Talk of the Town Book Review

I saw the first two books in the series at the library so I grabbed them.  I decided that I would want to check out this new series for myself.  Talk of the Town by Lisa Wingate was the first in the series so I started there.  I had read something by the author but I really couldn't remember what but I decided it looked like a great story in a small town.

Daily, Texas, has never really been known for much until Amber Anderson becomes a finalist on a television singing show. The producers want to stage a surprise concert for one of the final episodes--only everyone in town seems to know the secret. And paparazzi are arriving. And word from Hollywood is that Amber has disappeared with a bad-boy actor. Can anything go right in this tumbleweed town?

Widow Imagene Doll loves her town, but without her beloved husband, life seems lonely--and a bit dull. At least until that fancy-dressed television producer pulls into town, looking terrified and glamorous all at once. Soon life's not the least bit boring as the town finds itself at the center of a media maelstrom . . . with a young girl's future on the line.

It was off to a slow start but it was interesting to get to know the small town and the characters Once I was started in the book, I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen with these characters and the quirky small town charm.  Amber has the small town charm but has starting showing the whole world because she is on a singing show (think American Idol) and it brings question to whether she is really as naive as she seems.  The reporters and many others are showing up in the small town and meeting all of the people who are like family to the members of the small town community.  The small town hotel opens and the town chips in to help paint and remodel when they know people are going.  They also open a store so that people can get Amber Anderson goods.  The town is pulling together around the members of their small community and supporting them with everything that have.  You have to pick up the book to find out all of the funny stories that happen because of this support.  I hope that you check out this book and the rest of the series and enjoy the funny town of Daily, Texas where you feel like you have visited even without leaving your house.
