Overview

Midnight Promises by Sherryl Woods



When Elliott Cruz first courted struggling single mom Karen Ames, it it was a romance worthy of any Sweet Magnolia fantasy. The sexy personal trainer made it his mission to restore Karen's strength—physical and emotional—and to charm her children.

Now, a few years into the marriage, colliding dreams threaten to tear a few years into the marriage, colliding dreams threaten to tear them them apart. Elliott's desire to finance the business opportunity of a lifetime with their hard-earned "baby money" stirs Karen's deep-rooted financial insecurities. It's the discovery that their brother-in-law is cheating on Elliott's sister—and thinks it's justified—that puts their irreconcilable differences into perspective. Will their own loving fidelity be a bond so strong they can triumph against all odds?

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 Elliott...even 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 doubt...ever...that 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.

Midnight Promises by Sherryl Woods SubTitle: A Sweet Magnolia Novel ISBN: 9780778313489 Once again we find ourselves back in Serenity. This book concentrates on Karen and her marriage to Elliot. She still works in the kitchen of Sullivan's restaurant and he works at the corner spa helping where needed. He's neglected to tell Karen, his wife about the funding he's going to get to start a man's gym in town with backing from the woman's spa. Her ex mother in law, Frances is going through forgetfullness/Alzheimers and her friends are concerned. There are other problems with the finances with others in the group also. His sister is also going through marital problems. Others come to her aid in hopes they can fix them. What a concept. the trip of a lifetime! The Letting go of the past, forgiveness and moving on with your life and that of your family... Love how the title of the book says it all.

I have read all of the Sweet Magnolia series and have enjoyed meeting the characters of Serenity and the events of their lives. Although the themes in Macombers books are very relevent this book seemed to move slowly overtly dwelling on the issue of fear of trust regarding financial issues between the main characteers. I will continue reading the series and meeting the citizens there.

Midnight Promises (The Sweet Magnolias #8) picked up with gang at ladies of Serenity. Karen was the main character, a single mother who married Eliot with security she wanted for herself and her two young children. The two are in love; however, Eliot keeps a financial arrangement from Karen, which does not set to well based on her past experience with her ex-husband and threatens to tear them apart. When their brother in law is found cheating on Elliott’s sister, they come together and find a bond to triumph over the differences. As usual the Sweet Magnolias come together to help solve the issue with southern humor.

I couldn't wait to get this, then couldn't put it down! I would love to hear more about the senior Magnolias in future books, too. Well-developed characters throughout the series with real problems. Enjoy!
