions of the people and town reminded me so much of the west Texas towns I’ve lived in years ago. It made me homesick. I could relate to the way Austin described driving back into his hometown. “Dust devils swirled amid the mesquite like mini tornadoes, and tumbleweeds bounced across the two-lane highway… He smiled. Damn, it was good to be home.”
Austin is engaged to a movie star and he is back home to get things organized for his upcoming wedding. When he arrives in town, he doesn’t get the welcome from his hometown people that he expected. The town people have their own agenda and nothing is going to get in their way. Don’t under-estimate what small town communities can do. They were very clever and sneaky. You will be laughing at what the people of Bramble do to manipulate their way. There is something about purple hair.
Mia had always been attracted to Austin. She never felt she was deserving so she acted like she hated him. Now, that Austin is back in town and will be married soon, Mia knows she has to move on. Well, moving on doesn’t always work out.
Austin and Mia get put in situations where they end up spending time together. The chemistry between them was steamy and hot. Will they ignore this chemistry and attraction between them?
Katie Lane’s stories never disappoint! She has a unique way of getting your attention right from the start and keeping it throughout the book. So, get cozy and escape for a little while with Austin, Mia, and the wonderful people of Bramble, Texas. A fun and entertaining read!
