Among the fair magnolias

This book was given to me to review for booksneeze. This Book is made up of 4 stories from the south.I enjoyed the stories though I felt that some of the relationships could have been explored more in depth. I'm not sure that some of the characters were greatly developed and would have enjoyed learning more about each one of the characters. I enjoyed that the characters had to make some tough decisions in which to continue on in their futures. Overall though I would definitlely reccomend this book to anyone.
