The Tour in Review...

First, I want to thank all of the wonderful bloggers that featured and reviewed YOU AND TEQUILA during my Tasty Review Tour.  Your thoughts and insights are invaluable to me!  Next, I'd like to thank the lovely and super dedicated Lisa Filipe of Tasty Book Tours for coordinating the event.  I highly recommend her to any romance author out there looking to book a tour!  And last, but certainly not least, I would like to thank all the readers and fans that followed, commented, and entered right along with us.

Thank you!

To summarize and wrap-up the tour, I thought I'd post about how it all went.  Pretty darn, well, if you ask me (and since this is MY blog then you kinda did).  Here are all the review links again incase you missed one and would like to read it, share some blog love, and/or comment. I also copied a few short quotes from each stop.  Sometimes it was REALLY hard narrowing them down because there were so many wonderful things said about You and Tequila!  I Highly recommend you click the links and read them in their entirety!

--- "I enjoyed it and I think you will too."

Stop #6:  Busy Moms Book Reviews

--- "This book was a frustrating but good read."

Stop #7:  Romance Bookworm's Reviews
