From New York Times and USA Today best-selling Texas romance author Jean Brashear: a boxed set of the three-part serial, The Book Babes of Austin, including Texas Ties, Texas Troubles, and Texas Together, another story in her popular Texas Heroes series. The Book Babes reading group began as five women wanting to talk books - but now they've become family. There's romance author Ava Sinclair, organizer and backbone; happily-married mother of five Ellie Preston, the heart of the group; elegant art gallery owner Sylvie Everett; single mom and sociology professor Luisa Martinez; and ambitious attorney Laken Foster, the wild child of the bunch. For several years now, they've met monthly and discussed the current book a little - and dissected their lives and loves far more often. But now change is rippling through the group, begun by Laken's restlessness with her freewheeling life of serial hookups and sent into hyperdrive by Ava's suddenly-hot career, while Luisa's abusive ex tries to reclaim their teenage son and Sylvie faces her mother's decline. But it's when Ellie takes her first step into life after her children fly the nest and falls under the spell of the sexy artist who's teaching her to paint that the group's orbit begins to wobble on its axis, and life - for all of them and the men they love - will never be the same. And then there's the surprise Sweetgrass Springs connection....
This is a wonderful trilogy about a group of ladies who form a book club, though books rarely get discussed at their meetings, and share their lives with each other. Each of their stories is emotional and interesting and it is fun to discover that one of them develops a surprising connection to Sweetgrass Springs. I totally enjoyed all of these stories and these lovely ladies. I laughed and cried with them and for them. Each and every one of them found a place in my heart and I am hoping that they will each pop up in future books as many of Jean Brashear’s characters often do. As usual, Eric Dove never fails to make the audio experience absolutely enjoyable.
