Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I really enjoy her books but this one was rather boring. Not really in line with her romance books. Does tell a fun story of a woman getting revenge on her cheating ex. I actually had a hard time finishing, I kept waiting for something to happen. Plus, a lot of characters that didn't have important roles in the book but you had to keep track of them.
A Heap of Texas Trouble is the first women's fiction book I have read Carolyn Brown. I wish this had not been labeled as romance because I kept looking for the relationship... But this is a cute book of an independent woman getting revenge on her ex-husband, by besting him at the annual chili competition in her small town. Carlene has finally divorces her ex, and while most her family supports her, some of them are less than thrilled. I liked Ms. Brown's sense of humor but wish there had been more romance. I was given a free copy for an honest review.
