About the Book

Maggie Marovich couldn’t save her father or her home from Hurricane Katrina, but she’s dedicated her life to meteorology so she can warn others when the monster storms approach. Except…she works three hours inland and rarely risks returning to her childhood hometown of Ocean Springs, Mississippi. Both her single-parent sister and the ship pilot Maggie once loved refused to leave the Coast, despite Maggie’s requests. Now a hurricane’s headed toward Mississippi, and Maggie’s sister is seriously injured, leaving Maggie little choice but to head south—into the storm.

The water and tides flow through Josh Bergeron’s veins, and he can’t imagine giving up piloting—even for the love of his life, the infuriating Magnolia Marovich. He tried to move on without her, marrying and having a child. But after his wife abandons him and his little boy, his career choice is threatened by the weight of his parental responsibilities. Moving next door to Maggie’s sister and sharing their child care seems like the perfect set-up. Until Maggie blows back into town.

Being forced to lean on Josh for help washes up the wreckage in Maggie’s faith. Where was God during the destruction of Katrina? Why do some prayers seem to go unanswered? Between the hurricane looming in the Gulf and another gale raging in her heart, can Maggie overcome her past and find the trust to truly live? (Goodreads)



My Thoughts

Maggie has lived a lot of life. She has been through so much. So it makes sense that when chaos hits she tries to control the one thing that she can change...Staying away from the coast. Especially when a hurricane is heading right towards her hometown. However, family comes first for her. Even though it ends up putting her in a very awkward situation. Maggie is riddled with fear of past events reoccurring. She is hesitant to trust, to lower the defenses she has built around her heart. 

God has a funny way of using circumstances around us to show His faithfulness and His glory. Trusting HIM to carry me through each day is the best decision I can make, for myself, my family...my sanity. 

Janet has given us a story about overcoming the past. Trampling the fear that would hold us prisoner. And ultimately, walking the path that the Lord has laid out for us. 

Any lover of Contemporary Romance is sure to be swept into the tides of Magnolia Storms. Filled with adorable kids (J.D. and his captain cereal 😍), rekindled romance, the strength of family, and the power and love of God...This is a book you won't want to miss. 

I received a complimentary copy of Magnolia Storms from the author. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine alone.
