Roxie Treymayne is devastated by a divorce after finding out
her husband was cheating on her, so she decides to change
things up. She
dyes her dark hair blonde, gets a tattoo and begins wearing
more provocative clothes.
She plans to head to Paris when her brother tells her
their mother is ill and needs their help.
Bringing her eccentric maid, Tundy, with her, they head back
to their hometown of Glory, North Carolina.
While caring for her mother, she gets involved with a
group of people from the assisted living center in town.
Obsessed with CSI, they get excited when it seems
there might be a mystery afoot.
Also in town is her first love, Sherrif Nick Sheppard.
Beautiful and causing her to feel the passion she
thought was lost, Nick sends mixed signals as he deals with
his past. He
isnít sure he can handle someone so obviously wild and
untamed; however, he canít keep away from her.
Talk of the Town
is a funny, very readable romp.
The characters are all well drawn; the story takes
turns at unexpected places.
Every word serves a purpose; there are no wasted
loved Roxie and her desire to change herself.
Nick is a fascinating character.
And the comic relief (the maid and the older folks)
is well placed and well timed.
I definitely Joyfully Recommend Talk of the Town.
