Talk of the Town

By Lisa Wingate


The show American Megastar is the hottest thing on television but its associate producer, Mandalay Florentino, is worried. She's just arrived in the tiny town of Daily, Texas, to arrange a surprise "reunion concert" for hometown finalist Amber Amberson. Only it turns out everyone in town seems to know the secret. And paparazzi are arriving. Word from Hollywood is that Amber has disappeared with a "bad boy" actor. Can anything go right in this tumbleweed town? Imagene Doll loves her town of Daily, Texas, but things are lonely without her beloved husband. Life seems dull. At least until that fancy-dressed woman pulls into town, looking terrified and glamorous all at once. Soon life's not the least bit boring as Imagene and the rest of Daily find themselves at the center of a media maelstrom--with a young girl's future on the line.

Book Takeaway:

You will take away lots of good laughs, a chance to meet new people and see them pull together to help one of their own, and a cause to reflect on God's plan unfolding their lives.

Why the author wrote this book:

We live down the road a piece from Crawford, TX, which resulted in hearing some hilarious and touching stories about life in a small town when the world stage, celebrities, TV cameras and paparazzi move in. I thought it would be fun to relate some of the incidents in a fiction book. It has been a chance to include some typical small town characters and mix with a sample of big city folks and celebrities and see what the clash of cultures and values brings about.
