In Serenity, South Carolina, she muses that perhaps it is seeing the happiness of her two best friends (see STEALING HOME and A SLICE OF HEAVEN) but divorce attorney Helen Decatur suddenly feels alone. Her work always was enough, but now at forty two years old that reaction formation no longer works as even her biological clock has abruptly set off alarms. She decides to have a child, but has no one in her life to sire the infant. --- If she was to choose, Helen would want pastry chef Erik Whitney as the father of her offspring. The attraction between them is palpable as her buddies can sense it as well but he seems to ignore hisr feelings. She begins a scheme to seduce the chef, but when she falls in love she realizes she wants to raise a family with him Erik has personal reasons from his past to reject the love she offers him. --- The final Sweet Magnolias tale is an enjoyable contemporary romance as the readers will enjoy the often amusing witty repartee between Helen and Erik, who both have serious issues that surface as their relationship simmers before boiling. The story line is entertaining due to the antics of the lead couple encouraged by her best friends and their beloved men returning from the previous novels. Readers will agree that ┬┐Serenity will never be the same┬┐ after this charming trilogy. --- Harriet Klausner

FEELS LIKE FAMILY is book III of a trilogy. As a reader I want to care about the main character - but could not in this book!! Book One, STEALING HOME was a book I 'couldn't put down!' It was fantastic. Book Two, A SLICE OF HEAVEN was a good read, very adequately continuing the story line. Book Three was not. The story is about a milddle aged, unmarried female attorney, Helen.. The book's 393 pages consisted of the character's dilemma whether to have a child. Should she? Was she too old?? This story line tirelessly continued for over 300 pages!! Fortunately, there is a 'happy ending' but ...... I look forward to reading Ms. Woods future books - I know they will be very readable novels!!

    AMAZING - A Must READ!!!

    I have truely enjoyed this series. The way Sherrrl writes give you enough detail but not to much. Leave a space for your imagination. The women in this story are amazing. You want want to put it down.

    Predictable

    While I like Sherryl Woods usually, this series has become very predictable with each of the ladies eventually getting married and having the perfect like - or at least as perfect as anyone's can be.

    I was hoping this would break the mold a little, but it's the typical girl meets guy, girl doesn't like guy, girl and guy disagree but eventually end up together. That's what has happened in all the books in this series and it will be the last one I purchase.
