    Is it a bad sign when you want to slap one of the main characters for most of the book That is how I felt with Karen I do think that she had justification for some of her worries, but she beat them to death It was the same issue over and over with her and Elliot getting into a fight I understood Elliot s reasoning for not telling her about the gym, part of me agreed with him, part of me agreed with Karen But once things came out Karen needed to decide if she was behind Elliot or not She w Is it a bad sign when you want to slap one of the main characters for most of the book That is how I felt with Karen I do think that she had justification for some of her worries, but she beat them to death It was the same issue over and over with her and Elliot getting into a fight I understood Elliot s reasoning for not telling her about the gym, part of me agreed with him, part of me agreed with Karen But once things came out Karen needed to decide if she was behind Elliot or not She would say that she was, then 5 minutes later be mad about the same issue.I even sort of understood some of their arguments about not talking things through But they had very different schedules and what Karen would often blow up about seemed silly to me I can see why Elliot would forget to tell her, as they were often passing ships in the dark I quickly grew tired of the drama with the main couple and becameinvested in some of the other story lines I hated what seemed to be happening with Frances, hated how it made her feel and her denial, but loved how she came to peace with it and her actions afterwards The Senior Sweet Magnolia s margarita night had me laughing as well as their Vegas trip.I also got very vested in what was happening to Elliot s sister, Adella I didn t really like her at first, she was a raging bitch, but then after learning what she was dealing with I got why I like where she was by the end of the book and hope that Helen takes care of her

    I have to start by saying I LOVE Sherryl Woods and especially the Sweet Magnolia series I have befriended Maddie, Dana Sue and Helen and the associated hangers on to all of these characters Well, all except for Karen in Midnight Promises.I didn t especially like Karen in the past, but as a secondary character, it didn t lower my enjoyment of the book In Midnight Promises, from start to finish Karen came off to me as whiney and a negative ninny I understand about her past affecting her fu I have to start by saying I LOVE Sherryl Woods and especially the Sweet Magnolia series I have befriended Maddie, Dana Sue and Helen and the associated hangers on to all of these characters Well, all except for Karen in Midnight Promises.I didn t especially like Karen in the past, but as a secondary character, it didn t lower my enjoyment of the book In Midnight Promises, from start to finish Karen came off to me as whiney and a negative ninny I understand about her past affecting her future, however, sometimes you just have to get over yourself and move on I really don t think she EVER got this theory Elliott was a wonderful husband to her, I do not believe he came off as Macho like she kept referring to the males in his family in the book definitely NOT like Ernesto and he was symathetic to her neurosis and needs WHY did she not want Elliott to adopt her kids Why was she upset when Elliott enrolled Mack in football Why is she so freaking neurotic about Frances I gave this book 2 stars becuase I loved the Frances, Flo and Liz characters, and the premise of opening an all male gym was intriguing And I liked that I got to revisit some of my past faves in Travis and Sarah and even Carter and Roxanne is that her name And I really look forward to hearingabout Adelia and her story I won t stop reading the Sweet Magnolias series, unless we hear too much from Karen in the future

    The main character, Karen, was completely unlikable She whined throughout the entire book I kept hoping Eliott would leave her He couldn t do anything right and she was constantly upset with him She wasn t a very good friend When one of the other characters shared some news with her and said that she was looking forward to sharing it with everyone, Karen blabbed it anyway I have enjoyed all the other Sweet Magnolia books but this one was a chore to read.

    My Review I probably never would have picked up this book on my own because I haven t read the other 7 books in this series and this particular book is about a couple who are already married That would have been a mistake because this was a completely enjoyable book to read Even though I haven t read any of the other books in the series, I never felt lost This is a completely stand alone novel and is great by itself More than a romance novel although there is definitely romance to it this My Review I probably never would have picked up this book on my own because I haven t read the other 7 books in this series and this particular book is about a couple who are already married That would have been a mistake because this was a completely enjoyable book to read Even though I haven t read any of the other books in the series, I never felt lost This is a completely stand alone novel and is great by itself More than a romance novel although there is definitely romance to it this is a book about a small town and what it takes to make relationships all types work.Elliott and Karen have been married for two years I need to look back and see if their s was one of the earlier books I have a feeling it is because it doesn t sound like their courtship was an easy one They ve been married long enough that they are having to make truly hard life decisions and are not sure how to handle the different ways that they each approach them Elliott s immediate response is as a take charge alpha type and protect Karen from everything i.e not tell her until he has it all figured out and settles as to how things are going to work But Karen s first marriage was filled with secrets and lies and she can t handle that from Elliotteven when what he has to say is going to send her into a panic Karen has a phobia about money Her first husband left her with a pile of debt that she knew nothing about until after the divorce And now Elliott wants to invest in a new gym in town with a group of other men, also putting up capital As a physical trainer, the gym would be Elliott s baby and it s most definitely his dream, but it s going to require all their savings, plus going into some major debt I really liked them as a couple They are most definitely having troubles communicating, but there s no doubteverthat they completely adore each other and want their marriage to work They re just dealing with real pressures of learning how to become a true partner to another person In the midst of all that is this great community town called Serenity There are a core group of women called the Sweet Magnolias who get together for girls nights and drink margaritas my kinds of women It s most of their men who are building the new gym in town I really liked the variety of characters and that s before we get to the Senior Magnolias who were simply a hoot There are a LOT of side characters in this, but amazingly, I really never got lost in who was who and the main way that they all related within the town It was definitely just a great book for those of you who enjoy the small town romances.I received a complementary copy of this book in return for an honest review

    I m usually a fan of Sherryl s books, but this one did not work for me at all Elliot and his family were interesting characters, but I thought Karen was a self centered spineless twit I got so sick of her using her first marriage as the reason for not having any faith or trust in Elliot If I had to use one word to describe this book, it would be boring Hope the next one is better.

    I love her books and the series but this one the main character was repetitive and too whiny in the book.

    I love this Sweet Magnolia series I forget how much till the next book comes along and then I can t put it down till I have finished it and then i am sad that I am done.This is the story of Karen and Elliot and how no matter how much you love each other you must work at marriage Karen came into this marriage with 2 children and although their real dad is not in the picture Karen is afraid to let Elliot adopt them Then there is Elliott and the other men who want to open a men s gym and Ell I love this Sweet Magnolia series I forget how much till the next book comes along and then I can t put it down till I have finished it and then i am sad that I am done.This is the story of Karen and Elliot and how no matter how much you love each other you must work at marriage Karen came into this marriage with 2 children and although their real dad is not in the picture Karen is afraid to let Elliot adopt them Then there is Elliott and the other men who want to open a men s gym and Elliott being the man keeps things from Karen But the best part is catching up with everyone from the last 7 books Although I think Sherryl did us an injustice by not doing a mini book about the Vegas trip and just kind of throwing it in at the end Very excited to hear we havebooks coming
