Sunday Salon and Lookin Back Texas by Leanna Ellis

The Sunday Salon.com


* I finished reading "Looking' Back Texas" by Leanna Ellis


* It will be released September 2008 from B+H Books


* From the author's website: A devoted wife and mother must return to her hometown of Luckenbach, Texas to help her mother plan her father’s funeral. Trouble is – he isn’t dead! And neither are the secrets she buried there years ago.


*Betty Lynne Davidson is planning her husband’s funeral while overlooking one thing: he’s not dead.When Suzanne Mullins, forty-two, gets the call from her father to come back home to Texas because her mother has gone off the deep end, she knows it will mean having to look at the faulty foundations of their marriage as well as her own. Betty Lynne has always upheld a perfect facade of home and family, and Suzanne has followed suit. But her life with husband Mike and son Oliver is cracking under the pressure of its own unspoken history.Looking her past in the eye once and for all, Suzanne hopes that trusting in God’s love and mercy will set all of this craziness straight—even if it does mean having to watch her father give the eulogy at his own funeral


*"What a hoot! Leanna Ellis has a gift for storytelling and for quirky, fun, eccentric characters entirely true to the human experience."

* My Review: This is a great book. I did not want to put it down. It is full of relationships and some issues but still has several laugh out loud moments. It grabs you and does not let you go. There are few twists you may or may not see coming but in the end the ending is perfect (to me). I highly recommend getting this book as soon as it comes out. :)
