Among the Fair Magnolias: Four Southern Love Stories by Tamera Alexander
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Okay so really I’d say it was a 3 and 1/2 star review….

This boom has 4 stories, and I feel I need to rate each one on its own too:)

To Mend a Dream by Tamera Alexander

I loved seeing how Savannah’s story played out..I read and loved To Win Her Favor..I’d give this one 4 stars
It was definitely my favorite

Description
The Civil War cost Savannah Darby everything—her family and her home. When Aidan Bedford, an attorney from Boston, buys the Darby estate, he hires Savannah to redecorate. Can she find a mysterious treasure before her job is finished?

An Outlaw’s Heart by Shelley Gray

Easily my second favorite…but honestly I’d probably give it 3 and a half stars
I did find out it was characters introduced in a series that I plan to eventually read now:)

Description
When Russell Stark returns to Fort Worth, he’s determined to begin a new life. But when he arrives at his mother’s homestead, he discovers that she is very ill and the woman he loved is still as beautiful and sweet as he remembered. With time running out, Russell must come to terms with both his future and his past.

A Heart So True by Dorothy Love

This one just ticked me off…that’s really all I have to day about it…it’d give it a 3 star because it all came together in the end

Description
Abigail knows all too well what is expected of her: to marry her distant cousin Charles and take her place in society. But her heart belongs to another. A terrible incident forces Abby to choose between love and duty.

Love Beyond Limits by Elizabeth Musser

I had a hard time getting through this one…it just didn’t catch my attention, until near the end when it threw me a curve ball I didn’t see coming..
Again it’s one would be a 3….without that curve I might have said 2 stars 🙂

Description
Emily has a secret: She’s in love with one of the freedmen on her family’s plantation. Meanwhile, another man declares his love for her. Emily realizes some things are not as they seem and secrets must be kept in order to keep those she loves safe.

I received this book free from netgalley in exchange for my honest review
