These Texas girls are now rosebuds just like they always wanted...well most of them have. Mac, as we know, isn't as excited as the other girls, but at least she has her best guy friend, Alex to rely on, that is until the new girl starts to take a place by Alex's side. Mac is even more frustrated when she starts to question her true feelings for Alex. Ginger is having a slightly better time. She even gets to have a portait painted of her by a painter she remembers badly from her childhood. Jo Lynn is growing even more suspicious of Dillon's actions when she sees Laura's number on his phone. Now Jo Lynn is determined to do whatever is takes to bring Laura down.

The Debs: Love, Lies, and Texas Dips made a great sequel to The Debs. I'm not usually into books filled with catty drama. But somehow Susan McBride is able to capture my attention and keep it. Sometimes I want to be frustrated with the girls. If only they could talk to each other about their problems most things would be solved. I'm glad though that this doesn't happen. The betrayal is all too realistic. The friendship between Laura, Ginger, and Mac is just so refreshing. It's nice to see a group of friends that don't believe rumors and stick up for each other. I have a fun time reading about all of the misunderstandings and fights. That may sound weird but my life is pretty relaxed, I need some drama sometimes. Overall I would say that The Debs: Love, Lies, and Texas Dips is a very enjoyable read that will keep you rooting for the underdog and trying to discover the truth.
