Helen Decatur spent a lifetime setting goals–getting through college and law school, opening her own practice, becoming financially secure, and establishing herself as one of the most highly respected divorce attorneys in the state of South Carolina. Achieving those goals was a breeze compared to the one she’s faced with now.
The most driven–and cynical–of the Sweet Magnolias, Helen is forty-two, single and suddenly ready for the family she’s put on the back burner for all these years. Unfortunately, having a child at her age comes with lots of complications, not the least of which is the absence of a serious relationship in her life.
Handling so many divorces has left her skeptical about love, but Helen’s not the type of woman to wait around for fate to step in. Taking charge of her own destiny puts her at odds with her two best friends and sets sparks flying with a man who claims he doesn’t want a family, and nothing turns out like she planned.
I wanted to finish this book before season 2 of the Netflix Series was released. But I got sidetracked and ended up binge-watching it the week it was released. The storylines are not identical.
However, I do enjoy the TV series and the books in equal measure.
I have not read the books in order, which can be a bit confusing with the complexity of the characters.
I look forward to Season 3 and whatever book I read next.
I received this book FREE from the author, publisher, distributor, or other source. My only obligation is to provide a fair and honest review.
