A feisty Texas momma takes on Hollywood in this “funny and engaging” (Los Angeles Times) debut novel Ruby Kincaid has her hands full running her bowling alley, wrangling her pistol of a sister Loralva, and chasing after two grandchildren abandoned by her daughter Violet. When she sees Violet in a TV commercial, Ruby vows: it’s Hollywood or bust—and packs up the Winnebago to fetch her wayward daughter. Along for the ride are Loralva, who wouldn’t miss going to the game show capital of the world; Violet’s huffy mother-in-law Imogene; the unruly grandkids; and a heaping supply of MoonPies to keep them all quiet.Funny, heartwarming, and peopled by colorful characters that could only come out of the Lone Star state, this high-spirited tale is both a “hilarious culture clash” (Publishers Weekly) and a moving testament to one family’s unconditional love.

The funny parts were limited and didn't actually make me laugh out loud. One of the characters (Imogene) was s...
