Dixie’s found her way back home again, and this time she wants to stay.
All it took was four days. Less than a week, and my emotional cocktail of love and concern was stirred up again—for Deke, and my hometown. The big career I’d built was no substitute for the quiet life I left behind. Deke loved me, supported me, wanted only the best for me. Kissing Creek raised me, knew me, and when it was time, let me go. Now the idea of returning to my hometown fills me with joy and hope. And Deke? His warm touch and caring heart might be the biggest incentive of all.
Deke’s life is in Kissing Creek. And there’s plenty of room for Dixie.
Yeah, okay, I have a pretty good life here in Kissing Creek. But I’d pack it all up and chase Dixie out west for a chance to live out my dreams with her. She always has kept me on my toes, though, especially when it comes to her actions. So why am I surprised when she shows up again, and with a plan? I’m not crazy about it but I’ll play along. She wants to build a life of her own here. I can help. She wants to date? We’ll date. But beware, Dixie, I have plans too.
Author’s Note: Kick back and enjoy this sweet and sexy small-town romantic comedy set in Kissing Creek, Tennessee—Book Three of the Heart of Dixie trilogy featuring Dixie and Deke. This book was originally released a few years ago, set in the fictional small town of Moreover, Tennessee. You may have read it. If so, you probably loved it *grins* But sometimes, even authors need a do-over. Because I was so in love with these characters and their history together, I decided to introduce the setting’s name change in a prequel novella of their origin story and, well, oops! Got a little carried away while writing. Then I decided I wanted a bonus epilogue for y’all—and what do you know? Uh oh. Same thing happened. Now we have three books to binge. Heads up, you hopeless romantics, you’ll find Deke and Dixie shenanigans in later books in this series, but Something to Talk About (Book Three) is the last book of their story—for now at least.

3.5 Heart Review by Ashley
FINALLY! What I've been waiting for since Dixie and Deke's saga began...as kids. Thank goodness this picks up shortly where the last book finished up because my heart was mush as these two tried to get on the same page.
If there's one thing I've learned about Dixie, its that when she wants something she goes for it and goes for it big. When she made up her mind, there was no holding back. Cue the grand gestures and hilarity.
While I did find that things jumped around a bit I didn't mind too much. It went to both Deke and Dixie's state of mind as they tried to figure out what now.
Filled with the kind of ridiculous that can only be found in a small-town, friendships, family and forgiveness, Something to Talk About left me with a satisfied smile on my face and an itch to return to Kissing Creek.
