Heaven, Texas | [Susan Elizabeth Phillips]

Heaven, Texas

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....

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?

    "Great Listen"

    If you have read or listened to some of SEP other books about the Chicago Stars football team then you will enjoy Bobby Tom Denton's story with Gracy. I didn't laugh as much as some of her other books and the ending was kind of corny but I still give it 5 stars. It is a great escape and with Anna Fields narration you just can't go wrong.

    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".

    I enjoyed the two main characters in this book even though they were hard to believe at times. Again Anna Fields did a great job.

    I dig that there was a side story. And of course Anna Fields' awesome reading lives on.

    Story
    "Susan Elizabeth Phillips is a Goddess with a pen!"
    If you could sum up Heaven, Texas in three words, what would they be?

    Hot, Quirky, Texas


    What other book might you compare Heaven, Texas to and why?

    Natural Born Charmers Also by S.E.P. it has a similar vibe. Deep without being full of itself, yet still managing to be poignant and amusing at the same time.


    What about Anna Fields’s performance did you like?

    Anna Fields was an artist. She is greatly missed and her voice will forever be SEP's books to me.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    both. I managed to do both several times while listening for the first time.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this story and everything else by this author. The narration is gold.

    These are fun easy reads, I like that there are Chicago references (being from the Chicago area).

    Story
    "Fun in the tenth power!"
    What did you love best about Heaven, Texas?

    Bobby Denton is a charmer, everyone's best friend and confidant. When Gracie comes into his life, she has everything to prove to herself and her boss and sweeps him under her beautiful spell. Beauty is defined on the inside of course, and Gracie is a stunner!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The scene where Bobby Denton makes the big announcement in front of all his friends is heartbreaking as Gracie finally makes him realize what the real problem is: his denial of his deep true feelings for her.

    "Choose another of her titles, this one is hackney."
    Any additional comments?

    I recently purchased this older SEP book to listen to on a long drive. I have enjoyed many of her books in the past. However, this one seemed like the same old story with different names. If you haven't read many of her books, choose another one. Nobody's Baby is still a favorite of mine.

    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.
