Former Army brat turned journalist Laura Draper, who sent her friend on assignment in Texas in Texas Cooking [BKL S 15 03], is now there herself to oversee a recently acquired magazine. A true workaholic, the 36-year-old is in denial about her life until she receives a breakup call from her boyfriend and then has a minibreakdown outside the Lone Star Cafe, overwhelmed by her mother's death, her father's depression, and her rapidly ticking biological clock. Inside, elderly twins offer her coffee with a secret ingredient and old-fashioned buttermilk pie, but the real attraction is their nephew, Graham. A former soldier, he is facing demons of his own, but the two do discover joy. But Laura believes that she'd be crazy to give up her fast-track lifestyle for a man she only met a few days ago, even though she has discovered more about herself in this interlude than ever before. Wingate reprises a mythical, healing Texas in her latest novel and offers another stellar story about love and connection.

It has romance, texans, and it is written by an incredible writer. This isn't one of my favourite books. Don't get me wrong it still is really good. Check out the previous book for an amazing example of writing.
