She has 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.

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'll admit... l had to lookup up the definition of Fizgig in the dictionary: A silly or flirtatious young woman; a small kind of firework. Both of these descriptions accurately portray the protagonist, Daisy Young.
In the pages of this quirky book, you are brought to realize that sometimes you DO have to go through hell before you get to heaven, to coin the words of a song...
Daisy Young lost the love of her life, Brody to a terrible accident. It flat out devastated her. There was also a relationship with an older man named Cameron. Of the two, Brody was the one man she couldn't let go of. His memory was seared in her mind and I think she just didn't want to let go. She was afraid.
Quite by chance, Daisy ends up in a small town in Tennessee, in an attempt to escape and start all over again. Trying to pick up the shattered pieces of her life, she meets Luke.
Sometimes, love comes into your life through something as simple as a friendship. After meeting Luke, Daisy quickly realized that she and Luke shared a love of poetry. Their friendship started out innocently, yet blossomed into so much more. It was simple, it was deep, it was passionate, it was complicated. It's as if the two of them were destined to be together, yet a dark horse, a woman named Allison was thrown into the equation. Daisy finally gives herself, heart, body and soul to Luke, yet she is told by one of Luke's friends that Allison and Luke are 'friends with benefits'. Where does that leave Daisy? She's falling in love with Luke, but is SHE actually the friend with benefits? Why does Luke hold feelings for Allison? What is the hold she has on him?
Throughout this journey, you will feel the unconditional friendship that develops between Luke and Daisy. You'll feel as she spreads her wings and lets go....

Jill Cox Vogt has a charming voice and a true gift for descriptive writing. Her novel made me long for the days before cell phones and computers and being so unrelentingly connected to the rest of the world. Heroine Daisy (I love the name Daisy, plus it's my favorite flower) is delightful as she goes between sorrowful angst at losing her fiance and joy at finding a new love in Luke, who is truly a free spirit. Their story wends and and winds its way through the gorgeous scenery in the hills of Tennessee and Jill makes sure we are right there with them. Several quirky secondary characters make the ride all that more enjoyable. I look forward to more from this gifted writer!

I was not sure about this book until I was into it. Then I did not want to put it down. Its provocative, informative illustrative while entertaining, and so true to life I envisioned characters based on people I know. It reads so well, and has a happy ending, you just wonder how you haven't read it before now.

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!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book! So many of the references to deeds done or contemplated in younger years resounded in me; brought back many memories. I enjoy reading stories in which characters " come into themselves".
