Overview

Texas Tech student Kyle Mango is attending a fraternity party when he meets Gretchen, an artsy animal lover whose independent spirit immediately sparks his attention. But after a month of bliss, they suddenly find themselves in rough waters. When Kyle inherits four oil wells from his uncle, he sees his affluence as an opportunity to impress Gretchen. But just before he makes his move, Gretchen hears news of an oil tanker spilling its load near the coast of Alaska. Leaving Kyle behind in Texas, she joins a group of campus activists in Alaska for the summer to clean oil from suffering birds.
Kyle is torn between managing his business--and being left lonely in the Lone Star state--and risking everything to fly to Alaska to pursue Gretchen. The young oil man soon discovers that oil slicks are nothing compared to relational slicks. The early bird may get the worm, but the oily bird can ruin romance! Through it all, Kyle explores faith in God and His power to change lives.

Written in first person narrative, this humorous Christian chick lit couples an oil man with an environmentalist. That's creativity! The Texas man, Kyle, and the tree-hugging Gretchen are strong characters who pull apart toward their own special interests while being drawn together romantically. Will they ever get together? If so, how?I looked forward to reading this novel. I've read two other books--Flabbergasted and A Delirious Summer by Ray Blackston, and he always has me chuckling as I read. This book is no different. Imagine an escape from a fraternity during a frat party. How could it happen with the brothers watching? What background music will be playing? Ah, you'll have to read the book to see the answers those questions.This is a fun read, with a serious theme: "What does God want from me?" Try it, you'll like it. Included is a Reading Group Guide.

The Last Mango in Texas, by Ray Blackston, is a refrshing novel. I enjoyed this novel from the first page until the last. The main character, Kyle Mango, is such a lively character that you are intrigued with him and his life instantly. Kyle is a student who meets the girl of his dreams. However, things soon become confusing. He faces the hardest decision of his life: Love or Money.
