Plum Orchard, Georgia, is about to get even juicier

Notorious mean girl Dixie Davis is back in town and it's payback time. Literally. Dixie is flat broke and her best make that only friend, Landon, is throwing her a lifeline from the Great Beyond. Dixie stands to inherit his business if she meets a few conditions:

She's got to live in Landon's mansion.

With her gorgeous ex-fiancé, Caine Donovan.

Who could also inherit the business.

Which is a phone sex empire.

Wait, what?

Landon's will lays it out: whoever gets the most new clients becomes the owner of Call Girls. Dixie has always been in it to win it, especially when it comes to Caine, who's made it clear he's not going down easy. (Oh, mercy.) Can Dixie really talk dirty and prove that she's cleaned up her act? Game on!

My Thoughts

Witty, charming, zany and honest all come to mind when thinking up words to describe the first book in author Dakota Cassidy’s newest series.

Not having read Talk This Way I missed out on a bit of the background for the series but it in no way detracted from enjoying Dixie’s story in Talk Dirty To Me.

Plum Orchard Georgia sounds like an ideal small town environment, it is filled with lots of civic pride in the community but that same pride also prohibits acceptance of change especially when it concerns people who do not conform to certain accepted ideal behaviors.

This narrow minded viewpoint was a thorn in her side from childhood on and Dixie Davis has never managed to leave behind her past mistakes so when returns home for her best friend’s funeral her hope is to make a quick getaway without confronting anyone, best laid plans and all that fall by the wayside after the reading of Landon’s will.

I found myself charmed by several characters besides Dixie, especially Em Amos and Landon’s assistant Sanjeev and was totally repulsed by the maliciously vindictive Louella Palmer as she tried over and over to discredit Dixie forcing her to leave town for good.

An all around honest look at the best and worst of growing up in a small town and having to return to face your youthful mistakes as a reformed adult.

Reading a review copy of book 2 Something To Talk About soon which release at end of May and the story line which follows Emmeline Amos promises to be just as full of surprises as this one was!
