Where Azaleas Bloom was a really good read. It was easy and relaxing. It is also a feel good read. It is one of those books that make you feel good. I guess it is because even with all the problems the characters have love wins out.
I love the setting for these Sweet Magnolia books too. The setting is a fairly small town in South Carolina with the lovely name of Serenity. It reminds me a bit of the small town where I grew up.
I also really like the group of women called the Sweet Magnolias. They are great examples of friends helping each other and they have fun too. I wouldn’t mind going to one of their Margarita nights.
This is a really good clean romance suitable for just about anyone. A great book to curl up in a recliner with.
From the back cover:
Single mom Lynn Morrow is determined to put food on the table for her son and daughter. Her soon-to-be-ex-husband has failed to meet his obligations time and again—but it turns out that Ed is struggling with his own demons.
Enter contractor Mitch Franklin, an unlikely knight in shining armor. A widower with two grieving sons, Mitch once admired Lynn from afar. Now he sees in her not only the sweet girl who got away, but a woman desperately in need of support. While rushing to the rescue of Lynn and her children comes naturally, he’s also wise enough to encourage Lynn to find her own way…hopefully straight into his arms.
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.
