When Elliott Cruz first courted struggling single mom Karen Ames, it was a romance worthy of any Sweet Magnolia fantasy. The sexy personal trainer made it his mission to restore Karen's strength - physical and emotional - and to charm her children.

Now, a few years into the marriage, colliding dreams threaten to tear them apart. Elliott's desire to finance the business opportunity of a lifetime with their hard-earned baby money stirs Karen's deep-rooted financial insecurities. It's the discovery that their brother-in-law is cheating on Elliott's sister - and thinks it's justified - that puts their irreconcilable differences into perspective. Will their own loving fidelity be a bond so strong they can triumph against all odds?

    " Good addition to the Sweet Magnolias series. It had been awhile since I'd read the other ones but I enjoyed catching up on the characters from previous books in the series. Female lead is a little too gun shy for my taste, needs more therapy! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anneka | 2/6/2014

    " It was ok. I liked the ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki | 2/2/2014

    " Have read all the books so far in this series. Always look forward to the next one. "

    " Just a little too dull for me "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 1/30/2014

    " I enjoy this series. It was nice to read a book about a real marriage, although the main character seemed to waffle back and forth about her marriage. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 CAL | 1/26/2014

    " I love anything Sweet Magnolia's. Let me say that right up front. I could totally relate to Elliott & his family (I to am Catholic & Hispanic) I understand that whole Machismo attitude. I can also relate strongly to Karen's with her financial fears due to being left without. As a product of of divorce as a child I to came with fear into my marriage. Never like this. Thank God! Poor Elliott!!! This thing with Karen after a while was getting to be a bit much. But, in Karen's defense full disclosure is always best. It all ended well all the supporting characters were as gun as ever. Other then Karen being to much after awhile this book was a 4 1/2 stars. "

    " Good Book, but I read all of her books and am very fond of the Sweet Magnolia Series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth Mills | 1/18/2014

    " In Midnight Promises Sherryl Woods takes us back to Serenity and the Sweet Magnolias. The main focus is on single mother Karen, who has married Eliot and finally has security for herslef and her two young children. The two are deeply in love but find marriage unexpectedly difficult as each caries baggage from the past--Eliot a tendency to take charge without explanations that's part of his Hispanic family heritage and Karen a deep fear of financial insecurity left over from paying off her ex-husband's debts. When Eliot risks the family's savings on what he feels is the business opportunity of a lifetime the marriage is put at risk. Can Karen learn to overcome her fears? Can Eliot learn to treat his wife as an equal partner in the marriage. Old friends from previous novels are on hand to help Karen and Eliot--and add some spice and humor to the story as well. All in all, a satisfying and enjoyable return to Serenity; Woods' many fans will be pleased. "

    " Woods does more with romance novels than most writers. Views on divorce, Alzheimier's, and other topics introduce real life scenarios into the story. Even tho it ends on a happy note, there are moments of pain. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kerstin | 1/17/2014

    " When I grab one of these supermarket romances, I'm looking for a light summer story..this couple had too many issues. Ick. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danise | 1/15/2014

    " Want to go back and read books 1-7 in this series. Had fun meeting the Sweet Magnolias. Was also interesting to read a book about a couple that is already married and their struggles, since in real life that's what marriage is like. It's not all happily ever after. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 1/1/2014

    " Love Sherryl Woods books but getting bored with this series. Felt this book was just written to add another to the series but there really wasn't any meaning to it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 12/17/2013

    " I love the Sweet Magnolia series, but this book was repetitive and (dare I say) boring. I will read more, but I am glad I didn't buy this! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diana | 12/2/2013

    " This was a great book about a woman who has come from a bad marriage and is trying to work with her new husband to get the trust they need for the long haul. All the friends and family that is added in is just a plus. Another great book from a great author. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tara | 11/2/2013

    " Such another good insight to Karen and Elliots story.. We didnt get enough of them in the previous book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janet | 9/23/2013

    " Good Fluff read. Helpful if you have read the other books in the series but not necessary. "
