Dancing Naked in Dixie is the title of Lauren Clark’s second novel released on May 21st 2012.
Julia Sullivan lives life in fast-forward. As a travel writer, she jet sets to Europe, South America, and the Caribbean with barely a moment to blink or sleep. But this perpetual motion—and her own scattered personality—catches up with her. When she stops in New York to pick up her next assignment, Julia discovers she’s on the verge of being fired.
With a stern warning, and unemployment looming, Julia is offered one last chance to rescue her career. She embarks on a journey to the ‘Heart of Dixie’—Eufaula, Alabama—home to magnificent mansions, sweet tea, and the annual Pilgrimage. During this spring tour of historic homes, visitors flock to the city and enjoy turn of the century architecture, delightful meals, and Southern hospitality.
Despite a series of mishaps, a trip to the ER, and one major wardrobe disaster, Julia soon realizes she’s fallen in love with Eufaula and her charming host, Shug Jordan. But when a real estate developer announces plans to turn the city into a tourist spot, Julia’s thrown off-balance once again. How could this happen? Is there a connection between Shug and the developer? And can Julia’s story help save Eufaula and the annual Pilgrimage?
