Under the Covers

We found a summer read from a female author in each of our four Tidbits cities to keep you company during your vacay.

Long live a holiday weekend. Three glorious days of doing whatever sparks your firecracker. Burgers on the barbie, sleeping late, and maybe even a good book? We found a summer read from a female author in each of our four Tidbits cities to keep you company during your vacay.

HOUSTON
Heights hipster Katherine Center writes what she knows best – being a mom – but this isn't boring baby-lit. Her characters' lives in Houston are hilarious and sometimes heart-wrenching. We love all her books, including just-released Get Lucky, about a NYC ad exec who returns home to play surrogate for her sis.

AUSTIN
Shot Through The Heart cupcakes target="_blank">Jennifer Ross, along with the story of how a Dallas gal's charm mixes with life and love in the big city.

NEW ORLEANS
You love to eat, you love Nola. Welcome to The House on First Street, a decadent tale of globe-trotting _Vogue_ writer Julia Reed's move to the Garden District where she fixes up a historic home, eats out constantly and watches Katrina's after-effects. Her hilarious style, weaved with insider Crescent City knowledge, will make you ache for an invitation to one of her raucous dinner parties.

SAN ANTONIO
_Entertainment Weekly_ writer Karen Valby decided life in a place called Utopia, Texas, had to be pretty darn idyllic. So the Trinity University grad left New York and moved to the Hill Country town of 241 people. Her non-fiction chronicle, Welcome to Utopia, is getting all sorts of nationwide attention, and Valby says she surprised herself by deciding to settle in Texas when she was done.
