Product Overview

Jaxie Parker is a sexy, savvy advertising executive content to savor Atlanta's nightlife in expensive suits, sipping martinis and gossiping with her best friend. She is enjoying life in the fast lane when, all of a sudden, she's put in charge of her firm's annual pro bono project.
Her assignment: to devise a plan for revitalizing the coastal town of Rumton, South Carolina. Years of declining population, lack of industry, and a poor economy threaten to leave Rumton broke and hopeless. But Jaxie doesn't "do" small towns, much less know how to pull off saving one.
She arrives in Rumton to discover that the lack of shopping and day spas is the least of her worries. There isn't even a hotel, and she must bunk down with an old man named Pop in an even older house. Determined to succeed---if only to get back home as quickly as possible---Jaxie sets out to meet the townsfolk and work on a plan.
Just when she decides that Rumton is dreadfully uneventful---and her coworker is painfully boring---things heat up pretty quickly. It turns out that there" is "an interesting man beneath his ever-present suit and tie, after all. And there is much more to Rumton than meets the eye.
A charismatic businessman arrives on the scene offering to buy up land---a development that Jaxie feels is too coincidental. A town resident is murdered, an intriguing history of piracy is uncovered, and a massive storm brews offshore. Although Jaxie is surrounded by danger, she hunkers down to complete the assignment she started, and in the process, she learns a thing or two about life and love. Advance Praise for T. Lynn Ocean and" Sweet Home ""Carolina"""

"Take one sophisticated ad executive, drop her in the middle of a small Southern town, and get ready for surprises galore." Sweet Home Carolina "mixes memorable characters, great humor, small-town Southern culture, history, and mystery for a delightful romp of a read."
---Emyl Jenkins author of" Stealing with Style"
"T. Lynn Ocean's novels give us characters to root for and laugh with. In" Sweet Home Carolina," it's the spunky and intelligent Jaxie Parker who rethinks her career path after pushing a strappy Cole Haan sandal into a pile of horse dung, in the middle of a town that's in the middle of nowhere.... A fun and entertaining read."
---Susan Reinhardt, author of" Not Tonight, Honey, Wait 'Til I'm a Size 6"
