Of course just because you think one book by an author is great doesn’t mean you will like all that authors books but most of the time I do.
I’m glad I was right this time. This book is easy to read and didn’t take me long either. I got into it immediately. I really love how Sherryl Woods makes you care about the characters and want to know what happens to them.
This story is about marriage basically. And how you have to work at understanding each other and make compromises.
Both of the main characters learn a lot about themselves in this story. Elliot learns that he is lots more like his father than he thought he was, but that there are some major differences too. Karen learns she is a lot stronger than she thought and that she needs to slow down and not jump to conclusions. Both of them learn that they need to communicate more.
Anyone who likes clean romance will probably like this book.
From the Back Cover :
When Elliott Cruz first courted struggling single mom Karen Ames, it was a romance worthy of any Sweet Magnolia fantasy. The sexy personal trainer made it his mission to restore Karen’s strength—physical and emotional—and to charm her children.
Now, a few years into the marriage, colliding dreams threaten to tear them apart. Elliott’s desire to finance the business opportunity of a lifetime with their hard-earned “baby money” stirs Karen’s deep-rooted financial insecurities. It’s the discovery that their brother-in-law is cheating on Elliott’s sister—and thinks it’s justified—that puts their irreconcilable differences into perspective. Will their own loving fidelity be a bond so strong they can triumph against all odds?
About the Author :
With her roots firmly planted in the South, Sherryl Woods has written many of her more than 100 books in that distinctive setting, whether in her home state of Virginia, her adopted state, Florida, or her much-adored South Carolina. She’s also especially partial to small towns wherever they may be. In her latest series, Sherryl returns to the fictional town of Serenity, South Carolina, and her beloved Sweet Magnolias. “Writing these books was like catching upl with old friends. I hope readers will feel the same way,” she says.
A member of Novelists Inc. and Sisters in Crime, Sherryl divides her time between her childhood summer home overlooking the Potomac River in Colonial Beach, Virginia, and her oceanfront home with its lighthouse view, in Key Biscayne, Florida. “Wherever I am, if there’s no water in sight, I get a little antsy,” she says.
