"Striking the perfect balance of romance, heat, and drama, this optimistic love story is a sweet start to a promising series, perfect for fans of Debbie Macomber."—Publishers Weekly, STARRED Review on The Magnolia Sisters
"Major’s characters and small-town romance worldbuilding are unique, engaging, and emotionally compelling. Avery and Gray’s romance is complex, but the Magnolia backdrop adds a dimension and texture to the story. A dynamic start to a series with a refreshingly original premise.”—Kirkus Reviews on The Magnolia Sisters --This text refers to the mass_market edition.

Loved both of these characters, both are a little broken but perfect for each other. Loved all of the furry critters, but then I love all animals! A great small town romance with plenty of laughs. This is part of a series but the author ties in the other books perfect.
I came to the series late, having just read The Merriest Magnolia and a couple of the novellas a few weeks ago. I passed The Merriest Magnolia over a few times then decided to give it a go since I love Michelle's writing. I'm so glad i did!
I loved Ryan and Meredith's love story and the animal shelter element made the story so much more heartwarming. And of course the goats added the humor to the story! I highly recommend this entire series.
Meredith Ventner, our heroine in this final book of the series, finally gets her story. Meredith, who is always hard on herself, runs an animal shelter, Furhaven Friends, and has a hard time asking people for help. She has become very close to her two sisters, Avery and Carrie, and together they always find ways to help each other, as well as building up Magnolia to its original glory. Meredith loves all of her rescued animals, as well as the three dogs she has. She knows she needs to fix up the shelter, especially the roof, and has applied for a grant that will allow her to expand.
Ryan Sorenson, our hero, just moved in next door to Meredith’s place, to recover from a leg injury. Ryan is an ER doctor, who was loaned the place by a friend, and spends his time drinking, feeling sorry for himself, and is shocked to hear someone knocking on the door during a rainy windy night. He meets his next-door neighbor, Meredith who is desperate for help, since she knows he is a doctor, and a friend is injured at her place, and will not take ‘no’ for an answer. Ryan reluctantly goes to check out this person, which turns out to be a mild injury.
Ryan checks out the shelter, and offers Meredith help, which she reluctantly accepts, and in a short time he finds himself falling for her. Meredith also is attracted to Ryan, but knows he is leaving in a few weeks, and is determined to not get involved, as well as her lack of self-confidence. Ryan enjoys spending time with the dogs, and especially Rachel, the goat who loves him. 😊 He ends up spending all his friend time working at the shelter, and to help fix the roof and other things, before the people who decide on the grant come to visit.
Avery and Carrie also see the attraction between Ryan and Meredith, but she refuses to acknowledge any feelings she may have. I loved seeing the sisters together, how close they have become over these three books. We also get to see Avery’s wedding.
Both Ryan and Meredith have their own issues; with Ryan having problems with his family and the death of a friend (his injury was due to a gang attack at the hospital, where his friend was killed); Meredith’s issues are her inability to accept that people care about her, and is capable of love. I did love Ryan and Meredith together, as they started to act on their feelings, but Meredith was a pain at times not accepting what was real. There was a point closer to the end that blew up whatever relationship they had, due to issues with the grant, and his family. Will Ryan and Meredith find a way to a happy ever after?
What follows is a wonderful heartwarming story with both Meredith and Ryan, but will they be able to get past their issues? The bond between the sisters was great and they made a great team. The Last Carolina Sister was written so very well by Michelle Major, with a great couple, and so many wonderful characters, including Avery, Carrie, Gray, Dylan and many of the townsfolks. I especially loved the animals, who were so cute and added a sweet element to this story. This is the final book in this series, but I just learned that Michelle Major is starting a new series, taking place in Magnolia, and cannot wait to start that series.
Dr. Ryan Sorensen was shot in the leg when a gang confrontation erupted in his ER in the DC hospital where he worked. The injury was bad enough but what was just as devastating was the death of his friend that night. Ryan's chief of staff at the hospital, Dr. David Parten offered Ryan the use of his vacation cottage in Magnolia, NC while Ryan healed. At first Ryan was going stir-crazy there. But then the crazy woman from next door came and banged on his door insisting he go with her right away to aid an injured person at her rescue farm. She wouldn't take "no" for an answer and practically dragged him out his door and into her truck. What Ryan didn't realize at the time was that this woman, Meredith Ventner was going to change his life. First Ryan found emotional healing helping Meredith with her rescue animals and then more emotional healing when he fell in love with Meredith.
The Last Carolina Sister by Michelle Major is the third book in her Magnolia Sisters series. This is a truly heartwarming story. Both main characters have so much baggage to overcome. Due to their pasts they both have built strong, high walls around their hearts and immersed themselves in suppressed feelings. So a very insecure Meredith and a closed-off and a little bit crusty Ryan find each other, find trust in each other and find love for each other. I liked the emotional growth of these characters in this story. I was heavily invested in them finding their HEA and that's a very important element in my enjoyment of a book. I like Ms. Major's writing style and enjoyed all three books in this series. Fortunately this author isn't done with Magnolia, NC even though this is the last book in the Magnolia Sisters series. We get to visit Magnolia again later this year when Michelle Majors releases the first book in her Carolina Girls series, Wildflower Season.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
