Overview

The Blue-Ribbon Jalapeño Society Jubilee by Carolyn Brown

You Are Cordially Invited...Come early, eat until your buttons pop, and dance until you drop!

Miss Clawdy's Café has won the Jubilee blue ribbon every year since the dawn of time. This year, town matron Violet Prescott is going after that ribbon with an iron-clad determination only thinly disguised by her perfect coiffure and flawless manners, bless her heart.

It's time for café owners Cathy and Marty and their best friend Trixie to pull out their secret weapon. And this is where a lifetime of friendship, combined with just the right recipe at just the right time, might carry the day—or blow everything to smithereens.

Welcome to Cadillac, Texas, where the jalapeños are hot, the gossip is hotter, and at the end of the day, it's the priceless friendships that are left standing...

"Funny, frank, and full of heart...one more welcome example of Brown's Texas-size talent for storytelling."—USA TODAY Happy Ever After on One Hot Cowboy Wedding

"Brown revitalizes the Western romance with this fresh, funny, and sexy tale filled with likable, down-to-earth characters."—Booklist on Love Drunk Cowboy

"Brown's novel will warm your heart and bring you characters so real, you'll swear they're flesh and bone...A 5 Star Comfort Read!"—Love Romance Passion on Getting Lucky

THE BLUE-RIBBON JALAPENO SOCIETY JUBILEE by Carolyn Brown is an interesting Contemporary Women/Women's Fiction set in Cadillac,Texas. This was a fun read with a bit of humor,lots of eating,small town politics,friendships,drama,and the secret to growing Jalapenos. You will adore the ladies of the Miss Clawdy's Café,oh and they can work.Mouth watering,thought provoking foods,you want to reach into the book and smell the roses,sort-a speaking. Well you get my meaning. With a bit of vindictiveness from some patrons,you find you are got up in the town gossip as well as the fight to win another Blue Ribbon. Another hit for Ms. Brown, while I adore her Cowboys, I gotta say "The Blue-Ribbon Jalapeno Society Jubilee" was a great read also. Received for an honest review from the publisher.

Funny, charming, full of great small-town characters.

It was hard to keep track of all of the characters, since they were pretty much all introduced at once without much detail. I wouldn't call this a 'good' book, but it kept my interest. It was a light read about friends and family with some humor thrown in. There was a lot of sex talk, but no elaborate sex scenes.

I am sorry to say that this story and the characters were too unbelievable for me. I was raised in a small town and this much drama is too soap-opera-ish. None of the only one secondary character even seemed worthwhile to me and I found nothing humorous about these women and their so-called issues.

This was a dirty book, filled with cursing and sex and sexual innuendo. It is very fast-paced, so much that it didn't make any sense, which it exactly what you would expect about a book about a bunch of strumpets trying to hide their sexual foreys from their lovers' wives. It was offensive!

This free Friday book has 250 pages of story. There are about 30 pages of nonessentail information. The editing was better than most free books, although I did have a problem with chapter transitions. At times it seemed as if a page or two were missing at the end of the chapters. The page numbers all ran right though, so I am not sure of what caused this problem. I liked all the characters in this novel. It is the first book in a series, so this book had a cliff hanger conclusion, with the reader left hanging in all the friend's relationships except for Anna's. The next book costs $9.99. I think this is too much to spend on an e-book. This book had some violence. There was some spouse and child abuse and a few cat fights, but nothing very descriptive. There was very mild sex, a lot of humor and a curse word here and there, but nothing hard core. There is religious references, but no preaching, Bible verses or prayers. I enjoyed this book, but the few topics seemed to go on and on forever and this became tedious. It is also the reason I only rated this cute, chick lit book 3 stars. For ages 16 and up. AD

This could be anywhere in small town USA.

Disappointing end. Story is confusing at first bc there are so many big over the top personalities introduced. Sort of a hyped up Desperate Housewives. Would be much better stretched out over several books and time take to add depth to each char. Leaves you wanting after a long struggle through many story arcs

Enjoyed the story and characters. My only criticism of the book is the language. The swear words did not make the story any better.

Is it necessary to include foul language to make a book interesting?? It certainly didn't work for this book.

Carolyn Brown hit the nail on the head with this book of small town goings on! A must read for anyone who needs to laugh from being to end. And a BIG thank you for the preacher lady and her works of kindness to women in need! Read the book to find out what that kindness is. Very much looking forward to the next book!

A very cute story. I loved it!

It would be nice to get a real review without all the plot spoilers giving away the entire book. They are so rude. That being said, the book itself was ok, the language used in it was very vulgar and not needed in my opinion. Too many characters introduced too soon and it was hard to keep track of them until halfway thru the book. Would not recommend this book due to the cussing.

 I didn't want to put this book down to go to work (and I work in a library, so that's saying something - lol).  I loved the relationship that the three main women had - Cathy and Marty and twin's, and admit that they are two halves of a whole - opposite in everyway - and Trixie has been their best friend since they were little.  Their momma's were best friends before them.  They will stand up to anyone and anything to have each other's back, but at the same time they give each other enough space to make the right decision before stepping in.  Notice I said "right" decision?  Because if they don't make the right one - you can be sure they are gonna hear about it!    They share most of life's victories and secrets with each other - each holding a little something back that they have not shared with anyone.  But like in any small town, usually someone knows something about it.  There is much gossip here - some true, most not - but all of it sure to bring a smile to your face.   I had recently watched parts of an old movie "Something to Talk About" with Julia Roberts, Kyra Sedgewick and Dennis Quaid.  I couldn't help but picture Julia and Kyra in the role of the twins in this book. (But after reading her cast of characters in her interview, I like them much better.  And I love Shirley MacLaine as Aunt Agnes!)  It would make a great series on T.V. as you know when you put the book down that the gossip in town isn't going to end!   Like they say, everything is big in Texas, and they go over the top with it all  - good food, gossip, politicians, cheating husbands, loyalty, family, friendship.  This was a feel good book for me and I look forward to reading more by Carolyn in this new genre for her!  Great job!

It's been some time since I laughed so much reading a book. I'm about to start reading the second in this three series book about Cadillac, Texas. But I have one complaint. Barnes and Noble doesn't carry the last book in the series! Wake up, guys, and smell the chili!

This story was hard to follow at first with no real character introductions. The premise of the club is silly and the puritanical values are dated and annoying. There are many humorous situations which keep the story lively. I want to be just like Aunt Agnes when i am old... without her this book would have been a total dud.
