Présentation de l'éditeur

Between Hollywood glamour and small-town secrets, what is the truth? The show American Superstars is the hottest thing on television, but its associate producer, Mandalay Florentino, is worried. She's just arrived in the tiny town of Daily, Texas, to arrange a surprise "reunion concert" for hometown finalist Amber Amberson. Only it turns out everyone in town seems to know the secret. And paparazzi are arriving. And word from Hollywood is that Amber has disappeared with a "bad boy" actor. Can anything go right in this tumbleweed town?
Imagene Doll loves her town of Daily, Texas, but things are lonelier without her beloved husband. Life seems dull. At least until that fancy-dressed woman pulls into town, looking terrified and glamorous all at once. Soon life's not the least bit boring as Imagene--and the rest of Daily--find themselves at the center of a media maelstrom...with a young girl's future on the line.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 LOL! Lots of laughs and an excellent story... 6 février 2008
Par Jandi Oliah - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I bought this book last Friday and started reading it on the T. I laughed so hard, I'm sure people around me thought I was nuts. I finished the entire thing over the weekend, because I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN! Every chapter seemed to end in a cliffhanger that kept me turning the pages wanting to know what would happen next. Lisa Wingate is a great author, and this story is so contemporary, having to do with a show like American Idol, and the ups and downs of a reality TV life, and the culture clash when the reality TV people, press, and paparazzi swarm to a small town.

I loved every one of the people in the story. They were all unique and each one of them seemed like a real person you could meet anywhere (OK, maybe not JUST anywhere) and would enjoy talking to. I could hear the rhythm of the language of this little Texas town, and I could appreciate the fact that, even while being tempted by fame and fortune, they do the right thing for one of their own. I thought it was especially touching that the young singing star, Amber Anderson, doesn't turn out to be what you'd think she would be.

I'm very glad I picked up this book. No disappointments here. I can absolutely see why other authors endorsed it so enthusiastically, and why all the glowing reviews. This story shines. Wingate is a great writer. I agree with one of the reviews that said the religious elements were done in a subtle way, which I like. I don't think a book needs to preach at you or hit you over the head to make a good point. My grandfather was a pastor, and his message was gentle, never condescending or critical, which made him successful with people. He didn't turn people off, he drew them in.

This story draws you in. It makes a good point about the ways God can make use of someone's life, even if that person has flaws, the way society looks at morality, and the way people should act toward each other according to the Golden Rule. Any book that can do all that and still make you laugh until people stare at you definitely deserves five stars!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Lisa Wingate's Talk of the Town is an outstanding book! 7 février 2008
Par Ed Stevens - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
"Talk of the Town" is one of the best books I've read! I couldn't put it down until I finished reading it. It is an exciting, interesting and funny story of how a reporter, her boss, town people with various experiences, and a very talented young person deals with fame. One of the qualities I love about all of Lisa Wingate's writings is her ability to weave life enhancing information throughout the story.

As an example, "It's not your life Mandalay, it's just your job; there's a difference." Here we learn an important and easily applied lesson on how to deal with job related stress. Another "Quit fighting the sails & let the wind move the boat. Drift on faith for awhile." This one has many teachings, one of which is take a break and regroup while you enjoy your blessings.

"In Talk of the Town," Amber is the young lady who is thrown into the world of the paparazzi and fame so quickly that it's difficult for her to cope. Her privacy is lost. The story deals with how she copes. A beautiful, tactfully written love story adds to the excitement to make this an outstanding book. Lisa Wingate's "Talk of the Town" is already a best seller for me! I highly recommend it to everyone!

This book has all the characteristics needed for a great movie. I can't wait to see it playing in theaters across the country!

I like Lisa Wingate. I've enjoyed other books by her more than I did this one. It's set in small town Texas with some characters who are laugh-out loud funny. Mandalay, the main character, is a producer for an American Idol-type television show.

Amber, one of the finalists is a sweet, country girl from the backwoods of Daily, Texas and Mandalay is sent to organize the "reunion concert" for her. The concert is supposed to be top secret, but the paparazzi have arrived and...more I like Lisa Wingate. I've enjoyed other books by her more than I did this one.

The concert is supposed to be top secret, but the paparazzi have arrived and Amber is missing. The citizens of Daily, Texas prove themselves as they come together to support their hometown girl.

Told through the first-person viewpoints of Mandalay and Imagene, the sweet grandma, the story is funny and, at times, charming.

Now, I hate reality t.v. and I particularly can't stand American Idol, nor do I understand the obsessive hype that goes along with it. Lisa Wingate capitalizes on that hype here. I don't think this book took a great deal of thought or effort to write. It lacks the depth of her other novels, but is light and entertaining: no thinking required. True chick-lit.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A wonderful book! 25 décembre 2008
Par Barb M - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I loved this book! I listened to the audio version and Johanna Parker's reading certainly contributed to my enjoyment. Yes, it had a fairly predictable plot, but the characters were great fun and very real. It moved me to tears in places and made me laugh out loud in others. While it was clearly grounded in faith, it was not so overwhelming that I felt like I was reading a sermon and I think it could be enjoyed by a reader of any faith. It's a pleasure to run across such a talented author. I've read 2 other books by Wingate and will seek out more.

They say timing is everything. I received this book just as the famous reality TV show, American Idol, was winding down to their finalists for the year. In Talk of the Town, Lisa Wingate tells the story of Amber Anderson, one of the five finalists of American Megastar. As is the case with the real reality show, finalists are filmed going to their hometowns for a reunion concert. Enter our main character, Mandalay Florentino, whose job it is to pull together the whole visit. But she has to pull it off without actually telling anyone what she's doing. Texas author Wingate, as she does frequently, sets the scene in a small Texas town, this one called Daily.

Definitely not a small town devotee, Manda is very conspicuous going about town talking to town folks. They figure out what she's about as soon as she arrives on the scene, but they do their best not to let her catch on to the fact that they've caught on. The townspeople, in the persons of Imagene Doll and all the beauty shop ladies, "adopt" Manda and try to help, although she's never sure she really needs their help. But Daily is just like that--neighbor helping neighbor, friend helping friend, never knowing a stranger. Of course, the gossip hotline is well and alive. They wouldn't like to think they're gossiping, though; they're really just looking out for their own. One of their own is Amber, and they'll do anything to help her overcome a difficult childhood. As far as Daily is concerned, there is only one American Megastar.

Manda's professional nemesis is boss Ursula, who gives orders like a staff sergeant and expects complete compliance. No is not a word in her repertoire. Manda is "sort of" engaged to David, who hasn't managed to find time to buy a ring. Between the lukewarm fiancé and the job stress, Manda is ready to have a personal crisis. Once in Daily, she meets Carter, who manages in a very short time to intrigue Manda as David never has. Who is this handsome stranger and why is he here sharing the Elvis suite with Manda?

After a week filled with debacles and disasters, the hometown trip and reunion concert turn out... Well, you'll have to read the book to find out. And, Manda decides... No, I'm not giving that away either. You'll love sharing this story with these wonderful folks!

Wingate writes tender and romantic stories that have a point to make. Her character development is good, introducing each character, giving the reader important background, and letting the reader get to know them. Soon they are the friends and neighbors we've known for a long time. Her books are light reads but never so syrupy sweet that the story is overpowered by marshmallow fluff. With a surprise or two for good measure, they stand on their own as modern day parables. Wingate espouses wholesomeness, family, friends and old-fashioned values. Her stories are readable and enjoyable, and I never have the feeling I've been preached to. Instead, I've usually learned a lesson. Though published by a Christian publishing house, I believe Wingate's novels attract a wide readership because her stories have universal appeal.

Talk of the Town is no exception. This latest offering by Wingate is very enjoyable, a good summer read. It's like going back home for a family reunion.
