Maggie Sweet's story is both sad and tender. It all starts when, just before her 20th high school reunion, Maggie's husband spends their vacation money on side-by-side cemetery plots. From there Maggie decides to re-invent herself, Southern style.

I really enjoyed this delightful story! From the time she was a little girl, Maggie Sweet has longed to become a hairdresser. But she gets married right after finishing beauty school, and it seems her life is passing her by without giving her a chance to realize her dream. Until her high school sweetheart moves back to town.....

Just wonderful!

Note: This is the paperback version. The book was re-released in hardback in 2001 and titled somply "Maggie Sweet".

An easy, fun book to read. Written in a very "southern style". The characters were realistic and relatable. Maggie's been out of high school for 20 years and has spent those years trying to please everyone else; now she is starting to wonder why. The story was well told and fast paced. Great light reading for the beach or vacation.

Maggie Sweet is a charming first novel. Complete with novel and interesting characters. Not to mention lingerie parties, Harvey Wallbanger cake and shampoos and sets at the Curl and Swirl.

Maggie Sweet is a woman who has had no control over her life since she left her true love Prom night of her senior year. Now her 20th reunion is coming up. A look back on her life makes her take notice of all the things wrong. Maggie has to decide if she wants to continue living under her husband's thumb or get the life she always wanted.

At first, the book was a little slow for me. But I actually like the book once I got into it.

A charming first novel with lively, endearing characters-not to mention lingerie parties, Harvey Wallbanger cakes and shampoo-and-sets at the Curl & Swirl.

I loved this book and its continuation in Betty Sweet Tells All, although I would have enjoyed both protagonists developing a backbone a little sooner in both stories.
