Anne Carey about this book: Great summer novel, this is your beach book! Easy read filled with satire and humor. 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. The first thing I saw was a welcome sign stating, "Ni$$er don't let the sun set on your a** in our town." On more than one occasion, I was asked to join the Ku Klux Klan. I discovered the Civil War still divided me from some of my fellow Americans because as a Northerner, Southerners consider me a "damn 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. Synopsis: In the small town of Buena Vista, Texas in the spring of 1980, a Yankee steals bad-boy BJ Brayden's heart but when BJ fails to treat Janet right, her revenge for his betrayal turns into the novel you are about to read.
