Book Description:


In the Deep South, one of the first questions asked when meeting someone new in a small town is, "Who's your daddy?" The answer defines you as a person. Not knowing is disheartening.

Sara McLaughlin never knew she was adopted and is stunned to realize that if she wants to find out the questions burning in her brain as to the 'why' she was given up at birth, and who her father might be, she has to live in her birth mother's apartment for the next six weeks.

Grant St. Romain, attorney, is supposed to be helping, but the hunky dimpled devil is making her mind think of other things.

Can she find the truth? Or will she break her heart trying to find out the answers in Boggy Bayou, where many secrets are hidden?

My Book Review: 

There's nothing better than a small Southern town and its secrets! Welcome to Boggy Bayou, Louisiana!

Sara McLaughlin received a shocking letter from attorney Grant St. Romain stating that she was adopted, and that he represents her late birth mother Maudie Cooper. Sara left her home in Baton Rouge for Boggy Bayou to find out the truth about her birth parents and to get answers to why she was adopted. What she didn't expect was to be the center of attraction from the whole town of Boggy Bayou. Sara and Grant's quest to find out who her birth daddy is whips the town into a frenzy with rumors and secrets. And in the middle of all that fun, Sara and Grant have a mutual attraction for each other that is more sizzling than a 4th of July fireworks display! So come along for the journey, where the details behind small town friendships, relationships and secrets are deeply hidden!

The Devil Has Dimples is a sassy little ol' Southern romance story that is so entertaining, it will put a smile on your face! The author provides the reader with a sweet romantic storyline with a twist of mystery that engages the reader to join in Sara's quest with intriguing clues throughout the story. The story is mainly told in the first person narrative by Sara, but the first and last chapters are narrated by Boggy Bayou's resident newspaper owner/reporter T-Jack Couvillion, and in between are journal entries from Maudie Cooper. The reader is introduced to a lot of eccentric characters from the small Southern town of Boggy Bayou, whose antics will keep you in stitches. Sara's arrival in Boggy Bayou throws the townsfolk into a frenzy, their little ol' way of life is disrupted and all hell breaks loose. This neat little story has it all: a fun puzzle of a mystery to solve, humor to tickle your funny bone, enough sweet romance to make you sigh, and a surprise ending that will leave you satisfied!

As a fan of Southern fiction novels, I was really excited to get the chance to read and review The Devil Has Dimples as a participant in a virtual book tour, and I was left pleasantly satisfied. I absolutely loved the  author's writing style: she provides the reader with a story that has a nice balance of romance and mystery; mouth watering Southern food descriptions, rich descriptions of the setting of the classic small Southern town of Boggy Bayou, intricate descriptions of Maudie's antique store and apartment; and the crazy antics and witty interactions between the characters that provides a lot of laughs. I have only one suggestion to the author, if you're going to tease your readers with tantalizing food descriptions, provide recipes!

Contemporary romance, chick lit and Southern fiction fans, if you're looking for a sassy, fun and entertaining story, then The Devil Has Dimples is a must read, you won't be disappointed!
