Christmas in the South is all about family, and actress Allison McLemore can voice each eccentric member of the cast with humor, sympathy, and style worthy of an Alabama native.
Albright came to her storytelling skills honestly as a journalism major (at the University of Alabama of course) and through nearly 15 years in talk radio. And perhaps the author learned a little something about interpersonal drama through her long-time role on the soap opera Days of Our Lives.
With her hair perfectly coiffed, nails freshly manicured and a heavy trail of perfume wafting behind her, local news reporter Dallas Dubois is sure she's about to kick her career - and maybe her love life - into high gear. The director of the Tuscaloosa children's Christmas play has fallen ill, and Dallas is ordered by her station manager to take the reins. Everyone is shocked - especially Cal Hollingsworth, who still remembers her as the Ice Queen from high school.
If nothing else, Dallas has never met a challenge that a little lip gloss and a Chanel knockoff couldn't fix. But she has no idea how to relate to these kids, and their brutal honesty is giving her pause. Things are made even more complicated by the butterflies she gets whenever Cal is near. But when long-lost family members reenter her life, Dallas's icy veneer begins to melt. And with Cal by her side, she soon realizes that it's what's under all the hair spray that counts.
Sexy Southern fun…with a hint of magnolia!

Any additional comments?
I like Dallas the most. She is likeable and real. I did not like Vivian from a Wedding Belles and Blake is nasty and stuck up.
