About the Book
ila Mae Guidry is a Southern girl through and through. As a fourth-generation Latter-day Saint in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, she’s proud of her heritage as both a Southerner and a Saint—and she doesn’t take kindly to people who disparage either. Ten years ago, Max Archer was just that kind of jerk. As the mission president’s son, Max spent his entire three years mocking the South . . . and teenage Lila. After Max’s family moved away, Lila forgot about her sworn enemy. Almost.
When a new job brings a grown-up Max back to Baton Rouge, Lila is less than thrilled with his reappearance, especially since everyone seems intent on throwing her together with this old adversary. Yet fight as she may, Lila soon realizes resistance is futile—their connection is undeniable. Max embodies everything she wants in a man—except perhaps the most important thing—her life is rooted in the city she loves, but his dreams are bigger than Baton Rouge. With such mismatched visions of the future, Max and Lila are faced with a life-altering decision: jeopardize their aspirations or risk losing love.
About the Author
Melanie Bennett Jacobson is an avid reader, amateur cook, and champion shopper. She lives in Southern California with her husband and children and a series of doomed houseplants, and is currently pursuing a Masters degree in writing for children and young adults.
As always, Melanie has written another novel that is not only cute and sweet, but humorous as well. I always know without a shadow of a doubt when I pick up one of Melanie’s books that it will have a fun romance story, as well as leave me grinning from ear to ear and of course laughing!!! I love how Melanie ties in real-life situations in all her stories, bringing to life her characters and the environment around them. Southern Charmed is a fantastic story, taking place in Melanie’s home town, Baton Rouge, Louisiana; with the help of her matchmaking mother and a member of the bishopric, Lila Mae Guidry keeps getting into situations with Max Archer and is even put on a committee with him to put together a multi-stake conference for young adults ages eighteen to thirty. This story is an absolute delight and readers will not want to put it down. I would recommend this novel to readers that enjoy LDS romance.
