Publisher's Summary

Dana Sue might run the best little restaurant in Serenity, but when you're feeding a small town of neighbors, busybodies, and best friends, things can get a bit hot in the kitchen. Never mind that she's putting on too many pounds (an occupational hazard for a chef)—she's worried about her too-skinny teenage daughter, Annie, who has been slowly starving herself since the loud, suitcase-tossing, name-calling fit on her front lawn that left Dana Sue minus one cheating husband.

But sometimes life picks strange ways to mend fences. When Annie lands in the hospital, Dana Sue reaches out to the man she loves to hate: Ron, the husband who took her heart when she tossed him out. Ron is still Annie's white knight, even if he's decidedly more tarnished in Dana Sue's eyes. But he still looks good enough to eat, and maybe, just maybe, to forgive.

Once, Ron made the mistake of letting go without a proper fight. But now Dana Sue is about to get another taste of sweet devotion from a man tired of feeling like a fool, hungry for that slice of heaven he found with her.

Savor more Sweet Magnolias.

FUN SERIES

What did you love best about A Slice of Heaven?

The characters are real and although age is an issue in all of them, I liked the story line.

What did you like best about this story?

The reality of the problems they are facing.

Have you listened to any of Janet Metzger’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but I am not crazy about her. Her voice is older than most and the series is about feeling young. Not one of my favorite narrators. I will not be looking for books she is performing.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Age does not matter.

Full of Southern Charm and a Delightful Read

A Slice of Heaven is the second book in the Sweet Magnolias series. Sherryl Woods has an entertaining way of getting the reader's attention and focusing it on issues pertinent to today. This book takes two disorders and zeros in on them and their impact on the family, while keeping the reader entertained. She focuses on anorexia and diabetes and the struggles that the patient and the family experience. Although everyone won't experience the particular problem Ronnie and Dana Sue face, the family dynamics she portrays are things most of us will experience, regardless of the reason for them. In addition, the friendships between the three lead female characters are enjoyable and make the reader smile while reading. Ms. Woods' writing and the display of her Southern roots are enjoyable and full of comfort and charm. I look forward to the other books in this series and have already purchased several of them for future listening pleasure.

Slow Paced

I found the story to be a bit too sweet and sorely lacking in the angst department. I liked the narrator, characters, friendships and the premise of the story but it was just so slow paced and boring at times that I couldn’t wait to finish and move on to a new book.

I do enjoy a series....

I like the strong and loyal relationship the Sweet Magnolia women share. I'll probably continue with this series.
