When Carlene Lovelle discovers her husband has been keeping a secret, the women of Texas rally behind her in a battle-of-the-sexes romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Carolyn Brown.
Carlene Lovelle, owner of Bless My Bloomers lingerie shop in Cadillac, Texas, has everything she's ever wanted: a loving husband, a successful small town business on Main Street that sells custom lingerie for making women feel beautiful, and great friends who never disappoint.
However, that all changes when Carlene finds a pair of sexy red panties in her husband's briefcase. She knows exactly who those panties belong to—they were purchased from her very own shop! She's beginning to think her life would've been easier if she'd just opened Main Street Books and stayed away from silky underthings.
Now her marriage is over and her life is in a tailspin. She's humiliated, upset, and heartbroken, but it's time to move on to the anger stage of grieving. There's no point looking backward when looking forward reminds Carlene that all she needs are the ladies of this small town to rally around and teach her that revenge is a dish best served red-hot.
