★★★★★"A beautiful story of brokenness, forgiveness, and second chances."" -- Reviewer
If my mother thought that restoring the run down family inn would break me, she was wrong.
The hardest part of falling in love with the small town of Magnolia and my grumpy handyman is knowing at some point, I'm going to have to sell the inn and leave.


My ex-husband left me for my best friend. I'm 36, unemployed, and about to be evicted. My only option is to ask my estranged mother for help. She offers me a deal: fix up the run down family inn on the small island of Magnolia and any of the proceeds I can make off the sale, will be mine to invest.

Determined to start believing in myself, I roll into town with an unhealthy amount of optimism. The only person who is going to stop me, is me. That is, until I meet my grumpy handyman. He has more walls built up around his heart than the three story inn I'm restoring, but I'm determined to break them down. Even if he's determined to stop me.


I meant to leave Magnolia at some point in my life. With a full ride scholarship to Juilliard, my dream was to dance. But Dad got sick and I needed to stay to run the local hardware store. Plus, there's no way I can rely on my older brother, Archer, who can't outrun the ghosts of his past.

When Maggie blows into town, I can't help but feel inspired by her desire to reinvent herself and when she asks for the local handyman, it becomes the perfect opportunity to provide Archer with purpose and perhaps, a little bit of sunshine.

As our friendship grows, I realize just how much I needed a sisterhood. And when I catch Archer smiling, I realize that he needed Maggie as well. I just hope that when the time comes to sell the inn, Maggie fights to stay, because I'm not sure we could handle the heartbreak if she leaves.

The Magnolia Inn will capture you from page one. It is a story chock full of friendship, laughter, and swoon-worthy romance.

    Had my attention from the moment I started reading it.
  • Immature voice

    Unclear if the main character echoes the author’s point of view, but appeared very immature, with little insight. Think both could benefit from some therapy:(.

    This was such a great book. The relationships that it involved were so interesting and real. I cam' wait to start Book 2 and continue thru the entire series. She has become a new favorite author that I will continue to read all of her books. Hope you will join me in the interesting and loving people in Magnolia.
