Leanna Ellis, author of the ultra fun Elvis homage, Elvis Takes a Backseat, brings a spirituality and touch of inspiration to her women's fiction, a complete combination of humor and depth that transcends generations. I adore her work and can't wait to lay my hands on this one. Here's what people are saying about her September release, Lookin' Back Texas:
"What a hoot! Leanna Ellis has a gift for storytelling and for quirky, fun, eccentric characters entirely true to the human experience."Arlene James, Author of His Small-Town Girl
“In a smooth pairing of wit and grit, Leanna Ellis weaves a tale of flawed relationships and crippling regrets with wonderfully timed comedic threads. A fresh, clever look at the audacity of love that forgives.” Susan Meissner, Author of Blue Heart Blessed
“An entertaining tale, full of rich characters and a deep lesson about healing the past. Leanna Ellis is on my reading list from here on out.” Rachel Hauck, Author of Sweet Caroline and Diva NashVegas
“A wacky, off-the-wall read that’s spiritually right on target!” Cathy Marie Hake, Author of Forevermore and Fancy Pants
A devoted wife and mother must return to her hometown of Luckenbach, Texas to help her mother plan her father’s funeral. Trouble is – he isn’t dead! And neither are the secrets she buried there years ago.
An unbelievable amount of revenue has been generated by the mention of this Texas town in the Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings song. Anyone outside of Texas know the real secret about Luckenbach? Texas readers, have no fear. Send me your picture of Luckenbach and I'll post. I'm digging for mine...Here it is...my brother-in-law, Kenny, on the left, my dad on the right. Does this give away the secret? Anyone else have a photo? I'd bet my left arm it's the exact same photo.
