An unusual heroine, in appearance and upbringing, comes to a Texas and meets a country lawyer. Sparks fly!
Enjoyed the independence and persistence of the characters; the romance moved at a good pace. The obstacle to the romance is well laid out, but the hero's dithering about the issue got a little tedious, even if it was understandable. Great detail on the setting and a slam bang ending!
Recommend.

By far, Ms. Ardito's best book, second only to Chasing Adonis. These characters make you want to be part of the brewery experience, and the feel of being in Texas is as real as breathing. This book has a little bit of everything...romance, mystery, suspense, characters you love and those you love to hate. I highly recommend this book.

Blame it on Texas: Lightning in a Bottle is a fantastic read that I really enjoyed!

Bo works night and day to make her new venture of crafting Empire Beer a reality, but the road to success is never easy. She doesn't want to depend on anyone and she especially does

Then there are her overprotective father, four meddling older brothers, honorary aunt and uncle along with her assistant. The interactions Bo has with her family are priceless.

An Amazing Read! It is a well written, action packed, suspense-filled, witty, funny, and captivating fast pace read. The plot is well developed, fresh, and flows smoothly.

Interesting characters you will love (Drew – easy going and calm; Bo – feisty and strong); the Chemistry between them is intense. This is an on the edge of your seat read from beginning to end, so hold on to your seats ...more

Bo heads back home to Texas after suffering a bad situation in New York and she decides to open her own brewery. She comes from a all male household so she is independent and used to taking care of things herself. Drew is a local attorney who has his eye on Bo and tries to keep his brother out of trouble. They both have a instant attraction for each other but can they find a compromise so they can move forward. Loved this story and both Bo and Drew.

This is the 3rd book I've read written Gina Ardito; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I will definitely be reading more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.

All the characters in the book are very likeable and real, except for Drew's brother Wade. For someone who'd sworn off men, Bo fell into it with Drew pretty quick. He was never concerned with what she isn't, only with what she is, and her past doesn't matter to him. I was heartbroken when she broke up with him. There was a wonderful happy ending, though. (I love Bo's obsession with Drew's underwear!)

Bo McKenzie is the owner of Empire Brewery. She’s just relocated to Texas from New York and she gonna open her craft beer brewery.

Drew Garwood is the local police in town, he’s impressed with Bo, but being a good ole boy, puts his foot in his mouth.

Witty and fun, with a strong heroine, physically and metaphorically.

More than beer brewing in Texas
Bo settled in betting on success
Drew knee getting involved my bite him like a snake but she was worth it.
All the walls she built that he knocked down were in jeopardy of reappearing if he could not convince her to fight for her business and for them

A very good story there is suspense, drama, danger, arson, a man that tries to take what he figures is his, and romance. This is lawyer Drew Garwood and craft brewery owner Bo McKenzie's story. A story that has a well written storyline and flows smoothly from page to page. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Blame it on Texas: Lightning in a Bottle is a fast-paced suspenseful read. A nasty New York divorce leads Bo to Texas to start over with her own brewing company. She is a workaholic, sassy, feisty, and attracted to Drew. He is immediately attracted to Bo. The story is well written and pulls you in right from the start.

After a terrible divorce from a cheating, stealing ex, Bo leaves NY to start her business in a small town in Texas. Meets the awesome lawyer Drew, but not looking for anyone, surprise, she is drawn to him.

I loved the small town and friendly people. You fall in love with all the characters. A great story, I can't wait to read more.

Enjoyable. Strong female MC who does not meet gender expectations. Some misunderstandings and baggage. Decent distraction. . . . .
