Home in Carolina by Sherryl Woods, a review

From the authors website
There’s no place like home, especially if it’s Serenity, South Carolina. For Annie Sullivan, though, the homecoming is bittersweet. She’d always envisioned a life there with her childhood best friend, Tyler Townsend. But Ty’s betrayal has cost her the family and the future they’d once planned.

For Ty, losing Annie was heartbreaking. Still, he can’t imagine life without the three-year-old son whose mother left him for Ty to raise. Ty wants it all — Annie, his child and the future he’d dreamed about — and he’s back home in Serenity to fight for it. But getting Annie to forgive and forget may be the hardest challenge he’s ever faced. With the stakes so high, this is one game he can’t afford to lose.

I absolutely loved this book, it reminded me alot of Debbie Macombers style of writing just set on a different coast. This small town atmosphere is just the kind of thing I love and I could envision this town perfectly, thanks to Sherryl's descriptive writing!

Even with the issues Ty & Annie face, from residing in a small town and everyone knowing your business, to the betrayal that she's reminded with everytime she sees his little boy, Annie has a hard time staying away from her childhood friend. And from worrying about issues she suffered from in the past, Ty worries about her life if he spends too much time with her.

Grab a glass of sweat tea and come see what happens in this quaint town of Serenity, where the Sweet Magnolias live, and be prepared to want to read the next two titles which are released in May & June!
