Review: Sweet Tea at Sunrise by Sherryl Woods

First line: For a few days now the same man, clad in snug denim and a T-shirt that caressed impressive biceps, had spent precisely thirty minutes in the back booth at Wharton's, lounging against the red vinyl as if he owned the place, and studying Sarah as if he found her to be the most fascinating creature on the planet.

From the back cover: Emotionally wounded single mom, Sarah Price has come home to Serenity, South Carolina, for a fresh start. With support from her two best friends - the newest generation of the Sweet Magnolias -she can face any crisis.

But sometimes a woman needs more than even treasured friends can provide. Sexy Travis McDonald may be exactly what Sarah's battered self-confidence requires. The newcomer is intent on getting Sarah to work at his fledgling radio station . . . and maybe into his bed, as well.

Sarah has learned not to trust sweet words. She'll measure the man by his actions. Is Travis the one to heal her heart? Or will he break it again?

My thoughts: Another great Sweet Magnolia story. This time the focus is on Sarah and Travis, each of whom are trying to overcome their past. Sarah is in the process of dealing with a divorce from a man who verbally abused her and Travis is trying to outlive his wide playboy ways from his professional ball-playing days. What I love about these books is the way Sherryl Woods portrays small-town life - everybody knows everybody else's business and loves to gossip, but they stand by their own and make sure no one gets hurt. The Sweet Magnolias, of course, become quite protective of Sarah, standing up for her and helping her to find her way. There are, of course, little side stories going on as well. The Mary Vaughn/Sonny storyline is comical as they try to prepare for the upcoming change to their lives and watching Walter, Sarah's ex, try to become a better person not only to Sarah, but also to daughter, was heartwarming. The most interesting side story, however, was Raylene's and I can't wait for the next book to find out her whole story!
