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.

5.0 out of 5 stars delightful tale January 4, 2015
By corbpi
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Daisy...This Blossom Triumphs! March 18, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
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....

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".

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.

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.
