When famous romance novelist Violet Bell returns to her DC alma mater to speak to the senior class about her glamorous life ten years after graduation, the last thing anyone expects to hear is the truth. But after a devastating divorce and way too many missed writing deadlines have left her scrambling for both money and her sanity, not even a healthy dose of Xanax can stop the humiliating meltdown she has on stage.
As soon as her shocking anti-love diatribes go viral, Violet’s once lustrous career writing happily-ever-afters becomes a distant memory. With nowhere else to turn, Violet finds solace at the home of her closest friend from college, Aaron Wright. Practical, preppy, and married to his job on the Hill, Aaron was never the guy for the ultra-scandalous Violet. But a whirlwind weekend together in the Nation’s Capital could have her wondering if Mr. Wright hasn’t been right underneath her nose all along…

I didn't just love Confessions of a City Girl: Washington D.C., it went beyond that. It is my favourite story in the series. You can read all parts in the series as a standalone, no need to read them in order by the way. Juliette writes such beautiful books, books about reality and normal issues, but she writes them in such a special way! The stories stay with you for much longer and you can stop thinking about the characters and situations and you ask yourself what would you do if you were in this situation. Just brilliant! I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of emotion and plot jam packed into this novella. I read it in one sitting and couldn't put it down. I admired that Juliette has put another personal touch this novella. She admitted that she used parts of her personal life in this story which has had a lot of up and downs. Even though, the novella gives you all the feels in the end. Highly recommended!
