On Magnolia Lane Review


 About the Book

From the bestselling author of The Convenient Groom (now a beloved Hallmark Original movie) comes the final book in Hunter’s Blue Ridge Romance series.

Pastor Jack McReady has secretly carried a torch for Daisy for two long years. She’s a member of his congregation, after all, and she’ll never see him as more than a trusted counselor. Jack’s best friend Noah has taken every opportunity to encourage his lovesick friend, but when Noah catches wind that Daisy has joined an online dating site, he takes matters into his own hands and orchestrates a meet-cute of the most unconventional kind.

Owner of the local flower shop, Daisy Pendleton is content with her small-town life, but she’d sure like someone to share it with. After several disastrous first dates, she’s about to give up—and then she finds a seemingly wonderful man online. Daisy gets to know TJ through a series of messages but finds herself spending more time with Pastor Jack outside of the church at the same time. What she doesn’t know is that her online prospect and Jack are one and the same.

Just as Daisy’s love life starts to look promising, a mysterious woman appears in town. Daisy is faced with a revelation about her family that turns her world upside down, and she looks to both TJ and Jack for help.

Jack must find a way to reveal himself as her online suitor without breaking her heart and losing her trust. As Daisy faces Jack’s betrayal, she’ll have to learn to extend grace to herself, her family, and the man she’s grown to love. (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

  Back in a beautiful setting, Hunter takes us into the lives of Jack and Daisy. This was a pretty fast read, very much a Hallmark type story line. I will say that I liked how the author added some diversity of the characters. I also thought it was important for Jack to be a pastor because it really showed how pastors are people too, they mess us, they have feelings, etc. I think sometimes we hold them up as if they are without sin or capable of being hurt. That simply isn't the case and I thought that part of the story was well written. I found the side story of Daisy and her discovery interesting, while someone unrealistic. This was just a sweet little romance that was enjoyable. 

Four stars.
