My review:

This is my first book by this author and I have several my on my TBR list. Now that I have read one I look forward to reading others!

When the book first started I was not sure if I was going to like the narration, but once it got a few minutes into it I really enjoyed it. I do not normally listen to audio books so it just took me a minute to get used to someone reading to me. I enjoyed the narrators voice and I was not tired of it after the ten hours of listening to it.

I enjoyed this book. The characters were quirky and fun, the town was chaotic and loud, and time was relative. The plot flowed smoothly, although at times I felt that it was too slow, but then the pace would pick back up again. The story line is unique and there was quite a bit of humor in this story.  There were also some occasions that were serious. I felt like there was a nice balance between dialogue and descriptions and there was enough surprises to keep the story going.

There were several lines that really caught my attention. One was "if I had someone like you..." and another that in essence said, "He had the feeling no one knew the exact time, or how much time was left." I found it very profound, but yet, completely true and sums up Two-Time Texas well.

I would recommend this book to anyone who loves western comedies or just comedies of this story was both. There was quite a bit going on and was an engaging read.



Welcome to Two-Time Texas:
Where tempers burn hot
Love runs deep
And a single marriage can unite a feuding town
...or tear it apart for good
In the wild and untamed West, time is set by the local jeweler...but Two-Time Texas has two: two feuding jewelers and two wildly conflicting time zones. Meg Lockwood's marriage was supposed to unite the families and finally bring peace. But when she's left at the altar by her no-good fiance, Meg's dreams of dragging her quarrelsome neighbors into a ceasefire are dashed.
No wedding bells? No one-time town.
Hired to defend the groom against a breach of promise lawsuit, Grant Garrison quickly realizes that the only thing worse than small-town trouble is falling for the jilted bride. But there's something about Meg's sweet smile and determined grit that draws him in...even as the whole crazy town seems set on keeping them apart.
Who knew being Left at the Altar could be such sweet, clean, madcap fun?

  1. This looks delightful. I love left at the alter tropes because it's so dramatic. And I love crazy townspeople too!
