Publisher's Summary

New York Times bestselling author Carolyn Brown brings together two wounded hearts in a Texas romance of second chances and twice-in-a-lifetime true love.

Inheriting the Magnolia Inn, a Victorian home nestled in the East Texas pines, is a fantasy come true for Jolene Broussard. After living with the guilt of failing to rescue her self-destructive mother, Jolene knows her aunt and uncle’s B&B is the perfect jump start for a new life and a comforting place to call home. There’s just one hitch: stubborn and moody carpenter Tucker Malone. He’s got a half interest in the Magnolia Inn, and he’s planting his dusty cowboy boots squarely in the middle of her dream.

Ever since his wife’s death, Tucker’s own guilt and demons have left him as guarded as Jolene. The last thing he expects is for his new partner to stir something inside him he thought was gone forever. And as wary as Jolene is, she may have found a kindred spirit - someone she can help, and someone she can hold on to.

Restoring the Magnolia Inn is the first step toward restoring their hearts. Will they be able to let go of the past and trust each other to do it together?

Critic Reviews

“Brown tugs hard at the heartstrings with an emotional contemporary about a grieving widower and a vulnerable bartender…The author does a first-rate job of depicting the devastating stages of grief, provides a simple but appealing plot with a sympathetic hero and heroine and a cast of lovable supporting characters, and wraps it all up with a happily ever after to cheer for.” (Publishers Weekly)

HEARTWARMING STORY

I love Carolyn Brown and this book is no exception.

A full cast of characters that make this story more than the coming together of the protagonists.

Two people that have had their share of grief come together to begin anew.

They are supposed to be only business partners, but some helpful souls try to steer them together. And they do!

There are hurdles to overcome, and old wounds that need to heal, but the journey was worth it.

This story is beautifully written, and I highly recommend it.

As always Carolyn Brown, The Magnolia Inn was beautifully written. The girls made me laugh and reminded me a lot of kin especially with the accents!

Feel good, down home Texas story.

This is the first time that I listened to a book by author Carolyn Brown. I strongly recommend it if you like romantic story! A beautiful story of two broken hearts who try a second time to trust and love someone! It’s a story that probably would fit into anyone’s life....so realistic, true, filled with different emotions, and love. Highly recommend this for a “feel good”, down home Texas story.

Predictable Romance

Okay if you want something that you can listen to with half an ear. Reminds me of Harlequin romances. And Chere is NOT pronounced as "chair".

Feel Good Love Story

Magnolia Inn is a sweet, feel good love story with two likeable, but emotionally tortured main characters, who meet just when they need each other to heal. The narrator did a very good job.
