Description
The Sweet Magnolias is now a Netflix Original Series!
From #1
New York Times Bestselling Author Sherryl Woods
When Jeanette Brioche helped launch The Corner Spa in Serenity, South Carolina, she found a whole lot more than professional satisfaction. She discovered the deep and loyal friendships that had been missing from her life. But even the Sweet Magnolias can't mend the terrible rift between Jeanette and her family or persuade her that the holidays are anything more than a season of misery.
Pushed into working on the town's much-loved annual Christmas festival, Jeanette teams up with the sexy new town manager. Tom McDonald may be the only person in Serenity who's less enthused about family and the holidays than she is.
But with tree decorations going up on the town square and a bit of romance in the air, Jeanette and Tom take a fresh look at the past and a hopeful look into the future. Together they discover that this just may be a season of miracles after all.

        October 15, 2008
        There is no way beauty expert Jeanette Brioche is going to let her happily married friends meddle in her nonexistent love life; she's single and content to stay that wayeven when they try to set her up with gorgeous, newly arrived city manager Tom McDonald. Attracted to the spunky Jeanette and intrigued by her obvious resistance, Tom is determined to win her over, and, ironically, the town's Christmas festival committee gives him just the opportunity he needs. A pair of protagonists who want nothing to do with Christmas, a delightful assortment of townsfolk who do, and a bevy of helpful friends and difficult relatives result in a lively, upbeat story that sparkles with holiday fun and tugs at the heartstrings. Enjoyable and well written, this is a worthy addition to Woods's "Sweet Magnolias" series. Woods ("Seaview Inn") is noted for appealing character-driven stories that are often infused with the flavor and fragrance of the South. She lives in Colonial Beach, VA, and Key Biscayne, FL.

        Jeanette and Tom are opposites in some ways, but alike in many more, including an intense avoidance of Christmas and all itspageantry. But Tom, the new town manager, and Jeanette, spa services manager for one of its major attractions, are both chivvied into cooperating on Serenitys committee to plan the annual Christmas festival, and their initial sexual attraction rapidly deepens into a more meaningful relationship. Woods updates her readers on the continuing antics of the Sweet Magnolias (Stealing Home, 2007;A Slice of Heaven, 2007;Feels Like Family, 2007) in her holiday-themed, heartwarming contemporary romance, paving the way for even more stories set in this charming South Carolina town only a short drive from Charleston.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2008, American Library Association.)
