Barbecue cook-offs, country music and sisters on the road


Marci Hamilton is a retired kindergarten teacher. So what’s she doing running around Texas in a snazzy convertible with her flamboyant sister chasing the prize in a series of barbecue-sauce cook-offs? Sponsored by J.W. Watson, the Barbecue-A-Rama is a Texas-wide contest to discover the newest sauce. The sisters get lost on their way to the first cook-off, and J.W. Watson happens to be mending fences on his ranch when the ladies pull up asking for directions. Smitten by the blonde in the convertible, he makes the mistake of introducing himself as Johnny Walker. Not a fan of country music, Marci doesn’t know that he’s famous.


J.W. has had one disastrous marriage and he doesn’t plan to go for a second—but that’s before he meets Marci Hamilton. Marci’s last relationship hadn’t been optimal, either. But when unusual–and sometimes dangerous–accidents start happening at the BBQ kitchens, she turns to J.W. for help and the romance starts to simmer.


Can romance the second time around be hotter than a jalapeno BBQ sauce?
