    In Western Swing, Sandlin revisits Kelly Palomino, the main character of his "Sex and Sunsets." Although Kelly now goes by the name of Loren (KP being a pen name of Loren, now a full-time author) he retains many of the same hyper-romantic, if misguidely so, character traits. This time, the story shifts between Loren's viewpoint and that of his wife, Lana Sue. Both are charmingly dysfunctional and find themselves in situations that provide for melodrama and warped comedy. Once again, the main str [...]

    This is first of Sandlin's I'd ever read years ago, and it was immediately following another odd first which totally would make Sandlin or his characters nod with satisfication and say something bluntly clever about it. It's about a writer running around the Rockies on a vision quest trying to sort out his rocky marriage while being chased by someone who seems to want to kill him. Somehow ridiculous plots are made plausible by the fractured realness of the characters. I guess it doesn't really m [...]

    This is my fourth Sandlin book, and it did not disappoint. This story is kind of like if Woody Allen loved Wyoming instead of New York and wrote a screenplay to embody the ethos of old-school country music. The story has it's dark moments, but Tim Sandlin can make anything fun. Loved it!

    This is a light, mindless read. I loved the writing style and the perfect ending. Sometimes you just have to read something that doesn't make you think too much.

    Western Swing" is a novel that starts out slowly, and then suddenly you are caught up. Sandlin's people are so real, and you find yourself caring about them, even if at first you don't especially like them. The book is divided into five parts, each part alternating the point of view of the novel's two protagonists, a married couple. Loren Paul (a writer) and Lana Sue (a minor country singer). The book gives us their convoluted life stories and in revealing moments shows us how they ended up toge [...]

    I enjoy Tim Sandlin's books. His writing style, his wit, his characters, his storylines. This one was good, but switching between character narration and past and present confused me a time or two. That's the only reason for four stars. I still recommend his books so you can find an unforgettable character or three, laugh a bit, and get lost in his stories.

    It missed 5 stars due to the sneaky gut-punch in the middle. I hate lost-children stories, especially when it's unexpected. Other than that, though.I always enjoy books set in Denver, and I loved the character of Lana Sue. I like that she was amoral and fucked up and still full of zest for life and eminently likable.

    In the end, Loren and Lana Sue are perfect for each other. Didn't hit me hard like Social Blunders or Lydia did.
