Giveaway + Review BLAME IT ON TEXAS by CHRISTIE CRAIG @Christie_Craig @ForeverRomance






Book Description

August 28, 2012 Hotter in Texas (Book 2)
Zoe Adams has always been content with her quiet nights at home, watching TV alone-until her life turns into a real-life episode of Unsolved Mystery Hunters. The story of a kidnapped girl triggers unexplained memories, and Zoe is dead-set on figuring out why. Her search leads her to one of the Lone Star State's richest families-and to sexy PI Tyler Lopez.

Tyler has sworn off women, especially redheads with killer curves who poke their noses into his clients' private lives. Still, he can't deny the attraction any more than he can deny that some of Zoe's crazy story makes sense. But when she becomes a hit man's target, this cold case starts heating up. Suddenly, Tyler will do anything to protect Zoe-even risk his heart.

About the Author
New York Times bestselling author Christie Craig grew up in Alabama, where she caught lightning bugs, ran barefoot, and regularly rescued potential princes, in the form of bullfrogs, from her brothers. Today, she's still fascinated with lightning bugs and mostly wears shoes, but focuses on rescuing mammals and hasn't kissed a frog in years. She now lives in Texas with her four rescued cats, one dog-who has a bad habit of eating furniture-a son, and a prince of a husband who swears he's not, and never was, a frog.

If Christie isn't writing, she's reading or just enjoying laughter with her friends and family. As a freelance writer, Christie also writes nonfiction books, including the humorous self-help/relationship book Wild, Wicked & Wanton: 101 Ways to Love Like You're in a Romance Novel, as well as paranormal young adult romances under the pen name C. C. Hunter.

MY THOUGHTS
LOVED IT

Since Zoe Adams adores her Unsolved Mystery Hunter television show, she can't believe the current installment triggers some undeniable parallels in her own life.  When she discovered that she is adopted and she is the heir to a fortune in Texas.  She enlists the help of hunky Tyler Lopez, former policeman and now a private investigator.  After a series of disturbing and threatening phone calls, Tyler helps her uncover the truth behind her biological family.  Of course, he doesn't believe her at first and wants nothing to do with women at this point in life, but can't help be drawn to her.  SWOON!  

Told in alternating voices of both Zoe and Tyler is the perfect way to unfold this romantic tale.  There are so many wonderful quips filled with humor that really made me laugh.  As Tyler and Zoe get closer to the truth, the more they find themselves in danger.  There is just enough suspense and mystery to balance out the humor that keeps the story quite fast paced.  

Even though this is the second book in the series, I think it can easily stand alone.  Nikki (Zoe's BFF) and Dallas from the first book are present, so there is some continuity of characters.  Also, there is a bit of a second plot going on with Rick and Ellen that also started in Blame It On Texas, which was really pleasant.  If you enjoy Jill Shalvis and her Lucky Harbor series, you will love this series as well!
