Goodbye, Magnolia Thoughts
About the Book
Wedding photography is Maggie’s passion. The art of capturing a moment forever in time is magical to her, and she’s worked hard to become the best of the best. Week after week, she works with couples as they plan their happily ever afters, but she hasn’t been so lucky in love.
Behind the camera, it’s easy to hide from the pain and rejection of her past. The life she has made for herself is safe and predictable, until the owner of a rival photography studio sets up shop in her small town and comes to her with an unexpected proposal. Suddenly, everything she has worked so hard to build is threatened and her simple, controlled life is thrown into chaos.
As she travels the state of Michigan photographing weddings, she struggles to keep her business afloat and the wall around her heart intact. But along the way, she learns more about loyalty and love than she ever imagined. (Krista Noorman Website)
I love reading new authors and was so excited to read this novel by Krista Noorman. I love the cover and the entire storyline sounded like a pretty good setting for a love story. The book spans a few years so I actually liked that concept within the story because the relationship doesn't just happen in an instant. So many romance stories make everything seem so easy and fast but this book makes it realistic. I liked the characters and the professional photographer setting/idea. This book takes you into the life of Maggie and what she sees behind the camera. The flow of the book is good with the storyline, while the dialogue was okay, sometimes I thought the words were forced and awkward. The title of each chapter starts with the date-which is fine if you are spanning more than six months. As a reader, I didn't need the week by week timeline and date. That is just my opinion and it certainty didn't take away from the storyline it's just a pet peeve of mine as a reader.
That all being said this is a fun book that is a light clean romance and I highly recommend!
