When the woman puts herself several times into the same position of being alone and drinking heavily, is it really rape? These serious questions and other relationship dilemmas that affected Johnny Devreau and Katherine McCabe’s married life will get its answers while a messy scandal and other dirty secrets continue to unravel and create more trouble as it continues to haunt them for the rest of their lives is in author John Mayer’s novel Trouble In Texas.
