Publisher Comments:

New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Sherryl Woods draws you into the emotional journey of a marriage worth saving 

When Elliott Cruz first courted struggling single mom Karen Ames, 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 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?

Review:

"Sweet Magnolia fans won't need a review, but those who don't know Woods's work shouldn't start here; this sequel to 2007's Feels Like Family depends on history for its emotional draw. Karen Ames, divorced with two kids, was won over to the idea of remarrying by Elliott Cruz's sincerity and attentiveness. With a couple years of wedded bliss under their belts and the hope of adding to their family, things are good — mostly. Then Karen discovers that Elliott has committed their joint savings — their baby savings — to opening a new gym in a small town that already has two. Realistically, Woods portrays how fundamental differences between a couple flare in day-to-day interaction, then retreat to smolder until the next time. It's a marriage story, not a romance, and there's a lot of similarly bittersweet change going on among the cast of thousands in Serenity, S.C. This one, more than most, is a story for the fans.
