Product Description

Product Description

She gave advice to everyone -- but she could use a bit herself . . .

Emily von Plotz barely eked out a living giving advice to readers of the San Francisco Call as "Aunt Emily." Then she chanced to meet the man who had signed himself "Texas Lonesome" -- the unpolished, but otherwise appealing fellow who'd sought her wisdom on how to find a decent woman to share his life and wealth. Suddenly, she knew who would be perfect for him: Emily.

But "Aunt Emily" had yet to learn that while Will Tate might be a Texan, he had never in his life been lonesome, lovelorn, or lacking an any way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful! 30 Jun 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Emily von Plotz writes an advice to the lovelorn column in San Francisco. She chances to meet "Texas Lonesome," an unpolished but well-meaning fellow who wants to learn about proper decorum so as to meet a lady to marry and share his wealth with. Emily, of course, decides that she would be the perfect lady... but her well-meaning eccentric reletives (and their dachshunds) always seem to get in the way.
TEXAS LONESOME is absolutely delightful! I loved the dogs ;) I loved the plot twists, the ending escapades, the glimpses of San Francisco, and they way we were reminded that this was 1895--all the little improprities that a reader in 1995 wouldn't think of, like *gasp* sharing the same piece of furniture! the secondary characters were hilarious, and I'd love to see Thomas, the hero's best friend, get a book of his own. There were lots of LOL [laugh out loud] parts in this book, and lots of bits I had to read to my husband--a sure sign of either a very funny or very horrid book; this is definitely funny and not at all horrid. Thanks, Alice!

4.0 out of 5 stars Truly delightful 17 Jan 2013
By Frances - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book in 2011 and have read it more than once. The female lead in this story is Emily. She is witty, kind, romantic and lovely as described by the author. Her family is a bit off kilter and she must deal with their outlandish dreams and approach to their problems, which they do not really believe exist. To tell more of the story would just be giving away the pleasure of reading it. This story made me smile, truly delightful.
