T.S. Krupa lets us escape to the big city in her fun and adventurous Big City Dreams! Young Logan seeks to start over from her small town life in Texas by moving to New York City, but she quickly finds herself in over her head. With the help of Mac, a man with connections to the social elite, and some new friends, she tries to make her way in the city, but her past isn’t content to stay back in Texas forever. Krupa’s writing is so much lighthearted fun that it made me smile for this whole novel! ...more

Ugh! I can't believe this just ended! I totally forgot I was reading a novella & felt sideswiped like a rattler on the highway (see what I did there?)
Can't wait to read the next one!

I really enjoyed this book. Krupa's writing was very entertaining and kept my attention. I hated when the story was over. Looking forward to reading more of her work. ...more

I loved this book! It was so refreshing and the characters are just absolutely amazing for this story they all had such unique funny characteristics and blended well! The storyline was refreshing about a girl from Texas with big city dreams. She runs to the big apple and gets thrown into one adventure after another. This book will keep you guessing and on the edge of your seat till the bitter end! This is a first read for me and I hope to read more from this author in the future! I highly recomm ...more

I couldn’t put this book down! Made me want to get up and runaway to New York and join Logan on her crazy adventures. There were many moments I gasped or laughed out loud while reading, I loved following along with all the characters and it was definitely a bittersweet feeling to come to the end.

This was my first read from this author. I absolutely loved the first person point of view, which is a deal breaker for me. The story had me laughing from the start.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Logan had her life planned out - marriage to her boyfriend and working on her daddy’s ranch. It is an American Dream... but not hers. Instead, Logan takes some trains from Texas to NY so she can spread her wings and fly into something different. She meets some friends, challenges, changes, and more along the way. The Big City is a Big Adventure and exactly what dreams are made of!

Big City Dreams is a predictable, unrealistic, and overly clichéd story. So why did I give it 4 stars? Because it wa

Can I be Logan who was on the right train at the right moment to meet Mac? She was leaving her small town life where she felt trapped to try and find herself in a big city. Little did she know she really didn't need to look that far to find herself.
Boy her NYC adventure had me rolling. Her quick country twang, slang. She defiantly made an impression on everyone wherever she went. It was refreshing to read how a movie star found a small time girl who was the most natural person he met. That was s

I remember from my English classes that an author has to convince a reader to "willingly suspend disbelief." This book sure required more of that than most that I read. The story is highly improbable/implausible and it took a while to get beyond that. I also had to get past the highly fictionalized vocabulary of the main character - if I were from West Texas, I would be highly insulted by the portrayal of people from there. Also, ignore the typos.
Once you get past all of the above, it is a fun a

Had so much fun reading this book.Logan the main character is very brave , charismatic and
very authentic. She feels that her future is decided for her and decided to take meters in her own hands by eaving the only place she ever know and that is when her adventure begans. It was so refreshing to see things to someone's young and inexperienced eye. I will recommend this book to any generation because is funny,witty and you just keep flying through the pages that you almost sad when you come to th

Big City Dreams is a story about a girl who pursues a grand adventure. New York is the perfect setting for this glamorous story. Would live to see this translated into Polish.

EXCELLENT story. Logan left Texas, to find herself,to go on an adventure. She got more than she bargained for. Great characters and setting. 5 Stars and I recommend this book to everyone

I think everyone, at some point, wants to just pick up
and run away. I loved running away with Logan in this book! Great story, fun characters, and I enjoyed how everything wrapped up in the end.

Big City Dreams started out as a short novella but I soon realized there was so much more to tell in this story. December 2020 released the full stand-alone novel. This story is about a young girl trying to find herself. She runs away to NYC from her comfortable life on the ranch in Texas. She meets a man who ends up being a 'fixer' for NYC rich and famous. They form a friendship they didn't know they needed. The result - a hilarious, fast-paced adventure that takes place on the streets of New Y ...more
