    Amusing and entertaining

    Favorite Quotes: Buy Pizza and Get Gas at Gino’s Gas and Go! She grimaced. The best pizza in Willow Hill, which just happened to be located in a gas station, needed to change their motto. … in general teenaged boys are like jackals. They’ll turn on you with bared teeth, tell you they hate your guts, and then they’ll ask you to fix them a grilled cheese sandwich. ‘That was the most perfect day.’ Looking dreamy, she clasped her hands together… Linny nodded, remembering Jerry’s nephew drinking too much beer and driving an ATV into the porta-potty the minister’s wife was using, and Jerry’s uncle from Possum Trot, North Carolina, eating his first shrimp ever and going into anaphylactic shock. But she just smiled at her sister. ‘I only got the necessities,’ Mama said looking self-righteous as she pulled out toilet tissue, marshmallows, two half gallons of ice cream, caramel popcorn, a bag of pork rinds, and a big box of 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 and relevant and well-paced. Ms. Schild’s writing, as always, was engaging and full of levity, humorous descriptions, and 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.

    Adventure Filled Romance

    This was my first Susan Schild story, but it won't be my last. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about the adventures Linny took with her mother and her friends while RVing on their trip. They seemed to learn more about themselves as well as grew closer together as they learned more about each other. Linny had major issues to deal with at home all while she and her new husband Jack seemed to have one curve ball after another thrown in their newlywed life. From her stepson coming to live with them right after the honeymoon, to dealing with the ex-wife and her issues. How will things turn out for Linny and Jack? You'll have to read SWEET SOUTHERN HEARTS to find out. But this sweet loving romance novel will be worth the time. There are lots of twists, turns and bumps in the road along the way. However you'll feel the love throughout the story, just amazing. I laughed, felt the frustration from the characters as well as shed a few tears (especially in the end)! Go for what makes you happy!! I received an ARC via Tasty Book Tours through NetGalley in exchange for an honest blog tour review. Favorite Passage ~ He directs your course as surely as rivers run to the sea.

    Great ending to a wonderful series

    LINNY! JACK! Neal. I have mixed feelings about this book. I loved it, but am sad that it’s the last book in the series. I absolutely love the whimsical Linny, the ever patient – and sometimes too nice – Jack, and the typical tween Neal, who tests Linny’s patience…as well as the reader. And don’t forget Vera. Ugh, how the heckfire did Jack manage to handle that woman? And have a child with her!! Linny’s mother cracks me up, as does her gaggle of friends. Though it could be read as a stand alone, I highly suggest that you read all three books in order. Linnie’s growth and strength spreads across all three. Though naive in so many ways, she never loses sight of the big picture and deserves every good thing that happens to her. I find it hard to not give away spoilers, so this is all that I will say! The characters are easy to fall in love with and you find yourself staying up all night to finish. The writing flows excellently and there’s never a dull moment. Ms. Schild has done her characters justice in this trilogy and I can’t wait to see what else she has in store as she moves away from Linny (*sniffles*) and into new waters. DISCLAIMER: I requested a review copy of this book so that I could participate in the Tasty Books blog tour. All thoughts are my own.
