Crush returns readers to fictitious Holiday, Tex., to witness the exploits of its good-natured residents in the witty third Holiday, Texas contemporary (after Cowboy Christmas Jubilee, 2018). Innocent Dixie King has had a crush on Presley Walker since childhood, but her shy disposition and her strict preacher father prevented her from acting on it. Known playboy Presley has never met a woman he couldn't charm, but Dixie is looking for more than a one-night stand. Presley secretly harbors big dreams and fears that his reputation as a jokester means no one will take him seriously. When he and Dixie partner up to look after the Rambling Rose, the town's only honky-tonk, he gets the chance to prove he's trustworthy and capable. Dealing with loads of tourists, an ornery boar, and endangered horned toads keeps their hands full; things get even stickier when a long-gone former resident with a grudge comes back for vengeance. Dixie and Presley have good chemistry, and Dixie's grandma, Genie, and best friend, Maybelle, steal the show. Small-town residents grappling with big city investors, questionable chili, and unruly critters makes for a wild good time.
Customer ReviewsSee All
I received a complimentary copy of this book from SOURCEBOOK Casablanca via NetGalley and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
This was a charmingly funny story. I loved reading Presley Walker and Dixie King's HEA journey. The Walker family has been a wonderful series so far. I look forward to reading more of this family. The prior characters from the previous books made slight appearances in this one. It was nice to catch up with prior characters. I will say that I will never look at mini-golf the same way again!!!!
Presley and Dixie have a mystery to solve and they have to TRY and work together to do it. There were some really great scenes that were hilariously funny. This author is such a joy to read. I hope that Dixie's gram make appearances in future books. She was a hoot to read and full of sage advice. I would love to be around someone like her!!!
I adore the dual format and this story has it. Getting a glimpse into the characters' thought process really helps me to connect with them.
I highly recommend this story (really the prior books as well) to anyone who loves a book with a good laugh involved.
Not just romance
I received an advanced copy of this book from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
This is the first time I have read anything by this author and I thought that she added so much action and drama to the book and didn’t have it center on the budding relationship between Presley and Dixie.
About halfway through the story I started wondering if I was really going to want to finish it, but I held on and was very pleased with where the story took me. There is so much going on in Holiday Texas, I may just have to go back and visit again in the future!
