Lauren Clark has done it again—this time with "Dancing Naked in Dixie!" I was sucked in from the very first sentence:

"The new editor needs you, Julia." …Dolores Stanley leaps over the cubicles and follows me like a panther stalking its prey.

Julia Sullivan is a travel writer at Getaways magazine, headquartered in the heart of New York City. Julia is your typical New York businesswoman - always on the run, balancing her busy career with her fast-paced life like a world-class circus juggler. She is paid to jet set around the world and write quirky articles about her travels, articles that have won her every major award possible for her industry. Her personal life is filled with never-ending charity events, cocktail parties, museum openings and her often much neglected boyfriend, Andrew. The balls that she has managed to so expertly balance and keep in the air for so long are all about to come crashing down around her. Her new boss, David, Getaways new editor, whom Julia despises, has come to the conclusion that Julia's writing has lost its edge and it's time to take some drastic measures. Julia's cushy lifestyle is about to change when David cancels her upcoming trip to Bali, instead sending her to a small town in Alabama to cover the annual Christmas Pilgrimage. This is Julia's last chance to pull her writing and her life together. What ensues is a whirlwind journey into the Deep South that will run you through the gamut of emotions - you will laugh out loud; you will cry; you will pull for Julia through each and every one of her struggles; and yes, in the end, you will even find yourself falling in love with her.

Ms. Clark's ability to bring her characters to life is second to none. Be careful…if you close your eyes for a moment you just might find yourself being transported to Shorter Mansion enjoying one of PD's Pillow Pockets. This is one piece of chick lit that this guy really enjoyed! I have no doubt that you will too.

I can't wait to see what else life has in-store for one Julia Sullivan. Stay Tuned!
