Lissa's Review: The Magnolia Chronicles: Adventures in Modern Dating by Kate Canterbary

REVIEWER PURCHASE PUBLISHER: Vesper Press RELEASED: April 2, 2019 GENRE: contemporary romance LENGTH: 306 pages FORMAT: ebook, paperback


My mother's New Year's resolution for me was simple: make a serious effort at putting myself out there and dating again, and do it for one full year.

Or until I fell in love. Whichever came first.

How hard could one year of swipes and matches and awkward first dates be?

In a word: bad.

In nine words: bad and also hilarious, demoralizing, exhausting, and ridiculously amusing.

But the only thing worse than dating in the era of hookup apps and unsolicited dick pics is the absolute whole-life-flail of falling in love. FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS

Magnolia Chronicles is such a great read. You finally got to understand her, see her side of the story. And the troubled relationships she’s gone through. This story is about Magnolia finally figuring out what she wants, how she wants her life to be. No second guessing about her decisions and coming to terms about her past mistakes. I loved Magnolia and to see her grow and bloom into such an amazing woman. She is full of love, for her friends (those Walshes I miss them) her dog, her family. She was waiting for that right person to steal her heart. But of course, she didn’t think she’d have to choose between two men. One more complicated, then the other. But I think she always knew who it would be. There’s no denying those butterflies. I love Kate’s writing. I’ve missed it, I didn’t realize how much until I started this book. It took me a bit to finish. I was savoring those words and wanted the story to keep going and never end. I was not disappointed, and there’s so much learn with this story. Not just about Magnolia but I find any woman could see a little bit of Magnolia within themselves. We’ve all been there. Overall, Five Boundless Stars
