They have nothing in common—except a need to start over…

The drawback to having a picture-perfect life is that there’s nowhere to go but down—and Annalise Haverford is falling fast. Once, she was the self-proclaimed queen bee of Magnolia, North Carolina. Now her husband has been arrested for fraud, and she’s become an outcast in the shallow circles she used to rule. There’s only one affordable rental in town, and it’s owned by the woman Annalise got fired from a lucrative job.

Much as single mother Shauna Myer would like to refuse Annalise, who treated her like dirt on the bottom of her red-soled shoe, she needs that rent money. But when Shauna’s first love arrives in town, unraveling secrets she’d hoped to keep, Annalise becomes her unlikely defender. Meghan Banks, an elementary school art teacher whose quiet existence suddenly descends into chaos, is thrown an unexpected lifeline by Annalise, too.

As spring ripens into a sultry summer, the three spur each other on to share their fears and dreams, face new challenges, and seize second chances. Because no matter how turbulent life may be, it’s much easier to navigate those choppy waters when you’re buoyed by true friendship…­


A sentimental and sweet small-town romance that shows the true strength of friendship! Each book in The Carolina Girls series has been easy to love and very enjoyable, but there’s just something about this group of ladies who forge a strong bond in the midst of adversity and rally hard for each other that makes this one special. I loved this book wholeheartedly and only wished for a little more resolution in the ending.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone that enjoys a small-town romance with endearing characters, heartfelt relationships and humor along the way.
