The red-hot chili cook-off - Carolyn Brown

In small-town Cadillac, Texas, Carlene Lovelle and her cousins' fancy panty business, Bless My Bloomers, is booming. But irony strikes when Carlene discovers another woman's silk bikini underwear in her husband's briefcase. Lenny Joe hasn't just crossed the line, he's left it in his dust, so Carlene's taking her revenge to the kitchen.

For ten years, Lenny Joe's team has dominated Cadillac's Red-Hot Chili Cook-Off. But with Carlene's Bless My Bloomers team now in the ring, it's anyone's game—and when there's pride and food involved, things are bound to get messy.

My thoughts:
I always do like Brown's books, they are just sweet.

In this one we have Carlene who designs lingerie and has her own store. Her cousins work there too. The wild one, and the religious one (who got on my nerves before she finally finally got that maybe some things are not meant to be.)

Right so all seems good so far, but no, Carlene's husband Lenny is such an ass! And the book begins with her finding underwear that are not hers. I loved what she did next. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

So the book is about her moving on. People telling her what to do, the whole town butting in. The women entering the Chili cook-off and would I steer you guys wrong...yes romance at the end too.

It is book 2 but you can just jump in.

Conclusion:
Fun, sassy, and showing that you should follow your heart...and head.

    1. I just wanted to smack her. Sure be religious, but do not tell that poor woman that she is in fault and should go back
