Dancing Naked in Dixie is Lauren's second novel, set out to be released on May 21st, was a fun fabulous contemporary romance novel!
It follows the story of Julia Sullivan, a traveler writer for Getaway magazine. After coming back from a trip from Italy, she finds the magazine has a new boss, someone she's got quite the past with...and he gives her one final warning to get her act together, after writing a few quite not so fabulous articles, and not being deadlines, and being late for work multiple times. To prove she can do it, he gives her a new assignment...write an article on Eufaula, Alabama and talk about their annual Pilgrimage festival.
Upon arrival, Julia has quite a few mishaps, including getting her window shield broken on her car, getting a bee sting, and other problems that come her way. She hosted around about super handsome man, who has a not so nice girlfriend. And along the way finds out their might be more to Eufaula than she anticipated.
Instead of "Dancing in Dixie" she finds out a lot about herself, that she had been in denial about for the past few years.
I truly enjoyed this novel! I thought it was super cute, a fun contemporary romance, with a bit of action almost in the end. Lauren Clark has impressed me once again! I did find the ending a little bit predictable, but you know, most contemporary romances are like that, and that's probably why I like them so much...you know they are going to have a happy ending :).
If you like the writing styles of Emily Giffin and Sophie Kinsella, than I believe you are really going to like Lauren's stories! :)
Also a super EXCITING surprise awaited me as I read the acknowledgements in the back of the book, something I always like to do, because some authors write some really funny ones, and thank some pretty awesome people!! MY NAME was in there!! Yes, MY name!! How awesome is that??!!
|That's my name in there!!|
I want to give a huge thank you to Lauren for allowing me to read her first two wonderful books!
And if you all get a chance, download your copies of Dancing Naked in Dixie on May 21st, next month!! :)
