Hollywood, Texas

Hollywood, Texas
The Brides of Texas Novellas
Kathleen Y'Barbo
ASIN: B00IK8528E
February 2014/71 pages/$1.99

Movie industry insiders may call actress Amy Foreman the next Grace Kelley, but Texas veterinarian Adam Chambers calls her the woman who broke his heart. Now she’s grooming dogs in his clinic while the trouble she left back in California untangles in her absence.

Where does a woman with the most famous face in America go to hide? Home, of course. From Hollywood, Texas to Hollywood, California and back again…can a small town veterinarian and a famous hometown movie star rekindle their lost love?


RITA and Carol award nominee Kathleen Y’Barbo is the best-selling, award-winning author of more than forty novels, novellas, and young adult books. In all, more than one million copies of her books are currently in print in the US and abroad, and her books have been translated into Dutch, German, and Spanish, to name a few.

Kathleen is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers and Romance Writers of America. She holds a BBA from Texas A&M University’s Mays Business School and a certification in Paralegal Studies and is a former member of the Texas Bar Association’s Paralegal Division.

A tenth-generation Texan, Kathleen Y’Barbo has four children of her own as well as seven bonus kids she gladly inherited when she married her own hero in combat boots (read about their real-life romance here!). Kathleen is proud to be a military wife, even if it did mean giving up her Texas drivers license. Visit her website to learn more about her and her books.


When the opening paragraphs revealed a well-known actress on the porch of her first love in the tiny Texas hometown that shares only a name with her California life, I knew I was in for a lively and captivating read and Kathleen Y'Barbo did not disappoint. Since this is a novella, the story moves quickly but Y'Barbo manages to pack a lot in this tiny tome. Endearing characters, a whisper of danger, and a charming romance make this an enjoyable addition to your springtime reading list.
