The Blue Ribbon Jalapeño Society Jubilee

Saturday, March 16, 2013

Bestselling 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 jalapenos 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 Jalapeno 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.

My Thoughts:  Cadillac, Texas just doesn't grow hot jalapenos, it also has a group of quirky, wacky, and hilarious people who just can't seem to stay out of each others lives. 
There was a lot going on in this novel, and I had a hard time keeping track of it all. When I was asked to read and review it, the description reminded me of Steel Magnolia's. However, there are way too many characters, and it felt like some got lost along the way. I really wanted to like it and have it engulf me but it just didn't.
