About Author:

Carolyn Brown

Hi I m twenty five years old and movie star gorgeous The camera added thirty plus years and a few wrinkles Can t trust those cameras or mirrors either Along with bathroom scales they are notorious liars Honestly, I am the mother of three fantastic grown children who ve made me laugh and given me story ideas than I could ever write My husband, Charles, is my strongest supporter and my best friend He s even willing to eat fast food and help with the laundry while I finish one chapter Life is good and I am blessed Reading has been a passion since I was five years old and figured out those were words on book pages As soon as my chubby little fingers found they could put words on a Big Chief tablet with a fat pencil, I was on my way Writing joined reading in my list of passions I will read anything from the back of the Cheerio s box to Faulkner and love every bit of it In addition to reading I enjoy cooking, my family and the ocean I love the Florida beaches Listening to the ocean waves puts my writing brain into high gear.I love writing romance because it s about emotions and relationships Human nature hasn t changed a bit since Eve coveted the fruit in the Garden of Eden Settings change Plots change Names change Times change But love is love and men and women have been falling in and out of it forever Romance is about emotions love, hate, anger, laughter all of it If I can make you laugh until your sides ache or grab a tissue then I ve touched your emotions and accomplished what every writer sets out to do.I got serious about writing when my third child was born and had her days and nights mixed up I had to stay up all night anyway and it was very quiet so I invested in a spiral back notebook and sharpened a few pencils The story that emerged has never sold but it s brought in enough rejection slips to put the Redwood Forest on the endangered list In 1997 Kensington bought two books for their Precious Gems line Two years and six books later the line died with only four of those books seeing publication But by then Avalon had bought a book and another, and another Ten years later the list has grown to thirty nine Last year Sourcebooks bought the Lucky Series which is in the bookstores now They ve also bought The Honky Tonk Series which will debut with I LOVE THIS BAR in June and will be followed by HELL, YEAH, MY GIVE A DAMN S BUSTED, and HONKY TONK CHRISTMAS.Folks ask me where I get my ideas Three kids, fifteen grandchildren, two great grandchildren Note I was a very young grandmother Life is a zoo around here when they all come home In one Sunday afternoon there s enough ideas to keep me writing for years and years Seriously, ideas pop up at the craziest times When one sinks its roots into my mind, I have no choice but to write the story And while I m writing the characters peek over my shoulder and make sure I m telling it right and not exaggerating too much Pesky little devils, they are I have a wonderful agent, Erin Niumata, who continues to work magic and sell my work I m very lucky to have her and my editors who continue to believe in me.Happy reading



Comments The Blue-Ribbon Jalapeno Society Jubilee

  • ♥Rachel♥

    I’d say What Happens in Texas is more in the Women’s Fiction category than romance, but there is some of that. I won’t say much, but Cathy and Trixie held a special place in my heart. Cathy got the courage to finally stand up and be herself, finding happiness in the process. Poor Trixie with her (view spoiler)[ stupid, cheating (now ex) husband! I can’t believe Trixie or the other girls didn’t scratch Anna Ruth’s eyes out, or shoot off Andy’s bits!(hide spoiler)]What a complete dog [...]


  • Dianne

    I might be the only one that had problems with this novel. As much as I really wanted to love it, I usually love books about gossipy, witchy, sometimes backstabbing women…I had problems ever even connecting with some of these women.This is going to be difficult for me to write, since I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone.This book is essentially about a group of women that grew up together, some of whom are related. There is one set of twins, an old girlfriend of theirs, an elderly Aunti [...]


  • Beth

    Light-hearted and fun, What Happens in Texas is colorful tale of 4 women, ranch life and the ruckus that ensures.Billed as a contemporary romance, I going to say this is more woman’s fiction with a light touch of romantic entanglements. This was an easy read with a fun, simple and predictable plot with lots of self-imposed angst caused precariously by the characters. If you need to let your hair down, grab a glass a wine and not take life/your choice in reading too seriously What Happens in Te [...]

    original review appears at:chicklitworthreading.wordpressI love small Texas towns. I love the look of them. I love the individual feel of them. And while I didn’t grow up in a small Texas town, I have spent a lot of time in them. And after reading Blue-Ribbon Jalapeño Jubilee Society, I’m still not certain that Carolyn Brown has spent any time in a small Texas town. This is Ms. Brown’s first foray into chick lit, and it’s a fairly good first try. The publisher had this to say about Ms. [...]


  • Janet

    This is the first time I've read a book by this author. I thought this book was written haphazardly, and things didn't happen logically-revelations you'd expect to cause an uproar didn't, while minor things were blown out of proportion. Also, I hate it when an author doesn't write dialogue the way people actually talk-Brown uses "you are" for "you're", "I will" for "I'll", etc. It's my belief that when writing, you should use contractions and save the proper usage for when a character wants to e [...]

    3.5 Carolyn Brown is most known for her contemporary western romances and I was excited to try The Blue-Ribbon Jalapeno Society Jubilee her first venture into woman’s fiction. Brown delivered a humorous tale about four women living in Cadillac, Texas. This was a quick, quirky and enjoyable character driven tale about life in a small town renowned for growing the hottest jalapeños.Oh my, the things that go on Cadillac Texas! We meet the members of the Jalapeno Society run by; Violet Prescott t [...]


  • Jenny Demonic

    I spent most of my time reading this book just wondering if I really liked it or not. In the end, it wasn't horrible, but it's not something I will re-visit and I'm happy I bought it on a ridiculous sale.Twins Cathy and Marty, along with life-long friend Trixie, own Clawdy's Cafe in Cadillac, Texas. Their spitfire great-aunt Agnes lives across the street, and callgirl turned preacher Darla Jean is also on their block. Known for growing the hottest jalapenos in town, Cathy wins the blue ribbon ea [...]


  • Jonel Boyko

    Brown’s light-hearted writing style paints a vivid picture of this corner of Texas, inviting readers into an unforgettable story. She takes everyday life and shows you people how they really are. She brings the setting to life with picturesque yet extremely vivid descriptions that allowed me to walk through these ranches alongside the characters. All the while, Brown tells a complex yet easily enjoyable tale. Brown’s characters are fulfilling and a joy to get to know. I appreciated how the m [...]


  • Steve

    Oh, my God I LOVED this book! Think "Steel Magnolias" meets "Fried Green Tomatoes." It is so sassy and funny, with a great story and some of the best characters I've ever met. It is full of Southern women being total Southern bit*hes, and having a blast while doing it. It moves along at a brisk pace and kept me completely engrossed every step of the way. I just thought the cover was fun so I decided to read it, and I am so glad I did. One of the most enjoyable books I can remember reading in a w [...]


  • Susan

    A hilarious offering from Carolyn Brown, showing that men may come and go, but friendship is forever. Cathy, Marty and Trixie have been friends all their lives, and together own and run Miss Clawdy's Café. Darla Jean is a new addition to their circle, a former hooker who has turned preacher. At the beginning of the book, Cathy is engaged to Ethan, an up and coming politician, Marty is enjoying the single life with whatever cowboy catches her eye, Trixie has divorced two-timing Andy but is still [...]


  • Blodeuedd Finland

    This book is about 3 women (and so much more). A small town, gossip, a group and everything falls apart.First we have Trixie who had a cheating husband (she still fools around with him cos she can't resist him). She was nice, but yes dump that idiot and move on! Then we have the twins Cathy and Marty. They could not be different. The quiet and the loud one. Cathy is set to marry a boring man with a horrid mother. Marty is free and outspoken. I liked them both, maybe Cathy more since we followed [...]


  • Rachel Robinson

    The characters are wonderful and the story's pretty good, but did no one read this through to make sure it made sense before going ahead and printing it up? There are some major consistency problems -- someone somehow both walks and drives to the Dairy Queen, the subject of a sentence changes midway -- that probably should've been caught.


  • Heather andrews

    This book was just fine and dandy, but honestly there were too many people to keep track of, too many relationships to keep track of, I got confused in a few places. I just wished this book focused on one main couple and had the supporting characters take a back seat in the lead roles.


  • Linda

    Entertaining southern women's fiction! She started up the car and sighed. If only her fiancé, Ethan, could be as passionate as the men that Candy Parker wrote about. It didn't matter if they were cowboys, firemen, Navy SEALs, or even mechanics. They all had one thing in common. They knew how to turn a woman on until all she could think about were their hands and lips on every part of her body.WHAT HAPPENS IN TEXAS by Carolyn Brown is an entertaining fictional account of two twin sisters and a c [...]

    Carolyn Brown has caused me many sleepless nights.After reading the first page of her latest release, The Blue-Ribbon Jalapeño Society Jubilee, I knew it was going to happen again. Brown’s flare with words and situations makes you feel you know the characters. You’re drawn in to share in their joys and sorrow and can’t turn back.In this, her first mainstream fiction novel, Brown captures true friendship, small town living, and the adventurous journey love takes us on. The characters are w [...]


  • Sophia

    Feuding, small town gossip, relationship troubles, festivals, and friendship are all part of Carolyn Brown's first foray into women's fiction. And folks, she hit it out of the ballpark. I wasn't but a few pages in that I was delighted by the characters and town with their separate stories that come together in the end.The story introduces for friends: Marty, Cathy, Trixie, and Darla Jean along with a quirky bunch of friends, enemies, and neighbors from the small Texas town of Cadillac. Marty and [...]


  • Melinda

    I enjoyed this book--I feel that I have to say that up front because it isn't going to sound like I enjoyed it from the review. There were some real problems with this book, but the fact is that it was fun--and brainless--enough for me to put that all to the side.The first issue with this book is, despite the marketing, it is not a romance novel. There are certain hallmarks of Romance, elements that make a romance and Romance, and they weren't here. Instead, this is a work of contemporary fictio [...]


  • Heather Pearson

    Welcome to the ruthless and competitive world of food competitions. To most people, Cadillac, Texas, population of 1524 people, is a pleasant and nurturing place to live. Become a member of the Blue Ribbon Jalapeno Society and it becomes a cut-throat, back stabbing battle ground. Growing the hottest jalapenos and creating food products from them was the founding principle of this decades old club. The competition with the group and between the neighbouring town is quite fierce.Amid this rivalry, [...]


  • Aly

    I prepared myself to find this one less interesting because it's women's fiction but even without a love story, Carolyn Brown writing still work for me. And we can still enjoy some of her trademarks of funny situations and nuts old ladies with sharp tongue and shotguns.It's a little detail but I just don't think the new cover (the book was previously published with an other title and an other cover) is appropriate with the style of the book. It gives the impression it's a romance novel when it's [...]


  • Becky Burciaga

    This is the story of real small town life in Texas.een twins, Marty and Cathy, their great Aunt Agnes, and the sister's childhood friends Trixy and Jack. Between marriages planned, cancelled, rescheduled with different brides and grooms, there is nonstop hilarity to be experienced while reading this book. There's also a deeper more subtle thread that runs throughout the book involving domestic abuse that is more about awareness than involving the story itself. Ms Brown has numerous books under h [...]


  • Sara Palacios

    I was instantly smitten with the title, description and cover for this book and knew I would love it from the get go. Author Carolyn Brown pleases from the get go with trademark southern char, twang and hilarious wit. The Blue-Ribbon Jalapeno Society Jubilee is a fun southern tale that delivers a very fun and authentic tale that could and would definitely take place in a small southern town. I loved the adventures of the women and I loved all of the gossip that went on. Friendship and family are [...]


  • Linda Johnson

    I was instantly smitten with the title and cover of The Blue-Ribbon Jalapeno Society Jubilee and it proved to be a fun, sassy book filled with Southern charm. This was a real comfort read and I loved the characters.Welcome to Cadillac, a small Texas town known for their prize winning Jalapeno Peppers and even hotter gossip, but at the end of the day, it's the priceless friendships that are left standing


  • Alexandra

    This book is hard to rate because I loved and hated it at the same time. I felt like there were a lot of characters and a lot going on. I made the mistake last year of reading the third book in this series, not knowing it was part of a series. And I remember feeling the same way about that book. But some of these characters were more likeable. The town sounds like a pretty nice place and I really liked Cathy and Darla Jean. But the writing seemed a little over the top.


  • Tahleen

    Fun characters, but not a whole lot of story. I felt like there were too many subplots; in fact, I'm pretty sure it was all subplot and no main plot. If there had been an actual story that threaded everything together, it would have been a better read. Ultimately I was underwhelmed. Recommended to anyone who likes their chick lit set in Texas or thereabouts.


  • Bad Cookie

    I thought this book would be a fun read judging by the synopsis on the back of the book, but I was greatly disappointed. I felt like the story just sort of rambled on without any particular direction in mind. It was like I was reading a rough draft of something that needed fleshing out.


  • Jen

    instead of a love story this one is about true family and friendship between women, light, easy summer read


  • Lori

    Really enjoyed this story, I liked the characters and that the ends were all nicely tied up by the end of the book.


  • Nancy H

    This is very funny, very good chick-lit. I hope the author writes more about this group of women because when I got to the end of the book, I wanted to keep reading and find out what they do next.


  • Loree Mathews

    Just a fun relaxing amusing read. Goes down as smooth as Texas sweet tea.
