"As with every other Allen book I've read, this was a delight from start to finish. It's thoroughly southern and magical. She writes romance so well!

The story was simple, but that didn't bother me. For this author, it's all about the setting and atmosphere and magic - with some great character growth thrown in for good measure. "

The Almost Sisters

Year Published: 2017

"I did not connect with protagonist for a while into the book, so it took me some time to get into it. But once I did I could not be stopped! There is a central conflict/mystery in the book and towards the end I found myself thinking, "These characters and the stories of their relationships growing and changing are so good, I don't really care if the mystery gets resolved." 👏 The romantic scenes had 0% cheese and 100% sweetness, it was the best. I loved watching the protagonist grow in her feelings of motherhood and her vision / calling for her own life. It was inspiring!

The idea of a Second South was a very helpful illustration. It's one I'll have to chew on for a while."

"Just ok. There was some beautiful writing in there, but overall the story just had so little to bring any sense of redemption or satisfaction. I don't mind a sad ending, but this was a blah ending. It felt kind of pointless."
