humorous, heartwarming story of
new beginnings, do-overs, and self-discovery…
Schild welcomes you back to the offbeat Southern town of Willow Hill, North
Carolina, for a humorous, heartwarming story of new beginnings, do-overs, and
self-discovery… When it comes to marriage, third time’s the charm for Linny Taylor. She’s
thrilled to be on her honeymoon with Jack Avery, Willow Hill’s handsome
veterinarian. But just like the hair-raising white water rafting trip Jack persuades
her to take, newlywed life has plenty of dips and bumps.Jack’s twelve-year-old son is resisting all Linny’s efforts to be the perfect
stepmother, while her own mother, Dottie, begs her to tag along on the first
week of a free-wheeling RV adventure. Who knew women “of a certain age” could
drum up so much trouble? No sooner is Linny sighing with relief at being back
home than she’s helping her frazzled sister with a new baby…and dealing with an
unexpected legacy from her late ex. Life is fuller—and richer—than she ever
imagined, but if there’s one thing Linny’s learned by now, it’s that there’s
always room for another sweet surprise…
“This charming and well observed novel about finding the courage to love
after loss will make you smile as well as cry more than a few happy
tears. Be prepared for a story of true tenderness, humor, and sometimes
nail biting tension. Sweet Southern Hearts delivers all this
and more.” –Holly Chamberlin, author of Summer with my Sisters
I absolutely love this story. I love how the author developed the characters. When reading this story, I can just see it in my mind. I like to be able to picture the story in my mind while reading.
The story involves Linny who just married Jack and are on their honeymoon. Which didn’t last because they were needed back home. Jack has a 12-year-old son and he was having a crisis. During this book Linny had to learn how to deal with a 12-year-old stepson. She has no children of her own.
Then there is Linny’s Mom, her Mom, she is a very interesting character. Well her and her friends (her friends are also very lively and have lots of character) are going on an RV trip, of course they have never driven an RV so they get Linny to come along ( Linny has never driven an RV). Leaving her husband to deal with his son and X-wife.
I really love how this story read. I wasn’t bored with the story and really enjoyed all the plot twist and different things going on. This story is not just a basic book but a fun, romantic, adventure and a mystery all in one book. I am hoping for a 4th book in this series. I have read the first book and haven’t read the second book yet. You could read this book without reading the first two books but I recommend that you would them all.
I want to thank Tasty Book Tours, the Author Susan Schild and Netgalley for letting me read this fun story.
