Carlene, owner of a lingerie shop in a small town in North Texas discovers a pair of red undies she designed in her husband's briefcase. They are not hers, but she knows exactly who she made them for. This begins the crazy, but fun antics of her family to get back at her cheating husband Lenny.

This was so much fun. It reminded me a bit of Steel Magnolias and The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. The sisters are hilarious, the cousins have a great relationship and the men in their lives (minus Lenny) are sweet, supportive and understanding of their craziness. There is small town, out-of-control gossip, old ladies having cat fights, and some really hot...chili.

I really enjoyed this book. It was laugh-out-loud funny, fast paced and reminiscent of many Texas ladies I knew when I lived there.

Happy Reading!
