Welcome to Serenity: Sweet Magnolias, Book 4 is by Sherryl Woods. This book is about the lovely town of Serenity, South Carolina. The magnolias are a group of women who are best friends and cover any event in their friends’ lives.
Jeanette works for The Corner Spa which is owned by Maddie, Dana Sue, and Helen. She set up and works the facial section of the salon and is very well liked by her clients. She has not dated for several years since she broke up with her boyfriend. He wanted to control her life and work but she was determined to go her own way. Now, Maddie wants her to work on the Christmas Festival committee for the town. Jeanette has valid reasons for not liking Christmas but has never told anyone here is Serenity why. Now she is working for the Christmas festival just to stop the pushing from her colleagues.
Tom McDonald has come to Serenity to be the town manager. The first thing he is hit with in September is the Christmas festival. After having Christmas forced on him as a child, he disliked the season and feels he has other things that need his attention. The mayor feels differently and forces him to be in charge of the festival.
Tom and Jeanette join forces to stop the Magnolias from matchmaking, only to make things worse. Can things get even worse? Tom’s Mother comes to town. Watch the fur fly.
This is a cute book and it is fun to read how they get out of the mess they help make.
