They always say you can’t judge a book by its cover, well I chose my books by their cover, most of the time. The Sweet Smell of Magnolias and Memories is one of those. I was drawn to this book the moment I saw the cover. (Plus, I am drawn to all things magnolia.) It was a nice easy read with a story that pulls at the heart strings.
On a roof time during a flood, is that where someone expects to find the love of their life? Usually no, but that is what Jacey is wondering a year later after meeting Colin in that exact way. Is he the love of her life and where does she go to find him? But they find each other in the most unexpected way and what ensures is a journey they both must take to see if the feelings they have toward each other is love or something else.
I enjoyed taking the journey with Jacey and Colin. They have some bumps along the way, which of course makes the story more interesting. I have never read a story quite like this before, it was an easy read that opened my eyes a little at the same time. I will keep books Celeste Fletcher McHale on my watch list. I know she has one other one that I have not read yet but I am hoping to soon.
