I found this as a free e-book on Amazon and it sounded like a good book so I downloaded it…the price was right after all!  Plus if I didn’t like it I could delete it and not worry about losing money.  The Author is D.D. Scott

It’s Chick Lit, Gone-Country. Think Sex and the City meets Urban Cowboy.  Manhattan apparel designer Roxy Rae Vaughn, who’s also a still-in-the-closet, country line dancing queen, wants to be a fashion success story. Tired of being nothing more than a Fifth Avenue up-and-comer, thanks to her elitist parents, Roxy moves to Nashville, Tennessee and opens a boutique in a local tractor supply store, the only retail space she can afford. Short on cash and way, way down on luck, she rear-ends a pick-up truck belonging to a tomato-growin’, bootscootin’ cowboy who is anything but the perfect fit for her career plans, although he is her ideal dance partner. Can Roxy accept that her best fit is on the dance floor moving to her own style and her cowboy’s lead? 

Tomato farmer by day and bootscootin’ instructor by night Zayne McDonald doesn’t give a damn about winning Nashville’s heirloom tomato contest, even though his late father did. Zayne wants to honor his father, but what he really wants is to line dance his way to a winner’s spotlight. When he and Roxy are discovered by a huge dance show producer, Zayne learns it’s partnering with Roxy that’s his winning hybrid mix. That is, if he can keep her and the tomato contest away from Beefsteak Jack Baudlin, the toughest tomato man in CMT country.

My Thoughts:

I give this book 3 1/2 stars.  I don’t know if the book didn’t grab me or if it was my mood at the time, but it did take me several days to read this story.  Perhaps it didn’t sound quite as believable as it should have sounded?  But then it is fiction and who said that all books are believable?!

For free it wasn’t bad and the intro for the 2nd book sounds really good…but it revolves around cooking and who doesn’t like food?!
