Fly Girl’s Review:

This novella took me by surprise. I’m not used to seeing Samantha write about older couples. I don’t mean old ladies in Red Hats, but it’s not new adult. These two are in their 40’s and the story is a sweet heart-wrenching, swoon-worthy romance about two people who’ve already had one failed marriage under their belts and are trying to figure out if they can make another marriage work.

Twins, Sam and Mallory’s mom, Susannah has worked for the last year on the house her Grandfather left her to make it into a great Southern bed and breakfast, despite her cousin Georgia’s negativity. That negativity along with her ex-husbands treatment of her during their marriage break-up contributes to her lack of confidence to marry again. Colton on the other hand is ready to have a woman in his life and bed full time with a ring on it!! You go man, cause there are too many men out there that want to have their cake and eat it too.

Susannah leads him on a merry chase through TWO proposals, the Holidays, and her insecurities before she finally says yes. As usual the characters have all the truth and emotion to make them feel like real life people having experiences the rest of us have in smaller doses. When you get done with this one, be sure to reflect back on your own relationship and think of the small things he or she did once for you that made a moment special, maybe a birthday or anniversary…those keep us going. If we didn’t have hope they would happen again, we probably wouldn’t work so hard.

For me this is a 4 of 5, we got our HEA, with no cliffhanger. For me there was just a little bit of sparkle missing from the story. I would like to have seen Susannah make a grand gesture to Colton and I think that would have been better. In the end I did love it though. Can’t wait to see what the next Magnolia Sound novel And then One Day has in store for us.
