THE MAGNOLIA INN by Carolyn Brown is a WONDERFUL story told by an AMAZING storyteller. The characters become good friends you are happy to sit down to supper with on Sunday evening. I was moved by the emotion of the story and the small town charm. Carolyn Brown thank you for this gift!

Dream home or Nightmare?
A quaint Victorian home seems like a dream to Jolene and the start to a new life for her after some toxicity in her life with her mother.
Tucker the carpenter at her aunt's B&B is not quite the happy camper.
He's acquired part of her dream and won't let go of it.
Tucker is bitter after his wife's passing and seems to take it out on the first person he encounters in his inner circle.
Restoring the inn and rebuilding Tucker's heart may be two jobs she takes on blindly.
I simply couldn't get into this but perhaps you'll feel differently.
Thank you to Carolyn, the publisher, NetGalley, and Aldiko for this ARC in exchange for this honest review.

Although I like a good romance book, this one didn't make me fall in love with it. In the first few chapters, I didn't like Tucker. I was so frustrated with the storyline that I kept screaming at the book...err.. my e-reader. Ignoring that, I found the setting of the story beautiful. I loved the way Tucker and Jolene finally got together. 

Overall, it is a good romance book, and I think that many romance readers will love it. Magnolia Brown is my first Carolyn Brown read, and I was impressed by her writing. 

Thanks to NetGalley and Montlake Romance for providing me with an eARC!
