THE BLUE-RIBBON JALAPEÑO SOCIETY JUBILEE
Humor and down-home charm make this a first-place prize winner. All the character quirks and small-town appeal are used to the fullest advantage. This is one book that you won’t want to put down for anything and wish would never end.
Not a lot goes on in Cadillac, Texas, at least not a lot The Blue-Ribbon Jalapeño Society doesn’t know about. It’s time for the Society’s annual jubilee, and things get complicated. Aunt Agnes has declared war on Violet Prescott, the president of the Society. When the jubilee is over, and Cadillac is still standing, four friends will stick together through ups and downs, marriages and divorces. (SOURCEBOOKS, Mar., 336 pp., $14.99)
