Publisher's Summary

Being broke, unemployed, and stranded back in the tiny town of Pick, Texas, was not part of Jancy Wilson's plan. Yet here she is, watching her car literally go up in smoke - along with her last-ditch hope of staying with her cousin in Louisiana. When Jancy spies a Help Wanted sign hanging in the window of the quaint Strawberry Hearts Diner, the memories of the two years she spent there as a teenager - and the lure of the diner's beloved strawberry tarts - are enough to draw her in and plant her feet...but only temporarily.

Raised by parents who refused to settle anywhere for long, Jancy has never known what it is to have roots. Now that Jancy's swept up by the warmth and character of this quirky little community - and by the pull of an old crush - it's beginning to feel like home. She's making friends and even discovering the sweetness of falling in love. But when the town is threatened, Jancy knows it will take more than its legendary tarts to save it. Can she fight for this little Texas town - knowing she might not stay forever?

    "Worth the wait!"

    This book was worth the wait! Didn't want to stop listening. I think this was almost my favorite Carolyn Brown book yet.

    "Very fake southern accent"

    The story is excellent, however if you are from the south the accent will bother you. Southerners, of which I am one, do not talk that fast or with that much twang. A southern accent is very soft and slow. The story is well written.

    "LOVE IN A SMALL TOWN"

    Proof that family has more than one meaning and roots run deeper than we think. Loved this story and the narrator was amazing! Loved this book so much that I finished it and started it over again. Makes me want to pack up and move back to a small town. If you are looking for a funny, feel good story this is it.

    "Loved every word!"

    This is what family is supposed to be. Small town America at its finest. I want the strawberry tarts at my next get together.

    "Feel-good story, excellent narration"

    I don't usually take the time to write reviews, but this book deserves the praise. The plot is complex enough to hold your attention and the characters are well-developed. The narrator does an amazing job as well. If you are looking for a HEA that feels real, this is the book for you.

    Story
    "I'm hungry and want to eat at the diner."

    Y'all, after finishing this lovely audio book I want to live in Pick Texas and hang out at the diner have burger basket and a strawberry tart. This is a sweet story that carries you away from the ugliness that the world can bring.

    I thought the narrator did a fine job.

    Story
    "Enjoyable narration, horrible story"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, I would not. The main character is a flat, incredibly annoying, self pitying Mary Sue character with no depth. It was agony trying to get through the book.


    Has The Strawberry Hearts Diner turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Hopefully not, I've listened to other lighthearted reads that were much better than this one.


    Which character – as performed by Brittany Pressley – was your favorite?

    I enjoyed all the characters except Jancy, although that was no fault of Brittany Preslsey's. I would listen to other books she narrates.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Nope.


    Any additional comments?

    Would avoid all books by this author.
