Linny and Jack have tied the knot and the great adventure of marriage beckons Linny has had two previous husbands, both now deceased and this one hopefully is going to be third time lucky.The book opens with the two on their honeymoon, engaged in a wild water rafting trip, Jack s choice Linny just hangs on, but it is kind of exhilarating for her too It turns out this is a kind of a metaphor for that first year of marriage as while there are some quiet patches in it, they sure hit a lot of rapids as well.Linny is a bit of a people pleaser, dutiful and responsible It s not long before things begin to mount up for her Her business needs her attention, her mother is throwing a hissy fit over a trip she had previously wanted to go on and now has cold feet Her stepson Neal is a two timer, sometimes adorable and sometimes the kid from hell Jack isn t dealing that well with his ex who has marriage problems His boundaries are rather weak Onto that load a crisis for sister Kate and an unexpected arrival on the doorstep Quite a lot to deal with Plus its that first year of marriage.Jack loves Linny but at times he annoyed me with his inability to speak up to his ex and his son where he needed to I wanted to eye him and tell him to man up He has a treasure take care of it As well there is three fun old women Linny s mother one of them who set out on an RV trip and have a little fun and romance along the way Life is full of second chances when you go looking.So there needs to be compromise, past life complications have to be dealt with and worked through, resentment might just be beginning to rear its ugly head As Mary Catherine Linny s good friend says to Linny she needs to toughen up Well a white water ride might just do that and I sure was relieved when that ride was completed and there were some very happy and proud rafters.While this is part of a trilogy, this book could easily be read alone The author deftly catches us up on the previous happenings Favorite

Luzianne tea.Those men claim they love sleeping under the stars on their air mattresses, but in the morning both of them walk crooked and smell like Bengay.My Review The talented scribe known as Susan Schild has delighted me once again with the latest addition to her highly entertaining Willow Hills series Sweet Southern Hearts was exactly that, and I adored it The endearing and highly relatable character of Linny quickly found herself sucked into a whirlwind of chaotic activity with no transition time to ease into her new roles of wife and stepmother Non stop challenges continually vexed her attempts at Zen such as the friction provided by her husband s demanding ex wife, her surly teenaged stepson pushing her limits, her fledgling new business contracts, and a senior citizen cross country freewheeling RV experience with her mother and two other widows Linny was beyond overwhelmed as she frantically juggled these many obligations into her already hectic calendar when an even bigger surprise landed on her doorstep I was holding my breath for sweet Linny for fear that either this new wrinkle or her spineless wuss of a husband would cause her to finally crash and burn The storyline was lively, relevant, and well paced Ms Schild s writing, as always, was engaging and full of levity, humorous descriptions, comical observations, insights, and inner musings Linny has an active imagination that I find highly amusing I also enjoy her colorful friends with the same level of enchantment and am already looking forward to future trips to Willow Hill This is the third book in the Willow Hill series This one can be read on its own, but it s nice to have read the first two for the background information It s not really necessary to have read the previous ones, though.The book starts out with Jack and Linny on their honeymoon They are having the perfect time, until family obligations interfere It feels as if everyone wants a piece of Linny from her mother to her sister to even her new husband expecting her to take a backseat to his ex wife This is the third book in the Willow Hill series This one can be read on its own, but it s nice to have read the first two for the background information It s not really necessary to have read the previous ones, though.The book starts out with Jack and Linny on their honeymoon They are having the perfect time, until family obligations interfere It feels as if everyone wants a piece of Linny from her mother to her sister to even her new husband expecting her to take a backseat to his ex wife and their teenage son While I certainly understand Jack s need to be there for his son, his constantly giving in to his ex wife at Linny s expense was annoying to me.After just a couple of weeks of marriage, Jack and Linny have to go their separate ways to accommodate Linny s mother and Jack s son Then, Linny s sister has a crisis and it s Linny to the rescue There are quite a few major obstacles for a brand new marriage, but the newlyweds make the best of it.The best way to describe this book is a huge slice of life The problems are all realistic, emotional and many readers will probably be able to identify with Linny I would have liked to seeinteraction between Jack and Linny, though Most of the time they were involved with other people The characters are all well written and developed to perfection It s a heartwarming novel which brings both tears and smiles until the last page is turned.FTC Disclosure I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book I was not required to write a positive review All opinions expressed are my own
