I think it is safe to say now that yes, book 2 *is* about Justin! It's a dual timeline, dual point-of-view story, switching back and forth between him and his love interest, freshman and senior years. It has been a bit of a struggle for me, getting these two characters just right, but I am loving their story :)

Thank you so much for reading and the wonderful compliment. I'm humbled xoxoxo(less)

Hi Dani! Thanks for reading :)

Yes, the third book in that series, Accidentally Married on Purpose, released this week. While that completes the Robicheaux clan, I love Magnolia Springs way too much to stop there. Plus, I've gotten tons of requests for a book about Charlie, a character you meet in book 3, and I think his book will start off the spin-off series. That should be out early next year.(less)
