Book Tour Review and Giveaway - Burnout by Teresa Trent

  Pecan Bayou Series #5

About the book:
It’s November in Pecan Bayou, Texas and while the town is getting ready for the Thanksgiving holiday a deadly fire breaks out at the newspaper office. When Rocky, the editor is nowhere to be found, Betsy refuses to believe he has perished in the fire. The entire town is coming down with the stomach flu and Betsy must deal with her husband’s new found celebrity as an on-air weatherman filling in for an under-the-weather Hurricane Hal .
 Leo loves all the attention he’s getting, especially from the sexy administrative assistant who works at the station. Is their new marriage in trouble already? Find out in the fifth book of the Pecan Bayou Mystery Series. All the characters you’ve come to know and love are back and you’ll find plenty of the Happy Hinter’s recipes and tips included at the end of the book.

My thoughts:  
I really enjoy books written in a small town perspective, you really get to know the town's characters. When a fire breaks out at the newspaper office, and the editor, Rocky cant be found, Betsy is really worried about him. She writes a series for the small town paper called "Helpful Hints" and is friends with the editor.  Without giving too much of the story away, Betsy sets out to try and find out what happened to him.
Meanwhile, her Husband is getting alot of attention from a co-worker, and Betsy wonders what the sexy co-worker wants with her Husband!   As Betsy gets more and more involved with this mystery, I found myself being caught up in the story, and wanted to see what happens next!
I truly enjoyed all the different characters and story lines in this book! 

More about the author:
Teresa Trent writes her Pecan Bayou Mystery Series from Houston, Texas. With a father in the army,her family moved often finally settling in Colorado. Living in Texas for the last 18 years she loves the people and even the weather. Teresa includes Danny, a character with Down Syndrome in her Pecan Bayou family and in real life is the mother of an adult son with Down Syndrome/PDD. Creating the character of Danny and all of the other inhabitants of Pecan Bayou has been a joy for her. Even though she lives in the big city, her writing is influenced by all of the interesting people she finds in small towns and the sense of family that seems to be woven through them all.
