About the Book
This is your summer novel! Easy read & a great beach book.
Sex, drugs and country music dominate San Antonio, Texas in the spring of 1980. With a daddy like Bobby, Sr. no one in their small town of Buena Vista, expects bad-boy, Bobby, Jr. better known as B.J. to amount to anything, until Janet Blake, arrives on assignment for her New York-based magazine. Facing prejudice and racism, she steals B.J.’s heart, much to the chagrin of his meddlesome Mama, Peggy Sue. When B.J. fails to treat Janet right, his betrayal turns her revenge into the novel you are about to read. Of course, a little romance and murder are mixed in for good measure.
Author's Note--Do opposites attract? Sometimes Texans and those of us from the Great Lakes State mix like oil and water. In the eighties, I moved to the Texas Hill Country from Detroit, Michigan. On more than one occasion, I was asked to join the KKK. I discovered the Civil War still divided me from some of my fellow Americans because as a Northerner, Southerners considered me a Yankee. An outsider and a woman, I felt the oppression of prejudice for the first time.
This novel is very loosely based on some of my experiences in Texas. I hope you enjoy this easy read, filled with satire and humor.
