Midnight Promises: Sweet Magnolias, Book 8

When Elliott Cruz first courted struggling single mom Karen Ames, it was a romance worthy of any Sweet Magnolia fantasy. The sexy personal trainer made it his mission to restore Karen’s strength - physical and emotional - and to charm her children. Now, a few years into the marriage, colliding dreams threaten to tear them apart. Elliott’s desire to finance the business opportunity of a lifetime with their hard-earned “baby money” stirs Karen’s deep-rooted financial insecurities.

Publisher's Summary

When Elliott Cruz first courted struggling single mom Karen Ames, it was a romance worthy of any Sweet Magnolia fantasy. The sexy personal trainer made it his mission to restore Karen’s strength - physical and emotional - and to charm her children.

Now, a few years into the marriage, colliding dreams threaten to tear them apart. Elliott’s desire to finance the business opportunity of a lifetime with their hard-earned “baby money” stirs Karen’s deep-rooted financial insecurities. It’s the discovery that their brother-in-law is cheating on Elliott’s sister - and thinks it’s justified - that puts their irreconcilable differences into perspective. Will their own loving fidelity be a bond so strong they can triumph against all odds?

    "Another great visit to Serenity!"
    What made the experience of listening to Midnight Promises the most enjoyable?

    I love this narrator. The narrator can make or break an audiobook and this one does not use a fake southern accent. It was good to hear more about Elliott and Karen.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Midnight Promises?

    Elliotts family and his struggle to break away from old family traditions and expectations


    What does Janet Metzger bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    All the characters are unique and real. A prior narrator made Mattie sound harsh and unapproachable. She's the character I like updates on the most.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    no.


    Any additional comments?

    The ending was not believable. After spending the entire book on Karen's worry about money, it wasn't believable that she would go gambling in Vegas.

    Not great.

    "OK, but too much gloom and doom!"

    Book 8 for the Sweet Magnolias. . . good renewal of older characters, but too much negative storylines. Francis with Altzheimers and Karen is such a winer! She really doesn't deserve Elliot. Just didn't seem to up to the joys of some of the other books. Would still read more, but hope Sherryl is happier for the next one.
