Where Azaleas Bloom
Enter contractor Mitch Franklin, an unlikely knight in shining armor. A widower with two grieving sons, Mitch once admired Lynn from afar. Now he sees in her not only the sweet girl who got away, but a woman desperately in need of support. While rushing to the rescue of Lynn and her children comes naturally to Mitch, he’s also wise enough to encourage Lynn to find her own way…hopefully straight into his arms.
My heart went out to Lynn as she struggles financially while going through a divorce and must deal with her soon to be ex who is behind on child support and is off on expensive trips often. This woman and her children are actually at the point of going hungry, thankfully they have friends and neighbors that help and would do more if they knew her dire financial situation.
Mitch is a sweetheart, such a kind man with a caring heart. He's a romantic and his old fashioned courtship was touching. Senior Magnolias Liz, Flo, and Frances' stories are wrapped up nicely. We're brought up to date on Karen and Elliott also. An enjoyable read with heartwarming moments.
I received an ecopy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
