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 Daisy, Daisy, Give Me Your Answer, Do June 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
As you will learn in the book, Fizgig (what a great name for a book!) means, "a gadding flirting girl or woman" and the book's main character, Daisy, is that; but she's also much more.

Daisy's fiance has drowned in a boating accident, rendering her despondent and uncertain about what path to follow in rebuilding her life. Packing up two suitcases and wearing a cloak of sorrow, she leaves her home in Nashville to try to start a new life in East Tennessee.

There she meets the handsome and rakish Luke, whose friendship she enjoys before their mutual physical attraction, love of poetry, and passion for nature turns to love. But Luke has a dark past which ties him to another woman, and it becomes more and more difficult for Daisy to accept that she is sharing Luke's bed with that woman. Daisy must put away her past and look to her future as she makes difficult decisions about her relationship with Luke.

The author's ability to write honest emotions kept me intrigued. Jill Cox Vogt's writing style is beautiful, her descriptive prose is a pleasure to read, and her talent as a poet is sprinkled throughout the book.

The Fizgig is an absolutely charming book that kept me turning the pages. It is definitely a book to add to your summer reading list!

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 The Fizgig June 13, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great summer read- light and fun. Good way to pass a summer day except I didn't want Daisy's world to end so I limited myself to a couple of chapters a day. I can actually hear Daisy's voice as she describes things with her sweet Southern lady sense of humor. She reminds me of a good friend who was so much fun to hang around with. It was nice to revisit the 1980s. This is a character I wouldn't mind hearing more from.

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.
