Series: The Sweet Magnolias #3

Description:

Helen Decatur spent a lifetime setting goals--getting through college and law school, opening her own practice, becoming financially secure and establishing herself as one of the most highly respected matrimonial attorneys in the state of South Carolina. Achieving those goals was a breeze compared to the one she's faced with now.


The most driven--and cynical--of the Sweet Magnolias, Helen is forty-two, single and suddenly ready for the family she's put on the back burner for all these years. Unfortunately, having a child at her age comes with lots of complications, not the least of which is the absence of a serious relationship in her life.

But Helen's not the type of woman to wait around for fate to step in. Taking charge of her own destiny puts her at odds with her two best friends, sets sparks flying with a man who doesn't want a family, and leads her straight into the most unexpected complication of all...love.

My Thoughts:

Sweet Magnolia Helen wants a baby in the worst way possible, she's made lists and more lists on top of that now if only she could find a way to go about it.  Erik the pastry chef at Sullivan's has had his share of heartbreak and will do anything not to go back, he keeps Helen as casual as can be.

Karen an assistant chef to Dana Sue is having all sorts of issues between being a single mom, and trying to juggle work.  She ends up seeking out advice from Helen about how to keep her job.  Helen, Dana Sue and Erik along with Karen try to work out a deal to benefit them all, and that is when Tess appears on the scene as another part time chef in training.

Helen also is dealing with her client's crazy soon to be ex husband who has fallen completely off the reservation.  Everyone in Serenity is concerned over her and her client's safety.

It was great to go back to Serenity and catch up with The Sweet Magnolia's and see what they are up too.  I always enjoy reading about the southern town and the women that make it roll!
