The Book: A Wedding at the Paragraph Ranch, by Kay Ellington and Barbara Brannon
The Blurb: As new owner of the falling-apart family homestead in West Texas, Dee Bennett is wrangling ways to earn a living, mend fences with farm and family, and manifest her dreams as a writer—all while nurturing the budding relationship with her beau, outdoorsy photographer Max Miller. But when a drop-dead-gorgeous, high-powered handler for a candidate in a key statewide election blows into Claxton, rivalries bigger than politics and football develop. With stakes running high on the campaign trail, as well as in publishing dreams and love lives, a Bennett family wedding must be attended to. And Dr. Dee, with the assistance of her motley writing-group protégés, must search her soul and fend off a host of challenges to live the life she just might learn to love.
The Blabber: Kay Ellington and Barbara Brannon’s second installment of the The Paragraph Ranch series, A Wedding at the Paragraph Ranch, is even better written and enjoyable as the first. After deciding to remain in her home town, Dee Bennett finds herself juggling two jobs, a blog, a potential publisher, her Mama and an upcoming event at the farm, while also keeping a hussy’s claws off her boyfriend and uncovering a 20 year old secret that has state-wide repercussions. Filled with likable characters and touching on real regional issues, A Wedding at the Paragraph Ranch is an entertaining read.
