Praise for Dancing Naked in Dixie

"... a delightful, heartwarming read full of Southern secrets, sweet tea, and a touch of Dixie romance."  
     - Juliette Sobanet, author, Sleeping with Paris and Kissed in Paris
 
"There's nothing more fun then plunking a tried and true New Yorker down in the Deep South. I read this book in a day and loved every second of it!"
    - Kate Rockland, Author, 150 Pounds
 
"Lauren Clark has captured the real life personalities of the hip New Yorker and the caring Southern ladies and gentlemen. This book is a must read for all romantics, young and old."      
     - Trudi LoPreto, Readers Favorite

"The story is sassy and sexy; her characters are fresh and real. I adored Dancing Naked in Dixie and I'm sure you will too."
      - Laura Pepper Wu, Author, Wow! Glowing Bride in 30 Days


"A splash of humor and a healthy dollop of romance make this a fun read from beginning to end."
      - Lynnette Spratley, Author, Memory's Child

"I read Dancing in one sitting! Loved it and didn't want it to end! Anxiously waiting for the next one."
      - Elizabeth Wright 

From the Author

Ms. Clark uses her own experience to write her novels, and much like the main character Julia in 'Dancing Naked in Dixie' she was drawn to the charm of the Deep South and made the move from New York state to Mobile, Alabama 10 years ago.

"There is so much to love about my 'new' home. The people are friendly and welcoming, they are fiercely proud of their heritage and history, and have a long-standing belief in the importance of church, family, and community.
 
I wanted to take some of my own experiences, insert them into Julia's life, and watch how she grows and changes as a result. The fun of this storyline involves Julia discovering how wrong she was about the Deep South. It's a life-changing experience for her. It's my hope that readers feel that Dixie honors and celebrates cultural differences."

Format: Paperback
I read Clark's first novel Stay Tuned awhile ago and really enjoyed it so I was eager for her next book. Clark did not disappoint and delivered another enjoyable novel.

Julia arrives, soon charmed by the lovely city and her handsome host, but her stay is marred by a shocking discovery. Can Julia's story save her career, Eufaula, and the annual Pilgrimage?

This was the first of two books that I've read recently that featured a travel writer and I've decided that I love reading about travel writers. They seem to always have some sort of commitment issue that needs to be worked out and it allows for lots of pretty scenery along the way.

I think I needed more romance in this book. The focus of the book wasn't the love story but I think I needed just a bit more of a relationship between Julia and Shug. I knew they'd end up together but there weren't enough of those little moments for me. Or maybe it was that a situation came up that put his girlfriend out of the picture...it wasn't that he "chose" Julia as much as he liked her and then his girlfriend was conveniently out of the way. Sorry - it's hard to explain that without giving too much away!

My favourite part of this book was reading about Julia's journey. Her boss seems to know just what she needs to figure stuff out - even though he sort of has his own agenda. She's so unstable at the beginning of the book yet she doesn't quite realize that. It takes the wonderful folk in Eufaula to show her how to get back to solid ground.

Overall, I liked Dancing Naked in Dixie but I didn't love it. Have you ever read a book and wondered if you should have left it for a later date because you just weren't feeling it but knew you would normally enjoy it immensely? OK, that might just be me but that's how I felt about this one. I think many chick lit lovers would really like this one so I encourage you to pick up Lauren Clark's latest and find out for yourself.

I had the immense pleasure of not only helping edit but reading this book before it was released. Lauren Clark is a fabulous writer, a remarkable voice in women's fiction and she really knows what it takes to create a great story. This book has all the emotions, from happiness, to dramatic moments, love, generosity, the close knit ties of family, wanting to bawl your eyes out and cheering for the heroine! I loved it from beginning to end. Dancing Naked in Dixie is a book that every woman will want to read and should read! The plot is stimulating and exciting, the story is touching and beautiful and the characters become a part of your own family from the first meeting. It's a book that you will not want to put down and one that you will not want to end long after your done. I could easily find myself going back and reading this one over and over again.

A truly amazing read, with just the right amount of everything to make it a fast favorite. Grab a copy today!

I was given a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it.

I thought this was a wonderful story full of Southern charm. Some characters were charming, some vengeful and others were full of inner demons. The author was able to take all of these character types and weave them into a story that includes comedy, sadness, anger, dishonesty and love. This is a romance with a bit of intrigue. I have to admit though that I don't understand the title, there is nothing mentioned to do with dancing or nudity. The story can be read by just about anyone as it does not include lewd/graphic story lines of any kind and also does not include bad language.

Julia Sullivan is a well known travel reporter for Getaways Magazine. She is use to jetting off to new and exotic places at the drop of a hat but things are about to change. While she was gone on her last assignment a new CEO was named and it is someone Julia knows, better than some, but not as well as she should. After arriving back at the magazine she is called to the CEO's office for a meeting and she is shocked to learn his identity. Right from the start he gives her an assignment that she is not keen on. He tells her that she will be staying in the U.S. for awhile. The magazine will be doing travel stories "off the beaten path", these are what the people want, local flavor and flare. He also tells her she must pay attention to her subject matter and write a good story because her job depends on it.

When Julia arrives in the town she is to write about she meets all sorts of colorful people and instead of quickly writing a story by just grabbing facts and quick interviews, she stays and tries to soak up information by talking to people and experiencing the town.

Dancing Naked in Dixie is Lauren's second novel, set out to be released on May 21st, was a fun fabulous contemporary romance novel!
Dancing Naked in Dixie

It follows the story of Julia Sullivan, a traveler writer for Getaway magazine. After coming back from a trip from Italy, she finds the magazine has a new boss, someone she's got quite the past with...and he gives her one final warning to get her act together, after writing a few quite not so fabulous articles, and not being deadlines, and being late for work multiple times. To prove she can do it, he gives her a new assignment...write an article on Eufaula, Alabama and talk about their annual Pilgrimage festival.

Upon arrival, Julia has quite a few mishaps, including getting her window shield broken on her car, getting a bee sting, and other problems that come her way. She hosted around about super handsome man, who has a not so nice girlfriend. And along the way finds out their might be more to Eufaula than she anticipated.

Instead of "Dancing in Dixie" she finds out a lot about herself, that she had been in denial about for the past few years.

I truly enjoyed this novel! I thought it was super cute, a fun contemporary romance, with a bit of action almost in the end. Lauren Clark has impressed me once again! I did find the ending a little bit predictable, but you know, most contemporary romances are like that, and that's probably why I like them so much...you know they are going to have a happy ending :).
If you like the writing styles of Emily Giffin and Sophie Kinsella, than I believe you are really going to like Lauren's stories! :)
