"Dixie Belle" by Debby Mayne

About this book:

  “Can a story that begins with deception ever end well?
Cissy Hillwood needs to leave her Alabama hometown to escape her abusive boyfriend, so she accepts an offer to work for her Uncle Forest in New York City. Sparks fly when she meets Forest’s fiercest competitor, Tom Jenkins, but her uncle does not approve of their budding romance.
  Tom is a Christian at night and on weekends, but he seems to leave his faith at the door when he gets to work. Yet the more time he spends with Cissy, the more he begins to question and reevaluate his business ethics.
  As Cissy tries to keep her relationship with Tim a secret from her Uncle Forest, misunderstanding mount and conflicts arise, forcing Cissy to make a decision. What should she choose: loyalty to her uncle or love for Tom?”

My personal Rating- 
(and a half)

I’m gonna be honest…I didn’t like Cissy or Tom much…Charlene was my favorite character! She was very funny with good advice. I’m now very excited for book #2, “Trouble in Paradise” (coming 2015).
I thought this was a sweet Romeo-Juliet story. :)  
{Is it just me or just the girl on the cover look like Debby Ryan?}
