Her devastating marriage behind her, Raylene Hammond is truly thankful for her best friends, the Sweet Magnolias. They've taken her in, shielding her from the world. Then she meets sheriff's deputy Carter Rollins, and suddenly Raylene's haven no longer feels quite so safe.

Carter understands why Raylene is trapped inside. He's even taken to bringing the outside world to her. But with two kid sisters to raise, just how much time can he devote to this woman who's stolen his heart?

Raylene knows Carter is a man worth loving, but she may never be strong enough to accept what he's offering. How long can she ask him to wait? Maybe they'll never have more than this one sweet summer.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chiara | 2/14/2014

    " This was the best book out of the last 3. I enjoyed seeing Raylene conquer her fears and must admit that Walter and Rory Sue have been my favorite characters even if they were minor characters they made me laugh. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Naomi | 1/14/2014

    " Raylene Hammond is unable to leave the house because of being severely traumatized by abuse from her ex-husband. While she is watching her friend's children, one of them runs away and she is unable to find him because she can't get out the door. She meets a police officer who finds the child and gives her a hard time because he thinks she has been negligent about the children. This book does a good job telling about the problems of agoraphobia, a friendship of women and the love of family. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 8/30/2013

    " Enjoyed this one. Spousal abuse is the jist of the story. All ends well, and the characters were interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane | 8/15/2013

    " This is one in a series of books which I didn't realize when I started it. It held it's on but I would have still liked to have read the other books first. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 8/10/2013

    " Since it only took me a day to read this you know it was good. I liked the message the author gave in this story that anyone can overcome their fears, with love and support of friends and family. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanne | 8/1/2013

    " This is yet another second generation Sweet Magnolia book, the story of Raylene Hammond and Deputy Carter Rollins. The two "issues" dealt with are agorophobia on Raylene's part and anorexia on Carter's sister's part. I found the agonizing over these two issues just as annoying as they must be in real life. This series doesn't compare with Woods' earlier books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellen | 5/15/2013

    " Loved this as I did love all the others. Loved the mix of main characters and characters from the other books. Carter the main male character was so sweet, patient and so trying to do the right thing, especially for his sisters. Sad to see series end! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Randi | 2/18/2013

    " This author makes you feel that you are right in the city where the story takes place. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily Ross | 6/30/2012

    " I sped through this romance. I was intrigued by the heroine's battle with agoraphobia though her resistance to the main romance plot line got a bit old. Still happy endings are my favorite! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky | 6/8/2012

    " I loved this book and can't wait to read the others in this series. Not only was it entertaining, but it was very educational and inspirational. I really like the way Sherryl adds the romance with real life situations and issues. Excellent book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynda | 5/9/2012

    " This final volume of the Sweet Magnolias was much more interesting than the last two. Raylene, a minor character in the last two books is an abused wife who suffers from agoraphobia. Her struggle to overcome this condition with the help of a "too good to be true" man makes for inspiring reading. "
