Talk of the Town
series: Welcome to Daily, Texas
"Wingate is, quite simply, a master storyteller."--Booklist
Daily, Texas, wasn't known for much until Amber Anderson becomes a finalist on TV's most popular singing competition. Sent ahead to prepare for a surprise concert in the young singer's hometown, Mandalay Florentino knows failure isn't an option if she wants to keep her job. However, everyone in town seems to know the secret already. Paparazzi are arriving, and word from Hollywood is that Amber has disappeared with an actor. Frankly, Mandalay could do without the distraction of the local cowboy who keeps appearing wherever she goes.
Widow Imagene Doll loves her town, but without her beloved husband, life seems lonely and a bit dull. At least until a high-profile television producer pulls into town, looking terrified and glamorous all at once. Soon life's anything but boring as the citizens of Daily--and Imagene--find themselves at the center of a media storm . . . with a young girl's future on the line.
