Publisher's Summary

While watching TV one day, Ruby Kincaid catches sight of her runaway daughter, Violet, in a commercial. Quicker than a jackrabbit, Ruby makes up her mind to head straight for Tinseltown and reclaim her wayward daughter - even if she has to lasso her.

MoonPies and Movie Stars is Amy Wallen's snappy, sassy, and sensational debut novel. A hysterical romp across the Southwest, it pits a spunky Texan mom against the star-studded power of Hollywood.

    "Okay"

    Fun to listen to. Not an "edge of the seat" story. I guess I was expecting more. Oh, well! Next time.

    Story
    "l wouldn't call it a hysterical romp"

    The book sounded fun and interesting but I felt it was not very funny and I was embarrassed by how the characters came off as stereotypical redneck hicks.

    "Tried to finish but..."

    I tried to finish the book but the story moved too slow for me and it was suppose to be a fast-paced romp across the Southwest but an hour into it Ruby was still in the bowling alley. There were way too many adjectives, meaningless dialog and details that seemed to be there only to "prove" it is a true southern story (it seemed like the story was there and the editor sent the author back to make it longer by adding southern colloquialisms; therefore make for a larger book). I usually like a story that moves faster into the meat of the storyline. The sentence structure was very sophomoric. I couldn't finish the book, I found my mind wandering, maybe I'll try at another time. I loved the southern accent of the narrator but I don't think it is a natural one. I gave it 2 stars only because of the sentence structure and I couldn't bear to finish.
