Like others, the title and glossy Old English font in the title caught my attention. I picked the book up, read the back, and then put it back on the shelf to continue to browse. In the end, I came back and picked this book up and thought I'd give it a shot. Seeing that the plot took place in Texas and I am a Texan, I thought I would enjoy the setting. Anyways, I got home, read it, thought it was poorly written and kept reading, waiting for the climax, or interesting character to surface, but nothing like this happened. Each chapter ended with a "So we headed to the car and drove home" or "So I closed the door and went in"...it just sounded really inexperienced. I was tempted to stop in the middle and start a new novel, but I finished it to the end, and was glad when it was over. I never ever post reviews, but like someone else said, if you really want to read this, buy it on paperback or even buy a used version...there are much better books out. Good luck to the author, hope your second book is better.

I bought this book after watching a few episodes of the ABC hit GCB based on this book. I love the show and couldn't wait to see how the author truly intended it to be about.
It starts out VERY slow. But if you can get half way, it does pick up and you see some of the conniving mean spirted GCBs in true action.
It is confusing at first after watching the show first, some of the names are the same, some are different. I did find it difficult at first to follow b/c 3 of the characters inthe book (and there aren't many characters) all started w/the letter S. So that threw me off for awhile. It is prob best to read the book FIRST then watch the show, otherwise you may be a bit disappointed. The show is much more exciting and funny, but the book does have its moments.

For those who believe this book (and show) is ANTI CHRISTIAN, you are VERY WRONG!!!!!!!!!!! This is a book about people who go around acting like perfect Christians but yet act like *itches the rest of the their time. The main character states..you can be a good Christian or you can be a *itch, but you can't be both!!!!
I believe we ALL know the type she is talking about.

Don't let the name or other people's review persuade your own opinion. It is ABOUT TIME someone finally came out with a book and tv show highlighting what so many of us have to suffer thru...the wrath of GCBs ;)

I initially began reading this book after I watched the first episode of G.C.B. I was born and raised in Texas so I was a bit anxious to see what type of stereotypes this book provided. I could not even put the book down! It is most definitely a page turner and well worth the time of reading. It is of course all about the drama of big haired Texas women. I do wish however that there was a sequel or a more fulfilling ending. I felt that at the end there was too much of a gap, but otherwise a beautiful book!!

Format: Paperback
I bought the recently released paperback version of this book at the bookstore after devouring the first forty pages before I even walked out of the building. The story centers around Amanda Vaughn who returns home to HIllside Park, an extremely wealthy neighborhood in Dallas, Texas, after a failed marriage in which her husband was a serial philanderer. Since it is the neighborhood she grew up in she's taken by surprise when she isn't welcome back. Her friends, aware of her good looks despite having gone through heartache, are jealous over the fact that they have yet another rival within their ranks for male attention, even though, Amanda isn't on the lookout for datable men, she's just trying to get her life back together. Nonetheless, her friends from high school are determined to ruin her reputation and social standing as best as they can. And their main vehicle for doing so is through the Longhorn Ball charity event. As the previous reviewer stated, there are some artificial elements present throughout the book. But it isn't so much the fault of the author, but rather the social strata of which she is writing is actually very much superficial and it is to her credit that she captures it well in this book. Unfortunately, many people still think the Deep South possesses the gentility and glamour of Gone With the Wind, and while that may have been an accurate portrayal of the South during Margaret Mitchell's era and before, this book is actually representing the Deep South society in its present state much more realistically. The way they use Church activities for malicious gossip and how the true message of Christ is not lived out, is highly accurate of this element of Southern Society.Read more ›
