New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Karen Hawkins pens a delightfully sexy tale of modern love in a small Southern town. Do Blondes Have More Fun? Newly divorced Roxie Treymayne is dying to find out. After years of being the perfect Southern lady, all she ended up with was a cheating husband. So she goes bombshell blond, gets a provocatively placed tattoo, and prepares to live it up as a Bad Girl. But then her mother falls ill...and Roxie is forced to return to Glory, North Carolina. He'd Love to Know. Once the town bad boy, Nick Sheppard is now Glory's highly respected sheriff. When the hot blonde he stops for speeding turns out to be formerly prim Homecoming Queen Roxanne Treymayne, Nick doesn't quite know where to look -- though he'd like a much closer one at the tattoo peeking from her shorts. But It Takes Two to Tango. Roxie and Nick had a steamy fling in high school, but a love affair between a Southern princess and a boy from the wrong side of the tracks was doomed from the start. Now they have a second chance. Can they get it right? Or will they just end up...the talk of the town?

But before she went to Paris, like she planned, her brother, Mark, came to tell her that their mother had heart attack. So, Roxie came ...
Started out with a promising, albeit unoriginal premise, but then developed into something resembling an episode of "Murder, She Wrote."
A light fluff romance set in a small town with quirky characters. Some parts were cute, while others caused a bit of eye-rolling. I skimmed through the last half as the town crazy people try to solve an old mystery. I liked the hero well enough, and eventually warmed up to the heroine, but this book...
