Travel writer Julia Sullivan lives life in fast-forward. She jet sets to Europe and the Caribbean with barely a moment to blink or sleep. But too many mishaps and missed deadlines have Julia on the verge of being fired.
With a stern warning, and unemployment looming, she's offered one last chance to rescue her career. Julia embarks on an unlikely journey to the ‘Heart of Dixie’—Eufaula, Alabama—home to magnificent mansions, sweet tea, and the annual Pilgrimage. Julia arrives, soon charmed by the lovely city and her handsome host, but her stay is marred by a shocking discovery. Can Julia's story save her career, Eufaula, and the annual Pilgrimage?
My take on this book:
I fell in love with Lauren Clark's writing style after reading "Stay Tuned," so needless to say I was totally excited when I learned that she had written another southern based novel.
Julia is a paid travel writer for Getaways magazine, so she is used to globe trotting, visiting exotic places so that she can write her stories. After returning home from her latest trip she meets and is a bit shocked as to who the new editor of Getaways is, and when he informs her that he is planning on taking the magazine in a different direction so instead of Julia heading off to Bali for her next story she is going to Eufaula, Alabama even though she swore she would rather dance naked than to go to Alabama. Since her job is on the line it's Alabama or bust for Julia!
If you enjoy a grantastic story with southern charm, and a quirky cast of characters, along with a fast paced plot,some laugh out loud moments, a smattering of romance along with father/daughter conflict your going to love "Dancing Naked In Dixie" by Lauren Clark!
Lauren Clark is the author of Stay Tuned and Dancing Naked in Dixie. She writes contemporary novels set in the Deep South; stories sprinkled with sunshine, suspense, and secrets.
A former TV news anchor, Lauren adores flavored coffee, local book stores, and anywhere she can stick her toes in the sand. Her big loves are her family, paying it forward, and true-blue friends.
