Reviews On Magnolia Lane (Blue Ridge #3)

  • Cara Putman
    In On Magnolia Lane, Denise Hunter takes readers on a journey into love that plumbs the depths of identity. Daisy's perception of herself and her family is shaken at a foundational level, while Jack believes the woman he loves will never see him as he really is. In the pages of this story, Denise Hunter invites readers to explore how their perceptions may be limiting their present and their dreams. A rich read with characters I will think about o...

    A heartwarming contemporary romance in a cozy small town setting! This delightful story starts out with a fun rom-com feel, then hits on some deep issues. The third book in the Blue Ridge series, this easily reads as a standalone. "Unrequited love was awful. No wonder there were so many country songs about it." I was quickly smitten with Pastor Jack and felt for him in his crush on the cheerful Daisy, owner of a flower shop. What a cute pair they...

    Why has it taken me this long to read a book by Denise Hunter?! This book was adorable!I went into this story knowing it was the last book in the series. I felt this absolutely stood well on its own. I enjoyed learning about the fate of the couples from earlier stories and I do plan on reading the series in its entirety.On Magnolia Lane is the story of Pastor Jack McReady and local florist Daisy Pendleton. (A florist named Daisy! Love it!) Daisy ...

His friends rope him into an online dating site to court her and before you know it the situation is worse than when he began.Daisy herself has to deal with secrets about her family that she has uncovered.They both have to learn forgiveness and accept the impe...

    4.5 starsOn Magnolia Lane is utterly delightful. A story about grace and forgiveness in the face of betrayal, of falling in love even if it’s a little unexpected, and of community coming together to support and protect, On Magnolia Lane is so very easy to savour and enjoy.Daisy Pendleton doesn’t mind being single, but she’d really rather like to find a wonderful guy who can love her and she him. That’s why she has joined a dating site and...

    'Sometimes you just have to extend a little grace to people. Not because they deserve it...but because we don't deserve it either.'Denise Hunter visits her Blue Ridge Romance series again with this third offering and, in my opinion, the best yet.Pastor Jack McReady has been in love with Daisy for a while now, but she's a member of his congregation and he feels that he doesn't deserve her. He's counseled her numerous times but still feels guilty a...
  • Amy
    As beautiful as the cover, this story brings together two people who share a love of God & community. This desire to serve others is not something that every person has. We’ve met both of these characters previously in this series from Denise Hunter, set in Georgia. They are the final 2 in a group of longtime friends. Jack, is the Pastor of Daisy’s church, and someone she has looked up to and considered a good friend for many years. However, ...

    My FAVORITE movie is "You've Got Mail" so you can imagine that this book would be perfection to me! Denise Hunter always weaves a beautiful romance and her books can never come out quick enough for my liking. SO many feels...

    On Magnolia Lane is a great addition to the Blue Ridge Romance series. As is always the case with this author the book is extremely well written. Great plot and well developed believable characters. I highly recommend this book.i received an ARC from the publisher via Netgalley and this is my unbiased review.
  • Patti Whitson Stephenson
    This review is going to gush a little bit over Denise Hunter’s latest book.I love reading a well-written, clean, sweet, heart-warming, faith-based romance. I absolutely adored Jack and Daisy. I keep wanting to use the word “sweet” here over and over, but it’s true. They are a such a sweet, charming, loveable couple. Their story has several twists and turns on their way to happily-ever-after, but oh, that last scene when their dreams come ...
  • Melissa
    On Magnolia Lane is a wonderful ending to Denise Hunter's Blue Ridge Romance series. In this story two characters that have appeared in the previous two books take center stage. Daisy Pendleton, the local florist has been receiving counseling from her pastor, Jack McReady. Problem is, he's fallen in love with her and she's never seen him as anything more than her friend and pastor. Jack can't seem to figure out how to make her see him as just a m...

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from Thomas Nelson through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.My love of Denise Hunter books started back in 2016. This is now my 11th book that I’ve read by her. So it’s safe to say that I love everything she writes. This book did not disappoint. After finishing Honeysuckle Dreams I didn’t know how I was going to last until November for this book to come out. So I...

    This series just keeps getting better!! Daisy and Jack’s story will have you cheering, shaking your head, and crying the next. The development we see of both Daisy and Jack individually helps to build an incredible love story. Daisy’s story reminds us to not put anyone on a pedestal as we are all humans in need of grace. As we see, it isn’t always easy to give grace but once we do, the reward is well worth it. I loved watching Daisy grow to...

    Denise Hunter is one of those authors that makes me raise my hand and go, "Pick me! Pick me!" when they ask who wants to read this next book. I look forward to her stories and have not been disappointed yet. When I got a glimpse of these two characters back in Blue Ridge Sunrise and Honeysuckle Dreams I was so hoping she would tell their story. And it's a good one.I love that Denise portrays Jack as just regular person who happens to be a pastor....
  • Lucinda
    3 1/2 stars.We've known that Pastor Jack has a crush on Daisy and I was glad to see their story take place. Unfortunately, it felt a bit one-sided, with the reader knowing more of Jack's feelings than Daisy's. Daisy has a lot going on in her life, and Jack is always there to counsel her and support her, but she doesn't see him as a friend until closer to the end. Not my favorite but still a good read. I received a complimentary copy of this book ...
  • Stephanie
    I've enjoyed the other books in the Blue Ridge Romance series and On Magnolia Lane just might be my favorite of the series. Full review to come closer to release date.
  • Joan Arning
    Pastor Jack McReady is an excellent male protagonist who is insecure around women. The leading female is Daisy Pendleton, a giving person, who has dyslexia and doesn’t feel qualified to be a pastor’s wife although she admires Pastor Jack and thinks he is attractive! The road to romance is very rocky for Daisy and Pastor Jack. Daisy suffers several disappointments in people and learns to forgive and give grace to others. Denise has written ano...

    Author Denise Hunter gives us Daisy and Jack’s love story in this addition to the A Blue Ridge Romance series. For me this was the best book in the series, and I hesitate to say that because all the books are 5 star wonderful. I connected with the main character Daisy on many levels and enjoyed her journey of forgiveness and grace. This author is so very talented in presenting four dimensional characters. I love the depth of Jack she reveals in...

    Every time a new book in this series comes out, it immediately flies to the top of my TBR pile. Christian romances are not my typical genre but the last few books I've read have been suspense thrillers so I wanted something fluffy.This installment focuses on Pastor Jack and his years long crush on Daisy. He's interested in her and she's interested in being in love so both find themselves on a dating site. Unbeknownst to her though (he used photos...

    This book was the perfect christian chick-lit read! Being easy to read, I immediately got drawn into the story line and loveable characters. Daisy who is such a endearing girl, has a stranger come into her flower shop one day and purchase flowers "for an old friend". Later, these flowers are found by her fathers grave and the story line follows Daisy finding out what this womens relationship with her father was. Her friend Jack is a great support...

    #OnMagnoliaLane #NetGalleyGood, classic read! It was a revealing side to online dating and how you create a persona that could be the truth and could be a lie, depending on your intentions and how your intentions are perceived. I received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
  • Gail
    I received a free copy from Net Galley for my honest review.A sweet Christian romance story about falling in love and following your dreams. A story of how a small town comes together during a disaster to support each other. I enjoyed the story.
  • Megan
    I got this book from the publisher to review. Denise has always been one of my favorite authors. This book was refreshing and at the end of the book I felt like I really knew the characters personally. I would totally recommend this book (the whole series actually)
  • Katie(babs)
    Cute and very sweet romance with a uber-beta hero and a clueless heroine who can't see what's right in front of her face. There isn't a lot of drama here so the conflict s very minimal. A simple romance that should hit your sweet spot.
  • Sherry
    Daisy Pendleton loves her small town life and working with her mom at the flower-shop. But as nice as that is, she really longs for a husband and family like her good friends have. She’s tried online dating without success, that is until TJ sent her a message. Pastor Jack McReady has been counseling Daisy for a couple of years and has fallen in love with her. He doesn’t want to risk what they have by telling her how he feels. Jack’s friend ...
