Texas females should not sound like Gomer Pyle

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Probably not in audio version. Horrible narration.

What did you like best about this story?

Story okay.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Johanna Parker?

I don't know. Anybody that wouldn't be a constant distraction trying to make a character sound southern...and just making her sound stupid...or exactly like Gomer Pyle.

Do you think Word Gets Around needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

probably not...

Texans aren't hicks!

i really hated the way the narrator made the characters sound like complete hicks. The accent was definitely not a Texas accent. The story, however, was very good. If you can get past the accent, you will enjoy the story.

Enjoyable read

Lisa Wingate is one of my favorite authors! She usually combines a little humor with sting characters and human interactions. This book lacked the historical/folk lore, but came through with strong emotion . Another Great book!

The plot fell flat

I was excited to read this book, it looked cute and I listen to lots of christian books. This one fell short of my expecations. The author spent to much time delving into the problems of both leads of the book. The idea of the story was fun, but all energy seemed to go into talking about their demons and very little time into the plot. I would look for another read and not spend my money on this one.
