5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing contemporary romance novel 12 Jan. 2004
By Involved Parent - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I first read "Tending Roses" by Lisa Wingate and absolutely loved it. I picked up "Texas Cooking," not expecting a contemporary romance novel, but found that I really enjoyed it! I am not much of a romance reader, many times I find they revolve around the heroine and hero finally having sex. Mrs. Wingate avoided writing an explicit chapter(s) while still capturing the jolt one feels when reading about the physical attraction between a man and a woman. I was thoroughly pleased with the path the heroine had to take to get to the typical ending. I say typical, because the reader will determine the outcome of the book as it does follow the romance novel outline. Girl meets boy, boy is infuriating but interesting, girl falls for boy, girl must make life changing decision, girl and boy part, girl realizes mistake and they get together to live happy ever after. BUT!!!! That is the beauty of this genre... predictable to a degree, feel good book that takes you away from every day worries. Lisa Wingate throws in a few of her own twists, creating a tale of love, choices, and a whole new reason to visit Texas!

5.0 out of 5 stars A BOOK YOU'LL WANT TO SHARE WITH EVERYONE 15 Oct. 2003
By Shelley B - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I bought Texas Cooking in the Dallas airport as I was flying back home (east coast). I'm a transplanted Texan, so I can relate to Collie's difficulty deciding between the closeness and slower pace of small town life and the excitement of urban living. Lisa Wingate does a great job of portraying both sides of the coin, while at the same time creating a memorable love story, fantastic secondary characters, and humor that will have you rolling on the floor. Texas Cooking is funny, but it also examines life, love, and friendship in a deep, insightful way. I dog-eared pages so I could go back and read them again, then I went out and bought several more copies to share with friends. Great book, talented author, unforgettable story, much deeper than typical chicklit; in fact my husband read it in two days and loved it, also. My only complaint is that it doesn't seem to be available in hardback. That's a shame, because it is one I will save and reread often.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, will make you laugh 25 Jun. 2004
By Crazy Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is refreshing! It's got a good story line, it's one of the funniest books I've read in a long time and it's romantic without detailed sex. I thought it kept moving and was interesting. There's one part where you want to hit 'Collie' over the head and tell her to stop running from the truth of her feelings, but that's also part of what makes the story interesting. I'm looking forward to reading more of Lisa Wingate's books. I hope she keeps writing for a long time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another fun tale! 8 Mar. 2005
By rebelmomof2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I do enjoy reading the occassional romance novels ~~ but when it starts getting to be too descriptive of the private acts of the bedroom ~~ it's not usually my favorite part of the book and oftentimes, ruin the book for me. I am relieved to report that Lisa Wingate have a contemporary romance novel ~~ and it's clean enough that if I had a daughter to read it ~~ I can allow her to read it! Wingate makes romance fun!

This book focuses on Collie, a hotshot media reporter who had been fired in a scandal back in Washington, D.C. Her best friend from college, Laura Draper, sent her on an assignment for one of the numerous magazines that Laura is in charge of. So Collie heads to San Saline, Texas, broke, jobless and boyfriendless. And there, Collie discovers a world that she has never known of ~~ where peacocks wake you up in the morning to gazing at the starlit heavens of a Texas evening. Instead of focusing on her articles, Collie finds herself making friends left and right ~~ and falling in love with True, a true cowboy.

It may sound simple and sweet ~~ but sometimes, you just need those times to read those books. This book and Lone Star Cafe are just perfect for summery readings or for those long winter nights when the snow is blowing hard against the roof ~~ then you can nestle among your blankets and read of a romance novel that is just clean fun!

4.0 out of 5 stars Texas in the springtime 27 April 2004
By Sharon Knutson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
What a delightful book. Collie Collins discovers another side to life in San Saline, Texas when she arrives to start writing a series of articles on cooking. Previously Collie was a high powered reporter but through a series of events, lost her job, was dumped by her boyfriend and betrayed by people she trusted. So she finds herself in San Saline, a small town in the hill country of Texas, trying to find her way. She meets True, The Tractor Man. As with many things in San Saline, he is not what she expected. In San Saline, she begins to discover things about herself as well as the others in town. This is a heart warming story about taking chances and risks in your life. Will she find out the event in True's past that changed him and brought him back to San Saline? Will she ever return back to her previous life in the fast paced world in D.C.? Does she want to go back to that life, or has she truly found something special in San Saline? The story moves along, is funny, and touching. I think you will enjoy it, and it made me long for a spring day in Texas filled with rolling hills covered in wild flowers....come on and stop for a visit in San Saline...you may not wish to leave anytime soon...
