review and tour: lone star legend by gwendolyn zepeda

Sandy writes for an online magazine that has just been bought out by a company that focuses more on trashy gossip. Sandy isn’t thrilled (and her boyfriend, a grad student, is appalled), but she needs to pay the rent on the garage apartment at her mom’s. Sandy vents her frustrations about her family, boyfriend, and the job that makes her compromise herself on an anonymous blog. Except it turns out to not be so anonymous as the articles she posts for her new employer gain in popularity. Sandy has to face all those she’s hurt, including a wonderful man named Jaime who never even realized how she had betrayed him until his nephew discovers what she’s done.

I loved Sandy even as she faltered; she was both flawed and wonderful—human. The format of Lone Star Legend added to my enjoyment as it combined traditional prose with Sandy’s blog posts and articles as well as reader comments.
