Daydreams in Dixie by Beth Albright - Book Review
About The Book:
Southern talk show host and former pageant queen Annabelle Harper certainly knows a thing or two about romance. She is, in fact the local authority on love in Tuscaloosa Alabama as the host of her own radio talk show for the lovelorn: Saved By The Belle. With nearly 50 happy couples to her credit, no one could argue with her success. Annie has never been wrong about the heart of a person. Strange thing is, she can't seem to get past five dates before the dreaded break-up in her own lovelife.
That is until a new guy pops into town--and a Yankee at that! Sparks fly between Annie and Matt Brubaker – the mysterious stranger who has more than love on his mind. His interests are focused on developing a new company in Tuscaloosa. But his new business will put Annie's best friend out of business, and place Annie smack dab in the middle of a hot southern mess!
Now Annie must choose -- the passion she feels for Matt and the love she has for her long-time friend. The conflict reaches a boiling point and puts her in the middle of a major city-wide protest, with Annie at the microphone. Will she betray her BFF and fall in love with the wrong man? Or like the true southern belle that she is, will she keep guarding her best friends back till the bitter end--even if it means losing what could finally be the love of her life.
Beth Albright is at her sassy best with this new Southern page-turner, filled with the Beth Albright brand we have come to love--Sexy romance, comedy and a shot of mystery. Think Steel Magnolias meets Sex In The City--this ride is passionate, sexy and full of love – both the romantic kind and the kind for the women who always have each other's backside covered in a crisis. Grab your best girlfriends and hang on for this sassy southern beach read!

If you are looking for a lift in your spirits or a little ray of sunshine in your day, then pick up a copy of "Daydreams In Dixie," the latest book from Southern author Beth Albright - within these pages you'll find love, laughter, and good ol' downhome fun.
Beth Albright's skill as a storyteller is once again evident in this sassy, brassy and a little bit classy story - in other words - this gal can sure spin a tale! I love how she brings out the best in her characters, filling them with personality galore (and bringing back characters from previous books who are all inter-related to each other!), and I ADORE how she makes the town of Tuscaloosa, Alabama come alive for the reader through her absolutely perfect descriptions of this favorite town of mine!
And if you are looking for a quick lesson in all things Southern - from charm to beauty queens to lip-smacking food - you can find it here. I just can't say enough good things about Beth's writing. I am partial to her "Sassy Belles" series, but these last few tales in her "In Dixie" series are just as wonderful!
Do yourself a favor - grab a cool glass of sweet tea and one of Beth Albright's books, especially "Daydreams In Dixie." You'll be whistling "Dixie" in no time!
