Cadilac, Texas: where the gossip is free, the hottest jalapeños are worth the money, and the friendships are priceless

Bestelling author Carolyn Brown makes her first foray into women's fiction with this poignant and hilarious novel about four friends in Cadillac, Texas—where the best jalapeños in the world are grown.

Everything is calm in Cadillac, Texas until Aunt Agnes declares war on Violet Prescott, the president of the Blue-Ribbon Jalapeño Society, just in time for the annual jubilee. But after the festivities—and the hostilities—are over, it's four friends who are left standing, proving once again that friendship is forever.


You Are Cordially Invited...Come early, eat until your buttons pop, and dance until you drop!

Miss Clawdy's Café has won the Jubilee blue ribbon every year since the dawn of time. This year, town matron Violet Prescott is going after that ribbon with an iron-clad determination only thinly disguised by her perfect coiffure and flawless manners, bless her heart.

It's time for café owners Cathy and Marty and their best friend Trixie to pull out their secret weapon. And this is where a lifetime of friendship, combined with just the right recipe at just the right time, might carry the day—or blow everything to smithereens.

Welcome to Cadillac, Texas, where the jalapeños are hot, the gossip is hotter, and at the end of the day, it's the priceless friendships that are left standing...

Nice, solid read about sisters and friends in small town Texas.

The things I liked: the relationship(s) between Cathy/Marty/Trixie/Agnes/Darla Jean. The small town politics, including the decades-old feud.

The things I didn't like: the secondary Darla Jean plot that seemed to come out of nowhere. (Although I actually would have liked it if it had been given more due.) Anna Ruth. (I'm sorry. I just couldn't believe anyone could be that clueless.)

As it turns out, I've picked up other books from this author without realizing it, although those are apparently more specifically romance, whereas the romance theme wasn't a huge thing here. I enjoyed this enough that I'm very much looking forward to the romances, but I'm also very happy to hear that there will be another book in this series.
