Back Cover Blurb:
Displaced Steel Magnolia Norah Burke doesn't know the meaning of failure. But when she threatens to blow the whistle on some shady business practices at her Chicago marketing firm, she gets fired fast as all get out. Licking her wounds, she heads back below the Mason-Dixon for a little home-grown Southern comfort.
Just a small town boy.
With his iron-clad Mississippi roots, Councilman Cam Crawford is a man who values tradition, preservation, and the love of a good dog. When a big box warehouse store tries to capitalize on his hometown's economic downturn, it seriously burns his biscuit. He's not about to let anyone's ambition destroy what he holds dear.
A David vs. Goliath story with a side of grits.
This unlikely pair just might be the perfect allies--in war and out. But as the battle to stop GrandGoods heats up and sparks of attraction turn to something more, will Norah's bigger-picture perspective go with Cam's "keep it as it is" attitude? Are they meant to be like biscuits and gravy? Or are they just as wrong as un-sweet tea?
The characters that Nolan develops were definitely a lot of fun to get to know. The main characters were so inviting. Although I enjoyed the setting and pace of the novel and the characters were fun to get to know, the yo-yo romance between the main characters kind of detracted the overall feel of the story for me. I felt as if they just needed to make up their minds already.
As a whole this was an enjoyable read. Nolan invites readers into the small town that she’s created and into the lives of her characters.
