Susan Schild welcomes you back to the offbeat Southern town of Willow Hill, North Carolina, for a humorous, heartwarming story of new beginnings, do-overs, and self-discovery… 

When it comes to marriage, third time’s the charm for Linny Taylor. She’s thrilled to be on her honeymoon with Jack Avery, Willow Hill’s handsome veterinarian. But just like the hair-raising white water rafting trip Jack persuades her to take, newlywed life has plenty of dips and bumps.

Jack’s twelve-year-old son is resisting all Linny’s efforts to be the perfect stepmother, while her own mother, Dottie, begs her to tag along on the first week of a free-wheeling RV adventure. Who knew women “of a certain age” could drum up so much trouble? No sooner is Linny sighing with relief at being back home than she’s helping her frazzled sister with a new baby…and dealing with an unexpected legacy from her late ex. Life is fuller—and richer—than she ever imagined, but if there’s one thing Linny’s learned by now, it’s that there’s always room for another sweet surprise…

This charming and well observed novel about finding the courage to love after loss will make you smile as well as cry more than a few happy tears.  Be prepared for a story of true tenderness, humor, and sometimes nail biting tension. Sweet Southern Hearts delivers all this and more.” --Holly Chamberlin, author of Summer with my Sisters




                                            MY REVIEW

Sweet Southern Hearts is the third and final book in the Willow Hill series! Linny Taylor has had bad luck with men until marriage number 3 with Jack Avery but having a new step-son and family issues with her mother and sister is making newlywed life just a little bit harder to contend with. With Linny and Jack on their honeymoon, a call will bring them back home unexpectedly due to Jack's son not wanting to be around his mother or step-dad with all their fighting. 

While dealing with a new step-son who is resisting changes, a week long RV trip that Linny's mother, Dottie begs her to join will bring more trouble than what Linny was asking for. As she gets back home, nothing goes right but a unexpected surprise will bring everyone together in ways they never imagined in a bitter-sweet ending for Linny!

I have to admit that I had to start and stop this book about two times before I could fully get into the story-line but once you get into it, you will love what the story is about and it will make you want to go back and read the other two books in this series. I was a bit confused when someone else was mentioned in the story and I think if I was to read the other two books, it will make sense on what had happened to make this book possible. Overall, it was a good book with the most perfect ending to any story like this that so makes you wish that a movie based on these books was coming soon just to see it played out on the big screen!!

Thank You to Susan Schild for making me a fan of yours with this one book!!
