Publisher's Summary

It seems like an easy assignment for an assertive but sweet woman like Gracie Snow: track down her friend, Bobby Denton, a famous ex-jock, and bring him to Heaven (Texas, that is) to shoot a movie. How could he refuse a glamorous offer like that?

Easy, if you've got a big ego, a 1957 T-Bird, and prefer cruising the highways for girls. Still, Bobby can't get Gracie, an angel, out of his mind. Why not head to Heaven, raise a little hell, and let Gracie look out for the consequences?

    Story
    "A book for those that are a glutton for punishment"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Nothing.


    Has Heaven, Texas turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. It is in a category of its own.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Anna Fields?

    She wasn't bad. I wouldn't hold this book against her.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Heaven, Texas?

    Where to start...? How about from beginning to end?


    Any additional comments?

    This book isn't like the others in the series that have some lighthearted dialogue between the characters. In this book there is no respect shown towards the heroine or the women reading this book.The hero of this story isn't just "afraid of love", he has no respect for our supposed heroine. The hero doesn't just ignore her or put her off he is down right HATEFUL towards her. It was hard to get to the end of this book and so disappointing for those of us that started out liking this series. I read, Match Me If You Can first and thought I would go back and start at the beginning, which was a mistake.

    I'm done with Susan Elizabeth Phillips, the "Misogynist".

    Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.

    "Wooie"

    BT is as hot as it gets. This is a must get, but I own all of SEP books. All her Chicago stars books are Heaven. My all time fave "it had to be you" is still a great listen after all these years.

    Story
    "What a letdown."

    While the story had promise it was ruined by the characters. I couldn't stand either Bobby Tom or Gracie. Bobby Tom was a male chauvinist pig, who thinks he is god's gift to women. He basically thinks he is doing Gracie a favor by being with her. Gracie is worse she has no self-pride and is so desperate for BT. She falls in love with him within two days and does everything to make sure she pleases him even as she thinks she isn't good enough for BT. She is a doormat, which I can't stand women who don't stick up for themselves even/especially if they are not perfect. I contemplated not finishing the book several times, what kept me going is I wanted to find out how the mother's story ended. There were some funny parts and I didn't feel bored which is why I would give it 2.5 stars which is low for me because I usaully am pretty happy to please. It is just my overall dislike of the characters that have ruined this book for me. I have read It Had to Be You and Match Me if You Can and had high hopes for this book since I liked those two. Heaven, Texas has made me very indecisive about the rest of the series or anything at all from this author. The narrator was clear and I enjoyed her voice even if she sounds like Ellen DeGeneres to me.

    "One of my favs!"

    I like this series a lot... but Heaven, Texas is probably one of my favorites. I love the characters in this one... and the story-line!

    Story
    "Love this Author and Anna Fields narration."
    What did you love best about Heaven, Texas?

    The characters and the narration of the late Anna Fields. She has a way of making the stories have that real life feel.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The most interesting is the way the characters interact. The least is the sex. Way too much detail. But that's just a personal preference. One other thing I really didn't like was the way that Susie got with Wayland at first. I felt that she would never let herself be coerced in that way.


    Have you listened to any of Anna Fields’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I listened to her years ago in "Ain't She Sweet". This is the book that got me hooked on audiobooks. I have to say I haven't heard one narrated by her that disappointed.

    "Clearly I am the exception"

    I found the characters to be weak, and superficial, the women down right whiny and irritating. I have loved all of SEP's books but, this one was painfully boring. The women were such whimps and I expected more from Bobby Tom's story then some whiny and juvenile man.

    Story
    "Loved this book and the narrator!"

    The first in the Chicago Stars series was great (Maybe This Time) and I think the 2nd (Heaven Texas) was even better. SEP has such a great way with making you fall in love with all the people in the books and you start to really care about them and what happens to them. Bobby Tom Denton was great as a side roll in the first book and he is even better as the male star in this book. And who could not love Gracie with her cute awkwardness, have to love a regular (non-bombshell) female star. I thought that I would not like that each book focuses on a new couple but since they all have to do with the Chicago Stars and we get little glimpses of our old favorites I think I will like having a fresh couple to focus on with each new book. I have already bought the 3rd book in this series and cannot wait to start it. If you are looking for great chick lit with true emotions and some steamy scenes then this is a great series to try.
