Publisher's Summary

At 41, Vivian Armstrong Gray's life as an investigative journalist is crumbling. Humiliated after taking a bullet in her backside during an exposé, Vivi learns that she's pregnant, jobless, and very hormonal. This explains why she says "yes" to a dreadful job covering suburban living back home in Georgia, a column she must write incognito. Down South, it's her sister's ballroom dance studio that becomes her undercover spot where she learns about the local life - and where unexpected friendships develop. As she digs up her long buried roots, she starts to wonder if life inside the picket fence is really so bad after all.

Painful. And not in a good way.

What could Wendy Wax have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

The story line has promise, but it just goes on and on and on. I'm well into the second half and I feel like the story should be getting somewhere. But the main character, Vivian, just goes through the same routine over and over again. She doesn't grow or learn, nor does she seem to want to. As a result, the reader must muddle through her agonizingly bad decisions. There's one single thread of the story that I'm interested in reading the conclusion, but I don't think I can bring myself to continue the story. It's. That. Painful.

What did you love best about Magnolia Wednesdays?

Being from the South I laughed oftened, because her tales of the way people act in the South were so true. Just a nice clean so true story line.
