This is small town south at it’s best. Think of smooth southern charm hiding back stabbing social leaders and social values that have been the same for decades and you’ll have the setting for this fun romance. Characters have known each other for years and everyone in town knows everyone else’s business. Landon shakes the town up when he moves his phone sex business into town and then sets up a contest between his two best friends. While Landon isn’t around anymore, he does send messages from the grave which is kind of spooky. Yet, this is anything but a horror story. It’s light hearted, romantic and pure fun as a former mean girl tries to convince everyone she’s changed including her ex-fiancé. Secondary characters are just as interesting as the primary leaving you hoping for more books. This was a delight to read.
This is part of a series but the previous book does not have to be read to enjoy this one. Each book stands alone.
Dixie has only come back to her home town because her best friend, Landon has died. She really doesn’t want to see her ex, Caine, nor does she really want to interact with any of the town. However, she does have to go to the reading of the will where she discovers that Landon has set up a contest between Dixie and Caine. The winner will inherit his phone sex business, Call Girls. Between trying to get people to realize that Dixie has changed from the mean girl she was to listening to the town gripe about wanting to get rid of Call Girls, there is something always going on. The attraction between Dixie and Caine is still there but the trust is gone. Can the trust be rebuilt?
Former mean girl Dixie Davis is back in town and it's payback time. Literally. Dixie is flat broke and her best—make that only—friend, Landon, is throwing her a lifeline from the Great Beyond. Dixie stands to inherit his business…if she meets a few conditions:
She's got to live in Landon's mansion.
With her gorgeous ex-fiancé, Caine Donovan.
Who could also inherit the business.
Which is a phone sex empire.
Landon's will lays it out: whoever gets the most new clients becomes the owner of Call Girls. Dixie has always been in it to win it, especially when it comes to Caine, who's made it clear he's not going down easy. (Oh, mercy.) Can Dixie really talk dirty and prove that she's cleaned up her act? Game on!
