I'd listened to this book thinking it was one of those general fiction books that belonged in another section in the library. It's not a southern novel because it's set in New York, but I could relate to the main character because I lived in both the north and the south; the culture shock she experiences is similar to my own culture shock. I think anyone who has tried to follow their dreams in a new place would love this novel. ( )

Loved it! Minty and the crew made this a fast and fun read. Hopefully there is a Southern Charm 2 coming soon. ( )

"The entertaining first novel by socialite Tinsley Mortimer about a Southern Belle thrust into the frenzied world of high society in New York City.Small town girl Minty Davenport always dreamed of skyscrapers and yellow cabs. So upon graduation from college, she bids adieu to Charleston and makes a beeline for the Big Apple.

When she finds her picture in fashion magazines alongside A-list celebrities, Minty realizes that her future is in front of the camera, not behind it. But it's a long way from the deb balls of Charleston to Fashion Week in Lincoln Center, and the gatekeepers to New York society upper echelons aren't easily charmed.At first, Minty's attempts to apply etiquette lessons of a southern belle to big city life fail miserably--to comic effect. But she eventually morphs from the girl who alphabetizes the guest list to a boldface name, while also landing the city's most eligible bachelor. When a fellow "It Girl" starts rumors that threaten to ruin Minty's social standing, Minty is forced to reevaluate her values. Finally, she realizes that only by embracing her southern charm can she rule the city"--… (more)
