A Shot of Sultry

Macy Beckett. Sourcebooks Casablanca, $6.99 mass market (352p) ISBN 978-1-4022-7039-0
Beckett (Sultry with a Twist) revisits Sultry Springs, Tex., in this heartwarming, humorous story of second chances. L.A. documentary filmmaker Bobbi Gallagher trusted a colleague who repaid her by damaging her reputation. She returns to her mother’s hometown to visit her half-brother Luke and make a raunchy reality show, Sex in the Sticks, to fund a documentary that could put her back on the map. Luke’s friend “Golden Boy” Trey Lewis is the perfect subject for the show—but he wants Bobbi far more than any of the show’s participants. Bobbi, scarred by her horrific childhood, fears being tainted by her mother’s legacy, while Trey has learned to distrust the notion of everlasting love and is contracted to go to Dubai to clear up his other-than-honorable army discharge. A cast of eccentric characters rounds out the story, which is muscular but sweet at its core. A strong continuation of this promising series. Agent: Nicole Resciniti, Seymour Agency. (Mar.)
