Great way to tie up the final characters in this trilogy. It can stand alone, but I recommend reading the other two also. Those are a bit better than this last one - but not much.

This is a fantastic sequal to "Flirting With Disaster" It answers the questions, "Will Amanda and her father Big Max ever forgive each other and what secret is Big Max hiding", and "Will Amanda and Caleb ever get together" a very exciting book.

This is the 3rd & last book in Sherryl Woods's Low Country Trilogy. This is Maggie & Caleb's story. Will Caleb & Maggie & her children find a way to be together? Sherryl Woods again includes serious topics & humor into her story. The story leaves you with a couple of characters that you would like to know more about.

"But it's not as if Amanda O'Leary set out to fall for the most gorgeous (and unattainable)man this side of Soouth Carolina Low Country. It's just that he organized building a cozy home for her and her children at a time when the future looked darker than blackstrap molasses. Not even her own father, the arrogant and wealthy Big Max, would have done as much for her. But that's a whole other kettle of fish."


I really enjoyed reading this tale of struggle, forgiveness and compassion. Sheryl Woods, writes compelling love stories which I totally enjoy reading

This was the last book of the Trilogy and I really liked it a lot. However, it left me feeling a little cheated because some of the plot loose ends were never tied up. Leads me to think there are other books out there about some of the characters in this book. All in all, I really loved this book and the entire Trilogy. Highly recommend it.

Great ending for the Charlston Triology.

Book 1. "The Back Up Plan"
Book 2. "Flirting With Disaster"
Book 3. "Waking Up In Charleston"

This book can be read alone with no problem but I would highly recommend reading the first two in this series before cracking this one open. All of the characters in this third novel are from the previous two stories and it makes it all the more enjoyable to read this one if you understand the secondary characters beforehand.

Waking Up in Charleston is the story of young widow Amanda O'Leary and her love for the town pastor, Caleb. Amanda is trying to put her life back together after loosing her husband, her home and all the "stuff" that matters most. She has been estranged from her dad, Big Max, since she married her late husband and has been fighting to survive without the very wealthy backing of him ever since.

Caleb is falling in love, has fallen in love, and wants to give Amanda and her three kids the world. But he thinks he can't give her EVERYTHING she wants so he fights his feelings and tries his best to stay away... We all know how THAT works out!!! In the meantime he is trying to befriend Big Max secretly, in hopes of bringing he and his daughter Amanda back together before its too late.

Sherryl Woods is an excellent writer. She sucks you in with her amazing talent for writing characters that become your friends and family. Strongly recommend this series for anyone who enjoys humor, love, friendship, romance and family in their stories.

Oh God! She's in love with the preacher.
But it's not as if Amanda O'Leary set out to fall for the most gorgeous(and unattainable0man this side of South caarolina Low Country. It's just that he organized building a cozy home for her and her children at a time when the future looked darker than blackstrap molasses. Not even her father, the arrogant and wealthy Big Max, would have done as much for her. But thats a whole other kettle of fish.
Caleb can count on fingers and toes why his attraction to Amanda is plain wrong. How can he objectivly counsel this chin-up spitfire without letting his emotions--and imagination--run wild? And now that Big Max has burdened him with not one secret, but 2, he knows his priorities shoud be mending fences between father and daughter--but he can;t help trying to build a place for himself in her heart first.

Now it's Amanda O'Leary's turn to find love and she finds it with the handsome preacher who helped get her home built. This is the third in Sherryl Woods romances set in the South Carolina Low Country.

The charming and emotional conclusion to Sherryl Woods' Low Country Trilogy. This novel focuses mostly on Amanda and Caleb's story--the preacher is looking out for the widow and her three children, and ultimately wants to make that a permanent and personal responsibility. Woods creates wonderful supporting characters and a very appealing story.

While I don't like this book as much as Woods' Flirting with Disaster, I do like Woods' ability to create interesting characters and scenarios in the community surrounding the main protagonists.
