    Let's have a talk..me and you. Yes, you reading this right now, I am talking to you. Let's be honest with each other, you are here for the same reason I was. I wanted an AMAZING romantic historical read and Melanie Dickerson is one of the best. Yes, one of the BEST! She weaves a story ...

    my rating is 4.5 Historical fiction is not my preferred genre, but when it comes to Dickerson books, I can?t help but be engaged from the very beginning. This book was no exception, Truett (don?t you just love that name?) interferes with a wrongful lynching, saving his best frie...

    "You just need to trust me. And trust God." Truett Beverly comes back home to Bethel Springs, Alabama after finishing medical school because he's needed there. He didn't expect to have to fight a corrupt sheriff, but Sheriff Suggs threatens his childhood friend, so Truett dons a bla...

    What's that? Another Melanie Dickerson book?! Why, yes, yes it is! Magnolia Summer is the first book in Melanie Dickerson?s brand new Southern Seasons series. Ms. Dickerson changes things up from her usual fare by taking us to the 1880s in the Deep South of the United States. Instead...

    With this new book, Melanie Dickerson has taken a different direction from her popular ?fairytale? books. In doing so, she has proven that she can also write Southern historical fiction with flair. This is not a typical romance novel. In this storyline that is set during a difficul...

    This book is so good! I haven't read a book this fast in a long time. About 4 hours total between two nights! I am still laughing and shaking my head over the witty banter between the main characters. I love how it's like watching a movie unfold and you can see the characters in yo...

    Melanie Dickerson has created a unique cast of characters and set them in a country trying to rebuild after it was torn apart by war. To say I enjoyed this story would be an understatement.  Once I started reading it, I felt like I had fallen into the world created by Ms. Dickerson. F...

    In Magnolia Summer, Dr. Truett Beverly returns to Bethel Springs, Alabama, his hometown, and finds himself in the middle of racial tensions, corruption, and secrets. When an African-American childhood friend is threatened, Truett becomes the Hooded Horseman to save him from Sheriff Sug...

    This story takes place in the late 1800?s. A wonderful cast of characters, including Celia, Lizzie, Will, Truett, Griff, Almira, James, Sheriff Suggs and plenty more, round out this trip to the south about 5 years after the end of the war. Celia returns to her family to help care for...

    This has got the be the most incredible book Melanie Dickerson has ever written. It was just amazing. It has such a powerful message. ?Magnolia Summer? takes place in Northern Alabama, not long after the Civil War. I was excited to read this because racism is obviously a huge issu...

    A sweet, dangerous, and exciting story of life in the deep south fifteen years after the Civil War. Celia strives to leave her stamp on a male-dominated world. She?s ambitious and hard-working, eager to open her own dress shop in bustling Nashville, but duty drags her to her famil...

    3.5 Stars. Overall, it was an interesting story with a good mix of action and romance. I really liked Truett because he seemed to have such a big heart, but I didn?t connect as much with Celia?s character. ...

    Awesome! I loved Truett's mysterious other identity as the Hooded Horseman but I loved why he went to such lengths to save lives even more. Cecila's fear was believable though at times I really wanted to her to just get over it. Truett loves her, why be so indecisive? But it did ...

    I've been a fan of Melanie Dickerson's books for a long time since she wrote her first book, The Healer's Apprentice . I knew she has been wanting to do a Southern historical book. So I was excited when she announced she was coming out with a Southern historical romance I immediately ...

    In her novel Magnolia Summer, book on of the Southern Seasons series, author Melanie Dickerson brings to life her wonderful southern characters and setting. Taking on the challenge of writing outside her regular genre of young adult fairytales, Dickerson writes a splendid and enthralli...

    I like all of Melanie Dickerson's books, but this one was a new flavor and I loved it. While a sweet tale of two young people with very, very mild romance, it is more a story of fighting for justice and survival in a hard time for all. I felt Ms. Dickerson did an excellent job of...

    Honestly, I?ve enjoyed every Melanie Dickerson book that I have read so far. This one is American historical fiction set in 1880?s Alabama with a corrupt county sheriff and a handsome and earnest doctor for a hero. Our heroine Celia has come back to town to help her family after he...

    With this new book, Melanie Dickerson has taken a different direction from her popular ?fairytale? books. In doing so, she has proven that she can also write Southern historical fiction with flair. This is not a typical romance novel. In this storyline that is set during a difficul...

    Melanie Dickerson has created a unique cast of characters and set them in a country trying to rebuild after it was torn apart by war. To say I enjoyed this story would be an understatement.  Once I started reading it, I felt like I had fallen into the world created by Ms. Dickerson. F...
