Book Description

Maggie Sweet has had it! For nineteen years, she's kept house, raised a pair of battling twin daughters, put up with her frugal husband, Steven, humored his impossible mother, and kept her mouth shut. But when Steven spends their life savings on a cemetery plot, it's time for Maggie to take control.

With her twenty-year high school reunion just around the corner and her long-lost high school boyfriend back in town, it's Maggie's turn to start turning heads. In the face of small-minded gossips, a surly family, and a meddling grandmother, Maggie must reach deep inside her Southern-housewife soul to become the woman she's always wanted to be.

Maggie Sweet was a happy surprise for me and I hope to find more books by Judith Minthorn-Stacy. I found myself being transported to Poplar Grove in America's Southland. The story is both sad and funny, the language eloquent and original.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very entertaining, light, quick reading. 14 Jan. 2002
By Cheer Mom - Published on
Any woman who is in her 40's who has had a marriage that didn't quite live up to her dreams will find a soul mate in Maggie Sweet. Always doing the right thing and being a good girl doesn't mean that life is fair. It isn't. Maggie suddenly comes to that realization when she hears that her first and only true love is coming back into town for their 20 year high school reunion. All of sudden, Maggie realizes that her safe secure marriage is nothing more than being stuck with a boring old pretentious cheapskate - and his absolutely horrible snob of a mother.
While the different quirky characters are not unique (you'll recognize the town gossip, the spinster schoolmarms, the best friend with a heart as big as gold) - they are entertaining and the story is told in a very charming way - it's a wonderful little story about coming of age (no matter what your age is).

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming, heart warming and funny. 3 Oct. 1999

Fun and easy to read. Enjoyed the characters and southern dialogue. Maggie is an unhappy housewife who begins to assert herself and finally take charge of her life. A very entertaining read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely adorable! 9 Dec. 2004
By Tonya Speelman - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I loved this book from cover to cover. I love our main character Maggie Sweet. I identified with her very well. Although, I was hoping that things would have turned out better for her and her husband, I hope that she finds true love wherever she may end up. I can't wait to read the next installment! I would have loved the other characters to have more of a female closeness but this book still delighted me!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Sweet Read 26 Jun. 2001
By Donna M. Hall - Published on
I read the first couple of pages of this book to get a good feel for it when it was given to me. I was immediately captured and drawn in by the characters... so much that I still haven't finished the book I was already reading. I grew to love Maggie and hate everything and everyone that stood in her way. It was an easy read and I greatly enjoyed it. I highly recommend this as light summer reading!
