A SLICE OF HEAVEN
Genre: Contemporary Romance, General Contemporary Romance
Woods continues her Sweet Magnolias trilogy with this topical, interesting story. The characters are nicely layered, and the conflict is believable, but there's little romance to be found -- owing to the focus on the heroine's daughter.
Two years ago, Dana Sue Sullivan's husband, Ronnie, had a brief fling with another woman, and she threw him out. Now divorced and running a successful restaurant, Dana Sue does occasionally think about her ex, but not always kindly! But when their daughter Annie's eating disorder reaches a crisis point, Dana Sue allows herself to lean on Ronnie, because he's still close to the teenager.
Ronnie's devastated by Annie's illness, but he's happy to step up -- and maybe get a second chance with his ex-wife. Tired of drifting, Ronnie wants his family back, but first, he has to win Dana Sue's trust -- which isn't going to be easy. (MIRA, Mar., 400 pp., $6.99)
