How hard could one year of swipes and matches and awkward first dates be?

Title: The Magnolia Chronicles:
Adventures in Modern Dating

Author: Kate Canterbary

Release Date: April 02, 2019


My mother’s New Year’s resolution for me was simple: make a serious effort at putting myself out there and dating again, and do it for one full year.

Or until I fell in love. Whichever came first.

How hard could one year of swipes and matches and awkward first dates be?

In a word: bad.

In nine words: bad and also hilarious, demoralizing, exhausting, and ridiculously amusing.

But the only thing worse than dating in the era of hookup apps and unsolicited dick pics is the absolute whole-life-flail of falling in love.

Kate Canterbary doesn’t have it all figured out, but this is what she knows for sure: spicy-ass salsa and tequila solve most problems, living on the ocean–Pacific or Atlantic–is the closest place to perfection, and writing smart, smutty stories is a better than any amount of chocolate. She started out reporting for an indie arts and entertainment newspaper back when people still read newspapers, and she has been writing and surreptitiously interviewing people—be careful sitting down next to her on an airplane—ever since.

Kate lives on the water in New England with Mr. Canterbary and the Little Baby Canterbary, and when she isn’t writing sexy architects, she’s scheduling her days around the region’s best food trucks.

“Goddamn, stop making me like you Magnolia….” I hear ya pal, I hear ya…

Kate Canterbary has made magic again with The Magnolia Chronicles.  This story can be read as a stand alone, but don’t do that to yourself.  This story is tangentially related to the Walsh Series.  Magnolia is a character that was introduced in Necessary Restorations. She was a character that generated some strong feelings, some very volatile emotions.  But here is where Kate’s magic and fantastic talent for writing comes in force.

The Magnolia Chronicles shows us that no matter what, there are two sides to every story, to every epic moment that changes lives.  Kate made Magnolia real, relatable and flawed.  Kate also showed us that Magnolia is worthy of love and respect.  Kate is gonna make you change your mind.

Magnolia has made some epic mistakes in her past relationships.  When her mom decides to “help” her with dating, Magnolia gets way more than she bargains for.

As always you are going to get a wickedly funny, smart romance that is going to make you think.  This story is going to relate to you in some small way. (Or a huge way to me!)

I always feel smarter when I read a Kate Canterbary book.  I don’t know why but I do.  I also enjoy the fact that Kate doesn’t talk down to her readers, she grabs them by the hand and pulls them along for the ride.  I absolutely love the world she creates in her stories.  I loved the small glimpses into the Walsh siblings.

You cannot go wrong with a Kate Canterbary story, you just can’t.  I will be patiently waiting for yet another epic story from Kate’s world.  Well done Writerlady, well done!
