A man on a mission....
Mackenzie Coalson was determined to rebuild his hometown after a devastating flood left it in ruins. He has no time for a relationship and all the romantic junk that goes with it. He has a vandal to catch and no sweet smelling bundle of femininity is going to sway him.

A woman protecting her family.....
Dixie Harris charged into the county sheriff's office with a sassy sway and a smart mouth, eager to give the sheriff, and anyone else, a piece of her mind. When she locks horns with the devil himself, in the form of Mac Coalson, she quickly learns he has a temper to rival hers, even if he's the living epitome of her sexual fantasies.

When the two unite to catch a potential murderer, it's in everyone's best interest to keep it, "business only". But that's hard to do when their combined attraction is volatile enough to burn down the town. 

My take on this book:
Maggie Adams provides romance with depth, feeling and plenty of real emotion,in Whistlin' Dixie.

 Mac Coalson is using his construction company to help rebuild his hometown but it seems that someone is out to sabotage his work, so when the local sheriff gives him a call telling me he has caught the vandals well he is ready to wring some necks. Turns out one of the culprits is the brother of the new kindergarten teacher Dixie Harris and boy is she spitting mad because she knows her brother is innocent, but can she convince Mac? 

Dixie Harris is a spitfire of a character who  is quick to anger but also has a wonderful caring side. Mac Coalson is a no nonsense guy and the last thing he is looking for is love. The chemistry between the pair is electric which makes for a page turning read! Just when I thought the pair would get together BAM the author, Maggie Adams, throws in a twist that left me thinking that it could all be over!  The author touches on the insecurities that Dixie and Mac have making the romance seem very real. Their thoughts and feelings literally jump from the pages, which allowed me to feel like I was part of the story instead of just reading it.  Along with a pulse pounding romance there is also the mystery of who could be sabotaging the new construction in town. As the romance escalates so does the vandalism creating a sense of tension that kept me wondering what might happen next. Ms . Adams creates a small town feel and throws in a dose of southern charm which brings the setting to life, not to mention several secondary characters including several of Mac's brothers. Whistlin' Dixie is a romance with substance and emotion.  Easy to like characters, humor, mystery, romantic sizzle, and a satisfying ending makes Whistlin' Dixie a must read for romance lovers! I for one can't wait to read the next book  in the Tempered Steele series!
