Goodbye, Magnolia by Krista Noorman was a great read. Once I learned that one of the main characters is named Margaret I love it even more. I could see a lot of myself in Maggie and that helped me connect more with the story and the book. I really enjoyed this authors style of writing and how she went about telling the story. Some authors have either too much detail or not enough but this author had just the right amount of detail to keep me interested but not so much that I got bogged down in details and didn’t want to finish the book. I would be lying if I wasn’t hoping that Maggie and Simon would end up together in the end. From the first chapter they seemed so perfect for each other. If you love romance novels than I would for sure have recommend this one to you
About The Book
Wedding photography is Maggie’s passion. The art of capturing a moment forever in time is magical to her, and she’s worked hard to become the best of the best. Week after week, she works with couples as they plan their happily ever afters, but she hasn’t been so lucky in love.
Behind the camera, it’s easy to hide from the pain and rejection of her past. The life she has made for herself is safe and predictable, until the owner of a rival photography studio sets up shop in her small town and comes to her with an unexpected proposal. Suddenly, everything she has worked so hard to build is threatened and her simple, controlled life is thrown into chaos.
As she travels the state of Michigan photographing weddings, she struggles to keep her business afloat and the wall around her heart intact. But along the way, she learns more about loyalty and love than she ever imagined.
