Steal My Magnolia is more than a love story. It’s a beautifully crafted journey of life full of obstacles but a journey worth the travel with the right person.” –Author Andrea Johnston

Steal My Magnolia, an all-new heartwarming small-town romance from Karla Sorensen, is now available in Kindle Unlimited! 

Life lesson from Grady Buchanan: If you’re going to fall in love with the untouchable girl in town, don’t hire her as your only employee.

Even after he bungled the interview with Magnolia MacIntyre, he knew better than to hire her. The list of why it’s a bad idea is a long one.

Her father could ruin his fledgling business.

She is completely overqualified.

And he’s attracted to her.

What does Grady do? He offers her the job.

Magnolia knew better than to take it. Normally, she’d make the safe choice, and working for Grady is anything but.

He’s new in town–and entirely too charming.

Her dad will be furious.

She hates the outdoors and working for an outdoor adventure company is not exactly the right fit.

What does she do? She says yes on the spot.

Grady and Magnolia will have to prove to everyone in their life that they’re not crazy. And prove to each other that the list of why it’s a bad idea should be tossed out the window.

For these two opposites, sometimes doing the wrong thing is exactly right.

‘Steal My Magnolia’ is a full-length contemporary romance and can be read as a standalone. Book #3 in the Love At First Sight series, Green Valley Chronicles, Penny Reid Book Universe.

About Karla Sorensen

Karla Sorensen has been an avid reader her entire life, preferring stories with a happily-ever-after over just about any other kind. And considering she has an entire line item in her budget for books, she realized it might just be cheaper to write her own stories. It doesn’t take much to keep her happy…a book, a really big glass of wine, and at least thirty minutes of complete silence every day. She still keeps her toes in the world of health care marketing, where she made her living pre-babies. Now she stays home, writing and mommy-ing full time (this translates to almost every day being a ‘pajama day’ at the Sorensen household…don’t judge). She lives in West Michigan with her husband, two exceptionally adorable sons and big, shaggy rescue dog.

My Review...

The Buchanan curse strikes again!

I am so enamored by this world that Ms. Sorensen has created in the Green Valley world! Her stories flow so seamlessly into the world that Penny Reid has created and created her own corner of Green Valley that I love just as much!

This is the story of Grady and Magnolia. There is awkwardness aplenty and when the curse strike Grady, well he just doesn’t know what to do!

Magnolia is a southern belle, she was raised on etiquette classes. She was born and bred to be a lady. She knew her place that her family has plotted for her and for the longest time, she did what she was told. When a huge shakeup happens in her world, she realizes just how “go with the flow” she has been doing and she wants to be done. I love her character, her inner strength and her outer beauty. She is a beautiful soul.

Grady is full of big hopes and dreams, he has a million ideas and just doesn’t know how to sort everything out. His organization skills are not pretty and he needs help! When he unknowingly hires Magnolia to help his fledgling business, well the curse strikes him hard! He knows that there is a complicated history between his twin sister and Magnolia, but his heart wants her and he is overwhelming swoony in the way he goes about trying to work everything out.

I could so empathize with both Grady and Magnolia about the trickiness of their situation and their developing relationship. And reading Grady’s honesty and forthrightness was both swoony and scary. 

I absolutely loved this story and I cannot wait to see the next story in this series!
