Kurzbeschreibung

Between Hollywood glamour and small-town secrets, what is the truth? The show American Superstars 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. And 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 lonelier 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.

Synopsis

Includes a tale of small-town Texas with some romance as the producer of a reality show attempts to keep secrets from the locals.

5.0 von 5 Sternen LOL! Lots of laughs and an excellent story... 6. Februar 2008
Von Jandi Oliah - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I bought this book last Friday and started reading it on the T. I laughed so hard, I'm sure people around me thought I was nuts. I finished the entire thing over the weekend, because I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN! Every chapter seemed to end in a cliffhanger that kept me turning the pages wanting to know what would happen next. Lisa Wingate is a great author, and this story is so contemporary, having to do with a show like American Idol, and the ups and downs of a reality TV life, and the culture clash when the reality TV people, press, and paparazzi swarm to a small town.

I loved every one of the people in the story. They were all unique and each one of them seemed like a real person you could meet anywhere (OK, maybe not JUST anywhere) and would enjoy talking to. I could hear the rhythm of the language of this little Texas town, and I could appreciate the fact that, even while being tempted by fame and fortune, they do the right thing for one of their own. I thought it was especially touching that the young singing star, Amber Anderson, doesn't turn out to be what you'd think she would be.

I'm very glad I picked up this book. No disappointments here. I can absolutely see why other authors endorsed it so enthusiastically, and why all the glowing reviews. This story shines. Wingate is a great writer. I agree with one of the reviews that said the religious elements were done in a subtle way, which I like. I don't think a book needs to preach at you or hit you over the head to make a good point. My grandfather was a pastor, and his message was gentle, never condescending or critical, which made him successful with people. He didn't turn people off, he drew them in.

This story draws you in. It makes a good point about the ways God can make use of someone's life, even if that person has flaws, the way society looks at morality, and the way people should act toward each other according to the Golden Rule. Any book that can do all that and still make you laugh until people stare at you definitely deserves five stars!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Lisa Wingate's Talk of the Town is an outstanding book! 7. Februar 2008
Von Ed Stevens - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
"Talk of the Town" is one of the best books I've read! I couldn't put it down until I finished reading it. It is an exciting, interesting and funny story of how a reporter, her boss, town people with various experiences, and a very talented young person deals with fame. One of the qualities I love about all of Lisa Wingate's writings is her ability to weave life enhancing information throughout the story.

As an example, "It's not your life Mandalay, it's just your job; there's a difference." Here we learn an important and easily applied lesson on how to deal with job related stress. Another "Quit fighting the sails & let the wind move the boat. Drift on faith for awhile." This one has many teachings, one of which is take a break and regroup while you enjoy your blessings.

"In Talk of the Town," Amber is the young lady who is thrown into the world of the paparazzi and fame so quickly that it's difficult for her to cope. Her privacy is lost. The story deals with how she copes. A beautiful, tactfully written love story adds to the excitement to make this an outstanding book. Lisa Wingate's "Talk of the Town" is already a best seller for me! I highly recommend it to everyone!

This book has all the characteristics needed for a great movie. I can't wait to see it playing in theaters across the country!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Light and entertaining. No thinking required. 15. Juli 2009
Von Holly - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I like Lisa Wingate. I've enjoyed other books by her more than I did this one. It's set in small town Texas with some characters who are laugh-out loud funny. Mandalay, the main character, is a producer for an American Idol-type television show.

Amber, one of the finalists is a sweet, country girl from the backwoods of Daily, Texas and Mandalay is sent to organize the "reunion concert" for her. The concert is supposed to be top secret, but the paparazzi have arrived and...more I like Lisa Wingate. I've enjoyed other books by her more than I did this one.

Amber, one of the finalists is a sweet, country girl from the backwoods of Daily, Texas and Mandalay is sent to organize the "reunion concert" for her. The concert is supposed to be top secret, but the paparazzi have arrived and Amber is missing. The citizens of Daily, Texas prove themselves as they come together to support their hometown girl.

Told through the first-person viewpoints of Mandalay and Imagene, the sweet grandma, the story is funny and, at times, charming.

Now, I hate reality t.v. and I particularly can't stand American Idol, nor do I understand the obsessive hype that goes along with it. Lisa Wingate capitalizes on that hype here. I don't think this book took a great deal of thought or effort to write. It lacks the depth of her other novels, but is light and entertaining: no thinking required. True chick-lit.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A wonderful book! 25. Dezember 2008
Von Barb M - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I loved this book! I listened to the audio version and Johanna Parker's reading certainly contributed to my enjoyment. Yes, it had a fairly predictable plot, but the characters were great fun and very real. It moved me to tears in places and made me laugh out loud in others. While it was clearly grounded in faith, it was not so overwhelming that I felt like I was reading a sermon and I think it could be enjoyed by a reader of any faith. It's a pleasure to run across such a talented author. I've read 2 other books by Wingate and will seek out more.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Unexpectedly nice read! 10. Februar 2011
Von D.A. Thompson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is one of those books I probably wouldn't have picked up from a library shelf, nor would I have bought it when browsing in a store. But now that I'm addicted to my Kindle, I find I'm reading books outside my normal sphere of selection and this was one of those unexpected finds that I was surprised to enjoy. The book centers around a frustrated TV show producer, a young singing talent and the quirky characters of a small Texas town who rally around the young girl when the media closes in. The author brings the off-the-beaten-track little town to life in a delightful way. There's a touch of faith but not enough to annoy anyone who doesn't care for that, enough romance to satisfy those who like that and enough plot development to provide interesting surprises. The book was charming, well written and I found myself laughing aloud in several places ... something I do not often do when reading. This is a nice book to add to your collection (plus it's free, to make it even more enticing) and pull up when you are in a quandry over what book to read next.
