Bittersweet Texas By Sally Thompson GIVEAWAY!

How does one mend a broken heart? Sally is nearing 30 years old and working part time as a bartender and songstress at her family's restaurant in Port Mansfield-one of the best-kept secrets of the wealthy and indulgent sport fishermen of Texas. It's also a popular port off the Gulf of Mexico for the oil companies and commercial fishermen, attracting quite a variety of humanity. And it's here that Sally meets a mysterious oil supply boat captain named Andy. Bittersweet Texas is the story of a young woman learning to love again, and her unexpected and complex relationship with Andy will change both of their lives as they face an uncertain future. Set in the 1970s, this sweet, serendipitous novel features exciting twists, humor, and heartfelt emotion-the perfect book for the romantic at heart.

Sally F. Thompson was born in Chicago and raised in the northern rural area of Illinois. As the middle child of seven, she grew up on a farm with horses in her blood. After graduating from high school, she went overseas to England to get her British Horse Society Certification. She has always been and still is to this day a horse trainer. However, her life has taken her all around the country, and she's had many adventures, many of which fuel her stories. Bittersweet Texas is her first novel and features one of the more important adventures she felt the need to share.
This book is a journal of sorts. But it is told by two people. Through out the book the story has two voices it was a little bit hard to take in.
It is a romance book for the romantic at heart. It is full of emotion but as I stated before very hard to follow sometimes.
I think love story fans will like the book.
I gave the book 4 stars.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.
