Item description for Savannah from Savannah (Savannah #1) by Denise Hildreth Jones...
Overview Though first place in a fiction contest guarantees that Savannah Phillip's novel will be published, she soon discovers that her mother--Savannah, Georgia's most charming if diva-like citizen--is behind her literary win. Furious, she resolves to give up her dreams of literary fame and moves home to prove herself to her mother, her city, and herself.
I'm coming home to prove something..to my city, my mother, and myself.
It is a place known to most as Savannah. It is a place known to me as home. I wish I could tell you it was my love for this city that precipitated my return. But I did not return out of a mere longing for home. I returned because I have something to prove to home. I am Savannah...from Savannah.

Reviews - What do customers think about Savannah from Savannah?
Definitely a good book Feb 13, 2007
In spite of the reviews, I really enjoyed this book. Savannah was a good character, and I found that I wanted to hear more about her. I'm looking forward to the next book.
A Great Read Oct 16, 2006
Savannah's plan is to write. Precisely write the novel of the year and becoming a well known author. Instead a few things go slightly awry and instead she finds herself back home in Savannah and facing her first 'real' job as a human interest writer for the town newspaper.
I really enjoyed this book. It had laugh outloud moments along with poignant 'moment of turth' moments. Combined with great dialogue and some very quirky yet believeable characters it is definitely worth your time and money.
Loved it! Jul 14, 2006
The style and wittiness blew me away. I loved how honest she was with the characters and doesn't make them perfect. She makes them easy to relate to. Recommend this highly!
Serious fun with great thought provoking potential Jul 10, 2006
Denise Hildreth scores with this debut novel. As a native of Dixie who now lives in NYC, I can honestly say that the characters and story line all ring true. When I am homesick, I just pull out this literary romp and I laugh so hard and am so engaged that I expect to see Savannah & her crew come careening down the street on their bikes.
At the same time that I'm laughing, it's not just the humor that engages me. It's the real life issues like identity search, jealousy, hurt and healing, and PARENTS that keep me glued to the page. Denise has a gift for drawing you in with humor and keeping you close with depth of insight and ability to connect with her readers.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good read.
Way to go Mrs. Hildreth! Jun 24, 2006
Mrs.Hildreth did an excellent job on her first novel. Savannah from Savannah captured me from the beginning and held me to the end. I especially enjoyed the way she included names and places familar to us. I have been a huge fan of Jonathan Pierce's for years so I was thrilled each time his name came up. I have never been to Savannah, GA so I learned a lot about the city. Southern women on the other hand, I do know about and this book captures the truth about us... we can be fisty....If only I had a little bit of their grace. The previous reviewer mentioned not reading the end of the book, yet predicted how it ended. How can that be if they didn't finish the book? Read it to the end and you will be glad you did. Then grab Savannah Comes Undone for some more fun with Savannah from Savannah. You will be surprised what other things you learn about yourself on the journey. She and "Vicky" are true southern ladies:-)
