Fans of Canterbary’s Walsh Family series will definitely recall Gigi, an important side character in that series. The Magnolia Chronicles: Adventures in Modern Dating is her story, and although it’s not necessary to read any of the Walsh series books to enjoy this standalone, you’re truly missing out on a one-of-a-kind series of fabulous contemporary romances if you haven’t. If you can’t start a binge-read of that series immediately, I’d implore you to find a way to do it anyway, or at the very least, get it on your to-be-read list.
I don’t want to spoil a single thing about this story. So I’m just going to say that it was uproariously and, at times, outrageously funny, and I found myself laughing audibly throughout this book. This author’s fantastic sense of humor is an addictive blend of dry wit, New England grit and sarcasm swirled with a bit of realism, circumstance and/or relatability. The banter alone is worth the price of the book—spot-on, perfectly timed and expertly executed, it didn’t matter who Magnolia was bantering with, it a furiously funny back-and-forth exchange akin to a sporting event.
Canterbary takes readers through the trials and tribulations of Magnolia’s year-long dating immersion experiment with the kind of detail that made me want to put my Kindle down—momentarily, of course—seek out my husband and thank him for marrying me all those years ago. I didn’t actually do this, but a couple dozen times while reading this book, I really wanted to. That’s the thing about this story, it’s so relatable, even to old married folk like me. This book didn’t simply entertain and amuse me, I was engulfed in it for an entire day, taking up all of my time and attention, and I was glad for it. Delicious in every sense of the word, The Magnolia Chronicles captivated me as it played out in my mind like an Oscar-nominated romantic comedy does on the big screen.
I was completely lost in Magnolia’s chronicles. Totally engaged, completely absorbed and all in, I was utterly charmed from cover-to-cover as I tried to restrain myself because I didn’t want to merely devour this book, I wanted the chance to revel in Magnolia’s experiences. Refreshing, clever, heartwarming and sexy, this story made my heart—and my head—happy on every single level. I can’t recommend this book—this author—highly enough. Another outstanding story from the brilliant Kate Canterbary, The Magnolia Chronicles: Adventures in Modern Dating gets five smooches from me!
Being a super fan of the Laydee Writer I knew of the character of Magnolia from the Walsh series and I had read the excerpts on Book+Main, so I thought I knew what to expect when I got to read the full story... [Laydee Writer: hold my beer....]
I thought that I read romance books for a bit of escapism.... my chance to be that girl who gets the hot billionaire/rock start/[insert your favourite fantasy guy here] and I'm down with that... but what Kate has crafted here in the Magnolia Chronicles is a book about ME. I am Magnolia... I am the woman that loves sports... I am the woman who has a mother that butts into her love life... I am the woman who seems to go for the man-child players... you get the picture.... and I am sure that anyone who reads this book will feel exactly the same.
Never have I related so much to a character before and never has a story made me feel like what I have experience in my own life wasn't just me - we've all been there and it was almost cathartic when I finished GiGi's book... I did a mental fist bump with GiGi and was like "Dude!"
As usual, there was the on-point banter and wit that I know I will get in a book by the Laydee Writer. There was also lots of bread crumbs and glimpses of my favourite Walsh characters
This is a standalone, but you're missing out if you haven't read the Walsh series or basically anything written by Kate. The sub-title of this book is Adventures In Modern Dating and Gigi's story is certainly an adventure but it is yet again another refreshing, brilliantly written book by the Laydee Writer and there is no doubt that I will re-read and enjoy this book again as I eagerly wait to see what Kate comes up with next
What i did not like about the book was that it skipped over the part of her choice between the two and how the relationships developed into lasting love. I would have like to have seen from when she discovered who she was in love with and the interaction of her choice with her family. Theres a story there that would have been amazing.
Overall I loved certain parts of this book, but some things fell short for me. I still immensley enjoyed Magnolia’s story, but I need more, please!
