    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

    Eufaula…..Ala-freaking-bama. You have got to be kidding me…right?!?! Those were the first thoughts of Julia Sullivan’s first day back state side about her newest assignment. Not only has her entire world revolved around constantly moving to the most exotic places on the globe, she is damn good at her job. If only she could get organized and get a piece in on deadline. Her first steps back in Getaways magazine headquarters and she just knew that her goose was cooked. Meeting the mystery boss first thing in the morning wasn’t the best idea, but things were only going to go downhill from there. Julia has made her life’s work about everywhere but home, flitting from one destination to the next without a thought, but a rude wake-up call by her new boss, David, will change everything for her in an instant. Make this story great or you can have your walking papers. The worst images were all Julia could think of until she landed – complete city girl in the Deep South – but the surprises won’t end for Julia. Will this little town be the undoing of this confirmed New Yorker or will Julia get the wake up of a lifetime that will change her life forever?

    Shug Jordan just wanted to keep his town historic and grow old where he grew up. Bringing in a big city reporter to shine the light on his little jewel of a city seemed like a good idea until Julia blew into town, disaster in her wake. Not one minute passed that Shug wasn’t saving her from yet another problem. If only he could figure out why this Yankee kept his thoughts churning and his body humming. She is nothing like the women he usually goes for but maybe that is the change up he needs. When a plan to destroy some of beautiful Eufaula comes to Shug’s attention can he foil the horrible plan and still get the girl in the end? Or will he have to lose one to have the other?

    Sometimes you just need a little southern hospitality and good down home cooking to bring everything into perspective.

    Favorite Quote: “Past and present meet seamlessly in the heart of Eufaula, Alabama, home to breathtaking natural beauty and magnificent architecture. A living tribute to our nation’s proud history, Eufaula is a treasure to experience with the senses; one that must be preserved for generations to come” – Shug Jordan

    I had high hopes for this but 200 pages in and I was done. Did the author do any research on Alabama or actually take time to talk to someone? She plays on every goober head, bless your heart, backwoods stereotype with every character from Alabama. Her plotlines are inconsistant and the main character is insufferable.

    She's got 99 problems

    And, yes, a XXtch is one.

    I enjoyed this story, but had a hard time relating to the main character. Even before she got on the plane to Atlanta and eventually wound up in Eufaula, Alabama, Julia Sullivan revealed a host of concerns... dead mother, daddy issues, accident prone, ADHD, slipping work, impending unemployment, a boyfriend she doesn't exactly love... Then, she arrives in Alabama, and there are a whole host of other things to deal with. And when her boss/dad gets involved towards the end, all credulity goes out the window.

    I'm not saying it's not a well-written, enjoyable story. I just think if Lauren Clark had pared down these issues, the story could have been more coherent, more enjoyable.

    A Lilac Wolf and Stuff Review

    Before we have any misunderstandings, I did enjoy this story...for the most part. Julia did start getting on my nerves when she had accident after accident and whatever man happened to be around jumped in to take care of her.

    The other issue that popped up were the numerous inconsistencies. I was honestly surprised to see the number of early readers she thanked. They really should have let her know about them. Take the boyfriend, for example. Early in the book she goes into how he hates traveling, really hates it and so they work out well because she is so exhausted from the traveling she does all the time so it doesn't bother her they never go anywhere. Then later on Julia thinks about how he took her to New Orleans for her birthday and on a sky diving see where I'm going here?

    But around that, I did enjoy the story. Julia made great friends down south, even though she never wanted to go there. She learned more about her estranged father than she ever thought possible. And she met a man, although romance was not at the center of this story. She has a boyfriend nearly all the way through it, and I respect that Julia knew she wasn't a very good girlfriend.

    Julia isn't a stagnant character either. She goes through a lot of changes, and likes who she is more at the end than at the beginning. I like her more too, although I didn't think she was that rude at the beginning.
