Book Review:

When I first saw the title “Dancing Naked in Dixie,” I knew I had to have a copy of this book for my library.  After all, who doesn’t want a great book like that in their library, if for no other reason than the great conversation you can start by saying, “So I was reading this book called “Dancing Naked in Dixie…”  At that time I just knew I loved the title, now I know that Lauren Clark has written a charming book that is as welcoming as the people in Eufaula, Alabama.

The story is charming.   It is about small town America where values still matter and people still leave their doors unlocked because it is safe enough to do so.  The story conveys that we all need to slow down, smell the flowers, enjoy one another, and occasionally get off our roller-coaster rush of life.

I took a little to get into the story, a chapter or so, but then the story had my total attention.  Romance, scheming, quirky characters, betrayal, this story has all that and a few twists besides.

I give this book 4 out of 5 clouds and whole-heartedly recommend it for your reading pleasure.

To celebrate the release of Dancing Naked in Dixie, we’re hosting a release day party. One lucky US-based winner will receive a paperback copy of Dancing Naked in Dixie, while the other three winners will receive an eBook copy. So four winners total.
