A Magnolia Reunion (The Magnolia Sisters) by Michelle Major
What would you do if you were face-to-face with the one who got away?
It’s been years since Jennie Copley left Magnolia, NC—and her dreams of happily-ever-after—in the rearview mirror. But when her beloved nana turns ninety, she forces herself to come home for the birthday party…and runs into Lucas Michaels, the boy who broke her heart all those years ago. She’d hoped to never see him again, but life—and Nana—has other plans…
Lucas is still in love with Jennie—time and distance could never change that. When she left for college, Lucas knew she had big dreams and he didn’t want to stand in her way. Now, forced together to plan Nana’s party, he can’t get her off his mind. Jennie is only in town a little while. Can he convince her to give him one more chance?
Review by Tanya Kaanta for Love Books Group
A Magnolia Reunion is a short and sweet novella set in the small town of Magnolia, North Carolina. For those who are new to Michelle Major, Magnolia is the location of her newest contemporary romance series about three half-sisters who find love. But back to A Magnolia Reunion.
Jennie Copley grew up in Magnolia, and after her heart was broken by her—what she thought was her true love—boyfriend at the time, she skipped town, became a traveling nurse, and helped people across the world. Returning to Magnolia to stay was never an option.
Until she is called back to see her Nana who helped raise her. Her grandmother is turning ninety and Jennie would never dream of missing this momentous occasion.
Only she finds that perhaps her Nana is playing matchmaker. With none other than Lucas Michaels, the boy who shattered her heart. Nana knows these two are perfect for each other, and they both secretly long for one another. Now it’s just getting that out in the open. And so, Nana has them working together to organize her birthday party.
A Magnolia Reunion is a story of second chances, for both the heroine and the hero. And set in a small town, this novella does a great job of piquing my interest and wanting more. Because the novella is very short, as novellas are. But no worries, if you love this little story, you’ll definitely want to pick up The Magnolia Sisters.
