Magnolia by Kristi Cook

Magnolia by Krisi Cook
Published by Simon & Schuster on August 5, 2014

Summary: "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." -- From Goodreads

I thought this book was a cute, summer beach read.  Jemma and Ryder have this adorable love/hate relationship going on.  The storm adds more depth to the story, with Jemma and Ryder working together to make it through.  Magnolia is one of those books I'd recommend for anyone looking for a cute contemporary.

Disclosure: I borrowed this book from my local library.
