Dancing Naked in DixieEd With a stern warning and unemployment looming she's offered one last chance to rescue her career Julia embarks on an unlikely journey to the ‘Heart of Dixie’ Eufaula Alabama home to magnificent mansions swee Dancing Naked in Dixie is the type of novel to have you laughing on page one I really did this and I was on the train and pacing that doesn’t bore you or speed past youDancing Naked in Dixie is a must read for any fans of Jennifer Weiner or Sophie Kinsella It’s a bundle of laughs Poor Julia is a clutz to put it mildly She seems to attract trouble What I loved about the story is nothing felt forced and the narrative and scenes flowedIt’s a light read perfect for a long drive a plane ride hopefully less eventful than Julia experiences or to cheer up a boring weekendAn aspect of chic lit novels are how some characters are shallow — well I loved all the characters All varied and they didn’t all mesh into one constant voice Julia is clutzy Mary Katherine is cooky and OTT Over The Top Shug is a nice guy Andrew is the too perfect boyfriend PD is someone you’d want to have as a sister in law Ella Rae is a little shit of a child and it goes onTrue to Chic Lit this novel is about empowering Julia I felt sorry for her as she grew up attached to her mum never got to know her father but then her mum died young When her dad turns up as Julia’s boss I really felt like punching him because he spokeacted a bit obnoxiously To Lauren Clark’s credit he was always real and relatable on some levelBeing an Australian I rely heavily on descriptions in novels to take me to American settings Few books interest me in this regard because the placetown hasn’t transported me there I can proudly say that Dancing Naked in Dixie makes me want to see Alabama ya’ll And eat all the yummy food and see all the historic sites and and andUnfortunately though there were some aspects that didn’t uite satisfy me One was Julia’s constant knack for screwing everything up Even when I didn’t think it was possible The storyline about the political side of things I felt was introduced too late and then for a chunk it overpowered other aspects of the story such as the love interest Also the ending dragged on for a little too long with many things “explained” by the characters speaking dialogue to each other — this felt like it was there for the reader’s knowledge soOverall this novel has relatable characters a hilarious thread of comedy strung through the story and never dulls in pacing4 stars and recommended to ya’ll read the book to get the “insider’s” joke
