The Truth about Roxy, by Jenny Gilliam ☆☆☆☆☆
Contemporary, spicy

Roxy Palmer is a walking, breathing cliché. 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. More…

The Truth About Roxy by Jenny Gilliam was quite a surprise to me. I have never read anything by Ms. Gilliam before and was delighted to find myself wrapped up in Roxy’s world….I would highly recommend this read. It was funny, light, and romantic.” – Kim N., Manic Readers …full review
