Everything is calm in Cadillac, Texas until Aunt Agnes declares war on Violet Prescott, the president of the Blue-Ribbon Jalapeno Society, just in time for the annual jubilee. But after the festivities—and the hostilities—are over, it’s four friends who are left standing, proving once again that friendship is forever.
This book drew me in right away with its whimsical cover and southern flair title. The Texas locale was just right for these sassy ladies.
The story centers around Marty and her sister Cathy who are both part of The Blue-Ribbon Jalapeño Society along with a hilarious cast of characters. At first the book was a little overwhelming. We enter the story during a Society meeting and I really had to pay attention to who’s who and what the relationships are, which was more like work than fun. But, once I got the gist of how the characters relate, the story was enjoyable. What really stands out in this novel is not the main characters but the minor ones who add spice and laughter to the story. Aunt Agnes is priceless!
This book is chock full of scrapbooking, good southern food and a huge helping of southern sass. Of course, all is not well in this little Texas town where everybody knows your name and friendship and family ties run deep. Cat fights abound, there’s some spicy sex with exes and all shenanigans are done with the politeness only well-bred southern families can conjure.
A fun book that really takes friendships to heart.

We’re all history buff’s here in the Lonely Owl’s nest and we always enjoy history lessons that are made more enjoyable by someone’s awesome creativity no matter the outlet. Here’s a creative take on 5 of history’s misconceptions.
Just as fun as the first installment in Molly Harper’s Naked Werewolf series, The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf is sure to lighten your mood and remind you how much fun budding romance can be!
Baring It All Generations of werewolves have been secretly residing in a secluded valley a stone’s throw from Grundy, Alaska. So when a snooping Outsider comes to Grundy to investigate rumors of lycanthropic shenanigans in the area, the valley’s pack alpha, Maggie Graham, resolves to chase him away, even if doing so takes a quick bite on the butt. What a pity that researcher Nick Thatcher turns out to be so drool-worthy, and that his kisses make Maggie want to sit up and beg. Maggie just can’t seem to convince Nick to leave . . . and even worse, she can’t convince herself to stay away from him. Cross-species dating is problem enough for a harried alpha female, but on top of that, a rival group of werewolves is trying to move into the valley. With interpack war threatening, Maggie can’t afford to be distracted. Combining romance and a career can be tough for anyone; for a werewolf in love with a human, it may be disastrous. . . .
This installment in the series picks right up where the first left off. It gets a fresh take though by changing the perspective to Maggie. The great thing is we still get all the great characters from the first book. I was really skeptical about reading this, wondering if I would enjoy it since I really enjoyed the first and didn’t really want to move on from the main characters introduced. I got a pleasant surprise! I liked this one just as much!
We get introduced to some great new characters too. Maggie’s view gives us some insight into the pack hierarchy without being bogged down by technicalities.
All of the Maggie Harper books I’ve read so far have been fun reads. They’re easy-going, girly books that are perfect for a beach read or to get you through a winter slump. This book features the same recipe of a heaping amount of love, a sprinkle of sex, a dash of comedy and a little mystery.
Great book…great fun!

Book Review: And One Last Thing… by Molly Harper
I’d rather read a book than…………
…………..spend the day getting the outside ready for winter! I just hate to see my back yard full of flowers and beautiful color gone for good. I really don’t look forward to the snow that will eventually turn everything white.
I must say though, it was nice to get outside on such a beautiful day and work as a family and I was glad to check this chore off my list.
