"Waiting On" Wednesday 49

Lone Star Legend by Gwendolyn Zepeda

When Sandy Saavedra lands her dream job with the popular website ¡Latino Now!, she can't wait to write hard-hitting pieces to combat all those stupid Latino stereotypes. While visions of Pulitzers dance in her head, her editor in chief is suddenly laid off, replaced by the infamous Dolores Villanueva O'Sullivan. Dolores has one mission: make ¡Latino Now! an internet phenomenon, no matter how many pandering puff pieces she has to pack onto its pages. Sandy doesn't see how she can keep this job without losing her soul, especially when she's sent to Middle-of-Nowhere Texas to investigate the dumbest legend her people ever created, the Chupacabra. She fears she's about to fail an assignment-and lose her job-until she meets Tío Jaime, a grandfatherly hermit who might be crazy, or might be the best thing that ever happened to Sandy's career.

Released January 25th 2010

I read her last book, Houston, We Have A Problema and enjoyed it so I think it would be fun to read another of her books! Sounds like a great plot!
What can't you wait for to be released?

"Waiting On" Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine!


  1. Is this a meme you created or just something you do every Wednesday? That is such a great idea, by the way!

  2. This does look like a fun book!

  3. Nevermind at my last comment. I see it's hosted elsewhere. Whoops! (It's before 8am..sorry) :/

  4. Sounds good to me,too. Besides, I have a soft spot for authors named "Gwendolyn." ;)
