When bullying threatens to destroy a teen’s life, painful memories resurface for dedicated high-school teacher Laura Reed and pediatrician J. C. Fullerton. With the support of the Sweet Magnolias, they bring the town together to ensure that a promising student’s future isn’t ruined. And to establish once and for all that bullying has no place in Serenity, South Carolina.
Both J.C.’s and Laura’s passion for the cause is deeply personal, and their growing feelings for each other are just as strong. But with so many secret hurts to overcome, can these two vulnerable lovers find the strength to believe in happily ever after?

"Woods always thrills with her wonderful characters, witty dialogue and warm and loving family interactions." (RT Book Reviews)
Love books, preferably romance and suspense. Typically read/listen to 3-5 a week.
This book tackled bullying which has been a problem for many years. The author did a good job in making a decent story out of this age-old problem. She did a good job in showing how serious the problem can be and how it affects so many in it's trail. The story was believable and realistic in it's execution. The story also focused on a couple going through some marriage problems as well. This portion of the story was not as developed as it could have been, but it did not taken away from the story too much. It did not distract.
I was happy to see some of the regulars. Wish there was more of what was going on in their lives. This is a cute town and it proved how the magnolias went to work to put this issue to rest and do what magnolias do, support each other.
This is an important subject, but it was so boring, I tried several times to finish, but was not successful.
More joy, more story. Where were the Sweet Magnolias?
Skip the "bullying " story. It went on and on and on.
All the "bullying " story.
I did not need all the that sanctimonious speech. I was expecting a real Sweet Magnolias story. I did not even finish the book. First time for a Sheryl Woods book.
Better than many. Nice easy read. Feels like an update on old friends. Made me want to re-read the book where the main character was introduced.
Yes. Light reading with likable, real characters
