Book Description

Poet Daisy Young believes that when life hands you lemons, eat chocolate and get on with it, but no amount of Whitman Samplers gets her mind off her drowned fiancé – until she flees from Nashville to a small town in East Tennessee’s mountains and becomes best friends with Luke Strann.

The last thing she’s looking for is love, and certainly not with Luke, who’s as opposite from Brody as Fleetwood Mac is from Prince. Still, he’s a poet, and she’s been itching to know someone who’ll read her poetry. When their physical attraction can’t be denied, their relationship transforms into a “no promises, no demands” love affair.

It’s easy for Daisy to accept. After all, memories of her fiancé rule her heart, and according to Luke’s Elvis-loving, Harley-riding friend, Raleigh, Luke has a back door woman named Allison. But the more fun she has with Luke—hiking mountains, shooting fireworks, meeting a mysterious, prophetic woman in a red satin dress—the more frustrated she is with their uncertain future.

She calls it quits. Her year-long lease is up. Should she give up hope and return to her family in Nashville?

Then a near-fatal accident brings about the truth of Luke’s attraction to Allison, and Daisy must make the decision of her life.

Set in a time when Tina Turner rocks the radio and telephones are plugged into a wall, THE FIZGIG chronicles the adventures, the defeats, and the triumphs of Daisy and Luke, with doses of hilarity and quirky characters mixed within.

5.0 out of 5 stars WRITTEN VERY WELL, ENTERTAINING BOOK July 9, 2014
By Julie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A friend of mine recommended this book, and I’m glad she did because I really liked it. I had surgery and have been reading many books while I recuperate. This was one of the best ones I’ve read during recovery. I say that too because it is only the second one out of almost a dozen I wanted to review.

First I would say that Jill Vogt is a talented writer. Her descriptions of people and places are on the whole very good, and she does some really funny and interesting things with characters and plot.

I liked her main character, Daisy, because she is fun and smart and adventuresome. The story is that Daisy has lost, due to death, her boyfriend and is trying to find new and positive meanings and love in life. She’s like someone you would want to be friends with, and whenever someone can write such a real and likable character, it’s due to talent, like I said before.

Her descriptions of other characters are also realistic, because she uses individual details given in pieces through the book instead of the usual get-it out of the way descriptive blurb so many writers use. That’s an example of why I like this author’s style. Also she writes descriptions of nature very well. I looked at her biography and saw she is a poet, so that is probably why. Would recommend!

Jill Vogt is a lovely writer with an authentic voice whose characters we can all relate to. Her descriptions of Tennessee make me feel like I'm there in person and her story, while filled with a subtle sense of humor, also deals with the disappointments, pain, and joys we all face in life. I highly recommend the Fizgig and look forward to Jill's next book!

Just finished it! Loved it and laughed my way through. Ms. Vogt captured small-town, east Tennessee perfectly! Being from east Tennessee, it was fun to try to pick out the places referred to.

I love a book that has charming and well written characters and this book qualifies. The plot is well developed and believable. I found I did not want to put the book down, I became so interested in the developing relationship of the main characters. You will enjoy this book!

Entertaining and heartwarming story! The author gives such a clear picture of the main character Daisy you feel like you know her - even though Daisy struggles a bit with who she is -- and want to be her friend. I loved the witty banter between Luke and Daisy and rooted for their love.

As other reviewers have said, the descriptive prose carries you to the mountains of Tennessee so clearly you can see the haze of the Smokies. Having grown up in "them thar parts", it made me very nostalgic and homesick, longing for the Daisy and "Hillston" of my childhood. Even so I am sure readers from all over will connect with the characters and quickly turn pages hoping in the end Daisy finds true happiness.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes you want to spend time in Tennessee December 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Fizgig is a lovely little book that makes me want to spend time wandering the back roads of Tennessee, getting to know the characters that live there -and you KNOW they're characters after reading this. The descriptions of the scenery and people are so vivid that you can easily see them in your mind's eye. You can tell each word and phrase is carefully chosen, and that a lot of thought and effort went into each part of the story. I plan on loading this to my mom's Kindle, and recommending it to friends that enjoy descriptive, character driven fiction.

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable read October 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a very nice and sweet book. Daisy lost her fiance and is feeling lost and adrift herself. After a bit of car trouble she stays in the town her car broke down in eventually finding love in another guy, Luke, who she finds she has so much in common with. This wasn't a deep read but it was a nice summer or afternoon read while it was raining out. The characters played well together and the relationships seem real. I especially like the one between Daisy and her sister, Lula. Overall a very good book!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Fizgig is very insightful. November 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The author leads you to remembrances of the past and has great character descriptions. Luke surprises her (the main character) in many ways and keeps her happy, even when she is not certain of his devotion to her. She keeps cool regardless of her circumstances, and she learns little by little how Luke really feels about her. Her easy-going attitude pays off in the end, and she tries to help others get what they want in life. She hopes for other people's happiness as well as her own.

More About the Author

Originally from the mountains of Johnson City, Tennessee, I have published poetry in literary journals and small presses, including Appalachian Heritage, and taken top honors in two national poetry and short story competitions. I have also published articles about the performing arts and written grant applications to fund the arts, as well as a broad array of programs offered by a community action agency. While I never set out to live in various places throughout the United States, from Florida to Montana and several places in between, I've chalked it up to the "gypsy in my soul." The adventures were worth it, but the gypsy has landed in Louisiana where I live with my husband and dog.
