Emotionally wounded single mom Sarah Price has come home to Serenity, South Carolina, for a fresh start. With support from her two best friends—the newest generation of the Sweet Magnolias—she can face any crisis. But sometimes a woman needs more than even treasured friends can provide. Sexy Travis McDonald may be exactly what Sarah's battered self-confidence requires.
Sometimes the person you least expect to be your compliment is exactly the person you need in order to heal. It’s even better when it’s Sweet Tea and Sunrise.
Now I have to admit, I wasn’t familiar with the town or characters of Serenity, but I am hankering to get a hold of the earlier books. Ms. Woods characters are written with heart and integrity lacking in many stories. You find yourself sucked into their world from page one, but you don’t want to stop reading at the end—you want to know what happens next.
The heroine of the story, Sarah, at first wasn’t my favorite character because her self esteem resided somewhere below the sewer. I like seeing a character grow as the story progresses and she didn’t let me down. I wanted to see her grow a backbone a tad earlier, but when she finally decided what she wanted and what she needed, I rooted for her to succeed.
And talk about a sexy hero—Travis didn’t disappoint. I’m a sucker for ex-baseball players and contrary to his reputation as a ladies man, he’s quite the gentleman and you can’t ask for more. I give the man tons of credit for not giving up on Sarah, especially when others would’ve. The man has patience and that alone made him darned handsome.
Although the love scenes are more sensual in nature, you won’t come away disappointed. The interactions between Sarah and Travis are tender and sweet.
If you want a story filled with secondary stories that will warm your heart and unforgettable characters, then you need to read Sweet Tea at Sunrise.
