Magnolia by Kristi Cook Sneak Peek {Giveaway}



Hey GCReaders!!

     Damaris and I are so super excited to share with you a sneak peek of Kristi Cook's new YA contemporary novel coming out on August 2014, Magnolia. We were given the chance to Beta Read it and I have to tell you that when it finished, I wanted more. Kristi wrote her characters so well, that you can easily connect with them. It's a beautifully written story about of romance, survival, friendship and family. You are going to love it! So check out the two chapter sneak peek below!


Magnolia

In Magnolia Branch, Mississippi, the Cafferty and Marsden families are southern royalty. Neighbors since the Civil War, the families have shared vacations, holidays, backyard barbecues, and the overwhelming desire to unite their two clans by marriage. So when a baby boy and girl were born to the families at the same time, the perfect opportunity seemed to have finally arrived.

Jemma Cafferty and Ryder Marsden have no intention of giving in to their parents’ wishes. They’re only seventeen, for goodness’ sake, not to mention that one little problem: They hate each other! Jemma can’t stand Ryder’s nauseating golden-boy persona, and Ryder would like nothing better than to pretend stubborn Jemma doesn’t exist.

But when a violent storm ravages Magnolia Branch, it unearths Jemma’s and Ryder’s true feelings for each other as the two discover that the line between love and hate may be thin enough to risk crossing over.
