Best Book
The Truth About Roxy, by Jenny Gilliam ☆☆☆☆☆
Contemporary, spicy

Roxy Palmer is a walking, breathing clichĂ©. And darned tired of it. Working as the assistant librarian in her small, Southern home town, Roxy also anonymously pens the local love column, ASK PAULA ROCKWELL--Thorton, Georgia's answer to Dear Abby. But when the door leading to Roxy's lifetime dream is slammed in her face by one of the good ol' boys, Roxy brings out the big guns--and turns the genteel town upside down with her racier, feminist, home-wrecking new format. Paula Rockwell is making Sheriff Noah Kennedy's life crazy. More…
