Dirty to Me-Dakota Cassidy

Dirty to Me Dakota Cassidy Mira, Apr 29 2014, $7.99 ISBN 9780778316190 For her only friend growing up in Plum Orchard, Georgia would Dixie Davis return home. Driving from Chicago, the “mean girl”, as the locals labeled her and they still believe this to be true even with a decade having passed, wishes it was not for Landon Well’s funeral. Landon’s will proclaims a contest between once engaged couple Dixie and fuming (at her) Caine Donovan. Whoever obtains the most customer calls wins Landon’s lucrative phone sex company. Needing the money, Dixie decides to go for it though the townsfolk mistreat her in retaliation for her previous nastiness; she takes everything ugly thrown at her as Dixie feels she deserves this for being the evil pariah. However, Caine begins to observe how different this Dixie is from the one who broke his heart although he fears his love for her may be tainting the truth. Dirty To Me is an entertaining second chance at love (and life) rural Georgia romance. Dixie owns the storyline as she accepts her just dues even from an abusive over the top avenger but also begins to believe she deserves love too; Caine is more typical of the subgenre while his transition from cruelty to passionate believer is cleverly portrayed. Readers will enjoy this small-town regional contemporary as from the grave Landon tries to bring together his BFFs before she dries up and he turns to dust. Harriet Klausner
