Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Woods chooses a whimsical, sweet scenario for her sixth Sweet Magnolia contemporary romance (after 2010's Home in Carolina). Travis McDonald, a ladies' man and washed-up ballplayer, lights in Serenity, S.C., one day and decides to stay. He buys a radio station and, charmed by the friendly chattiness of Sarah Price, a recently divorced mother of two, lures her to become his morning DJ. Sarah, still fending off her belittling ex, Walter, impulsively agrees. Woods spends some time catching up with the robust cast developed in earlier books, and Sarah and Travis frequently play second fiddle to Walter's self-discovery, unexpected pregnancies, the local real estate market, and other smalltown dramas. For longtime fans, however, the digressions have their own charm, and Woods never fails to come back to the romantic point. (May)

From Booklist

Cupid's arrow hits Travis McDonald square between the eyes the first time he sees single-mom Sarah Price waiting tables in Wharton's, but his reputation as a player seems destined to come between them. Undaunted, he proceeds with his original plan to open a local radio station, and soon convinces Sarah to become the morning host. As the entire town of Serenity watches, entertained by his very public courtship and her on-again, off-again response, Sarah works through the insecurities caused by ex-husband Walter's verbally abusive treatment and her resentment that he and his parents are only interested in her son and not her daughter. When Walter moves to Serenity to become a better father, he becomes another issue between Travis and Sarah. Woods further develops the second-generation Sweet Magnolia friendships between Annie, Sarah, and Raylene while introducing Mary Vaughn's daughter Rory Sue into the equation in the newest heartwarming installment in her contemporary-romance miniseries set in small-town South Carolina. --Lynne Welch

I have loved all the books in the series..however, like so many other writers, I found the same things repeated over and over and over..saying the same things in different ways. ie: how many times do we have to hear how the ex-husband destroyed Sarah's confidence?? How many times do we have to hear that she doesn't trust Travis because of his reputation?? How many times do we have to hear Travis lament that she doesn't trust him?? WE GET IT! WE GET IT! We got it the first time!
Danielle Steel does this to distraction! What a shame!

Sarah Price returns to her hometown after a bitter divorce and takes a job as a waitress. Her uppity ex Walter is disgusted that she would reduce herself to such a lowly position, but she wants to make her own way. She catches the eye of Travis McDonald, cousin to the town manager, who wants to set his own roots in the community. After he buys a radio station with plans to broadcast locally, he has the whole town speculating what his plans are (and the various scenarios are the funniest parts of the book). He woos Sarah from her waitress job and soon has her swooning, but his shady past as a ladies' man keep the ever self-conscious Sarah from taking the leap of faith. It is up to Travis to prove he has changed.

I usually like Sherryl Woods novels, but there was just a few things that annoyed me about this one. The first was Sarah's constant lack of self esteem, combined with her mistrust of Travis' past romantic history. I found myself wishing he would just move on and find someone more worthy of him because she was started to sound like a broken record. There are just too many magnolias - the book was so overpopulated with so many people and sub plots (that frankly were not very interesting), that I found my mind wandering whenever she strayed from the main storyline.

This is the first book by this author that totally annoyed me. It took me forever to get through it. I know Ms. Woods is from the South. But she took the southern charm way to far in this book. I know one man that calls everyone sugar and most women hate him. She uses it in this book untill you just want to scream. Sarah is completly annoying. I understand she has self-confidence issues, however, I dont believe she would have went out with this man at all if they were this severe. She doubts everything that goes on, even things that he does not have any control over. I feel that this book was way overdone in all things. I hope the next one is better. This is a solid disapointment in a series that I grew to love.

Disclaimer: I don't often read romance novels, but I like the idea of a story with a heroine and her romance at the center- and I like a happy ending. So I went in wanting to like this.

The story is a continuation of the Sweet Magnolia series, and Sarah, the heroine, is one of the second generation. When the story opens, she is a single mother recently divorced from her verbally abusive husband Walter and sheltering her friend Raylene after she helped put her physically abusive husband Paul behind bars. Annie, the other leg of their trio, is recently married to Ty, a baseball player.

Sarah's self-esteem is shot after a few years of mistreatement by not only her husband but her family. Even her weight loss, her friends and her job as a waitress in the popular town diner haven't made her see how attractive she is. When mischievous former Red Sox player Travis McDonald comes into her restaurant and begins flirting with her, she isn't flattered but flustered.

Within a few weeks, Travis establishes himself as the owner of the new radio station and hires Sarah to be his morning deejay. The town agrees on two things: Sarah's doing a fabulous job and she and Travis are made for each other. But the headtrip she suffered at Walter's hands continue to undo her, no matter how much Walter himself tries to make amends.

I found some of the scenes repetitive and overly long. Maybe something needs to be repeated twice for it to sink in; by the third time, it's frustrating. I also groaned at some of the expository dialogue.

2.5 stars

6th in the Sweet Magnolia series. (2nd in the 2nd trilogy of the next generation of Sweet Magnolias)

POV: 3rd person: Sarah, Travis, Walter
Sensuality: Warm

Sarah Price returned to Serenity when her marriage fell apart. She brought her two children and all the baggage her ex-husband left her. She has little self-esteem and doesn't think any man would want her.
Travis McDonald came to Serenity to figure out what to do with his life. He was a big-time ball-player just let go by the Red Sox. He was a player not only in baseball, but also with women. Now he is looking to change his life.

This book started out with a lot of promise. Sarah and Travis had good chemistry and each had obstacles to overcome. Somewhere in the middle, it started going round and round in circles. It got really boring for me. I couldn't wait for it to end.

I actually started to dislike most of the Sweet Magnolias. They are an elitist group of women who rarely let a "newbie" into the group. Jeanette is the most open and friendly with everyone, while the originals and Annie are rude and sometimes mean. Annie was a bit of a snot and I really didn't like her in this book.

Honestly, I liked the first 3 books a lot, but really wish I hadn't started reading the 2nd trilogy. The young generation of Sweet Magnolias is just not that interesting.

Overall, the premise of the book is good, but it gets lost somewhere and runs in circles too much. I think I am done with the Sweet Magnolias...too bad because Raylene actually seems like a good character.

More 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 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 Amazing Gracie, as in her later Trinity Harbor series, Woods creates a fictional version of the town where she spends summers on the shores of the Potomac River. "This town just lends itself to fascinating characters and a charming locale," she says.

A member of Novelists Inc., Sisters in Crime and Romance Writers of America, 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.
