A Wedding at The Paragraph Ranch by Kay Ellington
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Another enjoyable story in the Paragraph Ranch series. In this second installment, former English professor Dee Bennett has made her home back in Claxton, TX. Her mom is now in her own home in a nearby retirement village and her daughter has decided to return to school on the east coast. Dee finds herself without a job and is still waiting to get her book published. For the time being, Dee is able to pick up work part time at both the library and the local paper, where she is covering the campaign of a local home town hero for Texas Railroad Commissioner. As it turns out the former high school quarterback has a few skeletons in his closet and it's up to Dee to uncover the truth. Add to the mix a feisty pair of goats and a whole town of quirky characters.
I enjoyed this cute story that takes place in west Texas. My only real dislike is that it takes place during the Obama / McCain race that makes it a bit outdated and a bit of a political soapbox. I think a fictional race would be more appropriate and appeal to a wider audience. For a "cozy read / mystery" this is one of the more well written, "less cheesy" selections that I have come across.
