Today’s chat is about Texas Montgomery Mavericks! Last night, I mentioned that Texas
Daze is book NINE in the Whispering Springs, Texas Series. I know some of you were like.. WHAT??!!?? Where are the other EIGHT books in this series? How I did miss that?

I can explain! When I wrote Texas Two Step, I didn’t really know that it was the start of a series! Then Texas Tango was born, along with Texas Montgomery Mavericks. Tango was followed by Texas Fandango, Texas Twist, Texas Bossa Nova, Texas Hustle and closed with Texas Lullaby. I was sad.


I LOVED my people. Loved their little town of interesting friends. AND I kept wondering how much trouble Delene and Tina would get into!
Then I wrote Saddles and Soot. In the SAME communities, but not a Montgomery family member and I thought… Hey! Let’s tell more stories in Whispering Springs, Texas. But to keep all the stories in the same “series”. I decided to RENAME Texas Montgomery Mavericks books to Whispering Springs, Texas to keep them grouped. Keeping the same series name (TTM) would not really convey to the readers that the book they were picking up wouldn’t actually have a Montgomery in it.

Then came Texas Daze. Same community (Whispering Springs, TX), Montgomerys show up and Delene ACTS UP!  HAHA

Hold up your hand if you read Texas Hustle (Porchia and Darren’s story.) Do you remember that the Montgomery patriarchs (Lane and Clint) had a sister (Cora) who got made about inheritance issues and left town, never to be seen again? Well, I found her! AND she has two sons and one daughter. And get this, ONE of her sons actually lives in Whispering Springs and has been “watching” the Montgomerys for a few years! OMG! No kidding. The Montgomerys offspring have a COUSIN living in the same town and they don’t know!

Today’s questions for you to answer…

  1.  Have you read Texas Hustle? Do you remember Cora, the missing sister?
  2. Do you have a PRINT copy of Lullaby or Tango, and if not, do you want one?
  3. If you won the beach towel, would you keep it or give it away?
  4. Have you bought When Things Got Hot in Texas yet?
  5. Have you left a review for When Things Got Hot in Texas? (YAY if yes. PLEASE Do, if no!)

THANK YOU for coming by.

PLEASE share this post everywhere!! 🙂 If you do, come back and tell me (two comments, two entries!! I know how to game the system!)

  11. I can’t believe it! I don’t remember reading Texas Hustle!! Can’t find it on my kindle either. So I guess that answers that question.
